    He's a 34 year old 2 guard. He's still good for his age, but he's certainly on the decline. I think he will be seriously shopped before the deadline. His contract is worth something to some teams, that want to shed payroll. I heard Sacramento might move Kevin Martin for Allen, since they have Evans, and are in a small market. Moving Martins contract, with maybe Nocioni, would save them a ton of coin.

    I've not had time to follow the Celts too closely - caught the first half of the game against the Magic where they were up 11 and lost the lead... no surprise to me when they lost that game - the way the Magic was playing in the first half they should have been up 30 and weren't. I could tell the Celts were setting themselves up to lose a lead by not playing hard and that's what happened.

    I heard the same thing as you about Allen's contract being worth something in trade to teams looking to dump salary and add a guy with a big contract that's due to expire.

    My only concern is that the Celts gain an albatross contract or two in the process, but I guess the only real choice is to take a "win now" approach given the makeup of the team and the limited time to have Garnett and Pierce put up another banner.

    It was noted by Michael Holley that Danny Ainge's outlook - even with himself, Bird, Parish and McHale, was that they should have been traded before they were.

    If that's his outlook then I think it's a given that the current Big Three will be broken up sooner rather than later.

    i guess everything must come to an end but he has been the least injury prone/most consistent of the big 3 and i would hate to see him go, but i guess this team is moving towards a rondo led team how long before you think pierce/garnett leave?

    I went to UCONN while he was playing there, so Ray's been my favorite Celtic since he joined the team.

    Great game by Jesus Shuttlesworth tonight. Don't expect to see him in anything but a C's jersey next year. His salary doesn't get completely freed up if they let him walk because of the complexities of the luxury tax, so the C's are better off just keeping him.

    He's been knocking back the tri's like cider. So I don't see the problem. He's getting old, but I wouldn't trade him off.

    14 points, 3/3 from three point range with just a little under 10 minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter of a Eastern Conference clinching game.

    You,your site and all the other sites that cram all this garbage on this forum need to get the #$%^ on. Go see if you can post your crap on espn.com.

    Btw I'll bet you a gazzilion dollars either Bird or Russell win. What a gay idea for a poll.

    Best. Defender. In. NBA. History.

    Sorry to Bird, Havelchick, the Jones brothers, Pierce, etc. but when you win as a player and coach the way he did you deserve that honor.

    Plus it doesn't help that they created one of the most even trades in NBA history to get him improving two teams at the same time and still making it look like the Celtics robbed the Hawks!

    You can say that again the greatest winner in team sports history. 11 Championships in 13 years for the Celtics, 2 NCAA championships with Univ. of San Francisco of all places and a 1956 gold medal. Just increadable.

    Here's one for you youngsters. Bill Russell would dominate in today's game even more so then when he played in the 60's.. Anyone that knows basketball, and knows the intelligence, athleticism that Russell had, would have to agree. Russell, had the intensity of Garnett and the brains of Bird. Not sure who I could compare his athleticism to, but he did jump his height. In a former post, someone disputed the effects of his blocked shots ( said to have AVERAGED 17 a game in college)..........
    Down the road, when fans look back at the NBA's greats. Jordan will be just another great player. Russell, will be the player with the social conscious that opened doors up for players and for regular people. 11 championship rings, yea I know..but...........

    Your not paying him anything. If you can't see what Ray Allen has done for this team in his time with the Celtics then you have too much sh!t packed too tight between your ears.

    Looking back on that series you couldn't be more wrong. In game 1 he tallied 25 points by shooting well from near and far making jumpers to stop any orlando rally. He was also ice from the free throw line.

    Game 2 he didnt shoot well at all but commanded mucho attention and had the defense scrambling. He made about 6-7 terrific pocket passes coming off the weak side screen which led to countless buckets.

    Game 3 was a solid game. Ray tallied 13 points and 6 assists and 6 rebounds. He never forced the issue and always made the right decision. Indeed, this guy is a basketball genius.

    Game 4 Ray tallied 22 points including 3 win or lose 3 pointers in the end game (HE MADE ALL OF THEM).

    Game 5, ray's jumper was off but he made terrific decisions and ended up with 7 assists.

    Game 6 was another very good game. Ray made 2 game swinging 3 pointers after halftime and ended up with 20 points. It should be noted that he also had 3 jumpers go in and out.

    He had 4 good games out of 6. Damn impressive.

    Kevin Garnett was "on fiyah"? He missed countless open shots and got punked by dwight howard. He even embarrassed himself by karate chopping his arm. Garnett had a disgraceful series. Yet he was on fire? What series are you watching?
