Jalen Rose thoughts on blowing up the Celtics.
here are the two trades, hopefully this doesnt spoil it (he gives reasons why the trades work in the video)
celtics get stephen jackson and tiago splitter
spurs get kevin Garnett
cetics get danny granger
pacers get paul pierce
The first trade seems pretty interesting to at least think about
I can't see the Spurs giving up Splitter. He offers what Garnett does, just cheaper, younger, and less or a distraction.
Doesn't Duncan hate Garnett, though?
Jalen said that in the video, but they both complement each other. Garnett is more of a jump shooter and duncan is more of a post player. they also both want one more ring. They both work really hard. I am sure duncan could get over kevin garnett if it meant winning a championship. No one would have more experience than a line up of parker manu leonard garnett duncan. I am not sure if the celtics would do it though.
I didn't like either trade ideas for the Celtics side that Jalen said. If a contender wants Paul or KG to help them win a Ring, that team has to give up young promising talent for it to happen.
Do you like this trade as a Boston fan?
Jalen Rose needs to stop playing GM. These trades are bad and that Dwight Howard trade was horrible.
Pierce does need to be moved. They need to move some of the pieced they picked up that are not working too well like Lee, Terry, Bass, etc. Green is their future 3 and needs more minutes.
KG if moved could get them a young Center and some picks. They need to get a better four man. Bradley should be enough a 2 for now but if they can upgrade maybe in the draft if they can get a lotto pick.
Green(when Pierce retires)
They need to get younger and more athletic.
They have 1st rounder Bradley,1st rounder Sully, 1st rounder Melo. They been there and done that. KG is not ring chasing people so he is not coming to your favorite team. They gave him a 3 year deal because they love him and he can mentor talent. Bradley athletic, Green athletic,Lee athletic,Terry athletic,Rondo athletic. Thats not their issue. They need a shot blocker rebounder. They may feel they have that in Melo. They already have their Center of the future so why trade for one? They are good. They may make a small deal, but I don't see what some of you are dreaming on. lol. They are a dangerous team right now and all the players will be better next year and more experienced. Celtics already prepaired for the future and already rebuilt. They have 9 new players this year. Thats a whole new team with lots of youth and the perfect mix of veterans for them to learn. C's look good going forward IMO without making any deals to help your favorite teams.
