BOSTON — As the other rookies and training camp invitees were gradually culled from the Celtics roster during the preseason, Kris Joseph got closer and closer to being a real NBA player. Once the regular season dawned and Joseph was still on the roster, he said all the right things about fulfilling whatever role coach Doc Rivers assigned to him. When asked if that held true even if his role were in the D-League, Joseph shrugged and said he would make the best of it. Just how eagerly Joseph embraces a demotion will be tested now that he and fellow rookie Fab Melo have been assigned to the Celtics’ NBADL affiliate in Portland, Maine. The Maine Red Claws play their home games only about 100 miles north on I-95, but for Joseph and Melo it is light years from where they desire to be, of course. Still, leaving Causeway Street for Casco Bay could end up being the rookies’ best-case scenario. Joseph appeared in one of the Celtics’ first seven games, spending three whole minutes on the floor...

I think the Bulls win. The Celtics aren't...

Jason Terry is a Shooter - Awesome!

I love these NOC Jason Terry is a Celtic videos. Shooting 91% from midrange is pretty incredible. Of course he didn't have a hand in his face or a defender running at him, but as we've seen in recent games, he's pretty good even with a defender on him. I don't know about you, but I'm very glad that Jason Terry is a Celtic! [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Jeff Green Has An Aerial Display Directly On Al Jefferson’s Head

Halfway through the fourth quarter of the Utah Jazz and Boston Celtics game, Jeff Green of the Celtics found some superhuman leaping abilities and applied them accordingly. Jeff drove down the lane and dunked over two defenders, but Al Jefferson was the one who ended up on a very life-sized poster. The dunk is an easy early season candidate for dunk of the year.
