So we've been going nuts today with the Rasheed Wallace/Leon Powe stories… we almost overlooked the fact that Lester Hudson was in town today.
He did the whole 'hold up the jersey' thing (he'll wear #26)… he took (and made) a lot of jumpers in a few shooting drills… and he said all the right things.
"I'm fortunate to be drafted by the Boston Celtics," says Hudson. "I have a great opportunity."
"I'm gonna go out and play as hard as I can everyday," says Hudson.
"I'm a winner. I love to win," says Hudson
Meanwhile, the Celtics announced their full Orlando Summer League squad… which includes Mike Sweetney.. who ate his way out of the league:
“Mike’s trying to make a comeback,” said Danny Ainge. “He’s trying
to overcome some things happened in his personal life. He’s been
working out very hard, the last six or eight months for sure, and maybe
longer. He’s certainly a talented player, and proven he belongs in the
NBA. We’ll see if he can make a comeback.”
The rest of the roster includes Hudson, JR Giddens, Bill Walker, Gabe Pruitt, Nick Fazekas, Coby Karl, Chris Lofton, Bryan Mullins, Kevin Rogers, Bryce Taylor, Robert Swift and Darius Washington
