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 [...]

Can the rooks make the Bradley leap next season?

Can the rooks make the Bradley leap next season?

Lost in all the talk about the upcoming draft, what the Celtics will do with the picks, a need to get younger, and the need to begin rebuilding, is the fact that the Celtics were able to land two serviceable prospects in LAST years draft.  JaJuan Johnson and E’Twuan Moore gave  Celtics fans some flashes of [...]

Dooling: Celtics “fell short to pure talent”

Dooling: Celtics “fell short to pure talent”

Keyon Dooling is still preaching, and the good reverend still believes in his (maybe former) squad, telling the Miami Herald.  “Our team was built to last,” Celtics guard Keyon Dooling says. “Experience, togetherness, will, drive. We peaked at the right time. We had the right group of guys together …” But? “We fell short to pure talent,” Dooling [...]

Photo Gallery: Best of 2011-12 season

This is the final collection of GIFs from the 2011-12 C’s. These photos represent some of the best plays from the Celtics’ 2011-12 regular season. I went through GIFs from just about every single game and picked-out the best moments. They are not ranked in any particular order. I’m sure I probably missed some, but [...]

Four years ago today, anything was possible

Four years ago today, anything was possible

I can’t believe this happened FIVE four years ago. A lot has happened in five four years.  We came one knee injury short of another serious run and another knee injury short of, probably, another title. That stuff, unfortunately, happens. We’ll always have 2008, though, when we made it, Ma… we became certified… and anything was [...]

Video: Celtics thank the fans

Video: Celtics thank the fans

The Celtics tweeted out this video a little while ago.  It’s a nice thank you to the fans.  Not gonna lie… I’m a little upset that I’m posting this today and not in a couple of weeks with some clips of the parade.  I’m suddenly not as ok with things as I was earlier today.  I [...]

To the team I never wanted to love, but did

To the team I never wanted to love, but did

I’ve tried to write this piece, probably, 20 times by now.  I don’t know how to start it.  I don’t know how to properly capture what this team is or was.  What I do know is… when it was over, I loved these guys.  And I never really intended to. Here’s the season in a [...]
