Martin Surprised Celtics Didn’t Sign Him
The New York roster will include one Kenyon Martin, who signed with the Knicks last month but was sure he’d be wearing Celtics green this season.
“It was real close,” Martin told me before last night’s game. “Like, the deal was almost done. From what I understood, Doc wanted me and the players wanted me, but in the 11th hour …”
In the 11th hour what?
“They didn’t pull the trigger,” Martin said. “And I’m not talking a few days ago or even a few weeks ago. This was a couple of months ago.
“So now I’m here and I’m going to make them pay — I’m going to make all the teams that passed on me pay.”
