Featured video and audio clips on Al Jefferson brought to you by Boston's WEEI Sports Radio.
Kirk Minihane joins the We Hate Dwyane Wade Show to preview the upcoming Celtics season. Ben and Sam also discuss the Rajon Rondo/Jeff Green trade rumors and dabble in the classic NBA analytics debate.
Today's four at four talks about some of the biggest trades in the last 30 years. Gretzky, Hershel Walker, Sox/Dodgers, and KG to the Celtics.
Garnett and Ray Allen . While that group won only 24 games, Pierce, Rondo, Tony Allen , Kendrick Perkins , Gerald Green , Al Jefferson , Delonte West & Co. were worth the price of admission, especially at $10 a balcony ticket, and
earned Kevin Garnett’s trust and chastised Ray Allen, all the while serving as a father figure to everyone from Al Jefferson to Jason Collins. Hell, he even threw a cupcake party . So, when Rivers signed a five-year, $35 million contract, he seemed
he had NO talent other than Paul Pierce and a rookie Al Jefferson . In the NBA, teams with talent win -- period, the end ..... discussion, and Doc would be getting praised. -- Umm ... Al Jefferson has been an All-Star-caliber player since he left
a top draft pick in 2007, but Rivers was not successful in developing young talent in many instances. Players like Al Jefferson , Gerald Green , Sebastian Telfair and Glen Davis fell short of their potential in Boston and ended up experiencing varying
Andrew Bynum or Dwight Howard , but those two are few and far between. The league is filled with quasi-centers like Al Jefferson , whom Garnett tangled with in the Celtics ’ 94-82 win over the Jazz on Wednesday. Jefferson shot 1-for-8 in
Everything turned OK when Danny Ainge convinced Minnesota’s GM and good friend Kevin McHale to trade him Kevin Garnett for Al Jefferson before drafting Jeff Green at No. 5 and then swung a deal that netted Ray Allen . Oden was eventually chosen No. 1 overall by Portland
year of eligibility since 2005, when he drafted a high school kid for a third consecutive season ( Kendrick Perkins , Al Jefferson and Gerald Green ). Of course, most one-and-done talents are taken with the first 14 picks, and technically the
assists each month. And he had himself a game against the Wizards, too. Previous winners: Paul Pierce (twice), Al Jefferson , Kevin Garnett , Ray Allen , Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers . K.O. punch : Olynyk entered the night averaging 15.6 points
Celtics have all season, they struggled against a talented offensive big man. This time it happened to be old friend Al Jefferson (32 points, 10 rebounds), who torched Sullinger & Co. with a variety of post moves for 14 points on 7-of-10
Sullinger has cemented himself as either a building block for the Celtics future or one heck of a trade chip (a la Al Jefferson in 2007). Not bad for an undersized big who fell to No. 21 and missed much of his rookie season due to back surgery
