Sam I Am… a Celtic?

Sam I Am CassellBoston looks a step closer to the puzzle now, with Sam Cassell waived by the Los Angeles Clippers. The Celtics will have to wait for Cassell to clear waivers on Monday, and theoretically could go to any team he wants… but in an interview with Stephen A. Smith, Cassell pretty much said that he was going to go to Boston. He did state that he explored a few other options, but that Boston’s his destination of choice.

Added with the addition of P.J. Brown to the veteran’s minimum of $1.2 million, and now (supposedly) Cassell, Boston really have placed themselves a slight cut above Detroit now.

Sam I Am veritably gushed over the promise of going to a now-deeper Boston Celtics squad. He mouthed platitudes over Cleveland and Detroit, but one could actually ‘hear’ Cassell’s smile.

It would be interesting to hear what Rajon Rondo has to say…

Sam I Am… a Celtic?

I think Sam has to be realistic and understand that he’s not going to be playing 30 minutes a night or launching 15+ shots per game. Until he falters, this is Rondo’s team and he desreves his shot. This allows Eddie House to move over to SG when Ray Ray needs a spell and provides experienced, quality back up for Rashon. Don’t look for PJ Brown to play too many minutes, but he will teach Leon Powe and Glenn Davis an awful lot on the practice court. Sam Cassell is the sort of insurance policy this teams needs to go all the way. He’ll be happy enough with short minutes if he gets a ring out of it.

If Boston doesn’t get a title in the next two seasons, they’re gonna pay for it in maybe another 10 years anyway ;~(

What I want to know is what does Rondo say to Cassell – and vice versa – the first time Sam I Am’s in the locker room… after that hit he put on Rajon.
