    I'm more dissapointed in trading semeh erden and Harangody for a second round pick, that doesn't make sense to me.

    As for all the Dwight Howard talk, the C's mentality isnsn't to worry about an opposing teams' All Star - - let him get his points, the Celts will beat them at their game aa a team.

    i would have rather traded Rondo in the offseason and paid Perkins.  This team would be better with Perkins at Center and an above average point guard like Kirk Hinrich. 

    Perkins, Garnett, Pierce, Allen, Hinrich

    Krstic, Garnett, Pierce, Allen, Rondo

    What team do you like better???

    The C's have already beat the Magic without Perkins. Why is everyone worrying about Howard. Did alot of you guys forget that the Perkins has only played 12 games this year.

    You can't be serious. The C's will not go anywhere without Rondo. Put down the pipe dude, Rondo is the glue on this team. You would actually take Perk over Rondo........WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Answer: Krstic, Garnett, Pierce, Allen, Rondo

    1) IF Shaq is healthy, he's been foul prone the last few games he played before the injury.

    2) JON is out of the picture.

    3) Krstic can't handle the centers in the Eastern Conference.

    Basically, we just got real THIN on the front line. Am I missing something here??

    We can't beat the Lakers with what we have now, much less make it to the ECF.

    Maybe they are worried about the bad knee.  Big man with bad knee tends to not last too long after a major surgery.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Stupid Trade Danny!! : Your kidding me!!!! No championship this year because they got rid of Perkins!! HA HA HA HA HA HA. Your right, the celtics were such a bad team without perkins the entire year. O boy, how did they make it without him! HA HA HA HA. The fact is Perk has been in the league 8 years, hasn't improved in the past few years, plays inconsistantly, and gets in the way of people. He is not worth 30 million over 4 years, he has done nothing to ever show that he is worth more then 1 million a year. He is terribly overrated, and if you watch games he plays in, and see how he moves around the court, you would know he doesn't have a high basketball IQ. Good riddens!
    Posted by rpn123321[/QUOTE]

    rpn, the issue isn't regular season.  The issue is having a defensive/rebounding center who can play those tough playoff games.  That's what the C's may be missing.  We can do a lot of games without Perk, but if Shaq, Kristic, and JON are the only big men, we don't have the strength to battle Lakers bigs or some other bigs.   I bet there's more to come......like Sheed coming back or some other big being bought out.  Something else is happening here or Danny wouldn't trade Semih and Luke for a 2nd round pick.

    Dont like it AT ALL on the surface, esp. losing Perks 10 boards a night and Celts-like defense.  Cant afford to lose any rebounds on this team!  But, I DO trust Danny to make the right moves.

    Partially right.  There's no way you trade Rondo.  However, Rondo is NOT the glue - KG is the glue.  Don't fool yourself, KG is the single most important Celtic is many ways.   Nevertheless, I agree that the comment about trading Rondo instead is just crazy!!!

    In Nate we lost a fantastic cheerleader, someone who could score in bursts, played hard and hustled. In Perkins we lost our hopes for a Championship.
    Let us pray that Krstic and Green can live up to those we gave up.

    Very surprised what has gone on today. A little stunned. With these trade looks like we are putting a team together to beat  the Bulls and SA. Hope it all works. Thanks Perk, Nate,Semi and Luke a least Perk and Nate got traded to a up coming team. That could all so favor OKC to up end the Fake show. The C's could very well sign him back next season, but don't think that would happen. I'll support the C's with this one today, but stunned right now.
    Always been a big fan of Jeff Green on both ends of the court. The Altantic Div. has had some big upgrades in the last few days.

    I'm sorry I have very little faith in DA when it comes to roster moves. He is the one who brought in Nate twice! when some of us knew he didn't fit in with the team, guess who was right? Now if he let go Semi for Rasheed I will lose my mind!!!!

    Well I don't think this deal is that bad...

    TAKE A LOOK:

    We basically traded Perkins for Green , Kristic and Murphy

    We could do worse right? I like it!

    Tough losing Perk, but it looks like a good move.  Clearly there's another move coming too.  The trade with Cleveland wouldn't have happened if Ainge was done. 

    It's a gamble at the center spot, but it's a move that could help this year.  Plus we get the Clippers 2012 1st rounder as well?  That 1st rounder plus Green could be major assets moving ahead in 2 years with Rondo leading the way.

    With Perkins, I thought the Celts had a great chance for another title. Now Im not at ALL sure!! I dont know that Kyrstic is another Perkins! These new guys had BETTER get used to playing Celts defense!

    Re: Stupid Trade Danny!!

    Like every deal, this one has pros and cons, but I think you're wrong about saying its a "stupid trade Danny!!".  I would never have guessed it and thought there was no way they'd trade Perk, but Danny has guts.  In one day, he gave us a chance to win this year AND a chance to be relevant/good after the Big 3 contracts expire:

    We unloaded Perk (wants lots of money and extension next year in conflict with BBD and clearly, BBD is more valuable to us)

    Unloaded Nate (wasn't delivering anyway)

    Got rid of Semih and Luke and picked up a second round draft choice which could be high second round the way Cleveland is headed.

    Got rid of Marquis Daniels (Career likely over) and got cash

    Picked up a first round pick (lottery protected) for 2012.

    Picked up Jeff Green - very athletic SF who can help NOW.  

    In all, he has a younger, more athletic team and left room to build with either draft picks or free agents in the coming 2 years AND left roster this year to add another player (someone off buyout like Rip or Murphy or bring in Sheed who would not hurt our long term salary structure).   

    Not all bad, eventhough giving up Perk will definitely hurt our D and rebounding.

    Re: Stupid Trade Danny!!

    I don't like trades, but I trust the basketball minds in the Celtic's front office.

    I will miss Perk and Nate, but I'm glad they're going to a good team.  I feel real bad about losing Semi whom I think has fantastic upside as well as Luke.

    As for the guys we got, I'm in a wait and see mode.

    But Perk, I can't get over that one.  I'm a big Perk fan and I believe his toughness and defense will be missed, and I also worry about the chemistry of the team, but they are pros and should be focused on winning the title, and if these moves gives us a better chance, then we will have to just suck it up and move on.

    Agree, don't think even Troy Murphy will help restore the grit and toughness that once separated the Celts from the rest of the NBA.

    Why is it so hard for smart GM's like Theo (JD Drew, Renteria, etc) and Danny (Green, Murphy, etc) to stop crushing on players that don't make sense?
