Kevin is obviously distracted and off his game-if there is any truth to this rumor:
The Detroit News: "The folks in Boston believe the trade made last week for WallySzczerbiak cements the notion Paul Pierce will remain a Celtic for life. Wouldn't bet on that. What it looks like, and to many others, is Danny Ainge is clearing the decks to facilitate a blockbuster over the summer. The Celtics dumped four years and $28 million with Mark Blount and two years and $13 million with Ricky Davis . Michael Olowokandi 's $6 million comes off the books in July. It looks as if the Celtics are positioning themselves to now trade Pierce for a foundation piece -- like say Kevin Garnett ."
Trade Paul Pierce?? Simmer down, Danny.
The Celtics and Danny Ainge are still making moves for the sake of moves just like little Ricky before...Too bad Larry Bird still isn't walking through that door...More talent hasn't been walking into the Garden, either.
The trade rumors are running rampant:
Pierce to the Bulls for Ben Gordon, Chris Duhon, Tim Thomas's expiring deal, and others...Pierce to the Timberwolves in a deal for Garnett(okay, we like that one)...Unless the C's actually receive greater upside, Pierce should stay in Boston. Our hopes have to hinge on the development of Jefferson, Delonte, and Perk; Far from a sure thing, but the best chance at getting to that elite level.
Think Danny would like to take back that Antoine for Raef disaster now?? Raef is President Logan: 4 more years, and you just have to hope things don't get any worse.
