Brooklyn 2, Boston 0!

Management of both the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics have agreed to a blockbuster trade Thursday evening that would send future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.

The trade come at a stiff price for the Nets, who will send Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace, Tornike Shengelia, Reggie Evans, Keith Bogans and three first-round picks scattered over the next five years to Boston. Brooklyn also receives guard Jason Terry in addition to Garnett and Pierce.

A starting five of Garnett, Pierce, Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson¬†would be an unstoppable lineup in the Eastern Conference. It would be rookie coach (and former rival of Pierce & Garnett) Jason Kidd’s job to meld the stars into a team that could immediately challenge the two-time defending champion- the Miami Heat.

The trade ends one of the most successful eras in Celtics history and puts the franchise in full-blown rebuild mode. Not only does it allow the Celtics to clear cap space, it gives the franchise a handful of draft picks.

Boston fans & New York fans have been rivals since the NBA began it seems so I’m curious to see how MSG will react when Garnett & Pierce walk out to the court during game time. Feel the same? Comment below.
