NBA Rookies: What I Want For Christmas

    This time of year, everyone is asking for something. Whether you just celebrated Hanukkah or have Christmas coming up this weekend, you probably asked for something, or received a gift from someone. Here is what we think think each team’s rookies are asking Santa for. Some will be basketball related, others—not so much.

Jordan Crawford – A Chance to Shine

    Jordan Crawford has all the tools a swing man needs and fits right in with the athletic Hawks. Currently the rookie out of Xavier is only getting 11 minutes a night to put those skills on display. Santa may have come early for Crawford with Jamal Crawford going down with injury last week.

Pape Sy – Nothing

    Sy should be ecstatic the Hawks decided to sign him, he doesn’t get any more wishes.

Avery Bradley – Cold Stone Gift Cards

    We’ve heard about NBA players having a sweet tooth and Avery Bradley is no exception. A few weeks ago, Bradley went out for a midnight Cold Stone run, so he’d certainly put the gift cards to good use.

Luke Harangody – Cigars

    Early this month, one of our favorite Celtics blogs (oddly enough named Celtics Blog), dubbed Luke the human victory cigar. Add to that the Celtics history with cigars dating back to Red Auerbach, so by giving Luke a box he’ll be more and more immersed in Celtics history.

Semih Erden – A New Number

    Sure the Celtics have retired a lot of numbers, and they have the 14 active players, but come on—86? Erden hasn’t earned the right to wear crazy numbers like Artest and other vets, so make him wear something somewhat normal.

Sherron Collins – A Call-Up

    A few NBA rookies will be looking for a call-up from the NBA D-League. Collins started the season playing very limited minutes, but appeared in 12 games before getting sent down. Hopefully after the All-Star Break, Collins can rejoin his NBA club.

Omer Asik – Endurance

    Asik will be seeing a lot more minutes with Joakim Noah out for up to 10 weeks. Hopefully his lungs and legs are up to it, since he hasn’t seen this many minutes in the NBA yet.
