    Grew up cheering for Larry and the Celtics. I could do it again.

    Oh hell yeah. Rivals in the east or not, I like and respect the celtics..I would definitely become a fan if he goes there..would improve my odds having two teams anyway.

    I think this anxiety thing is overblown. Flying in the NBA is like riding in luxury, you hop on a private charter that is plush inside and being that a lot of the flights are late night you'll sit down and fall asleep after a game probably. It's not like he'll have to go through airport security and wait at the terminal like you would for a commercial flight which from what I have read the pre-flight stuff is what gets his anxiety going and he's fine once he's in the air.

    Anyone who gets Royce in the 20's is getting a steal. Everyone keeps referring to him as top 10 talent then there is the "but..." followed but the anxiety disorder stuff. As much traveling as he'll have to do in the NBA it won't take long for it to just become part of his routine and seem like nothing. In college he had to fly maybe once a week, twice at most. In the NBA he might be flying 3 or 4 times a week if they are on a long road game stretch.

    I really think Boston would be a great fit for him. It's a great orginization with a great coach and fan base. Plus if they keep KG Royce would be playing with one of the best leaders in the sport.

    They just need to watch old A-Team episodes to learn the tricks they used on B.A. Baracus.

    I'm still like this idea. Granted, there might be issues with Royce and Rondo on the floor at the same time since you'd have 2 non-shooters out there, but I really think having KG as a veteran mentor would be good for Royce (assuming Boston resigns KG).

    It actually sounds like the Celtics may trade up and try to get Harrison Barnes.

    VOMIT. I've been a life-long Celtics fan, but if they draft that little prima-donna, then the Celtics will be dead to me. I'll have to do something drastic, like become a Lakers fan. : (

    I should lend RentACenter my Sarcasm-Detectors. I get 90% of there profits.

    Wanna know why I have to let RAC have my SDs is because NO ONE CAN DETECT SARCASM ON THERE OWN.

    I've already lent out 2.

    Sorry for my troll rant.

    Now, now, don't be picking on him. If you've actually taken the time to read everything he has ever written, you would know that he has NEVER misspelled a word.:cool:

    1 thing to remember is royce has said a hundred times he has more trouble getting to the airport than actually flying its self. Shouldnt be a concern imo
