Where we stand right now

Where we stand right now

Giddens impresses in Orlando

Giddens impresses in Orlando

We keep looking for little glimmers of goodness from the typical pile of ugliness that is Summer League basketball.  It's understandable.  On the one hand, we've got us fans… who are desperately looking for any sign at all that guys like Gabe Pruitt, Lester Hudson, or Bill Walker have figured something out and will help [...]

Summer League basketball sucks

Summer League basketball sucks

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 [...]

Draft day is Ainge Day

Draft day is Ainge Day

The NBA draft is 18 days away, and the Celtics have what amounts to a throw-away pick at #58 overall (Minnesota has our #1 pick via the Garnett trade)… but don't expect Danny Ainge to do absolutely nothing.  As was noted in the Herald today, NBA Draft day is essentially Danny Ainge day.  Take a [...]

Reassessing: JR Giddens & Bill Walker

Reassessing: JR Giddens & Bill Walker

Chuck's Take: Expectations were low for Celtics rookie class of 2008. Good thing, because we got very little in return. Bill Walker is loaded with talent and potential. He has a bigger upside than 1st round pick J.R. Giddens. Walker didn't see much court time until KG went down in February. When he did take [...]
