This is why he’s called “Larry Legend”

Our boy Jared Wade dropped this gem on Both Teams Played Hard last week.  Larry Bird scored 47 in this game, mostly left-handed.  Oh, and he also finished with a triple double, the game tying shot in regulation and the game winning shot in OT.  And I’m pretty sure he inspired this movie scene.   [...]

Happy 50th Magic

Happy 50th Magic

I respect Magic more than any other Celtics opponent.  Without him, the Lakers-Celtics rivalry wouldn't exist as we know it.  If I was starting an All-Time team… Magic would be the point guard. Happy 50th birthday, Magic. [...]

Flashback: A Player for the Ages

Flashback: A Player for the Ages

From Frank Deford's Sports Illustrated article back in 1988: Championships mean ever more to Bird—"His mission,' Auerbach calls them. "That's why I play," Bird says. "I'm just greedy on them things. Winning the championship—I've never felt that way any other time no matter how big some other game was. I remember the first time we [...]

Introducing… your “All-Celtics team”

Yeah, it's a little slow around here.  But that just gives us a chance to get creative.  And one thing that I know we always like debating is "All-Time" teams.  So I'm going throw out my "All-Celtics" team. PG:  Bob Cousy - The "Houdini of the Hardwood" set the stage for all future point guards.  [...]

The Pacers are reportedly dissatisfied with what the Celtics are offering – with the primary bait said to be guard Tony Allen and possibly Gabe Pruitt. As a result, according to a source close [...]

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]
