He's right, to a point. But my problems aside, the momentary pleasure of watching the association's most overhyped star shit down his leg in the clutch - again - was indeed enjoyable. The twain don't meet, LeBrick. Enjoy your summer. I'm taking my talents to Applebee's for lunch. BWHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Don't tell Perkins what ESPN's saying about him. Or that they're right. :-)

Doesn't score. Doesn't rebound. Doesn't defend the rim. Scowls great. Fouls a lot. Perkins is going to fade away in OKC, the same way he would have faded away in Boston once Garnett - whose presence on the floor made Perkins - retires. Hahahahahahahaha. I gotta run over to CelticsBlog and watch the heads explode over there when they read this. Classless, far be it from me to agree with you, but you're right. This trade didn't work out for either team. But at least Ainge didn't drop $36 million on nothing.

I disagree, and I think Rondo has a bigger chance of being moved than any of the Big 3, because he's the most valuable trade chip of the group. Quite simply, I believe it's folly to go forward with the four of them together, because Rondo can't score and the Big 3 can no longer be counted upon to score the ball consistently against athletic opponents. The four of them don't fit together anymore. If Rondo stays, the Big 3 have to be broken up to keep the franchise advancing. If the Big 3 stay, we have to add a consistent scorer at the point or we'll have no offense in crunch time against the Heat, Bulls, etc. again. Ainge knows that. He was half right with The Trade - Perkins isn't contributing shit to OKC offensively or defensively. Thank God Ainge didn't pay him, like the continuing stream of basketball illiterates on the Web are continuing to demand. For Christ's sake, there are STILL threads conflating this guy while Tyson Chandler turns him into his bitch. Ainge didn't get much back, but at least Green's a trade chip and we don't owe him $36 million. Ainge will make some sort of a move with these four. Once the lockout ends, I expect something significant to happen. The odds point toward Rondo, but we'll see.

Rondo for DWill? Sign me up.

Ainge certainly didn't overpay his own pending free agent - Perkins - like the stupid money OKC paid him. I'm not overly worried about it, especially Green. You can pay him or he's a nice trade chip to pair with Rondo and try to land a scorer at the point.

Ainge is, of course, absolutely right about the trade. Perkins changes nothing about the outcome, and the painful truth for OKC is he changed nothing about the outcome in their series, either. Enjoy that stupid contract, Presti. The delusional Perkins mancrush crowd will refuse to admit it forever, but they're full of it - and themselves. The truth is neither team got what they needed from that deal. Green is tradeable; Perkins isn't with that giant price tag. There's a draft pick we have as well. So while we didn't make out as well as we hoped, Ainge is in a FAR better position post-trade than Presti to divest.

Yeah, surrrrrreeeee he is. You might gather from this blog that I don't agree with, well, anything you say. You would be correct. You're wrong in this case, also. Good player, yes. NO player who shoots as abysmally as Rondo is - and chucks bricks consistently over a number of years where his alleged improvement is promised - is a "cornerstone" player. Period.

Rondo's toughness is a given. As is the "oh, my God" whenever he rises to launch a jumper or the "attack with the basketball" when he's pounding it 18 feet from the basket with no one guarding him as the shot clock winds down. The kid is tough. You don't just give him away. But you also don't Game 3 as an excuse to leave the phone on off if there are cornerstone players who you can obtain.

Funny stuff. Harden's a better defender, hate his random chucking, though. Reality is starting to dawn on Presti and the Thunder kingdom - dumb old Scotty Brooks could have slid Ibaka into the starting lineup, used Green as his lead scorer with the second unit and rode Nazr and Kristc to a more efficient lineup. Instead, they're paying $36 million for four points and six boards a night on one leg. The idea that Perkins equals 18 is unsupported by any objective analysis and is beyond stupid. The guy is dragging his leg down the floor and is contributing little or nothing to the Thunder. However, I did learn one thing listening to the TV dolts the other night, and I quote, "Perkins has helped the Thunder, statistics aside. He looks mean." Well, damn, If looking mean equals stupid money, I need to work on my own glare. Bottom line: Neither team got what it wanted in the short-term from this trade. Going forward, I'm thrilled not to be wearing Perkins' idiotic extension around our necks.

Chuckle. No one but the dolts in the OKC media can seriously think Perkins is worth $9 large. It's ridiculous. As for Green, anyone stop to consider that Danny might be talking him up for trade value?
1 reply
That's the only thing that matters every summer. And he never, ever works on his shooting. His inability to score the basketball from the perimeter and foul line is inexcusable. I've got a better chance of being the best player in the association than Rondo does. WILL. NEVER. HAPPEN. Too thick-headed.

