Know the Opponent: Boston Celtics


Meet the Boston Celtics!

#42 Tony Allen- While some are notorious for breaking backboards with thunderous dunks, Tony once shattered the glass during practice with a routine jumpshot.

#4 Ryan Gomes- Ryan speaks fluent Klingon.

#5 Gerald Green- In Gerald's home state of Texas, "Greenery" is a petty crime described as "jumping over unsuspecting pedestrians".

#7 Al Jefferson- Al's favorite pre-game snack is a mule.

#41 Michael Olowokandi- Michael's offseason weightlifting regimen includes grocery shopping and "Twister".

#43 Kendrick Perkins- The Celtics organization does not invite Kendrick to charity events anymore because he makes the sick children cry.

#34 Paul Pierce- In an unreleased Sports Illustrated survey of the whole NBA, Paul was voted the league's "Least Huggable" player.

#0 Leon Powe- Leon's high-fives can produce Richter Scale readings of up to 7.

#50 Theo Ratliff- In a "Weekend at Bernie's"-esque scenario, the Celtics have taken to dressing Theo's corpse in a warmup jacket and sitting it on the bench during games.

#12 Allan Ray- On Halloween, Allan startles trick-or-treaters by popping out his eyeball when he answers the door.

#9 Rajon Rondo- Rajon impresses his teammates by palming their cars.

#44 Brian Scalabrine- Like Shaq and Ray Allen before him, Brian has branched out into acting. He skips occasional practices to tape episodes of "The War at Home".

#55 Wally Szczerbiak- After basketball, Wally plans to reach out to underprivileged kids by founding the "Wally Szczerbiak Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good".

#30 Sebastian Telfair- In 2004, Sebastian was a fun-loving high school student with a budding career in film, theater, and dance. He landed his first role in the basketball drama "Through the Fire". In a bizarre event of confusion, the Portland Trailblazers, enamored with Sebastian's compelling performance, mistook the film for a documentary and drafted him in the first round. Befuddled, but pleasantly surprised with the money, Sebastian has been "playing" professional basketball ever since.

#13 Delonte West- Delonte solicits haircare advice from teammate Brian Scalabrine.

And those are your Boston Celtics. Game thread coming tomorrow.

Wow. I love these, and politely applaud your tremendous achievement. Normally, I wouldn't comment, but I just wanted to say that theres a certain Golden State Warrior it might be best to avoid in your next one of these...

How bout I let you write Barnes' when the time comes? You can write some flowery prose in his honor.

Haha, I love the image of Rondo palming Escalades and Cayenne Turbos. The kid is a physical freak - not only his hands but his arms too. In the last game he was on the break and sort of faked a behind-the-back pass with his right hand by wrapping it around his back and then dropping the ball back by his right thigh and kept dribbling downcourt. Had he finished the lay-up, that play would have at least gotten some attention.

Oh well, the Knicks will see him soon enough. I predict a sloppy game that the Celts will pull out in front of the home fans - particularly if D.Lee is still in a suit.

Keep up the good work Seth.

ah yes, gotta love the wally-zoolander relationship. i dont know where he gets his hair gel, but that shit's gotta be strong enough to withstand all the sweating of taking weak-ass jump shots all day.

Doc Rivers: once shot a man in Reno just to see if it helps his unreliable substitution patterns

The Bonafied Boy said...
