More than likely, what the C’s show tonight in Sacramento will decide what the makeup of the team is for the rest of the season. As Chris Forsberg said on the Celtics Late Night Show last night, if Boston comes out and flops, we will probably see some big trades going down before Thursday. If they come out and show they are a different team, then we will probably still see some kind of a trade, but a much smaller situation that will be an attempt to fill a backup role, instead of shipping Ray out the door.
That's an interesting take.
But I'm not sure there is that much riding on tonight's game.
The Celtics could lose tonight and go 1-3 on this road trip (I don't think we'll go 0-4), and still make a push that starts in March. I agree it doesn't look good for Team Green. But Danny's options don't really change much because of one game.
It's not like Miami is all of a sudden gonna be a viable trading partner with D.Wade offered up for Ray Allen. Conversely, it's not like Danny's gonna dump Ray Allen and anyone else he can for some young bucks.
