I’m sure you all know by now that Ricky Davis was traded to the Heat today. How did this happen? In the process, the Heat got rid of Antoine Walker. Did the TWolves still think that Walker was in his prime? I hate to bring a glimpse of reality to the TWolves, but Ricky Davis still has game. He actually made my list of potential sleeper picks in my fantasy draft. He was bound to be the go-to guy in Mini this season, probably average around 20 points a game. Now the Heat have what I like to call All-Star security. With Shaq and Wade constantly being in injury problem, the Heat now have a guy that can take on a leadership role when those two are out. Beyond that, they’ll have Davis coming on the floor instead of Antoine Walker. This is a total win for the Heat! As for the TWolves, what the hell were you guys thinking?
On a side note, doesn’t Ricky Davis look a lot like Ludacris?
On another side note, Kevin McHale is probably the worst GM I’ve ever seen!!

It’s a done deal, folks! Our man Kevin Garnett is on his way to Beantown. Personally, I couldn’t be more excited to have the Celtics back as a powerhouse ( even though I cheer for a different East team ). Regardless, this type of blockbuster trade is what the NBA needed right now. I haven’t heard Tim Donaghy’s name in 2 days! I apologize for even bringing it up. Now, onto the show, let’s look into the deal. The T-Wolves get a lot of great potential, especially in Al Jefferson. That guy’s phenomenal and is not even fully developed yet. At the end of the day, he’s no KG. As for the Celtics, they’re the true winners in this trade, in my opinion of course. Firstly, I can’t get over the offensive power the Celtics have. After many blog debates (including here on Clutch 3), I’ve come to this conclusion as to why these guys will be so success. The Big 3 consists of one dominant post player (KG) and two perimeter players that can drive the lane (Allen and Pierce). The primary option will be to post up KG. With his skills, he will always require a double team. When teams used to do that to KG, they might leave Ricky Davis or Troy Hudson open. Now it’s a lot riskier. What team would ever think about leaving Ray Allen open? You’d have to be nuts. Okay, even if they cover Allen, on the other side is Paul Pierce! The Celtics have become a defensive nightmare for the opposition. The best part about the Big 3 are the egos. They aren’t young anymore and they are going to be focused on winning. I guarantee any of the Big 3 will give up the ball if the other is open, even though it might not paten their stats. Also, these guys aren’t old either. People who say KG is out of his prime are crazy. He’s still has years to go. I really back Danny Ainge’s move in the front offices and send him my sincere KUDOS!

It was reported by the boys at TwinCities that Kevin Garnett has decided he wants to stay in Mini. He doesn’t mind playing with the younger guys. Has this guy lost his mind? The serious trade talks were probably the best thing that ever happened to him. I would have turned religious and prayed that one of the rumours actually played out. Seriously, could you imagine KG and Steve Nash? How can you deny that combo a championship, especially with Barbosa and all the other boys there too. Oh well. I hope KG doesn’t actually think he can win a championship in Mini. The T-Wolves are a long way away from even being a contender, especially in the West. KG might be one of the best players of all time to retire without a championship, along with Karl Malone,etc. If I were him, I would be DEMANDING a trade. Screw the good ties with the city, it’s time to make an icon out of himself in another city. I’m sure there isn’t one team in the league that wouldn’t want that face hanging on a banner outside their arena. Plus, who doesn’t love this Adidas commercial…
