Walker is in; Law is out

Antoine Walker is a Celtic again, and Ty Law is a Patriot no more. Tom Brady is also set to sign a long-term contract extension. It’s a busy Saturday morning on the Boston sports scene.

We’ll start with the Celtics. Let’s get those ratings numbers for last night’s Celtics-Jazz tilt in Salt Lake City. To the delight of FSNE, Walker’s return undoubtedly raised the eyeball count for the broadcast. Count me among the curious who tuned in specifically to see how Walker would fare in his first game back with the Celtics. As it turned out, No. 88 played well in the post and on the glass (24 points, 10 rebounds) to help his new – and old – team past the Jazz, 109-102.

You guys called us old, over. I read some of your pathetic articles and some of your lousy analysis. It’s opinion and obviously you don’t know what drives us. We thank y’all for those articles, appreciate it because it lit a fire under us. One of the hardest things I’ve always said in this league is to create chemistry.
