Report: Orlando wants Doc Rivers

Report: Orlando wants Doc Rivers

ESPN's Chris Broussard says the Orlando Magic want Doc Rivers: The mere mention of Shaq, even if he turns out to be something more than a courtesy candidate, surely (and sadly) overshadows the most interesting part of Broussard's notebook-on-TV report, which revealed that the Magic's secret dream is trying to find a way to convince [...]

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

I probably could have written this post before the last game, but here goes: Bradley traveled with the team, but appeared dejected at this morning's shootaround, and he did not participate. He wouldn't commit to playing in a Game 7 or a potential next series. "I don't think I'll be able to play tonight," Bradley [...]

How to spring KG to get good looks

How to spring KG to get good looks

Kevin Garnett is the key to winning this series.  When he gets the ball in a good position and gets good, open shots.. the Celtics do extremely well.  KG has had some problems establishing the post against Lavoy Allen.  The kid is strong and he has had some success pushing KG out of his comfort [...]

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

You don't score more than 25,000 points in the NBA if you get sensitive about a couple of missed shots.  So it's no real shock (but still awesome to hear) Paul Pierce say this when he was asked about getting out of a slump: I don't never think I'm in a slump. I really don't [...]

Doc burns Shaq on “Inside the NBA”

Doc burns Shaq on “Inside the NBA”

After the Spurs finished off sweeping the Clippers last night, Inside the NBA played this very special ball-busting message from Doc Rivers to Shaquille O'Neal "Also tell Shaq, please, for me, if he had gotten into the type of shape that he was against Barkley, we might have won it last year." If you don't [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where KG can’t tell who’s guarding him

Your Morning Dump… Where KG can’t tell who’s guarding him

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. “It doesn’t matter. All of their big guys are playing physical and bumping,” Garnett said. “You go through side picks and it’s physical. I can’t tell one [...]

Five years later, a look back at what could have been

As we are all wrapped up in the current group of Celtics and what is likely to be their final push for an 18th championship with this core, a discussion with a good friend of mine brought about the potential for what we both felt would be an interesting read for true Celtics fans; yes [...]

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

A lot readers said it. A lot of people during the game were tweeting it.   Why wasn't Brandon Bass in the game down the stretch?  At the time, it appeared Doc was riding his recent small-lineup success to try to generate defensive stops and kick-start a stalled offense with some transition basketball.  But in [...]
