Do The Celtics Have A Shot At Dwight Howard?

He's pretty good.  Except when he plays the Celtics - then he's overrated.

Blogging 101, to get a lot of people talking, write about a topic everyone's already talking about.

This has already been covered here in several different ways but like Bill Cosby's Jello, there's always room for more. This time Paul Flannery breaks down the possible destinations for Dwight Howard and sums up the Celtics sales pitch thusly.

Here’s the pitch: Come play with a defensive-minded, pass-first point guard in Rondo and for coach Doc Rivers (a strong selling point, by the way), and you’ll be joining forces on one of the truly historic basketball teams as they transition from one era to the next. Did we mention the 17 banners? Bill Russell? You might have heard we're building a statue for him.

My money (if I were a betting man) would be on him staying in Orlando or perhaps going to Brooklyn. I don't really hold out much hope at all for him but as long as that door is open, Celtics fans are going to be quoting Dumb and Dumber for a whole year.
