I'm thrilled to have Crawford in green,and I think it will only help this young guy. He'll learn from Pierce, and KG, and I bet Rondo will speak with him.
"It's a perfect situation for him," C's guard Jason Terry told Comcast SportsNet. "We have a great veteran group of guys that definitely take the young guys under our wing. He's young. He's athletic. He can shoot. So we welcome the talent."
So does Celtics head coach Doc Rivers.
"He's a scorer," Rivers said. "And losing Barbosa who was our scorer off the bench, we really felt we needed to replace that. We needed another guard in general. We're hoping he can do that. Obviously I'm hoping this is a fresh start for him. He's had his good days and his bad days. We want him to have a lot of good days."
I give Danny credit for replacing Babosa's scoring, and he probably brought in a younger talent that's an upgrade in many peoples eyes. Crawford won't bring the Celtics a banner, but he was a guy they needed. Did the Celtics get everything they needed. No they didn't,but Crawford will be apart of one of the smallest contending teams out there.
