well i wouldnt be surprise if magette doesnt bite... am sure alot of teams can pay magette more.. am just having a thought that he might sign because he wants to win plus if he wins his stock will be higher next year because he will only be playing for a year just like posey that's why posey is asking for more...

Haha I wanted to get them all in. He wouldn'e be a starter at power forward but he could play there for a short period of time with the right match-up and that would be a sick line up.

Ainge isn't a genius. The reason the big three was put together was because KG demanded Ray Allen or no trade. KG is the one who pulled these three together. Ainge just met KG demands...... the rest is history

We were getting Ray Allen whether or not KG came to Boston..he is a genius for pulling off that deal on draft night and drafting Al Jefferson at 15 to later use him as trade bait for a HOF.

If you look at it right now, would you have still done the Al-Jeff for KG trade?

Al-Jeff is one of the best big men in the league now, and a trio of Pierce, Allen, and Al-jeff looks very nice to me.

Very strange, but if it does happen I guess it would make for a good story line when we meet the Celtics in Teh Finals next year

I don`t wan`t ****ing Maggette on my team. Like PBD said, he doesn`t scream unbuntu. We don`t need a 22ppg scorer coming off the bench ****in up chemistry.

Didn't they just draft 2 wing players as well? Giddens and Walker?

I can see them getting Posey back, but not Maggete. If I were them I would have sent Doc Rivers to go get Diop. He would help the Celtics immensely.

Why would any Celtic fan want Maggette on the team, when Pierce, Garnett and Allen are still here?

We need quality role players....

yes because jefferson is light years away from being a great defender ... compared to KG who is the DPOY...

I can't believe you didn't bash Ray and say that Maggette would be the perfect starter for us.
