I've said in the past, that the Celtics need a bigs coach. Someone that can encourage them, teach them, and to be someone that can be an ear. Leon Powe's career's was cut short because of a knee injury, and I think he's the kind of guy that the Celtics need to teach their current group of bigs.
Powe is ambitious, but with something else.
Powe, who was in town representing the '08 Celtics championship team during the Boston Red Sox opening ceremonies on Friday, wants to someday own an NBA team.
"I always wanted to do it," Powe told CSNNE.com prior to Boston's 111-102 loss to Philadelphia. "I had a dream when I was younger to make it to the NBA, and be a businessman."
Although there is not an NBA team currently for sale, Powe said he is in the process of putting together a group of potential investors in case one does hit the open market soon.
A league source told CSNNE.com that two teams that might be made available in the near future are the Milwaukee Bucks and the Orlando Magic.
I wish him luck on his goals. Powe also sat down with Celtics.com for a one-on-one interview. Powe will always be remembered for his 21 point game in game 2 of the NBA Finals in 2008.
