Bang… there’s an official predicition right off the bat. No teasing you… no games…. Boom. Spurs in 6. Hell… it was going to be Spurs in 5… but I gave the Cavs an extra game because of this dumb 2-3-2 format. Now that that is out of the way….
Corey Brewer and Al Thornton will be in town today to work out for the Celtics. RedsArmy.com is expected to have video and interviews from those guys sometime this evening… so be sure to come back later for that.
Local boy David Blatt apparently won’t be joining the Celtics after all.
And Celtics.com has a big article on Tony Allen’s rehab (photo from Celtics.com’s article)
I love that picture. It looks like something a parent uses to carry a baby around… which is about how careful Tony needs to be with that knee of his. Tony says it’s going well, and that he’ll be ready to join his teammates for training camp. I don’t know if you guys understand how amazing that would be. Then again… Shaun Livingston damn near tore his leg in half and he’s apparently playing in charity softball games.
From Draft Express: The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported yesterday that the Atlanta Hawks headed to Los Angeles to take in a workout featuring Yi Jianlian. We’ve learned that Danny Ainge of the Boston Celtics was present for an identical one-on-none workout the day before.
And man am I glad this F’ing mess is over. Billy Donovan is, in fact, officially no longer with the Magic. Yesterday’s news conference turned into a whole lot of waiting for a statement to be released. And after all that, Stan Van Gundy told the Kings no…. and he’ll coach Orlando after all… and Miami will get a second round pick for it. His mustache is still a candidate in Sacramento.
Ready for rumors?
Don’t say I didn’t tell you that Seattle is about to get REALLY good. How about Chris Paul to the Sonics? | Blazers looking to trade up for Thornton | You won’t see a blockbuster trade with the Bulls unitl AFTER the trade. | Is Jordan killing the Bobcats by only hiring his friends?
