The pot got a bit richer for the Boston Celtics on Friday.

Brooks averaged 12.6 points in 29.4 minutes his rookie year with 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists. His production tailed off in 2012-13 as he played l...

Pic by RHurstDesigns. Curious to see if Garnett goes back to his #21 (similar to Ray going back to #34 with the Heat) or if he sticks with #5. My guess is he sticks with 5. Really hard to see Paul Pierce in another jersey. I hate the system in the NBA where you have to suck and root for losses in order to rebuild.
