Your First Look At Training Camp


The C’s have commenced their first session of the year down in Newport RI, going at it for a hard three hours. There have been a number of requests to us here at the site on finding a way to watch the festivities.

With an online broadcast failing to be an option, we give you the next best thing, our man Chris Forsberg from ESPNBoston.com giving us the latest on-court action and interviews. A few items of note via his Twitter account:

* Particpants for the day included non-roster invitees Mario West (SG). Jamar Smith (6-3 rookie), Stephane Lasme (6-8, NBDL defensive player of the year).

* Chris Johnson, a 6-11 shotblocker out of LSU who played overseas last year was present at camp and is expected to participate later this week.

* Unsurprisingly, Doc Rivers says the team needs to work on conditioning. That’s what one of the most veteran-laden teams in NBA history will get you.

* Delonte West was the last guy on the floor shooting. He will miss the first ten games of the season.

* First unit consisted of usual four suspects, with a rotating of Shaq and Jermaine at the 5 spot. Second unit was Nate, Marquis, Baby, West and Semi Erden.

* Ending on a bright spot, via the Celtics twitter account, Doc called KG “phenomenal and explosive.” on his first day in action.

Video after the jump

  • I love Green

    Oh my god…best 39 seconds of the offseason.

    Now if only I could tell who most of those guys were.

  • Zain

    Hah, Shaq setting a pick for Nate on Rondo only to have KG at his heels and no where to go.

  • Zain

    Interesting to see Harangody on the floor with all the vets so early.

  • cos

    Interesting to see Shaq not get past the top of the key on that fast break by the first team. Just might be problem.

  • Sweeney

    C’mon guys. You are really able to spot problems in a 39 second video. You all need help…hahahahah

  • I love Green

    This is great. Been watching it all day.

  • K.C.

    Good sign if KG was explosive as Doc said. I would have been ok with last year. Would be nice if he played like he was 5 years younger, but that’s probably wishful thinking. Go C’s.

  • Ouvert

    Wow. That was some half-assed, ragged ball. Looked like the Y pickup game.

  • Ultra-Humanite

    We can only hope that the king of the trillion will earn a roster spot.

  • Rangatiratanga

    I had a moment of clarity last night…..our bench is the deepest,toughest,roughest,rugged,strongest and undoubtedly the best in the league.I’m not getting cocky or over confident about it, but it hit me like, a good feeling, a very very good feeling.

  • I love Green

    Just saw this quote for the first time today, not sure if its new or not:

    “The newest superstar member of the Celtics has given up his mom’s hamburgers, fried chicken, mac and cheese and cornbread muffins and is ripped and ready to go for his 18th season in the NBA.”

    Shaq baby! HE’S READY! He’s lean, he’s mean, he’s….THE LEADER OF THE BOSTON BENCH MOB!!

  • BlahblahblahMarquisDaniels

    not to be a downer… but Shaqs missed rebound at the end was pretty pathetic

    heck… i could have gotten that rebound and im 5’9′

  • Tom W

    hahahaha. nice hands shaq.

  • ilaykarabay
