If I'm Posey I'm weighing:

LA:

WAY better weather

Nicer chicks by far (with or without enhancements)

Kobe and all that it entails as a "teammate"

Boston:

play with Ubuntu and KG, PP and RA

absolutely miserable weather (if you go by the last 12 months, for sure)

Grab another ring.

If I'm Posey, I have to admit it's tempting.

I don't think LA is looking to drop a full MLE for 4 years on Posey. They're more focused on keeping Turiaf and Vujacic. They can't loose those 2, especially Vujacic. I don't think LA (and its lack of a big offer) is weighing that heavily on Posey's mind.

Yeah, chicks & nice weather and higher cost of living/taxes on a reasonable mansion in Malibu vs weather he is used to and a virtual pick of the litter of NorthEastern chicks still high taxes but more reasonable cost for a 5000sqft crib... Tough on him, I know, I know  ::) LOL

Of course, they're on the road a third of the year, anyways...

But more seriously, feeling comfortable in your teamates and a continuation of a role on a team that is now well along in its gelling mode and as good of a shot at another ring as anywhere else vs team anti-Ubuntu still in shake-up mode with a headcase for its leader, although wining always helps with that, things seem much more in flux moving into that clubhouse IMO...

Now's the time to pick up a nice underpriced waterfront crib out in Cal. though, I guess, and after seeing K.G. place out there, no doubt it gives one some ideas too...

No question, Posey with the Big 3 and the youngsters were a magical combination this year. I just wonder if he'd be up for a change of scenery. We'll find out where his priorities are soon enough. If I were in his place I wonder if I'd be willing to resist the land of In-n-Out Burger and the Green Flash. Depending upon the contract he could get a place in Malibu down the street from KG.

Who the hell cares if Posey gets a 5 year contract as opposed to a 4 year contract?  Keep this unit together!  They just won the championship, and Posey was a big part of it!  We are not in rebuilding mode, they rebuilt again and again, and finally got it right.  Keep this team together.  By the time Posey's at the end of his contract, the window of opportunity with KG, PP and RA will be closed anyway, so who cares?  Win now!  Keep him, whatever the cost!

We will when he gets to the end of the contract.  We will when he is not longer as effective, but his cap hit keeps the Celtics from adding a younger more talented player because of tax issues.

Yep.  Whether the "big three" are here in four or five seasons or not, we don't want a lot of bad contracts clogging our payroll flexibility.

I say three years max, unless he wants to sign a very reasonable deal, salary wise.  I'd potentially give him money or years, but not both.
