Holy crap. Great move for both sides.

Worst case scenario for Stevens, he tanks as head coach in the NBA then sunsets into college bball where he'll undoubtedly be a hot candidate for a major D1 program.

I thought he made a mistake by not going to a bigger program after his back-to-back finals, but I guess it has worked out well for him.

I also love the evolution of the NBA. You have teams like Brooklyn and the Clippers stocking up on superstars. Boston looks like they're going to build a Grizzlies / Pacers type of model. That's the kind of team I see Stevens building -- team that is going to be crazy good on defense.

Better than I expected. Now just don't trade Rondo

mcaj22 07-03-2013 04:45 PM

I think Rondo definitely gets traded

his ego is the size of Boston and there's no way he listens to Brad Stevens. This makes it easier to send him off and paint him as difficult for the young coach to work with

KG and Pierce kept him in line and even then it was tough with his clashes with Ray Allen and Doc Rivers. Those guys gone he wont listen to Stevens and will just look him off and call his own plays on the court.

The Heat get Leonard yet? Where did Noel go again?

The problem the Celtics run into is that PG is the deepest position in the league. Not to mention, teams know Rondo is a PITA.

Kevin Martin headed to Minnesota. Hate it for both teams.

He sucks, but it's funny that OKC is so afraid of luxury tax.

I like the Wolves and the Thunder. Best case scenario involved the Thunder resigning him for a year or two to a reasonable contract. This feels like another Barrea deal for Minnesota.

RealSNR 07-04-2013 11:01 PM

Meh on Kevin Martin.

It's cool because at least he's a legit 2 that we haven't had since for ****ing ever. But if this prevents us from re-signing Pek, I'll be kind of pissed.

Thats too much money for a player that no showed in big games. Id rather Reggie and Lamb get those minutes. Though I would to have like to have seen money on a better 3rd scoring option I'm sure as hell not sad over letting K Mart go for that money. If thry wanted to spend that money, which they obviously dont, they could spend it more wisely.

That will be an ok deal for the Wolves for a year or two but they will regret it after that.
