The NBA trade deadline has passed and the Celtics did NOT make a major move (at this hour, we haven't heard word of a minor move). Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will all be wearing Celtic green for the rest of the season. There was a completely false Twitter report that the Clippers backed out of a deal that would have sent Ray Allen to Los Angeles for a Eric Bledsoe and a 1st round pick. SI's Chris Mannix reported "interest in Paul Pierce picked up today but Boston's asking price (first round pick, expiring contract) was too high." There's still time for a minor deal to trickle in. Maybe something involving Marquis Daniels for a yet-to-be-named big man. New Orleans was unable to move center Chris Kaman.

As Ray Allen dissolved to the LA Clippers version of the Staples Center hardwood on Monday night, I feared the worse.

C’s better by doing nothing?

The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and all the same guys are still here.  I’d like to that Danny Ainge for listening to me.  Everybody’s main concern now about the Celtics is their lack of big men; Greg Stiemsma is the only active true center on the roster.  But recent numbers show it might not be as great a problem as people think.  Since the All-Star break Boston...
