Rumor: Owners Give Ainge The Green Light To Blow Up Celtics

Another day, another tremor signaling an upcoming potential earthquake.

But with Paul Pierce dealing with heel issues, Kevin Garnett fading, Ray Allen still effective shooting threes but headed for his 37th birthday and the Celtics 5-8 entering the weekend, the team’s owners gave GM Danny Ainge the official go-ahead to move any member of the troika. "We’ve got to move on," said one Celtics official. "Let’s face reality."

Without [Jeff] Green or [David] West, ownership finally conceded the team doesn’t have the quality reinforcements to make a deep run. Ainge says he won’t hesitate to trade off any member of the Big Three in the right deal. If he can find any takers.

I don't like it, I'm against it, and I'm still skeptical it will actually occur. But there are more and more signs that it could very well happen. Is the end near? Well, ...maybe.
