… at least the worst, most-vomit inducing story not tied to Rick Pitino in any way. The C's are meeting with Kwame Brown.
“We’re checking out a lot of possibilities – it’s still very early in
the process,” Danny Ainge said today of what is certain to be a broad
casting call for big men, including Shaquille O’Neal.
Ainge said he has not set up a meeting, to this point, with O’Neal.
The 6-11 Brown spent the last two seasons with the Pistons, and in
strictly a backup (13.8 minutes per game) role averaged more rebounds
(3.7) than points (3.3) last season. But his value as a shot blocker
(0.6 career average) may be what the Celtics are looking at now.
I would rather sign two guys who would play in a comically oversized uniform where one sits on top of the other's shoulders for the whole game than sign Kwame Brown.
Has it really come to this? Is this all that's left in the league? Is there no tall guy in the DLeague that can block a shot or two?
