Armchair GM trade suggestions have just about worn out their welcome for me.  And when they come from pro writers, well, that just makes me laugh.
I love Armchair gm pieces.

A lot of people do.  Trade Machine exists for a reason.

I realize I'm in the minority here.  Maybe I'm just a stubborn fan who wants KG and Piece here, even if they go down with the ship.  Maybe I'm just tired of NBA rumors in the twitter age.  I don't know.

The OKC deal is probably the worst of the lot, it's a combination of spare parts and redundant pieces. And a pick. Thanks, I'd rather keep Garnett.

The Chicago deal is probably the best. But there's zero chance that the Bulls will move Noah for Garnett.

They're all garbage

Rather sink with the kg ship and go down shooting then pull the trigger on those abysmal and laughable trades

I love Kevin Garnett

BUT

We live in a city where one franchise has dominated, in a salary cap league, for more than a decade. To stay competitive, they have maintained an unsentimental front office. They have let a ton of fan favorites go over the years- Randy Moss, Richard Seymour, and Deon Branch.

It just seems obvious that, at some point, you will have chances to make your team better by cutting bait. When folks post that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett should retire as Celtics no matter what, or that you could never ever trade them for a package of young blue chip players, I feel like they just aren't making the connection.

Most of the trades that have a chance of actually happening don't involve young blue chip players.

I'd part with him...for something worth it...these are not, none of these deals bring us anywhere but worse now and the foreseeable future

I'd also rather part with pierce myself...I'm not sentimental about him being a career long Celtic...what exactly did he bring us pre kg? Not much. As long as kg is here we're respectable.

Because 2 1/2 years of Kevin Garnett is better for the team than whatever that whatever that hodgepodge of injured and/or unproven players will be able to give you.

The best Kevin Garnett Trade is to NOT do one...don't trade either him OR PAUL PIERCE...

Some of the rumors out there as far as what we'd get for KG...if I were Danny, I'd hang up the phone.

These C's aren't some carcass for the buzzards to pick off of.....I think this team can still do some things...as a fan, I have the right to believe.

I am so glad KG made cetain to hve a no-trade trade clause put in his contract.

That way, no matter how many ludicrous, off-the-wall ideas people pull out of their you-know-what, I can sleep easy knowing it's nothing but talk.

KG AIN'T GETTING TRADED!  ACCEPT IT.
