[QUOTE]Yeah, Cs players have always carried themselves with the highest integrity. I mean, Paul Pierce didn't tank the end of the 06-07 season to give Boston a better chance of landing the #1 seed. Which they didn't get, but sitll got a top #5 pick that they turned into Ray Allen, and then there was the buddy-buddy Ainge McHale trade that brought KG (thanks old friend!!). Players quitting, questionable trades with friends of the franchise....sounds like a constant theme espoused about the Lakers the last few days. Look in the mirror.

Are you insane? No, seriously!
First of all, Pierce tanking is a creation of your imagination. The Lakers disgraceful cheapshots are proveable documented events that actually happened.
Secondly, do any of you people realize how idiotic it sounds when you start talking about the Garnett trade being a gift? Ainge gave up a good young player on the rise (that turned into an All Star) and many other parts in order to get a guy that was in his 30s.
Kevin McHale's job/career is on the line. Do you people honestly believe that McHale or anyone else, is weakening their team in order to help a "buddy" Some guy he played with twenty years ago. Who he may or may not have been freinds with back then. And who he probably hasn't talked to since they played together?
They're teammates, not family. Would you put your job on the line and make yourself look stupid just to help somebody that you worked with 20 years ago? Think about how stupid that sounds.
Mchale made that trade because he thought it would make the Wolves better. That's it. Get a grip.
