Your Morning Dump… Sorry, Minnesota, Kevin Garnett is a Celtic

Your Morning Dump… Sorry, Minnesota, Kevin Garnett is a Celtic

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. Another point was made clear last night: These guys didn’t just play for the Celtics; they are Celtics. Just as Derek Jeter is a Yankee, just as [...]

TBT: The 1998-99 Celtics “Praise You”

TBT: The 1998-99 Celtics “Praise You”

Gotta love those pesky Celtics from 1998-99. They finished 19-31 under Quick Rick in the lockout shortened season. Ron Mercer was such an amazing athlete. He must have had a shitty work ethic. I think I was at the Heat game where Toine nailed the game-winning triple. If you have an usual interest in the [...]

Add ice cream, wedding cake and untying shoelaces to the legend of Larry Bird

Add ice cream, wedding cake and untying shoelaces to the legend of Larry Bird

In Jack McCallum’s book about the 1990-91 Celtics and there are a couple of fantastic stories about Larry Bird. The first tale involves an aging Legend’s battle with staying in shape: “I think I wanna be active,” said Bird. “What I might do, though, is git in shape, git outta shape, then git in shape [...]

The Celtics had a ton of offensive rebounds last night

The Celtics had a ton of offensive rebounds last night

The Celtics had 22 offensive rebounds in last night’s loss to the Pelicans. 22. Twenty-two.  That’s more than double their average. We haven’t seen an ORB number like that since 2008. Offensive rebounding was never a priority for Doc Rivers. He cared more about getting back on defense than hitting the glass. It’s hard to argue [...]
