C's Radio play-by-play man Sean Grande was on Mohegan Sun Sports Tonight last night and touched on two hot topics right now.
1: Trading one of the Big 3.
He calls it an old school mentality to trade one of these guys and get younger players and a few draft picks and the NBA doesn't work like that anymore. There are ways, he says, to do it on the fly.
2: The Lockout
A lot of us think a shorter season benefits the C's. It makes sense to say "hey, 50 games instead of 82 games works in the C's favor." But Grande's point is quite the opposite. That 50 game schedule would be filled with 3-games-in-a-row stretches that would kill the C's. He recounted a story of a guy in the last lockout who played 8 games during a 10-day deal.
That's not good news for the Celtics. It's an excellent point no one is really talking about.
So what say you? Would you listen to offers for the Big 3? And are you rooting for a lockout?
