In theory it was a great idea….All of the chatter about Boston’s interest in Chris Paul is a moot point because the All-Star point guard will not sign a long-term contract extension with the Celtics, according to a person close to the situation. Boston would love to acquire Paul for a package built around point guard Rajon Rondo, and has been seeking a third trading partner to sweeten an offer to New Orleans. But Paul’s reluctance to commit to Boston long-term should quickly put an end to the scenario.
Two points to make about this story: (1) Chris Paul is signing with the New York Knicks. This is as done of a deal as it gets my friends. The Knicks are going to be awesome. Paul, Stoudemire, and ‘Melo, why the hell would he not want to playthere? Plus it’s in New York. There is no other situation in the NBA that appealing. (2) The average age of the Celtics is probably like 53. Why would he go there? The Celtics are kidding themselves if they think they are going to be signing anyone. They are a couple years away from being in the cellar while they rebuild. Sorry, sometimes the truth hurts.
