    I'd be happy giving up any combo of Al, Paul, Burks, 1st. Maybe I'm in the minority, but I don't mind trading the better of the first rounders, burks, and Al or Paul for Bledsoe. At that point, I think the Celtics actually get quite a nice return to rebuild but still compete for a playoff spot this season since that seems to probably be the intention.

    You can be a quality (ish) big and still not be a piece to build a team around.

    I just don't understand why Boston would be polishing our shoes or wiping our apples for us.....
    They'd have Al's Bird Rights and the ability to extend. Or extend-and-trade.

    I wouldn't mind Garnett for ourselves provided the Jazz did something smart with Paul.

    I love KG for a contender.. But his personal production is declining fairly quickly.
    Great for the Clips, probably not so much for the Jazz.

    I'm looking at it from a mentor/infusion of character angle. This team sorely needs all kinds of intangibles and KG can still play.

    I just figure you'd have to pay an awfully high price. Not really interested in giving up young or future pieces for a guy like that.

    Al is a young, future piece? And is Bledsoe, really? He's a player, but he's not a PG.

    I was thinking something similar. It might take two seasons but if Favors and Kanter could get half the fire that KG has then this team could very well be contending in that same period of time.

    What about something like this:

    http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=awu4qt8

    Bledsoe/Mo
    Hayward/Foye
    Marvin/Butler
    Millsap/Bass
    Favors/Kanter

    It is getting harder to ignore that fact.

    Sorry, didnt have time to read all the 150ish posts,

    but am i interpreting this wrong? I thought Garnett had a no-trade clause?

    OP, that's too much for Bledsoe. He's good but not that good. Besides, not sure we have anything that they'd want. Paul wouldn't get many minutes as they have Odom to backup Griffin; maybe Al could fit in as a low post scorer. Would they want Burks who would never get off the bench based on their current roster?

    and the Celtics won, again, without Rondo.

    I guess we cab deduce that both Rondo and Bledsoe suck. Also, CP3 sucked when in NO.
