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 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is “a players’ coach who will kick your ass.”

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is “a players’ coach who will kick your ass.”

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. In the Atlanta series, when Bass failed to close out on a Josh Smith 3-pointer late in the third quarter, Rivers yanked him from the game. Bass thought he [...]

Celtics use the draft to plant seeds in future free agents’ heads

Celtics use the draft to plant seeds in future free agents’ heads

This is why the people who run basketball teams are infinitely smarter than idiot bloggers like me.  Because I would be going to to things like the NBA draft combine and focusing primarily on figuring out who the Celtics could draft at picks 21 and 22.  But the Celtics and the Spurs, two of the most [...]

Celtics targeting Spurs’ Green?

Celtics targeting Spurs’ Green?

It’s that time of year, unfortunately… time to talk about potential free agent targets.  One of the nuggets in yesterday’s Globe had to do with one of those potential targets… Spurs swing man Danny Green. An emerging player on the Celtics’ radar could be San Antonio restricted free agent Danny Green, who had a solid [...]

So what now? Who stays and who goes as many contracts set to expire

So what now? Who stays and who goes as many contracts set to expire

So after you are done sticking the Lebron James voodoo doll, trying to find a way to set Delonte and Gloria James up, looking at photo comparisons of Chris Bosh and an ostrich….it is time to look at what lies ahead for the Boston Celtics. This Summer could be one of the most turbulent and [...]

Mannix: Rondo and Ray didn’t get along

During an appearance this morning on WEEI, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix hinted at a riff between Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen: “There is going to be a ton of interest in Ray Allen in the offseason,” Mannix said. “He’s going to be able to pick and choose where he wants to play.” Allen conceivably could [...]

Doc Rivers: Master motivator

Doc Rivers: Master motivator

Doc Rivers has this way of gauging the temperature of the room, and saying just the right thing to get people’s attention. Remember back in April when we all watched the Celtics lose to the Bulls by 7 and we chalked it up to just another “not enough in the tank” game?  Doc came out [...]

Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

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.
