Misusing Rondo?

No one is going to pretend Rajon Rondo had a good game against the Knicks.  It's why he only played 26 minutes. But Ray Allen struggled and he played 37 minutes.  How Rajon is used is the basis for Rich Levine's mock news conference with Doc Rivers. RICH LEVINE: Doc, at what point, in your... [More]

Fred Jones?

Here's a new name for ya.  Fred Jones.  And Dime Magazine says the Celtics should sign him. The Celtics should sign Fred Jones immediately. Seems that all the cheapo Clip Show did was give every other NBA team a look to see what Freddie still had in the tank and frankly, it was a lot... [More]

The KG-Injury Play

The KG-Injury Play

This is the play where KG got hurt.  First of all… you can see he took a knee to the calf  (:06 in) when he jumped into David Lee.  That's some charley horse action right there.  If this is what it looks to be… it's just a bruise and KG will probably wear some sort... [More]

The Blueprint?

Gotta say… I don't like this quote from Ray Allen today: “That’s now the blueprint on how to beat us, so we just have to counter that,” Allen said. “Put a big guy on (Rondo) and just force him to shoot.” I'm not sure if Ray is doing this as a way to send Rondo... [More]
