Is Delonte West-Von Wafer Fight a Sign That Chemistry Is a Problem for Celtics?


If you’ve watched any Celtics games this season, you’ve probably noticed a commercial featuring the men in green advocating their team goals. Team chemistry ranks atop that list of team priorities.

You may have also noticed the Celtics headlines on Friday, splashed with the news that all was not well in the C’s locker room. A fight broke out between backup guards Delonte West and Von Wafer following a post-practice scrimmage. In a pregame interview, head coach Doc Rivers admitted that there was a fight, but said the team was moving on. The team may be moving on, but will the tension linger?

Even for a team as rock solid as the Celtics, one small fissure in their chemistry can cause the whole operation to explode. Will the veteran-led C’s be able to move past this issue, or is there trouble down the line for the team?
