What's happening with some of our favorite former Boston Celtics?

USA TODAY Sports

With a couple of off-days for the Boston Celtics, now is a good time to take another look around the NBA to see what some former Celtics are up to this season. From White Mamba in Golden State to Big Baby in Orlando, let's see what's happening.

JO is out, how about Scal?

Jermaine O'Neal, of course, got injured for the Golden State Warriors, so the team has been scrambling to find a replacement center. Reportedly, the front office even entertained asking Brian Scalabrine to come out of retirement and suit up for the team. Interestingly, Scal is currently an assistant coach for Golden State, so he would've had to "retire" from that for now. However, it looks like Golden State will look elsewhere, which is probably a good thing for them.

The Stiemer is sidelined

This past Tuesday New Orleans Pelicans center Greg Stiemsma suffered a sprained MCL when trying to set a perimeter screen for his teammate. In a total fluke, his left knee buckled with only slight contact, and he will now be shelved for up to two months. Before the injury, Stiemer was averaging 2.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks per game.

Big Baby throws a tantrum

Glen Davis hasn't played a game for the Orlando Magic this season as he recovers from two foot surgeries over a six-month span, and he has publicly said that his career may never be the same. So, it's no surprise that frustration has set in when you are prevented from living out your dream. However, that's no excuse for his behavior when he broke a computer at a Florida motel.

Big Baby looked furious, reached over the counter, ripped out the keyboard, and then tossed it away, which is probably what he feels is happening to him with his unfortunate injuries. Glen Davis was fined by the Magic and he apologized for his behavior, but I hope he is able to recover from his injuries and become the player that he once was.

No class reunion in LA

Last Saturday, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and the Brooklyn Nets traveled to Los Angeles to face Doc Rivers and the Clippers. What was supposed to be a beautiful (or awkward?) reunion turned out to be nothing but a "DNP" for Pierce and KG. Since it was the second night of a back-to-back, Nets coach Jason Kidd sat both of his future Hall of Famers. Check out this read from Ramona Shelburne on the reunion that could've been.
