Happy 57th birthday to Larry Legend

Happy 57th birthday to Larry Legend

My god… Larry Bird’s passing skills are simply ridiculous. Whenever one of those silly “who is better” debates pops up comparing Bird to a modern day player (i.e. Kobe, Melo, Dirk, etc), just cue up those clips of Larry’s passing. Happy birthday to one of the baddest mo-fos to every lace’em up. [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Jordan Crawford is making clutch baskets

Your Morning Dump… Where Jordan Crawford is making clutch baskets

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. But it wasn’t just the amount of points he scored; the timing of them was even more important. After leading by as many as 27 points in [...]

Recap: C’s ride blistering start to win over Denver

Recap: C’s ride blistering start to win over Denver

The Celtics broke out of the gates tonight like an Olympic sprinter on steroids.  They decimated the Nuggets with a 14-0 run to start the game and a 39-15 lead after the first quarter.  They needed a good chunk of that 24 point lead because Denver outscored them 83-67 the rest of the way.  Too [...]

Red’s Army presents Fan Friday #47: “NBA Slander”

Red’s Army presents Fan Friday #47: “NBA Slander”

The subject of our latest “Fan Friday” is one of my favorite Twitter accounts- @NBASlander. This self professed trash talker and “troll slayer” holds nothing back. We’ll keep his true identity a secret-it’s all part of the mystique. And not to mention because there are probably a few folks that would like to “have a [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Bass gets credit for leading the defense

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. Sullinger has some credit to pass around for the Celts’ improvements on the defensive end. “I think you’ve got to put a big chunk of that on Brandon (Bass) [...]

Gang Green 7.6: “The Gang is confused by the winning”

Gang Green 7.6: “The Gang is confused by the winning”

The Celtics are currently first place in the Atlantic Division, which puts them in the fourth seed.  Regardless of whether this holds or not, no one ever expected this to be a fact at any point during the season.  In fact, the season has deviated so far from our expectations, the Gang is thoroughly confused [...]

Danny Ainge throws wet blanket on Rajon Rondo return speculation

So much for the speculation that Rajon Rondo is nearing a return to the court. MassLive’s Jay King transcribed Danny Ainge’s morning interview on Toucher and Rich: “I don’t think he’s close, meaning I don’t think it’s going to happen for the next few weeks,” Ainge said during an appearance on Toucher & Rich. “We’re not [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the rebounding is improving, repeat, the rebounding is improving

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. Through the first 11 games of the season, Boston owned a league-worst defensive rebound percentage of 70.4 percent. At that point, Boston was about to embark on [...]
