Remember former San Antonio Spurs guard Garrett Temple?
He came on the scene almost out of no where in the 2010 Spurs season and was able to be a solid contributor for the Spurs including a 15-point, 4 assist, 3 rebound outburst when he filled in for then Spur George Hill. Garrett did enough to even garner praise from head coach Gregg Popovich who called him his "favorite."
That was then. This is now.
Temple is trying to make his way back to the NBA and is currently on the Thunder's Summer League squad playing in Orlando, however, I am sure he wishes he wasn't on this end of a Celtics rookie Fab Melo highlight.
Check out Melo swatting Temple's shot in a recent Summer League game.

I’ve been able to learn a lot about the new salary cap structure recently. I’ve picked up a few of the nuances, but not all of them. Sometimes in the pursuit of being creative within the system, I overlook a simple solution to a problem that can dramatically change the Celtics’ offseason. This is one such solution: A sign-and-trade for Jason Terry.
In regard to outgoing...
The Summer League Boston Celtics are undefeated, people! As in, no losses!They have won while controlling a game for four quarters, and they have won with a desperate comeback led by a 6-foot-1 point guard (Jonathan Gibson) who played for a Turkish team called “Trabzonspor” last season. They have won with Jared Sullinger tossing bricks at the rim and they have won with him...

The Celtics have solved at least part of their frontcourt problem by turning to a familiar player.
A team source confirmed today that Chris Wilcox, who had surgery to correct an enlarged aorta last February, has agreed to what is believed to be a veteran’s minimum contract.

The San Antonio Spurs have re-signed guard Patty Mills.
The Spurs announced the move Friday without disclosing terms.
The 6-foot Australian was signed by the Spurs on March 27. He played in 16 games, three of them starts, and averaged 10.3 points, 2.4 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 16.3 minutes.
He set career-highs for points and assists in his final two games of the regular season...
It was quite the day for the San Antonio Spurs yesterday as the team made a number of roster moves which, for the most part, allowed them to remain the same.
With teams adding new players as each day passes during this free agency period, San Antonio decided to take care of their own free agents and foreign asset namely re-signing Danny Green, Patty Mills, Boris Diaw, and the no...
Irrevocable Differences with Rondo was Ray Allen’s number one reason why he left Ray Allen has taken less money to join the Miami Heat after departing Boston. Many have said that there are many reasons for this, and one of the main reasons was Allen’s deteriorating relationship with the Celtics’ starting point guard Rajon Rondo. [...]
Darren's 6'11 so the other two are...
It was a long time coming. I hadn't written a What The Hell Happened To in quite some time. I had writer's block. A lack of up-to-date information on former Celtics. So I've decided to make a special exception for a guy that was ready to "rock and roll in Boston." That's what he said draft night himself...
Kawhi Leonard has never really looked like a rookie. He showed from day one with the Spurs that he was ready to contribute. It wasn’t as a scorer or a sharpshooter, just as a role player that could do what was asked of him in all situations.
His stats, like his minutes, were sporadic all season long. Some games putting in 20 points, others just 4, but he would never complain....
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
What we don’t know yet is how those free agent contracts are structured and how much actual room they will have to finish the roster renovation. The Celtics have to stay under the luxury tax — $70.3 million...
If there is one team in the basketball tournament at the 2012 Olympic Games many San Antonio Spurs fans will be keeping an eye on will be the French national team. Team France boasts three Spurs' players on the roster including Tony Parker, Boris Diaw and the newest Spur, Nando De Colo.
And as the London Games draw ever so close, the French team has been part of a documentary...
Throughout this whole ordeal with Ray Allen turning his back on the Boston Celtics and choosing to sign with the team's biggest current rival in Miami, I have been strangely content. I have seen and fully understand the outrage spewing from fans of all ages, but I haven't been feeling that way.
Am I still checked out?
Admittedly, I went pretty much off the grid following...
Miles Plumlee, the 26th overall pick of the Indiana Pacers, is yet to play in an official NBA game, but he’s already getting busy defying stereotypes at the Orlando Summer League. Plumlee is one of those dudes who serves as proof that a book truly should not be judged by its cover. You look at the guy, and if he was a foot shorter you’d figure he’s never picked up a basketball...
