Now we can finally stop hearing about him coming here. The spare has found a home in Boston per ESPN.

So the Celtics found their replacement for LaFrentz, it appears.

not quite an accurate comparison there, buddy.

I'm sure you didn't realize that before his injury, Raef was one of the league's premier shotblockers. For instance, he blocked over 213 shots in the 2001/2002 season, his first with the Mavericks. That's over TWO TIMES as many blocks as the entire Mavericks TEAM had last year - we couldn't even break a hundred.

Combine shotblocking production like that to the ability to hit three pointers consistently at a near 40% clip and to rebound a respectable 7-8 boards a game, you get a pretty scary player. It's no wonder why he Raef was once considered one of the brightest young centers in the league. Of course, his inuries have limited his effectiveness recently, partly due to the fact that he has a dead man's ligament in his knee.

Pittsnogle is one dimensional. He doesn't defend, or even try to block shots. He's a terrible rebounder. He's a tall white guy who can hit threes, but that's where the similarities end. To compare him to Raef is to prove your own ignorance.

I'm glad you're so sure what I know and don't know.

Wanna talk ignorance? Here goes. You say that the Mavs as a team couldn't even break a hundred blocked shots? Here are some totals for 2005-2006:

Diop 146
Damp 106
Dirk 83
MBenga 25
Howard 26

Now, I'm no mathematician, but I'm almost certain that those numbers add up to well over a hundred. But thanks for proving your own ignorance. Now go back to dreaming about your crush on LaFrentz. Meanwhile, I'll compare Pittsnogle to him because it's HILARIOUS.
