Just remember, the problem is with KG’s shin

The Celtics return to action tonight in their first preseason game of the year.  And EVERYONE is going to be watching Kevin Garnett out there.  Just remember when you're watching… if he's limping, it's because he's got shin splints and some mysterious calf problem now. “He’s been good, (but yesterday) I thought they bothered him [...]

Danny admits to reading blogs… sort of

Danny admits to reading blogs… sort of

In a long, detailed interview (via Celtics Blog) in which Danny discusses things like KG's knee (there are no staples in there), his heart attack (he's feeling pretty good), and Rondo's attitude (the guys really like him)… we self-centered pricks here at the Red's Army office focused on this: "People were trying to read between [...]

“I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic”

“I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic”

Doc Rivers was on WEEI earlier this morning…and the thing that seems to be resonating with people is what he said about Rajon Rondo. I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic. I really do. I think this process he’s gone through is the process all players go through at times. The maturity process [...]

KG second best player this decade

KG second best player this decade

According to Ball Don't Lie… KG falls behind only Tim Duncan on the list of greatest players this decade. KG takes the cake over Kobe by a hair due to his defense, an area that isn't always accurately documented by statistics. His stats, though, are pretty awesome. Garnett averaged over 20 points, 10 rebounds, and [...]

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc won’t limit starters’ minutes

Doc Rivers is an NBA coach… a former coach of the year and an NBA champion. I'm a slob who sometimes drinks alone, could stand to lose a few pounds, and uses terms like "we" and "us" when referring to his favorite pro teams. So I get why Doc Rivers doesn't want to listen to [...]

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 [...]

“Kevin Garnett pisses intensity”

“Kevin Garnett pisses intensity”

That's just one part of the Ball Don't Lie Celtics preview. There are other, funnier photos.  There also actual basketball analysis. I found this interesting. Depth? Not great. Wallace helps, a ton. Marquis Daniels can really play, I have misgivings about his ability as a reserve point man, but he can help this team if [...]

“You’re on borrowed time”

“You’re on borrowed time”

That's Ray Allen's approach to appreciating whatever moments he's got left in the NBA… and tuning out talk of the contract extension he wants. “It’s interesting how I approach training camp as an older man in relation to my career,” Allen said. “I think Kevin (Garnett) takes the same mindset and Paul (Pierce) has the [...]

KG sets the record straight about his knee

KG sets the record straight about his knee

I don't know how you can get any clearer. "I don't have any knee problems. I don't have any knee problems. I'm not trying to get in depth with my injury and all that but the things are bothering me are secondary and not even primary. So I'm excited about that because it's nothing be [...]

Doc’s starting this crap early

Doc’s starting this crap early

Camp is not even a full week old and Doc Rivers is already forgetting to limit KG's minutes. "Today was a day I probably should have taken him out more." That would explain the video we just saw of KG moving around stiffly.  Doc said he was starting and stopping the guys a lot and [...]
