Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]

Want to go to an All Star game? Root for global warming

Want to go to an All Star game? Root for global warming

I think going to an All Star game could be fun.  It would be a great weekend of cool events throughout the city… and the chance to see all of the NBA's stars in one place would be great.  Unfortunately, if you want to actually GO… you're probably going to have to travel. Boston ain't [...]

Draft day is Ainge Day

Draft day is Ainge Day

The NBA draft is 18 days away, and the Celtics have what amounts to a throw-away pick at #58 overall (Minnesota has our #1 pick via the Garnett trade)… but don't expect Danny Ainge to do absolutely nothing.  As was noted in the Herald today, NBA Draft day is essentially Danny Ainge day.  Take a [...]

Doc’s Take, Antoine and More…

Doc’s Take, Antoine and More…

Bill Burt of the Eagle Tribune recently spent 30 minutes with Doc Rivers. Here's Doc on the bench: Q: The one thing the Celtics hit on last year was bench guys you brought in, including James Posey, P.J. Brown and Sam Cassell. Is it safe to assume that the Celtics have to do a better [...]

Second interview for Thibs?

Sactown Royalty has the scoop, via the Sacramento Bee. According to two sources with knowledge of the situation, neither [Kurt] Rambis nor his representative has negotiated potential terms of an offer.

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Holy crap did this ridiculous Ray Allen/Rajon Rondo trade rumor have legs.  I mean… we threw it up there as a "ha ha… you asked for rumors and this dumb one surfaced" type of thing.  But it just kept making the rounds.  People pulled quotes that appeared next to neanderthal cave paintings to use as [...]

Are the Celtics Really Shopping Rondo?

Are the Celtics Really Shopping Rondo?

Via HoopsWorld: Off the record, we have several sources telling us that Ray Allen is, indeed, on the block. It's easy to make the leap, as the Celtics have managed to develop some nice young talent around their Big Three while also managing to win a championship. They might have even repeated had Kevin Garnett [...]

Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker. Johnson: Larry Bird told me that Kobe Bryant is his favorite player. How [...]

KG Guarantees Titles in 2010, 2011

KG Guarantees Titles in 2010, 2011

Via the Globe: "I talked to [Garnett] and he guaranteed the championship in 2010 and in 2011," Grousbeck said. "He was as fired up as he's ever been." Not shocked that KG would spout off like that. What's interesting though, is that Wyc failed to mention the guarantees when his comments were first sent out [...]
