I didn't think it could get any slower as far as Celtics' news but today hits a new low. Nothing in any of the Boston newspapers. Here are the few things I found today.
JB gives his top 5 plus a sleeper pick over on Celtics Blog. I don't agree with him at all as far as trading Durant away. This kid has all the markings of a very special player. The PG from Finland that he mentions is interesting and worth taking with our 2nd round pick. We need a point guard. Seems like we have been saying that forever now. We thought we had it with Telfair and Rondo. Rondo worked out and will be our starting PG for years to come but Telfair just didn't fit. So we need another PG to back up Rondo. It's about time we cash in on the European players that are making impacts everywhere else in the league. In my opinion we take Oden or Durant if they are available and Yi if they are not.
Ryan over at Hoops Addict has posted his mock draft. As of now, everyone has the Celtics picking 2nd but no mocks can be really taken seriously until we know where everyone picks after the lottery.
Can Danny discusses the freshmen who have declared for the draft. They had to do their one year of college because of the new rule, but did they prove anything in that year? It is interesting that Noah was considered a top 3 pick last year and this year has dropped much further down. This piece covers 7 of these players and discusses the merits of their decision to declare.
MySA.com reports that the NBA is looking into yet another allegation that Bruce Bowen is a dirty player and his actions could injure other players. This time, it was the knee to the thigh on Steve Nash last night. I don't like dirty players and if they determine that he is indeed trying to injure other players, he should be suspended. Players have been getting hurt too much as it is without someone trying to cause those injuries.
8 days until the lottery and I am a basket case. I want the lottery to get here so we know for sure where we pick. The suspense is killing me. But on the other hand, I don't want it to come because at least now I have hope that we will get the top pick but I am afraid to hope that we do because history has been very unkind to us in the lottery. Anyone else having these mixed feelings?
