I'm still in shock with the rest of the Celtic Nation that Green slipped to us. I know there was the theory out there that if he didn't go at #6, then he'd likely slip due to promises, etc., but no one expected him to fall into our laps. It'll probably be sometime before he's ready to contribute but the reaction in the chatroom was worth the tension of the wait.

Adding Gomes at #50, was icing on the cake. Didn't figure he'd fall to us there, but it was certainly more likely a scenario to me than how the Green selection panned out.

Update: Ok, I have to admit to knowing pretty much nothing about Orien Greene, but Celtics fans seem to be quite happy with that pick as well. Adding another PG to groom can't be a bad thing though. I'll reserve final judgement, but it doesn't change how pleased I am, overall, with the draft.

Dannyboy, you did a good job in my book. Whether it was luck or skill, I care not, it's the results that matter.

We hope that everyone enjoyed the live chat, I know I did. The turnout was simply phenomenal. Sleep tight Celtic Nation and may your dreams be of #17.

Thanks for a great night.
