I picture I don't hear it showcase like let's get right to the phone calls I promised these people have been on hold for awhile let's get right to the phone calls Lewis here -- here Pete seal the whole crew is here. Oh Angela from efforts from here we can always start ceremonies load and I shareware and assure a great. What if you washed from last year let's go to Stephen and a first down at today's make shots means -- -- -- -- -- Yes we're ready to broadcast it from outside -- a -- you -- -- shock and then migraine. Are you kidding me umbrellas the only this equipment is all a grounded -- that it might. Not again maybe it's. Well that's okay. I am perplexed about this possible trade com we'll explore what -- know which one though. In the front of the trade -- that we're all disciplinary Nash probably about a bunch of them I don't like any of them I would get this guy. From. Maxis is exactly disorder about. But but -- must -- going on about topical issue. -- probably. No no ticket elderly. It really is in trying to shape this team for the future I think they get a bonus out of this they've already won a championship poker -- that so. One was here when you credit and undoubtedly the but -- Let's stick with Steve in a business when you sit down in the first thing use -- dot decide on doing is. It and remember a lot of people got this wrong. Lot of people said they're going to go 12 ways you're really going with the used it's gonna give us an opportunity to win but it's going to take five years ago have a long window. Or they go with the older guys the veterans the All-Star players but they have and they have a short window. They're doing both. They're winning. With a veteran players in the actual window but the -- that the setup the three contracts they're going it would spend in -- long term but. If you've fallen with any of these guys right now and get away from your original. You are in trouble value -- Don't and is -- solid and I'm just the they don't know I really do. Would you would you fall love with OK as they're expiring array Allen a Paul -- next year KG two years and I can understand that the problem of people haven't I think I do is you take a young player. You develop him he develops into exactly what you want him to be -- now you trade him. Because he may want to beat. A maximum contract guy to news and but he might know they're they're not yet he might not any. -- -- none of these -- -- -- -- godless and I love the rays got maximum. See he's kind of Steve he's not a maximum contract does sort of serious problems started to do us this guy copious -- then try to get -- -- your plans already screwed. You need you need to take him off the books next year. If you're going to replace somebody made one of your three guys. If you're gonna replace him with a maximum -- yeah. What are your. -- Think I don't think that he is necessarily fallen out of favor I think that what you have to do is instrument and he now is it. You never falls in love with the product if you can improve your team and here's the thing that Danny's done it well yeah. He has that thing about it did in which you don't with just me and Danny's dealt with the team which has been great. Danny had a opportunity to win a championship he's done that so now he has a great -- so he has -- operate from a dip remote. I don't know I think the window of opportunity to win again with this team is is a small went. It happened when we can't yet the next two years that you win it would Rondo do you win what what you have now and not have a bitch. -- can you do that. If used that you win out in -- -- leopard you get scared to say for instance will go for the instant solves it with state. A Rondo goes to. Memphis. Rudy Gay and -- Which you've done you've got a point guard not as good as Rondo obviously but you've got a quality point guard. And you got another young enough to -- a play every player yeah. Yeah while a quality players that come back on the backs that because you're page is so big and so. I think -- looking a lot of different scenarios right now you got to keep these things and play and you can't say. Nobody. On this team is beyond being tried. Well -- Are you let that they would like jump on my back -- in the 84 chip chip in at eight but you'll gone. Right now it's time -- -- 86 that. Yeah I. Don't think anybody can beat anybody can be treated Odyssey -- the -- -- the with a -- in the with a rather less than humiliated and I mean a bit. -- -- intimidate you know in the car common practice. This laid out -- to with the new yeah. You know what I I think did I I if anything I think a lot of that is to kind of maybe during. A period where you're ready to negotiate with this kid. To bring him down to earth. I'm not sure I've heard people say well they're they're trying to teach -- less knew that trying to wake him up. I'm not sure any of that's involved I think he he clearly is we're trying to bring this thing down to earth. Because after the first series against Chicago. I think everybody was saying any average triple doubles of that series -- that he came close to averaging a triple double for the whole points. People were saying he was best player on the idea so now. Agents say. As he's looking for the qualifying offer and and that I will have a season. There was. Was