MATT JANNING!!!!

…has signed a multi-year deal with the Phoenix Suns, as reported by NBA.com, and Zach Lowe could not be happier.  Mostly because no one will be lobbying for the Celtics to use their 15th roster on him but also because he doesn’t have to read to post I had been working on doing most of the aforementioned lobbying.

Good for Matt Janning.  The local product (Northeastern University by way of Minnesota) made name for himself this summer by playing well and showing no fear for the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns’ Summer League Teams.  It’s a good thing Phoenix nabbed him because it was doubtful he would have even accepted to invite to the Celtics training camp given the lack of available roster spots.  Janning will fit Phoenix really well with his outside shooting and surprising athleticism.

Janning will be the second player out of a smaller College Basketball program from the Northeast to make the successful jump to the NBA.  Former Harvard Crimson player Jeremy Lin made news a few weeks ago when the Golden State Warriors signed him to a multi-year deal as well.

    While we’re on the topic of “irrelevance”,i was watching a bit of an old school classic last week,White Men Can’t Jump.And i figured out where Rondo got his signature style one handed layup fake from,you know the one where he faked out Varejao and Parker in the 2nd round.Classic!!!!
    Anyway,i saw Wesley Snipes do that move and i immediately thought,”hey that’s Rondo’s move” or is it.

    Zero details here about the Shaq deal or even a basic acknowledgment that it even happened. What gives? This must have really struck some nerves at the hub. I’ve never seen this before on this site. Usually you guys are top notch & professional about every story—even the ones you don’t like.

    You guys normally are right there with in depth details. In the past, I could always just come here, but tonight I had to surf around to know what was going on. I mean espn.com has more info. than you guys on Shaq, & I’ve never seen that happen before when it comes to the Cs.

    Is Shaq taboo here now? Janning & Hughes are what you guys most want to write about?

    So exited about Shaq being with the C’s at the vets minimum. Shaq showed his commitment to win another one. When the game slows down in the post season his 15-20 minutes a night will be money.
