Summer trades.. I just don't get it!

I still can't wrap my brain around what has happened to the Celts this summer.
First Doc.. he goes to the west coast a helluva comute! Whose decision was that DA or DR?
What were the real terms? a lowly draft pick?
I don't mind so much as I felt that the marriage was over for sure..as much as I respect DR.
but how did that happen?
Pierce..Was it his decision or was DA not willing to sign him? What a loss, the team captain and hopefully a career Celt shuffled off to NY for who? and for how long and for how much?? ?? Did Paul want to go and what were the negotiations like? What kind of contract and for how long? Did Paul want to leave??
Kevin..Was it his decision or .. (must have been as he had a no trade clause. ) KG had a serious loyality to CPP and might have been pressured to leave with him. For how long and for how much??
PP and KG didn't really affect our draft pics and essentially we got nothing for PP,KG,JT and White when compared with their value to the Celtics. Yes, those players acquired weren't bad Wallace and Humphries are really good players but Paul and KG were so valuable to the Celtics especially in light of DRs'departure!!
Future first round draft picks from the Nets are probably useless as they are probably going to get #30.
The Celtics had a chance to build a dominating team if they would have just spent some of that (top of the revenue heap) bean town $$. It took an owner from another country to recoginize that $$ wins championships, something that our ownership doesn't understand. With some over the cap help, PP,KG,RR,JG,AB,JT,KO BP, JS and others along with some high$ free agents could have been a springboard to a Celtic Dynasty. As it stands unless PP and KG come back next year it looks like a long rebuild! We have a good team going forward but probably not close to the ECF for 4-6 years.
I really respect PP and KG and their decision and would hope they both will come back to retire..KG here or to MN or both....his choice. PP is a Celtic Legend IMO!
I truly expect the Nets to knock off the Heat this year! GO PAUL AND KEVIN!
