This is interesting. The first part of the year, it was Walker who was sent to the D League and Giddens got the early short stints on the court. Now, Giddens is on his way to Maine and it was Walker who was in the game vs the Pistons. It's hard to figure out where these two guys stand with the team, especially since the Celtics didn't pick up JR's option and word is, he was offered to NY for Nate. But then, it was JR who got the start and playing time when Pierce was out. Curiouser and Curiouser.
Well I saw Giddens laughing it up with someone with less than a minute left in Wednesday's loss, which is never a good thing. At a preseason game I was at I also saw Giddens not paying attention in the huddle. Not saying that the laughing incident on Wednesday caused the demotion... just pointing it out. Interesting to read on the Globe's Celtics Blog that Gary Washburn was making the case that it's not fair to send Giddens down and pointing out how statistically he's outperformed Scalabrine. Seemed odd for a beat guy to go there. Ok I'm making no sense. Half asleep.
It's also interesting to note that apparently it was Giddens who was proposed to be sent to NY for Nate Robinson. Maybe the team had him playing to showcase him. Remember when he even started in a game? Wasn't it around the time Robinson was in D'Antoni's doghouse?
Maybe NY has said NO to this proposal and the team is back to demoting Giddens...
And finally, who else thinks there's a chance that he is cut if he is not traded before the deadline?

masterpo: I want to see lots of David Lee playing time against his old teammates ...pound it into the paint ...play an usual defense....try bit of full court press whenever you get the chance....

masterpo: Cannot get caught up in three point shoot out with this team. They are # 1 in 3 point % and we are in the bottom rung of teams for 3 pt %. We are already taking too many 3 point shots..because absolutely suck at it.

masterpo: It's weird that the Celtics are near the top of the league in offensive rebounds and yet near the bottom in defensive rebounding. I have to think about that a bit. Any idea?

thirstyboots18: This Celtics team is a special group! That said, Rondo is still one of the most fun PGs to watch...
