The season is saved: Boston signs MacGruber!
Oh, you naysayers are going to have a harder time saying nay now. In what may quite possibly be the best signing of his professional career, Danny Ainge has brought in MacGruber.
Playoffs? How about winning every title from now until ever? I mean, MacGruber typically only has 20 seconds to work with, but the shot clock in the NBA is 24 seconds. Can you image what he can do with an extra four seconds? He could probably build the team a center using only the cups and straws that are left around the TD Garden after a home game. That's exactly...wait...what? The Celtics signed Rodney McGruder? Son of a...well, according to Hoop365:
The 6’4 off-guard is also only one year into a professional career, spending the bulk of his first campaign in Hungary with Atomeromu, averaging 14.4 points and 5.3 rebounds in 27 minutes a contest.
Boston also reportedly signed Christian Watford. Again from Hoop365:
Watford, a jumpshooting combo forward, attended summer league this year with both the Detroit Pistons and Golden State Warriors, averaging 8.5 points in two games for Detroit. He has spent the one year of his professional career thus far in Israel.
It looks like these guys are training camp invites, not the saviors to all of our prayers. Man, and this day was going so well, too. Oh well, maybe these guys can show something in camp and stick around in the D-League until a roster spot opens up.
Are we sure MacGruber isn't available?
