Yes we do. Ill take any help we can get on the bench.

Nate/Bradley
Von Wafer
Daniels
Davis/harangody
JO

Not too bad. If they can add Fernandez they would be looking pretty good

He's a solid pickup for the C's. He'll make some noise come playoff time when it's primetime and everyone see's what these teams benches are capable of.

Von, Nate, and Davis are gonna bring so much energy, JO and Daniels are gonna play like vets... Add more depth and they will be solid

Hopefully for the Celtics, he won't be demanding to start or to receive extra playing time when he did back when he played for the Houston Rockets. He is a solid player and if he doesn't give the Celtics any sort of problems in the locker room nor with the coaching staff, he'll be a very good pickup for the Boston Celtics.

We've had Nate, Sheed, Marquis, Marbury all in this locker room. And have had little to no problems. I dont think Von Wafer will be causing any problems or ruining the locker room. I actually think he can help. I remember watching this guy carry the Rockets for a few games. End of the bench guy for the leagie minimum is good to me.

Only negative for me is this means theres one less roster spot for SCAL..We better resign the Vanilla Gorilla.

Not a bad signing as I remember him playing well with Houston.

Sadly, all I remember about him as a Laker is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYSqmfWLBUE

The same was said about Sheed and Marbury, right?

Not bad at all but I must say the bench is still weak compared to the other top contending teams.

Celtic AL
07-29-2010, 08:03 PM
Never heard of him i but guess hes good! he'll Make the C's Bench Stronger

RocketsRule
07-29-2010, 08:06 PM
I like it for Boston. He can replace Allen, though he is more offensive-minded than he is.

Guess this means no Fernandez?

Excellent signing for the Celtics...he is basically a bigger version of a younger Eddie House...suprised the heat didnt pursue him?

He'll be another good player coming off of the bench for the Celtics. Nate and Wafer off the bench are gonna take all of the shots but they can put up a ton of points.

I think he already knows he won't start in Boston. He only signed for the veteran minimum and he has Ray Allen ahead of him.

07-29-2010, 08:56 PM
PG Rondo/Nate/Bradley
SG Allen/Wafer
SF Pierce/Daniels/harangody
PF Garnett/Davis
C Perk/Oneal/Semih Erden or Sheed or Shaq

even tho we lost TA are Bench Still Looks Great! So Watch Out Miami this League Aint Yours just Yet!

I really don't understand the love this guy is getting . . . he wasn't good enough to play in the NBA, and then he averaged 7 points a game playing in Greece before they waived him.

Von Wafer is an EXCELLENT pick up.

I am not saying it will happen, but if I ever were to say that Wafer WILL cause problems then you are proving the point about Marbury. He did have some problems with Paul Pierce.

Remember, every person is different.

I am a fan of Wafer, so I do hope it works out. He also learned a lot from veterans in Houston like Ron Artest, so if he can learn from them he will learn a lot more from the veterans in Boston.

Shaddix

Eh, Boston's still not done. I really hope they trade Sheed's contract for a nice tall and fairly talented big man. Size killed us against LA, we need a 7 footer...

He also learned a lot from veterans in Houston like Ron Artest, so if he can learn from them he will learn a lot more from the veterans in Boston.I think there are quite a few players all over the league that have a problem with Paul Pierce. First off he thinks he is better then everyone else. Provides zero veteran leadership unless there is a camera close by and then it's one, two, three, unbuntu or whatever. Paul Pierce is a great player, but honestly he is the worst captain in Celtics history. And I am a Celtics fan, **** I'm a Paul Pierce fan, but I keep for real.

Von Wafer, The Celtics Savior. I Really Don't Have Much To Say About That Other Than Shelden Williams Already Has His Bench Seat Warmed Up For Him.
