If Pierce and KJ are still here at 3:01pm, we can forget winning anything for the next 5 to 10 years. We will be stuck as a .500 ball club. The worst position to be in the NBA.

Hey! You're still kicking around here? Not much has really changed. You pushed this agenda last year and they almost made the finals. Would you rather have a very overpaid Jordan and a max contract Josh Smith? Either way as long as the Celtics have Rondo they'll be at least an 8th seed. But if they rebuild and "blow it up" what says the Celtics don't spend the next decade rebuilding? Once again, the reason why the Celtics were not relevant for a while was due to bad drafting. Keeping the original big 3 wasn't the reason why they mostly sucked for 15 years. This argument always annoys me because it disregards this fact. The assets to get KG were also picked in the middle of the draft and further back, you do not need LeBron to win a title...and you can find all stars outside of the top 3 (Pierce was at the back end of the Lottery, I think his career panned out okay). Blowing it up assures you of younger players but not much else

i'm driving up to portland this weekend to see Boston's lone visit to the Northwest this year... i really hope they don't move KG and Pierce.  That would make for a depressing game.

Are you Oregonian? :-O I wanna be Oregonian!

But yeah, a trade involving Pierce/KG would screw up the Earth's axis, it would be terrible

Kj?

Anyways...there's no promise we win anything even if we deal them the last I checked...I'd rather watch kg and Paul go out fighting then deal them and not win anyway

  KJ was a great player, fun to watch. Really liked those old Suns teams. But I digress.

I don't see them being traded... or I hope not.
Truthfully, I can't wait till tomorrow night for all of this talk to be over.

Really?  10 years?  If that's the case, we should fire Danny now and hire a GM who can manage a franchise properly.

I fail to see what assets we're supposedly going to get that will put us in an appreciably better position to win a championship, or why failure to make a deal will set us back an entire decade.

Exactly, this is how I know fans are fooled if they think that we won't more than likely suck for 10 season or more, even after these trades... they think somehow with these trades we'll be contending again next season or be on the path quicker. Sorry but rebuilds aren't a quick road to greatness!

We're going to miss these "good ol' days"!!

So, if you could, you would rather swap the entire roster for Charlotte's rather than see Pierce and Garnett still in green after the deadline?
