    This news saddens me quite a bit. Leon Powe was the man. I remember going to games two years ago and wondering why Powe wasn’t getting more playing time. Then, when he blew up against the Lakers, I felt like he cemented himself as a Celtic, a gutsy solid player who knew when to step into the spotlight (when his teamed needed it).

    Simply put, Leon Powe was the man. Here’s hoping he plays well in Cleveland, that is except when the Celtics are in town!

    Powe was a grinder who got the most out of his ability while here in Boston. Classy guy as well. I echo your thoughts on him Josh, he will be missed. Unfortunately, they can’t keep everyone. All things considered, if Powe never was injured, I would’ve preferred signing him over Big Baby, but Powe suffered a major injury and I feel they made the right move by shoring up BBaby and unfortunately that meant goodbye to Powe. I wish him well.
