The Celtics continue to get older and better

With the addition of Rasheed Wallace, the Boston Celtics continue to look awesome on paper - but how this actually works on the court is yet to be seen.

Though the Celtics came away from last week’s meeting with the impression that Wallace would need time to make a decision - especially considering that he planned to meet with Representatives of four other teams - they requested expediency. That was due to general manager Danny Ainge’s continued search for free-agent talent, with both the $1.3 veteran’s minimum and $1.9 million biannual exception to spend on further frontcourt help.

Big men and backup small forward help are a priority, which explains the team’s plan to meet with Grant Hill.

Coach Doc Rivers, who lives close to his former Magic forward - now a free agent who played for Phoenix last season - acknowledged yesterday that he will soon meet with Hill.

This is one of those moves that could be seen either as brilliant or the second coming of the Allen Iverson trade. And with the possibility of the Grant Hill signing, I am now convinced that they'll be bringing back Larry Bird. Woo!

And if anyone from the Celtics is reading... might i suggest trading for... CLAP CLAP CLAP RODNEY STUCKEY! CLAP CLAP CLAP. He's use to drunk gingers in the crowd yelling his name from his Eastern Washington days, so he should fit right in at the Garden.
