Hi I Am New At This Forum.......i Have Been Pondering This Whole Trade For Iverson And I Think Everybody Is Overrating Al Jefferson.....lets Face It Guys He Is Out Of Shape And Is Extremely Soft.....ryan Gomes Is Showing Way More Heart Then Him. Gomes Has Potential To Be Better Then Walker Because He Is More Under Control And Plays More Like A Big Man Then Walker....we Keep Gomes And If We Dont I Know For Sure We Will Regret It.....(dont Trade Gomes) Gerald Green Is Going To Be A Hell Of A Player....he Is A Spitting Image Of T-mac And We Can Mold Him Into A Better Player Being Pauls Understudy........if He Gets Srtonger And Plays Defense We Have Another Franchise Player.....both Him And Gomes Have Heart And That Should Be Appreicated.....green And Gomes Are Sent To Us Due To The Fact That We Let Johnson Go......remember Him.....i Think God Gave Us Another Chance........and That Is Gomes And Green....so They Should Be Untradeable Right Now....... And P.s I Am Also Liking Allen Ray..........
Trade Al Jefferson,rondo,allen,ratliff (and Thats All) For Allen Iverson..... That Gives Them A Pg Another Defensive Player That Is Also An Grasshopper Like The Other Ai And Can Shoot A Little Better. And Two Big Men 1 That Can Prove Me Wrong And Become A Hell Of A Player
Trade 2 Wally And Jones For Boozer
If Non Is Taken........then Go After Marion
What Do U Guys Think.......please Be Easy With The Comments...lol
I'm sorry but I really did not look at your post very well because you capitalized almost every word you wrote. I know I am not the best at writing but when I saw all those capital letters...you know.
Aside from that...
If the Celtics want Iverson, Philly will want a proven scorer in Sczerbiak in return. That cannot be changed unless they give up Gerald Green, probably more. They would not give up Ratliff unless they had another big man coming back. Maybe Ratliff can help Perkins and Jefferson on their defense. Ratliff also has a large contract which would definitely change things.
So, Ratliff is here to stay unless they get an equal contract/big man back.
I am so excited about Ryan Gomes. Wow! It makes me feel good to see how well he played last season. I guess college ball does help some athletes.

he can help perkins if he is healthy which i doubt.........and the sixers dont want wally do to his contract........as far as green i would give him up for a 31 yr old guy.....would u? but i heard that allen iverson is staying in philly just a couple of seconds so i guess thats dead.......what about marion......he played the 4 in the west i think he can do the same for us
Being a Phoenix Sun (I've always liked the Suns right behind the Celtics), I really like the guy. It'd be nice to get him but I wouldn't want Ainge to give much away for him. I would do a Jefferson and someone else swap for Marion.
I think that you are being overly critical of Al Jefferson. I'm not ready to give up on him yet, mainly because he's still so young. Your basis to get rid of Al and keep Gerald is tremendously flawed.
We have very little to go on about Gerald except a small sampling of games and a few jaw-dropping dunks. Lets not forget that as good as he was at times, he got lost alot on defensive rotations and couldn't guard me or you one on one.
With Al you have seen him for basically a season and a half, and we have a bit more to go on. Calling him soft because of his ankle injuries, is a bit harsh. Especially when it turns out he suffered a bone bruise in his ankle(the 2nd time he injured his ankle), which isn't exaclty like a sprained finger. And he has been working out hard(two a days) this whole offseason and is in the best shape of his career.
You may be ready to move on from Al Jefferson, but seeing as how he's a 6'10 20 yr old big guy, who can score in the post, and rebound. I am definitely not. And if you had talked to me last season during the year, I may have agreed with you. But trading Al away is the type of move that could end you up on Top 10 worst trades. I think we need to absolutely be sure of what he is before trading him. I feel the same way but to a lesser degree about Gerald, mainly because he's a swingman and they are a dime a dozen. Finding talented big guys is alot harder then finding talented swingmen.
i completely see what you are saying but i got a feeling that al's injury is something that is gonna nag him for the rest of his carreer......and green is younger then al so all his flaws will be erased when he gets his chance.....he has the eye of the tiger.....al on the other hand is like an elephant....lol.....i think gomes will be a better pf then al
i wouldn't be suprised at all if rondo ended up being a better player in the league than marcus williams, he's an excellent defender for his size with his long wingspan, he is the quickest guy in the league period, he was a steal from phoenix, but yeh Allen is not going to boston, as soon as draft night had finished he was never going so we can move on and imagine the c's this season with the team they have now
how can u be satisfied with the team at this point.....i played against telfair in high school and he is overrated.........we are going to be destroyed this season with this team........be prepared to be number 1 in the lottery this year.....DA is confussed as a gm and i said that since the Walker trade with Dallas......we get this young picks and pass on these vets and throw them a way.....If you guys were not aware of this but when he got Ricky Davis we also could of got there center( whatever the heck his name is) and all we had to give up was Walter and a pick with the package we gave them......danny is horrible at trades and i hate him...... ........fire danny
well in case you hadn't noticed there's this guy called oden who can apparently play a little bit that might be the number 1 pick next year, but thats beside the point, the team isn't nearly as bad as you think, they're at least as good as washington and orlando on paper, who are both projected to be playoff teams this year, danny has got the squad some depth now with his drafting and trading, we never would've won a championship with walker still here, as for you playing against telfair in high school im sure he must've been a bit better than you give him credit for as he was considered by many to be the top high school player in the nation for a while, danny is one of the most undderated gm's in the league, watch out for when rondo becomes a star and we got him for practically nothing
