I mean, they added a good player to their roster... but one of those two guys is going to get short shrift. You ever hang out with a group of people and one of them is wayyy too much like you, in looks and personality? It grates on you. You don't want them there. Or when you're driving on the highway and someone else is going the exact same speed as you?

Barbosa's going to hate being on this team because I don't think he's as good as Terry and the Celtics already have a breakneck-speed small guard Rondo who's going to be on the floor most of the time. Barbosa should have signed with someone that could use him.

Basically this. A good comparison would be to have Ray Allen and Reggie Miller on the same team.

Celtics don't really get much better. He winds up being more of an insurance signing if they lose JT, Rondo, or Bradley. He'll be good for what, 10-14 minutes a game at best?

Hardly an impact player given the circumstances.
