Default Garnett reportedly turned down trade offer from Chris Paul

i was surprised i didnt see a thread on this yet, considering ISH loves its drama. but if there is one, mods please delete

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...rom-chris-paul

"Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald found that Chris Paul spoke to KG prior to the deadline and made it clear that if Garnett wanted to become a member of the Clips, the superstar point guard would make it happen.

Fortunately for Celtics fans, the Big Ticket declined the enticing offer and held true to his vow that he “will retire a Celtic and be buried in green” (per ESPN)."

considering the first reports of this came from BR, take it with a grain of salt. But if true, does this impact the teams chemistry in any way, shape, or form? And had garnett accepted, would you put them as favorites to come out west?

It's not from BR. It's from a Boston writer. Which means he's obviously going to swing a Celtic angle. Although I admit it's very very interesting and if true it's shocking. I knew KG was the most loyal player in the game but didn't know he prioritized familiarity over rings.

how wouldnt u assume hed prioritize that as his family when u consider him the most loyal player in the game. Kinda go hand and hand. And it was obvious he willingly wouldnt go to the clips. Guys going to like he said, "die in green".

Just LA made a lot of sense with him,and his family living there. Maybe he plans to retire this year and didn't wanna have to deal with it.

On Stephen A Smith's First Take right now CP3 emphatically denied this rumor and said he doesn't even have KG's phone number and hasn't spoken to him since all star weekend when their kids played together.

Clipps aren't a lock for anything, KG or not. Why the hell would he okay the deal? Nobody wants to leave the 2nd most prestigious franchises all-time for one of the worst orginaztions in the history of sports.
