He was expiring anyways, so I get what you mean, but I guess he was causing too much trouble.

It's just like Tyrus Thomas in Chicago. He's an expiring, but the Bulls Organization just doesn't want him around anymore.

This is a bad deal for the Celtics IMO. House was consistent off the bench and clutch. Robinson, as athletically gifted as he is, doesn't really provide that consistency.

House hasn't been consistent at all this year.

His best minutes have come in garbage time.

This can be good or bad for both teams, Robinson is known for his ability to light up a scoreboard, but also known to be extremely inconsistent.

His play will determine how big this trade really is.

Stupid for trading someone who was leaving after this year? At worst, it was pointless. At best, they use 3 second rounders to get some decent pieces and find a Dejuan Blair.

House was really struggling this year. He can't play Defense anymore on the perimeter and he can not handle the ball. He's a good role player but Nate Robinson can do far more for Boston. Boston doesn't have players to create for Eddie anymore PP, Allen and Garnett are not the same and can't create open shots for House anymore, he has to create his own now and can't do it. Nate on the other hand can play with the ball in his hands and take over games at times. Boston will just need him for good defense on the perimeter and bench scoring.

that and i think nate is a much much much better player overall. There both expiring so i did not see the point in the deal that much and i think there gonna get worse even more so then now. And they don't have a pick this year to try and suck anyway, so what point was there to do this deal?

No, they couldn't. Robinson could have vetoed any trade and was only willing to go to 3. None would even think about trading a 1st for him.

Yeah, losing that guy who was inconsistent enough to get benched for a month and only played a little over 20 minutes a game will probably take them from 11th to 13th. What a shame.

Like i said I mean Boston could have gave a 1st for him and House duh, huge rip off, Boston doesnt even use they're 1st pick, like i said could have used it in the T-Mac deal. could have gotten more for Nate from Boston.

Good move for the Celtics, Nate can be for them as Crawford is in ATL, high scoring 6th man who can get his own shot and lead the team in pts off the pine. NY loves to chuck it up and plays no D so Eddie can be the prototype DAntoni guard, perfect for the Knicks. Galinari is the only player to have over 300 3pt attempts, House will try to catch up.

All the Stars cal allign in NY (or NJ moving to BK soon) and join forces ala Bron, Bosh Wade (and/or Melo) in the NYC??? Knicks can afford it, I'm sure the Russin Billianaire that bought the Nets can afford it and why wouldn't those young superstars join forces? If they can it could be only economically viable in NY or LA or maybe MIA. DAL could be I don't see that happening as they haven't cleared the cap and it is not the MECCA. It would only be affordable for this contract as the increase of the next contracts would make it too expensive to keep them all.
I would love to see it but Stern may pull a vito card...

i know this hasnt been discussed but i would like to gain the perspective of some celtics fans. it seems like you guys have issues at the power forward spot behind KG, and that the defense is suffering because of his knees. if Jeffries contract hypothetically wasn't an issue, don't you think he would be a nice presence off the bench? the guy can guard every position, and with shooters like allen, pierce and a scorer like rondo i feel like jeffries would add some nice depth for the playoffs. if you dont agree thats fine, but just explain why, dont just say celtics dont want the knicks garbage and just trash the guy, give a legit reason.

as the biggest Celtic realist. im very worried about KG's injury. No healthy KG = no Title 18

Jefferies is someone i have never been a fan of, but im not against getting any depth but his contract is bad and we have nothing to give even if we wanted him.

ive said for a while the knicks have tons of talent. Il take Harrington anytime. we could use him right about now!

Nate already declined/vetoed a deal to Memphis and now he has his wish granted to play for a possible contender. he needs to realize that the show is over now, that there should be higher goals than winning a slam dunk competition. it would be great if he can bring that swagger to Beantown and ignite some fire off the bench..

Nate Robinson to the Celtics, an outsiders thoughts.

I have no real interest in Nate, the Knicks or the Celtics but from a basketball fan's perspective I don't see why the Celtics do this, other than as an act of desperation for a little bit of fire on the team. Nate has always been all about Nate. He's a cancer in every locker room and although people will say that the veteran presence on the Celtics will tone that down--what if it doesn't?

Clearly Nate wants Nate to play, and play a lot. How's he going to feel sitting for long stretches? Probably the same way he felt in NY. With the Celtics on a bit of a "losing streak" (in the relative, elite team kind of way) tempers must already be a bit on edge and the last thing you need is a jack-*** coming into the team. Hello Marbury encore. Maybe Nate will eat vaseline in the off-season too.

In a breaking report, multiple sources confirm that the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics have come to a deal that will send Nate Robinson to the Celtics.

The buzz is that Eddie House is headed to the Knicks, but details of the deal may not be released until tomorrow. Check back for updates.

I heard it was a 2nd round pick and Eddie House. I would have preferred Tony Allen, but I like this trade very much. No way I would want to give up a 1st round pick for a rental. I want us to resign him for a good price next year with out extra cap space. All we need now is to trade Allen and were good

Nate Robinson is in a much better part of his career then Starbury is the first flaw in your statement.