it -- guy's fault Kevin Garnett went down -- injury you could win a championship you already won one championship with my guys your point guard. That creates I think. Are a lot of issues and it takes them out of what they want to do and all of this I can understand runner's position. But he's not there yet as a maximum contract guy he might be two years less -- They do we know we don't know that we don't know if there has been discussions we don't know that maybe his agency in Hussein isn't it's a right now he's going to be a max contract guy. They might be sitting out that might be too hard to sign this guy this what he's looking for I think that's how we I try guys out. Only part of it and they have a situation where they have a window in which they can extend that contract. He then would get the qualifying offer which would be a 125%. Off of what he's getting. This year coming up so that would be three point 78 million but he's a restricted free agent at that point. So now you put them out there now the Celtics could match but as -- -- you deal with luxury tax at that point two dollars for every one. But I as a restricted free agent match you don't get a lot of movement. Which restricted free agents and that league teams just don't row. Big money out for restricted today and that they know that their team's going to match wore son's your team's go to sign on the. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It makes itself is simple scenario about -- run -- but the problem is that Rondo has such as loyal. Fan base that. A lot of people absolutely. You know what you -- what you would see a guy like Tony Allen if you don't love Tony -- you hate Tony Allen. Bosnia -- only -- most people or -- or or even -- people who love into one -- they would want -- you know break Brandon winners here -- has -- -- while he's ever seen Nomar Garciaparra huge -- while allowing you capture card quick. To fire boat when they've moved poignant they will -- -- in -- and you realize one thing that teams continue the goal. It it doesn't make -- that was about Boston Celtics on the goal without. Ray Allen without Paul Pierce one day it'll glow while Kevlar -- one day without labor. These the guys that you have to. Look at the product in in look at it from a business standpoint how can you improve this show -- The light of -- -- I think that's what as as the biggest I think that that I is what this is all about in if you look at as being brands and loyalty and all those other things of the law what you gonna have you would have been 1990. Both the Celtics. Although Rudy with labor again though Kevin McHale -- -- regular -- get -- and that was a a good product. But it wasn't the brother of the women's -- -- review based your -- even closer we got rid of Saddam and the bread over there. Guys he talked about though that those those three players are Ray Allen Paul Pierce KG you can't follow level radio right now and next to you can't follow the Paul -- the problem is that not. Really focused and get rid of one of those -- get rid of the young -- because I know what it is developing and about negative feeling and what we went there. You're doing it championship -- what I think they're doing -- they're they're they may be making a decision right now that they're not sure war. That he can beat forget about them max contract -- which you'd have to be in this in this equation but he can't be that leaders of these other guys have become. It they don't feel he's ready to do that right now. And they're looking at available guys who are out there at the end of next you'll like LeBron James like Dwyane Wade still look at the players like that say we have. Opportunity to put ourselves in a position to get one of guys guys or do we hold onto Rondo spin it into one of our three maximum color correct slots. Looking at this way this is this is in put his samples I can't both listeners out there where Ray Allen -- years Kevin Garnett. Can you win the -- and bloke on the gas around UK you win right now wit Kevin Garnett and Paul years and Rhonda. And book the guest room which is a -- there's an area. You would think that you have those big read for Andy you grab what are committing the same problem but it will talk about what the other big by the original look but I'll always hold on the other nobody is senate dealt with it blows on the nightly look at that you look at -- you're not because. What you're looking at right now is is 82 year window of keeping those guys we talked about Ziegler Burton Kevin Garnett Paul. And route -- macedonians -- -- there was no window that we're gonna get wrote these -- they came close -- and would not a kid goes to KKK well what they came close but they didn't in -- -- they did they did so when you didn't do that you commit to keep those guys until they retire but the Celtics sit right now the -- the contract -- set up. Is that we are committed to keeping these guys we commit to keeping reality for one more year. Mean that the -- -- appears in two more years it -- creatively we're prepared right now I'd keep that aren't at three more years after that. -- there's nothing right now said Boras said the two before they would have done it that's when I heard. I heard somebody asked this question on one of the shows the the other day. And