The Best Scorer Ever?

Is Paul Pierce the best scorer in Celtics history?  That's what's being debated on  Globe 10.0. I've heard Tommy Heinsohn call Pierce that.  I can certainly see the argument.  He's not the shooter Bird was, but he's definitely better going to the hoop.  Interesting debate.... [More]

People Just Hate Boston

People Just Hate Boston

Let's face it… people hate Boston now.  Probably a product of all the winning we do (and lines like the one I just wrote… especially when accompanied by the douchey smirk currently on my face.)

Yes – another post about Ray and Paul's minutes and Doc's inability to reduce them. We all believe these 3-4 weeks of rest for KG will pay dividends in the playoffs (provided the muscle strain fully recovers). But there's a good chance Ray and Paul will be exhausted come May.

Rondo May Return Wednesday

I don't know who Liam Martin's source was, but it wasn't Rajon Rondo… because Rajon says the Orlando game is the ONLY game he plans on missing. "It wasn't that bad," Rondo said of the injury he sustained Friday night. "I'm planning on [Wednesday]. I'm getting treatment." That link starts out about Kevin Garnett, and... [More]
