Green get the best of Oden.  
Celtics may have hit the lottery as undrafted rookie shines. Green Bandwagon Note - I hope Brandon Wallace signs with the Celtics and makes a tremendous contribution to the team. But this article screams of off season optimism. Also for those of you who have not followed the Doc Rivers era closely, he is a master of subtly praising himself and throwing his players under the bus. In this article he does the former with this gem:

"'We may have gotten really lucky here,' said Rivers. `We thought he might be able to be an active 4, but then seeing him in our league with all the strength I was thinking he won't survive at that spot. Then at the (Thursday) morning coaches meeting, I said, `Guys, I think he's a 3. Let's just throw him at the 3 and see what happens.'"

Maybe I am overanalyzing things here. But it is the Rivers' way. Trust me. Back to Wallace. If someone can get me footage of him hitting a mid range jumper with Tommy Heinsohn saying, "That's the shot that is going to make him an All Star" then I will officially jump on the Wallace bandwagon. No sooner.
