Celtics-Hawks Summer League Open Thread!

Hi from Las Vegas. Brian Robb and I are here to report on the games and learn what pai gow is. Boston will face the Hawks on NBA TV at 4 ET, so here’s your open thread.

Stuff to watch out for:

-Dionte Christmas is playing for the Celtics in Vegas, despite chatter that he was going to run for Houston. He looked awesome in practice yesterday in a Summer League environment where almost nobody looks awesome.

-Fab Melo is learning how to play NBA defense on the fly, which was an adventure in yesterday’s practice and should continue to be an adventure today.

-Kris Joseph has shot well so far, but his roster spot is definitely not a foregone conclusion. Every game is pretty big for him.

We’ll be around with more analysis later.

  • High Rollers

    An adventure. Lol.

  • Phil

    Yay more summer league coverage! I got really sad when the blog just stopped talking about Orlando summer league.

  • Anthony

    I think I may have undersold on Fab Melo a little bit. He's quite athletic and looks like he will be a great teammate. We all know his bread and butter is shotblocking buthe's made several nice passes in these games. He's looking very spry, I must say. Hopefully with the rest of the summer league and preseason, he can develop in a regular contributor.

    Hopefully Kris Joseph can make the team but what's up with JJJ?

  • Danny Ainge

    I got too distracted by the Paul Pierce picture to read the article.

  • Great paintings! This is the type of information that are supposed to be shared around the web. Disgrace on Google for now not positioning this put up higher! Come on over and talk over with my site . Thanks =)
