Larry Bird was too smart to get into the Cavs mess

Larry Bird was too smart to get into the Cavs mess

The Cavs' unsuccessful run at Michigan State's Tom Izzo — at the behest of Cavs owner and Michigan State alumnus Dan Gilbert — has been well-chronicled. At the same time, though, they also scoured the coaching map in search of players-turned-coaches of the highest stature to impress LeBron James, hoping that kind of hire could boost [...]

Once Upon a Time, Shaq Choked Jermaine O’Neal in a Game

Once Upon a Time, Shaq Choked Jermaine O’Neal in a Game

There are many instances where players who once scuffled a bit became teammates.  For the Celtics, a glaring example is when they traded for Kevin Garnett.  The previous season, KG and Kendrick Perkins were involved in a nice trash talking match during a double-overtime game at the Garden where the Celtics pulled out the victory [...]

Ariza, Posey involved in 4 team trade

Ariza, Posey involved in 4 team trade

The New Orleans Hornets acquired Trevor Ariza(notes) Wednesday in a four-team, five-player trade that also sends point guard Darren Collison(notes) to [...]

Lost wages and gained knowledge in the epicenter of the basketball universe

Lost wages and gained knowledge in the epicenter of the basketball universe

I'm back in Boston after a week in Vegas that spanned the end of Summer League, the beginning of USA Basketball's mini-camp, and the decimation of my bank account at the blackjack tables. Let's start with the most important lesson of the week.  When a dealer draws a 2, get ready to get your nuts [...]

T-Mobile Recap: Blowout

T-Mobile Recap: Blowout

A blowout win… over a bad team… at home. That's not something we see everyday by the Celtics. Fortunately, we got to see it tonight, 122-103 over the Pacers. So what was the big difference between tonight's victory and Wednesday night's debacle? Two reasons. 1-The Pacers are awful. 2-The Celtics played hard. The Celtics broke [...]

Enemy Chatter: “They have 3 All-Stars… we don’t have any.”

Enemy Chatter: “They have 3 All-Stars… we don’t have any.”

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Indiana.. Another blown lead. Another loss. Take from this one what you want. At least the team didn't get blown to smithereens in the confines of one of [...]

When 2 Quarters of Defense is Enough

When 2 Quarters of Defense is Enough

I'm not sure what Doc Rivers told the troops at halftime, but it clearly worked. Down 15 at the half, the Celtics clamped down defensively in the 3rd and 4th quarters and beat the Pacers, 103-94. Abysmal. Atrocious. Wretched. Putrid. Any of those words appropriately describe the Celtics play in the first half. Pacers PG [...]
