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?

thirstyboots18: KO started tonight. I really don't care for him...he is to careless with the ball, and when it is in hands with his back to the basket he freezes...handing it off in a hurry to the first person to get close enough to him.

thirstyboots18: I think KO is talented, also AB is talented, someone must want them for a decent trade.

eja117: I am NOT used to the idea that we will be in the "cellar" for "years".

thirstyboots18: hi, eja. We may not be? I hope!

thirstyboots18: I have hope that Rondo, Sully, Zeller and Smart will turn in to a good base...and we can pick up a star through trade. Zeller has looked good in limited minutes. I am waiting for the 20 game rule to make final predictions.
