When Reggie Evans gives you lemons …

Lost in the recesses of a recent Celtics notebook [1] from the great Baxter Holmes is this nougat (h/t Celtics Life [2]).

As a joke, Reggie Evans [3] and his teammates autographed a pair of lemons and had a ballboy deliver them across the locker room to his former teammates, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans.

Either this is some strange inside joke among a bunch of former Brooklynite buddies who share a common love of citrus or Evans & Co. just squeezed the Celtics-Nets trade right in their former teammates’ eyes. I can’t be the only one who thinks Evans is saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” And why didn’t they send an autographed yellow fruit over for Gerald Wallace [4]? I’m sure he would have found it hilarious. Or not.
