Amazingly, Kwame has been in the league for 8 years now. Makes me feel old. I don’t think he ever got over Michael Jordan calling him:
“A FLAMING F******”
People just don’t know how ruthless MJ was, don’t let those Gatorade ads fool you.
But in the NBA, if you are tall, you can hang around forever … and Kwame (who is a free agent) will get a look from the Celtics; here are the details:
As a testament to the Celtics’ willingness to kick the tires of every big man who might help the cause, Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers have set up a meeting with Kwame Brown tomorrow in Orlando.
“We’re checking out a lot of possibilities – it’s still very early in the process,” Danny Ainge said today of what is certain to be a broad casting call for big men, including Shaquille O’Neal
After four NBA teams (Wizards, Lakers, Grizzlies, Pistons), Brown is simply attempting to catch on as an experienced backup.
“He lives pretty close to (the Orlando Summer League), so he’s going to drive down to meet with Danny and Doc,” said agent Mark Bartelstein. “They want to get to know him a little bit.”
I had forgotten Kwame was in the league, but he has been coming off the Pistons’ bench for two years.
His 2010 stats:
3.3 points, 3.7 boards, 0.5 assists in 48 games.
Dwight Howard is shaking in his “Superman” boots.
You know how sensitive Big Baby Davis is around Kevin Garnett; I don’t know how Kwame Brown would last more than two practices.
I am hoping he signs just so I can see that interaction between him and KG.
