    Henry Abbott

    By Kevin Arnovitz CHICAGO -- Celtics' reserve J.R. Giddens can't fairly be regarded as a long-range shooter. He's attempted only one shot from beyond the arc in his 54 career minutes. But the second-year shooting guard is trying, but not without s...

  13. Dr. Jack Ramsay, Reporter

    Henry Abbott
