Telfair probably should have gone to college.
Telfair, one of the first point guards to enter the NBA straight out of high school, came to the C's after three very mundane seasons in Portland and guess what? He had one very mundane season in Boston, at least on the court.
Telfair averaged six points and three assists for the C's as they went went 24-58 and finished dead last in the Atlantic Division. His most valuable basketball contribution to the C's was being part of the package that went to Minnesota in exchange for Kevin Garnett.
What Telfair did manage to do was get himself in trouble off the court not once, but twice as a Celtic. First, days before the '06 season began, he was robbed of a $50,000 chain outside a club in New York where one hour later the rapper Fabolous was shot.
Then, barely six months later, he was arrested after getting pulled over for speeding and charged with felony weapons possession and driving with a suspended license.
No wonder Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck announced just days later Telfair's nameplate was off his locker and he wouldn't be back in Boston.