Second, Nate is about Nate which is fine but you act like he's been in multiple locker rooms. If it's the same Nate Robinson your talking about he's been a Knick his entire career. and he really has only had problems with D'Antonio.

Nate didn't play for something like 17-18 games in NY. He will play solid minutes in Boston, probably 15-25 depending on the night. I think this guy can be like Vinny Microwave Johnson was for Detroit, he can obviously score and Boston needs offense.

If Nate just wanted minutes he would accept trades to other teams but he wants to play for a winner.

For Boston desperation or not it's a decent move, can't get worse right now and guy could add a spark.

Very true, Starbury was coming off of a 14 month hiatus and wasnt in basketball shape before signing with Boston. He wasnt in shape when he showed up to join the team with the Knicks before MD sent him away.

Robinson is in his prime with the potential to get better with the right coaching to help him ease into the role of a PG rather than an undersized scoring guard.


Second, Nate is about Nate which is fine but you act like he's been in multiple locker rooms. If it's the same Nate Robinson your talking about he's been a Knick his entire career. and he really has only had problems with D'Antonio.

No. Nate is nothing like Vinny Johnson, Nate is one of the streakiest(did I make the word up?) players in the NBA. If he doesn't get hot when he comes in the game, hes going to basically disappear in the half court offense because no way they will allow him to hog the ball and heat check.


If Nate just wanted minutes he would accept trades to other teams but he wants to play for a winner.
Nate likes to win. I think he realized his value is higher being productive on a good team than scoring 15 PPG on a Lottery team.

I don't understand the Nate to Marbury comparisons at all, and I don't see how he's a locker room "cancer." He may seem a little selfish and all about himself, but he seems more like a team guy than a cancer to me. He was always the first guy off the bench to congratulate his teammates during his 14 consecutive CD-DNPs. He may not be the perfect teammate, but I don't think he is a cancer like Marbury.

Why would the Lakers & Celtics take part in a deal together? That has not and will never happen. They're competing with each other not trying to help each other get better.

Boston doesn't need Rudy Gay considering hes a natural SF when they have Pierce, not to mention the fact that they would be hard pressed to sign him this offseason since Rudy wants more than $12 Million(Grizzlies most recent offer).

Not thrilled about this now. I really wanted a pick instead, even if it was a second.

is giddens ANY GOOD?

he's very raw but one of the league's better pure athletes... at the very least if he gets a chance to fast break you'll get to see him get ridiculous airtime on his dunks.

He was basically a throw-in to match the salaries. D'Antoni wanted House.

Personally, I prefer House to Nate... kid is clutch and a lights out 3 pt shooter. When he gets on his streaks he goes nuts and its the best thing ever.

Giddens played well at times this summer but IMO nothing more then a 8th-9th player in this league.

Eddie House can't get his own shot and Boston's problem as a team right now is they can't create for themselves or others anymore. Not good 1 on 1 players anymore. Nate can do that for himself and others. I really think Nate will be a bigtime asset for Boston.

Tough to see Eddie leave, but Nate should be a good asset.

Nate was one of my favorite players, but it's time for him to go. He just doesnt fit this team. I still hope the best for him, he is a real positive dude and you can tell no matter what he makes or who he plays for he plays full speed.

ok so the latest:

Boston gets: Nate

New York gets: House, Giddens, 2nd round pick

now wouldnt this mean Boston has to get something else minor from the knicks too?

nate in boston doesnt really make a difference, theyre still the same team imo

So its official huh. I think Giddens will fit well into New York's offense and Nate is the firepower the Celts need.

Eeewww, this is what the Celts have to rival the Cavs acquiring Jamison?

Eddie House is a great chemistry guy and wanna of the better role players in the league. When he gets hot the guy is unconscious. A scorer off the bench is a good asset for the Celts but they don't need scoring.

Nate isn't a great defender and he could disrupt chemistry if he demands more shots. We'll see though...

well atlest Nate is only here for 1 year and your stuck with Jamison for another two years plus he is 33 years old and nates only in his late 20's! and like i said dont be cocky because youll never know if orlando or boston could pull somthing big tomorrow!

TWO YEARS!!! OHHHH ****!!

So that means he'll be 34 next year! We are doomed...

unfortunately don't think there is any big moves out there. Ray Allen is their big trade chip and they need a young athletic wing in return and nobody is giving it up. For Allen I wouldn't have minded going for Salmons, Tyrus Thomas and Hinrich type deal with adding a guy like Tony Allen and the salaries might have matched and Chicago might have done it but there wasn't much else out there, they tried Sacramento and Kevin Martin. Tried with GSW with a deal centered around Monta Ellis denied, and they tried with Philly for Iggy. No teams seemed ready to bite on it.

Nate Robinson is not worth a first rounder at all

What...?

I doubt this was an answer. We've been discussing a trade for Nate for awhile now. If Danny was to answer the Cavs trade, he would have definitely traded Ray Allen.

Well..I certainly don't think was the deal that makes the Celtics even close to the favorites. Probably an upgrade, but nothing earth shattering. Sad to see Eddie go, he's been one of my favorite Celtics to watch the last couple of seasons.
