It’s a day after Kendrick Perkins and four other players were traded away from my Boston Celtics, and like others, I’m still reeling. It may make financial sense, and basketball sense. Both now and in the future. But today it just hurts. So I’ll let KG do the talking.
Tough day to play basketball. Very tough day to play basketball, to even concentrate. Just being bluntly honest. You feel like you lost a family member today. Tough day.
