It appears that everyone around the league is waiting to see what LeBron will do with his free agency. He has exercised his early termination option in Miami, which means he is technically a free agent. Does anyone think that he’ll really leave Miami?! Some maybe as there is a growing cohort of Cleveland Cavs fans that hope for the prodigal son to return. No, I am not buying it either.
So what is all this LeBron talk doing on Celtics Down Under? Are we all about our boys in green? Shouldn’t we be discussing what Danny has promised to be off season fireworks? Well like him or hate him, LeBron’s decision will have a bearing on what other teams can and can’t do, including our Celtics. Danny Ainge has reportedly been burning the midnight oil to put together a deal for Kevin Love to have a new home at Causeway Street. Like the previous Kevin from Minnesota, he would be a high impact player and if we can keep Rondo and add another piece begin a rebuild properly.
Which brings me to the next piece. Roy Hibbert. Yes the Pacers fans had been critical as they see Roy’s playoff performance as disappointing . I always liked the way he played and think he’d be a good fit with K-Love and Rondo if we can swing that trade.
I mean, check this out:
(I love the rejection on ‘Melo and you know Bostonians love good D.)
The other Pacer that The Celtics are reportedly interested in is Lance Stephenson. I like Lance as well especially things like this
as he reminds me of KG doing whatever it took to get in to the head of the opponent. He is one of those guys that you’d love playing for you, hate ‘em against you.
Slightly unhinged? Maybe.
Let’s hope LeBron makes his intentions clear so we can get on with our rebuild, because two things are definite.
First, LeBron isn’t coming to Boston.
Secondly, our boys in green will have to go through him to get Banner 18.
