Sam’s Coming Back

sam cassellI don't know if it will be with the Celtics, but Sam Cassell says he's coming back for another season.

I'm playing next year, playing my 16th year," Cassell said without hesitation.  "After winning a championship, it's just so hard to walk away from that.  Certain guys did it, but as I tell the guys, every great movie has a sequel. And since we consider ourselves a great team, we've got to go and repeat."

Sounds like he's expecting to come back to Boston. 

Sam has proven himself to be a shoot-first guy, and he was detrimental enough to the cause that Eddie House ended up getting most of his minutes back. 

Would Sam be different if he goes through a training camp?  Would he be more on board with the rest of the offense?  Is anyone here open to that?

    too Old and Slow for a PG now a days!!!!
    I see Doc saying this to him
    Doc: You see, this profession is filled to the brim with unrealistic motherf*ckers. Motherf*ckers who thought their a$s would age like wine. If you mean it turns to vinegar, it does. If you mean it gets better with age, it don’t.

    sorry sam, i don’t think we need you next year. thanks for coming on board and helping out. you did help us though some tough spots, and every member of the team contributed something. but if we need a backup pg, or a shooting guard, there are probably better options out there. thanks again, and good luck with everything.

    We’ll always have San Antonio, Sam.
    Sam was also instrumental in the first two games of the Cleveland series. We don’t win Game 1 without him, and he really bailed out Rondo in Game 2 after a slow start.
    Take your giant testicles and ride into the sunset on a high, Sammy.
