    Who is Danny Ainges biggest steal ever?

    Rondo?
    Kevin Garnett?
    Perkins?
    Big Baby?
    Johnson?
    Moore?

    I think it's K.G., just because of his enormous impact versus the collective impact of the players traded.

    In terms of the draft, it's Rondo at 13. It may end up being JaJuan though.
    We'll look back in 3 years...

    Of course Moore at 55 looks like he will be in the running too just because of where he was drafted. If he makes an all-star game in his career he may be the winner.

    If JaJuan develops into a hall-of-famer type at pick 27 he will win.

    Such great speculation!

    Really? Day-Um!!!!

    The best PG in the league at pick 21? SWEEET!

    That's right! Get your assists UP DRose! You just a great guard that plays the  point right now. Your not a great set-up guy.

    Rondo is the best set-up guy in the NBA, bar none.
    + top notch PG defender
    + a ton of guts and heart and smarts and fakes
    + a ton of quickness and speed
    + rebounds galore and crisp passes with both hands
    + he gets pick-pocketed NEVER!
    Where's the argument?

    OK, it's a  bit early to dub Johnson a HOF'er before he plays his first NBA minute.

    Johnson was one of my favorites to watch in college ball be cause he was so quick and controlled for a 6'10" guy.  Yes, a skinny 6'10 guy.  He wasn't just an athlete, but he used his quickness to react well to passes and to stay on the offensive guys shooting hand.  That defensive quickness gives the C's a lot to work with.   And Johnson's possibilities running behind the break with Rondo and Green is an Ainge dream. The quickness issue is why I was totally bored with the Morris twins but was excited to see Johnson on the tube.  Get Russel in there to help Garnett coach Johnson as soon as the lockout ends.

    Have to agree with the KG trade.  He is the reason that we won the championship.  We wouldn't have won if he wasn't a Celtic.

    Now if we can flip him for a franchise PG or Big, then Rondo will be hands down the biggest steal ever.

    Getting Rondo at 21 was a huge steal, regards if you think he is a top 5 pg or not. Anytime you get an All-Star, who can give you a triple double every now and then after the lotto, you got yourself talent.

    Pierce and Rondo are a tie for me, Pierce is one of the greatest Celtics ever (yes I said it) and Rondo was a friken steal at 21. I really hope Johnson's talent can transfer over to the NBA, so in 5 years I can say Johnson was the best steal ever.

    Love the Celtics. Hate Rondo.

    So what's your point?

    To flip Rondo into a  franchise PG or 5 would make his selection at 21 even more of a steal.

    Do you disagree with that?

    Where is your credibility?

    Sorry.... I didn't mean to rain on your parade, daceltics.

    Folks are getting mighty, MIGHTY  nervous about trade prospects regarding Rondo.

    Over at R9R's offical website, the lead story is.... "Rumors Swirl about a Possible Rondo Trade."

    Trades are part of the business. You'll get over it.

    Actually Rondo is the biggest steal of the lot already.  If Danny can flip him around for a big or an even better point guard (aka CP3) I will proclaim Danny to be a Magician.

    Pitino could have done worse, he could have used the 10th pick on Bonzi Wells, the 11th pick, or he could have picked Matt Harpring, the 15th pick. The only good Rick Pitino did for the Celtics was drafting Paul Pierce. At least give him that.

    And why are you calling me fatboy? Check my profile again, maybe you have me mistaken for another guy you met online. It's disgusting that you're checking out the profile pics of the people on this forum.

    Excuse me but Rondo was the No. 21 pick from Phoenix.

    And possibly Triple J (JaJuan) will be big as well.

    The real question should be can anyone name one player move by DA since the 08 Championship season that ended up on the good side of the equation for the Celtics?
