I don't know Bert Ramirez of Rappler.com. I don't know his background, nor can I vouch for his credibility. But, boy, I'm sure glad he wrote that the Kevin Love-to-Boston deal is done and Carmelo Anthony is on the Celtics' radar.
Now that's a topic with a lot of meat on the bone.
It's no secret that I've been disappointed with the inconsistent effort of Rajon Rondo. Furthermore, I've never been a fan of Carmelo Anthony. I consider him a one-dimensional player. He’s a gunner. A damn good one, but still a gunner as opposed to a complete player.
Alone, these two players are limited.
But put them with a 25-point, 12-rebound guy like Kevin Love, and you've got something there.
Wyc Grousbeck did say to expect fireworks during the offseason. Maybe, just maybe, this is what he was talking about.
This could work, people. It really could. Rondo would be excited because he'll be playing with legitimate scorers. Carmelo will be playing with a teammate who truly enjoys giving up the ball. Love would just be happy to play on a winning team.
Bert, I hope you’re right.