I'm not sure they knew the answer to it with Ray Allen the person call them and obviously loved Ray Allen -- why don't they just go to -- He's not worth going beyond next year he's not worth twenty million dollars. But what they offer him ten or twelve right. Well that would defeat their purpose now if you can get away -- that under the rules of the NBA that would makes sense because Ray Kelly coming back playing for one more year or even two years. At ten million dollars a year. That would crew that would be value -- she can still contribute as a shooter. But if you do that. You blow that hires like -- up all of that money and now you're not able to replace Ray Allen. With a maximum contract what I LeBron James or Dwyane Wade or Chris can I got those that your favorite dirt. New -- you've won your championship demanded that all right you have you have what what what you're doing you'll use that created this Big Three to do what. Two women who had championship so you won a championship now you with a probably once again this year a championship if Kevin Garnett doesn't go down. So now you're looking at okay now were all -- in this thing. There's -- a little bit older -- week. They have another opportunity right now if we and it's you and you know the quality players to. And you move Rondo and and you just blow everything up as you would as you looking to do in three years of -- I think that's one. Use these guys accountant on bring in max contract guy. -- I know they get jobs you know when the leafs on there right now about -- -- if you lose Rondo in new lingerie and he's able throw -- -- -- -- got -- -- -- we can rebuild -- What do you don't bring in the two years now I'll be hoping -- Maxwell act but I don't Rondo that I don't have done by the -- down to mark the three guys you have right now right now wait Kevin Garnett. All the years Ray Allen. And would you do you bring in -- Steve Nash older player right now Khaled giveaway here at the Ian -- -- one year. Or you bring it to my way a one year deal that GO older players -- group and those other collated and where -- where are you the year after an athlete that Rleal that is as a hold of the page is that look at it because now. If you get one -- one year. Valued you can replace -- you have an opportunity ousted right what you have an opportunity. To replace -- with -- -- -- myself in their possession when asked if that's what you're saying we you don't know it's like Chicago when they lost Michael Jordan. It was not clear laws cap rule they have all this space nobody wanted to go to nobody wanted it. So -- huge -- so I'll -- which room and asked them point that you not directed you don't know but but at least you give -- sale. An opportunity to be in the running if you -- the running to get eight -- bosh or a LeBron James. That is as was Columbia problem also that the without. The thing up because you also talking about bringing the max contract guy yen and it is this what we did to clear space for you Paul Pierce has one year left. We bring you winning elected as we we work we might take it we DePaul they're still doing bring in another Mexico like I've been correct option. Is that -- for guys and I want him jumping on a team right now we're this year but there's no guarantee to bring somebody else in with an -- that's that's -- adamant that I don't say that the counting on. Somebody want to -- on so are you know. Indeed if you say for instance that you have eight Chris Chris Bosh or LeBron James economies next year and play -- Kevin Garnett Paul -- and win a championship a lot guys that think it as -- -- -- -- -- right now but it is posse of well look out publicly that's look leave don't think it. We typically as they get that we got we got Jack or what you want. And -- while -- out -- that don't want -- one -- right now you you are doing an audition that he is the perfect fans this brother but it. Everything up not up we get the man. I you bring it is not going to be for a year it's going to be a long term -- to look around is gonna -- Paul's gonna happen this year. -- what -- can do Ellen's gonna be gone in -- here for eight years or so they'll brilliantly and as the agent yeah you're going to recycle and recycle the three year period the Shaq thing is. Perfect it in and again we don't know what he's going to be like coming this year there's two years ago at but it is done they played pretty well this past year at Phoenix but. You but -- -- it's an expiring contract so they have a -- and give them some ball down low. For one year and it's an expiring contracts are next due to convince LeBron we blog which tracks money now. And pick Chris archer brings somebody -- yeah you're gonna play with. -- they need to sign the broad. And that's going to help them signed the -- one it's gonna it's satisfying and instantly and he's got a big body you this year. And then next year it's given a maximum contract money you know -- if LeBron wants put it this way if LeBron wants to lead. And he's committed the state in the east. What is the best case scenario for him to win. Stay right here now well welcome -- -- the -- Go to Boston but but that's what Cleveland's that is why apple is making this well but that but in Wallace's contract expires but he's not a maximum contract -- you combined