Celtics 24/7

Instant Video Trade Reaction

After today’s big moves (trading Perk and Nate to Oklahoma City for Jeff Green and Nenad Krystic, trading Semih Erdin and Luke Harangody to Cleveland for draft picks, and trading Marquis daniels to sacramento for cash), sportscave.tv reached out to us for our reaction. Peep the video below. You can also see on a more positive reaction from an Oklahoma City Thunder blogger on the sportscave site (note that the OKC blogger does confirm that Jeff Green is more equipped to play a small forward position (which is what the Celtics need to spell Pierce).

Let us know what you all think of the trades.

Rasheed Wallace is not coming back. forget it.

This is a poor move for the boston celtics. Nick Sava was generous by calling it a “C” trade for the celtics. it’s a “C-” at best. Perkins was the best, toughest, most physical defender in the NBA. The chemistry he brings to the team is huge, even if intangible. He is especially valuable deep in the playoffs when trying to stop dwight howard, gasol, bynum. The celtics needed a backup for pierce. they could have bought one (battier, pietrus), even if it was perhaps a bit too expensive. Losing perkins will hurt more, especially when the health of shaq and jermaine o’neil are big question marks. And, they gave up semih erden and harrongody for a measely 2nd round pick. The one advantage we had over miami was size, and we just gave that up. Danny Ainge slaughtered the chemistry of the team and slaughtered the core of the celtics defense, the tough, physical, 7ft, 280lb best lockdown defenseman in the league.

Green is a benefit. But the problem….. is that we only get 25% of his benefit since he’s only going to be playing 25% of the game. Last time i checked, pierce is still going to be starting. So you can hooooraaahhh all you want about green’s addition. At the end of the day, he’s in the game less than 15 minutes.

You’re telling me that 15 minutes from a third rate player on the bench without team chemistry is better than the best, toughest, low post defensive player in the league?

Not to mention Krstic is struggling.

This is a terrible move for the boston celtics. If they dont win the title, Danny Ainge is going to take a ton of heat for this. If they do win the title, perk better be on the duck-boat during the parade! This is a sad day for the boston celtics.
