Chris Sheridan with the scoop. In the latest installment of “Catch a Rising Star,” Boston Celtics president Dany Ainge traveled to Greece to get a first-hand look at Giannis Adetokunbo, the 6-foot-10 point guard who is moving up draft boards by leaps and bounds. Aingle was in the house — and got heckled by Lakers fans — as Adetokunbo scored 19 points and grabbed 9 rebounds and two steals in the championship round of the Greek A2 league. Ainge also saw the CSKA-Panathinaikos Euroleague game, an qs quoted by Greek media as comparing Adetokundo as reminding him of a young Scottie Pippen. A taller version of Scottie Pippen? That works for me. I've always been disappointed in the Celtics lack of solid foreign drafting. Let's compare the C's to the Spurs. The Celtics passed on Tony Parker, so they could draft Joe Forte.

Comments from the Other Side - Cavs 4/5

It's amazing how teams that are tanking and want to lose every game still get up for the Celtics.  Maybe it's Byron Scott's Laker hate of the Celtics or years of getting beaten  by them but they all hate the Celtics.  And everyone hates on Tommy.  But I love him, and don't want any announcer but him.  I'm not so upset about this loss.  We didn't have ...

Live Game Updates - Cavaliers @ Celtics
