    Looks like the "sports guy" really struck on nerve with some of you. Probably cause most of you know he "hit the nail on the head". Like I said, the exact date that the Celtics began their return to mediocrity will be recorded as February 24th, 2011.

    On the positive side, maybe it'll end up with Danny Ainge getting fired. It's not like he's a exceptional GM (like the Lakers Jerry West or Mitch Kupchak).

    whatever. Bill Simmons is a good sports writer and a great comedian but he is well known for his wrong statements/opinions. I remember him ripping DA apart for trading Randy Foye in the 2006 draft (we got Rondo at the end) and then when Rondo did better than Foye, Simmons never NEVER gave DA credit.

    In Danny's mind you had to trade Perk.
    He's been searching for a suitable back-up for Pierce and Allen since he decided it was foolish to pay Posey.

    He tried Giddens, TA,Walker,Daniels, Wafer.
    He passed on Ron Artest for Sheed, and Matt Barnes for Daniels.
    He was feeling a little egg on his face.
    Now his mistakes in those cases were going to be highlighted in the playoffs by Carmelo, Lebron, Wade,Iguodala, Artest,Odom(SF),Kobe,Turkoglu, etc.
    He was trying cover his azs for his past errors.
    If he kept Posey he would have drafted DeAndre Jordan, hopefully.
    If we developed DeAndre we have no need for Sheed, right?
    We definitely have no need for JO in that scenario.
    That midlevel money could have been pocketed to resign Perkins!( or help keep Eddie House)
    We would have no need for Green either because Posey knew his role and was perfect in it.

    Ainge's post Garnett trades and 1st round draft picks lately have not revitalized this franchise.
    We add Shaq and he is just an insurance policy, not a vital cog. (as he should be)

    Re: Sports Guy on why the Perk Trade destroyed the Celtics. DA lost his mind!!!

    Qdaddy, if trading Perk in return for a team that now has minutes for Shaq and JON, along with having 6 extra fouls with an offensive minded center like Kris, along with a more than adequate back up for PP at the three in Jeff Green, along with the size and potential of Troy Murphy, is not an upgrade, then what is your excuse for the Lakers 4 game losing streak. That streak can possibly now cost them home court with the Celtics and/or the Heat.

    Bottom line is that the Celtics and Lakers have been preserving their "intensity" for when it counts. Perk is better off with the Thunder and the Celtics upgraded their chances to win it all. The chemistry stuff is all media hype. Guys making $55 Million to $100 Million should not have any problems remembering their overall goal of winning another ring. If Rondo was such a great friend of Perk's than Rondo was well aware of Perk's decision to reject the $22 Million offer and his plans to walk next year.

    Re: Sports Guy on why the Perk Trade destroyed the Celtics. DA lost his mind!!!

    This article strikes a chord because someone can finally explain why this trade was so bad!!!

    Can we stop with the 'well we were going to lose Perk anyway' crap?  We have no idea whether there will even be a basketball season next year!  Once a new CBA is done, the rules may have allowed us to keep Perkins.  Now we'll never know!!!!

    Also, the idea that you trade away a starting Center for a backup Small Forward is cause for firing any GM.  You can't coach height and we drafted this kid (Green) once.  Flipping him for Ray Allen and a title was brilliant!!  (See Danny gets some credit from me)

    The idea of leaning on Shaq and JO for the playoffs is the equivalent to building your castle on a bed of sand.  One injury to one of those guys and bye-bye title chances.  Even with them, we're tall but not exactly athletic.  Trading Perkins also ensures the window for championships closes this year!!  Perk could at least play pick and roll defense and clog the lane.  Kristic doesn't know where to go on defense.  We all know defense wins championships which is why the Bulls will be playing OKC in the finals!

    Danny also traded one of 'our guys' and I would have rather lost with Perk than watch this team limp into the playoffs.  They traded away their identity.  They're soft and if you don't believe me, watch Noah in that last game.  Nobody showed anyone up when Perk was there...now its like the little brother can finally beat the big brother and we all have to hear the little guy talk about it. 

    I guess Danny just wanted to be part of both of the worst trades in Celtics history.  The first he was the player traded, now he's doing the trading!!

    Celtssox,
    Excellent point Rondo had to know all of it. I see these posters longing for Perk and wonder how many of these people watched Perkins drop and mishandle balls over and over the last two years and did not yell out everytime he got the ball"Oh no!' as he committed yet another turnover.

    The guy may have set picks and screens but he did not even play at theend of games.  How much value can a starter like that have?

    The only problem with what Doc has done is not give Green more minutes and worked him into the end of game situations.  People who say Green can't play defense are crazy. The guy is a stud capable of blocking more shots than Perk ever could.

    You may not know this, but for the thunder everytime they had green on the floor, the other team averaged roughly 10 more points a game. Blocking shots is not good defense, it's usually something you do after you have been beat on defense. 

    Green plays good defense at one postion the 3 the same place paul Pierce plays. He is horrible on defense at the 4 where he gets pushed around by people like carlos boozer. That's why doc does not put him on the floor. Don't take this wrong, but doc knows more than you.

