Hey Perk… Shut Up

I'm gonna be quick about this because I've ranted on it before, but apparently it's still a problem.  Perk is up to 8 techs after yesterday.  Suspensions start at 16… so he's half way there.  And no, I don't care that he might not have deserved it: “This is one I’m calling in, because I... [More]

Raptors Still Junior Varsity

By the time I flipped on this game (late 3rd quarter), it was over. When the Celtics shoot 60+ percent from the field, they aren't going to lose to anybody. How's that for astute commentary? Box Score | Recap Feel free to post some legitimate analysis in the comments.... [More]

Disappointing Raps About To Be More Disappointed

It's way too early to write a team off… unless you're Oklahoma City.  But no one can help but expect the NBA to come out and match their… well… expectations.  We wanted to see Philly and Toronto fighting it out at 9-3 or 8-4 right now so we could point to the standings and say... [More]

Payroll Breakdown

Here's the research on the Celtics payroll I should have done earlier this morning. Screw 2010, let's look at next season when Powe and Davis will be free-agents. You gotta think only one will be here next year.... [More]

Welcome Back

Rajon Rondo is on fire lately.  He's aggressive… he's scoring… he's defending… he's distributing.  He's playing the kind of game that had all of us giddy this preseason.  What has changed?  I'll let him explain. As most of you know, I had a few off games where I just wasn't getting it done. I didn't... [More]

What About The Now?

Did you hear the Knicks will have enough salary-cap room in 2010 to sign LeBron, D-Wade, Chris Bosh, Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson? I can only laugh at these teams gearing up for that magical free-agent signing period after the 2010 season. For the mathmatically challenged, the NBA will award two championship trophies before those... [More]

That Was Easy

The Celtics made up for a hideous first half by absolutely dominating the T-Wolves in the 3rd quarter. Did anyone really think this game was in danger? And how can you not feel bad for Al Jefferson? Not only is he stuck in Minnesota, but he has to play with Sebastian Telfair every night. Box... [More]

Knicks De-Zekeing, Clippers Still Clippering

Ever pull out some old clothesline or rope and find it full of a million knots?  That's pretty much what Donnie Walsh found when he inherited the Knicks from Isiah Thomas.  Donnie undid two of those knots by trading Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph in separate deals with the Warriors and Clippers.  In return, the...

Bill Walker Headed to D-League

Walker is joining J.R. Giddens with the Utah Flash: “It’s not a demotion at all. So you have you to get that out your mind,” Walker said before Thursday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. “It’s the reason that why they created the D-League, so that instead of having guys sitting on the bench, not staying...

Winning the ‘Ship = Swagger

WEEI's Jessica Camerato has a great blog on the Celtics swagger. There are those who understand it … like someone who's been there before and can appreciate the pride of defending a title…. “You're always going to have that [swagger], no matter who it is,” he (Rasheed Wallace) said. “Whenever you win that 'ship, you're...
