Another slow news day for the Celtics. Even the blogs are on vacation so not a lot of Celtics news to report but a couple of things of general interest to note.
Newsday has one of several articles out there concerning Isaiah's plans to keep an eye on KG and JO and make a play for one or the other. I don't like the Knicks and don't want Isaiah getting one of those players. In fact, I don't like the idea of the Knicks getting better at all. Maybe if they have to give up enough to get one of them, it will even out. Look at what they gave up for Curry. They might trade their whole team for KG along with draft choices for the next 5 years. On second thought maybe it would be good for Isaiah to get an aging KG who will be over paid for years to come. I am not sure why but I have this strong dislike for the Knicks, the Bulls, and the Lakers and would love nothing better than to see them flounder. Unfortunately, the Bulls have been doing very well but the other two have been living down to expectations.
If you missed last night's show on CelticsStuff Live, you should check out the podcast. A lot of good stuff concerning the draft from Eric Weiss.
Real GM announces that the next round of awards are coming up with the All Rookie Teams to be announced tomorrow and the All NBA Teams on May 10. I doubt the Celtics will get much attention on both but there is a chance that Rondo could make the All Rookie team since he finished #9 on the Rookie Rankings.
SFGate has an interesting piece on how the Warriors have become a very tight knit group laughing and joking their way to a first round win over the Mavs. They eat together, go out together and go to movies together. They are trying to win for each other. Sounds a lot like the comraderie of the Celtics young players. Chemistry is often underrated. That is why I would like to see the Celtics keep their core group together. They have amazing chemistry off the court and it is going to show up on the court this season as they play together, just as it is for the Warriors.
