Playing It Cool

Everyone is well aware that the Celtics are G-D awesome.  They're almost as awesome as that picture… and playing it almost as cool as that kid.  Scott Souza notes in the Globe OT, that you can't ask the Celtics a question about their current streak or record without them going into full Belichick/Patriots "stick to...

Why Mutombo Makes Sense

Asked if he had talked with Mutombo, Rivers replied, "Always. He's a good friend. He's going to come back. I talked to him last week – he will come back. "We're over the [salary] cap so it's tough for us to do a lot of stuff, but we're looking at everybody." I'm still trying to... [More]

A Lotta Oops This Year

I don't have any official stats, but after watching KG and Rondo connect on that alley oop last night… I thought to myself "Damn… Rondo's thrown a lot of oops to KG this year" I know they torched the Pacers  a couple of times.  Then they dusted off that same play against Portland (pictured).  Last...

Why Kevin McHale Is A Bad GM

I'm on record:  I hate that Kevin McHale is now a joke in the NBA.  But when he does things like blame bloggers for the spate of coach firings, it's kinda easy to see why. “I think you’re going to see more and more shorter term stuff in our league,” he said. “Just because the... [More]

“This Is Not A Rivalry”

Kevin Garnett clearly wanted to make a point.  When the Globe asked him about a Celtics-Hawks rivalry, he said: "This is not a rivalry.  [The Hawks] are a very good team, they play with a lot of confidence and swagger. Joe Johnson is one of the best in the business and they cause a lot... [More]

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]

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]

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.
