An ode to the nothingness of this final week

An ode to the nothingness of this final week

Like a man crawling through the desert begging for water… I am a blogger crawling through the internet begging for a new story line.  I'm parched.  And my dehydration has led to a wild delirium which has manifested itself thusly. A new day dawns, with stretches and yawns, and yearning for the Green. From bed [...]

“Beastondo” Ready to Lead

“Beastondo” Ready to Lead

You ready for the regular season? I'm ready for the regular season. I think most of the Celtics are ready too. Except for Rajon Rondo. “No, we ain’t ready,” Rondo said. “We’ve got a long ways to go.” “We’ve got to execute better, close out quarters and keep our turnovers down,” Rondo said, drawing support [...]

Perk Takes a Shot at Chris Bosh

Perk Takes a Shot at Chris Bosh

Via CelticsBlog: He started off the game, got aggressive. He got calls early. I think… as the game went on the refs started letting us play physical, you know they’re a finesse team. They’re not a physical team. You can’t be somebody you’re not. So I think the refs just started letting us play a [...]

The Truth comes alive

The Truth comes alive

This preseason has been all about Kevin Garnett getting back in shape, Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels fitting in, and Kendrick Perkins showing signs of taking another step in his progression. Today, it became about Paul Pierce reminding everyone he he's still the man. Pierce went off for 25 points in 29 minutes.  He was [...]

Perk: The most effective player so far

Perk: The most effective player so far

I must have said it a dozen times at the game Friday night:  "Perk is our most effective player on the floor."  In 20 minutes, he put up 14 points on 5 of 7 shooting and 7 rebounds.  He took advantage of smaller defenders, he powered past weaker ones, and didn't do it at the [...]

Slim Perk is more nimble

Slim Perk is more nimble

The Celtics stormed out of the gates last night and made it clear in the first 8 minutes of the game that they're going to be pretty good this year.  KG looked like his same old self, minus a little bit of his explosion.  Pierce and Ray made some familiar looking strong plays on offense. [...]

Bynum moved to the bench

Bynum moved to the bench

A couple of years ago, all we heard was how the Finals would have been different if Andrew Bynum was playing. This year, with all the Lakers "faithful" praying to whatever evil pagan deity it is they've sold their souls to for a rematch, they'll have to find a new excuse when they get destroyed… [...]

Celtics letting Perk score a little

Celtics letting Perk score a little

The Celtics are throwing a few wrinkles into their out-of-bounds play selections… including an option for Perk.  instead of passing to a cutting teammate or someone on the perimeter, Perkins took two dribbles and dunked, the last thing second unit opponents expected. "That was almost a fun section of practice," coach Doc Rivers said. "We [...]

Wow, Perk really did slim down

Wow, Perk really did slim down

He looks really skinny in this picture.  You could see in the training camp broadcast (for the short time he was on) that he's moving around well… especially laterally.  That could be a big help in preventing some fouls. By the way… how about Sheed playing in sweatpants with the pockets inside out and the [...]
