How Do We Distract LeBron?

This is a comment from 'MA' in our last post: I’ll be there – 1 row behind Mommy’s Boy LeBron – screaming my brains out. I wonder what I can do to distract him? I think that's an excellent question.  Let's get some ideas. ... [More]

If It’s Up To Us… Then So Be It

Fans always refer to their teams in inclusive terms. "We can't win on the road."  "We'll get them in Game 5" "Our offense can look so bad some times" We've seen the Celtics suck on the road.  We've heard them say how much they're affected by the crowd.  So I say forget all the going... [More]

Opening For Eddie

We have been asking for it… and Doc Rivers may be seeing it as well.  If all Sam Cassell is doing off the bench is shooting rather than running our offense… then we might as well have Eddie House in there. “As a coach you always have the Sam-and-Eddie question. If Sam is playing well,... [More]

Lip Readers Beware

Lip Readers Beware

Every replay of Kevin Garnett includes an f-bomb.  In fact… you're lucky if you only got one.  I once counted 3 mother f-bombs in a 10 second replay.  But… these are the playoffs… and everything is magnified.  So this clip (via Odenized) is one of about a bazillion of KG out there saying something unsavory. ...

Fire… BAD!

David Stern doesn't like the pregame pyrotechnics.  "It may be that these are the maniacal rantings of a fan from a different era, and I recognize that, but you know I'm sitting there waiting for the next cannon to go off, and then the fire heats up the arena so the temperature in the arena...

Now Just Hold On One Minute

I will take umbrage with Ian Thomsen's assessment of the Celtics: To state the obvious: These Boston Celtics are not a championship team. It's a huge surprise after their dominance of the regular season, but under the defensive pressure of the playoffs their three stars have lost all feeling for how to play off one... [More]

Your Biggest Strength Is Your Biggest Weakness

Your Biggest Strength Is Your Biggest Weakness

When you look at these Boston Celtics… especially our 'Big 3'… you realize how true that saying is.  And when you're under stress… like on the road in a playoff series… those weaknesses show themselves.  When you're comfortable… like when you're home… those strengths carry you. Kevin Garnett:  Emotion Few of us have seen anything... [More]

Plenty Of Blame To Go Around

Everyone wants look for one scapegoat after losing a winnable game on the road… but this one has plenty of them.  Here they are… in no particular order. Doc Rivers:  I've said in the past that we got Sam Cassell…. because we needed a back up point guard.  But I think its time for everyone... [More]

All Even

Not much to say after this one, except we witnessed another crappy effort by the Celtics. The Cavaliers played great defense, got exceptional bench play and made clutch baskets in their 88-77 victory in Game 4. Let's get right to the analysis criticism: -Ray Allen looks 55 years old. Not only is he shooting poorly (4-10... [More]

How To Win On The Road

With all this talk about the Celtics forgetting how to win on the road… I figured I'd take the opportunity to remind them.  Do what you always do You've heard me say it before… but it bears repeating… and it extends to off-the-court.  Do the things you always to do keep you relaxed and focused. ...
