House: Heat will be ‘Boston on steroids’

Speaking to the Arizona Republic, [1]former Celtics [2] guard Eddie House [3] said he was upset when dealt from the C’s to the Knicks just before the trade deadline.

“That stung a little bit,” House said. “When you feel like you’re a main part of what the team is doing and you’re on a mission, to get the rug pulled out from under you and get sent to a team that has no shot … that kind of hurt.”

The guard said that even though Celtics coach Doc Rivers [4] told him the trade to New York for Nate Robinson [5] was likely to happen on the morning of Feb. 18, House still insisted on practicing with the team just in case there was a glitch in the last-minute paperwork.

House, who signed a two-year deal worth $2.8 with the Heat this offseason, noted that what awaits the dynamic with Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, and LeBron James [6] all playing together in Miami dwarfs even what the Celtics experienced heading into the 2007-08 season.

“I compare it to the year I went to Boston when the Big 3 got together in 2007,” House said. “But this is going to be even bigger. This is going to be Boston on steroids.”
