Bob Ryan: Celtics trying to trade up for Harrison Barnes

Bob Ryan: Celtics trying to trade up for Harrison Barnes

During an appearance last night on CSNNE, Bob Ryan stated the Celtics are high on North Carolina swingman Harrison Barnes. It’s going to take more than the Celtics 21st and 22nd picks to land Barnes. There’s a report that Charlotte is considering Barnes with the 2nd pick. Ryan had some scathing criticism for Brandon Bass: I’m [...]

It’s official: Bass will opt out

  This is as surprising as Chuck ordering another beer… While there has been considerable speculation as to what Bass will do this summer, his agent tells CSNNE.com that the 6-foot-8 forward plans to not opt-in to the final year of his contract, and thus test the free agent waters. However, all indications are that [...]

E’Twaun Moore wants a bigger role next year (and should get one)

E’Twaun Moore wants a bigger role next year (and should get one)

I know… I could write a headline saying “a starving person hopes for more food next year” and it would make just as much sense.  Of course E’Twaun wants a bigger role.  Garbage time minutes, especially when you had a few good games earlier in the season, are not anyone’s goal.

Words KG said: “Last train stops in Boston”

While we’re all waiting for what Kevin Garnett might do, Jay (MrTrpleDouble10) and his encyclopedic memory reminded me of this interview KG did back on media day in 2010.  It ends with this: Is this your last stop, the last place you want to be? Yup, this is it. Last train stops in Boston The facts [...]

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 [...]