combined two contracts and the other -- that's how they were able to make different. As those -- -- you're signed LeBron James long term because you can bring a guy like Chris Bosh long term correct okay you know bring in an incident come on in here. Poli -- formal year KG the cute in the cynical OK then what domestically -- exhaust and Pamela Harriman. Any of these maximum contract guys that you sign next year you're -- them move all the time right they're not. They're in the peak. They're not go for -- and his teammates aren't short term. Like Chris Bosh covet the to them -- anyway I want -- -- -- slightly -- recycle Paul Pierce put it in -- to replace him. And that you're going to be able to recycle replace a Kevin Garnett with. Maximum well well well look it this way. You've handled it bought the book like churches still -- yeah. As great as great as great as Paul Lee is and I think it's all all of the absence of a basis altered a lot volume all the red -- just as hard to replace as a Kevin Garnett would be. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- How well does -- go back to default because I do bodily -- matches but like the with -- spammers will want and encounters yet. Says like I died with here it showcase line here are some -- -- a car I'm like. Hey guys they don't want. Paris Robert Carlyle I love Rondo. I love Toronto. Yet but I would do that trade and Memphis and the second. -- -- -- -- seats to quality players. Right one that's you know. Not as good here I think it makes the Celtics a much better player because eight. And you got -- coming up the -- better than anything this topic to bring up the bench now in my opinion. While that's good that the group that has a -- it was can be yeah. In any company -- and it obviously not as good as -- As -- as Rondo but I mean. OK so -- it peace around it would great players. Instead of just got to bring that up I'm wondering what do you think Rondo how forty mature as a player and I'm not talking about off the court. As apply here. If he's spent the first couple years of his career in Memphis versus playing alongside Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett. And -- well we we saw run though the -- -- first -- an average unemployment way it was ugly team did the variety before bright and what did he show you showed you some promise that was a pretty good player. But it was I have. -- Canada one night to the next right. But you did that thing. At the very yeah when they put the ball and run those Iranians last year. If you think that they could win that you damage you would run would you they keep that way is going to be the point partly a question you would like. Now Euro was that going hey. Don't trade this gap in the privacy you have to look at all case scenarios that it. I I have the love run it was a play. It does so many things he's with the most unique -- morris' -- so I brought my unless I'm with you and I let them barrels going to get much matter but -- to improve your team yeah it is to think that you called to -- right now. -- -- I guess I get. One I got a great player and I get one budget to other really really good players it's around that would get -- get it. Ray Allen the pop up well now that -- You know what Mike who we talk about this value all the time of the way the patriots deal with would value. It really years and I know some people -- going to -- -- and they -- all all you -- what is matching -- dollars a whatever. I really do believe that that's the best way you build the team I think the Red Sox have done a phenomenal job with that. In building -- value that they that they recognized for position versus position and as much as I thought. They should've given Jason Varitek more money I'll give the credit to the Red Sox. They got him he's provided them with now live at home runs today another one last night I mean if a bomb. My biggest -- basic break point I was some might just wanted to -- on about Rondo. And now I I don't -- -- nobody knows this but. It is a great point I mean it Rondo what's it been spent -- part of mr. -- -- is what he -- same type of player. Audit every Canadian having Kevin guy like Kevin Garnett Paul. Course you got a great course they as he dragged. This is with those guys every -- those guys have already developed great work ethics every single I want to celebrate look at Scalabrine. I mean you don't think his game got better -- you because you're going -- -- practice on odd about out there yeah Allen on the Daily Mail on top of that -- you'd you'd think about that -- developed the if you talk about lead to -- it's good well here's the thing about it is that when you clearly have done it all views and Ray Allen. I don't care how good the past if if they don't make the -- -- Eagles -- not so. Hope is that what you can be the best penetrated the -- you make the best take in the world -- -- the damages that the Obama as it. For string NBA and baseball star salary structure and you see a -- -- obviously you know Jon Lester. Note that first year deal is never the crazy one okay after the rookie it's never crazy and in the MBA yeah tell me that after rookie contract the technical writing to a match. Why is that thing about it though it did the best thing about was that it brought what you know the best thing about