Enemy (Trade) Chatter: Jeff Green can hit big shots and make big plays

Enemy (Trade) Chatter: Jeff Green can hit big shots and make big plays

Most of that centered around Green and his starting power forward spot. There always appeared to just be something missing there. He was undersized, didn’t [...]

Danny gambled and lost, so now he’s going all in

It was a busy summer for Danny Ainge.  After working out deals for Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, he had to find their back-ups and fill the hole left by an injured Kendrick Perkins.  And he did a pretty good job of it too, constructing a roster that was deep just about everywhere except one: [...]

What can Jeff Green bring to the Celtics?

What can Jeff Green bring to the Celtics?

Whew. It still hasn’t all sunken in. I could go on a serious rant right now, but that’s not why I’m posting this. It’s an extremely sad day for me. I got to know Perk and his family a little bit, and they are dynamite folks. I wish them nothing but the best. And Marquis [...]

Taking a deep breath, and looking at the C’s moves realistically

Taking a deep breath, and looking at the C’s moves realistically

Ok, we're all freaking out because Kendrick Perkins is no longer a Celtic.  It's a jarring move that is hard to explain. Perkins has been a defensive monster and is a huge reason why the Celtics have been able to get past Orlando in the East.   But at a time like this, its easy to [...]

Better goofy webcam lip-sync: Shaq or OKC Thunder?

Shaquille O'Neal took to UStream this weekend to give us his best… ummm… rendition of Aaliyah's "Let Me Know.  What do you think?  Not a bad effort for the big man. Bonus points for the water show…. I guess. But is it better than what I think is the gold standard for goofy web-cam lip [...]

Enemy Chatter: Hearing KG go sour grapes is satisfying

Enemy Chatter: Hearing KG go sour grapes is satisfying

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 Oklahoma City. With Durant dropping 37 points in Boston, I can understand the confusion for Garnett, but it has nothing to do with the whistle. Garnett has a [...]

T-Mobile Recap: Jeff Green is clutch

T-Mobile Recap: Jeff Green is clutch

The Thunder beat the Celtics 109-104 thanks to two late three-pointers by Jeff Green. The referees also helped. OKC shot twice as many free throws as the Celtics (34-17).
