yeah this makes me a little uncomfortable. this is now a pretty good team, they have the best 3 player combo that i've since barkley clyde and the dream. I'm only wondering how healthy ray allen will be this season, if he is healthy, this is a really really good team.
they need to and will add some more players, probably veterans, a guard and power forward/center. (rose, jones, and dickau???).
but but you have three guys that can take responsibility for 95% of the winning games they had last season. in total they won 85 games, so together they can win at least 50 (or more) and be a really good team
great trio sure.... great team, i don't think so, at least not for a while...
besides the aging trio the rest of the team is dleague level at best... do i hate them more now? not as much as when they had larry and mchale...
This is a good short term move for Boston....but what happens in another 2-3 seasons when the tripod's legs get wobbly n oldER?

I dont expect for this team with no real PG, absolutely no bench making any serious noise besides 1st round playoff exit.
Maybe next yr after they figure out how to work on the kinks and upgrade certain positions then they might be dangerous.
We have 17 players, lets give some to boston. Lol. Jared Jeffries anyone?
Man, I wish I had a couple of years of winning. What, what are you waiting for? The Knicks to be competitive? Hell, with Isiah running the show having Curry as his main guy, we're gonna wait a while. Even one season would be great. I'm not a Knick fan who doesn't like a losing pattern of seasons and bad management, therefor I'm not down with Isiah's plan. I agree with some of his moves, but I don't like his motive and the slow progression of a team thats already over the cap. Ha, atleast 4-5 trades blew up on Isiah's face, but we're still on year 4 of his 10 year plan? Please, how many chances are we going to give this guy. What makes him so special from the other GM's we had? I'm looking at our record and I see nothing. All I see is hype about average to good players. No all stars, no superstars, no leaders, no guys with great playoff experience. So what direction are we heading, and how fast are we going? It seems like every where else in the NBA is becoming more competitive and we're going at our little pace. Isiah needs to keep up or backdown.
Players like PG-Rondo, PF-Scalibrine, and C-Perkins will have a great first season with these Franchise players, the season after that they will be recognized as some great Role-Players to have around Star-Players.
The most important thing to worry about now is alot of unemployed NBA Role Players are having their Agent call the Boston Celtics the day after the KG trade to get a TRY-OUT in this Celtics Training-Camp for their empty roster.
I'm sure whomever the Timberwolves cut (even Telfair) Boston will pick back up.
As Knick-Fans we have no other reason but to hate this Boston team from stopping us from getting the Atlantic Division Title this season...
At the start of the Lakers season with Malone & Payton they WON 15 games out of their first 21 games that season. They came to New York and beat our Knicks up Physically, I was so upset with Coach Don Chaney for not getting a technical or getting his butt up off the bench to argue at all the nonsense calls that was made against the Knicks in that Laker vs Knick game.So? When Lakers brought in Malone and Payton, it took them a while for them to gel.
Sorry, but the Lakers walked right through every body at the Start of the 2003-4 season untill Shaq pulled his old injury routine, which he does each season after getting off to a great start. Kobe had a reason to be pissed at Shaq that reason, but not in the FINALS...
big deal...man we can still beat them but they could be more dangerous in the east... they have nobody else for backup
