Giddens is Getting Noticed

Chuck - Red's Army October 16, 2009 Uncategorized 6 Comments on Giddens is Getting Noticed

Since the night he was drafted, there hasn't been a reason for the media to speak with J.R. Giddens. Until now. The second year swingman opened a lot of eyes with his hustle play (13 rebounds) in Tuesday night's game against New Jersey:

“I know I have to defer offensively and play well defensively,” he
said. “I’ll have to keep making plays for other people to stay out
there. If you want to play, it’s really not that hard.”

“J.R. was unbelievable with his energy. He’s definitely made a
difference with his rebounding. And that’s part of his role on this
team,” said Doc Rivers.

If Giddens continues to play this hard in the preseason, he has a chance to steal Tony Allen's minutes. But outside of garbage time, you're talking 3-5 minutes per game.

I'm going to the Celtics open practice tonight in Lowell with video camera in hand. You can expect lots of clips from the session.

    When Giddens DOES take TAs minutes they will not be stolen.. they’ll be earned. TA is a lost case.

    Giddens absolutely earned his minutes. Ainge should trade TA for a draft pick or anything (can of warm beer) now before he does something stupid.
    Looking forward to the practice video Chuck
    In case you guys missed it on NBA tv here is the short 6 min version of the Celtics season preview.

    It would be amazing if you can record the whole game and upload the movie clip on or
    People (especially Celtics blogs) will shit their pants for that download file.

    I think Giddens could get more time than one would guess. The reason is that Daniels has not played a whole season in a few years.
    As for TA offer him AND a 2nd round pick for another teams 2nd rounder lol

  • G4L

    No one is going to trade TA for a 2nd round pick. The only way that was going to happen was if his stock rose & it hasn’t and wont so Danny just needs to get it over with and buy him out.
    If I may go johnesk here with an anology.. TA is like that not pretty but not ugly girl in highschool who is on the verge of being popular only because shes super flirtatious in public but when you go to close the deal she does nothing & rejects you! Point being TA is the talk of the town when he has his moments but he is a tease & always will be!
