    The only reason I don't want to trade for Pierce is cuz I don't want to be on the other end of a "Artest shuts down Pierce during the playoffs" playoff game.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Well if we are it would have to be during the finals. I'd risk that. RA can't take the stress of the finals.
    If you get to thinkin’ you’re a person of some influence, try orderin’ somebody else’s dog around..

    I never liked Paul Pierce because he lit us up, but I'd change my tune in a heartbeat if he came to the team.

    I wonder if Ainge was just being sarcastic or if that means he even considered such a deal.

    I have heard for the longest time that Wally was a no go, but Doug in OH asked me for a link last night and I couldnt find one.

    Here it is, Doug

    As for the boston rumor, I may be the only one here who doesnt like PP, but I want nothing to do with that guy
    Thanks - not what I heard... but I was apparantly WRONG... so very very wrong

    I dont think the Celtics have any shot at the playoff this year, so you'd need not worry about that.

    If it was just a two team trade Artest would go to Boston who play in the eastern conference.

    celtics/pacers always meet in the first round far from the finals. would boston dare build a team around artest, not likley.
    1 - 2, Tinsley's coming for you.
    3 - 4, You're not a team no more.
    5 - 6, He's gonna plead the 5th.
    7 - 8, He's gonna stay out late.

    I've thought a three team trade where we send Ron and Foster to Golden State, GS sends Murphy and Pietrus to Boston, and we get Pierce would be a good deal all around.

    I checked that trade out a couple days ago, I don't really remember, but I think it takes some throw ins though.

    DW and LB both like Pierce...a lot. Tried to wrangle him from Boston the summer after the ECFs using Ron. I'd do back flips if we got Pierce.

    I'd take Pierce before I took wally, and it's not about talent.
