Should We Be Concerned About This?

I've already linked to the Herald piece about Danny's attempt at making a deal… but I glossed over this quote from Paul Pierce:

“I think it would help us. You don’t want to burn out me and Ray (Allen) coming down the stretch to where we’re having to play heavy minutes, especially going into the playoffs."

Part of me feels like this is nothing.  But then I realize that I've never heard him, or many other players for that matter, offer up the possibility of getting burned out without some prodding.

So… should I be concerned that Paul is suddenly talking about that possibility?

    That being said… John, what trade do you see as an option?

  • I don’t see any trades as an option, really. I just don’t think we have anything to offer up that will get us what we need.
    The only option I see is the Celtics picking up someone that is waived in the next week or so. Teams that couldn’t deal today will start cutting costs and buying guys out. Then the Celtics will have some options. They might have to cut a player if they want to add a big AND a PG… but so be it. Patrick O’Bryant isn’t playing at all anyway….so he can go.

    I know hes a rookie, but giving Walker some tick could really alleviate the problem of too many minutes if they cant make a deal. I mean, how bad could it be if he is out there with 4 vets? I say give it a shot.

    wow DRJ, you’re so smart.
    Pierce is speaking the truth ;-), he would love some help off the bench, its really too bad the deal for Raja Bell never come to fruition, because the bench is weak and we can be homers all we want put Gabe Pruitt, Brian Scalabrine, 2 d league material rookies is straight crap.
