"The unusual delay raised questions about whether the C's really wanted to invest three guaranteed years in the surprise pick. Just when things seemed to have turned around for the 2003 McDonald's All-American, familiar doubts about his future simmered once again.

So what did the New Mexico University alumnus do? He went out and got a bright green shamrock tattoo behind his left ear.

"People were saying that to me," he acknowledged of the risk involved. "But I knew in my heart it was right. I felt everything happens for a reason. This was destiny and I am a Celtic now."
Two months after he gushed at the thought of wearing a Celtics uniform, Giddens finally signed. This week, he was in Waltham working out with new teammate and fellow rookie Bill Walker, and fulfilling the destiny that hardly seemed assured not long ago."


If this guy keeps working hard, he'll soon be a fans favorite.

Very interesting! I guess he really wanted to be a Celtic...not sure the tatoo helped in negotiations! LOL...we kind of had him between a rock and a hard place after he got the tatoo he probabl would have signed for peanuts. :D

Seriously thought I think its cool...even though im not a tatoo person.

Haha that's sick. Hopefully they keep him there for the future and not get traded with that tattoo now.

He Has Enough Money To Remove It.
