McHale has no regrets. Green Bandwagon Note - That's a lot easier to say when Kevin Garnett is out of the lineup and not capable of using it as motivation to reek havoc in his homecoming. Although to be fair, McHale makes some interesting points. I was particularly intrigued by this quote:

"I've never seen teams lie more after a big deal to try to pacify their fans and say, `Well, we offered all this.' I can tell you that I read three or four things that said a source high up in Organization X said they offered this, this and this. I wish they had. Then we might have had more competition in the deal. But it just wasn't true. People came out after the trade and said Boston didn't give up anything. For me, I can either call those organizations out on the carpet and say they're all lying. Or you can just shake your head like I normally do and just go, `Wow, people are really insecure.'" - Kevin McHale

Allen getting legs back under him. Green Bandwagon Note - I was excited because I thought this article was about Ray Allen. Don't get me wrong I'm happy for Tony Allen. But I already knew he was doing better. Especially after he did this.
Cassell rips Globe story. Green Bandwagon Note - You know the Herald loved running this story. Just compare its headline to the Globe's (see link).

Maximum Love in Mini. Green Bandwagon Note: Timberwolves super fan Bill Beise:
"I miss Kevin, that's all I can say. He's not there and it's a big void for me."

Easy there champ. You might want to take a few plays off.
