Video: Tyler Zeller talks playing center for the Celtics and working out with Rajon Rondo

Tyler Zeller has a strong shot of starting for the Celtics this season. There will be some strong competition for Zeller though as I'm sure Sully, Olynyk and Bass are all looking to start as well. And then of course there's Vitor. Right now I'd say Zeller has the edge due to being a 7 footer, but we haven't even started camp yet, so lots of things can change. Working...

Truth looking svelte as always as camp approaches

During his time with the Boston Celtics, *sniff..sniff* Paul Pierce would always show up for training camp in great shape. Well at 36 years old and heading into his 17th NBA season, Pierce shows no signs of letting up. At a photo shoot for Spalding today at WKU, Pierce looked every bit the picture of health.
