Oh sure, it might be a transition year (though don't tell that to Boston's returning veterans), but Jeff Green found a way to keep the Celtics-Heat rivalry flickering. From Wicked Local Beverly:
For Beverly resident Nathan Barry, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse: An autographed game-worn sneaker from Boston Celtic Jeff Green, in exchange for all of his Miami Heat gear -- starting with the cap he was currently wearing.
It was a tempting trade for the youngster, who stood face-to-kneecap with his towering 6-foot-9, 235-pound basketball hero.
“I have to make sure you get rid of this hat,” said Green, going over the finer points of the swap. “And you’re going to have to mail all your Miami stuff back to me. I will then dispose of it. Is it a deal?”
It was a no-brain decision for Barry, a third grader at the Centerville School. The tyke even shook on the deal, swearing off all of his Heat regalia for the entire season, before hurling his red cap into the trash can.
