    2nd- As of right now the Celtics make the playoffs, the Lakers don't. C's have been playing a lot better of late.

    3rd- So we get the big man we need to get past the heat, but then we have lost Pierce's production, nobody on this team can fill his roll.

    4th- They drafted Sully knowing he was a risk, so it's a risk worth taking and so far it is paying off.

    5th- Green is NO WHERE as valuable as Pierce. If that was the case then that means the C's could get then same in return for Green that they would PP and that's not even close to true.
    well said all around....I get the casual fan probably doesn't watch every game of other teams, so trust when we say Green is not capable of filling in the role of Pierce. There is no one who fills that role on that team. I understand why people think on paper this makes the C's better....but Gasol, KG, Green is not better than KG, Bass/Sullinger(currently outplaying Bass and getting the minutes), Pierce.

    Don't hold your breath on a Pierce for Gasol trade, will NEVER happen.

    I don't see how BOS could trade Pierce and get better. If such a trade exists, by all means I hope Danny goes for it. The issue is that Pierce is the only player on the roster that feels comfortable taking 5 shots in a row. If you did a hypothetical Pierce for Gasol trade, then I'd feel pretty good about what BOS has down low, but that would just open up another hole with wing scoring, leaving BOS in pretty much the same place - not good enough to compete for a title.

    This sort of connects to the Pierce thing. Article mentions it.

    http://www.knicksfix.com/buzz.html

    "The Boston Celtics have been in several trade rumors this year. If it's trying to go after Demarcus Cousins, or even putting Paul Pierce up for trade, they've been active to make their team more athletic. Of course, as of now they have yet to pull a trade off but, sources say that the Celtics are going to continue to push until the deadline.

    The Celtics are not interested in making small trades for role players. With the Kings saying Cousins is not going to be traded, the Celtics will perhaps look towards Rudy Gay. The Grizzlies would get what they want in a short contract, and a proven winner in Pierce. The Grizzlies are in "win now mode", so it doesn't seem logical for them to look for young assets and picks. However, the Celtics do also have a few young pieces to better the package.

    Rajon Rondo is rumored to be pushing the front-office for a trade. Although this is not confirmed, Rondo has indeed expressed Gay's value, as Marc Spears of Yahoo reports. “It’s hard to talk to (Rondo) because he is always saying, ‘We need you over here. We need you over here. So it’s not easy talking to him. But he’s being a friend, just telling me about keeping everything together and he makes you feel like you are still valuable."

    the Celtics aren't trading Pierce period!! he's playing better now than he has in years. The Cs front office doesnt take bad starts as a panic button. It's not happening no way Doc would sign off on that.

    And this is why players shouldn't give a **** about being loyal to their franchise... Pierce has been playing with that team all his career and been more than loyal and now their talking about trading him...
