BOSTON -- The city of Boston is expected to be hit with a blizzard that could dump two feet of snow between Friday and Saturday.
With residents urged to stay inside, the Celtics could find themselves snowbound. They are scheduled to practice Saturday, subject to weather conditions, but could end up indoors until their next game Sunday evening at TD Garden against the Nuggets.
How will they spend this rare amount of midseason downtime? Some players are looking forward to a mini-break, while others got antsy thinking about being cooped up because of the wintery mess. They shared their plans with CSNNE.com.
Avery Bradley: The snow definitely isnt going to hold me back from any of my plans, I was just telling Courtney (Lee) that. He thinks Im going to stay in the house all day. Ill probably just go shopping for groceries and clothes, the same thing I do on every day off. What if the city of Boston shuts down? Shut the city down? They cant do that. Theres no way all the stores can be closed, no way. Ill probably watch TV, watch movies with my girlfriend, chill, thats about it. We got snow in Seattle (Bradley grew up in Washington state), I was out of school for two weeks one time because of it.
Jeff Green: Ill be on the couch, watching TV, Real Husbands of Hollywood, Modern Family, Workaholics. Those are my only three shows I watch. I like having down time, I need it.
Chris Wilcox: Ive got a few movies, Ill watch them. Im going to cook something, sit back on the couch, and chill. I took out some oxtails so I might cook some oxtails. I seasoned them Thursday, Ill sear them, then Ill put them in a Crock Pot and let them slow cook. Then Ill stir them, mix them, get them right, and right at the end before I take them out, Im going to put my special ingredient in there. I cant really tell you what it is. Its like the best-tasting filet ever. Its so tender, it falls off the bone.
Fab Melo: Im used to snow, so its not anything that would bother me. Im going to work out, go to the gym. I will get there, I live right there. If anything, Ill go running. I did it at Syracuse . . . (The craziest thing I did in the snow at Syracuse was), somebody dared me to do a snow angel outside and I went, no shirt on.
Brandon Bass: Im going to enjoy the snow maybe play in it, maybe take my son out a little bit. Thats part of the reason why I like Boston, because I get the opportunity to see snow. Its just different from what Im used to (growing up in Baton Rouge, LA). Its cool (to see my five-year-old son play in the snow). Ill get home from practice and the snows out there, hell be like, Daddy lets go outside! . . . When I have downtime, Im spending time with my son, playing around. I might watch him play Kinect on the Xbox or we might play some kind of game. When Im home, he always asks me, Daddy, lets do something that you think is fun. He actually comes up with it, he gives me three choices and Ive got to pick one. Hell do whatever, as long as its with me.
Jason Collins: I live downtown, so Im going to try to work out at a fitness center there. I can walk. I did go out and buy these really big boots, snow boots. I got them online because (I wear) size 17. They look like I could survive in the arctic. Ill be able to manage in the snow.
Courtney Lee: Im going to relax, eat food, watch TV. Other cities will be fine so Ill be watching some games. (I like to watch) The First 48, got to watch The First 48. I always watch games, Law & Order has a lot of good episodes on there. MTV runs back Martin and The Wayans Bros., so I always catch them. Other than that, I just watch games for the most part, college and NBA.
