I’m Jim, and I’m pleased to be joining the Celtics Town crew. A lifelong Maine resident, I live in the state capital and (shocker) work in government. However, I think you’ll find what’s really important for your reading pleasure is that I have season tickets to not only the Boston Celtics, but the brand-new Maine Red Claws, the Celts’ new D-League affiliate. I’ll be giving firsthand account of the action from my view courtside as the 6-1 Red Claws continue through their schedule, taking on the rest of the teams in the NBA Development League. I’ll give you updates on how the Celtics assignees (right now Bill Walker and Lester Hudson) are doing, including my thoughts on their strengths, weaknesses, and overall potential. I’ll also keep you informed about the rest of the team, including whomever the Red Claws may get from the Charlotte Bobcats, their other NBA affiliate team.
I’ll also work to familiarize you all with the D-League in general. I understand that some of you out there may not have paid much attention when the Celtics’ affiliate was in Utah or wherever – that’s OK, I didn’t either. Now I am, though, and so you will be too. I’ll be doing full recaps after almost every home game, and even get in short recaps of road games, as my schedule allows. Of course, I’ll be adding to the general Celtics commentary on the site as well.
