Boston Celtics: The Big Green Machine

We'll be back and better than ever!

What to Watch For

Posted by r1zzo23 on June 30, 2007

Do you need NBA action in your life? Heck, I know I do. I know this has been probably the most interesting NBA off-season that I have ever witnessed and it’s only going to heat up with the moving of some marquee free agents. But for me, I need to watch some of these guys play.

Friday night is a great chance to catch a glimpse of some of the biggest names of the NBA Draft. The Celtics will be squaring off against the new bandwagon team: the Portland Trailblazers. Thanks David Stern! Not only do you keep us from getting Oden or Durant, but you throw it in our face by making us be Oden’s first opponent in Las Vegas.

Let’s take a look at the players that should make up the core of each team’s summer league squad:

Portland TrailBlazers:

  • Brandon Roy
  • Greg Oden
  • Lamarcus Aldridge
  • Josh McRoberts
  • Rudy Fernandez
  • Channing Frye
  • Martell Webster
  • Jarrett Jack
  • Taurean Green
  • Sergio Rodriguez

WOW! Is that a summer league squad or what? That’s an NBA team to fear in three years of playing together. I can’t wait to see them play against the Celtics Friday night. Let’s see who the Celtics will most likely counter with.

Boston Celtics:

  • Rajon Rondo
  • Gabe Pruitt
  • Allan Ray
  • Gerald Green
  • Ryan Gomes
  • Leon Powe
  • Glen Davis
  • Sebastian Telfair?

Yup, we’re going to get destroyed. But that’s OK, I just want to see our young guns get out there and show that they can play. I’m hoping that Gabe Pruitt has a nice showing and makes a spark for this team this year. The question is, will Oden be dunked on or will he be doing the posterizing. I’m sure Gerald Green will be looking to show why he’s the NBA Dunk Contest winner…
