Eh, What’s Up Doc?

We had the trade, then we didn’t, we had hope, then David Stern, we had a future… aaaaaaaand its gone.

and_it_s_gone_by_celeith-d5div3yThe Doc to LA trade is officially dead, and so is the Celtics’ franchise.

I am so pessimistic about this non-deal that it isn’t an opinion to me. To me, it’s a fact that the Celtics’ will never get banner 18. They sure as hell won’t with these players, without Doc as a coach, while I’m still adamant about being a fan. The franchise is dead, face it.

The deal that would’ve brought a young center and a few draft picks fell through and now we have…. Fab Friggin’ Melo. The draft is garbage players this year and unless we trade to get a possible lottery pick next year I don’t see talent coming to Boston wearing green soon.

The Celtics are going to be stuck in the 30-40 win cycle because they don’t quite suck and will always be 7-8-9 in the standings and won’t get lottery talent. Unless of course Stern wants to win a great, original, fanbase back by ahem rigging the draft. Such was the case for New York for Patrick Ewing.

Then again Boston could host the All-Star game in the future and have the people and fans win over the players. That is if we don’t heckle the shit out of Lebron or Kobe. We are the most passionate fans in all of the Nation. Fact.

The Celtics have lost their window and should’ve taken a simple trade to get rid of KG and get Jordan, forget about Doc, just get that contract out of here.

One other option is bring back Doc, trade Rondo and sign CP3. He wants to be with Doc, so hey, make a go for it.

Doc, Seriously?

Doc Rivers wants out, Garnett will waive the no-trade clause, the Clippers want Doc and are willing to trade a young center to the Celtics.

What’s wrong with that?

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Things are shaping up and heating up as well. The Celtics’ Coach Doc Rivers has said through sources that he wants change. I say give him a change! Send him to the Clips! Doc, Garnett and Pierce for Jordan, Bledsoe or Green and a few draft picks. No brainer! Make that deal! Hell, throw Jason Terry in there too! Danny Ainge needs to get this done.

I like Doc and the gang but I think this is a bit too much. I mean with all this drama the other players in the Celtics organization are hearing about it and might not have the same respect toward Doc. It’s almost like the Brett Favre fiasco a few years ago. Doc isn’t saying anything and is letting all this snowball. If he instead of his “sources” would come forward and say “I want out” or “I’m here to stay” this story would be non-important. Instead it’s getting heated and Doc is sitting there waiting for some sort of conclusion without any say in the matter.

The Celtics need to cut ties and move past the big three era. I hate to say it but its the truth. Pierce can stay if possible, but Doc, ya gotta go.

Just the thinking that the Celtics are thinking about this makes my mouth water. Four draft picks in two years, Rondo, Bradley, Green, Sullinger and Jordan as the starting five, Lee, Melo and Bledsoe off the bench. What more could we want?

***Clippers are “backing out” of the Rivers interest pool, Celtics are asking too much. I say we don’t even need to add Bledsoe in the deal, just Jordan and 2 picks.

Remember the last Bledsoe in New England?

Get Outta Here!

Reports on ESPN are saying that Doc Rivers has spoken. What he is saying is that it is time for a change.

I say, about time!

I like Doc Rivers, he’s one of the great basketball coaches there ever was. However, he is finally setting up a series of changes that will be coming to the Boston Celtics. For over a month now we have been on and off the fence about whether he was coming back or not. We all thought we needed to see if Paul Pierce was coming back or Kevin Garnett going to retire to be the first step in the offseason moves.

I say it’s time to trade the coach and a player for a package deal. Whether that player is KG, Bradley, or Rondo, they need to make a package to get size and youth. It is finally time to move past the coach and the old three. After the coach is gone they can move the old pieces. I’m thinking send Pierce to a winner. What better way to send him out that to San Antonio?

He would fit perfectly there joining Tim Duncan and co he would be a wonderful addtition to their already built roster. If not to the Spurs, why not the Thunder? They could use someone with his past to go with Durant’s bright future. He is the bane of the Heat and the Thunder or Spurs can beat them.

It’s time to move past the old three and move forward. It’s up to Danny Ainge to pick the pieces to build around. It’s not Doc, KG and Pierce; we can move past that, it could be with Rondo and Bradley or Green and Sullinger; it could be with a number of guys, but first things first is getting rid of Doc and getting pieces for him.
