In response to Mployee8's comment:
With Euro-Asian trash like you as a fan I can see your point!
The C's maynot have a good record of signing FA's but they do have a good record of trading for other team's Allstar players .... need I post the names again?
Ed MacCauley for 1st Rd Draft Pk (Bill Russell)
Chief & McHale
Bill Walton for Maxwell
2007 1st rd pk for Rondo
Horse trading ....
Celts got Ray Allen for the #5 pick of the 2007 Draft.
KG was traded for Big Al, the #6 pick and #28 pick of the 2009 Draft.
Rondo was traded for a 2007 1st round pick, 24th pick.
Don't include what Red Auerbach has done because Red is already dead.
Notice Ainge's moves?
Every single move Ainge made involved the Celts trading a lottery pick or a 1st round pick.
Without those lottery picks, no Ray and no KG.
Again, championships are won in the draft.
Even a woman in an elevator will tell you that.
So you don't need to tank to keep the draft pick cause you'll be trading it for an NBA ready player anyway. But you keep singing to the hills like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music that we need Parker or Wiggins ??? Now you're saying the lottery pick will be trade fodder?
C'mon, what's it gonna be boy ... yes or no? The C's can flip other picks into a higher pick if they end up in the 8th position anyway if they want to trade up to flip that pick for some other teams player. We don't need to tank to accomplish that task. It will just cost us an extra asset (pick) to get there. Bottom line, we've historically gotten the player we want/need not by keeping picks but by trading them ... GET ONBOARD!!!