I agree totally with the need to make a change at the point. I don't think Danny and Doc have the balls to do it, but it's abundantly clear that the Big 3 aren't good enough to play 4-on-5 with Rondo offensively any more and make it work.
1 reply
It could be worse. We could be paying $36 mil for four years for 4 points and 6 boards a night. Chemistry, my ass.

None of this is to downgrade Rondo's talents. When Pierce, Garnett and Allen were younger, he was the perfect point for this club. There are two significant problems going forward as I see it: Rondo still is what he was four years ago - a distributor with very, very limited offensive skills whose defense is chronically overrated by Celtics Fan. The second is obvious: The Big 3 aren't able to carry this club offensively on a consistent basis every night, and more critically, Pierce and Allen are slipping in their efforts to contain the more athletic wings in the East. Personally, I'd be pleasantly surprised if New Orleans or New Jersey is willing to move their points. But I think Ainge HAS to make those calls and put together as attractive a package as possible. Rondo's a square peg in a round hole now as this group ages.

Don't agree about Doc being linked to Rondo at all. If anything, Rondo's stubborn nature is a frustration to Rivers. Here's the reality of the situation: Pierce, Garnett and Allen aren't frontline scorers any more; they're complementary players who we can not go forward with 4 on 5 offensively, which is life with Rondo. If you insist on keeping Rondo - and I don't; I'm entirely down with making a run at Chris Paul or checking the Nets' affection with DWill - then you MUST break up the Big 3 or the deterioration continues for another year. Perhaps Wyc's good with passing on a year while we wait for Garnett's contract to come off the books; I'm not. And I'm not about to let one tough performance from Rondo expunge the numerous holes in his game.

I'd like to believe, but we are just out-athleted in this series. Badly. And the poster child for unathletic pros is the round one, Glen Davis.

Tell me, what factual evidence do you have that "fit" matters? Please produce quotes and statistics, although the numbers won't help this nonsense you spew, because Perkins barely cracks the stat sheet. The idea that Kendrick Perkins would change the fact this team's key players are old is 100 percent unadulterated bullshit.
1 reply
Please, stop with the moronic Perkins bullshit. He has done NOTHING in OKC, like he did NOTHING here. As most of you Perkins-o-phile dolts do, you're relying on some esoteric piece of bullshit - "he was a better fit" - here that you have zero factual evidence to support. Fit my ass. There are 9 million reasons to ship his grossly overpaid, grossly overrated ass out for any kind of cornerman help. So let's see your list. What exactly would Perkins have done to change the outcome last night - besides his stock technical foul for running his yap and the usual pair of illegal screens that stunt runs? And, of course, you've got predictably no answer for this one: How would the presence of the Human Foul Machine keep Paul Pierce from being as gassed as the other fossils we roll out in the starting lineup? Here you are, again, with another piece of Perkins stupidity. You really should take this whining bullshit to Celtics Blog, where there are plenty of dolts busy every day trying to equate their beloved Perk to Wilt Chamberlain.

The execution offensively in the fourth quarter was atrocious. If you want to blame something intelligently for the loss, that's it. We played almost perfectly defensively in the fourth quarter to give ourselves a chance to win - we just couldn't execute shit on the other end. Why this team struggles so much with the notion that the basketball is best taken to the rim in crunch time escapes me. Of course, we all know that Perkins would have changed all that. Guffawwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

We wouldn't have home court anyway. This team is old. We've got to get our arms around it. This group is finito, and Danny's got some work ahead of him breaking the group up, whether he moves one of the oldsters or does something with Rondo. The latter is certainly indefinite, but it'd be some entertainment watching the same dolts who consistently conflate Perkins' talents elevate Rondo to Cousy-like status. I'll say this for The Trade: It certainly dragged the Celtics blogosphere head-first into the stupid season.

You encapsulated just about everything I would have said about the dolts who continue to prattle on about a center who isn't contributing shit to the Thunder. This team is old. Period. Ran out of gas last night. Period. Jeff Green played well last night. Period. We get it. People who hate the trade are going to continue their desperate search for vindication, no matter how stupid it makes them look. We know you love Perkins, but frankly, shut the hell up about it. Kendrick Perkins makes NO difference whatsoever in this team today. None. Kendrick Perkins is not and never has been worth anything close to $9 million a year. He's proving it every time he steps on the floor in Oklahoma City. He isn't missed, and he won't be in the future. Period. Anything else is bullshit.

I feel you, brother. Took a large rock to the ankle while mowing yesterday, but this is the playoffs. You mow on one leg or you're Andrew Bynum - a pussy.

Certainly, it can be braced. I would imagine it's going to require a painkiller to play Monday, and probably the removal of some fluid.

Good observation. There were two people - Shaq and Jeff Green - who changed the game dramatically without denting the stat sheet. You summed Shaq up well. Green did an exquisite job defensively and was very effective using his speed to stretch the floor. Going to need both of those every game out.
