Just a few things today that caught my attention. First, the Carnival of the NBA #48 is up over on Taking It to the Rack. Be sure to check it out. Lots of good reading there.
China Daily has a report on Pierce's trip to China. This is an interesting note from the article.
The former Boston Celtics star, who finished as the NBA's top scorer after leading Boston to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals in 2002, believes childhood street matches were the source of his inspiration.
The FORMER Celtics star? This may not bode well for the upcoming season.
Rondo was on the Dale and Holley show yesterday and you can listen to it here. Both SI.com and ESPN have articles on Reggie Miller still mulling his return over and not giving any hints.
The ref scandal is still garnering attention. A US Attorney is going to review the NBA officiating. Bill Russell talks about the Celtics and the ref scandal. And Philly.com tells us that Donaghy is ready to name the other refs involved in gambling.
Patterson said he would prefer to sign with Boston or Miami, and added he's not concerned about Hardaway signing with the Heat and Miller considering the Celtics. "It's going to be interesting," Patterson said. "Reggie is what, 41, 42? He's going to be just shooting threes, and he isn't going to be a 30- to 40-minute per night guy. "You look at those squads (Boston and Miami) -- where's the stopper? The energy guy? The defensive guy? That's me. I'm the only guy they're missing."
41 days till training camp. Still no Celtics news from the Boston papers. Hopefully they will wake up soon and give us some news on Tony Allen's rehab, the Celtics who are working out there every day, and what is going on with the team.
