76’ers pass on Thibs, hire Eddie Jordan

76’ers pass on Thibs, hire Eddie Jordan

Tom Thibodeau must be a horrible interview, because I think being the architect of a devastating defense that has vastly improved every team he's been with is qualification enough to get a shot at a head job. But the 76'ers were wowed, apparently, by Eddie Jordan.  Eddie checks in with a stellar, great, good, crappy [...]

Rajon Rondo’s Look-a-Way Trip?

Rajon Rondo’s Look-a-Way Trip?

From Peter Vecsey's column in the NY Post: Attempting to justify his role as a Bruce Lee, er, Bowen clone, Dahntay Jones is demonstrating to Karl that he is prepared to do whatever it takes to stay a starter. As best I can tell, Mr. Donuts is not giving the impression he's unhappy with his [...]

Top of my free agent list: Marcin Gortat

Top of my free agent list:  Marcin Gortat

Reassessing: JR Giddens & Bill Walker

Reassessing: JR Giddens & Bill Walker

Chuck's Take: Expectations were low for Celtics rookie class of 2008. Good thing, because we got very little in return. Bill Walker is loaded with talent and potential. He has a bigger upside than 1st round pick J.R. Giddens. Walker didn't see much court time until KG went down in February. When he did take [...]

Perk, Rondo pass on Team USA

Perk, Rondo pass on Team USA

A few days ago, Chuck expressed a little concern over Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis participating with Team USA.  So he, and we, will be happy to hear that our starting PG and center probably won't be expending any energy in 2010 and 2012… because they're going to skip this summer's mini-camp.    Several [...]

How the Celtics can beat the Lakers again

Getty Images Yes, the Celtics are out fishing right now.  But they could soon be joined by the Lakers… and they'd have a hand in making that happen.  That's because the Nuggets are trying to use the blueprint the Celtics created for beating the Lakers. “Boston was so much more physical than they were,” Billups [...]

Happy birthday, “Beat LA” chant

Happy birthday, “Beat LA” chant

Jess Camerato reminds us that 24 years ago tonight, the now famous "Beat LA" chant was born. On May 23, 1982 the Philadelphia 76ers were on the verge of eliminating the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Rather than cheer against the victors, the Garden crowd bellowed “Beat L.A.” as encouragement for [...]
