We had him and gave him away, when we could have used him.
He's the same guy now that he was then.
And how he acted with Washington are the reasons why we dumped him.
He got traded because they hated him.
Boston is desperate for young players to develop. And KG, Pierce and Rondo will yell at guys who don't play the right way. Washington's locker room didn't have that. Atlanta's locker room did, but was it worth the effort? For us, no. For the Celtics who are real old and want to push one last time with the old guys, it may be worth taking a flyer. Maybe they hope getting him in Boston will do to Crawford what Denver did for McGee, and New Jersey did for Blatche.
This is the last of the Fab 5 to head out of town (Wall is staying); Young, McGee, Blatche, Crawford.
