Your Morning Dump… Where the “‘Rondo for MVP’ Campaign has Begun”

Your Morning Dump…  Where the “‘Rondo for MVP’ Campaign has Begun”

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. “I’ve always looked at someone as the MVP as someone who makes his player not only better, but is able to dictate the game from different stat-wise, [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is sticking to his plan to manage minutes

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is sticking to his plan to manage minutes

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. Garnett is averaging 30.1 minutes per game through nine contests, his lowest average since coming back from knee surgery during the 2009-10 campaign (29.9 minutes per game). [...]

Jeff Green: Doc’s biggest challenge yet?

Jeff Green: Doc’s biggest challenge yet?

There is no Celtics player under a bigger spotlight than Jeff Green this year.  Or maybe it’s more accurate to say no Celtics player is under more spotlights this season than Jeff Green.  There are people watching to see how he returns from his heart surgery.  Others are looking to see if he lives up [...]

Doc’s not going to bail out his bench

Doc’s not going to bail out his bench

After a couple of days of everyone, including us, talking about how bad the Celtics look when Kevin Garnett leaves the floor, Doc told his bench today that there’s no bailing them out with a change to KG’s minutes. “No, no, I’m not going to let him do more. I’m going to play Kevin the [...]

Doc doesn’t want Rondo saving himself on the floor

Doc doesn’t want Rondo saving himself on the floor

Rajon Rondo has played a lot of minutes.  That’s probably because, as usual, there isn’t a reliable option behind him to run the Celtics offense. We knew going into this season that Rondo would play a lot of minutes.  But there have been way too many instances of Rondo slacking off.  The most egregious examples [...]

Austin’s already winning the Rivers vs. Rivers matchup

Austin’s already winning the Rivers vs. Rivers matchup

Doc’s a proud papa, and a great guy, but don’t be fooled by his smile and outgoing personality…  he’s a competitive S.O.B. So when the Celtics face the New Orleans Hornets in January, he’s not going to go easy on Austin just because that’s his son out there.  But he’s going to have a few [...]

Doc acknowledges Rondo needs to use his energy on offense

Doc acknowledges Rondo needs to use his energy on offense

When you’ve got the skill set of a guy like Rajon Rondo, it’s easy to get knocked for not using all of those skills all the time.    Often, people see these guys on the floor as NBA 2K characters rather than actual people who get tired.  Unfortunately, we can’t turn off fatigue in these [...]

More proof that Doc Rivers is simply a hell of a human being

More proof that Doc Rivers is simply a hell of a human being

Note:  This is a serious piece that does not concern basketball very much and deals with  mature subject matter.  If you’re not mature enough to handle it, you can go away now.  I implore you, though, to read my disclaimer at the bottom before making any comments on this piece.   Doc Rivers has always [...]

KG is the fireman that will put out the Heat

KG is the fireman that will put out the Heat

Came across this great picture this morning on Anta’s official Weibo page. The artist has drawn KG as a fireman, with “Beat Heat” in the background. Notice the Anta “KG3″ on his feet.  Absolutely fantastic.. We’re 6 hours away from tip-off and Doc Rivers tells Celtics.com that the Heat’s ring ceremony “is what it is.” [...]
