Another day, another installation of "Camp questions". We pass the halfway point of the Celtics roster with a closer look at new Celtic Gerald Wallace.
About Gerald Wallace:
Wallace is the most tenured player on the Celtics, currently preparing for his 13th NBA season. He played only one season at Alabama before entering the NBA at age 19 in 2001. He spent his first three seasons with the Kings (he is the only member of the 2002 Kings, who were screwed over in the Western Conference Finals against the Lakers, still in the league), playing sparingly for a veteran Sacramento squad.
In 2004, Wallace got his big chance as he was selected by the Bobcats in the expansion draft. He spent six and a half seasons in Charlotte, helping the Bobcats to their one and only playoff appearance in 2010. Wallace is Charlotte's all-time leader in points and steals, 2nd in rebounds and blocks, and 5th in assists (amazing stat alert: six years after he left, KG is not only the all-time ...

Jared Sullinger’s court case will continue on, though his girlfriend Deann Smith wishes to drop the case completely. The Celtics forward appeared in Waltham District Court on Monday for a pretrial hearing, and is due back for a second pretrial session on Oct. 28, according to media sources. This pretrial hearing is only two days before the Celtics regular season opener in Milwaukee...
When people from the Boston area hear the word “Pierce” or the word “Truth”, the first thing they think of is the former captain of the Boston Celtics, Paul Pierce. The Truth was so important not only to the Boston Celtics franchise, but to the Boston area has well. Pierce brought up a great point the other day, one that I have never given thought to, but it struck...
Dime has a list of the 20 toughest players in the NBA. Former Celtics Kendrick Perkins (no surprise there), Paul Pierce, and Tony Allen made the list. And listed at #3 is Celtics' point guard, Rajon Rondo, with only Joakim Noah and Kobe Bryant considered tougher. Here is what they had to say about Rondo.
Known as the weak link during the Celtics championship run in 2008...
The Celtics ownership group was honored at The Tradition for bringing back Celtics Pride. Celtics legends explain what makes the group work and just what Celtics Pride is. Just as Walter Brown trusted Red Auerbach with running the team back in the beginning, this group have trusted Danny Ainge to do the same. The first 10 years of this group produced a championship, let's...
After a long hiatus due to an offseason of inactivity and the laziness of yours truly, Celtics Life Week in Reviews are back! What a week is was! We found out about some former Celtics players that are always top of mind like Joe Pace and Johnny McCarthy. It's nice to focus on those guys, because boy is that current Celtics section looking depressing.
Catch up on a busy week...
The domestic violence case against Jared Sullinger is going ahead, even as his girlfriend opposes the court’s efforts to pursue the case.
The decision whether to move on with the court case against Sullinger is out of the hands of Deann Smith, Sullinger’s girlfriend, who accused Sullinger of attacking her and threatening her during an argument on Aug. 31. The court has decided...

In terms of notable steals in Boston Celtics, Gerald Henderson’s stolen pass in game two of the 1984 NBA Finals has to be ranked among the best.
Recently, the fine folks over at the popular Celtics blog “Red’s Army” did a post to commemorate the 26th anniversary of Larry Bird’s steal against the Detroit Pistons in game five of the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals and writer John...
As ESPN continues it's rankings, I think it would be a good time to post player profiles for the Celtics as they are listed in the rankings. We already highlighted the Celtics and former Celtics who were listed in the bottom 100, and there were several. Now, as they list the next 400 players, we will briefly profile those players. Between numbers 301 and 400, there...

The past few days have been full of some fun surprises. First, Gerald Henderson took a minute to shoot back a rebuttal to my calling Larry Bird’s steal against the Pistons in 1987 “The best play in Celtics history“
Then Keith Olbermann decided he wanted to disagree with me too. He said John Havlicek’s steal in 1965 was the best.
While all three were great plays that can...
In yesterday's Boston Globe Gary Washburn shared some quotes from Paul Pierce about what his plans are for life after basketball:
“Ultimately, what I would like to do is have a business in Boston. Maybe like a sports bar. I would love to do something like that here. None of the former Celtic great players have come and done that. I thought about it, and why hasn’t anyone...
