So very close…

Leon Powe’s deal is now official, and all there is left to do is sit and wait for him to pass his physical. Of course, Powe’s physical is a bit more dicey than the average physical, so there’s still a little bit of breath to be held. I”m not really sure what they’re testing for-I guess if it looks like he’ll be able to jerk his knee in four months, we’re cool? Can anyone shed light on how a busted knee gets tested?

And by the way, I failed to touch on the “The Celtics failed to offer Powe a qualifying offer and now he seeks sweet revenge against them” angle in my initial write-up. Needless to say, I find that kind of awesome. I am extremely excited for Leon Powe. Alright, so everybody keep your fingers crossed at work today and wish Leon good luck with his physical, and I’ll check in with all of you with a SPECIAL NEW FEATURE tonight. (Or early tomorrow morning, for those of you who sleep.)
