KG = Clutch, Joe Johnson = Choke

Joe Johnson missed a potentially game tying free throw with 2 seconds left, paving the way for the Celtics 16th straight win. KG (18 pts, 8 reb, 2 blks) was the man for the C's, dropping 10 points in the fourth quarter including a half-hook shot that put Boston ahead with :30 left. "Beastondo" teamed... [More]

Paul Pierce, Renaissance Man

Upside and Motor is a damn fine NBA blog that, unlike us, puts effort into original ideas.  To be fair, though, they probably haven't sniffed NEARLY as much glue. So they came up with this thing today that is absolutely fascinating.  They broke down classifications of every kind of player… and arranged it in a... [More]

A Nickname For Perk & Rondo

Rich Levine of Comcast SportsNet has begun the search for a nickname for the other two guys in our starting lineup. With their emergence this season, they deserve far more than the title of the "other two starters." All good heroes need a sidekick and Perk and Rondo have proved themselves more than worthy.

Unfinished Business

It's the go-to digg at the Boston Celtics.  Any time people want to bring up any possible weakness. "Remember… this is a team that was taken to 7 games by the Hawks last year." My initial reaction is to tell those people to go fornicate themselves.  But, the truth is, they have a point.  The... [More]

Celtics Shopping Giddens

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports has the report. The Celtics have offered their first-round pick, J.R. Giddens, around the league for a future first-round pick. So far, there are no takers.

Can We Add Rondo To The List Now?

I'm going to keep this brief.  I think Rajon Rondo can officially be classified as being "in the class" of Deron Williams and Chris Paul.  My interpretation of that is simple:  On any given night, any of those guys could outplay the other.  Rondo has torched Paul, and Paul has torched Rondo.  Williams has torched...

Rondo Rocks Utah, Pierce Injured

Deron Williams was getting back in the groove over the past 10 days, averaging a double-double. But tonight, Deron and the Jazz got Rondo'd. How's this for a stat line? 25 pts, 7-14 FG, 11-15 FT, 9 reb, 8 assists, 3 stls. 14 of those  points came in the 4th quarter as the Celtics wrapped... [More]

When The Hell Did The NBA Become The NHL?

Jeez… I'm starting to think the next loss will put Doc's job in jeopardy.  Reggie Theus has been canned. Reggie Theus has been fired as coach of the Sacramento Kings, according to NBA coaching sources. Assistant coach Kenny Natt will be elevated to interim coach, sources said. So 6 coaches have now been axed before... [More]
