Nate Robinson/Eddie House Swap Nearly Complete

Eddie House knows that his time in Boston has just about run out: “Eddie House, speaking at Celtics practice this afternoon at UCLA, just told the team media that his trade to New York for Nate Robinson is almost complete. The Celtics guard added that he could have remained at the team hotel, but reported for practice in the event that the trade didn’t go through. ‘I wouldn’t say it’s a done deal, but there’s a pretty good chance it’s going through,’ said House’s agent, Mark Bartlestein.’ In apparent support of House’s theory, the New York media entered the locker room in Madison Square Garden tonight to find Robinson’s locker cleared out, save for a jar of vaseline. Robinson had missed a game Tuesday night in Chicago with what management described as the flu. One man who will be particularly happy if House does indeed replace Robinson in that space is Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni, who coached House once before in Phoenix.”

    Nate is instance offense this isnt a bad trade on Bostons part, it will be interesting to see if rando and nate’s personalities clash however

  • boy sanchez

    That’s a nice trade for both teams. D’Antoni knows Eddie House and Boston needs the ‘excitement’ that Nate has.

    Vaseline? Hmmm…..I better hear some jokes soon.

  • SonicProof

    the vaseline is for the 2 knick fans so the screw over doesnt hurt as much.

    I love it for the Celtics Nate is a mini Jamal Crawford.

    boston can kiss tha finals goodbye

    Mikey V is right. They can kiss a championship goodbye. Not the playoffs, we all know the East is weaker than a snitch on the stand.

    Great move for the Knicks. They get a shooter for their fast paced offense. Bad move for the Celts, Now you have two point guards that can’t shoot the ball well. Eddie ran the offense well and knocked down shots. Not sure why everyone thinks Nate will do the same.

    we can kiss the finals goodbye? uh… why?

    I like the Jamal Crawford comparison, clos1881. makes a lot of sense.

    Eddie House is a undersized 2 guard who can’t dribble,can’t run the offense and pretty useless if his J is off.

    1. can eddie house really run an offense well? i love him and he’s a great shooter, but he’s not a real point guard. he’s more like an undersized shooting guard.
    2. nate can’t shoot the ball well? this year he’s shooting 37.5 from 3 and 45 from the field.

  • clos1881

    Also one of the things the Celtics lack right now is energy and passion say what you want about Nate you can’t question those two things about him

  • T-Money

    so that’s boston’s move? nate rob? um, okay.

    @ SonicProof: All the vaseline in the world is not enough for this one. This is going to hurt in the morning!

    6Magazine, what are you talking about? Eddie has never in his career been able to run an offense well. He’s a 2 guard in a point guard’s body. He’s only effective when he plays off the ball so he can catch and shoot. The Celtics still have issues that this trade doesn’t solve, but Nate is clearly an upgrade over Eddie.

  • RunningBrave

    Im going to call Nate the “boobie watcher” cuz he looks like that kid in the movie “Role Models.” You know, the kid who cursed alot and said he was going to make his own comic called “The adventures of the boobie watcher.”

  • sam
