Marquis Daniels should rent, not buy

Marquis Daniels should rent, not buy

We don't know what Marquis Daniels is going to give us here in Boston this year.  But whatever he gives us… be sure to take notes… because it doesn't look like he'll be here for long.  At least, that's what Danny Ainge thinks.  “I think it’s rare. Your earning potential is a short career. But [...]

Just remember, most of us didn’t want this guy

Just remember, most of us didn’t want this guy

Just browsing through the interwebs and came across this huge Slam article on how Kevin Durant is poised to become the game's next megastar.  He might… he might not.  But one thing is for sure, this kid is damn good, and he's only just getting started.

Powe, Danny, talk about the split

Powe, Danny, talk about the split

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).

Wow, Danny… under a little stress?

Wow, Danny… under a little stress?

Celtics.com has this photo posted from today's news conference… and my honest-to-God first reaction to seeing it was… "who's the old guy at the end?" Holy crap, this summer has not been kind to Mr. Ainge.  I bring this up not to bust on a guy who's going grey (hello kettle?…. this is the pot…).  [...]
