No, his recent play has been good, but he's always been good against bum/terrible teams.

It's true. The Magic, the Kings, the Heat. Bum teams right there.

He beats up on weaker teams and struggles to find consistency against .500 or higher teams.
I'm a Jeff Green fan but you can't rely on his recent play as a pretext for moving Paul Pierce. lol.

"Game 4: 4 minutes 28 seconds 87-81
Game 5:2 minutes 28 seconds 84-81
These are scores in the 4th period and time left in Games 4 and 5 in 2011 versus the Heat. The Celtics were ahead in both games and Rondo was hurt, playing with one arm."  -Pearl 131  So close, yet so far.

jeff is a mediocre player. paul is a lot better than jeff, even at this point in his career. danny wont trade paul for a bunch of mediocre players. unless something amazing comes up, paul pierce is retiring a celtic - and i say that not in an emotionally stubborn way, but realistically, what are you going to trade paul for? gallinari and filler? lol.

paul is an asset, even if he stays on the team, and the money comes off the books. there's no use in using the money up on bad players.  if danny can get a player with a per of 18 or more, he'll move him - if not he won't... which in all reason says he won't. 

now if kg wants to go to the clippers for deandre jordan and bledsoe, then thats a deal... but i think kg and paul retire as celtics - at this stage in their careers you really cant get back equal value for them (or it's very unlikely you can), and danny knows this.

and danny wont accept being lowballed by any GM.

His leadership and what it is to be a Celtic instilled on younger players alone is worth it. Leave the Captain alone. >:(
