Leon Powe is unemployed
Forward Leon Powe played hard for the Celtics on a rookie contract. He helped them win a title. His coach called him a kid who had "done everything right."Powe's agent thinks it's rough that the Celtics are more or less ditching Leon after what he gave to the team, including endangering his career to play through an ACL during the play-offs.
And in the course of duty, he severely messed up his knee. Shortly after that, as luck would have it, his contract then came to an end just when he was due to get his first really big contract (his salary has always been six figures, not the seven he had coming).
"What does it say when a player like Leon Powe, a great human being, who played through injury and pain for three straight years for the Boston Celtics, including in a playoff game after tearing his ACL, is rewarded by the team saying to him "we only have a short window to win, and you are not a part of our plans because you are now injured.""

What do you think? Just the way it is, or could the Celtics have shown a bit more heart?
