35 -- still a young man.  If he has his demons behind him (gambling?) then he can still have a great life. I'd imagine he'll have many opportunities for work as long as he's willing.  Being a former star likly gets his foot in a lot of doors.

I wish him the best.  a shame he didn't have a better career.  I blame a good part of that on Pitino's arrival which changed his game completely.  To his credit, he loved be a Celtic and it killed him to be traded that first time.

I'll never forget his never-say-die attitude that led to that greatest comeback (IMHO) I've ever seen in that playoff game against the Nets.  Toine will always hold a special place in Celtic lore for that game (for me anyway).

The James Toney of basketball. Not to mention, they look alike (LOL).

Wish him best. But he have a pretty successful career. 1 ring and  3 all-star appearance isn't too shabby.

I would not mind him replacing Donny.  Best of luck to him.

TP for a great idea.  bring him back to the organization he's always wanted to be a part of.  I certainly won't miss Donny if he goes.

Honestly, I don't know that I'd trust Toine to be totally presentable in that capacity.

Would be nice if we get Toine to work in the office. I would also like to have Dee Brown back.

Someone help me out. I seem to remember Toine doing some guest spots on TNT's halftime show a couple years back, right after the C's traded him the first time. Am I making this up?

He sold his championship ring for $21,000 to pay of debts. Everything he ever worked for and all he had to show for it, gone (along with millions of dollars)
