It's a one day contract. It doesn't impact them at all in the long run.

Technically, he will retire a Celtic, because the signing is still official. It may seem silly, but I think it's an appropriate ceremonial gesture. They came to a parting of the ways because they were rebuilding and he wasn't done playing, but he was always going to be remembered as a Celtic. Granted, I think a homecoming like there was with KG in Minnesota is a better scenario, and I suppose you could say that's a more "legitimate" way of ending your career back with a team, but I have no problem with it. It's a reconciliatory gesture as much as anything, something that gives the people involved a sense of closure that they wanted. Where's the harm?

of course ray was a big part of the celtics championship but it no way was he the most important part however the fans did not break the relationship, he did. if that bitch wants loyalty he needs to give it.

Perhaps IT won't get the brinks truck of $ he's asking for?

Sorry for digging this one up btw. Dunc'd podcast did an off season grade pod recently and surprisingly ainge was given a C.....

IT continues to have terrific seasons but will the market create the max he wants? Especially when you consider his size, playing style, and age. Maybe he has some leverage since the Celtics drafted Tate instead of fultz but smart is still around
