Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo’s jumper looks better

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo’s jumper looks better

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Not only was he knocking down jumpers, but he was pulling up for them without any hesitation – something he did not do nearly enough of last [...]

Celtics bringing Sweetney back to camp again

Celtics bringing Sweetney back to camp again

SB Nation is reporting that Michael Sweetney, Jamal Sampson and Greg Stiemsma have been invited to Celtics training camp. This is the second go-round with Sweetney. He was a camp invitee back in 2009. I believe he spent the last few years playing in China. Sampson is a 6-11 big who has played for 5 [...]

What is the Celtics obsession with big fat guys?

What is the Celtics obsession with big fat guys?

Once upon a time, the Celtics flirted with bringing in Michael Sweetney… a gigantic individual who ate himself out of the league.  And there was Thomas Hamilton back in '95-'96, a guy so big he could have used his social security number as his jersey number.   And now there might be… Saskatchewan Roughriders Offensive Tackle Matt [...]

This next post is not the for the faint of heart

Twitter / Frank Isola: Eddy Curry, a league offic … via kwout I'm convinced this Knicks beat writer is just screwing with our heads.  I know the C's have had a thing for bringing in big, fat centers and giving 'em a look (Michael Sweetney anyone?) This is not happening.  It can't happen.   It [...]

It’s probably because of the all you can eat buffets

It’s probably because of the all you can eat buffets

Yahoo's Adrian Wojonarowski reports the Celtics were willing to try to keep Michael Sweetney around… stashing him in the D-League to get him into playing shape because they think he's got NBA talent. But it seems Sweets has other ideas… and he's close to signing a deal in China.  I bring this up for 2 [...]

Perk’s influences: KG… Eddy Curry… Kwame Brown. Wait, WHAT???

Perk’s influences:  KG… Eddy Curry… Kwame Brown. Wait, WHAT???

Celtics.com recently put up their conversation with Kendrick Perkins… and one of the first questions is "who were some of the guys who were big influences in getting you to the NBA?" His answer is absolutely priceless.  He drops KG's name immediately… which is understandable.  Then he drops this gem: "Believe it or not… Eddy [...]

Is the choice Sweetney or Hudson?

Is the choice Sweetney or Hudson?

Let's start with the Wojo tweet: As much as Mike Sweetney intrigues Celtics, appears "unlikely" organization will eat a guaranteed contract to keep him, sources tell Y! So that means Tony Allen is sticking around.  That means the choice seems to be between the two non-guaranteed deals:  Lester Hudson and Michael Sweetney. This is something [...]

Doc likes Sweets

Doc likes Sweets

Yeah… as in Michael Sweetney.  So tweets Adrian Wojnarowski. Doc Rivers sounds determined to keep Mike Sweetney. Celts plan had been to help him lose more weight and hope he could contribute by midyear And then he asks the obvious question. Boston doesn't have the roster space to keep him, and would need to get [...]

A case of love and hate

A case of love and hate

The alarm clock might as well be a sledgehammer at 6 am the morning after a Celtics/Red Sox/Patriots marathon day.  But I know I'm not alone.  A lot of us went from watching the C's (and then the last inning of the Red Sox season) to watching football the rest of the afternoon.  Including everyone [...]
