Red's Army

Like Old Times

While the Celtics and Pistons mucked it up for 3 quarters, I fought hard to stay awake (Yes…I am that lame on a Friday night). Then it happened. Perk body slammed Jason Maxiell midway through the 4th. I awoke and so did the crowd at the Palace. Perk was ejected for the flagrant 2. Once... [More]

The NBA Hates Its Rookies

Don't get me wrong… I'd kill to be good enough at basketball to wear ANY jersey… and I'm happy that kid won a contest to design the uniforms. But you gotta think Derrick Rose is picking that thing up and thinking "I gotta where this thing?  It looks like a night gown." (Via BallDon'tLie)... [More]

Rip Hamilton Is Gross

Ray Allen and Eddie House are both hot.  Ray Allen and Eddie House are now wearing those ridiculous shooting sleeves.  Eddie says he's wearing it because his elbow is sore and he'll take it off when his arm feels right.  Ray has a much more disgusting reason. Allen began wearing the sleeve on his left... [More]

Ray Gets Screwed

Paul Pierce is the only other Celtic joining Kevin Garnett at the All-Star game. Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo didn't make the cut. Here are the rest of the East reserves: Chris Bosh Joe Johnson Danny Granger Jameer Nelson Rashard Lewis Devin Harris Yes….Rashard Lewis. Am I the only one suprised? Here's a look at... [More]

Kobe Fears Dog Poop

Here's a blurb from Kobe Bryant's interview with Complex.com (whatever that is): Complex.com: Talk to me about a private failure that wasn't in the headlines, the thing that just keeps you up at night. Something people can relate to. Not necessarily a public thing, but a thing you twist and turn over. Kobe Bryant: [Long... [More]

Anyone Hiring A Tiny Acrobat?

We got an email about this… but the Celtics prefer to respond to "legitimate" outlets like the Globe. Basketball sources confirmed to the Globe today that the Celtics have dismissed Damon Blust, the man who played mascot Lucky the Leprechaun. The Globe is investigating the reason for Blust's departure.... [More]

The Courtship of Eddie’s Jumper

My latest piece on The Examiner Eddie is 22 of 32 from downtown over his past 4 games.  And that includes a "night off" in Orlando (0 for 3).  Let's be clear here.  You're not supposed to shoot 7-11 from three-point land twice in a week.  And you're definitely not supposed to follow those up...

Don’t Do It Eddie

"Eddie's in a special place right now, and I know how he feels. It feels like every time he shoots, it's going to go in, no matter who's on him, who he is playing against. I can tell the way he's shooting it that he feels that every shot is going to go in." That's... [More]

Rondo Makes His Case

Rajon Rondo (24 pts, 10-15 FG, 9 assists, 1 TO) sure looked like an All-Star in this one. I'm hoping the coaches who have yet to make up their mind check out the highlights from the Celtics 119-100 win over the Kings. Unlike most of the games in this 9 game winning streak, the Celtics... [More]
