Comcast SportsNet New England’s Jessica Camerato put it bluntly:
Whether it’s about KG, Rondo or Fab, no trade rumor should come as surprise. Basketball is a business. Execs have to explore any/all options.
It’s something Boston Celtics fans should keep in mind as we close within 24 hours of Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline.
Over this past week, Danny Ainge has been one of the most active GMs around the league, reportedly fielding and making several calls.
The names that have come up the most during these talks are that of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
I can hear it now.
“No way, not the captain!”
“Where’s the loyalty?”
“Garnett and Pierce should be Celtics until they die. And when that happens, their coffins should be lowered underneath the floor of the TD Garden!”
How about we act a little more rational?
Say you had a ’98 BMW that you loved. It was your baby. Through the years, it’s gotten you from Point A to Point B. It’s been instrumental to all of your late night food bing

Should Pierce get traded, the 27 point comeback vs. the Nets in 2002 will always be my favorite Truth moment
Accoring to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Celtics are shopping Captain Paul Pierce, but a move remains unlikely because of what they are looking for.

Some he said/she said stuff with less than two days to go before the trade deadline. Here's Danny Ainge:
I’m not trading Rajon Rondo away for discounted dollars because he’s hurt. We collectively as an organization have decided not to do that.
And now Chris Broussard:
Sources say Boston willing to trade injured PG Rajon Rondo in right deal.
For one reason or another a lot...

Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett was heckled at Wednesday night's game at the Staples Center by a Los Angeles Lakers fan who simply shouted "Kevin!" over and over again.
ESPN microphones picked up the fan very clearly heckling Garnett at one point during the second quarter as Dwight Howard was shooting free throws.
Although not very creative on the fan'...

DOWNWARD FACING CELT
NBA players have very stressful lives on and off the court from the physicality to the mental awareness of the game. They need an outlet, a way to bring them back to center. Kevin Garnett, of the Boston Celtics, has found his calm and that’s yoga. Just watch the tenacious Garnett get his downward dog [...]The post Kevin Garnett Does Yoga. Yeah, Yoga. (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
The NBA trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m., and so far nearly every member of the Celtics has been rumored in some sort of trade talks.
That list included Paul Pierce, who was reportedly mentioned in a deal that would send Pierce to Brooklyn in exchange for Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and a first-round pick.
Pierce, now 35 years old, has spent his entire 14-year NBA career in...
Rajon Rondo has been linked to a possible trade in several reports.
Agent for Rajon Rondo, Bill Duffy, tells USAT that Boston GM Danny Ainge assured him today the Celtics PG won't be traded. Story to come.

Another update in a crazy time before the trade deadline, this new information seems to be pretty plausible. Rondo is currently out with a season-ending injury, so his value would not be very high...
The Boston Celtics currently sit with a roster of 13 bodies, but two — Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger — will miss the rest of the 2013 season.
The Celtics may be looking to add a big man to their core, and one name that has popped up is DJ White. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Boston Celtics will look to sign the former Charlotte Bobcat to a 10-day contract.
As the NBA trade deadline nears, the Washington Wizards traded guard Jordan Crawford to the Boston Celtics for Leandro Barbosa, league sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
The Celtics could be headed for a seismic shake-up, and it could be happening very soon.
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has a nugget-filled post about the Celtics and their trading prospects with the Thursday trade deadline looming. While he reports a potential deal that would send Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Clippers is dead for now, it could certainly be revitalized...

The Celtics marched into Laker-land with dead feet and tired minds. You could see from the get go that the momentum they had built prior to the all-star break was drying up faster than Kevin Garnett's resolve.
We could argue and beat a dead horse about the lack of point guard play, but no one hardly speaks about the elephant in the room. The very real need for a rugged big...
The Nets have offered Marshon Brooks and Kris Humphries along with a first round pick for Paul Pierce. Celtics politely declined. This according to Wojo.
He has more about the KG to the Clippers rumor in that article as well. Sounds like it'd have to be a domino thing where Pierce gets dealt and then KG waives his no-trade clause and accepts the deal.
