The Big Three -- Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen -- brought a championship to Boston in their first season, and have kept the Celtics among the Eastern Conference's elite since joining forces in 2007. But with the C's sitting at 4-8, and each player continuing to get older, is it time for Danny Ainge to break up the unit and start fresh? Things certainly aren't as pleasant now as they were during that championship campaign, when the C's started the season off 29-3, so Boston could enter a rebuilding mode sooner rather than later. If that's the case,...

Paul Pierce to Los Angeles Lakers trade rumor

The thought of Paul Pierce being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers turns my mind into Satan and my heart into a pit of sharks tearing away my inner flesh. But that’s the latest rumor. (Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio)Also, the Lakers reportedly are trying to find a way to land Paul Pierce. Not sure yet, what they are willing to give up. But again, it won’t be an easy deal to make...

Could The Celtics Trade Pierce And Start Rebuilding Now?

The answer to that question, regarding the Boston Celtics and their "Big Three" as they stumble out the gate this season with a 4-8 record, is I guess, yeah, possibly. While I personally didn't think we'd be engaging in this type of conversation at all this season, or at least not this early, I suppose it is fair to begin speculating on whether or not Danny Ainge...

Boston Celtics fielding calls about Paul Pierce's availability

With the Boston Celtics looking horrific through the first 12 games of the season, other contenders have reportedly been calling Danny Ainge about the possibility of trading Paul Pierce. (Yahoo! Sports) As Kevin Garnett and Allen become free agents this summer, money will peel away from the salary cap. Between then and now, the bigger question promises to be: Does ownership...

How bad is the Celtics start?

Some of us are optimistic the Celtics will get their sh*t together and turn on the jets... eventually. They can't be this bad for the duration of the season, can they? The Cs are 4-8. Twelve games represents 18% of a 66 game season. That's a decent sample. Here are some ugly numbers: Have two fewer wins than the Cavaliers One more win than New Orleans Are...

How to save the Boston Celtics

Is Kevin Garnett the most expendable Celtic, and could he be used to acquire Dwight Howard? Anything is possible The Boston Celtics won last night against the Toronto Raptors, but make no mistake, this is a team that needs a major change-up if it’s going to compete for an NBA Title this season. All off-season, Celtics fans have told themselves that as long as the Celtics get into...

John Hollinger: Kevin Garnett is Boston's biggest problem

Kevin Garnett and the majority of the Boston Celtics have looked old, slow and stuck in cement for the majority of the season. That shouldn't come as a major surprise to anyone watching the games since the Celtics actually are old and slow. It just seems to be that people are in denial about how old and slow this team actually is and continue to blame this season's issues...

Report: Tough to land proper trade value for Big Three

Danny Ainge, as GMs should, will look at all possibilities to improve the Boston Celtics roster. He will inquire what Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen might fetch at the trade deadline. He will (and has, according to reports) field calls about Paul Pierce’s availability. He will explore what the Celtics could net by trading Rajon Rondo. He has to do those things, and if he trades...

The Beast is Back, our Hopes still Not

Last time Kendrick Perkins met Kevin Garnett and the rest of the Celtics team on the court we were a serious contender. We had beaten the Lakers, the Heat and were having quite a successful season. The problem then was who would be the starting center for us. We had Shaq, Jermaine, Semih and Perkins. We had been beaten by the Lakers in the previous Finals because of the lack of...
