Pietrus Goes Through the Legs

 

If you don’t already know, Mickael Pietrus is quite the card.  When he first arrived in Boston, he told all of us in the locker room that we were going to go out for Caesar Salads when the Celtics won the Championship.  He even came up behind me, tapped me on the opposite shoulder so it looked like Jimmy Toscano had actually done it. Well, he was at it again last night.

You may have missed it, but there was an awesome string of plays where Pietrus hits a three on the offensive end and then, well, just watch:

It’s a little hard to see because Pietrus is in the background and the resolution is a bit small.  To recap, Pietrus gets picked by Jason Collins while trying to follow the curl, loses his balance and goes down.  Pietrus is no dummy.  He knows the shortest distance between two points is a straight line so he does the most efficient thing:  he crawls through Collins legs and gets back into the play.  He then proceeds to snag the defensive rebound.

I love when a player’s antics don’t negatively affect that player’s production.

Since we’re still talking playoff odds, Pietrus is essential to any hope the Celtics have to make a deep playoff run.  He plays with great energy, he rebounds really well for a guard, he can defend the SF or SG and he can hit threes.

And he provides much needed comedic relief.

    Love it!

    I love that guy, especially because he's sooo much fun. Yes, the fact that he does what he's supposed to do on the court is a big plus, but mostly, it's the fun thing.
    If you take out Shaq, and maybe Nate, the C's haven't exactly been a cheerful bunch in recent years. And while the bad guy look is fine with me, a bit of comic relief now and then doesn't hurt.

    Any chance someone can link the post game interview with Pietrus it was almost as good as the between the legs clip

  • yeah

    I didn't know Pietrus was a funny guy. I like him now. C's are all about having characters

    it's funny, i really didn't like Pietrus when he was with the Magic, but now i love the guy

    Totally unrelated to this article, but the Cavs waived Ryan Hollins today. It’d be great to get him & Hickson to shore up the front court. C’s get younger & more athletic up front and Rondo gets two more big running buddies in transition.
