Boston Celtics: Who's Better, Kendrick Perkins or Jeff Green and Troy Murphy?

On February 24, Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge would make arguably the most significant move of the season.

Starting center Kendrick Perkins was dealt to the Oklahoma City Thunder, and the dynamic of this season's Celtics team was immediately changed.

In return, the Celtics acquired Thunder starting center Nenad Krstic and starting forward Jeff Green. On March 2, the Celtics also signed free-agent power forward Troy Murphy, with the hopes to add more depth to the injured frontcourt rotation.

Since the acquisition of Jeff Green from the Thunder and Troy Murphy from free agency, the Celtics are undefeated, winning the five games with Green and three with Murphy.

Losing a starting center that was a key piece on a championship team and title contending teams in recent years is a difficult fact to face for some Celtics fans.

The question then becomes: "Was it worth it?"
