Musical Chairs

The middle of the Celtics [1] locker room always seems to be cluttered with a mass of rolling chairs, but rookies J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker [2] have learned there aren’t enough to go around.

‘€œHonestly I was looking for my jersey and then they were like, ‘Rookies got to share lockers,”€ Giddens said.

Giddens and Walker will be lockermates until the Celtics cut the roster down to 15. For now they share space next to Darius Miles and Rajon Rondo [3].

‘€œWe’re considerate of each other,’€ Walker explained. ‘€œWe come in at different times so there’s never any congestion at the locker.’€

So what will it mean when the rookies finally have their own space?

‘€œIt’s just a locker, but if I had my own chair that’d be the biggest change,” Walker conceded. “I’m sharing the chair with J.R. Five minutes on, five minutes off.’€

Not quite.

‘€œActually we don’t even have a chair,’€ Giddens admitted with a smile. ‘€œThis is somebody else chair.’€

The Celtics better call fives when they leave the locker room.
