Boston is aggressively working to move up into the late lottery, if not higher, league sources tell Y!. Celtics own No. 21 and 22 picks.

Danny Ainge should just be the scumbag he was trying to be last year and trade Paul Pierce for a top 10

Not sure if a 21 and 22 gets them into the lottery. Maybe 10-14 range of the lottery, but I doubt top 10?

I would do it if I was the Rockets for the 12!

Lowry and Marcus Morris for Raptors 8

12th pick for Celtics 21 and 22 picks, Moore, and that rookie Center from Wisconsin

Rockets have 8,16,18,20,21 picks in the first round!

I really hope not. The only thing Boston has that would be worth it is Rondo.

Rondo is worth way more than just Harrison Barnes, Drummond and others that will be available at the 5 spot

It would have to be 5th pick, Tyreke, and Thompson for Rondo and 21 pick

You clearly underrate Rondo

Just send the Raptors Rondo, we'll gladly give you our 8th pick.

I don't mean Rondo for the 5th straight up - just that the 5th is more valuable imo than any of Boston's other assets, so Rondo would have to be involved in the trade if they want the 5th. I wouldn't do your trade anyway though. The Kings can't afford to lose Thompson and Tyreke and not have a high pick to replace them.

3team trade?

celtics get: tyreke evans + filler

kings get: paul pierce,kyle lowry

rockets get: #5.#21,#22

rockets then end up owning #5,12,16,18,21,22 you could do a lot with that

So the Celtics get to give up Paul Pierce and 2 1st round picks for Tyreke Evans and a filler? Sounds kinda wack.

If that was honestly what would hold it up I would send back the earliest 2nd rounder we have and ask for the 22 instead of the 21.

If Pau is could possibly fetch the 3rd pick, Rondo could get at least a top 5 pick.

No trading Rondo haha. He's the key to rebuilding. We give him weapons and we are back in the thick if things. He's too valuable to this team to trade unless we get proven talent back.

I'd trade Rondo for a top 5 pick in an instant. A Rondo led team is going nowhere.

And what happens when he loses his good/great catch and jump shooters? What happens when defenders actually play up on him more because the big three is gone? What happens when his teammates see him throw his occasional hissy fit? Rondo is the 6th or 7th PG right now in the game, but he isn't a player you build around with.

You do not appreciate what you have....Rondo is a beast and my Fav player lol

IMO Rondo is very under appreciated from Boston fans. He does things that no other pg can do. He is an absolute baller and competitor. I want someone like him running my team. As far as hissy fits go, he still has to mature. He is a very special player who obviously benefits from the big three but not nearly as much as people think. He plays the game right and is extremely smart. He is a true pg. Why eould you trade that away?

remember when the big 3 were out a game earlier this year and rondo put up a triple double.....I do

Well, I guess you wanna see another 06-07 disaster then.

remember when the big 3 were out a game earlier this year and rondo put up a triple double.....I do

Remember when Rondo was out for that one playoff game and the Celtics still won....I do. Remember in game 5 of the ECF when Rondo shot 20 percent and 11 of his 13 assists went to KG...I do. Rondo shot less than 30 percent from shots 3-15 feet out. And that was with teams playing off him.

Nonsense. Which weapons? Are they going to finde 3 HOF'ers? Rondo can't shoot, doesn't sustain effort over time, is a knucklehead, cannot be counted on for scoring on a team in transition.

Rondo shouldn't have to be counted on to score. He is a pass oriented pg. His shooting will get better as his career goes along. How can you say he can't shoot after the performance against the heat?? He has the skills to be unbelievable. He just has to harness them, ehich I think he can do.

tonyd3b54
06-28-2012, 03:35 PM
Rondo has his pack of haters and his pack of sex slaves on this site. The fact of the matter is rondo is a great pg. he makes people around Him better and the big3s shooting percentages are still very good with age because of the open looks rondo gets them. Can rondo be a #1 option, probably not but that doesn't make him terrible as the hater side would make him seem. He's really good and he's got a reasonable contract so I really don't get the hate other than people liking to oppose an argument

they won because Pierce went ape **** on the Hawks. And 9 of his assists were to KG he gave him easy open shots like he has been doing for years now.. and he averaged 20 ppg, 11.3 apg,2 spg, and 7 rpg against the Heat and got a triple double in game 7 where nobody else came to play

Rondo shouldn't have to be counted on to score. He is a pass oriented pg.

Wha? And when he goes from being the #4-5 scoring option to #1-2 on a poor team, then what? "Oh sorry, I'm not scorer...". Please.


His shooting will get better as his career goes along.

Because you say so? In many statistical areas Rondo had his worst or second worst season last year, and the same is even more true of his last two years vs the prior two years. So tell me how does a guy get worse and you just assume he'll be better - with less offensive options to help him out? Could we please leave fantasy land?


How can you say he can't shoot after the performance against the heat?? He has the skills to be unbelievable. He just has to harness them, ehich I think he can do.

??? Rondo's career is much longer then 1 series. He has fine skills - but why can't he bring it every game? Why did he lay down like a punk for 14 out of the next 16 games after Perk was dealt? What a beach.

He's starting his 7th year. He's not a kid. He's in his middle age in the league on a team that's going downhill talent wise. How is a known emotional herk off like Rondo who can't shoot outside the paint be counted on to successfully lead the Celts back to a Championship level?

I cant agree with this..

Great GM's have players do what there best at. you dont make defensive/pass first pg's shooters..

Did the pistons make ben wallace a shooter? no, was he still extremely key? heck yes..

Tyson chandler last yr, can he be relied upon on offense? no, was he still extremely usefull

Glorified role players are needed. You DONT make an elite facilitator do what hes weakest at..
