Re: Gerald Wallace to Cavs for a TPE?

I think everyone is forgetting that Gerald Wallace is a very good player and was on the All Defensive team in 2010 , He's tough, he scores from everywhere, he doesn't need to be the #1 guy to be effective, the guy is a better player than Pierce at this point.....
I can see Humphries being used as a trading chip at the deadline with his expiring contract , but Wallace is better than any player the Celtics have gotten since KG and Ray Allen. $30M for 3yrs ? That's hardly deadweight on the Celtics payroll , Wallace could easily lead the team in scoring and is also big enough to play alongside Jeff Green. Let's see how he looks in training camp.
I think the trade is great but I don't understand where Bogans fits in all this.....I hope he is packaged along with Humphries.
I don't understand why anyone would want Josh Smith or Richard Jefferson over Gerald Wallace. Josh Smith will cost $15M x 4 (at least) and Wallace is better than Jefferson.
You people are seriously underestimating Gerald Wallace. I think he is locked up at reasonable money and 3yrs is not an eternity .
I think Brooklyn has one chance this season to win it all and I don't think Pierce and KG will make them any better than 4th seed.....Miami, Indiana and Chicago are still better.
This deal will destroy the Brooklyn Nets , even if they win 55 games this season they will be running on fumes come playoff time and will be lucky to make it out of the first round.

CELTICS ARE NOW LOADED WITH DRAFT PICKS AND ASSETS ASSETS ASSETS ASSETS.....
