Gaffney's Amazing Dunk at All-Star Game!

You have not seen a great dunk until you have seen Tony Gaffney catching the ball off one bounce and reverse dunking from a ball tossed from the upper rafters! The spectacular dunk occurred at the BBL All-Star Day Dunk Contest representing his Telekom Baskets Bonn team. Seriously ...take a look.

Hanging with Tony Gaffney

Nothing like hanging out with the Gaffney family at Jessica and Jamal's wedding (Jess is one of Tony's three beautiful sisters). Tony is heading to Germany to play professionally with Telekom Baskets Bonn. Tony started last season in Turkey with Turk Telekom Ankara and then moved back to the States. He played in NBDL with Utah Flash averaging 10.3ppg, 6.8rpg and 2.3apg in 38 games. Best of luck Tony - the journey continues!

Gaffney off to Play in Turkey

Just heard from Tony's family that TGaff is off to Turkey to play some ball for Turkish Telekom. It's been a whirlwind for the former UMass star. Following college there have been several NBA workouts for various teams (see below), intense workouts down at IMG Academy (in Florida), signs with the Lakers, plays in Israel,  breaks his ankle, back to the states, plenty of rehab, more workouts, signed by the Celtics and now flying once again overseas with a nice contract in hand. Its hard not to like this guy! The journey continues from the MAN from Berkley. Even the Celtic girls are still cheering for him!!

Celtics Release Tony Gaffney

The Boston Celtics released Tony Gaffney yesterday. It simply came down to a numbers game for Gaffney as the Celtics signed Von Wafer to a one-year contract and resigned Marquis Daniels (along with the two O'Neals) the last few spots became that much tougher for Tony to crack.

comments from Doc: “He plays extremely hard. He’s one of those guys who you would love to figure out a way to keep him on your team, but numbers got him.”

from Gaffney's Facebook page: "All good things must come to an end. It was a great time being w the Celtics, it ended today. I appreciate all the love n support. You guys are the best. My agent is back to the drawing board and stirring up something. So when the next move is finalized you all will know. Thanks again everyone."

Obviously, a lot of good things came from Tony playing with the C's since last Spring. There is talk of heading to LA again - we shall see - best of luck Tony...the JOURNEY CONTINUES. We're all still in your corner and still cheering for yeah!!!

Celtics Waive Lafayette

The Celtics waived Oliver Lafayette while forward Tony Gaffney continues to hold on. Tony has a lot to offer and playing the 3 (vs. a guard spot) has helped with the Celtics.
