 We don't know if Chris Wilcox will return next year or not.   He didn't really get a fair shake this past season, considering that he had heart surgery on March 29 and was back playing in training camp in October.   Jeff Green's surgery was on January 9, almost 3 months earlier and it still took him until after the All Star game to finally start feeling almost normal again. I think Chris came back too quickly because he was hampered early by injuries.   He wasn't able to get back to where he was before the surgery.   Chris's strength was his ability to run with Rajon Rondo and finish at the basket.  By the time he finally was getting his conditioning and timing back, Rondo went down with the knee injury.     I'd really like to see him get another chance with the Celtics next season. Along with what he can bring on the court, Chris is making a difference off the court.  He tweeted the following about his upcoming charity golf game to benefit The Lupus Foundation and the American Heart Association. @sherrodbcsn Save the date for my #golfouting on Sept 9th. Hope you can make it. twitter.com/ChrisWilcox44/… — Chris Wilcox (@ChrisWilcox44) May 23, 2013 "At the end of the day, Boston gave me a second chance on life, a second chance on my career," Wilcox told CSNNE.com."I owe everything to them for giving me that opportunity. But at the same time, I want to give back to the community and show the fans that I appreciate the support they gave me when I was going through what I was going through." On May 13th, Chris hosted 10 students from Oak Hill Middle School for a basketball clinic. He gave them basketball tips as well as stressing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. After the basketball clinic, Chris was able to share his story with the kids and he encouraged them to make every day count. He also took them on a special tour of the Celtics locker room and training room. I'll always pull for Chris, whether he's back with the Celtics or not. He's definitely one of the good guys.
