Fri, 22 Feb 2013|
Gary Tanguay shares his opinion on how the Celtics will get back to be NBA Champions, and it's an idea that not many have had.
The way the Celtics to give back to the championship is Michael and a lot of there's no other way and the numbers to support what say you take a look at the heat all of those players the lottery picks. Mavericks all those players the lottery picks Lakers all lottery picks Morse and I don't really a lot of respect if Celtics pierce Garnett and Allen the Celtics currently have six players that would -- very. Duncan was -- the you know seventh but all of those teams have a core guy from -- Had the week's game throughout Kobe -- they're going to act in cheers and don't get that in. Able that teams can win the championship. We're kidding ourselves people when we say that the Celtics can stay all -- except at the -- spot and rebuild. You can't do wit it's never been done the one exception may be the 2004 Pistons help people feel. People seemed that. Feel when you blow it up it's gonna happen immediately and what you do if you blow it up. And you make a trade that makes your team automatically contenders it doesn't work that way you gotta let these contracts run out. You gotta -- singled back into the lottery and you got to hope you get a star player or the very least you trade that eclectic it would Jeff Green. To get yourself a star player Felger joins me from the sports -- Felger it's the only way it can be done. While do you think I'm asking you hear that quick -- -- back. Is ready and willing and wants to go back and the lottery you think he's going to do that no and that's the problem. Because -- is an owner that loves to win. Believe me the South -- strip it I'm not saying it's because of a great receiver and they kinda hold my future in their hands. These guys wanna win that they make -- they say it's true I mean they do. They make a fortune in their other businesses they don't make any money with the Celtics. Those that wanna win championships. And it would be very tough for them to go to -- season. Those Tony in a row to you know be able it would drive for six with Mike it is the only. Way. They do make money with their franchise maybe not a time not like those habits but it is profitable and we also all the Forbes report of where the value that. -- their valued at bat because the building is full -- there and playoff games than -- after winning championships. But there's still a -- Top eight team -- top fourteen in the in the NBA and if you're one of those teams apparently you can make money insult that's a component. I don't think you can dismiss scary dude -- vital fact I happen to buildings. And -- TV ratings and not being a 700 million dollar franchises Forbes has guided the Matt. Bob is the business of the NBA are -- willing to do that and it all on all fronts I don't think they are willing to do it. It's a reasonable question might put the reason that they're worth that amount of money was because they had a lottery pick in the traded for Ray Allen and Jeff Green which enabled them to get Kevin Garnett and they won a championship. That's why they're worth over 700 million dollars and that's why guys are called -- willing to give them a boatload of money. Just look around. Kevin Durant lottery pick LeBron James lottery pick doesn't go to Miami -- -- not there lottery packed the whiskey lottery pick they'll get lottery pick. It's the only way it worked and here is a very good question Mike. And I hope the answer is yes they are willing to go back to the lottery because when you do the research. It's the only way it's gonna work if they don't do it or get -- just wallow in mediocrity of the second round out. So what they should've done is traded all these guys at the deadline for draft picks. And -- immediately and get to the bottom as quickly as possible that judges act.
