its a four year deal worth 25 million. im sick to my stomach. really hate to see him go.
Wow both 4:05pm posts, my bad!
And yeah, it sucks.
I'll never forget how big he was for us in those finals though and forever respect him to death.
big mistake. the celts have a window of 2-3 years here and they missed out on maggette and posey. posey was huge because he could guard lebron and he was very versatile. after pierce, who is gonna guard the 6'7 swingman?
they should have sucked up the luxury tax. they had no problem paying vin baker, scalabrene.
I hope they have someone in mind next year to bring in as a solid free agent.
Wow. That really really sucks to lose Posey. I cant say I didn't see this coming. I didn't expect him to be back so I'm not shocked. Hornets got a real good player.
ill tell you what they have in mind. its labron james in 2010.
And the Hornets just catapulted to championship contenders in the West.
why would lebron come to boston?
every team wants him.
of the 3 which are signed through 2010?
your kidding right? good one
I wouldn't say they catapulted. Posey is a role player not a superstar. They were already really good and they got quite better with a guy like Posey.
I am serious. If and when he did come who would be here? KG and Pierce?
Dam....pissed that my man Posey is gone..
why wouldnt lebron want to play with the green? kg and pp will still be on the team and the celtics will have the cap room. ray allen is gone in two years. every team wants lebron but every team cant fit his contract under the cap.
Yawn; yet another guy wins a championship and takes the money instead of the home town discount to stick around to win another championship. Whatever floats your boat Posey. Thanks for helping us win one this year and enjoy the view from here next year.
Props to World Series MVP Mike Lowell for NOT doing that and staying with the Red Sox instead of holding out for the highest bidder................
it all sounds great. but does he really want to sign a long term to only play with pp and kg for what will most likely be two good years and then they'll start their decline on their careers if they don't do so sooner.
hey i'd love to have lebron here, but you're dreaming.
i wouldn't doubt seeing in LA or NY... bigtime markets. i can't see him signing a long term deal with an old club.
What home town discount? Posey was with the team for ONE YEAR genius, why would he take a 'home town' discount, plus he took a huge pay cut to come here in the first place. You might have also missed it, but he was a vital part of a recent Celtics championship.
I just flagged that above quoted post for being moronic.
lol your not making any sense. using your logic why would lebron want to play in newyork with that pathetic franchise. the celtics have a legit shot at signing him. he will have a good shot at a title with the green while pp and kg are there.
New York might not be so pathetic in 2010.
based on what?
lol. he will have to sign a one or two year deal to come here. Because i don't see him coming here long term when pp and kg are on the tail end of their careers. i don't think he's sign a 1 or 2 year deal. i think he's going to a long term max deal to another team. New York might clear out alot of salary by then if they ever get smart
lol you dont see it but i do. i think danny ainge does to. he wont have to sign a one or two year deal. thats just pure speculation on your part. when lebron comes up for free agency the celtics will have a top level salary slot available to land lebron or another big name free agent. thats a fact. he would be more likely to get a long term deal because like you said pp and kg will be around for two or three after lebron would sign. thats also speculation. kg or pp might re up and have a reduced role. to say the celtics dont have a chance to land him is just silly.
