THIS JUST IN..Extraterrestrial Sighting in Boston
No that is not an Alien..that is ecstatic ex Clipper Sam Cassell on his way to top contender Boston where he’ll join former teammates Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and the new look Celtics.
Cassell who was not too happy about playing for a team with no hopes of making the playoffs in the packed Western Conference and demanded to be released, seems to have finally gotten his wish. The move is not official but what was a well circulating rumor is pretty close to being a reality once all the technicalities are cleared up.
The 38 year old “crafty veteran” who already has two NBA championship rings (from his days long long ago with the Rockets) has a great chance of getting a third one. Cassell adds among other things veteran leadership, clutch shooting, and a high basketball IQ to a Celtics team who while having the best record in the league were lacking at the PG spot with their youngster Rajon Rondo as their floor general.
Whether Cassell moves into the starting lineup (which i think is very likely) or he comes off the bench he should be an effective new weapon for the already high powered Celtics attack. What will also be beneficial is the ‘KNOWLEDGE’ he’ll provide Rondo along with the intagibles that he brings to the game. What remains to be seen is whether a three headed monster, an alien, and some used parts are enough to be NBA champs? That answer will be forthcoming.
