Which comes as a total shock, the Miami Herald is reporting that free agents Mike Bibby and Troy Murphy are leaning towards signing with the Miami Heat.
This would be a crushing blow to the Boston Celtics, not only would they be missing out on two key additions, the Miami Heat would be addressing two areas of need. The swing could be enough to catapult the Heat over the Celtics once and for all. The Heat have shown an ability to cruise past lesser teams relying on the their Big Three, but have struggled when playing an elite team that features an above average guard and/or center.
Aside from a stronger Miami Heat basketball team, the Celtics would also have to deal with the throngs of fans berating local sports talk radio host before throwing themselves off the Tobin bridge claiming Danny Ainge traded away future hall of famer Kendrick Perkins for nothing.
