Be Like Jon Barry

Despite my partner's best attempts to lift my spirits, my confidence in the Celtics to repeat remained shaky. But that all changed once I read Jon Barry's article in Daily Dime: Boston Celtics Biggest Concern: Injuries I see Boston as the most mentally tough team. Still, I don't think the Stephon Marbury experiment is going... [More]

Accentuating The Positive

Ok, so things aren't exactly going the way we want them to.  Some people, like John Hollinger, seem all to happy to focus on the negative… like the Celtics 22-14 record since Christmas. But I'm a positive person.  The Celtics are only 2.5 games behind Cleveland, and they've hung around despite injuries to key players... [More]

Call Me Corny…

…but I loved those "One Shining Moment" montages produced by CBS after the NCAA basketball title game. The dude who created it just passed away, but I'm sure the highlites will live forever.

Something’s Gotta Give

Chuck's been hammering Doc for playing Paul and Ray too much… and rigthly so.  Today, I guess it's my turn. I'll say right up front that Gabe Pruitt and Bill Walker didn't exactly light it up last night.  I can't remember how many times a ball hit one of those guys in the hands and... [More]

Running on Empty

Thanks to a red hot Ray Allen (24 of his 27 pts) and Leon Powe (13 of his 23 pts), the Celtics held a 5 point halftime lead over the Heat. But the Celtics came out of the lockeroom with the intensity of a girl scout troop. Miami started hitting all their jumpers and surged... [More]
