What about Jamaal Tinsley?

What about Jamaal Tinsley?

One thing that came up early in last nights edition of "The Two Man Game" was the Pacers release of Jamaal Tinsley.  We were discussing it with Tom from IndyCornrows, who said that once he got past his frustration with how the Tinsley situation went… it could be a good fit. The FanHouse write up [...]

Tracy McGrady’s noble gesture

Tracy McGrady’s noble gesture

You'll notice something different about Tracy McGrady this season.  He's switching his jersey number from #1 to #3.  And he's got a pretty good reason for the switch. McGrady wore No. 3 in high school. He is making the switch to promote his humanitarian efforts in the Darfur region of the Sudan and a documentary [...]

Does the Artest deal help the C’s?

Does the Artest deal help the C’s?

Interesting theory explained on The CMSB.  Here's one of the 4 reasons: How bad does Sheed look if he signs with another team for more money? Currently it sounds like the Spurs, Mavs, and Magic are in play (hat tip to Gary Tanguay's Twitter page). If he signs with San Antonio, it looks alright. If [...]

C’s to Powe: “‘Good luck with another team”

C’s to Powe:  “‘Good luck with another team”

I still say that when it comes to pure business… not offering Powe a qualifying offer was the right move.  But man… it's getting really hard to defend anything besides that.  Today… Leon gave his side of the story to the Herald: “Of course I was disappointed, because I want to come back,” Powe said [...]

The sad reality about the Leon Powe decision

The sad reality about the Leon Powe decision

I hate that Leon Powe was not offered a contract.  Hate it.  But I get it. Had the Celtics offered, and Powe accepted, the qualifying offer from the Celtics… they would have been on the hook for about $1.6 million dollars when you combine the contract and luxury tax.  It's just too much to pay [...]

Baby gets offer, Powe doesn’t, & Sheed news

Baby gets offer, Powe doesn’t, & Sheed news

Scott Souza has the scoop. While the Celtics did retain the right to match any contract offer to Glen Davis through the qualifying offer, Ainge said the injury status of Leon Powe – who had reconstructive left knee surgery after tearing his ACL in the playoff series vs. the Bulls – was a determining factor [...]

Draft day is Ainge Day

Draft day is Ainge Day

The NBA draft is 18 days away, and the Celtics have what amounts to a throw-away pick at #58 overall (Minnesota has our #1 pick via the Garnett trade)… but don't expect Danny Ainge to do absolutely nothing.  As was noted in the Herald today, NBA Draft day is essentially Danny Ainge day.  Take a [...]

Top of my free agent list: Marcin Gortat

Top of my free agent list:  Marcin Gortat

It's time to be real here.  Kevin Garnett has a lot of miles on his legs.  He's not fragile, but after a while, things start to break down.  And we're getting to a point where a stiff breeze can hurt Kendrick Perkins' shoulder.  We need a solid big man who can come in, bang, rebound [...]

Offseason Questions: Leon Powe

Offseason Questions: Leon Powe

I think my love for Leon has been made clear here since day 1.  I’ve said a million times that I think he should be a Celtic forever.  But that’s the bleed-green die-hard emotional fan talking.  And the NBA is a business.  So we need to look at Leon Powe. Leon, like Glen Davis, is [...]

I Love Leon

I Love Leon

How can you not?  The latest reason comes from Jess Camerato's piece on Leon, in which he says he's gonna try to save everybody. “I’ve seen a lot of kids growing up in and out of foster care, in and out of group homes, in and out of jail, and I’ve got a lot of [...]
