Posey Crushes Our Hearts, Heads to Hornets
Posted by r1zzo23 on July 16, 2008
James Posey, arguably the most coveted unrestricted free agent left on the market, agreed to a four-year deal with the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday worth an estimated $25 million, his agent, Mark Bartelstein, said.
This news hurts this team deeply. Not only did we lose probably the best glue guy in the league, but we also missed out on opportunities to sign a replacement such as Corey Maggette or Mickael Pietrus. Only positive about Posey not re-signing is we now have money to pay Eddie House to stay, but that decision is up to Danny.
Hornets’ fans, embrace James for every penny he is worth because he truly is a special player. I would have liked to see him make Boston his final team, but the cards just didn’t fall that way. I wish you the best, James, as you have earned every dollar any team would be willing to pay you.
