Posey to Receive Ring Before Game
|12.12.08 at 5:31 pm ET|
Former Celtic James Posey will receive his championship ring at 8pm tonight, just prior to the New Orleans Hornets introductions. Posey, who does not talk to the media pregame, answered questions during the morning shootaround.
“It’s going to feel real good,” said Posey, who received his first ring with the Miami Heat in 2006. “What we accomplished last year as a team, it’s something special you can’t take away.”
Both the Celtics and Hornets agree Posey’s second ring is well deserved. As expected, the Hornets are benefiting from his veteran experience as much as the Celtics did.
“From the very beginning he’s been vocal and a leader,” said Peja Stojakovic. “He does things that most people don’t see that the stat sheet doesn’t show … He’s been a very, very big lift for us.”
