Default Re: Biggest fail of the night goes to...

people calling the celtics losers or fail of the night don't realize that they would have been in a same position in a years time but without the ability to stockpile of assets.

Boston is not a FA destination so the only way to rebuild is to stockpile assets and make the necessary move for a star player when the time is right. This trade is similar to Walker to Dal for Raef in that regard which allowed to get Jeferson (because the team won 36 games instead of the 40's which they were projected, also part of the KG deal), West (part of Allen deal) and Tony Allen (solid contributor on contending teams from 08-10)
