James Posey: Head (And Wallet) Trumped Heart

Not that I blame him… because I would have done the same thing if I was James Posey.  But PoZ says leaving Boston was very hard to do.

From a personal and professional standpoint, leaving the Celtics was one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to do,” Posey said yesterday from his home in Houston. “But at the end of the day it was a business decision, and there were no hard feelings. I hope this is something that works out for both of us. It was a tough business decision, and that’s all I can say. At the end of the day, both sides were happy with what took place, and you have to move on. This was business with no hard feelings. 

This is probably the last we'll hear (or at least write) about Posey.  It's a nice little finish to the whole Posey stint in Boston.  We'll always appreciate you buddy.  And bolting Boston made it possible to bring back House and Allen.  There's also more talk of the C's being interested in Devean George… but Danny isn't letting on

"I'm not going to comment on any guys," Ainge said yesterday of available free agents. "I'm not chasing anybody down. I feel we have a solid team now and I'm going to take some time off."

If you're interested in watching the Celtics get their "Best Team" ESPY from Jack Bauer and a pug wearing a plunging neckline… here ya go.

Elsewhere, the Denvers Nuggets appear to be in full fire-sale mode.  They're willing to trade anyone, even Allen Iverson and his expring $21 million contract

The Gerald Green domination of games that don't matter continues.

And LeBron's shoes have a message for him

    I didn’t think I was interested in the ESPY thing until I saw Derek Fisher’s face when Ray said “Another win in LA.” That’s my new screen saver.

  • That’s easily the best part… just ahead of KG’s muppet-like open-mouth reaction.

    That is hilarious…I think the Derek Fisher face was the funniest part of the whole night. I laughed out loud when they cut to him with his sour, no sense of humor look. What a moron.

    And thus ends the Posey era. Damn it was short but sweet. Reminds me of the hottest girl I ever dated. She was hot, really wild, and fun to be with. It lasted less than a year, and though I was bummed out, I was still happy that I was able to experience that even if just for a short time. Yup, this is just like that time, except instead of crazy sex and wild partying this is clutch 3s and lock-down defense. OK, nevermind, this is nothing like that.
    Good luck anyway Pose!
