We’re willing to convince ourselves of anything around here. Lately, it’s the possibility that Stephon Marbury could help. Put on the Green Glasses and all we see is his “talent”. Every once in a while, it takes an outsider… like Ball Don’t Lie’s Kelly Dwyer in this week’s Power Rankings… to really put what we’re considering into perspective.
3. Boston Celtics — Pleased to be adding a turnover-prone point man who hasn’t played significant minutes in 24 months and specializes in making 41 percent of his 19-footers here.
You know, when you put it that way Kelly, it sounds like a pretty dumb idea. I’m with the growing chorus of Celtics fans asking for more Gabe Pruitt before we do anything rash. Let’s see if we’re still singing the same tune now that Gabe will more time over the next couple of games.
However, if Gabe isn’t the answer… there will be plenty of names out there that we can consider now that teams are cutting guys this week to avoid guaranteed contracts. Miami waived Shaun Livingston today… and Phoenix cut Dee Brown. I’m not suggesting those guys are answers to our problems… but they are point guards who were cut today.
