I don't get why the Clippers would do this trade. Seems like you are undermining their depth to add a future Hall of Famer. I also want to see what Fab Melo can bring to the Celtics table when he is ready. 
The NBA is a very stupid, corrupt, and unethical league

Only if Pierce asks for a trade, and KG doesn't decide "screw this, I'm retiring on the spot".

Even then, I only do it for a homerun.

After the Indy series ?  You bet.  Since then different story.  I'd trade Paul at this point if he requested it, he was ok with it ie contender OR It was such a crazy deal we would be stupid not to

I'd trade Pierce. While he is my favorite player, he isn't above the franchise.

Not a fan of Gay at all and man is he overpaid!!!  I am more than ready to trade PP for the right trade, but NOT for Gay!!  I would like PP to go to a contender.  Otherwise, I would NOT trade him.

Amen.

I cannot believe people are talking about Pierce as if he is holding this team back, I mean, seriously? 19 pts. on 42% shooting is not lights out, but it is not nothing either. He made a couple of bad plays at the end of the Knicks game, happens to everyone.


It makes me sick to hear "Celtics fans" say some of the things I have read on the site recently.

This statement is not directed at anyone in this thread, or even on this site, but the one nice thing about not being a great team, is that it really shows who the real fans are.

If we Celtics lovers truly believe the maxim:

"it's the name on the front of the jersey, not the...."

If you can finish the above statement AND truly believe it, the answer is clear.
