I've seen a lot of reactions to the trade around the web both positive and negative.  But most focus on the winning-now aspect of it.  Here's one view (by the Association) that strays a bit from that.

I see the C's moving up into the top 4 of the Eastern Conference in 2007-08, but with Doc Rivers at the helm they are a first-round loss. It's 2008-09 that I really see the C's as a dangerous team. Rondo will have a whole year as a starter under his belt, Jefferson will be more polished, the new Big Three will learn how to play together and... if Doc Rivers is fired and replaced by a respectable head Coach, the C's are a serious Eastern Conference contender.
