LeBron James making excuses

LeBron James making excuses

Sometimes I read things LeBron says and I have a reaction and I think… I'd better go back and read this again just to make sure i'm not overreacting.  This was one of those times.  But no matter how much I read this, it still sounds a whole lot like excuses. "It's been challenging not just for [...]

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

This play was all kinds of amazing in a very short time:   The block by Wade on the Bass dunk attempt?  Nasty?  Rondo recognizing in the span of less than two seconds, that Mickael Pietrus is in the corner and then slapping it to him while getting fouled (how big was THAT no-call??) was [...]

Paul Pierce drops a dagger in Lebron’s eye

Oh my… If the Celtics are able to close out this series, we're gonna be talking about this shot for a long time. Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, not 7 years… but for a long time. (Video courtesy @jose3030) [...]

Celtics win the craziest F’ing playoff game I’ve ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Celtics win the craziest F’ing playoff game I’ve ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Do you know what just happened?  Does anyone? I'll repeat what I said on Twitter earlier during the game.  I've never seen a team so close in a basketball game but teeter so close to total collapse like the Celtics did all night.  They had a million chances to fold, and it looked like they'd [...]

Enemy Chatter:  Bosh had better find himself a cape

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 With a healthy 6-foot-11 Bosh in the fold, the Heat's attack can be stabilized again. The question is, will he be healthy? The truth is we don't know; heck, the [...]

Recap: The grittiest and ballsiest win yet

Recap: The grittiest and ballsiest win yet

Three reasons the Celtics won this game: Grit and balls. Balls and grit. Grit and balls. What did I tell you all before the game via Twitter? Joey Crawford is the only ref with the balls to take on LeBron Wade and Dwyane Wade. And Joey delivered with the 6th whistle on James. Now excuse [...]

Enemy Chatter: Does anyone in Miami understand basketball?

Playing in the first conference game of his career, Shane Battier recorded¬†his first postseason double-double. He had 10 points and 10 rebounds and shut out Brandon Bass [...]

Recap: 12 good minutes won’t cut it vs Miami

Fueled by a 35-point outburst in the 2nd quarter, the Celtics had us all believing at halftime that a Game 1 victory was possible. But faith quickly dissolved into disgust as the Celtics offense collapsed returned to form in the 2nd half. The end result: a 93-79 Heat victory. Rajon Rondo (16 points, 9 rebounds, [...]

Expert Predictions are Heated

Expert Predictions are Heated

The 2012 Eastern Conference Finals begin tonight in Miami and the Celtics might be just where they love to be: the underdogs.  During the New Big Three Era, they have been here before.  Many picked them to defeat the Hawks in 2008, while there were some detractors for the series against the Cavs, Pistons and [...]
