    Gasol, David Lee, OJ Mayo and Derrick Williams...

    BLOW IT UP !

    Time for the Core 4 to hit the road and reap a new harvest of young talent

    I predict Ray Allen and KG come back next season as free agent backups anyway...

    and how do we get these players?

    at the very least it would be major multiple player deals to get the cash to work

    We are all grasping at straws.  Things have bottomed at the All Star break though so things could happen.  The problem is we are selling at a time when our stock could not be lower.

    I say trade Rondo and Pierce in separate trades. Rondo would include another young stud (like a Gordon) that a rebuilding team doesn't control. Pierce goes to a contender for a serviceable big man and a 1st rounder. Use JO, Sasha, Dooling, Wilcox, and Daniels as salary equalizers. After KG and Ray's contracts are up, that leaves you with a lot of serviceable parts in Bass, Pietrus, Steamer, JJ, Bradley, and Moore. You also have 3 1st rounders in a deep draft and a TON of cap room with the big 3 done. You lure in a solid FA or two and you have the beginnings of a very solid team going. They're going to have to rebuild, but there's a great opportunity this year to make it a relatively short turnaround.

    Re: Gasol, David Lee, OJ Mayo and Derrick Williams...

    I see the name, David Lee, in the headline...I really like him...reminds me of Dave Cowens.

    There are so many different threads dealing with the same topic...trades...so I've copied and pasted this which I posted separately under " ODOM HAS YET TO LIVE UP TO EXPECTATIONS BY THE MAVS".

    Is there any chance we can pick him up cheap ? And would we want him ? Opinions Please ???

    I live in SF Bay area(45 years) and raised in Maine(21 years) and roots run deep so a Boston team fan first but local fan team too. I was dealt a double devastating blow when NFL Giants beat 49ers and then I wanted Patriots to avenge their loss to Giants in SB a few year back and also the Giants beating SF. Ooops, sorry this has nothing to do with BB.

    I go to GS Warrior games frequently. There is a chant “Beat LA, Beat LA” in the stands as the locals hate the Lakers as much as we do. In sports bars when Boston plays LA, 75% of fans root for Boston. Was at the game last night but against the Clippers which GS won.  Monta Ellis is awesome as he out shined Chris Paul scoring 32 to 24 points. I would trade Monta, tattoos and all,  even up for Rondo any day. But what really impressed me was a 6’9” forward/center, David Lee, who scored 24 and got 13 rebounds. He’s averaging 20 pts per game.

    I am a septuagenarian so I go back to Cousy days so definitely remember the 70s when we won NBA title in 1974 & 1976 with a guy who was also a 6’9” forward/center, Dave Cowens.  David Lee made me nostalgic as he hustled and was a fiesty scrapper reminding me of Cowens. I know he’s not the 6’11’/7’ footer we hope to get but I’d still like him on the Celtics. By the way, good to see our old friend, 5’9”, Nate Williams coming off the bench  and averaging 10 pts in very few minutes per game.

    Also, I was very impressed with the Clippers’ other guard, Mo Williams, who is averaging 14 pts per game and got 22 last night. I wouldn’t take him on a wash trade for Rondo but maybe they’d like Ray Allen

    It may not be obvious to you at this point but Rondo's stock is plummeting by the minute... he was already vastly overrated but seeing that he is a complete headcase and that without being surrounded by great players he is nowhere near being on the same level of the actual good point guards in the league there is no way you are getting a good player in return for him, you might get another overrated, overpaid headcase but you are not getting a building block.........

    i can't agree with that. the kid's putting up numbers on a team where no one else can score. he's basically a one-man show. can he shoot? no. but he has a very talented skill set. he just has no one else helping him out on this team. it'd really be better for rondo to be traded to a younger team. i will still root for him like i root for perk and baby.

    So a cry baby head case that has p oop in his diaper because he was not added to the all-star team is finally putting up numbers that regulard point guards do on a regular basis and he is never guarded has a lot of upside?

    Give me Kyrie Irving over Rondo any time.......  again Rondo's stock is plummeting by the minute.......

    Too many people allow the media, etc. form their opinions.... Reggie Miller said the other night "without Rondo they are a very good team but with Rondo they are a contender"......  on the flip side I believe while Rondo was out one of the Cs was quoted as saying "the ball moves a lot better it is not stuck in Rondo's hands all the time"........  wow that has only been true for 6 years now.....  hopefully soon our version of Mookie Blaylock will be nothing but a memory stagnating another team's offense and chirping like a baby bird and acting like a diva...

    When I said I was a spetuagenarian, I was not inviting any comments about age. I play Super Senior over 65 USTA tennis tournaments and also a lot of singles and beat guys 30 years younger. Yup, I admit to using spin serves, slices, top spin, lobs, drop shots etc so it's not, obviously, a physical dominance. I jog a 10 min mile, swim 20 laps a day and earned a brown belt Karate belt 13 years ago at 60. I boxed in college and in the USMC. I am a combat Marine Officer Viet Nam Veteran.

    Don't know your age but based on your comment you do not respect your elders.
    You will be elderly too...maybe ??? Nasty comments to someone in person might affect your health. In the future, try to stick to sports comments on these blogs. please.
