Rasheed agrees to deal with Celtics
 
Quote:

The Boston Celtics have reached an agreement with Rasheed Wallace, according to a source.

Wallace is expected to get a two-year deal using the mid-level exception (expected to be about $5.6 million to $5.8 million).

Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce, owner Wyc Grousbeck, coach Doc Rivers, and president Danny Ainge met with Wallace last week. Wallace turned down overtures from Orlando and San Antonio to commit to Boston.

Paper dream team.

Bmats7 07-05-2009 09:24 PM

KG, Wallace, Perkins, Davis?

that is definitely one of the deepest set of bigs i've seen in a while in this league.

Someguy again 07-05-2009 09:26 PM

maybe if they did this five years ago.

right now my dream team would be a bunch of young guns and some good vets.

the thing is look at that starting line up pierce, allen, rosco, and kg= all on the wrong side of 30.

i just don't see them doing it winning the title.


if they don't this year they definitely aren't next year or the year after

the thing is they need to bring in some young guns that can learn from these old guys and if they don't well once they lose garnett,pierce,allen,and rasheed they better hope there are some good fa's out there that year or else they won't make the po's.

Itd be paper if the Celtics core didnt win one already. This is the real deal.

Sheeds going to come off the bench though. No way theyre going to break up the best defensive frontcourt in the league and piss off Perkins. Sheed will still get his minutes and wont be tired come playoff time. And he'll be motivated playing with one of his best friends.

Maybe the best defensive 3 frontcourt players combined in the last (fill in the blank) years? I'm really excited for next year. There will be guns blazing with all of the top teams.

Wow...Boston, Cleveland & LA have all bettered themselves. :dead:

'trane 07-05-2009 10:07 PM

i figured it would be the spurs. great pickup for boston. that gives them some real range to an already dominant frontcourt on the inside.

Belsius 07-05-2009 10:14 PM

The first LA vs Boston game is going to be sick. I cant wait to see Artest going at it.

Ball Don't Lie 07-05-2009 10:17 PM

Man matchups galore. Kobe and Ron vs Ray and PP, KG vs Pau, Sheed/Perk vs Odom/Bynum.

Over under on Bosh scoring 40 pts total in the 4 games vs the Celtics? Hes dreading the days he has to play Boston now. Instead of scoring 12 ppg(with 8 of those against Perk), its now gone down to like 6 ppg.

Kuzzy 07-05-2009 10:20 PM

Hedo or no hedo, Boston will fuck the shit out of us.

Acie 07-05-2009 10:25 PM

Remember when people here incessantly bashed Wallace when there was rumour he would retire before he would play for less than 8 million per season? :giggle:

Got to love those unsubstantiated rumours and how fired up people get over them.

Ball Don't Lie 07-05-2009 10:51 PM

People are dumb. Sheeds still got it. And in a lesser role hes only going to look better. Just play D and hit 3s my man. BALL DONT LIE.

Under for sure. I think he'll be lucky to get even one point..:dead:

Mr4thQuarter 07-06-2009 12:02 AM

Magic fans are getting frustrated. :reporter:

Rasheed just disrespected us as a team, since he preferred less money and a bench role in Boston, instead of starting along Dwight and getting MLE with no income tax...

Maybe Hedo could pull a Hedo and back out of the Toronto deal
lol

CripwalkinK 07-06-2009 01:16 AM

Good signing for Boston. I got a feeling Perkins is gonna come off the bench and cry about it to the press.

logicz 07-06-2009 02:35 AM

woow .. all these players signing with playoff contender teams are making big moves their pratically stack with a bunch of vets wanting their rings lol.:yeah:
