Song of the post: How Forever Feels by Kenny Chesney
The Celtics have ANOTHER chance to get multiple first round picks, and become the best team in the league again. The Nets and Celtics are in talks to send Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and possibly Jason Terry to Brooklyn for Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace and 3 first round picks over the next 5 years.
There should be zero, ZERO hesitation on this deal! And do it quick while the commissioner is busy with the NBA Draft so he can’t really look at it and deny it. The Celtics are getting gifted with first round picks and need to pull the trigger on them. Wyc and Danny need to say “OK, we’re going to be just okay for 6 years but with first round talent we can handle mediocre.”
We have to move past KG and the Truth and just face it, their run is over. They had a great run while they were here, and should have the Celtics as the main jerseys in the Hall of Fame and will forever be honored in Boston. However we can’t keep telling them to stick in it one more year because they are Celtic greats. Bobby Orr had to be let go, Nomar, Vinateri, and many more had to leave before they became the enemy.
However they will be the enemy in the Brooklyn Nets. That’s besides the point because the Nets will be garbage once the “new” Celtics are contenders again.
In making this trade and the draft pick trade tonight, they have just said that the Celtics are now Rondo’s team.
I’m fine with it, and I hope we suck next year we need the lottery.
