The Daily Ubuntu is a collection of Celtics-related news and columns from around the intarwebs, just so that you keep in touch with our favourite green team.
This is pretty fun – check out the Celtics’ Hipstamatic gallery. Not everyone’s inside though, Rondo and KG are visibly absent.
John Karalis (from Red’s Army) writes about his five reasons to feel positive about the Celtics on Sheridan Hoops. Great read, sums the situation up very nicely.
CSNNE has a tidy little pile for you, courtesy of Jimmy Toscano:
- Garnett – Rondo is limitless. KG talks about his growing friendship with Rondo (he calls him Shorty) all these years and the potential Rondo has within him.
- Celtics set for their overseas adventure. Pretty self-explanatory, and I’m really looking forward to the results of this Europe trip – Ubuntu time anyone?
- Rivers has Celtics working on small ball early in camp. More signs the C’s are working on small ball lineups. The HEAT is the main stumbling block they will have to run through this season, and having an effective small ball lineup against the flying death machine is the way to go.
- Celtics’ Wilcox sits out practice; Sixers’ Bynum to miss time. Doc says there’s nothing to worry about in Wilcox’s case (fingers crossed), but Bynum is a bit of a question mark at this point. If his knees gives way, the Sixers are sure going to have fun this season. They basically lose a swingman in Iggy, and get nothing out of it because Bynum’s out of action.
Here’s a video of Jason Terry having fun in Boston. Giving out headbands, signing autographs, learning the lingo and just being everywhere. I love the guy’s exhuberance and energy. (via CelticsLife)
NOC looks like a fun bunch of people, they had Iman Shumpert smashing an iPhone 5 to bits in his experiment to use it as a basketball – bloody hilarious, and Shumpert’s new afro is just woah.
Dooling’s retirement left the C’s without a secondary ball handler but according to Greg Payne, Doc says there’s no need to worry about this. He’s raving about JET being a good point, but I would prefer JET to stay as an off-ball guard so that he can focus on scoring though. Let’s see how this situation forms up, it’s still too early to predict any kind of visible impact it’ll have on the bench unit.
This isn’t exactly today’s news, but still a great read for those who were not totally obsessed with the off season. Chris Forsberg writes about the journey and struggles that finally got Courtney Lee into Boston. I for one had already given up hope of signing Lee, considering the budget issues we had. The fact that Lee’s part of the team now only bears further testament to Danny’s prowess, and bolsters the guard lineup to a degree we have never had for the past seasons.
Here’s something interesting to round off today’s post:
This came from Rondo’s Facebook page, as candid as it gets.
Paul Pierce posted the same photo on his Twitter account with this:
And we r off to Istanbul ill holla
No prizes for guessing their destination.
That’s all for today folks, have fun and I’ll see you soon.
