Watch the Bill Simmons and Doc Rivers catfight on ESPN

Watch the Bill Simmons and Doc Rivers catfight on ESPN

I don’t say this often, but I’m with Bill Simmons. Doc Rivers has been disingenuous during this entire process and he deserves to be called out for it. While Doc unloaded the one jab, his son Jeremiah unloaded on Simmons via Twitter.  It’s a marvelous rant and worthy of your time. UPDATE: Doc Rivers elaborated [...]

Simmons: Celtics players did not like Jermaine O’Neal

Simmons: Celtics players did not like Jermaine O’Neal

Here's an interesting footnote from Bill Simmons new column on the rebirth of the Celtics: Jermaine finished his Celtics career as the team's least popular player, internally, since Vin Baker. The general feeling is, "He stole money from us." Just dumping O'Neal from the trainer's room so the players didn't have to disgustedly look at [...]

Your Morning Dump… Are the Celtics waiting to flip the switch?

Your Morning Dump… Are the Celtics waiting to flip the switch?

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. “They’ll be all right,” said Perkins. “I don’t think they’re caring about where they place in the seeding. I think they’ll get in the playoffs and do [...]

We read Bill Simmons, so you don’t have to

Bill Simmons shreds Danny Ainge is his latest column on Grantland. He claims Danny hasn't made a "good move" in 4 years (P.J. Brown). The column is written as the transcript of an anniversary party hosted by Glenn Ordway with several guests.  Here are some excerpts: Ordway: "Unfortunately, it's been slim pickings for Celtics fans ever since.

Looking Back with New Stats: 2008 Finals Game Four

Looking Back with New Stats: 2008 Finals Game Four

Without basketball to watch, I must resort to old game tapes to get my NBA fix.  Like most addicts, I can’t stay away.  I decided to start this new segment with the 2008 NBA Finals, my first NBA Finals as a Celtics fan (I was 1 when the 1986 banner went up). I picked game [...]

Rondo climbs Simmons’ Trade Value list

Rondo climbs Simmons’ Trade Value list

Rajon Rondo ranks 13th in Bill Simmons's annual list of players with the most trade value. He's right behind Russell Westbrook: Westbrook gets the edge only because he's still playing on his rookie contract ($9 million through next year). Meanwhile, Rondo may have replaced Gary Payton as the all-time Table Test guy: Has anyone in [...]

Bill Simmons destroys Rasheed Wallace

Bill Simmons destroys Rasheed Wallace

ESPN's Bill Simmons has one helluva column on the Celtics and Rasheed Wallace: Wallace is only a 35-year-old bench player on a pseudo-contender that will lose in Round 1 or 2 of the playoffs. But it's been a decidedly unhappy regular season for a 50-win team. Forget about Kevin Garnett's balky knee or Paul Pierce's [...]

What Bill Simmons Thinks About The Celtics

What Bill Simmons Thinks About The Celtics

While I'm always ripping Bill Simmons for writing ridiculously long columns with one too many movie references, I do read the guy's stuff when I can. He does amuse me and I respect his basketball opinion. In the Sport's Guy's basketball preview, he has the 62-win Celtics beating the Cavaliers in the Eastern conference finals, but losing to the San [...]

KG Needed Staples to Re-Attach Tendons??

KG Needed Staples to Re-Attach Tendons??

I just finished watching Comcast Sports Tonight and during the Celtics segment (they were talking about these comments by Ron Artest and the matchup problem he poses for Paul Pierce) Michael Felger referenced an old report about KG having staples in his knee. Say what? A quick Google search revealed this tweet from Bill Simmons [...]

The Week in Review

The Week in Review

We started the week with John trying to capitalize monetarily on Stephon Marbury's insanity. But that was kind compared to the butcher job Yahoo! Sports did on Steph. The Bruce Bowen to Boston rumors surfaced, as did the news that the Marquis Daniels sign-and-trade hit a snag. Growing a bit impatient with the Daniels situation, [...]
