WALTHAM – From the ’18′ on the backboard shot clock above the dais to the ’20:10′ on the clock with the number ’30′ on scoreboard, the Celtics practice facility was decked out on Thursday for the arrival of Rasheed Wallace.

It was arguably the most significant press conference held at Healthpoint, as the Big Three introductory presser of July 2007 was at the Garden.

Eight people were on the dais at that presser as opposed to the to six on Thursday.
