So we just had a crushing loss against a hated foe.  What to do now?  Well, hit the Trade Machine and blow it up, of course!

Pierce for Eric Bledsoe and veteran filler:

Rondo and Bass for Cousins and filler:

Terry for young bench filler:
http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=cwcxr8o

Throw in picks on either side as needed.  Voila!  Team blown sky high.  Oh, the catharsis!

Roster after blow-up:

Bledsoe / Fredette
Bradley / Lee / Fournier
Butler / Green / Garcia
Garnett / Sullinger / Odom
Cousins / Hayes / Mozgov / Melo


Is a team built around Cousins, Bledsoe, Bradley, and Sullinger going to win a title someday?  Probably not.  But hey, it would be interesting to see this group of strangers try to figure out how to play together!  And we'd have a bunch of new young guys to HOPE about.  That would be a very athletic back-court, too. 

Garnett is kept around because he has a no-trade clause and 'cause he needs to teach Cousins how to maintain a level of rage and insanity just manageable enough to have a successful career.


Can you do better?

Actually, this wasn't a crushing loss ... these losses I can live with, because we fought back in the second half and played well, almost stealing a win without Bradley.

I don't feel too bad after these losses, because we maintained the renewed energy that we've had since Avery's return.

Just my twisted view, I guess ... plus I don't care for "blow-it-up" threads, especially when we're finally becoming a cohesive unit.

Nothing personal, (TP for the post), just my humble opinion.

It's half-full time again, folks. :)

Well, I hope you caught the facetious tone of my post.  I don't actually think the team ought to be blown up.  I'm not actually that down about the team we have.

But I do find I have the urge to go into "fix it" mode with the roster after every disappointing loss.  Pretty much regardless of any other circumstances. 

This thread is supposed to be kind of an ode to that totally irrational desire to "throw it all out and start over again" every time the team suffers a loss that leaves me feeling disgusted and wanting to wash my hands of the whole mess -- even if the team played pretty well all things considered.

I imagine I'm not alone in feeling that way, right?

BOS Trades:

Paul Pierce
Brandon Bass
Fab Melo
1st round pick (maybe 2)


ATL Trades:

Josh Smith
Al Horford


God, we would be the best defensive and one of the best rebounding and low-post teams the NBA has seen in a while.

New Lineup:

C: Horford/Collins/Wilcox
PF: KG/Sullinger/Smith/Wilcox
SF: Smith/Green
SG: Bradley/Terry/Lee/Barbosa
PG: Rondo/Terry/Barbosa

This checks out on the trade machine, but we would need to take ATL's front office out for a night-long Absinthe tasting for them to agree. I mean, they are likely losing Smith. Their team as is, doesn't seem like it will stick....maybe they want to blow it up too???

Pierce likely opts out, which then saves ATL enough money to make 2 max-contract offers.....they get the ability to start from scratch, and also gain a rising asset in Melo, plus a 1st rounder or 2.

Celtics obviously become one of the worst jump-shooting teams, but it is more than made up for with size, rebounding, team defense, post scoring.

Our future rotation is solidified with Rondo/Bradley/Lee/Smith/Green/Sullinger/Horford

If we're going to trade Pierce, then I think this would benefit the C's the most.

Boston sends:  Paul Pierece & Fab Melo
Boston gets:   Demarcus Cousins, John Salmons, Aaron Brooks

Memphis sends: Rudy Gay
Memphis gets:  Paul Pierce

Sacramento sends:  Demarcus Cousins, John Salmons, Aaron Brooks
Sacramento gets:   Rudy Gay & Fab Melo


Why for Boston?

DMC is the big that they need now and for the future.  A future core of Rondo, Bradley, DMC, Sully & Green is a pretty good core.  In the meantime, you have a starting core of Rondo, Brardley, Green, KG & DMC.  Salmons can back up Green at the 3, Brooks gives the C's a capable backup at the point.  This type of trade would probably allow Ainge to move Terry and or Bass for some other pieces if needed.


Why for Memphis? 

They apparently want to get under the luxury tax limit and while Pierce doesn't help with that this year, he's only guaranteed $4 million for next year.  However, he probably helps them more this year in the playoffs than does Gay.  In fact, there was a lot of talk down in Memphis that the team played better in last years playoffs without Gay then with him.


Why for Sacramento?

This only works for them if they are truly done with the headache that is DMC.  If that is the case, then with this trade they add an athletic and high scoring SF that they lack, as well as a young center with some potential.  They can keep Jason Thompson at the 5 and this would free up some more time for their top 5 pick Robinson.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

I don't care if it doesn't work - make it happen! No matter what!


Maybe we can even throw in a pick or 4 to Chicago to sweeten the deal, eh?
I like Marcus Smart

I got as far as:

Paul Pierce for Josh Smith, John Jenkins, Ivan Johnson

then I tried to trade Rondo. Didn't make a lick of sense. Couldnt do it.

How about Doc Rivers for Tom Thibodeau?

I mean look at both our rosters, the Celtics have more talent than the bulls on paper. Thibs gets the most out of his players and doc asks about his players feelings first.

Not sure why the Hawks would trade for Pierce.

Because he is one of the few scoring 3's without character issues and with championship pedigree that might be available, a desperate need for the Hawks of they do or do not get Howard next season. And, if he doesn't work out, only $4 million guaranteed next season.

I've also spent some time playing with the trade machine, looking for some ridiculous return. Here my best shot:

I mean, you asked for ridiculous ideas, and these are the best players reportedly avaiable, so I think it would be hard to do it better than that,right?
Rondo/AB/Gay/JSmooth/Cousins
Barbosa/Lee/Sullinger/KG
+Delonte&Oden and I suddenly like our chances... lol
