The Boston Celtics have finally gotten around to putting together their first-ever dance team. Apparently, they're just going to call them the "Celtics Dancers," which is unfortunate. I was holding out hope for something like "The Paul Pierce Pleasure Crew," or "The Girls of Scalabrine's Weenie." But, in the tradition of the Celtics, they're playing this one conservatively.

Celtics.com has covered the historic proceedings with this blog. Some of the judges included former Celtics Ernie DiGregorio and Dana Barros, along with current Celtic Tony Allen. I'm sure Tony's looking forward to getting to know some of these ladies better, and if you're Dana Barros, hey, why not take one more shot with the old, "Baby, I'm Dana Barros" line.

Photos from the auditions are here and here.
