Last night was a pretty typical summer night for me: Red Sox on the TV, TweetDeck and my Google reader open on the laptop, and a beer on the table. Don't tell me I don't live it up.
And it's a good thing the Red Sox and Yankees spent forever trying to score runs. If they didn't, I wouldn't have seen both Wojo and Marc Spears tweet the exact same thing about Big Baby (did they coordinate that?). In my excitement when posting the news last night, I promised new details later in the morning. Here's the funny thing: I forgot I'm not actually the guy with the sources… and writing ability… and paycheck that encourages me to pursue things like that.
So Wojo put out the actual article today… and really it's just his tweet with the added background of the teams that were pursuing him, the other signings, and how the C's don't want Marbury.
Sooooo… we're gonna have to wait for more details. The Celtics did make the Shelden Williams signing official… so that's something. And we can toss a new name into the "maybe this guy can back up Rondo" conversation: Jason Williams. He's coming out of retirement, and the Knicks aren't going to sign him after they claimed him off waivers. Remember… this is just a name being thrown out there for discussion.
After the jump, an amusing new Nike commercial featuring Rashoid Lewis, Mo Williams, Andre Iquodala and Kevin Durant.
