Awesome round of quotes today from Celtics coach Doc Rivers, captain Paul Pierce, and center Kevin Garnett on the ongoing trade rumors that seem to pop up by the day. The most recent round of rumors have Kevin Garnett heading to Los Angeles for Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler. What do the Celtics think of these rumors? Let's start with Doc.
All from (the media), none from us. Really. I would like to say that. Sometimes I like (the media), sometimes, some of the stuff that happens is just silly. It really is. When I wake up in the morning and I hear a trade rumor that I haven't heard in my office, that's silly, and that's what happens.
I heard one report -- I honestly did -- that me, (Los Angeles Clippers guard) Chauncey (Billups), Kevin (Garnett), and Paul (Pierce) had dinner. And I was like, 'I wish I would have known about it. That would have been terrific because I would have made them pay and I could have had a free dinner.'
