Cassell Forcing His Way Onto Celtics

Apparently, Sam Cassell really wants to be a Celtic, and it looks like all his hard work is paying off.

This all started over a month ago, when Sam Cassell (a Los Angeles Clipper) made the public confession that he would be the perfect addition to the Boston Celtics. Of course, to most fans and media, this was taken as a ‘dis’ on the Celtics current point guard, Rajon Rondo; leading to the February 6 match up between the Clippers and Celtics looking like a showdown between these two players. This could be a chance for Cassell to prove what an upgrade he would be to his future team. In case you haven’t seen it already, check out this clip to see what happens when things don’t go exactly as Cassell plans.

Perhaps Cassell, realizing his tryout wasn’t going so well, decided on plan B: eliminate the competition – “If the Celtics don’t need me now, maybe they will after THIS.”

Whatever it was he was thinking/offering, the Celtics weren’t really biting, up until now. Cassell has missed four straight games with a wrist injury, and the Clippers have placed him on waivers. Assuming he clears waivers, all sources sound pretty confident that he will sign with the Celtics. It turned out, all he needed to do was get hurt, not get somebody else hurt. The higher ups are also saying he will not replace Rondo in the starting lineup, he will simply offer minutes late in the game when Rondo’s inexperience often shows.

Of course, this Cassell mission could really take a turn south if someone claims him off of waivers, a serious long shot, but would be hilarious if it actually happened. What’s interesting is, if the Celtics really wanted him, don’t you think they’d be willing to claim him off waivers?
