If Boston Celtics have their way, Kevin Love will be walking through that door.
Although the Celtics are one of a handful of teams reportedly vying for Love’s services, a lot of people are Boston seem to have already put the All-Star power forward in green. Memories of 2007, when a quick one-summer turnaround boosted the Celtics into title contention, are coming to mind once again.
It won’t be that easy, though. For one thing, the Eastern Conference has gotten tougher at the top. For another, Love is not the same caliber of player Kevin Garnett was back then. Danny Ainge’s work would only be getting started if he pulls off a blockbuster deal for Love.
None of that means the Celtics shouldn’t pull the trigger in a second, given the opportunity.
Scott Souza, Celtics beat writer for the MetroWest Daily News, joined NESN.com’s Ben Watanabe to discuss the realities of the Love situation as it pertains to the Celtics. SBNation’s Kevin O’Connor also dropped by once again to break down a few more players in the 2014 NBA draft.
