Drawing parallels between the 2007 Kevin Garnett trade and 2016 Celtics rumors

The Celtics have been involved in a number of rumors this summer. What can be learned from the reporting of the 2007 Kevin Garnett trade saga?

After weeks of speculation prior to and after the 2007 NBA Draft, the rumors had fizzled in Boston. The focus was on other matters like the Tim Donaghy betting scandal, Michael Wilbon’s comments about Boston being a racist city, and Doc Rivers’ thoughts on fans overrating Al Jefferson.

Monday Musings: The 4th of July

The NBA free agency madness continues today as we celebrate America's independence day. The Timberwolves's new front office made their first splash in the free agency market yesterday with the signing of Cole Aldrich, a journeyman center who has been able to carve out a role for himself in the league through his hard work, defense, and rebounding skills.
