Stop the Presses! Celtics beat Bobcats!

I have to say, I am not feeling this Celtic team at all. The only
reason the C's even made it to overtime was Paul Pierce deciding to
take over down the stretch and make 4 straight hoops to build a lead
with 1:30 remaining. That cushion was quickly eclipsed and then the
C's played for overtime, winning on a last second shot.

Also too, for someone as highly touted as Rajon Rondo has been in the
local media, how the hell does he get a DNP-CD last night? Somebody
explain this to me. Unless Rondo did something that warranted a
benching (late for shoot around, grabbed a dancer's ass, etc.). This
just says to me that the C's have a lot of young, decent players.
Great role players, but no legit NBA starters to make you better.

It's going to be a long season.

Other Reviews are in on Hakim Warrick

From the Sportsguy's latest list-o-rama on the first week of the NBA:

4. Hakim Warrick
Wait, so an excellent college player with big-game experience went a
few spots too low in the NBA draft and turned out to be a good pro?
You're kidding!!! This never happens!!!! I can't believe it!!!!!

I was so high on this guy, and he's starting to show why he's a legit
NBA player. Maybe when he's a free agent Boston can sign him, and
then Gerald Green can carry his bags. If Green is still in the league
by then.

The end of the one finger era

Remind me again why Danny Ainge took Gerald Green over Hakim Warick, a
blue chipper with championship credentials? Was it because Green had
one finger? WAs it because the Celtics needed somebody who could dunk
in warmups like Kedrick Brown could? I can understand that, but
really, Green played 2 minutes last night. It's his second year. He
should be earning more court time if he's any good. Especially on a
team like the Celtics who don't have much talent beyond Paul Pierce.
