Two straight blow out losses to the Celtics means? I don’t know what that means but apparently it meant something to the big players on the Nets. I mean Nets Daily has this news about Carter going to the Cavs in exchange for Wally Sczerbiak and his expiring contract, a check on the trade possibilities on the REAL GM TRADE CHECKER shows that it is possible for us to move Carter to Cleveland.

It would be a straight on swap, Cavs get Carter a strong shooting guard, who is still in his prime although slowly fading, but still delivering, and Nets get Sczerbiak and also gets rid of Carter and his big contract for one that is expiring this season, strengthening the push for a big 2010.

But the thing is, Is this even worth it? yes we know we lost two games by a combined total of 53 points, but so what? What did you actually expect from us? The Raptors have had higher expectations than us and now they’re rock bottom in the Atlantic? What gives?

Aren’t we giving out judgement way too fast? I know the trade deadline is like a month away from now, but come on, after a start that was against all odds, you’re going to dismantle a team that gave us that much promise based on two games? Two freaking games against the defending assholes? This is just crazy, and it shows a lack of faith on the team, stop thinking about 2010, Carter’s contract expires on 2011, so by 2010, we would still have enough cap space to sign either You Know Who, or You Know What. What are they even trying? to sign the entire free agent class?
