SO long KG  :'(

I really saw it all along as they could not afford to keep him around after 2008.  What were they going to do, sign him to an even bigger contract?  They at least got something out of it...including getting back their pick that McHale stupidly gave up in the Wally deal.  Jefferson, McCants, Foye, Brewer and Blount make up an interesting 5...they need a center in a huge way though if  they are ever going to compete.  They have all of the young talent to remind me of the Bulls of a few years ago.  Lets hope it pans out

I also hope the Celtics win it all next year, KG on the team makes me an instant Celtics fan.  They should at least be the favorites in the East

That's how I've been feeling too.  I've always been a big fan of KG - with he and Nash being my favorite players - and I hope he gets his shot while in Boston.  Like I said earlier, its kind of nice to see a stories franchise like the Celtics become relevant again.  It will be interesting to see what other free agents they can put around their new "big 3".  It should be an interesting season.  Go Celtics!

It sounds like the Celtics are now exploring the possibility of bringing Reggie Miller out of retirement.  He is said to be interested, and it would be more in an off the bench/15 minutes per game type of role.  There also continues to be news of Jermaine O'Neal wanting to go to the Lakers, or in some cases, the Nets.

i have to wonder if the reggie miller thing isn't sort of related to the KG deal.  he told them he wasn't coming, so they got ray allen and begged some more.  i wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't some sort of converstation like "ok, I'll come, but you aint done yet.  how about some more veterans?".

Speaking of veterans, the Heat just signed Penny Hardaway.  Way to make that roster younger, Heat.  It's not like you weren't old enough.

i saw that the mavs are on the short list of places allan houston was interested in going to.  i hope they don't sign him.  houston has already made a ton of cash with very little to show for it.

I read some of that Allan Houston news the other day as well.  Are teams so desperate for a shot in the arm (or maybe just shooting) that they have to keep trying to drag old guys out of retirement?  (Reggie Miller, Allan Houston, etc.)

I think it was just last offseason when he was found in a crashed up SUV in a drunken stupor, masturbating to porn playing on the car's DVD player.

All things considered, I'd have to agree with Neal's assessment.

I'll be watching ... and I'll be hating myself in the morning for staying up to watch the entire game.

USA has looked good so far.  Hopefully they play with the same passion and intensity in China.

Yeah, they've looked great ... and though I think he's a ****, Kobe's defensive smothering of the other team's best guard has been inspiring.
