This is a tragic occurrence for Tremont, and there is little of comfort that can be offered. I am not into platitudes, and you won't hear them here, but there is an intense sadness to this news for the Waters family, the Boston Celtics and all of the fans that adore our team and the guys that play for it. Tremont has had a solid showing in Summer League. We are all in this together, and I can't possibly imagine what Tremont and his family are going through.
