Boston Celtics,and the NBA

Celtics Beat Post New Entry

Davis in shape,and Iverson in a Celtics uniform

Many other Celtic sites covered the two topics earlier. Now I will give my spin on the two topics.

Baby,and his weight issues

Davis says he's in great shape,and he's still going.

"I had to realize that the eating habits I grew up with aren’t good for me. What scares me the most — rest in peace — is the story of Robert ‘Tractor’ Traylor." Traylor, the late NBA forward who died of a heart attack in May, had a beefy 6-foot-8, 290-pound build, very similar to that of Davis. "Everything the article said, I felt they could have been talking about me," he said. "They said he was a loving, caring guy. That’s me. "I’m doing this not because I’m a free agent now, but because I’m trying to make a life change — just make a different life for myself. Food has been a way of entertainment for me, a comfort."

Davis has used his bulky build to his advantage,but losing weight would help Davis despite using his bulk as a strength. Davis can't use his length because he doesn't have any. So using his hustle,and determination with the weight loss could only help Davis. I hope the old Glen Davis comes back,and he should with a new role on this team after the Perkins era.

Allen Iverson Interested In The Boston Celtics

As for Iverson I wish him luck,but not in a Celtics uniform. I don't see a major need for him. Rondo will play the bulk of the minutes,and West will back Rondo up,and West will back up Allen as well. I'm assuming West comes back. The Celtics could always bring him in,and test it out,and cut him if he doesn't come back to help the Celtics.

Now, after a year off, Iverson said he is ready to end his career in a more heartening fashion. Knowing that the Celtics will be seeking help, Iverson’s manager, Gary Moore, told the Globe his client would love to come to Boston. "I have already spoken to Allen about that and many other opportunities, and of course he would be interested in anywhere in the NBA but Boston is particularly attractive to him,’’ Moore said, "because of Danny Ainge, the organization, and one of the most respected coaches he knows in the business in Doc Rivers. "He has the utmost respect for Doc Rivers and the current roster of players. Allen would relish the opportunity to play in that organization.’’

I actually think that Iverson could possibly be a good mentor for Rondo. A lot of folks love to hate on Iverson, and he IS a funny bird, in that he is both a tremendous over-achiever and under-achiever, but the guy really does love basketball, I think, and I think he understands leadership from the guard position as well as anyone, and I think he could help Rondo push himself to be a more assertive scorer. But we should bring him in only if he WANTS to play the mentor role. If I were Ainge, I would at least talk to Iverson, and I'd have Rondo talk to him as well.
