CelticsBlog writer and CLNS Media reporter Chris Grenham has taken over the hosting duties while Bobby Manning is overseas, and he and CLNS Media Founder Nick Gelso discussed a chaotic Thursday at the Auerbach Center in Brighton, Massachusetts.

The day began with the arraignment of Boston Celtics guard Jabari Bird. With the disturbing details of his arrest revealing a serious and scary situation, the team immediately released a statement noting that, first and foremost, their thoughts and are with the victim.

We then switched over to much lighter news, with Gordon Hayward’s first media availability in quite a long time. The all-star said he’s ready to go, while his only concern is about putting up a banner.

Grenham and Gelso also spoke about SI’s annual Top 100 list, where Al Horford was ranked higher than Kyrie Irving.
