What minutes will Glen Davis really get?

What minutes will Glen Davis really get?

The reaction to Glen Davis signing has generally been pretty good.  I like it too.  But a few of you noticed that Glen Davis didn't exactly sound psyched to rejoin the Celtics.  That's probably because he was hoping to cash in and be a starter… instead of sitting on the bench and fighting for minutes. [...]

C’s paying Baby to stay thin?

C’s paying Baby to stay thin?

Just found this buried in the middle of Dime Magazine write up about Dwyane Wade buying a place in Chicago. Big Baby Davis‘ new contract with the Celtics includes some weight-based incentives that could be worth as much as $500,000 per season. If that’s not enough motivation to stay below 4X shorts, nothing will work [...]

There Isn’t Room For Leon

There Isn’t Room For Leon

I love his game, his toughness, his tenacity and his story, but (despite the latest reports) there just isn't room on the Celtics for Leon Powe. Prior to the start of last season, we knew Danny was going to have a difficult time re-signing both Glen Davis and Powe. Both are undersized players who can [...]

Leon Looking for Revenge? Bring It

Leon Looking for Revenge? Bring It

ESPN.com is reporting that the Cavs and Leon Powe have reached agreement on a two-year deal. I'm guessing Leon's surgically repaired left knee passed extensive testing. Leon will likely sign a two-year, $1.77 million deal on Wednesday. According to Chris Sheridan, Leon wants to make the Celtics pay: Los Angeles, Portland, Dallas, Orlando and Miami [...]

Great Debate:  Which 10 to add to the “50 Greatest” list

The Hoop Doctors has a great debate going on right now on the site.  Since the NBA… at least as a brand name (explanation on the site)… turns 60 this year, which 10 players should be added to the "50 Greatest Players" list. Here's the original list.  Now… you CAN'T pull anyone off the list.  [...]

Behind the scenes at the C’s Dancer finals

Since I'm pillaging ComcastSports Net's website for content… might as well go for the good stuff.  You know… like when you raided your parents liquor cabinet.  Sure, you could get whatever was up front… but why not go for the bottle of Glen Grant in the back, right? So with that, I present to you [...]

Danny & Baby discuss their new looks

Danny & Baby discuss their new looks

One thing we noticed yesterday was Danny Ainge’s new stressed out distinguished grey look.  I was so distracted by that, that I didn’t notice how much thinner Glen Davis looked (although many of you mentioned it in the comments). Gary Tanguay noticed that stuff too… because he talked to Danny and Baby about their new [...]

Is this REALLY Ray Allen’s last season in Boston?

Is this REALLY Ray Allen’s last season in Boston?

It all started with the almost immediate trade rumors involving Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo.  And it has continued through the offseason as people start to evaluate all the moves and put early previews of the season together.  It's the notion that once Ray Allen's contract ends, so will his tenure in Boston. But will [...]
