The real Stephen A. Smith (as opposed to the imposter from the other night) claims that sources have told him that Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen have a good chance of returning to Boston next season. Most of the previous talk has centered around Ray Allen potentially taking his talents to South Beach to play with the Miami Heat, but Stephen A. thinks otherwise.

I’m still skeptical. “General consensus” is based on nothing besides what everyone thinks will happen. And the source doesn’t tell you anything besides the scary possibility. ...
The Heat are currently on the top of the NBA universe, but the frightening thing for the rest of the NBA is that they could be getting significantly better over the offseason.

When Ray joined the Celtics, it marked the first time since Dee Brown pumped up his Reeboks that Boston was excited about a Celtic’s players shoes. During his time with the C’s Ray dazzled fans with his amazing shooting skills and incredible Air Jordans. Celtics green when mixed with classic Jordan silhouettes was...
For most people in sports journalism not named Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith or Craig James, "don't become the story" is usually an important goal and one that's often adhered to.

OJ Mayo has been linked to the Celtics for years, and as the
Celtics build depth in the frontcourt, it is important for the C’s to add a
capable high scoring guard to the roster that could come off the bench or start
in the event of an injury. Mayo fits that description as a combo guard, a 6-4 guard with solid handle and the ability
to run the offense for stretches when Rondo...
