I posted a story about three weeks ago about Daniels,and his return to Boston. This morning ESPN broke the story about Daniels,and his recovery.
From Chirs Forsberg:
A little less than six months after a scary on-court incident threatened his basketball career, former Celtics swingman Marquis Daniels has resumed workouts with the goal of returning to the NBA next season, according to his agent.
I'm a fan of Daniels,and I believe he could provide a solid option for the Celtics. The thing about Daniels that made him likeable? He wasn't full of personality,but you could see he was a good teammate,and in interviews you got the notion from the players that Marquis was a team guy. He wanted to be a Celtic from the start,and it would be a good story to see Marquis back in green. I wish the best for him.
"Marquis loved Boston, [coach] Doc [Rivers], and his teammates," said Bartelstein. "Those guys all visited him after his surgery and that meant a lot to him."
