Trade Ideas and Rumors / Re: Would you do this trade for DMC?..
« Last post by Moranis on Today at 08:49:44 AM »
Demarcus Cousins is 23 years old and is coming off of a season that was basically 23 point, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.3 blocks.  He is a good foul shooter for a center at around 73% and gets fouled a lot (8.6 a game).  I think you would be hard pressed to get that kind of production from anyone in this draft class during the year they are 23 years old.  He is locked up long term as well so there isn't the risk of him bolting in a year or two. 

You absolutely have to make that trade.

The Draft / Re: Does anyone else love Vonleh?

Simple answer why Drummond slipped; some GM's are very bad at their job and like to outthink themselves. I'd happily take Drummond at 2 in a do-over.
As would 4 - 5 of the GMs who picked ahead of the Pistons.  Unfortunately, revisionist history can't help those guys now. 

At the time Drummond was all about potential.  He was ridiculously gifted athletically, but extremely raw, and there were questions about his assertiveness on the court.  When drafted he wasn't being lauded as a "steal" at #9 at all.  Probably was one of the bigger projects in the draft.  Most of the league was pretty shocked by the impact he had in year 1.

Isn't Vonleh almost also entirely based in potential? I'm just saying, compared to Drummond he's not an exciting prospect. I wouldn't not draft him, but just doesn't get me as excited personally.

Happy Patriots Day to everyone back in MA.

One of the few days of the year I get homesick for Boston.  What a great day it is.

Not that any pick is safe.

I think his 7'4" wingspan, will make him a better defender than Sully.

I don't think he is elite by any stretch nor do I think Sully is elite.   Both have potential to be nice good players but no great ones.

Randle is the type of player who has a low ceiling, high floor, and stays in the league for a decade as a 3rd big for a contender. Kind of like Brandon Bass. I wouldn't take Brandon Bass 5th overall and neither should Boston. Vonleh has a much higher ceiling. You have to gamble on potential.

Trade Ideas and Rumors / Re: Would you do this trade for DMC?..

I really like this idea by the OP to target Cousins.

I really like him as a player and could be another great trade target.
(Rondo/Cousins as the new LOB city!)

Also, Cousins can give the team that toughness we've been missing
since the days of Perk, Sheed, Shaq and Powe.

Just to further expand, how about this idea as well?

Celts get:
Demarcus Cousins
Rudy Gay
Jason Terry
Reggie Evans
Carl Landry

Kings get:
Jeff Green
Jared Sullinger
Kelly Olynyk
Keith Bogans
Brandon Bass
Joel Anthony
Celts 2014 1st rd pick.
Brooklyn 2016 1st rd pick.

Deal would have to wait til after June 30th because the Celts would be re-acquiring a player in Terry that they dealt a year prior.

Also, I really like this lineup

PG-Rondo/Pressey
SG-Bradley/Jet
SF-Gay/Wallace
PF-Landry/Evans
C-Cousins/Faverani

Trade Ideas and Rumors / Re: Rondo to Lakers

No, no and no... you don't make trades because the team you're dealing withs franchise player, love a player. You make a trade to make your own team better whether it be part of a short term or long term view. This does neither. No thanks.

Hands down.  The thread can be closed now

Hooray another Rondo to Lakers thread.  The 100 other ones weren't enough so we needed one more.

I don't get the fascination with Rondo to the Lakers.
I don't think I ever will.

Why would you ever help the Lakers? EVER...

So what if Kobe loves Rondo?
That doesn't mean you should give him to Kobe.

Why would you ever help a rival. Celtics and Lakers are the biggest rivalry in sports.

Quit it.