him being chased it. You already when you came in this -- lucky you were initially -- -- later. You'll come and in Macon economic at least it BA changed today and meet you get into the system which has not what you want what you had -- -- Both wars you'll make a jump to like 89 the next year that the peace could act and I feel good I was not yeah. Iran does actually on the the new system. And it's been with us for awhile if in which it's all slaughtered and that's why he's got disqualifying -- for the coming up because they did give them that extra year that. Yeah if you if you grew up in the NBA you can go to be a -- right what that Ricky -- if -- -- good enough to do it like. Look LeBron James he could not be a Maxwell. Yup he waved as he could not be a Mac -- Chris Bosh -- the good -- be a Maxwell but let's look at the number two player. Although average alone produces negative itself from average used to stop. He's drinking already been drinking already home like. Police -- is that all look like they have handcuffs on you. Is is that you know something for enjoyment or is that actually a legal thing got a legal problem. Yes the difference because you that in baseball off their first couple years -- -- big deal it doesn't matter how good you'll you know going to get their money but did it you might declare that after so I ask you should be -- to get -- and that's. That's why don't understand why Ricky to -- if you're actually I got another step hesitant to make them to -- So I think in all but that's meant what meets the -- as a different stomach but at intermission. LeBron James because the maximum contract reportedly here he got -- -- because he's one of the top five plus employers and by. Does not want to talk template -- why he's not a big Macs -- And that's. But he and his agent may be looking for that because there aren't because they're going to be in a position when their contract expires. And they know that the Celtics have a maximum contract I can tell -- I can tell you did not doing in the way and I and that may be what the. A lot of this is about. They want to pocket the easiest fifty bucks you've ever make. -- play cards with Pete now that's just I don't -- very good at this verified -- Grossman's bargain outlet bargain -- that is. Why the week it starts tonight at seven logon to WTI dot com slash wanted to listen and cast your ballot. For this week's best -- quick break right back the phone calls at six point 7779. 0850. Remember if you wanted to down your earlier today and you've got a ticket for the YU words you can head over. To the patriots Hall of -- it's absolutely phenomenal museum located right next door. Your ticket. Will be worth half price ticket. For the the great New England Patriots Hall of -- museum and by the way if he can't do it today kids down come down all weekend they're gonna what you used that way ticket. To get a 50% off ticket right up until Sunday. Six point 77790850. -- I've -- here at showcase going to like this -- will be a lot of women here tonight and effect I think it's what 730 when it's. -- -- -- -- -- -- Are that the -- -- let's the point whether. Yeah yeah have a good tablet should deal with that is it's. She major she told me use them like it with the grey -- and the image that. -- the first time I've ever drink. Let -- We just went for weeks ago. -- to start on the back -- Upon that a phone calls -- a -- Chile's president -- and all. It go. Up and congress. Should vote while Rondo. -- It -- the point got that -- a boycott won't support division NB. Now about what looked at -- I think -- one I think it is one -- via via like knowledgeable about it's not like college -- but here's the difference you can get by India BA in what a championship. If you've got to LeBron James. Or you've got to Kobe -- you battle -- if you've got other players you know well look at look at it look at this way -- all the armament -- -- -- -- explain something you understand this. How what the -- to the lakers have a great point guard this year Derek Fisher. -- okay okay. So it's -- make you you just answered your question you don't have to have a great point god. You've got you would love to have some I like that you don't have to have a great point -- -- talked about you absolutely and the way and let's go back to last year when the Celtics want to. Rondo was shaky want to -- to play. Some of the. -- -- -- Whether plant in China wherever it it looked like flat. Yeah I agree with you -- don't Kevin Garnett now looking at so you did Kevin Garnett out of the equation. And I would agree with you that Rondo had to play well for them to win 11 that had their. One of the problems call one of the problems that the Celtics will have you they've made a trade where Rondo. Is exactly the way you feel we just talked about that because you love Rhonda and you look if you're not by yourself. There are people who love Rondo in thinks he can do no wrong and I think that's when the problem. It's apparently okay I okay whatever I expect that -- out like business already have made it -- -- haven't could put up triple doubles every night and and administrative interest bank by it would be okay were coming up -- actually my -- -- -- -- point god then. That would be overly neat note that. I think drop what what calmly with -- he