“I Have No Intention Of Cutting Scal”

Boom There it is. From Danny Ainge himself.  Want more? "We think Scal can help us. Last year when KG got hurt, Scal started and we were 7-2 in those games. Our team defense was even better. I’m not saying he’s a better defensive player than KG, but we were able to maintain things and... [More]

Shocker: Rondo Will Return

Danny Ainge says the Celtics will exercise the $2 million option in Rajon Rondo's contract for the 2009-10 season and they will do it before this season starts.

Celtics Are The NBA’s Gisele

Big props to Cuzoogle for one hillarious season preview: While most teams live up or live down to what is written about them, injuries and trades are variables that are hard to predict. So assuming nobody else gets hurt and no trades are made (humour us) here is how Cuzoogle sees the season going for NBA teams... [More]

Perkins Back, Leon Rocks

Because the Red Sox are getting their asses kicked, I watched much more of the Celtics game than planned. Ray played well. Play was fairly sloppy in the second half. Kendrick Perkins looked like his old self – 5 rebounds, 4 fouls in 21 minutes. Leon (so much for that hand injury, I'm beginning to... [More]

Oh Boo Hoo

We love Bill "You Tube" Walker.  He's a scrappy, aggressive, and he takes no crap from anyone. Is that the view of him through green glasses?  It is if you ask Brett Edwards at FanHouse.  Dude, it's pre-season, and you're a rookie. Stop starting brawls in the first quarter and show a little respect, my... [More]

Big Improvements

One of the question marks going into the preseason was our low post play.  How will Perk's shoulder be?  What's Patrick O'Bryant going to really do for us?  Will Glen Davis and Leon Powe continue their surprising progression? We'll start finding out about Perk's shoulder later this week… and Leon is making the most of... [More]
