Gilbert Arenas Gives His Thoughts on the KG Trade August 2, 2007Posted by Marquis Chapman in Basketball, NBA, Sports.
On his blog Agent Zero, Gilbert Arenas gives his thoughts on the KG trade and the Boston Celtics. This trade definately has Gilbert and the Eastern Conference a little nervous.
It’s going to be …
Boston’s going to be a lot better. They’re just one more team that jumps out from the bottom to the top now with him, Ray Allen and P2. You got to be weary about that when your team’s in the East because the Celtics can easily jump to the top three teams in the conference now that they have him.
The rest of us in the Eastern Conference got to get on our grind now.
We ain’t gonna be afraid, but at the end of the day, they got some fire power on their team now. They’re not like the Boston of the last couple years where we could look at the season series and go, “OK this is going to be 4-0 … or they might sneak one win.” This is a team that can beat you.
This is good for the franchise in Boston. You wanted them to get the No.1 or No.2 pick to get some young talent in there, but the trades they made to get Allen and Garnett brings them back to the old days when it was the Lakers and Boston. It’s good for the franchise and good for the league that Boston is going to be one of the key teams again in the Eastern Conference.
