I understand the salaries do not match, but hypothetically: Would you trade Rondo for Dwight?

Yes!
NO!

I think it's a no brainer that dramatically improves our chances this season of winning it all.

No brainer?   Has he helped the Lakers?  That is right, he has not!

He's not healthy this year, but when healthy it would help us.

I don't trust Howard. And I think he's on of the most disappointing and underachieving players in a long time. I also severely question his mental state.

HECK NO!

Not if he's not committed in staying in Boston, and is committed to stop being a crybaby.

While I would do it, I would rather do Rondo for Al Horford.

Either way, the only way I don't do it is if the wrong pieces are included to make salaries match. I always trade an All Star small for an All Star big. It's not like it's MJ or Kobe Or Lebron here.

No way I include Bradley, Sullinger or Jeff Green. Not to thrilled about including Courtney Lee either. Include Bass, Terry, Wilcox, Melo or Barbosa. Probably take a pick or two as well.

Why didn't Rondo dramatically help the Celtics chances?

His teammates weren't hitting shots, including Paul. Lack of effort in the first few games.

Dwight had Pau and Kobe and Nash and still couldn't help the Lakers. For a guy who's supposed to be dominant, he didn't do a thing to help the Lakers chances.

These are all very weak arguments.

You know, this isn't even a realistic trade.  That's how lopsided it would be in our favor if it happened.  Yet, lots of posters still saying no.  Incredible.

This would be a totally stupid trade from Boston.

We have a proven leader, top tier playoff performer and we trade him for diva who hasn't achieved anything in his career? Ridiculous.

Give Howard to a losing team where he can keep smiling on the floor, i'll stick with Rondo's grit, competitiveness and toughness. Qualities Howard has never shown

Even with his very long list of flaws I'd probably still do it. Who knows how Rondo will be after he gets back.

But I do not like Howard. And I do not think you can build a championship team around him as your star. That said the same could be said about Rondo too.

Howard is one of my least favorite players in the league but the trade is a no brainer because he is one of the best when healthy.
