DATELINE: NO Free Lunch for the Celtics
Celtics fans are hemorrhaging over likelihood that Dwight Howard will liven up the parquet at the Garden. Can it be that the free agency of the NBA will cost Celtic fans their souls?
Others see it as bringing in the serpent to force Brad Stevens to take a bite of the sour apple of Sodom.
This Superman pretender has become more anathema among Green Team fans than an excommunicated priest at a boys’ club meeting.
Yet, we hold out the greatest of hope for a cure for cancer and a cure for Dwight Howard. Perhaps the elixir of life restored will come from the charms of Brad Stevens.
The Celtics coach is gaining a reputation of taking the tanked careers of desperate superstar failures and giving them a cape to wear out of the phone booth.
There is magic in the banners hanging among the Garden rafters.
Dwight Howard has met Kryptonite at every stop and worn out his welcome faster than door-to-door salesman.
After Rajon Rondo, what could be worse for the Celtics? How about signing Dwight and Rondo? What might work better than to have the Prodigal Son return with a couple of superstars to re-live the thrilling season of 2007?
Durant, Howard, and Rondo, would be more cosmic than to see the planets align for the return of Planet X.
We are rooting for Danny Ainge to sign Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, and Rajon Rondo. We love mad love unconditionally.
