The Week in Review

The final week of preseason basketball is finally behind us (which means no more poems by John). The Celtics said goodbye to Mike Sweetney and hello to Ty Lue.

In the Sport's Guy's basketball preview, he has the 62-win Celtics beating the Cavaliers in the Eastern conference finals, but losing to the San... [More]

Perk’s influences: KG… Eddy Curry… Kwame Brown. Wait, WHAT???

Celtics.com recently put up their conversation with Kendrick Perkins… and one of the first questions is "who were some of the guys who were big influences in getting you to the NBA?"
