    What is the point of having this article when their shoes are no where to be found. Such a waste.

      I don’t think the team is trying to sell you the shoes. I think they just want to let fans know about what Mike and Joe have done this offseason and show that they have more personality than most people think.

    Really I cant hate on Joe I mean I would do ANYTHING they asked me to for the contract he got. As far as having a love for the game I dont see it in Joe I mean cmon Look at him, hes been the same size speed, and athletic level since he was a rookie, anyone who loved the game would be in that gym every summerr working there arse off…………. If Joe was serious about basektball and winning he would have not only been working on his game but working on his athletism: speed, explosivenes, leaping ability, stamina, strength, etc. I like Joe and hes increadibly talented but if he had worked on getting his body in better shape he would be a top 5 player in the leauge right now I have no doubt.

    I know, its a terrible sign but let me explain what im saying zach you might be a pretty good basketball player but youre probablly not better than joe so say the asg offered YOU to a contract like joe’s? YOud take and no offense but youd be the worst SG in nba history but who cares your still getting paid, if that were to happen, we should be mad at the ASG not you so thats what im saying, joe wasnt a smart resign but we cant be mad at him we can only blame the ones who sign him.

    anyway: this is our team right now
    1:Bibby/teauge(hes not ready to start)
    2:Joe:Jamal
    :Marvin/Mo
    4:Smoove/Powell
    5:Horford/Pachulia/Collins

    I want to get angry with Rick Sund because he always says that the team will be alright, and he never wants to exceed the cap and that he always seems to be happy even tho the eastern conference has gotten extremely tough this past offseason, I want to hate him but I cant help but think he has something up his sleeve, we cant say he’s a bad GM because he got us crawford last season so Ill wait to judge him, hopefully he can pull some thing off maybe a multi-team trade,I was hoping for derron collison but my dreams were just crushed.

    if i were going to sign joe, it would be to six years 10 million . second zach signing boone, stackhouse, and mi newest edition allen iverson who can still play and is way better than shaq would improve this team. bring 2 scorers that combined can give you 38 points per game. second we should trade zaza mo and marvin for cash. If i were you i would have faith in al horford that he give us 16 ppg 10.1 rpg and 2.1 bpg.
