Celtics may be better of without Perk?

Celtics may be better of without Perk?

While we are lamenting the loss of Kendrick Perkins in Game 7, ESPN.com's John Hollinger says there's a silver lining to Perkins knee injury: However, if Boston's bigs can avoid the whistles early, we're unlikely to find ourselves discussing Perkins' absence as much of a factor. As important as he's been to Boston's suffocating defense [...]

Is there a need for extra motivation?

Is there a need for extra motivation?

While John had some fun with Big Baby's inspirational words, I wanted to take a more serious look at motivational tactics. I know the argument against motivation – "If these guys can't get up for a Game 7 in the Finals, then something is wrong with them." But coaching is more than Xs and Os. [...]

Big Baby serves up some inspiration

(NSFW language in clip) "We went through too many ups and downs to lose like this," Davis said. "Out of all the teams in the league we were the one that struggled. We were the one that went through the bumps and bruises. We went through the, 'we're old.' We went through the 'oh, they [...]

Enemy Chatter: Game 7 for all the tacos

Enemy Chatter: Game 7 for all the tacos

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Los Angeles. Game Seven, for all the tacos, is Thursday night…. The Lake Show gave the Celtics absolutely no quarter tonight. They exerted tight ball pressure on everyone [...]

Elbowing people in the jaw is now apparently legal

Elbowing people in the jaw is now apparently legal

I'm not asking for much here, I don't think.  All I want is when a guy puts an elbow up and it connects with a guy's jaw… that a whistle be blown.  Just a thought. [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where it doesn’t look good for Perk

Your Morning Dump… Where it doesn’t look good for Perk

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. Kendrick Perkins has sprained MCL and PCL ligaments, and source close to him says "looks like he's out," for Game 7. MRI on Wednesday. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnorowski [...]

A waste of time

A waste of time

Despite needing just one more win to capture Banner 18, the Celtics came out of the gate like a team full of 40-year-old men playing a pick-up game on a Sunday afternoon. Missed dunks. Missed lay-ups. Errant passes. Balls dribbled off knees and feet. No box-outs. You name it, and the Celtics did it poorly. [...]

Tonight’s the night

Tonight’s the night

If the Celtics are going to win this thing, they're going to have to do something improbable.  Hell… it's damn near impossible.  Or so it seems. They are either going to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in three straight games… or they'll beat Kobe, at home, in a Game 7. The Lakers have only lost [...]

Legler: Kobe doesn’t trust teammates

Legler: Kobe doesn’t trust teammates

(My favorite) ESPN analyst Tim Legler had this to say about Kobe: “I think for Kobe Bryant, the problem right now is as the game goes on and the Celtics make a run in the second half, Kobe trusts his teammates less and less and less. And that’s a big problem for the Lakers,” Legler [...]
