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.
Individual game tickets for all Celtics home games for the 2010-11 season go on sale today at 11 a.m. A limited number of seats are available.
Fans may purchase tickets by logging on to Celtics.com, by calling 1-800-4NBATIX or by visiting the TD Garden box office. Tickets start at $10.
There is a four-ticket limit per game per customer, and a two-ticket limit on all $10 seats.
I know how impossible it is to get through… so I wish you all luck. You'll need a team of people to have a chance. My advice is to pick out who you'd take to a game now, and have that person or those people all call at the same time so your chances increase. If it's just you hoping to get a few tickets to the Heat game, you're gonna be fighting scalpers with a dozen or more people working the phones.
In other news, the C's have invited a few more people to camp:
The Boston Celtics have extended training camp invites to former UMass product Stephane Lasme, Southern Indiana's Jamar Smith, and LSU's Chris Johnson, according to a league source.
If any of the trio elects to camp in Boston, they would be considered longer shots to make a roster that's already bursting at the seams with 15 players under contract for the 2010-11 season (not including Tony Gaffney and Oliver Lafayette, who boast non-guaranteed contracts), but could add depth and competition when the Celtics open camp on Sept. 28. in Waltham.
The C's are gonna end up having enough people to run 2 full squad scrimmages in camp before this is all over. It's also going to be interesting to see who actually accepts invites. Matt Janning got an invite but passed to head to Phoenix because he has a much better chance at making their roster. When you're chasing an NBA dream, you go where you think you can play, not where you think you might sit at the end of the bench… regardless of how good the team is. You want to prove something and make a little cash.
