08:11 AM ET 09.05 | Perhaps the Celtics had believed the banners were enough. Although Boston may be the most storied city in league history, it has not hosted an NBA All-Star Game since 1964. As soon as the lockout concludes, Houston is expected to be officially announced as the host city -- for the second time in seven years -- for the 2013 game. It is believed that ownership squabbles between the Celtics and the Bruins, as well as disagreements with the mayor over the past several years, have grounded any plans for the February classic to return to Boston. But Mayor Thomas Menino said the days of infighting within Boston's sports and political infrastructure are over. "We haven't had it since '64 and I think we're ready for it," Menino said.

And it's not like the response to yesterday's post was on a Favre or Tebow scale. I guess it was either this or another story about another player who maybe, just maybe, will play in Europe. Stupid lockout.

Please man, just worry about us getting a decent big man.

But if you listen to Celtic fans they had the best big man in the game in Kendrick Perkins. You know that guy that talks a better game then he plays.
