The 12 Days of Christmas

There are 12 days left until the big Celtics-Lakers game on Christmas day.  So we're kicking off our own version of the "12 Days of Christmas" song.  Each day, we'll add one. On the first day of Christmas, the Celtics gave to me…. A ring for Tony Allen's pinky! Get it?  Tomorrow, we'll see what... [More]

Gotta admit, I was tired of the Cavs taking some of our spotlight with their petty 11-game winning streak. That ended last night, thanks to the Atlanta Hawks. The Celtics put their 14-game streak on the line Monday night at home against the Jazz. Utah maybe 15-10 but they have an unimpressive 5-6 road record.... [More]

Rondo’s Gauntlet

We're all about Voting Rondo around here… and this is the stretch where he's going to have to earn it.  Starting with last night's game, he's facing some tough tests at point. Let's start with last night, where Chris Paul got the better of the matchup.  Paul had 20 points and 14 assists… but some... [More]

No One On The Corner Have Swagga Like Us

We've been hearing it all season long.  The Celtics have a championship swagger.  Last night, the Hornets found out what was all about. Swagger is relentless.  Swagger is focus.  Swagger is absorbing the blows and still moving forward. Last night, the Celtics came out sloppy.  Bad passes were being thrown everywhere.   But they still kept... [More]

Site News: Mother Nature Sucks

Chuck was among the people hit hard by a huge ice storm around here… and I'm heading to the game tonight.  So we apologize in advance if updates are a little sporadic.  But rest assured… Chuck is driving around trying to find some free WiFi to cherry-pick so we can toss something on here. I'll... [More]

More Haters

Man… the haters have come out to play. The latest edition:  "Why you should despise KG" The thing I find most alarming, most despicable, is who the targets of his 'intimidation' (can it even be termed that?) are. Yet to see him try any of this on – or even against – any of the... [More]

Celtics Domination vs. Laker Domination

The Celtics and the Lakers have both come out to ridiculous starts.  But there is a fundamental difference in how the teams respond to in-game adversity. As we saw last night, the C's ratcheted up the defense when the Wizards got close, and ran away with things .   It was a classic display of how... [More]

The Savior is Bitching…Again.

Lakers fans expect Andrew Bynum to be the difference between celebrating a championship and suffering through another heart-wrenching, groin-stomping loss to the Celtics in the Finals. Maybe they should lower their expectations a bit, especially since Bynum isn't good enough to play in crunch time…of regular season games. "I don't understand why I'm not in... [More]

Something IS Wrong With KG’s Knee

As I pointed out earlier tonight, KG wore a larger sleeve on his right knee during tonight's blowout win over the Wizards. He appeared gimpy to my eyes, but I thought it had more to do with my paranoia. However Marc Spears also noticed that something was up: Celtics forward Kevin Garnett doesn't seem to... [More]
