Dooling: Celtics “fell short to pure talent”

Dooling: Celtics “fell short to pure talent”

Keyon Dooling is still preaching, and the good reverend still believes in his (maybe former) squad, telling the Miami Herald.  “Our team was built to last,” Celtics guard Keyon Dooling says. “Experience, togetherness, will, drive. We peaked at the right time. We had the right group of guys together …” But? “We fell short to pure talent,” Dooling [...]

Everyone watched Game 1 of the Finals

Everyone watched Game 1 of the Finals

The Oklahoma City Thunder came back from a 13 point deficit and beat the Miami Heat in a thriller of a Game 1 that you had to stick around to watch.   And that turned into ratings gold, as it became the highest rated NBA Finals Game 1 in ABC’s history. The 105-94 win in Oklahoma [...]

Video: Celtics thank the fans

Video: Celtics thank the fans

The Celtics tweeted out this video a little while ago.  It’s a nice thank you to the fans.  Not gonna lie… I’m a little upset that I’m posting this today and not in a couple of weeks with some clips of the parade.  I’m suddenly not as ok with things as I was earlier today.  I [...]

Why Oklahoma City will win it all

Why Oklahoma City will win it all

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat might be the toughest NBA Finals to call in quite some time.  They are alternately very similar and quite different.  They each boast a 1-2 punch that can be both explosive and inconsistent.  But, as usual, this will be a series that comes down to match-ups, and I [...]

To the team I never wanted to love, but did

To the team I never wanted to love, but did

I’ve tried to write this piece, probably, 20 times by now.  I don’t know how to start it.  I don’t know how to properly capture what this team is or was.  What I do know is… when it was over, I loved these guys.  And I never really intended to. Here’s the season in a [...]

Video: Rajon Rondo… defiant to the bitter end

Video: Rajon Rondo… defiant to the bitter end

Some people might not like this, but I loved it.  After Doc Rivers had an emotional ending to his press conference, Rajon Rondo came in and was defiant and angry.  Make no mistake, he was just as emotional as Doc was, but it manifested itself in this icy death glare when he was asked if [...]

A pump up video… and my pre-game speech to the fans

  Ladies and Gentlemen,  We stand here tonight in our green and white gear… perhaps reading on a cell phone at a bar… on a tablet at some Starbucks, or on a computer at home… as a fan-base hoping for history.  We stand here tonight, as a diverse group of young and old… black and [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics stand in the way of Heaven

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics stand in the way of Heaven

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. There are certain favors you ask at great, great risk. Such as: Borrow large sums of money. Help move a piano. Take care of your dog that [...]

Fans chant “Let’s Go Celtics” for four straight minutes

Fans chant “Let’s Go Celtics” for four straight minutes

One thing to notice, the chant nearly tailed off a couple of times, but some group somewhere stepped up and kept it going. Very nice moment, Celtics fans.  Nicely done. [...]
