Just add this story, courtesy of Jessica Camerato, to the list of reasons why I love the team dynamic.
The middle of the Celtics locker room always seems to be cluttered with a mass of rolling chairs, but rookies J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker have learned there aren’t enough to go around.
“Honestly I was looking for my jersey and then they were like, ‘Rookies got to share lockers,’” Giddens said.
Giddens and Walker will be lockermates until the Celtics cut the roster down to 15. For now they share space next to Darius Miles and Rajon Rondo.
To quote Jess when she told me about the story: “I guess the championship treatment is reserved for … well, the players who won the championship!”
