CELTICS LOSE WHAT COULD BE THEIR LAST PRE-MARBURY GAME
To quote Mister Kevin Garnett...
ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!
Just like a loss to the Clippers is possible. Just like Stephon Marbury in green and white is possible.
The Celtics fell the Clippers 93-91 Wednesday night. Normally that might incite panic, concern, or even notice. But losing a 2 point game with Kevin Garnett playing 0 minutes doesn't bug me much, even though the Celtics easily could have, and probably should been victorious.
The big story is Stephon Marbury. It's looking more and more like he'll be a Celtic. And I for one think it will be a good move. At the same time, he should not be welcomed to Boston with a ticker-tape parade, or even with open arms. The first thing he gets when he walks into the Celtics' locker room is a list of Do's and Don'ts.
Marbury has the talent to be a role player on this team. He also has the ego to be a cancer. And the Celtics have 23 games to figure out which he'll be. If he helps, he can stay. If not, the Celtics can cut him loose. Sound like something another sports team in New England has done in the past. *cough* *cough* Corey Dillon, Rodney Harrison, Randy Moss *cough* *cough*
It really is amazing how much winning can help keep a locker room cool, and how much the whole "You need us more than we need you" attitude can help keep an individual from getting a big head.
