Internet Notes: Lester Hudson and Len Bias

 

Picture 31Just a couple of Celtics-related things I wanted to make sure reach as many people’s eyes as possible.

• First, the guys at CelticsTown have the second part of their interview with Lester Hudson, and damn if these interviews don’t make you root for the kid. At the very least, it makes you want the Celtics to give him the 15th roster spot—a meaningless spot anyway, in all likelihood—instead of spending cash on someone like Antonio Daniels, who can’t shoot and hasn’t defended opposing point guards well since 2007 or earlier. 

The interview also makes the Celtics sound like a fine bunch of guys to play some hoops with. Here are two short excerpts (short because the whole thing is worth your mouse click and read):

 But everybody has impressed me with how hard they compete. Everybody is out there competing, trying to work hard, fighting for everything. When we play pickup, we sometimes have one of our managers play because we don’t have enough. Even then, guys are going after the manager like he’s Paul or Ray or KG. It doesn’t matter who any of these guys play against, they’re going to be out on that court battling to win. There’s no such thing as lackadaisical with these guys.

I love the idea of Rasheed Wallace rejecting the freaking manager’s jump shot into the bleachers—and then laughing in his face about it. 

And here’s Hudson on fitting in with a star-studded group:

I’m full of confidence, but sometimes I’ve been too passive. Playing with the Big Three and all these other guys, you know you can just give them the ball and get out of the way, and something good will probably happen. But you have to stay aggressive, you have to make sure the defense plays you to make it easier for everybody else. And the guys all tell me when I’m too passive, when I should take a shot or make a play rather than just swing the ball.

Sounds like a nice, nurturing environment for a young guy (who, at 25, isn’t really that young).

• Finally, we should all be looking forward to Nov. 3, when a new documentary about Len Bias, entitled Without Bias, airs on ESPN. Some journalists, friends and family attended a couple of pre-release screenings in Washington, D.C. last week, and the early reviews make the film sound very interesting, according to FanHouse. It’s partly an examination of Bias’s life, the push for ultra-strict drug laws after his death and his family’s fight to recover from tragedy. (And more tragedy—I had forgotten that Len Bias’s younger brother, Jay, was shot and killed four years after Bias’s death). 

The film also examines the trial of the man accused of selling Bias the cocaine that killed him. Unpleasant stuff, no doubt, but it will be a solid watch .