would. He was stretched to -- a little bit because he's lived. Well well well our how would I would say that because you think of it this way. If it -- Orlando. Rondo was less affected in the Orlando would they were running in the weight room he he he write it he was sensational against Chicago. While was he less effective that gets relent when it now you tell me that double while with and that's that. I think. I mean I don't know but I -- that it's so bad it a little literally started bothering airport Peter O'Malley is out of. -- But he just came up a series which he would absolutely great. It in the series if you think about this way he should have dominated. Mean he Rafer Alston more in that series they need be it against rose against Chicago right. I also think we believe got a look at -- -- is talk about one thing of like getting through the regular season and how good players are. I think when your trying to evaluate your team you're trying to evaluate who you have to get by. To win the whole thing in the lakers did an interesting thing after they lost the Boston last year -- think that they had to ramp up their defense. And -- find a way of getting Trevor a reason. Involved in it because he was to get complacent defects so they they kind of figured out how do we beat Boston they didn't have to play Boston. To actually -- thing but that's. But that's how they formulated their team if you get beat by Orlando. And you'll look at Cleveland is the other power right now if you Danny -- aren't you looking at the next couple years and say -- -- going to have to beat. To get to the championship and with a whole -- Yes but right now week we are -- championship contender -- -- and one veteran. Big -- out a couple of little piece is I think your favorite to win the championship net this. But they went -- they injected them. One is yet to figure out what you gonna do a big baby. Do you gotta -- you got to have a bigger. Bigger supporting cast their bits and of course issue what you are some -- await you Leo when bad as the problem you have. With some lip as good as big baby was there's not -- coming up the bits and as one of the problems you have because PJ brown. Had some at some -- James Posey at some -- And those are hard to fit their guys who could've been different positions big baby that is basically one or. Sometimes maybe one and a half position he played the Senate and the palpable. But James Posey could play how many different positions out there and guard guys he will guard Kobe Bryant you -- Rashid Wallace you guard LeBron James so he gave them different options where in last year your options became a lot more limited without cable -- net. Let you know -- the last year. They swung and missed the before they get -- you ground for the get a big man at the bit right this year they because they had success the PJ -- they -- well we don't get somebody else. Joe Smith thing and was talking about -- I would they'll report says it was. I agree it was devastating to the Andy's -- certainly disappointing and devastating might be too strong but certainly with a well well well at a fact well -- out devastating compare the two way apple Mikey Mikey while -- you double that -- except. Except I don't know how you properly epic most of us when Mike -- got here we expect -- a lot. -- see that message that you completely got a well out did you okay you play that way a lot of did you like you and I might well you're editing. I mean I didn't but -- just write new of that system he was implying he did he didn't announces that a man is Acura what is radical out at the deadline try to find abatement. Did get a big -- this offseason. Tell by the deadline you know what you've got you made illegal jumping around him this would do well that's certainly good -- are to do you get 11 is because you one's salary cap keeps you down. You know the the options right now you're trying to keep open that there. I think that's a little while looking around to make some moves and watch it when that update the top thing is there a lot of big enough that that people letting go back up this the -- with a ground at something like that does those with that limited player that. And help you in certain situations he but. I thought Obama or starter outlook for exactly that -- -- -- that's it exactly that a guy you know somebody that can -- -- If -- about a deadly Israelis are free agent maybe ability -- the job done that deadline you can make -- -- the -- but. -- a shot at the deadline in the last two years they -- well with with PGA but they swung in this boy. And George regularly and have been. George. Hello bloom. Is and read George Bradley bags stolen -- would not right aren't black. -- -- -- -- -- Stated that they're not at a trade. Rondo. Is Pete did he came -- last -- -- Baptist sports center and that there's -- texting is they're going to let Rondo though. I also -- the whole interview yesterday with the Tennessee Kellyanne and he also says an RBI in his press conference that there you know and not looking to trade anybody but nobody is on trade -- I don't think he said that he wasn't looking to trade -- I think that's what he said any also said. That they weren't going to tradable way because he was late for a couple of games that would not be reason tradable.
