Hopefully history will repeat itself. From ProBasketball News
Historically, whenever a superstar or rising player is traded, his old team doesn’t get back equal value or a fellow superstar and his new team gets an energetic, hungry player who just needed a change of scenery.
Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett are expected to give Boston more than that. They’re expected to bring a championship right away or in the near future.
History is on Boston’s side.
Many greats who have been traded either have brought their new teams a championship in their first seasons, brought a title within a couple of years of their arrival or gotten the squads to the Finals in Year 1. And many of the players have won the MVP award.
