1x NBA Champ
1x All NBA
2x All Star
12 year NBA career
$95m in career salary.

Not bad for the 30th pick in the draft, I mean he's no JR Giddens, but not too shabby.


After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class

One of my favorite parts about this message board is I can say things here without getting killed with a "downvote" mechanic for giving stupid hot takes.

It is with that in mind that I say good riddance!  I hated that guy.  So overrated and nobody bought it more than he did.  I would say my all time least favorite Celtics are:

1.) Mark Blount
2.) David Lee
3.) Jermaine O'Neal

I would have put Vin Baker on there, but I am sympathetic to his addiction problems and he seems to be recovered nicely.  Evan Turner would be on there too for his play, but I really like him as a person.

he helped the tank

That was the 48 win year and our pick was #23, so unfortunately not really. 

But when we did suck we had the even better tank captain, The Cranky Ghost of Gerald Wallace.

And now he's retired before he turns 35. I would take that life.
