FanHouse sat down with C's legend Sam Jones for a wide ranging inteview. Check it out here… but here's the one part that really stood out.
Sam Jones: "No. It's a new regime, new owners,
new management. People ask me why I never go back. I tell them, `I
don't go places where I'm not invited to go.' I won't push myself on
anyone. It doesn't bother me at all. You work for someone, and when
you're finished, you're finished.''
between the Celtics and guys like you who made the franchise what it is
no connection between the old and the new. There is no follow up on
history. If you don't want to be bothered, then I don't want to be
bothered, either. I have my peace of mind."
Danny… I know you've got bigger things to worry about than the feelings of aging for Celtics. But reaching out to Sam is the right thing to do. Part of being a Celtic and a fan of the Celtics is the history. He's a big part of that history. Let's find a way to bring him back.
