    Celtics fans claim he was saying Boston had no interest in trading for Kyrie back in 2017

    Please tell me what the Rockets won with Harden besides a lot of games and 1 WCF and 2 WCSF... For all of Morey's genius we've never won an NBA Champion. We can't keep rolling out or running back. Now is the time to blow it up. James isn't going to win with no D Kyrie and James. GOH!!

    Well, I guess Harden can do one of those.

    The nets would instantly be favorites to win if Harden, KD, and kyrie became a trio

    If they are really interested, they’ll make Jaylen Brown the centerpiece of their offer along with multiple first-round picks.

    Neither Kyrie nor James play enough D to win an NBA title. So when the last 5 minutes happen, the will put James and Kyrie in a PnR and it's a wrap. No D no Title!

    Exactly. Danny Ainge can either offer Jaylen Brown and picks or he can watch one of his Atlantic Division rivals (Toronto, Brooklyn or Philadelphia) land Harden. Ainge needs to either **** or get off the pot if he wants the Celtics to be more than just bridesmaids every season.

    If it happens, I'll gladly bet their team wins a title. funny kyrie can't win a title, yet he already has one.

    Murphy lately has been the new wet blanket killing deals. He’s ok but he’s not much of a new breaker he’s very inconsistent. We used to have Steve bulpett as ainge’s mouthpiece but he left the herald

    starting an offer with Kemba and spare parts is so insulting I can’t believe someone would have the balls to even try such a thing

    like, I’d rather u called me, farted on the phone, and hung up than to actually try and discuss Kemba and picks for Harden with me

    Just a few years ago I remember having a conversation with my friend that all Houston sports teams are on the up and up and are contenders. Houston was a sports superstar mainstay. JJ Watt, Watson, Harden, CP3, Springer, Correa, Altuve, Verlander, Cole, Bregman were thriving. Now the city will be lucky to have 3 left and that trio will be on one team which for the foreseeable future will be associated with scandal. Wtf happened to Houston sports.

    i am firmly in the camp that the Celtics should be interested. That’s a very good deal and you don’t give in to Morey or harden

    Has any Celtics interest in Harden been reported by anybody credible from Boston’s side?

    HUH?.

    One of the saddest moments in Rockets history was when Ralph Sampson was traded for Sleepy Floyd and Joe Barry Carroll.

    Harden and Westbrook are nothing compared to Ralph and Hakeem.

    Trade them for a bag of chips. Ask for 2 cups of salsa sauce, that would make it even.
