Ryan Hollins clears waivers, will sign with Boston Celtics; Chris Wilcox being waived to clear roster spot
The Boston Celtics have acquired what they were looking for — somebody really tall who can run without falling over his feet. Whether Ryan Hollins actually helps the Celtics besides providing six fouls per game remains to be seen, but at the very least, Doc Rivers now has two active centers on his roster, doubling the previous total. Take a bow, Mr. Stiemsma. You’re no longer alone.
Here are some reader comments from Cavs: The Blog upon Hollins’ release from the Cleveland Cavaliers:
Matt P: “I am getting drunk tonight im so happy.”
Kevin R: “The over/under on the amount of illegal ball screens just dropped from 1,000 per game to a more manageable number of 2. … On the plus side, turnovers per game should now plummet.”
P: “Matt P, Ryan Hollins just tried to block your comment… and whiffed. He is now out of position to grab your rebound comment if you have one.”
CrankyM: “I hate watching Hollins play so much…and yet i am inexplicably sad that he is gone.”
Isaac: “I think coach Scott wanted this for a LONNNNNNGGGG time”
So, yeah, the Ryan Hollins era seems promising.
