Glen “Big Baby” Davis led the Magic to a season opening win over the Nuggets last night. Yes, you read that right. Davis was not the only former Celtic to come out swinging. Now, just because the Celtics are 0-2 and have looked real bad in those 2 games, I’m not saying they need any of these guys back. They all weren’t great, but here is a look at what former Celtics did Around The NBA last night.
Glen Davis, Magic (29 points, 10 rebounds in win)
E-Twaun Moore, Magic (13 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists off bench)
Gerald Green, Pacers (7 points, 4 rebounds, starting in place of Danny Granger)
Nate Robinson, Bulls (16 points, 5 rebounds, 12 assists off the bench in a win)
Ray Allen, Heat (5 points, 3 assists, -13 in loss) Well, they all didn’t play well.
Sasha Pavlovic, Trail Blazers (23 minutes off bench, didn’t do much, but 6th most time for Portland)
Kendrick Perkins, Thunder (started in win, scoreless, 3 boards)
Greg Stiemsma, T-Wolves (9 points, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks off bench in a win)
Rasheed Wallace, Knicks (3 points, 1-1 3FG, 0 technicals in return in Knicks win)
Jermaine O’Neal, Suns (0 points, 4 rebounds, 3 fouls in 12 mins) He did play for the Celtics, as much as you all want to forget it.
Ryan Hollins, Clippers (2 points, 2 rebounds off bench in win)
Tony Allen, Grizzlies (starter, 6 points, 3 rebounds in win)
And of course…
JaJuan Johnson (#1 overall pick in the D-League Draft by the Fort Wayne Mad Ants…)
