well, this thread did not last long did it?  ;D

Westbrook is an electric player, but with the acquisition of Kemba, it made absolutely no sense. I guess that didn't stop Houston, though! Glad to put this stressor to bed.

i ll bet Danny had a deal on the table for Westbrooke ,   ind be shocked if he did not . Dannys offer was not good enough to beat Houstons is my guess.  If Westbrooke was a bad fit in Boston , he is worse in Houston.  That was a desperation move by the owner of the Rockets to be in the title mix with the LA's ,  he didn't want the title decided before the season was even started . He is right ....in a way ......Bron could get hurt and Kwahi could blow out a hip ....and Rockets would be right back in the mix .

not sure how 2 ball dominate players can play together.  Houston traded one who did not fit for another who has the same problem.  Houston needed PG, not RW.

Well done, Sam Presti. Got a fi****l of first round picks for Westbrook.

Edit: ha - it bleeped out the middle of f-i-s-t-f-u-l.

Yeah, it does that with the acronym, s-t-f-u. Even if it is in the middle of a word. That doesn't beat the Tremont Waters father dying thread where the same thing happened when you make Tremont Waters all one word. It's always interesting to see what words get 'starred' and what don't.

Still think Hayward for Kevin Love make sense.

We have a logjam at the 3 and no power forward.

Plus, I think Kemba/Brown/Tatum/Love/Kanter is a pretty good team.

Love is basically an Al Horford replacement.

Nothing at all against Hayward. I just think either him or Tatum needs to go and both are too small to play the 4. Plus, Hayward's contract matches well with alot of the top players in the league.

Kevin Love is not moving the needle. He also is signed until 2023 and will be making ~30 million each year. Hayward on the other hand is signed until 2021 at that number.

I think in the Celtics long term interest, they need to just ride out this season with sub-par bigs.

I would be all for a GH for Love trade if we got Capela or Adams instead of Kanter. Kanter plus Love is just a bad combo defensively.

Sidenote: people overlook KLove now a days. Hes still an elite rebounder and shooter with championship experience.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

He was hurt last year and shot 38% from the field, is over 30, and is owed 120 million over the next 4 years.

Its not so much that he's overlooked, its that we need to see him play at an all-star level again before he's worth a second look.

Do not want Love.  He is washed up and doesn't play defense.
He was good 3 years ago.  Not since.

Celtics should pursue KA Towns.  We still have draft picks, Brown, and Tatum.  Some of our assets should be attractive.

I am hoping this is all the creation of the SI writer and not any based on any "inside info" from a Celtics source. This trade would be absolute insanity. We finally got rid of one head case who dribbled the ball too much - why would we want another ?

Towns ain't a champion - he just doesn't have the heart for battle that you need to win a title - and he is lazy on defense.

We can rest easy with Westbrook traded to Houston. Now they have two of the highest usage guys ever!
