Jermaine O’Neal forgets the internet exists, recycles ridiculous excuses

Jermaine O’Neal forgets the internet exists, recycles ridiculous excuses

Jermaine O’Neal is still trying to play basketball.  And despite what we saw in Boston over the past couple of years, he swears he can still be productive. Ok.  Fine.  I’m not going to get on any player who still wants to play the game for a living.  It’s a beautiful game… the locker room [...]

Simmons: Celtics players did not like Jermaine O’Neal

Simmons: Celtics players did not like Jermaine O’Neal

Here's an interesting footnote from Bill Simmons new column on the rebirth of the Celtics: Jermaine finished his Celtics career as the team's least popular player, internally, since Vin Baker. The general feeling is, "He stole money from us." Just dumping O'Neal from the trainer's room so the players didn't have to disgustedly look at [...]

Taking Stock: Celtics – Jazz

Taking Stock: Celtics – Jazz

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Ho Hum, another double-digit assist night.  And as a bonus, 9 of his assists led to makes at the rim.  Very often, Rajon is assisting on long jumpers.  It's nice to see a more uptempo game [...]

Taking Stock:  Celtics – Bobcats

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  This has become his typical game now.  Single-digit points and big assists.  13 assists is awesome, and the 1-7 shooting is misleading because he was forced to take a few shots as the shot clock wound [...]

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo: Rondo gave a ton of effort for all but the last few minutes of the first half… and then none but the last few minutes of the second half.  Maybe he was trying to expend as little [...]

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo: Nice, steady game out of Rondo.  10 points, 14 assists, 3 steals, 3 turnovers.  He got to the rim (4-5 in shots at the rim) and distributed the ball nicely.   Paul Pierce:  After the game, Pierce [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Jermaine says he never asked for a buyout

Your Morning Dump… Where Jermaine says he never asked for a buyout

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. "That's something that needs to be cleared up," he said. "I never asked Danny. I never spoke to Danny – quote me on this – about a buyout. [...]

Taking Stock:  Celtics – Hawks

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  He shot 4-14.  All four of those shots were lay ups, making him 0-7 from 3 feet and out.  He did have 13 assists and 6 steals.  And that alley oop fake to KG/pass to Ray [...]
