I’m having a very hard time getting over the loss of P.J. Brown (Don’t you just love how he’s muscling Ben Wallace in this photo?). Maybe it’s because Patrick O’Bryant sucks. Maybe it’s because the Celtics aren’t the clear-cut, most dominant team in the NBA. And it will only hurt to see PJ in the crowd at tonight’s game.
“It’d be great to get him back, but I just don’t think he’s coming back,” Rivers said. “He knows the invitation is always open, but I just think he’s moved on.
“He works out every day, but he works out because his family works out, you know? He’s not working out because he’s coming back to play.”
Celtics president Danny Ainge added: “Just a class act. A class man.”
But when asked if thought Brown would play again, Ainge simply said, “No.’
I’ll just live in denial until the March deadline (new roster additions signed after this date are not allowed to play in the playoffs) rolls around.
Chris Paul is still questionable. The Boston Globe is reporting Paul has a sprained foot, while the rest of world thinks it’s a strained groin. (Is Marc Spears the most overrate sports journalist in this town?) According to the Times-Picayune, Morris Peterson is the one with the sprained foot.
“I’ve always been leery of tights and leotards, but I have the body to flaunt it, so why not.”
That’s KG on his new “Quest for G” commercials. Here’s some behind the scenes footage.
