R U kidding me? Danny would trade Rondo straight up for Cousins in a second. Anybody who wouldn't do that trade is crazy. Cousins is a rare franchise making center. Rondo is easily replaceable, in fact, Bradley could step in and do a respectable job.
Lee for Cousins.
Rondo will not be traded this season.
LEE FOR COUSINS STRAIGHT UP???????????
OMG MY STOMACH HURTS FROM LAUGHING SO HARD!!!!
Here's my concern about Rondo, who I believe is the best pure point guard in the league and no one runs a half court offense as brilliantly as he does....at times - most of the time, but his attitude is questionable - not interms of work ethic, but, rather, in general life outlook. He is moody and I do question how truly popular he is with other players on the team. I also think he will be a nightmare to deal with in the next contract negotiation. How long is that away? 3 years? With that chip he has on his shoulder there is no way he doesn't demand a max contract and I don't believe anyone on this board is comfortable with him and a max length/money contract. I also believe his value is at an all-time high now. I also believe his career will not be all that long. He's not a big guy and he plays very hard. That's going to start to take its toll sooner than later. My 2 cents.
....and I'm sorry to say this, but the Celtics are in decline. At this point, they are not 3 years away from their next title - if KG's game drifts any further from the paint, by the 3rd year of this deal he'll be playing from the press box. Rondo will be 30 in 3 years and looking for a max length contract.
