The Truth About The Deal

Here is the truth about the deal. The deal was done by the owners of the team, it was just pure buissness, it wasn't about sports, it was about buissness. The celtics did the Sonics a huge favor of getting rid or Baker and his huge contrac and in exchange the celtics got some money no one knows about, please do you really think that the celtics will let someone beat them for the 16 championships? It was the same deal that was done with Phoenix and the Nets, why would a team give away their best player, their all star, their all devensive team player, and their captain for years for some young guy? Who is gonna teach them? The coaches don't do that but the mentors do, the old guys that have been in this league for a long time do. It wasn't done to make any team better but about the buissness (the LARGE amount of $$$) that was within the deal.

I don't want to hate Baker, and when (and if) he plays good I am not gonna be a Baker lover, I like him right now and think that it was a better move then what we had, except that we traded Forte.

I like it though

I'm with both of those comments I think Vin B will be a good relief player spelling Battie and Walker and I don't care who we bring in we will be in the top 4 or 5 seed for the next 5 to 6 years just becuase of Pierce and Walker(barring no major injuries) Also if it is true about the big $$$$ being sent from team to team then lets hope we can go get a bonafide PG. If you look at our roster we only have one real PG(JR Bremer) Now Delk and Shammond can play it but they are both natural 2's....Lets say maybe McGinnis from LAC hes an unrestricted FA or Maybe Earl Boykins who was released by LAC. I think Baker will be a big force in the East whne he's in and he will help bring in another scoring big man off the bench. I also think he's gonna help when we play the Lakers in the Finals(he did pretty good in the Semi's this year against Duncan.)(also refer to Early Predictions in NBA thread)
