The heart and soul of this team I dont get it, are we blowing it up?!?!  :-\

With Danny, you never know.

 Regarding PP during the season, Danny would have to be blown away with an offer. Otherwise, I think it's highly unlikely.

The last sentence in the OP article quote is controlling here:

" If Ainge decides to stand pat, a deal involving Pierce -- which would mark the true end of the Big Three era -- could be re-examined around the draft or during free agency.'

IF it happens, it happens then, UNLESS Danny is blown away.

Agreed. I could see Pierce for Gay happening in the summer.

Am I the only one who thinks PP is better right now than Rudy Gay?  Rudy puts up decent numbers, but I personally think he is overpaid, a lot.

To me he certainly doesn't make us more of a contender this year, and isn't that what we are shooting for?

I take solace in the fact that I don't think Wyc would allow this.

If Pierce gets traded I won't watch the Celtics until Danny is no longer GM. I understand the "business" argument but there's also a thing called loyalty. I think that his contract will be restructured next season and Pierce will retire a Celtic.

Ray Allen 2004 on Kobe Bryant: "in about a year or two he will be calling out to Jerry Buss that we need some help in here, or trade me."

Agrees that's why I don't see it happening this season.

I'd say they're about equal currently, it'd be a lateral move currently but good for the future

Agree, short of a very good -- and therefore justifiable -- deal.

That would be pretty awful if Wyc blocked a trade that would benefit the team.

I think this year the C's make a major trade.  I think it will be either:

1. Rondo for cousins and maybe Evans
2. Pierce for Gay
3. Or role players for gortat

I think any one of these are good deals for the C's. I really like Rudy,  but I don't like the idea of giving up Pierce; however, that's a deal you have to do if it's on the table

Why not ALL of these, rather than just one????? End up with a core of: TEvans, Bradley, Gay, Cousins, and Gortat, while still keeping KG, and maybe Sully hopefully!
