Delonte West signs with the Celtics

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Here’s a link to the article. Good signing for the Celtics — Delonte can back up both guard positions, he plays defense, and he’s a pretty good fit next to both Rondo and Allen. There will always be concerns about Delonte’s mental state, but the Celtics have dealt with him before, have a player’s coach and a locker room of veterans, and feel that Delonte won’t be a problem for them off the court.

Delonte is always a guy I rooted for in Cleveland because of the way he played the game and the way he came clean about his mental issues — I’m really glad he found his way onto a contender, and wish him all the best.

Notes and Errata: September 1st, 2010

Taxes gone fight

-Nuggets front office focusing on re-upping Carmelo. Jamaal Crawford asking for an extension or a trade. This looming CBA is making everything crazy, I swear. What happened to the good old days of teams being terrified of impending free agency?

-USA vs. Iran tomorrow. I’m picking the USA. Is “Team USA as a trial run for Durant’s MVP campaign” a legit narrative?

Mo Williams and LeBron caught up. How is everyone else reconciling the loyalty Mo has shown to the Cavs this offseason with his lackluster performances against the Magic and the Celtics?

-Bummed I missed the Lithuania/Spain game. Apparently the announcer made a legit star turn.

-Why do I feel like the comments on the BlazersEdge/LeBron ass-grabbing story would be very different if it happened tomorrow?

-Excellent piece on Tyreke and his jumper by FanHouse’s Sam Amick, but isn’t Tyreke with a 3-point stroke a prime Gilbert Arenas?

That’s all for me tonight. Until tomorrow.
