Breaking down Rondo’s insane assist numbers

Breaking down Rondo’s insane assist numbers

  Let me start by stating the obvious:  Rajon Rondo is off to a blistering start with the assists.  His 15.1 assists per game is far outpacing Deron Williams (2nd, 10.2), Chris Paul (3rd, 10.1) and Jason Kidd (4th 10.0).   So I figured I'd take a little bit of a closer look at the [...]

Where did The Beast go?

Where did The Beast go?

Remember when we had a valid argument for Kendrick Perkins to be an All Star? Perk stormed out, like the Celtics did, to a strong start.  November through January, Perk was averaging 11.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, and a hair under 2 blocks.  In February and so far in March, he's averaging 7.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, [...]

KG, Pierce on “All Decade Team”

KG, Pierce on “All Decade Team”

I always expect Pierce to be overlooked in lists like this.  But he wasn't. Ian Thomsen has put together a nice little list. His starting 5:  Nash, Kobe, LeBron, Duncan and Shaq.  Hard to argue with that for an All Decade team. KG is a reserve… Though Garnett was the 2004 league MVP with Minnesota, [...]

No shot has been sweeter than Sugar Ray’s

No shot has been sweeter than Sugar Ray’s

Sometimes you need to step away from watching the game as a Celtics fan.  Sometimes you need to just sit… watch… and soak in someone doing something better than just about anyone else ever has.  That's how I feel about Ray Allen's jump shot.  And I'm not alone.  SLAM is calling Ray the best shooter [...]
