Right at this moment, I am in disbelief on the deal that would send KG and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. In just a span of a week, Boston lost the major pieces of the 2008 championship. Coach Doc Rivers headed to LA for the Clippers. The reality of it hasn’t quite bite me yet but seeing him on the press con, and was introduced as the new head coach and VP for Basketball Operations; you got to slowly digest the reality that he won’t be back on the bench of the Celtics. And just when I thought, that was enough for now, Danny Ainge didn’t think so.
Now, KG and Paul will be heading to Brooklyn. WOW. I do not know what else to say. How can you send two of your veterans, those two person whom this organizations loved, and has cling with? How can you deal them both at the same time? This may be emotional but damn, I really believe that KG and Paul deserve a Celtics retirement. I don’t know which is uglier, trading Rondo before or now leaving him with apparently no one. No one from his previous core team. Now, he must step up. He must guide this team. He must act like a total leader ‘cause the rebuilding Celtics will likely to depend on him.
So far, I haven’t see the good in Danny Ainge’s moves this offseason. The rookie they got was a so-so according to sources. Well I really hope this tremendous move of KG and Paul would mean an addition of perhaps Josh Smith, or perhaps he could look for other free agents whose deal would make into the cap. But still, it won’t be easy to accept that comes October KG and Paul wouldn’t be wearing green and white. It totally sucks!
Is rebuilding this bad? ‘Cause it’s my first time to witness it. Goodbye to an amazing era in Boston. I didn’t expect that the lost against the Knicks would pull the trigger for the era to end. I never thought time would come for this to happen. Maybe basketball is still about business. The rings, banners, and the luxury of it.
