My 2cents worth? If I was Danny? My Rant!


Firstly, I want to thank the C's for the excellent, hard fighting season. With the little you had, you still managed to find ways to fight it out. This is the reason why I'm a Celtic fan. The Celtics are true winners, regardless of the outcome.

Now, here's my 2 cents worth, if I was Danny rant, my opinion. I'm hearing the media - sports talking heads - spin talk about the Celtics should rebuild for the future, trade Kevin Garnett & Paul Pierce and come back contenders sometime in the future. Really? Trading KG and Paul Pierce will not solve the C's problem over night nor make the C's a contending future playoff team. You can use Kevin & Paul to help build the C's future with their veteran knowledge, wisdom and spirit to win. What is the number one reason why young teams fail? They don't have veteran leadership. The C's have two of the best veteran leaders in the game. And, the C's should trade KG and Pierce for younger, inexperience players without a vet core around them? If I was Danny, keeping KG and Pierce would be my first priority. I wouldn't waste a single minute. I would have a sit down with Pierce, KG and Doc and discuss how the C's can move forward. Paul Pierce (player option) extend Paul Pierce's contract for one more year. My second move, contact Josh Smith - pursue talks with Smith. Have Rondo, KG & Pierce talking to Josh Smith. My third move, trade Jared Sullinger, Brandon Bass for Marcin Gortat. My fourth move, the development/conditioning of Fab Melo. My opinion, I think Fab Melo is the missing link to the C's success. Fab's off season development is key. He has the potential of being a huge factor for the C's defense/rebounds inside the paint - along side KG or Josh Smith. I highly recommend early training for Fab Melo. I also recommend Paul Pierce to work out early this off season. If I was Danny, this is my roster for 2013/14 season:

starters - Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, Josh Smith, Marcin Gortat

second - Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Fab Melo

- Kevin Garnett @ the 4 & 5 rotation

- Paul Pierce @ the 2 & 3 rotation