    I don't make excuses for the Lakers. Remember last year when the Lakers lost 4 of their last 5 games? How did that season turn out. Losses happen. Home court is something the Lakers would like to have, but it's not the "kiss of death" if they don't get it. In last years Finals, the C's swiped the HCA from the Lakers. The Lakers then proceeded to swipe it back.

    The problem with your scenario is that Shaq and JON aren't filling those extra minutes while they're in the trainers room.

    I think you're undervaluing the "chemistry" aspect. Doc Rivers seems to think it's pretty important. So does Bill Simmons. The Bulls seem to have that "chemsitry thing" going for them right now.

    Re: Sports Guy on why the Perk Trade destroyed the Celtics. DA lost his mind!!!

    Concord, I completely agree with your comments. Perk is a great team player and a good person, however if you look at the minutes played in the finals in 2008, including not playing in Game 5, it's obvious that he did not have a very big impact in the series. In addition, Doc typically had Perk on the bench in the fourth quarter crunch time. How many shots can Perk block from the bench. I don't always agree with Danny Ainge's moves, however in this case; (1) they had no chance of going all the way with the team before the trade and have every opportunity to go all the way with the new group, and; (2) Perk was going to walk next year with nothing in return. At minimum, the C's were able to obtain Jeff Green as a restricted agent.

    Bottom line if the team doesn't win this one is on the players and Doc not on Danny.

    jtkl,
    No offense taken about Doc knowing more but I think the time has to be made for Green to play plus thirty minutes every game.  He will get better and better if he plays.  Your comments about his defense have to have been figured in when the trade was made.  They need to have him on the floor more than 19 minutes as they did last night or this trade has no purpose. 

    You can defend Doc but remember there is something wrong if you don't play this guy more minutes when you see overplayed players like Ray and Pierce dragging themselves through big games like the Bulls game and playing like zombies.  If they are tired we lose.  It is that clear, I don't need Doc to tell me that.  Why was the trade made then if Green was not someone capable of playing more than twenty minutes this year? Please explain.

    Re: Sports Guy on why the Perk Trade destroyed the Celtics. DA lost his mind!!!

    Simmons is one of the best of the best. He is a die hard Celtic fan, and so is his father.

    With that being said, I believe that he felt a serious emotional let down after the game and he had to vent. I felt the same way.

    Thibs has the done a great job in Chicago. He has them playing first class defense.

    On the other hand, the Celtics have not yet recovered from the Perkins trade, and they may not. However, The Celtics had a serious off night on offense, missing many open shots, Shaq was not playing, and Doc decided during the third quarter, that team rest was more important than winning. By putting the starters back in, when things were slipping a way, Doc could have probably salvaged the game. He decided not to do it.

    We will not know if Danny was right or wrong until the play-offs. Shaq will be back, there will be no back to backs, and everyone will be focused.

    Simmons may be right, however, I believe it is too early to make the judgement that he makes. I do believe that if the Celtics do not win a championship, that Danny Ainge will be vilified to the level of Bill Buckner or worse.

    The Gamble was, as Simmons stated, without precedent.

    You're right to suggest those two teams could make it.  I just see a Lakers team that's slowing down and a Spurs team that's just too old.  The Spurs may be able to beat OKC, but I think the Lakers do not match up well against them or OKC. 

    OKC is currently 4th and got stronger by adding Perkins.  I'll stand by my prediction because unlike most people who post here, I actually watch basketball.  I watch teams that aren't the Celtics.  OKC looks really good with Ibaka and Perkins in the middle and let's not forget Durrant and Westbrook!!

    Qdaddy, you are sort of making my point except for the chemistry thing. In my opinion the Lakers losing to Cleveland and/or the last 4 games really doesn't mean anything. The only impact would be the home court issue if the Celtics or Heat beat Chicago. The same goes for the Celtics. The simply didn't want to burn themselves out before the playoffs start. Therefore, other than giving up the seed, the losses really are meaningless.  

    With respect to chemistry I do think it is very important, however the Celtics boxed themselves into a corner where they had to choose between upgrading the overall talent and the old chemistry. Danny rolled the dice that Shaq, JON, and Kris was the needed upgrade over Perk and that by adding Jeff Green, there is an added boost to the badly needed offense on the second unit. If the guys earning the big bucks can't get over losing someone who was walking next year then I guess Banner #18 is not all that important.

    On the other hand, if Danny knew that Shaq cannot come back, then his gamble on the future is completely unfair to the Celtics faithful who pay good money and expect that the C's would offer their best efforts to win another championship.

    Only time will tell if the fans became the real victims!!

    As much as I like the Spurs (I live in SA) they won't make it to the Finals. They are a good team but their defense isn't very good and Duncan isn't what he used to be. They are also very weak at the 5. It will be either LA or OKC. Personally, I think that it'll be OKC. LA is too dependent on KB and Bynum is too fragile. That means its essentially a two man team with KB and Gasol. OKC has too much depth for them. In the East it'll be either Boston or Chicago. I hate to say this, and I hope that I am wrong, but I have to give the edge to the Bulls UNLESS Shaq gets healthy.
