Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

CSNNE does a wonderful job getting us ready for tonight’s game with a nice, four-minute video contrasting the introductions of each newly constructed Celtics and Heat team.  It’s pretty much all you need to know about each team, and why one has found success while the other is… well… struggling with the whole thing right [...]

Reliving KG’s craziest moments

Reliving KG’s craziest moments

Earlier this year, Complex.com published video clips of Kevin Garnett’s 15 Craziest Moments. With KG dominating the 2012 NBA playoffs in ways only he can, I figure it’s a good time to relive the insanity. The video above is Rajon Rondo’s reaction to hearing Garnett’s screams from the next room. It’s #15 on the list and [...]

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

I had a private conversation last night with someone who was forced to admit something that we should all know isn’t true anyway. Numbers don’t mean everything. That’s not to say numbers, in this case the advanced stats movement that has swept NBA journalism, aren’t important.  They are.  They say a lot.  They tell us [...]

I DIDN'T believe in this team, I [...]

Doc: Last year’s team would be out of the playoffs already

Doc: Last year’s team would be out of the playoffs already

Doc Rivers has, from time to time, shown he’s not entirely fond of last year’s Celtics team.  He’ll tell you flat out that last year’s team was more talented than this one, but this one actually plays together.  In a conference call today, less than a day removed from a tough, gritty win to even [...]
