Celtics Busy During Trade Deadline

It is always exciting and fun to watch and observe the transfer market of a sports club. Sports, which has evolved into an industry, have invited many investors to put their money on a club. The club then will compete with each other to have the best players. The backstabbing, or the stealing of a player, is very common in the transfer market of a sport. It is always exciting to speculate whether a club will make a move on which player, or a player will choose which club to be his or her club now. A transfer market can be a betting opportunity, as well, to bet on whether the player will move or not, just like in tether betting sites.

Boston Celtics Transfer Market Day

In the world of basketball, all of the big clubs in the NBA (National Basketball Association) are always targeting the transfer market. They will observe and aim for the player that they want. The Boston Celtics were always said to be the busiest team during the NBA (National Basketball Association) offseason, especially in the recent season, the 2020-2021 season. However, no one really knows and understands just how quick and fast they would get the transfer market rolling on their organization that much needed a shake up.

In less than a day (24 hours) after their loss to the Brooklyn Nets (in the first round), their front office GM, Danny Ainge, resigned. He will step down from his front office duties inside the organization of Bolton Celtic, and in his place, Brad Stevens will drop his clipboard inside the sidelines and will move on up to fill up the vacant position of the Basketball Operations President.

After that incident, around two weeks after that, there was another notable move that took place. This remarks Brad Stevens' first move under his new title as the President of Basketball Operations for Boston Celtics, which was a trade that sent the starting point guard Kemba Walker from the club Boston Celtics to Oklahoma City. The trade was in exchange for Moses Brown, and also involves former starting center to the club itself, Al Horford.

The Move of Kemba Walker

Kemba, who was in the club since 2019, has been moved to another club, Oklahoma City.

The Boston Celtics have lost more than they used to, coming off a frustrating 2018-2019 season. Boston Celtic then would go on to lose their franchise centerpieces, Al Horford, as well as Kyrie Irving, to a free agent (which means no transfer fee at all). This would lead to a new chance, opening a door to a new chapter, so they can hire a new player with a huge and massive salary. Right after Kemba Walker and the Boston Celtics showed interest to each other at the beginning of free agency, Kemba Walker then officially joined the Boston Celtics in 2019, exactly on July 6th, 2019. Kemba Walker has joined through a sign and trade deal with the Charlotte Hornets with the worth of $141 million for over four years. Kemba Walker then chose to wear the No. 8, as his usual No. 15 has been retired by the Boston Celtics in honor of Tom Heinsohn.

Kemba Walker, having joined the Boston Celtics, made his Celtics debut on October 23, 2019 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Kemba Walker put up 12 points from his 18 shot attempts. Kemba Walker amazingly did that from the field in 34 minutes of play during the 107-93 loss. On November 27, Kemba Walker finally managed to score a season-high 39 points from a 121-110 win, over the Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately, that season-high would however be eclipsed on December 11, when Kemba Walker scored 44 points in 122-117 loss to the Indiana Pacers. On January 16, 2020, Kemba Walker would luckily post a 40-point, as well as 11-assist for double-double in a match with the score of 128-123 loss to the Milwaukee basketball club, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Then, in January 2020, Kemba Walker finally recorded his first head-to-head win against LeBron James, right after having begun his career 0-28 against him. He finally posted 20 points, 4 rebounds, 7 assists, and a steal. Kemba Walker also helped the Boston Celtics come away with a 139-107 blowout victory over their longtime rivals the Los Angeles Lakers. Just three days after that, Kemba Walker was named the National Basketball Association (NBA) all-star four consecutive times, being selected as an Eastern Conference starter.

Unfortunately after the 2020 NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics confirmed that Kemba received a stem cell injection in his left knee. Kemba Walker was placed on a 12-week strengthening program. He was sidelined for the start of the 2020-21 NBA season.

Boston Hall of Fame: Will They Get Back?

Now get back to the transfer, even though there are some who believe only a handful more of transactions will be made, there are also others who are under the impression that this Boston Celtics team could look completely different from what it did in 2020-21. Many believe that the Boston Celtics would get their glory back after Kemba Walker is gone and hire some new players. Many of their legends are included in the NBA Hall of Fame. Boston Celtic legends such as Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn, Larry Bird, Robert Parish, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, as well as Kevin Garnett have amazed fans with their athletic exploits, as well as won the NBA championship with the Boston Celtics.

The Boston Celtics are regarded as one of the most successful basketball teams in NBA history. The Celtics is tied with the Lakers for most NBA championships won with 17 and currently hold the record for the most recorded wins of any NBA team.
