As the new year begins, the rumors surrounding the Celtics and coveted bigs like DeMarcus Cousins can only get louder. Louder - that is - until the February trade deadline passes or until DMC is dealt to another team - whichever comes first. It is quite possible that Danny Ainge will come away empty handed or with a less-coveted player but a (serious) change, moving forward, is clearly in order if the C's are to re-emerge as contenders.
It's fun to imagine the potential of a Cousins acquisition and the exciting on-court tandem he could form with fellow Kentucky alum Rajon Rondo (assuming, of course, that Rondo isn't included in any deal for DMC). You can just see the electrifying alley-oops, can't you? For now, however, dreams of a Rondo-Cousins pairing will just have to be that - a dream. But as the saying goes, if you can dream it, you can achieve it, so who knows?
If this dream becomes reality, though, I call dibs on the handle copyright for, "Ron DMC." :-)
