I miss Delonte. I mean… this team is fun… but it would be so much more fun with him around.
I know… I know… we had to give him up to get Ray… and I’d make that move again if there was a do-over.
But I still miss the guy.
Nothing really new to report on Sam Cassell. Donald Sterling is still cheap:
Yesterday, however, there was no news, other than the emergence of one NBA truism: Sterling and his money are not easily parted. The owner actually said Monday night that he figured if Cassell were to leave the team, then the Clippers’ financial obligation to him would go with the player. Doesn’t work that way, Donald.
Back to the C’s… and tonight’s game. The Celtics are trying to build off the momentum of 2 wins in a row out west… but I’m afraid this game is going to be sloppy. Its the first home game in 2 weeks. Some of these guys have been a way for way too long… and we’re coming back from a lot of time on the west coast. The Cavs are on the back end of a back-to-back… with a completely made-over team.
What are the odds that this game is anything besides an ugly festival of turnovers and missed shots? You might see rebounding numbers in the 60’s.
