The Patrick O'Bryant era is over, actually it never started.

On Wednesday, the Golden State Warrior's former top draft pick signed with the Celtics.

O'Bryant was the ninth pick in the 2006 draft, but work ethic was not his strength. He became a permanent resident in Don Nelson's doghouse and never got out.

To his credit, O'Bryant was quoted in Boston, saying he was immature and didn't do a good job preparing to play for the Warriors.

He gets a two-year deal worth $3 million to be a back-up for the world champs.
