Well, it looks like the Boston Celtics are trying to make an absolutely massive move. Whether or not it will end up happening is a completely different story, but they are at least pursuing it--showing they are taking the season seriously. And for that, they deserve all of our respect.
Some people might be a little confused as to what is being talked about here. Well, you might need to sit down for this one, so grab a chair, sit on the floor, etc. Basically, we don't want you being swept off your feet...
It looks like the team is dead set on trying to grab Anthony Davis before the headline. Yes, the big man with the unibrow from the New Orleans Pelicans. Yes, one of the top big men in the game of basketball. Yes, the guy who would rather play for the Los Angeles Lakers, according to several reports. ESPN is reporting that Danny Ainge wants him in Boston and despite Davis' wishes, it's a very interesting pursuit.
The guy is averaging 29.3 points per game this season with over 13 rebounds per contest. He is the type of player who, frankly, would probably put this Celtics team over the top in the playoffs--assuming they don't tank in the second half.
Would it cost a lot? Yes. Should the Celtics do it? That's their call. But if you could be guaranteed a championship out of it, then why not? The issue in life is no one is guaranteeing them anything, but some help at center (or centre, if you want to be Canadian about it) probably would not be the worst thing in the world either.
As of Wednesday, the Celtics were 31-19 on the season and five games out of first place in the east so yeah, you could say things are going pretty well.
