Celtics sold. Will the new owners hang #17?:
This one comes as a big shocker here in Boston. No one had any idea the team was up for sale. You know Larry Bird is pissed. Now that Paul Gaston is out, will these guys open the wallets and try to win a title?

Although Gaston turned down Larry's 350 million offer in the spring, the ire is perhaps eased some by the fact that the new owners have explicitly said they're open to other investors, and Larry's main partner in the Charlotte venture has said he'd follow Larry if Larry headed back to Boston. So there's potential here.
