Tommy Heinsohn Compares Greg Stiemsma to Bill Russell
I strongly feel that every professional team needs a ridiculous homer announcer. For those of you who don’t know what a “homer” is, it is a person that is completely irrational about their own team. Hawk Harrelson of the Chicago White Sox is a great example of a homer. Fans of other teams can’t stand the guy, but many Sox fans love Hawk to death.
Tommy Heinsohn is the Boston Celtics version of the Hawk. He’s not above saying irrational things. In Monday’s Celtics-Wizards game, Heinsohn actually compared young center Greg Stiemsma to Bill Russell. Stiemsma is a 26 year old center who went undrafted and bounced around leagues all over the world. Russell is one of the five best players of all time and he won 11 titles.
God bless homer announcers. Anytime you can compare a journeyman center making his first career NBA start to one of the greatest players of all time, you need some type of award.
