Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
You can't always believe what you see and hear on tv! Smdh!
I see I'm going to have to start back tweeting more because It looks like people know more about me than I know about myself! #crazy#
But I can tell yall that I do really miss playing and some of yall are crazy as hell on twitter lol! But its all love tho!
But I will be seeing the doctor again in the next couple of days to determine where my wrist is at this point.
So the next statement about "me" publicly will come from "me"! Good night yall!
Jermaine O'Neal is getting blasted from Celtics fans for allegedly seeking a buyout from the Celtics so he can play for the Heat.
He used Twitter last night to dismiss TV reports about his future and update the situation with his ailing wrist.
Nice try, Jermaine. If you really wanted to return to the Celtics, you response should have been this:
The media reports are false. I am not seeking a buyout. My goal is to get healthy enough so I can help my Celtics teammates. I owe it to those guys and the organization.
On Page 2, big man talk goes from Chris Kaman to Chris Johnson.
You may want to hold off on thoughts about the Celtics adding New Orleans center Chris Kaman. Speaking with reporters on Thursday, Hornets GM Dell Demps said the team was not planning to buyout the remainder of his $14 million contract that expires after this season.
"Everything is always a possibility," Demps said, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I mean there's no reason to say I'm certain, 100 percent sure. There's always a possibility. I never want to say never. But our intention is to keep Chris."
If the Hornets do buyout his contract and waive him, they would have to do it by March 23 for Kaman to be eligible for the postseason.
No GM ever comes forward and says he's willing to buyout a player's contract because it takes away all his leverage. Demps is waiting for Kaman's agent to drop his asking price.
If Kaman stays in New Orleans for the remainder of the season, the Celtics may have to turn to Chris Johnson. He was recently released by Portland and played 4 games last season for the Celtics.
