Well… now you won’t have to worry much about that anymore. The Celtics have a full, 15 player roster now… and we know they can only activate 12. Scot Pollard is out… and Gabe Pruitt is in the D-League… which leaves one more “inactive” spot that needs to be filled on a daily basis. And Scal can see what’s coming:
“I’m just going to continue to do what I need to do to be ready to play,” he said. “That’s all I can do. But bringing in these two guys gives us a better chance to win a championship, so it doesn’t matter for Brian Scalabrine. It doesn’t matter if I’m playing or not playing. If this puts us in a better position to win, then that’s great for the Celtics. That’s how I feel about it. We’re doing something special, and some people are going to have to make sacrifices. That’s just the way it is. It’s business.”
I like Scal. I like his attitude and I like the fact that he’s always giving everything he has. He’s the obvious choice for the “inactive” spot… and he knows it. I’ll bet nothing changes about him in practice, though. The one thing that has changed… is the names on the roster. But Doc knows… names mean nothing.
“You can fall in love with names,” Rivers said. “I fall in love with productivity. As far as depth, our names are good. We have to mesh as a group. If we do that, then we’re deep.”

Just a heads up… I’ve agreed to take part in Hardwood Paroxysm’s Kobe Bryant Blog Day … for some ungodly reason. I’ve been told to actually say good things about Kobe Bryant… and there’s no backing out now. That’s happening tomorrow… I’ll be vomiting violently until then.
