Announcing the Red’s Army ULTIMATE 1-on-1 tournament

 A few weeks ago, we noticed Dime Magazine doing a league-wide 1-on-1 tourney where fans voted on the winners.  We thought it was a fantastic idea, so we… uhhhh… borrowed it.  Except we're putting our own little twist on it.  We went back through the annals of Celtics history and put together the ultimate 1-on-1 [...]

Great, now I have to buy this video game too

Great, now I have to buy this video game too

I've bought the last two versions of NBA 2K and I was thinking I might skip a year… until I saw this on Dime Magazine. Now I have to buy it (unless someone at 2K sports wants to send me one for free… you know… to test it out).  Oh, MJ and Magic are on [...]

F*** a lockout… It’s Celtics night on NBA TV!

F*** a lockout… It’s Celtics night on NBA TV!

For one night, we can put all this lockout talk behind us and escape through the wormhole known as NBA TV.  You see, that lockout is preventing NBA TV from showing any players from the past couple of decades.  And you know what, that's fine with me, because Celtics history is rich enough (and at [...]

In a city of champions, the Celtics deserve more respect

The Bruins won their first Stanley Cup since 1972 last week, and in the process gave the city of Boston its seventh championship of the 2000's.  They also completed the City-of-Champions-Grand-Slam by giving Boston an unprecedented title in all four major pro sports over just seven years.  Boston is, right now, title town.  Teenagers in [...]

Sorry, ’96 Bulls… The ’86 Celtics were better

Sorry, ’96 Bulls… The ’86 Celtics were better

The Sporting News just came out with its 10 greatest NBA teams of all time.  And, of course, it lists the 1996 Chicago Bulls team at #1. I could go into how the league was terribly watered down at that point, having expanded three times in seven years… adding six teams over that span… including [...]
