The things that he’s been able to accomplish in his time here, it was just amazing. And I’m pretty sure all the Boston fans would love that, too. Of course they would. Why wouldn’t they?

However, now that he has had a little time to reflect on things, The Truth may play next season after all. But it appears that...
