(Source) – Love’s sighting in Boston over the weekend has undoubtedly spawned a lot of intrigue among hoops denizens. One source, for example, has said that the Boston deal is “pretty much done,” and that the Celtics really intend to pair off Love and Celtics captain Rajon Rondo with New York’s Carmelo Anthony, an impending free agent himself, to form a lethal triumvirate that would rival the Heat’s own Big Three. The source, an insider at RealGM.com, said, “The Love deal is pretty much done. I think the fact that Kevin Love is so out and about in Boston is something that Danny wants out there so he can show someone like Melo that he means business. The Melo thing is the one that is on the hush. Melo is the primary target. They need a scorer from the wing position. Cs need to get Love first in order to work one (with) Melo. That’s why Kevin Love is in town, he knows he is headed to Boston. Love is a done deal, the focus now is Melo. He was the primary target. Love opting in on his final year allows the Cs to sign Melo to a long-term deal first. Then work on a team-friendly deal with Rondo and then take care of Kevin. Also, could Tyson Chandler be dealt to Boston?” The same source revealed that the Boston trip is, in fact, something that was planned with Rondo. “Hearing Rondo and Love talked 11 days ago regarding this trip, on the phone, and that Rondo and him have maintained regular correspondence for the past 27 days,” the source said.
Bam, baby! Kevin Love and Carmelo? Boston is about to become Lockdown Defense City! Danny Ainge just doing the damn thing again: try and tank the team, get fucked in the lottery, turn that into two All Stars, win the NBA Finals a few months later. That’s the Celtic Special. I mean we all knew Love was a done deal by Sunday, but Melo now? Hot damn. Hate to be trying to focus on an NBA Championship in Miami while shaking in my shoes just thinking about having to play Boston next year. Blooooooodbath!
PS – Poor Doc Rivers. “I don’t want to rebuild. Get me out of Boston.” One year later: he’s dealing with Donald Sterling blowback, meanwhile the Celts are already reloaded and emptying clips at the rest of the league.
