Jeff Green, formerly of the Oklahoma City Thunder and a near career-ending heart condition, has been traded by the Boston Celtics to the Memphis Grizzlies. The latest piece of the once-promising Celtics core of Green, Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger and Avery Bradley is gone. Why the Celtics have blown it up, we can’t really guess.
Much like the jealous bear-wifey of Grizzly Adams in the beloved Family Guy sketch, the Boston Celtics have been spurned by yet another piece of their future.
I’d like to think it’s because Avery Bradley is a dreadful daily fantasy pick and Jared Sullinger is more likely to become a Sports Meme archetype than an NBA Hall of Famer.
Whatever the reason, the race is on between the Celtics and the New York Knicks to get that number one lottery pick. At least there’s that.
