Default if clippers get garnett... theyel win the title. hes that much of a defensive anchor

watch out.... teams should be lining up to get him right now. he turns the entire team makeup/chemistry into a defensive minded hustle group

its not so much his individual play. but how he communicates and runs the defense. hes been the real dpoty every year for the past half decade

fancy blocks and rebounds arnt everything. howards team defense is garbage compared to garnett

Uh... that just means he needs to approve the trade and waive it. Of course he would leave the Celtics for the Clippers if he wants a chance at another ring. He lives in LA in the offseason too and that's where his family is obviously.

One question: Did you see how KG treated Ray when he tried to greet him during the season opener?

He would have to be the biggest hypocrite in the world to waive his no-trade clause and join LA. Yes, his family is there but there are no problems between him and his family right now while he is playing for Boston.

He's about to turn 37 though. Why would it be an,act of betrayal? Boston wants to rebuild as well. Plus Ray went to a rival Heat team, not the same.

Not an act of betrayal but indirectly admitting the Clippers are a better team than the C's and that he would rather leave to pursue a second ring than to stay and retire with the team that got him his one and only ring.

Boston does need to retool not rebuild but gaining a washed-up Caron Butler and a PG like Bledsoe for one season (Before Rondo gets back) is'nt my idea of rebuilding nor should it be in the best interests of any Celtics fan.

Yes, he's old and would rather shoot a fadeaway from deep 2 then take it inside. But he's KG and i just don't see him not retiring a Celtic.

To paraphrase KG "ANYTHINGGG IS POSSIBLLEEEEE!!"






Clippers not a rival? NBA is a competition, 30 teams, 1 goal.


I think every team is a rival, especially a contender like LAC

KG is the biggest everything stupid out there. So hypocrite could just get added to the list.

Oh and if he lives in LA in the offseason, that explains some of his bitch ass acting a bit.

The only thing no trade clause does is that KG himself can stop the trade. Obviously Boston asked him prior to agreeing a deal with Clippers.

Ray back-stabbed contending Celtics and went to play their biggest rivals.

If Ainge tells KG: "I cant get this team to contend anymore, and blowing it all up. Could you agree to trade <xxx>, so your contract wouldnt be holding rebuilding Celtics?"

As you can see, its a complete opposite of what Ray did. He harmed his team, while KG by leaving would help his rebuilding team. Provided, Ainge wants to blow it up. If he doesnt - KG isnt going anywhere, and will retire as Celtic as he said he would.

Celtics doesnt need them, you are right, but 3rd team might. So three team trade could work, with everyone getting what they want.

If the Celtics agree with OP's second part of the title of this thread then KG's untouchable.

He'll stay put as a Celtic until he retires. IMHO

If they do trade him, it's like imploding their nucleus, they might as well start over and rebuild.

Not unless CP3 stays healthy. Im so tired of these damn injuries affecting my teams!

If Garnett really does become a Clipper, I hope its the DJ trade and not the Caron/Bledsoe trade. Who will back up Paul? Barnes as a starter?

There goes that depth
