NBA training camps don’t begin until later this month, but it appears that the Boston Celtics are trying to get a head start on the competition.  On Wednesday, offseason acquisition Courtney Lee sent out a tweet describing a dunk over someone “six to seven inches taller” than himself.  The dunk happened in a Celtics scrimmage, and a video has since been made available.  While Lee hasn’t yet specified who it is that he dunked on, most have figured the victim was rookie big man Fab Melo.  Fortunately for him, the video is grainy enough that he can probably deny any involvement.

Shout-out to Celticslife.com, where I found this video.  Hopefully for Courtney Lee, the Boston Celtics, and slam dunk enthusiasts, this play is a sign of things to come!
