Boston Strong

Boston Strong

On the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, all of us here at Red’s Army send strength, prayers and well wishes to all those affected. It is a somber day here in Boston, but the great people of this city are doing whatever it takes to comfort those in need. I took a [...]

Pat Riley won’t be celebrating this 20th anniversary

Pat Riley won’t be celebrating this 20th anniversary

The 1994 version of the Celtics were winding down their relatively innocuous season.  They weren’t quite bad enough to be in the mix to win the lottery, and not good enough to qualify for the NBA playoffs.  They were in the worst possible place: NBA mediocrity.  The New York Knicks were at the apex of [...]

The franchise record 18-game losing streak in 2007 was bad, but this is worse

The franchise record 18-game losing streak in 2007 was bad, but this is worse

Ask any Celtics fan what the ultimate streak of futility is in the history of the storied franchise and they’ll be able to reel off the number and year as quickly as naming the amount of NBA leading championships they have.  Ironically, those numbers are nearly identical (18 for the losing streak, 17 for the [...]

Celtics legend JoJo White recovering from brain surgery

After an incredible decade that ended with the Celtics winning every year save for one (1967), there were lots of questions to be answered and lots of holes to fill following the end of the 1960′s.  Bill Russell had retired as player and head coach along with Sam Jones.  The Celtics were going to need [...]

A Proud Loser

A Proud Loser

Losing, and the act of being a loser is often one of the most shameful and disappointing feelings one can feel, both as a player and a fan of that losing team. As competitors, whether it be baseball, basketball, or in the form of racing that I do myself, losing is one of the worst [...]

Celtics look to end another 22-game win streak

Five years ago to the day the Celtics were facing a Houston Rockets team that put together an unlikely 22-game win streak, good for second best in NBA history.  The night before, they had come back from being down 20-plus points against the Spurs in San Antonio.  In one of his first games as a [...]

Does Ray belong in the rafters?

Does Ray belong in the rafters?

As Ray Allen continues to flap his gums now that he is surrounded by the games biggest prima-donnas, one has to wonder if he is not only burning the bridge, but blowing the thing sky-high between he and Boston. The burns were bad enough that Ray opted to take less money to join the Celtics [...]

Happy Birthday, Red

Happy Birthday, Red

Today would have been the 95th birthday of our site’s namesake, Red Auerbach. We take great pride in our name and the tribute it pays to Red.  Red is our leader.  He is our general.  Even in death, his ideals… even the tricky ones… define what we think the Celtics organization should always strive to [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where a trail blazer gets his due

Your Morning Dump… Where a trail blazer gets his due

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. While in Lexington, Barksdale was not permitted to live with his Olympic teammates. He had to tell the owners of the home where he was staying that [...]

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

Missing Larry, and what he represents, 20 years later

This still bums me out. I’m so happy Larry Bird doesn’t play today.  Somehow, some way, people would over-analyze him, overreact to him, and over-emphasize things that aren’t important about him. The back injury that ultimately shortened his career?  He hurt it putting up a retaining wall at his Indiana home… when he easily could [...]
