Kevin Garnett to Boston?

Postby tuff_gong » Mon Jul 30, 2007 6:53 pm

Word is the Celtics and T-Wolves are close to a deal sending KG to the C's. Various reports say the T-Wolves are getting Al Jefferson, Gerald Green, Sebastian Telfair and some are reporting Theo Ratliff and others are reporting Theo and a 1st rounder. After seeing LeBron tear up the Eastern Confrence this spring, I would say the Celtics are an immediate Eastern Conference Finals (at least) contender with KG, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Theo Ratliff would most likely be involved in this deal because the salaries changing hands have to match.
If the Celtics land Garnett it would most definitely make them one of the top contenders in the East.

It will be interesting as it looks like this will go through. The Celtics have totally revamped their lineup this year. They will now have Ray Allen, KG, and I'm guessing Paul Pierce will be a little more motivated to play in more games this year :-)

Well I've never followed the NBA, but I always liked Garnett and grew up a UConn fan. Maybe I'll have to give it a chance ;-D

It's been a rough few years for the Celtics, but something like this would be incredible. The thought of getting KG before was awesome, but now that we have Ray Allen as well...incredible. I just hope they can spread the ball around enough that there aren't any ego problems. I guess I shouldn't worry about that until a deal actually goes down though.

I'm getting more and more convinced Danny Ainge is an idiot every day. Trading his young core away, including Al Jefferson, who I think will be a great player in this league, is terrible. It's a move for the short term, obviously in an attempt to save his job, that isn't likely to achieve anything. Sure this may have made them one of the better teams in the East (and it's still a big maybe, who knows how those 3 will work out playing together), but what does that get you? A few rounds in the playoffs, a possible finals appearance? They aren't actually building anything there, now. It's like they are following the Toronto Maple Leafs guide to managing your team. Keeping your fans happy by seemingly making the effort in bringing in high-priced superstars, making the playoffs, but never really taking that next step.
