I heard this on sports radio WEEI bostons sports radio talk back on the trade deadline their were talks of ray allen getting traded for caron butler and perkins getting traded for carlos boozer....

boozer
kg
pierce
butler
rondo

or

perk
kg
pierce
allen
rondo

what team would you feel is better i feel with boozer and butler you have a more physical and better defensive team but with ray allen and perk you have chemistry and with ray you have that spark on offense... just wondering your thoughts....

I hope you're kidding!

Boozer can't even hold his arms up let alone play defense

I like the team they have now. It out-does everything that the supposed team would've done. The Celtics have the most mental-toughness in this league, or close to it.

It would be hard for me to trade Perkins... the guy does almost everything he's asked to perfectly. He rebounds, defends, shoots a high percentage, and looks like he's about to eat you.

I wouldn't have traded Ray either, he and rondo have been their best players in the 2nd half of the season easily.

Both Trades would've destroyed the Celtics

Not sure I would have done it either.

they'd be way worse....the only 3 pt shooting threat would be Pierce, and he's not supposed to be a set shooter...and they'd lose their best post defender for a player that can score but hardly plays defense at all.

You gotta be kidding me, lol. They would be a WORSE defensive team with Butler and Boozer. Ray and Perk are very valuable for their unique abilities. Perk is a defensive monster and Ray is a sharpshooter. What would have been the benefits of doing that trade? Nothing that would help us...

The Butler trade was talked about heavily at the time, just before the trade deadline. The Boozer deal was never heard about until these past few weeks, even though the deal was discussed before the trade deadline. They kept that one tightly lipped.

Danny Ainge is overrated as a GM/President.

Ray Allen is better than Caron Butler in every facet of the game minus age.

Boozer can score, but he is an undersized PF. Perkins anchors that Defense. If they had Boozer and KG trying to stop D12 it would be a long series, but Perkins gives them that matchup as well as is a heck of a help defender too.

At the time it would have been a great move. Now though, Boston did right by not making the trades.
Besides, Perkins is a very underrated defender. You don't hear a lot, but it's rare you hear an opposing big have a scoring field day on him.

being a uconn fan i've always liked butler. he'd always been underrated imo up until last year when he was scoring a ton for that ****** wizards team. now he gets the ball and tries to go iverson everytime. he really hurt the mavericks in the playoffs.

at the time a lot of people in boston would have been real happy about those trades. clearly it would have been a downgrade.

Perkins in Utah would've been amazing :drool:

Ray Ray for Butler would've been a very bad trade though.

I say much better without the trade...you have a group with great on court chemistry and talent, but if you make the trade you may not have that chemistry

Definately the team they have now.

Yep. Absolutely everything minus age... well and getting to the foul line, rebounding, and creating turnovers. BUT THAT'S IT!

Agree. It is funny to me that Perkins for Boozer is considered a bad trade for BOSTON considering Boozer is the all-star big FA and Perkins is simply a rebounding defensive center.

i think butler is better then ray allen defense wise and driving wise but ray is clearly better at shooting he has a better shot... and if boozer for perk i think boozer would be a good pick up... we would of had a big line up obv i want to keep it how it is but im just thinking about what could of happened

BOSTON617
05-19-2010, 04:35 PM
perkins play a big role for boston but its a small role for many... he accepts his orle thats why he is a great fit ofr boston he does what he needs to do simple as that but boozer could be a great pick up i like the perk for boozer trade.... but perk is better defense wise.... but butler is way better then allen defense wise

if those trades were to happen, they wouldn't have gotten past the cavs. i like the team they have now.

I hope you're kidding!

Boozer can't even hold his arms up let alone play defense

He can hold his arms up. HE is also a great scorer. Doesnt matter because celtics will win championship with the team they have now. Great teamwork. Im rooting for them now that my jazz are done and hard to tell if there teamwork would be better or worse losing perkins and allen

Danny Ainge is overrated as a GM/President.Listen don't come around here and start padding your post count. You can go to the NHL forum pick a team so far south they don't get snow and go nuts with single letter posts. You come here and write something bold and have nothing to back it up, then you don't belong here. You made an argument, present your ****ing case.

First off, can we all agree that after the first 30 games of the regular season the Celtics played possum. I don't like that at all because I feel like I'm wasting my time when I watch 80 plus Celtic games a year. But if the ends justify the means; I Can live with that. Thank You Sheed

i think it wouldve been a bad trade for boston if they traded boozer for perkins they lose defense and would have a huge matchup problem if the lakers get to the finals boozer can never play against bigger guys

Boozer can't play D... for some reason alot of people are confused by that fact (I was too, not anymore). Just because the Jazz are known for physicality, doesn't mean that all their players are good defenders. Boozer is lucky everyone around him are tough.

haha Just wondering... you read Bill Simmons stuff right (Im a huge fan, but I wanted to know what Boston Fans think of him)?

You seriously think Carlos Boozer would ever play center? He's 6'7" for crying out loud.

Celtics would be a WORST team. They wouldnt have chemistry with Butler or Boozer. They would be more like the Mavericks (who looked pathetic in their first round loss).
