Celtic Pride is Dead.
Good to see that everyone needs a gun these days, no matter who they are or how priveleged a lifestyle they are fortunate enough to find themselves living. Between the loss of Red Auerbach and Dennis Johnson, the 18-game losing streak and the widespread accusations of tanking games to land Oden or Durant in the draft-- not to mention Paul Pierce's injuries-- this season will go down as one of the worst in Celtic franchise history.
Then along comes Mister Telfair with timely and disturbing cherry on top.

Boston Celtics guard Sebastian Telfair was arrested early today after police in Yonkers, N.Y. stopped him for speeding on the Bronx River Parkway and found a loaded handgun, according to a report in the The Journal News in Westchester, N.Y.
Telfair, who this week finished his first season with the Celtics, gave police a suspended Florida driver's license according to the report. He and a friend were both charged with second-degree possession of a weapon, a felony. He was also charged with a misdemeanor charge of second degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.
Both men are expected to be arraigned today.
