Hard Cap NBA: The Boston Celtics

A change of scenery was all Glen Davis needed

For the second straight game, the Celtics squared off against a recent trade partner, last night facing the Orlando Magic.  Glen Davis and Von Wafer were swapped for Brandon Bass before last season by Danny Ainge.  In a move that most Celtic’s fans can unanimously agree was a positive move for the future of the Celtics, it also appears to be a good move for Big Baby (via The...

All About 18: Brandon Bass

As training camp dawns upon us, All About 18 turns its attention to the Celtics’ incumbent starting 4, Brandon Bass.  Acquired in December 2011 for Big Baby Davis and Von Wafer, the hulking Bass debuted on Christmas Day in high gear for Boston with 20 points and 11 rebounds off the bench (second only to Rondo’s 31-point, 13-assist, 5-board effort) in a 104-106 opening...

POTD 1/23/12: JaJuan Johnson On Von Wafer

JaJuan Johnson has scored seven baskets in his young NBA career.  I’ve seen two of the seven, both of which were dunks… and fairly nasty ones at that.  One of the five that I haven’t seen was also a dunk,  so that means 42.8% of his scores (excluding freethrows) come on throw downs.  That’s a pretty solid ratio for a young forward.  Keep it up, JaJuan! Be sure to pause...

After nine long months, Wizards finally get a win

It was exactly nine months ago that the Wizards watched Von Wafer, then with the Boston Celtics, embarrass himself by missing a dunk and unwittingly celebrating so hard that he bumped into Jermaine O’Neal and created a turnover.

Bench Holds It Steady In Sacramento

They were rested enough to take control of the game late. The energy had been provided, the lift been given.

This seemed like a game where the Magic would fold against an energetic and aggressive Kings team willing...
