Excuse me have you played in the NBA?....no and she didn’t go to an unknown school she attended University of Tennessee and is a good medalist in the Olympics and she played in the WNBA. Yes, very different from NBA but a lot better track recorded then you’re sexist ass.

If he is, no news of it. Most I could find out is he got suspended by the team for two weeks after his conviction.

You wonder if they are just expanding the staff then. Looks like they'll have a lot more this season. Maybe ownership didn't like how coaching went last year?

What I found funny was seeing in her Wikipedia article that she won some award for being a good SHORT female hoopster. (Under 5'8") But she still looks taller than Carsen Edwards in that clip where she's coaching him. :)

Interesting catch.

Here he is. Kinda looks like a flabbier, shorter, Austin Ainge, but definitely in the general Brad Stevens mold: video geek son of a basketball coach.

Have the Celtics media broken their silence on Jerome Allen yet? Doesn't seem to really fit with the new character push:

Suspended for two weeks in July? Sounds like vacation!

I think they had just the number permitted to sit on the front benches during games last season. I noticed the Bucks, for example, seemed to list two more assistant coaches than the C's had.

Well, it's a lot of new faces. Good time to make those type of changes.
We've got like what, 3 coaches with Developmental experience?

That says something. We just may be keeping all of these Rookies.

Sounds like he's been in Court (of law), of late.
