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 [...]

Enemy Chatter: Good job! Good effort!

Enemy Chatter: Good job! Good effort!

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. The Miami Heat hit their lowest point of the postseason on Tuesday night but one young child was there to provide a "glass is half full" assessment despite the demoralizing circumstances. As [...]

Celtics pride returns….how I was so wrong about this team

Celtics pride returns….how I was so wrong about this team

While most fans right now are trying to pretend that December, January, February and March didn't exist, that they weren't calling for this team to be blown up like Hiroshima and that they "believed all along" I'll be one of the few to step up and say…I didn't. 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 [...]

Giving Pietrus some of the credit he deserves

Giving Pietrus some of the credit he deserves

Mickael Pietrus is a funny guy.   I don't just mean that in a "he makes everyone laugh" kind of way, although, he certainly does that.  I mean it in a polite, flummoxed way.  He has the ability to put the ball to the floor and drive, but he doesn't because he says he's been [...]

Miami media are not fans of the Garden

Miami media are not fans of the Garden

This series has me flashing back to the mid 80s and I love it. First, the Heat staff complained about the temperature in the Garden for Friday's shootaround. Now, we are getting complaints about the quality of the floor.  Somewhere Red Auerbach is smiling. [...]

Enemy Chatter: The Heat suddenly miss Chris Bosh

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Miami. On a night when the Boston Celtics were determined to hit the Heat literally where they're hurting by pounding the ball inside to Kevin Garnett, Miami had no options to [...]

Got an issue with the refs? Do something about it

Got an issue with the refs? Do something about it

We’ve all had problems in our lives. We either accept them, complain about them, which accomplishes nothing, or we hit them head on and resolve them. That’s the decision Celtics fans, for that matter all NBA fans, face when it comes to the quality of officiating in what’s marketed as the world’s greatest basketball league. [...]
