Summer League is just around the corner. The Celtics kick it off this Saturday at 11 AM. Set those alarm clocks!
We may not see James Young though. We will see Marcus Smart at point guard after all, though that could just be temporary for Summer League. Also, Colton Iverson says the roster spot is his for the taking. And also Phil Pressey says he's never been a loser in his life.
Lots of fun coming out of summer league practice today. The full quotes below!
