WEEI is reporting that KG has arrived in Boston and that Paul Pierce is on his way to Boston to attend the press conference. Ray Allen also will be there according to WEEI. There is a press conference scheduled for 5:30 pm this afternoon. Reports are that he will wear #5 for the Celtics since his #21 was retired for Bill Sharman.
There was a lot of speculation because Pierce wasn't more vocal about the trade for Ray Allen, but there is no question this time. Pierce has to be elated and his coming to Boston proves this. Even though I was skeptical of the trade to begin with, I am getting excited about the possibilities. Now we need to sign a veteran center and point guard and we will be all set. 63 days till training camp and I can't wait!!
I call them GAP line (Garnett, Allen, Pierce) for filling out the gap in Celtics history and team between years 1986 (death of Len Bias and last NBA championship) and 2007 (18 games in a row loosing streak).
