Fighting fatigue becomes latest teachable moment for young Celtics

Fighting fatigue becomes latest teachable moment for young Celtics

Kelly Olynyk paused when he was asked if he recalled the last time he played four games in four days.  He gazed towards the ceiling as he flipped through his memories.  And then he shrugged and said “I don’t know.” In their latest “Welcome to the NBA” moment, this contingent of wanna-be Celtics struggled through [...]

1-on-1 with coach Brad Stevens

1-on-1 with coach Brad Stevens

I had a quick opportunity to catch up with new Celtics head coach 1-on-1.  He’s a busy guy, but he was nice enough to carve out 5 minutes to talk to me about a few things like his first exposure to the NBA game as head coach, Rajon Rondo, Kelly Olynyk, and the one play [...]

TMZ catches Paul Pierce buying a lot of bottled water

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames. How the hell did TMZ know Paul Pierce was at this supermarket in LA? They must have been stalking other celebrities and stumbled into Pierce. Anyway… The Truth claims he’ll play another 10 years and win a championship next year. Sigh. (h/t MassLive) [...]

Colton Iverson seems to enjoy dishing punishment

“Fair to say you like contact?” Yeah, definitely. How do you feel after games?  Are you sore or anything? No.  I feel great.  I could go play again right now if I wanted to. That exchange between reporters and Colton Iverson after the Celtics’ win over the Pacers at the Orlando Summer Pro League pretty [...]

The college-to-NBA adjustment isn’t just an on-court thing

The college-to-NBA adjustment isn’t just an on-court thing

You’ve heard the story by now.  Six months ago, Kelly Olynyk, Colton Iverson, and Phil Pressey were walking college campuses and playing against a lot of guys whose basketball careers ended before final exams.  Now, they’re wearing “Boston” on their chests, and starting to play against bigger, faster, stronger competition. It’s an adjustment.  One that [...]

The Legend of Kelly Olynyk grows in Orlando

The Legend of Kelly Olynyk grows in Orlando

It’s been said that from Kelly Olynyk’s flowing, golden locks comes an aura that can heal the sick. Actually, I’m the only one who said that, but what’s another wildly ridiculous overreaction to the “O’Klynyk” he’s been putting on here in Orlando.  And while we’re all having fun with the hyperbole while watching Olynyk’s play against [...]
