You can pick your players. You can pick your nose. But, you can't pick your player's noses.

With the 30th pick in the 2008 NBA Draft the World Champion Boston Celtics Draft J.R. Giddens...The crowd goes wild.

"The Celtics select New Mexico senior guard J.R. Giddens with the #30 pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. Giddens averaged 16.3 PPG and 8.8 RPG last season while shooting 52% from the floor. Giddens shared Mountain West Conference Co-Player of the Year honors as a senior. He also earned First Team All-Conference honors."-Celtics.com

I like the pick. Like I said before they didn't need a big man they needed a roll player. Giddens looks like he can handle himself offensively and you got to love the up fakes he showed. He's a senior so you know he's ready to contribute off the bench immediatley. With the question marks at back-up point and 2 guard this pick makes great sense. Apparently he can D it up which doesn't hurt if Posey and Tony Allen both find better offers in free agency. The only negatives are some character issues, but hey Tony Allen was gang banging in Chi town, Paul Pierce got shived about 50 times (apparently he has that in common with Paul) in a pool hall and look how that turned out. He also is a former Jay Hawk who transfered after the whole Roy Williams defection. He took some criticism for his behavior from KU and moved onto the Lobos where his character was again addressed, but he turned it around and that shows he has matured. Maybe this 1 year of college rule is working for the NBA...Baby Truth anyone?????

Pour Some Sugar On ME!

As for the 47th pick the C's sent cash to Washington for the rights to K State's Billy Walker. This trade has Red's signature all over it. Does Danny hear Red's voice in his sleep? From what I heard during March Madness (Jay Bilas loves his length) Walker was a great second option to Beasley and he also played ball with O.J. Mayo in high school. He might be a Ben Wallace with better dunkability or maybe an Acie Earle ; no couldn't be right? I've always been a fan of guys who can take it to the rack and I may be more excited about this guy than Giddens. Time will tell.

Ohh Baby I like it RAAWWWWWWWWW!

By the way how dorky does Keving Love look in that?

With the last pick they drafted Lane Staley of Alice in Chains. A tall guy from Turkey hunh...well I guess all that Championship partying and champagne hangovers might have factored into this pick. What the hell the C's will run the table for the next 5 years anyway.

By the way how is Paul Pierce going to play with one hand next year?
