(Broken wings, get it? Get it??? By the way, I’ve been using a lot of Tupac lately.)
Paul Pierce is like the rest of us. He thinks the Celtics need one more piece and, specifically, a wing. (Boston Globe)
“I think we’re right there at top,” he said. “I think we’re one of the top four or five teams in all of basketball. I still like we need another piece. I think we could use another wingman off the bench after losing Tony Allen. I think he was real valuable what he brought in the playoffs so for the most part of I love our team. I think we’re better now that we were in June. But also I still think we need another piece if we’re going to win it all and not just get there.”
Sorry guys, but Pierce is absolutely right: Von Wafer as the only backup two just isn’t going to cut it. The Celtics still need someone else, even if it’s just as insurance in case Wafer decides to be a pain in Doc Rivers’s ass. Pause. If Wafer falters and/or Marquis Daniels either disappears like last season or gets injured (like he does every year), the C’s are absolutely going to need another reliable wing off the bench.
Just to let you know, Rudy Fernandez is still out there. I’m just saying.
