I love this. First of all, you guys are awesome.  Lots of great questions from so many of you.  I will try to go back and take on some of the more traditional questions (hint: lots of Rondo, Avery Bradley, and "who's the next star that we'll target?" questions).  But tonight I wanted to answer some of the best creative questions. Let's get this first one out of the way right away. ed schultzz When are we trading Rondo?

Ainge believes Avery Bradley will play a key part in Boston's quest of banner 18

I don't disagree with Ainge, and it seems like Danny pulled off a solid re-signing. When you see Hayward and Parsons being over paid this summer. You have to give Ainge some kudos there. But why can't he say that about Rondo? Because Rondo will is an upcoming free agent in 2015? It's been years since Ainge has used banner 18 and Rondo in the same sentence. Call me what you will about my beef with Ainge. I like the General Manager, but not his practices as a Gm.

Avery Bradley deal should pay off

But the decision to lock him up may not have been simply about pure numbers — even though their validity is supported by the market.The Celts and their restricted free agent agreed on a four-year pact that will net him a total of $32 million, and, according to league sources, it is a straight-up deal that will begin in the low $7 million range and rise to nearly $9 million by the 2017-18 season. There are no player options or incentives.

Rapid reaction: C's re-sign Avery Bradley

Some thoughts and analysis after Avery Bradley agreed to re-sign with the Boston Celtics on a four-year, $32 million contract: • TOP PRIORITY SECURED: Without the necessary cap space to pursue big-name free agents, and likely needing other dominoes to fall before they can navigate the trade route, the Celtics moved quick to lock up the one player they could spend to secure. Boston made Bradley a priority when free agency opened Tuesday and, little more than 24 hours later, have their starting shooting guard in place for four more seasons.
