The Rumor That Just Won't Die

If you put any stock into such things, you'll notice that the Internet is all abuzz over the rumor that won't die.  Kevin Garnett to the Celtics.  It has been discussed at length for months, to the point where I've gotten sick of posting about it.  But nobody has ever said it was completely ruled out.  In fact, as recenly as last week, Mike Gorman told Celticsstuff Live that Ainge was still very interested in Garnett.  Well, today there are 3 annonymous sources posting on various forums that the deal is on.  That means exactly nothing, ...unless it actually happens.  Not unlike the ARod non-trade years ago, the rumors, facts, and sources all blend together to the point of being white noise static. 

Will it happen?  What would the deal be for?  Is it too much?  Is it worth it?  What if it includes picks?  What about the window?  Are Danny and Kevin golfing together today?  Is there a third team involved?  Are we the third team?  Why hasn't Jefferson be re-signed?  Would KG re-sign?  Do we want him to?  When will it all end?

I wish I had more answers for you, but all I have is more questions.  If we find out anything, we'll let you know.  Till then, just keep your eyes open, watching that pot to see if it will boil.

Oh, and if you need some extra reading, here are some arguements for trading for Kevin Garnett.

So in case you were wondering, I would still (reluctantly) trade Al Jefferson for Kevin Garnett.
