36 Minutes Won’t Be Enough Forever

Alright Celtics… a lot of us are getting together today to send you a message:  playing 36 minutes a night has been fine so far… but it ain't gonna work all season long.  And since I'm just some jagoff who mashes his fists into a keyboard hoping the result will be coherent, I'm going to let Scott Souza do the talking.

In six of Boston's first eight games, including each of the last four, the Celtics have trailed after the first quarter. Somewhat stunningly, they have gone on to win seven of their eight games overall, including those last four. While the repeated second efforts are indicative of what great teams do, the trend of falling behind almost every night and finding a way to rally can only continue for so long.

If I may just sum that up:  get your asses in gear early… and maybe you can take the LAST 12 minutes of the game off… rather than the first 12.  K?

On to the business we Bostonions are really good at:  pissing everyone else off.   Every single member of the Celtics starting 5 is on the All Star Ballot.  May I humbly propose a massive effort to vote them all into the game?  Would anything be more awesome?  Get the word out.  Stuff the ballot boxes.  PerkIsABeast… get Perk into a funny YouTube campaign.  This is going to take a coordinated effort people… and Lord knows I sure as hell can't organize it.  Last thing I tried to organize was my nephew's 4th birthday party… anring-fingerd his mom didn't appreciate the strippers.

While we're at it… let's all give Gary Payton a collective middle finger for implying that Rajon Rondo doesn't deserve his ring.

    Hey, newsflash here.. Every single member of the Atlanta Hawks starting 5 is on the All Star Ballot as well. Not that special, Celtics.

    Before the Celtics – Rockets game last week Payton was talking about how much he thinks Rondo is overrated. After Rondo’s great first half he didn’t mention it at halftime. I used to respect Payton a lot, now he is just acting like a baby, probably because the Celtics didn’t sign him last season. I guess he just hates the fact that Rondo is playing damn good basketball and he has to work for NBA TV with no broadcasting skills on a NBA broadcast with worse production value than Bobcats games on the WB or MY-RDC or whatever that channel is called now. What nerve that guy has.

  • Hey newsflash Mike… the part I was talking about came AFTER the part you quoted.
    Now… I know it took you the hour and a half after I posted to sound out that sentence you referenced… but please know what the fuck I’m trying to do here before you run your yap.
    Honestly… is there mercury in the drinking water in Atlanta or something? Is paste on the lunch menu? I’ve seen some dicks from other teams come around here… but wow… some of these Hawks fans are complete dolts.
    Wait…. are you Mike Bibby?
    That might explain it.

    Ohhh SNAP!!!!

    Hey, man….don’t worry about the strippers. It’s the thought that counts.

  • Lakerhater

    Josh is right- WTF GP? Lost a lot of respect for the glove after this.
    But on to tonight’s business:
    Rondo’s better….
    Rondo’s better….

    i like the new name bestowed upon me “newsflash mike”… i will be using that moniker from here forward… now to the task at hand, this evenings game. I will admit (I’m a realest) that the game will be tough without Josh Smith down low against The Great Finger Wagger and Taunter of Spainards (dude, that guy acts 12 years old grow up Garnett, seriously, you represent a great historic franchise.. you guys put up with that shit?) The game will be tough, but the Celtics do not have the athleticism to beat the Hawks on a consistent basis anymore. The Celtics are the far superior team when it comes to execution and team defense. The hawks D has vastly improved this year but will not be great without Josh for the next couple weeks. So my humble prediction upon further contemplation is the Hawks MAY lose tonight, but WILL NOT LOSE THE SEASON SERIES OR A PLAYOFF SERIES AGAINST THE OLD GUYS. Just my humble opinion. Go Hawks.

    Perk doesn’t have to beat out Yao… hes in the west We’re in the east.
    perks main competition would come from DHoward and Jermaine O’neal, Al Horford, Big Z maybe? I don’t know I mean I would LOVE to see the celtics starting 5 all get voted in but realistically its not going to happen. Would be real happy to see Rondo get in there though, he deserves it and fuck gary payton, the guy turned into exactly who he was hating on. He towel waaved and backed up jwilliams on the heat championship run. Rondo started and was setting finals records in assists and steals, enough said
