I was originally upset that I missed the first half of the first Celtics summer league game.  Then I realized that the camera angle you see in that screen grab is the only camera angle in the web broadcast.  From what I could gather… Gabe Pruitt did some good things… Mike Sweetney was pretty decent [...]
