I WISH, Hags. I can't stand Reggie as a broadcaster -- he just says exactly what we're seeing, often messing up pronunciation and grammar in the process. Terrible broadcaster. I wish the Sixers were sucking more so Doug Collins could come back and get down on press row again
Reggie Miller is gonna take a leave of absence from his duties at TNT to drop 3's with Ray Allen all day, haha
Who else is floating around without a contract?
Leon Powe, the pride of Cal, could serve a bench role, but he and Murphy aren't even close to making up for Perk. Sheed is the only recently retired big man that makes any sense to me. Where is Robert Horry? haha
your not telling me anything i don't already know Dan. I am still sick to my stomach. It would be one thing if this frontcourt was healthy, but none of them are and you can't count on them come playoff time. I think its reasonable to assume Shaq will be ready to go, but i don't expect anything from Jermaine. Is Ainge really this dumb? I mean, i dont think so? So what comes next? It has to be something more than Troy Murphy
You'd better hope he's got something, because otherwise the Celtics just blew both feet off
Exactly, the defense lost at the Center position is the big issue. The trade filled a big need for the Celtics. The problem is it created an even bigger need. Perkins was an absolute huge asset come playoff time because of the defense he could play on Dwight Howard, the Lakers bigs, etc. I HATE the trade at this point, but time will tell what Ainge has up his sleeve.
I wonder if he's got much left in the tank -- seemed like if he can prevent injury, 'Sheed could play again. Boston' needs his DEFENSE more than anything else.
I made the earlier post because it just wouldn't make sense without the Celtics having something else planned. And no Murphy does not feel the gap left by Perkins. And after losing size in a trade, trading 2 frontcourt players for basically nothing makes little sense unless something else follows. They were obviously clearing roster spots in that trade. My gut was telling me Rasheed with no sources to back it up. Well, i am now seeing reports that Wallace is indeed contemplating a comback once again. We will see.
Watson, I'd have to say the Thunder, at a glance. Certainly of the "smaller" trades, picking up Perkins was a big one, I think.
You could argue the Nets will probably win some more games, but they're irrelevant either way
Hags, thanks for answering Money's request -- makethat, you're seriously throwing money away there. The Nugs could potentially win a best of 3 playoff series, but not a best of 7...the Mavs, Spurs and Lakers would all dispatch of Denver pretty easily
Haven't even begun, Z! But you can be damn sure Gill and I will parse out a few intriguing ones on a podcast preview!
Dan which team better'd itself more than any other on deadline day?
Well if it's Greg!
I agree, OkC made some nice trades -- got rid of pieces that weren't NECESSARY and picked up a big man in Perkins that can impose himself on defense. Wait, defense? In Oklahoma?
