Pierce, Johnson reunited with second shot at success

Midway through the 2001-02 season Celtics general manager Chris Wallace saw an opportunity. The once-proud franchise which was still recovering from the disastrous Rick Pitino was on its way to its first playoff appearance since 1995 behind strong play from Paul Pierce and Antoine Walker when a trade possibility materialized with the Suns. So Wallace sensing a chance for the Celtics...

What the Hell Happened to...Erick Strickland?

He was a tough lefty-combo guard who was the master of taking charges.  In 2002 the Celtics were 4-0 with him as the starting point guard when Kenny Anderson got injured.  I for one was crushed when he left Boston after his one season.  If you remember the Cinderella Celtics of 2002, you absolutely remember Erick Strickland. A former Nebraska Cornhusker (and a tremendous...

What the Hell Happened to...Rubén Wolkowyski?

He shared locker room with other fellow WTHHT members as Kedrick Brown, Vin Baker and Tony Delk and had the privilege of wearing Raef LaFrentz´s #45 before he became a member of the Celtics.

What the Hell Happened To...Kedrick Brown?

He was the super athlete before Gerald Green.  If you were young and naive and someone said he could jump out of a gym you might've believed it.  He was the guy Phoenix really wanted in the Joe Johnson-Rodney Rogers deal.  As Joe Johnson continues to be relevant in the NBA today, the guy the Celtics picked at #11 behind him, definitely isn't.  This week in What The Hell...

Former Celtics dominate Kentucky alumni game

Ok "dominate" might be a slight exaggeration, but former Celtics Antoine Walker, Walter McCarty, and Tony Delk were in full effect during the Kentucky alumni game. Rajon Rondo (and Ron Mercer) didn't attend for some reason, but who needs Rondo when you have Delk dishing sweet passes to McCarty for dunks. Here are some more 'Toine highlights. And since someone...

My old Kentucky Home: visiting with Tony Delk

What are they doing? Where are they now? What are they up to? These are the many questions that are twirling around in the minds of those loyal University of Kentucky fans about the very basketball players they had once admired, cheered on and watched play ball for many years. I had the chance to visit with one of those heroes, 1996 NCAA title winner, Tony Delk.

1996 Kentucky vs. 2012 Kentucky

1996 Kentucky vs. 2012 Kentucky There have been a lot of comparisons between the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats and the 1996 Kentucky Wildcats that both won the national title. On the surface both teams were stacked with NBA Talent and were expected to win it all that season. Let’s take a closer look and see if this comparison actually makes sense by looking at the rosters. 1996 Kentucky...
