The official Celtics YouTube channel released this conversation with Eddie House today. So far this preseason Eddie has been lights out and many people think he can break his own team record for three point percentage. I am going to go out on a limb and say that Eddie is just as good of a shooter as Ray. In a three point contest I would take Ray Allen any day because of the fact that he his a better spot shooter. Eddie is better off having a defender in his face while falling backwards then having a wide open shot in the corner. If he doesn't have time to think about it, you usually can assume it's going in. When asked in the conversation if there is a sweet spot on the court that he likes, Eddie responded by saying:
"Na, just wherever I can get it off I feel like that's my sweet spot, I don't think I ever take a shot and feel like I'm missing a shot, the shot I'm taking I feel like is about to go in."
I am as excited as ever this year to watch Eddie come off the bench and hit the big threes that ice the games for us. The other team's seem to forget about Eddie when you have other superstars on the court, but in crunch time this guy can really haunt you.
Eddie also caught my attention in the conversation when he started talking about last years team:
"Last year I think we had guys, not guys, but I just think at times we weren't all on the same page."
We have heard Doc saying earlier this year that he thought that the team had some chemistry struggles at the end of last year. He thought that some players were more worried about themselves than the team. This year they need to commit to UBUNTU and form as one to regain the title.
After last year's playoffs Eddie is as bitter as every other guy on the team, and I am sure he is ready to hit the floor Tuesday against the other Eastern Conference powerhouse, the Cleveland Cavaliers.
