Ok, maybe you've heard enough about this trade that happened but didn't really happen, but there's an interesting tidbit this morning from CSNNE's Donny Marshall. Celtics analyst, and ex-UConn and NBA star, Donny Marshall said O.J. Mayo, who was coming to Boston in the Allen trade (the proposal was Mayo and a draft choice for Allen), scuttled things by making it clear Boston held no appeal to him.
"On the Memphis side, O.J. Mayo was the guy who pretty much said, 'It really doesn't interest me to be a Boston Celtic,' " Marshall told Carolyn Manno on Wednesday night's SportsNet Central. "I think what he was told was, 'Think about the banners. Think about the history of this team,the legacy.' And O.J. Mayo basically said, 'I don't care about banners.'
"And that's how the players think today. It's not about the banners; it's about 'Where can I win? Where can I get paid the most?' "
