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 disagree, Chauncey Billups is a young talented player who will make the most of a starting job in Detroit...
