doesn’t have a bunch of money. I’m not seeking out teams with more

I've said it before and I will say it again; bring back Starbury. He did all the right things last season (except for the playing well part) and he's saying all the right things this summer. He wants to show us and the rest of the NBA he's still got something left.
As we told you last week on Sports Tonight the Celtics would love to
get Rasheed Wallace to come off the bench this year. As we grow closer
to the post July 1st NBA free agent signing period the chances of
Rasheed wearing green this coming season are very good.
He is good friends with Kevin Garnett and he has a great interest in coming here.
My gut tells me Rasheed Wallace will be come a Celtic soon.

Anyone else annoyed with all the media coverage given the Knicks? We're supposed to get excited every time the Knicks express interest in a free agent? It's been nearly ten years since the Knicks have won 40 games in a season. They are awful and no where near title contention.
Memo to the Globe and Herald, give your readers news when it happens. Both papers/web sites waited until today to reveal what Danny Ainge said about BBD, Eddie House and free agency in yesterday morning's conference call. We gave it to you yesterday afternoon. It may not be earth-shattering news, but it's news. Share it with your readers, please.
