Join us tonight from 8-10pm for a Thanksgiving Edition of Celtics Stuff Live! Jon and Justin will be discussing recent articles from CSL staff writers such as Kevin Henkin's, Big Two or Big Three:
According to the excellent piece submitted by Marc Spears in the Boston Globe this morning, Allen was reportedly directed by his doctors last year to skip training camp and significantly limit his playing time in the early part of the season. Instead, Allen played the full preseason and went full tilt from game one, averaging nearly 40 minutes per contest in the above-discussed initial 16 games of 2007. Of course, playing through the pain had its affect. Allen contends that his lack of lift resulting from his ankle woes has continuously impacted the mechanics of his shot. Itʼs something he says heʼs still dealing with, even today, although to a lesser degree than last year.
And Jack Jemsek's Ubuntu Should Put Celtics as Top 2008 Story:
So along with the spirit of Ubuntu enters Kevin Garnett, Defensive Player of the Year, and assistant coach Tom Thibodeau. As reported by John Hollinger at ESPN, the Celtics ended up leading the league in defense efficiency, and ranked up there with the San Antonio teams of 2003-05 and the New York Knick teams of 1992-94 as top defensive teams in the last 30 years. It appears that they are still doing it this year as well, leading the league in defensive field goal percentage again.
We'll also be talking about Kendrick Perkins improved play, Glen Davis' jumper, and the Scalabrine Phenomenon. As always we'll take your calls via the toll free number (1-866-751-9649) and field questions from the chat. See you tonight!
