BOSTON -- Ray Allen donned a green pedicure prior to Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat on Sunday night.
"The Celtics spirit, you've got to be in it," he said, then quickly put on a pair of socks to cover his toes.
The last time Allen received a green pedicure was during the 2010 playoffs when the Celtics reached the NBA Finals.
For those interested in his foot fashion, Allen did not know the name of the color other than it was by Essie.
Shifting gears from his toes to his ankle, Allen isn't trying to think too much about his nagging injury which has limited him during the playoffs. He scored 10 points in the Celtics Game 3 win.
"I try not to worry about it," he said. "I'm dealing with that I have to deal with. My focus is what we have here, paying attention to what they're doing, and improving on what we did. It's almost a time physically you've got to give whatever you can give."
Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas has a career free throw percentage of .863 in six seasons in the NBA.
But in a free throw contest against Seattle Seahawks wideout - and free throw champion - Tyler Lockett, Thomas went a perfect 12-for-12.
BOSTON – The Boston Celtics moved one step closer towards trimming down its overcrowded roster with the waiving of John Holland.
The 27-year-old would have gone into training camp with a very slim shot at making the roster. He signed a two-year deal that would have been worth $874,636 for the 2016-2017 season.
However, the contract was non-guaranteed and would have more than likely been used as part of a potential trade.
But no such deal materialized.
So rather than have the 6-foot-5 guard/forward in training camp with the odds heavily stacked against him making the team, Boston waived him now so that he has enough time to either go to training camp with another NBA team or sign with a team overseas.
Holland, who starred at Boston University, has already played overseas in France, Spain and Turkey in addition to having played with the Development League’s Canton Charge last season.
He played in one game for the Boston Celtics.
The Celtics now have 18 players in training camp, 16 of which have guaranteed contracts.
The NBA’s 38 rookies had their annual photo shoot and were polled by NBA.com with a couple of questions about their class. When asked which rookie was the most athletic among them, the Celtics’ Jaylen Brown, the No. 3 pick overall last June, won in a landslide.
Here are the results of that question:
1. Jaylen Brown, Boston -- 38.7%
2. Brice Johnson, L.A. Clippers -- 16.1%
3. Marquese Chriss, Phoenix -- 9.7%
T-4. Malik Beasley, Denver -- 6.5%
Kay Felder, Cleveland -- 6.5%
Gary Payton II, Houston -- 6.5%
Providence guard Kris Dunn, No. 5 pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves was the freshman class’ pick to win rookie of the year honors, with 29 percent of the vote, followed by No. 2 pick Brandon Ingram of the Lakers and No. 1 pick Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers.
