In Response to Tony Parker on the block. Get him!
[QUOTE]San Antonio looking to trade Tony Parker before he becomes a FA next year?? This could be an opportunity for the Celtics to build a quality championship team and address current weaknesses Trade Rondo and Jermaine O'Neil for Tony Parker and Richard Jefferson We get a well rounded PG who can shoot and plays a solid consistent game and a quality SF that we sorely need. To me Parker for Rondo is a no brainer and as soon as Perkins gets healthy, we don't need 3 centers, not counting Erden. Of courrse there are probably trade resrictions with the above players, but find a way to make it happen!!

OK. Lets stop and think about this for a second....
Rondo is first-off much younger than parker and doesn't have the tony parker injury problems that have been happening the last 2 seasons. Rondo is a budding super star and is a top 3 pg in this league. I love Parker, but he cannot imporve anymore and Rondo isn't even near the ceiling. Parker counldn't shoot either when he entered the league and Rondo will get it and already has proven that he will be a better shooter (not the best, but better). Rondo is the best player on the Celtics, every sports writer and broadcasters states that too, and Parker would be the 4th or 5th best player on the team if the trade were to happen.
RONDO IS THE CELTICS IN TWO YEARS AND BEYOND. If Parker comes in then we have nothing in two years.
Giving up O'neal for Jefferson makes no sense. Then we would give up our main goal of the offseason, GETTING BIGGER. The C's cannot contend with LA's length if we lose another big.
Let's not forget to mention that Jefferson still hasn't proven himself in the league and is the worst player in this trade.
We would give up the 1st and 3rd best players in this trade for the 2nd and 4th. WHAT! WHY?! Not to mention a whole disruption of team chemistry.
I have faith in Danny and am 100% behind the Celtics. He will make something happen for that elusive SF before the trade dealine without giving up our best player.
