Lee gets crash course on Heat rivalry – ESPN Boston
Head coach Doc Rivers hasn’t been bashful about putting Miami on the minds of his players, and Lee — in all likelihood the team’s starting shooting guard on Tuesday — is prepped for his matchup with Wade. He already has his plan for defending Miami’s all-star guard.
“Just trying to make everything tough on him, as far as just trying to deny the ball out far, getting into him on pick-and-roll coverages, and then taking away his right-to-left crossover,” Lee said. “He loves to do that and reject pick-and-rolls, so just try to play hard defense on him, especially without fouling, and keep him off the free throw line.”
It sure looks like Lee is well-prepped on defending Wade, I’m pretty sure that he will start the game on the season opener. Everyone is getting pumped up, are you?
Jeff Green is UNDERPAID – Yes you read that right – CelticsLife
Mike D explains why he thinks Green is underpaid (in comparison to all the other overpaid stars out there). Having seen the preseason performance so far, I would tend to agree that Green is worth his salary, but underpaid? That remains to be seen. I’ll hop on the underpaid bandwagong when Green starts lockdown defense on Melo and LeBron like his life depends on it.
Some body of work – Boston Herald
Interesting writeup on Sully, about his upbringing and the way his dad taught him to post up the good old fashioned way, something that’s not very popular with players these days. Read.
That’s all for today folks, have fun and I’ll see you soon.
