Not a lot out there today on the Celtics. Rondo has a new blog up at Yardbarker and is in Atlanta and will get back to Boston after the holiday to get back to work. On Celtics Blog, Jeff is asking about Tony's numbers at point guard. I am not sure what Danny saw, but I don't remember any stellar play by Tony at the point. I do remember Tommy saying many times that Tony is good as long as he doesn't have to dribble more than once. It certainly is odd that Danny keeps touting Tony as a PG when in reality, he wasn't that good.
Hoopsvibe asks who should start at PG, Ray Allen or Rondo. Rondo is our starting PG. Ray will be a good back up when Rondo is on the bench, but he is much better suited to playing shooting guard. The Herald tells us that Doc and Francona share a mutual admiration.
Much of the news today centers on the USA Team who won the gold in Vegas yesterday. Gold in '08 is the goal of team USA. Chicago Tribune tells us that these stars have earned their stripes. Oregon Live talks about Nate McMillan and the defense on the USA team.
No Blood No Foul reports that the Suns still have no help for Nash. Seems like there are a few stars around who needed help and didn't get it. There is even talk of Kobe not showing for training camp since the Lakers still haven't gotten him any help. Paul Pierce should feel very lucky to have gotten not one but 2 all stars to help him this next season.
29 days until training camp... less than a month now. We have had some players in Boston all summer and the rest should be here within the next couple of weeks. Exciting times lie ahead.
