Courtney Lee moved quickly to dispel the rumors that he is upset with Rajon Rondo, taking to Twitter with a series of to-the-point tweets early this morning. Celtics fans were relieved by Lee's assertions that he "helped Rondo get up once after he fell," but were dismayed to learn that Lee's animosity is really directed toward Celtic big man Jason Collins. "First of all," Lee tweeted, "I thought we had Jarron Collins until last week...wtf, right?"
Apparently gaining steam, Lee continued with a vitriolic series of pointed messages criticizing Collins' play, personality, and general effect on the team.
"How many times does he need to pivot around before passing back out to the three point line? PIVOT...PIVOT...PIVOT..........."
"Hey J-Coll -- it's called ANGRY BIRDS, play with an attitude or put down the Razr."
"Loudest chewer on the team -- the captain said he couldn't hear the engines flying home last night."
"Stiemsma ain't walking through that door but I wish he would."
Losing Rondo was damaging enough for these unsteady Celtics. Hopefully this new rift in the locker room will not be the final body blow that brings the team to its knees.
