Since it seemed pretty clear from the get-go that the C's were going to hire from the assistant ranks, this is about a positive an outcome as you could have hoped for:
- Positive relationship with existing stars
- Former player
- African American
- Good reputation around the league
- No history...
Every time I convince friends that the NBA is really good and that they should watch along, they're always driven away by the officiating. Even when I don't say anything, they ask some version of 'are they always this bad?'
As someone who hates the trend of superstars forcing their way out of small markets to play with their buddies, this news is fantastic and ultimately good for the NBA long-term.
As a Celtics fan, I look forward to cursing his name in the years to come.
Guest, I have a big favor to ask you. We've been working very hard to establish ourselves on social media. If you like/follow our pages it would be a HUGE help to us.
