With Rajon Rondo done for the year, several who cover the NBA have predicted that this is the end of the Big Three Era in Boston.
Have to expect Boston to look to move some salary before the trade deadline now. Who goes (and for what) will be a tough call for Ainge— Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixSI) January 27, 2013
Just a death blow for the Celtics. Probably kills next season, too. No way they can keep KG and PP, have to blow it up now.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) January 27, 2013
Paul Pierce was in trade talks before the Rondo injury. I think it's safe to say Pierce will be traded by the deadline. #Rebuild— Vince Galloway (@Vince_Galloway) January 27, 2013
So sad that Rondo is done w this torn ACL...have to wonder now if Celtics will blow up the team, trade Pierce and KG...why not w no Rondo?— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) January 27, 2013
As sad as it is to think about, they may be right. This team came in to Sunday with a 20-23 record and in the eighth playoff spot with Rondo....
