Good point, everyone including me just forgot about Brads being a former Celtic. Like totally forgot. We had a thread about this subject at Gen, too. He most definitely will get a ring and deserves one as much as Markieff Morris. And JR Smith wasn't shy about actin like he was here all season. But Rondo should at least go before Bradley in the statement since he played all season.

Not that Bradley won a ring with the Cs or anything. I just remembered he's a former Celtic that played for your team, pre-bubble.

Oh, sh, n/m. I thot for a min that he was on that 08 team. You got me on that one. But AB will get a ring w/o the slightest doubt in my mind and deserves one.

I'm glad I followed this entire conversation because you both had me starting to panic that I forgot AB was on the 08 team. He definitely gets a ring, he played the entire regular season with them. Missing the bubble would be no different than being hurt for the playoffs.

Bradley and Cousins will both get rings. The first person coach called was Bradley by his own admission to thank him for his help this year. And the first person AD called was Cousins who was still allowed to use all team facilities even after being cut.

The only real question is Daniels who asked to be let go from the team which is actually why Waiters was signed, as pelinka said he and his agent had come to him weeks before asking to be traded or to negotiate a deal elsewhere because he wanted minutes and wasn't happy just sitting like Cook/Dudley

50% you y'all have been saying Rondo was done/trash for the last 5 years or so.

Avery is getting a ring. It's been reported on a bit.
