Found October 15, 2012 on Celtics Life:
"Kris, I think he's an all-around player" -Danny Ainge Lost in the training camp battles and storylines (Can Jamar Smith be a backup PG? Can Dionte Christmas get any more likeable?) is the battle for one young man. I watched this guy ever since he got to Syracuse in 2008 (Proud brother of a Syracuse graduate). When we drafted him in the second round this year, I was ecstatic. One of my favorite college players of all time? On my favorite NBA team? Match made in heaven! But Kris unfortunately has made little noise so far in terms of locking up a roster spot, and I worry that he'll get cut. Now you may be asking, why care so much about a guy who will only get spot minutes as our third string SF? But its not about that. Its about adding guys to the current core who will help usher in the post-Garnett era. Let me give you some background of Joseph's player profile for those who are not familiar with him: Hes a good shooter/slasher who has some nice athleticism an...

Celtics Lose to Sixers 107-75 - Nothing To See Here

Not much to say about this one except to learn from it and move on. The Celtics stayed within 2 in the first quarter but after that, it wasn't even close. Once again, one of the culprits was turnovers as the Celtics gave the ball away 21 times. Another problem was once again their pick and roll defense. That's one thing they have to solve before the season starts because...

Preseason Gives Celtics Bench a Chance to Shine

To paraphrase Allen Iverson “Preseason... we talkin bout preseason... not a real game but preseason.” That is what we are relegated to; fawning about the preseason because of last year's shortened season and even shorter preseason.  It affected the Celtics the most, leaving them running on fumes and little to no help from their bench.  A bench who found itself persona non...

Celtics formed Wolfpack overseas

Jason Terry will be posting an online diary up on ESPN Boston. Here's a snippet from his first entry: The funniest moment on the trip was we were attracting a lot of attention because of KG's [Kevin Garnett] size. He's so tall that they recognized him easily. We were getting bombarded by pictures. So all of sudden, KG takes the camera from one lady and started taking...

Knicks Edge Celtics in OT 98-95

High scorer of the game was Carmelo Anthony with 23. Jared Sullinger led the Celtics with 14. The Celtics were narrowly out-rebounded 52-50 but the Knicks won on the offensive glass...

Comments From the Other Side - Sixers 10/15

Well, that was unpleasant to watch. Hopefully the Celtics got that all out of their system and hopefully Doc can start defining roles a bit more so that they can get into a groove before the start of the season. Sixers fans aren't all that bad a bunch. They don't seem to have the vitriol that say Knicks fans or Heat fans or Lakers fans have. My favorite comment was the...

The New Green?

1st time all star? Comeback player of the year? Top 25 player in the NBA? How about all three. Jeff Green is back and his resurgence is as important to the Celtic's future as is Rondo's steady climb to become and maintain the title of the league's best playmaker. What is even more important is their connection and how they are able to make eachother better. The duo of...
