Well so much for that pipe dream....

This signing should make the Warriors the favorites next year.

Celtics might look to trade for Cousins and/or revisit the Butler trade with the bulls.

Durant chooses Warriors on reported 2-year, $54.3M deal.
Detnews

ESPN reported that it was a two-year deal for $54.3 million, with a player option for the second year.

The only boston team I like and follow since I was a kid when we moved here.

Dad's job was in a 7 or 8 story building right next to the old Boston Garden.
The Celtic's front / executive offices were also in the same building.
Saturdays, I would take a bus and train to North Station and meet him for lunch at the restaurant right there on Causeway St.

After lunch, we would go up to dad's company and many times I would see Cousy, Heinsohn, Sam and KC Jones, and Havlicek, etc. They were always friendly to me as a kid of 10/11 to young teen. So that's why.

Plus we loved the Celtics announcer who most everyone else hated, the legendary Johnny Most....."Havlicek Stole The Ball", "Bird Steals The Pass over to DJ Lays It Up And In".

sounds like a dream for a kid.

For some reason I thought you hated all of the Boston teams...maybe it's just the Red Sox?

It was great. I did get a few of their autographs, but damn know what happened to them.

I do hate the redsox, and fans, and patriots, and fans, and bruins and their ultimate goons. and all their dick blowing talk radio and tv crew ball lickers.

So much easier living amongst them before 2004...

It isn't easy living here and growing up amongst so many MassHoles!!!

I wear my Tigers home and away caps, and Gordie Howe shirt with pride!!
