The guys from Celtics Talk TV are back the day after the NBA Draft to discuss the Celtics' first round pick, Kelly Olynyk, but more importantly the blockbuster trade that sent both Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets.

The Celtics traded their two leaders to Brooklyn for Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Marshon Brooks, Keith Bogans, and three first-round picks.

Quite a haul when you consider three first rounders, but what about the players involved? Is there anybody worth keeping in the trade if you're the Celtics?

Kyle Draper, A. Sherrod Blakely, and Rich Levine discuss what they think about the return, and use names like Raef LaFrentz and Ricky Davis in their answers . . . uh oh.

What about Rajon Rondo? He's the only one left from the championship group. Does he step up and take on a leadership role once and for all?

"The binkys are all gone. No Doc, no KG, no Paul. It's time to put the big boy pants on now because nobody has your back now. Right now it's all about you, Rondo. This is what you wanted. You wanted this to be your team. He talked about it, they talked about it. Now it's unquestioned, this is his team."

How could that change his attitude? Check out the video for that and more.
