Sheed Good Fit For Celtics?

The Celtics will be better this season.

That’s now Guaransheed.

With the signature of forward Rasheed Wallace to a two-year contract for the mid-level exception, the Celtics will add a veteran and winner (see: Pistons, Detroit) to their bench.

I repeat: to their BENCH.

Plenty of teams this summer were looking to add Wallace as a starter.

There are many in basketball circles who also believe they’ve added a giant headache, too.

My guess is it’s not as painful as the one now felt in Cleveland, Orlando, and San Antonio – three top tier teams that were counting on a “Yes” from Sheed. That the Cavs, Magic, and Spurs were all interested in the services of Wallace tells you what the majority of the league still thinks of the guy.

Rasheed Wallace can still play, folks.

But can he play by the Celtics’ team-first rules?...

The Redheaded Utility Man

A Daily Babble Production

Last night's second round opener between the Magic and Celtics featured a lot that didn't make me happy. But in addition to leaving Applebee's (the only restaurant around here with tabletop audio) peeved about a 95-90 loss and the host of reasons it happened, I walked away thrilled yet again with the play of one Brian Scalabrine.

It's hard to believe that a year ago, this guy's best asset appeared to be his knack for the wildly entertaining celebratory press conference after earning a DNP-CD. It's nearly as hard to believe that three weeks ago, he continued to suffer the effects of post-concussion syndrome. Yet Scal gave the Celtics his third consecutive big effort off the bench last night, and this one was the best of the bunch.

The beginning of the Celtics' run to turn a 28-point rout back into a basketball game coincided with Scalabrine's arrival on the floor with eight and a half minutes to play in the third quarter. This was not accidental. After he had trouble defending Rashard Lewis in the first half, Scalabrine was assigned to guard Hedo Turkoglu for much of his second half stint. He responded by doing the best job playing defense with his feet that I can remember from him.

When the Magic began featuring Turkoglu as the point forward (and thus primary ball-handler), Scalabrine picked him up before halfcourt and ragged him all the way up the floor. He stayed low in his defensive stance and slid his feet exactly the way coaches teach their players at every level of this game across the globe. Defying his quickness deficiencies, Scal kept Turkoglu in front of him but managed to stay close enough to prevent him from using his hallmark jab-step-and-back move to create space on the perimeter. The Magic forward made exactly one field-goal over the game's final 20 minutes and just four trips to the line (he only converted one of those free throws). The redhead deserves plenty of credit for that as well as for doing a better job on Lewis the second time around.

NBA Dynasty Series - Boston Celtics - The Complete History

Over the past 50 years the Celtics have won an unprecedented 16 World Championships including 8 in a row from 1959-1966, making them the the most storied franchise in NBA history. This 5-disc special edition collector's set features the complete Boston Celtics history including year-end compilation programs highlighting the Championship seasons. Plus for the first time ever on DVD, the team's most memorable games in franchise history.

Boston Celtics: The Complete History recounts the glory days of the Celtics, and few have ever been more glorious. The franchise's Hall of Fame players and still-record 16 championships are revisited in a five double-sided-DVD combination of new and old documentaries and actual game footage.
The main documentary, The Celtics Dynasty (47 min.) tracks the team from the '50s through the '80s, and shorter vintage featurettes from the '70s and '80s (about 130 min. total) focus on the 1974 playoffs, the classic 1976 game against the Phoenix Suns that's often called the greatest NBA game ever, the renewed rivalry with the Lakers, and the 1986-87 team. Two NBA highlight films (55 min. each) summarizing the 1984 and 1986 seasons are less Celtic-centric but provide some memorable moments such as Ralph Sampson's miracle shot to beat the Lakers.
A postscript needs less than three minutes to discuss the highlights of the franchise since its last championship (1986) through 2004, from Reggie Lewis to Paul Pierce. (Interestingly, neither it nor the 1986-87 summary mentions the tragic death of Len Bias, who was the best hope to carry on the winning tradition from the Big Three.)

But that's all a prelude to the six complete games (plus one quarter) included in the set. It's a rare chance to see all-time great players such as Bill Russell, the Bird-Parish-McHale front line, and even a pre-TV-personality Bill Walton grabbing a key offensive rebound to remind everyone of the player he was before the injuries. It includes the aforementioned Phoenix Suns game, two games against the Magic-Kareem Lakers in 1984, a game against Houston's Twin Towers by the 1986 team that some call the best ever, and a 1987 game against Detroit that didn't lead to a championship but allowed Bird to create his own John Havlicek-esque moment.
