Report: Rondo Extension By Oct. 31 Unlikely

Via Chris Sheridan of ESPN: The Celtics' Rajon Rondo has become a potential All-Star after just three years in the league.

Fight! Mo Williams vs Shelden Williams

Fight! Mo Williams vs Shelden Williams

I can't blame Mo Williams for losing his cool. His Cavaliers are getting embarrassed by an undermanned Celtics team. The Celtics lead this one 56-48 at the half, minus Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Glen Davis. The lead would be 18 if the referees weren't in awe of Shaq and giving him ridiculous calls. Two... [More]

Sports Illustrated Likes the Celtics

Ian Thomsen of Sports Illustrated is picking the Celtics to win it all: I'm picking the Celtics because they should be the best defensive team in the league based on the return of Kevin Garnett, the arrival of Rasheed Wallace, the continuing improvement of Rajon Rondo — who could emerge as the top defensive point...

Doc likes Sweets

Yeah… as in Michael Sweetney.  So tweets Adrian Wojnarowski. Doc Rivers sounds determined to keep Mike Sweetney. Celts plan had been to help him lose more weight and hope he could contribute by midyear And then he asks the obvious question.

“Marquis will have a tremendous impact”

It's funny, we've seen and heard a lot about Marquis Daniels… but his potential impact still hasn't been a national topic of conversation.  Maybe it will be now that Adrian Wojnarowski saw him play with the C's in person. Here at MSG and Doc Rivers is right: Marquis Daniels will have a tremendous impact on... [More]

“Blow these (expletives) out!”

Can you guess who screamed those words in the headline during the 3rd quarter of last night's loss to the Knicks? It was KG, according to the Herald's Steve Bulpett, who issued the directive after the Celts took a six point lead. But KG's words fell on deaf ears. Like I stated in last night's... [More]
