So Charlotte bought out Bo Diaw, and like every other rejected big man, the Celtics are going to have to consider him.
The one thing we have to keep in mind with all of these shlubs is that its much like rummaging through a junk yard to fix your old beat up clunker. You are just looking for a part that is good enough to get a few more miles out of that junker until you can afford a better car.
In Diaw you have a guy who could help offensively but probably not in many other aspects of the game. He is certainly no answer to the rebounding issue and his fat ass isn't going to be filling any lanes on the break. He would be a strictly half-court guy who can score in the post, even if he has to be coaxed into doing so.
The bigger question is whether he would mentally commit to the Kevin Garnett mindset or would he withdraw and just play on his own little island? Of all the options mentioned so far, Diaw has the most raw basketball talent. If the Celtics are truly opening up more than one roster spot, then Diaw could fill a need on the offensive end. Maybe. The next guy the Celtics get would have to be as pure a rebounder as possible at this point of the season. I would still hope for a couple of bigger guys who are better rebounders before Diaw, but I suppose we could do worse at this point.
And that, my friends, is the most ringing endorsement any of these scrap heap guys is probably going to get.
