Looks like a lot of Maybe's to me.....
Just think we should get any young prospects and picks that we can(only if they come with expiring contracts). PP and KG are gone after this year anyway IMO.Why not get some assets for them?
Yes, that's the whole idea - because we have never seen this team play for a long stretch (more than 2 or 3 games) without Rondo, there is no possible way for us to be able to predict how we will do.
But my point is that unlike last season, this team is incredibly deep. We have a LOT of talent on this roster which, to this point, has simply been underperforming.
If this team gives it 100% effort every night than we can beat any team out there, it's only a question of whether they will do that...or whether they will continue with lame effort.
Either way trading the only two guys who give us a shot at competing isn't the answer.
Pierce doesn't want to go to any other team - trade him and he would rather retire then play elsewhere, I'm sure of that. Ditto with KG. Everyone is talking like it's the right thing by them to trade them to a contender, but do you honestly think they want to go elsewhere?
I think they'd rather fight this season out, then if it doesn't work think things over in the off-season and decide from there.
Last year we just didn't have enough talent to win without our big four in tact. This season we do, we just lacked the motivation so far.
