    A bit late, but worth mentioning...

    9/30/13 - Nolan Smith played his first competitive overseas game on Sunday. After two seasons in the NBA, Nolan has signed with Cedevita Zagreb in Croatia.

    So, that's a 'no' on Nolan sticking with Boston.

    I bet Melo would even take kato over Fat Raymond ...

    kato would pick Kyrie ahead of Rose, Rondo, others.

    That said, it is bewildering why Melo would not.

    Back on topic (dookie homers have a tendency to deflect).

    Anyone think Nolan will stick on the Celtics roster?

    kato understands...

    that Melo didn't say he wanted Kyrie or Nolan.

    What are you talking about? Melo said the Knicks should go after Rondo when the Celtics were being broken up by the Nets trade... In other words, he wanted an upgrade at point guard from Felton to Rondo... Understand?

    Talking to yourself again? Is that another one of the side effects of your operation?

    You should probably ask Melo, my guess is that he is jealous of young talent like a lot of pro athletes are.

    Not wanting Nolan is understandable, but makes you wonder what Melo dislikes so much about Kyrie, eh jr?

    You mean Kyrie the All Star? The same Kyrie that you weren't aware even was an All Star. Good to know.

    Nope. Never recovered, by the looks of his pro career.

    Poor Nolan. The dook Way.

    Nolan Smith did his job at Duke. Not much special about him. He's slow, can't handle the ball, and he's a streaky shooter. Coach K helped him a bunch.

    Nolan suffered a torn calf playing in the summer league for the Celtics. Too bad as it was rumored he was in line to allow Boston to trade Rondo for some needed firepower. Smith only averaged 2.8 points, 0.9 assists and 0.7 rebounds in 7.2 minutes per game in 40 appearances this season but his former Duke coaching was expected to kick-in any day now.

    http://www.nba.com/dleague/games/20130108/CTNIDA/gameinfo.html Idaho was playing its second game with Portland Trail Blazers assignee, Nolan Smith. While he didn't have the scoring outing he had yesterday vs. Texas, when he scored a game-high 28 points, the Stampede seemed to have an extra kick in their step with him out on the floor. Smith finished with 17 points and five assists.

    Given the reining NBA Rookie of the Month is Portland PG Damien Lillard...

    it looks like Nolan will continue his valuable role from last season (riding the pine behind Ray-Ray).

  • SilentSam Dec 1, 2012

    He played tonight!

    17 minutes, 0-5 shooting, 0 points, 1 assist, 3 turnovers.

    Kendall should keep him a seat warm in the D-League. He'll be joining him soon.

    Another DNP tonight.

    Portland loses to the lowly Wizards, who win first game of season against poor Nolan and the 'Blazers.

    LOL @ the below from April.

    A new season has started and the OP has resorted to deflection tactics on his very own thread (as opposed to Nolan updates).
