Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

The Celtics had just polished off the Sixers by dropping a beauty of a 4th quarter performance.  Rajon Rondo was fresh off a dominant quarter and the brilliant final :03 of the game.  And then TNT's David Aldridge caught him for this postgame interview. Boom.  Drop the mic. Leave the stage. This show is over. [...]

Recap: Celtics rip the hearts out of the Sixers

Recap: Celtics rip the hearts out of the Sixers

  I need a cigarette after the fourth quarter performance by the Boston Celtics.  I don't even know where to start.   Ok, I'll start with KG, the destroyer of men's souls.  29 points on 12-20 shooting, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks.  And if you thought Hawks Game 6 was a "turn back the clock [...]

Quick notes: Doc’s concerned, Pierce will play, Ray might not

Quick notes: Doc’s concerned, Pierce will play, Ray might not

The Celtics didn't practiced today, but they did gather for a shootaround.  I can't say I liked what I heard. Both Pierce and Allen sat out Friday's walkthrough, following a shootaround. Pressed as to whether Pierce or Allen were closer to being ready for Game 1, Rivers sounded an ominous tone.  "I don't [know]," he [...]

A quick appreciation of Kevin Garnett (and his complete Game 6 highlights)

A quick appreciation of Kevin Garnett (and his complete Game 6 highlights)

  I know I've said it before.  I've already admitted that writing Kevin Garnett off four months ago was stupid.  I guess after last night, I realized just how stupid it was.  Kevin Garnett is, was, and forever will be one of the most unique individuals on the planet.  His demeanor can be shocking, frightening, [...]

Ivan Johnson flips off the Celtics fans that Josh Smith loves

Ivan Johnson flips off the Celtics fans that Josh Smith loves

(image courtesy Austin Espinoza. h/t Ball Don't Lie) Ivan Johnson and Josh Smith have different opinions of Celtics fans. The photo shows Johnson is more of a non-verbal guy. Smith had this to say: “When you’re playing in an environment like the Boston Garden, they have probably the best fans,” Smith paused, and then thought [...]

Eye on the Enemy: Horford the game changer?

Eye on the Enemy: Horford the game changer?

The Celtics are trying to eliminate the Atlanta Hawks and move on to the Conference semis. We'll regularly check in on the competition to see how things stand. Al Horford changes the dynamics at both ends. You’ll notice that Boston, which prides itself on playing D, couldn’t stop Horford in the final 2 1/2 minutes [...]

Enemy Chatter: KG can get anything he wants

Enemy Chatter: KG can get anything he wants

I 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 Atlanta. Kevin Garnett scares me. Garnett's intensity, as scary and as disturbing as it is, isn't the scariest part. It's that it seems like he can get anything [...]
