Boston will reportedly get center Nenad Krstic and forward Jeff Green from Oklahoma in exchange for Perkins and forward Nate Robinson.
Smart move, dumb move or dumbest move ever?
Some die-hard Celts fans are dismayed.
I'm so disappointed in you, Danny Ainge. Smh. #Celtics
Others say this is just how the game works.
5 Years ago Danny Ainge was an idiot. One trade later hes a genius. One more trade later hes an idiot.
A gentle reminder to all the armchair coaches out there.
Many fans worry that losing Perkins will disrupt the core of the Celtics lineup.
Celtics messing up the rotation though. What happened to the starting 5 that NEVER lost a playoff series?
Still others say the loss isn't as great as it's being made out to be. (For the uninitiated, Bill Russell was a legendary center and 12-time All-Star who led the Celtics to glory in the 1960s.)
People here in Boston acting like the Celtics have parted ways with Bill Russell or something. Folks, it's Kendrick Freaking Perkins.
We'll give comedian Chris Rock the final word.
A while ago I needed change for a 5. I asked Danny Ainge, and he traded me my $5 bill for his 10 singles. Clearly nothing has changed.
