The Preservation of Kevin Garnett

The Celtics need KG for more than defense.  They need him for energy… so sitting out the last three 4th quarters will go a long way to making sure he has the energy to give. It's part testament to his greatness, part over-reliance on him to carry the team emotionally.  But that's where the Celtics... [More]

How’s Our Ass Taste?

With Phoenix playing back-to-back road games and their 4th game in 5 nights, we knew the Celtics had a very good chance to win this one. But I didn't expect Phoenix to lay down quite like this. Boston College would have put up more of a fight. The Celtics led by 15 after 1, 30... [More]

The All Star Jerseys

Apparently… these things are hi-tech (a.k.a. "ugly") From Men's Fitness: Together, the jersey and shorts are 31% lighter than the typical NBA uniform. Before, layers of twill were sewn together, bogging down the garment. Now added elements, like conference names and player numbers, are bonded on with a heated glue. From a comfort standpoint, the...

The Nudist Is At It Again

Celtics-hater and assumed-nudist Charley Rosen is at it again… this time as he hands out his "mid term grades." BOSTON tried to run a marathon like it was a sprint. Anyway, their frontcourt subs are still too short, and if James Posey is sorely missed already, wait until the playoffs arrive. Grade: C-minus The Celtics... [More]

This Is Why Ray’s Hot

When the Celtics offense is REALLY humming, Ray Allen is really scoring.  In the Celtics funk, Ray was ice cold.  In the past 5 games, he's been really hot.  And I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but the past 5 games have also involved a lot more 2-point shots than he usually takes. Ray's... [More]
