I do not want to see a trade for Gortat for this very reason.
Keep in mind that Gortat is (in my opinion) a good defensive player who is tough and will rebound, while giving you solid offensive production.
But everyone on this board is underestimating how good Avery Bradley is on defense. He is the best defensive talent on this team. There, I said it. He might be the best defensive guard in the NBA. He is light years better than Rondo.
I cannot emphasize enough how good our team became defensively when Avery Bradley started last year after Ray got hurt. Trading AB for a center would be a disaster.
Hey now, not everyone. I along with others have your back on this. I clearly remember how lethal we were on defense and as a team in general once AB moved into the starting lineup.
Believe it or not, I too am aware how good a defender Avery Bradley is. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't love to see Marcin Gortat as a member of the Boston Celtics.
And it doesn't mean i wouldn't love to see Marcin Gortat as a member of the boston celtics lol. As long as we can keep our most important pieces, Rondo, Pierce, KG, Terry, Bradley.
Don't forget Green and Bass. Oh, and I think Wilcox has a no trade clause. I'm starting to like Sully more and more, too.
How about we offer 'em Fab Melo, Kris Joseph and a couple of draft picks? Better yet (don't really want to give up on Melo and Joseph), maybe they'll just give him to us. We'll take him and pay his salary, and then the Suns won't have to worry about paying him.
Sounds good to me.
You seem upset
Great job pointing that out captain obvious.
lol, so its obvious hes upset then, ha.
Yea and what he is trying to point out is that you dont want to give up anyone to get Gortat.
I know you just said "Captain obvious" to me because i recently said it to you but..........this was a horrible time to say it lol.
well that was the way i saw itt you want to get gortat but you dont want to give up anyone
I see what you're saying but all im saying is you saying "Captain obvious" right there didn't make sense UNLESS you were agreeing with me that he was upset and it was obvious lol.
Anyways back to to topic at hand. Since when did Avery bradley account for EVERYONE? Hes the only guy outside of the obvious pieces we aren't trading that i don't wanna give up.
Ill give up everybody else on the bench and bass so what you're saying is simply not true but i think you know that. I understand you're in a desperate attempt to try to make me look bad but come on now lol. Id trade Bass, Sullinger, Green, josef, Lee, Barbosa, Collins.
**Edit** Let me rephrase that. Pierce Kg Rondo Terry Bradley are the only players i don't wanna give up under any circumstance. *Obviously not talking about a trade for lebron or kevin durant* I don't really wanna give up anyone except probably bass and LEE.
Only because once ab comes back we won't need lee and bass is not a starting PF. If he comes off the bench fine but i hate starting him its very annoying. I'm not one of those GOTTA MAKE A TRADE NOW! guys. I don't want to do anything until i see a healthy celtics team play for atleast a month straight.
