KG: "It was fun to get back out there with the guys, go through some drills and compete...I'm trying to be patient with it."
KG: "It went well today. I thought Doc was trying to kill me for a little bit, but first day of camp, being my 15th (year), it went well."
KG practiced for the first 75 percent of today's session according to Doc.
Michael Sweetney is the 16th man in the Celtics preseason camp. He knows that it will be very difficult to crack the Celtics rotation and make the team, but if he doesn't, he is hoping to catch the eye of another team in the process. Sweetney said he's been around the team for a month or so, and he expects this team to win it all.
"I've never seen a brotherhood [like this before], how everybody's together off the floor and on the floor," Sweetney said. "On the floor, you see guys competing so hard, and when they leave the floor they don't take it with them. I've just never seen anything like that. It's a great organization to be in."
Of course he has only been on the Knicks and Bulls so he doesn't have much to pick from, but the fact that he sees this in the Celtics is great. Ubuntu is in full effect again this season. This is going to be such a fun season! I can't wait for it to start!
In other news, after saying how happy he was to be back with the Cavs and how excited he was to start the season, Delonte West didn't show up for their first practice. I really feel for him as I know he is battling his inner demons and now on top of the weapons charges, he is going to have problems with the team as well. I still like Delonte and pray that he can get himself under control before he hurts himself or someone else.
