Well, he's been called the prize of the buyout season… which basically means you're the prettiest one still at the bar when the lights go on. But the Celtics are in that bar… they've had a few drinks…it's 2 a.m… and there's Troy Murphy sitting there all by himself.
So swallow your pride, C's. Walk on over the most attractive leftover and spit your best game… because it's you and Miami competing for this prize.
If I'm Murphy, I'm going to Boston. I'm not gonna sit there and watch the Heat lose at home to the Knicks and think "wow, there's a great chance to win." And this guy can help. He'll score and he'll grab a few boards. He won't wow anyone… but he'll be ok.
Let's just hope we don't regret it in the morning.
