Celtics Desperate to Match Cavaliers' Backcourt

The Stephon Marbury to Boston Rumors reek of only one thing if you ask me...desperation. Boston knows that, as currently constructed, they cannot match-up with Cleveland on the perimeter, and they are toying with the idea of adding Marbury out of desperation, in order to keep pace with the Cavs. That is the only reason you make a deal with Starbury. That or your Steve and Barry's.

After losing (4) of its last (6), and getting torched by all world guard Wilson Chandler and the Knicks, Kevin Garnett said today that he would not be opposed to playing with Steph, and that Starbury is "one of the best point guards out there to play with." Sure Kev.

As a reminder, the backcourt of Delonte West, LeBron James, and a statue by the name of Walter Szcerbiak almost out dueled the Celtics last season, taking them to game seven, on the road, one big basket short of advancing. In the meantime, the Cavaliers added Mo Williams and subtracted nothing - except Damon Jones. The Celtics subtracted Posey, added nothing, and got older. And to all you Rondo honks, if Rajon was as good as some people make him out to be, they wouldn't be looking to bring in the TO of basketball over in Chowdaville. But desperate times, call for desperate measures, and I will be interested to see how this plays out in Beantown.
