08:09 AM ET 03.10 | Considering the way he left Oklahoma City, Nenad Krstic's arrival in Boston has gone smoother than he'd expected. Krstic seems to have found a niche immediately with the Celtics, who are still uncertain about when center Shaquille O'Neal will return from an Achilles/hip injury. ... He may not be a starting center for the Celtics for much longer this year, not when O'Neal comes back. But Krstic has already made an impression in Boston, and when his contract comes up after this year, he wouldn't mind sticking around. "I was more excited and more nervous and happy about coming here," Krstic said. "So far, it's been good, and when you have a chance to play for a team like this, of course, you hope you can do it for a long time."

he's off to a good start, but the celts need shaq and baby back otherwise it'll be just like last night over and over...they'll be good for post season which is all that really matters.

Them freaks at BC & BU got him Boston loving... They won't win a championship with him as starting center but that's OK.

March 10, 2011  09:31 AM ET
