We all know the Celtics are disliked, hated, despised, reviled with a white-hot passion of a thousand suns. But that's because everyone who isn't a C's fan is a neanderthal douche with genital warts.
He's available, probably at the veteran minimum. He's 38, which means he'll only expect to play about 15 minutes a game. And at 38, he'll also fuel the hate-filled "look at how old the Celtics are" jokes. He'll probably be an 8th or 9th man… but he's an 8th or 9th man with a few tricks up his sleeve that can be used in a pinch. He's also got the ability to actually hit an open shot.
I think it all depends if the C's can still work a sign and trade to bring in Marquis Daniels. Moving one or two players would open up a spot. I think Bowen would be a decent insurance policy. And I think winning a title after signing Rasheed Wallace AND Bruce Bowen would cause peoples' heads to explode.
At this point… we might as well. They're going to hate us anyway… might as well give them a reason to hate us.
