Big trade before the deadline. . .in basketball?

While the trade deadline for MLB has just passed (4:00 PM E.S.T,)  the big news of the day is in the NBA and Kevin Garnett’s escape from Minnesota.  Mired on a losing team in a loser city, KG is now King of Green, becoming a boston Celtic this afternoon in the biggest trade for a single player in NBA history.  It took a total of FIVE players AND two first round draft picks to pry Garnett from the Timberwolves.  Many people see this as Minnesota G.M. Kevin McHale’s final move as a Celtic.  As we all know, McHale and Bird and Ainge won three rings together as Celtic’s, and now McHale has traded his franchise player to the franchise that gave him a career as well as his good buddy Danny Ainge.  Ainge is currently the G.M. of the Celtics.
