The Boston media has to be the worst at covering their team. For the past week, the Globe has posted virtually nothing. They better cover the team a little more if they expect people to pay for their online content. The Herald has been posting articles, but about other teams, nothing about the Celtics. There are a couple of tidbits here and there that are worth mentioning, though.
In other Celtics news, the long-awaited Marquis Daniels trade still isn’t official, as the C’s and Pacers search for a third team to facilitate the process.
Danny Ainge expects things to be resolved by next week, when Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace gets back from vacation.
So, Danny expects the Daniels situation to be resolved when Chris Wallace gets back from vacation. Somehow, this makes sense. If Chris Wallace could be talked into signing Vin Baker and also to give away Paul Gasol for virtually nothing, Danny certainly should be able to talk him into taking Tony Allen off his hands. Since Memphis is under the cap, they could take Tony and Indiana could get a trade exception without having to take on more salary, and Daniels would get a contract over the LLE. Most importantly, Danny gets to keep the LLE to try to lure in a point guard, whether now or during the season. It makes sense. More details as they become available. Jeff over on CelticsBlog posted that this may or may not be a joke so take it with a grain of salt, but it just makes so much sense.
Ray Allen is really a very good person as well as a great basketball player. If you are on Twitter, you should follow him. He has some very inspirational things to say in his tweets like this:
How do we keep ourselves out of temptuous situations. Surround yourselves with good people. Those that want great things for you
good morning..have you guys ever tried p90x..its a great workout..im gonna do it this morning
I just finished plyometrics on the p90x. It was great. It's not difficult. It just works your small muscles. The plyos ands abs r my fav
Goung for a run now I'm gonna be in the best shape of my life. Who cares to join me
Wow! Ray has always been in a great shape and if he plans to be in the best shape of his life, that has to get every Celtic fan even more excited for the season to start. I'm getting giddy already.
Oh, and Ray shared a picture of his ride with us. Nice!!!
Shelden Williams seems like a really nice guy. He tries to answer every tweet sent to him. He has been splitting his time between working out, attending Candace's Sparks games, and fishing as can be seen in this photo he posted on Twitter of a bass he caught.
Finally, Marquis Daniels apparently hasn't been just sitting around twiddling his thumbs while waiting for the deal with the Celtics to be finalized. Apparently, he got married and has been on his honeymoon as this Tweet says:
enjoying my honeymoon with my wife, lifes good im great clap ya hands 2x if u relate.......run tell that blogger.....LOL get a life
Ok, Marquis. I admit that I don't have a life, but don't rub it in. And in other news, Stephon Marbury is still broadcasting over on StarburyTV.
BTW, my home computer was stuck on an old post of yours. Not sure what was going on. I was wondering why you weren't posting your daily links. Turns out my computer was just stuck on one of your old posts.
