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. [...]

Doc Rivers: Master motivator

Doc Rivers: Master motivator

Doc Rivers has this way of gauging the temperature of the room, and saying just the right thing to get people’s attention. Remember back in April when we all watched the Celtics lose to the Bulls by 7 and we chalked it up to just another “not enough in the tank” game?  Doc came out [...]

LeBron took the shots the Celtics wanted him to take, he just made all of them

LeBron took the shots the Celtics wanted him to take, he just made all of them

LeBron James was out of this world good last night.  He hit every shot he took.  He was an unstoppable force.  But it's the TYPE of shots he hit that are leaving the Celtics a little more comfortable with his performance than one might think.  After the game, Doc said I wasn't really okay with [...]

LeBron James making excuses

LeBron James making excuses

Sometimes I read things LeBron says and I have a reaction and I think… I'd better go back and read this again just to make sure i'm not overreacting.  This was one of those times.  But no matter how much I read this, it still sounds a whole lot like excuses. "It's been challenging not just for [...]

Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

Welcome parties explain difference between Boston & Miami

CSNNE does a wonderful job getting us ready for tonight’s game with a nice, four-minute video contrasting the introductions of each newly constructed Celtics and Heat team.  It’s pretty much all you need to know about each team, and why one has found success while the other is… well… struggling with the whole thing right [...]

Video: Pierce’s dagger 3 in super slow-mo

Video: Pierce’s dagger 3 in super slow-mo

  As always with these, there are fun things to look for that aren't always visible in normal speed or even some of the replays.  My favorite?   It comes at the :26-28 stretch.  It's a guy in the stands between Pierce's shoulder and LeBron's shoulder.  After the shot goes in.  It's a double face palm.  [...]

Boston’s Mayor: “KJ” & “Hondo” critical to C’s recent success

Boston’s Mayor: “KJ” & “Hondo” critical to C’s recent success

  That there is good ol' Mayah of Boston, Thomas M. "Mumbles" Menino, talking about two of the keys to the Celtics' success…. "KJ" and "Hondo" Yup… I keep marveling at those Hondo to KJ alley oops.  Miami really has no answer for that. You know, some people might look at this as a facepalm [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo & KG is like Magic & Kareem

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo & KG is like Magic & Kareem

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. Q: One other thing going back to the history of the league and the history of it repeating itself, Kareem when he got Magic was invigorated.  That [...]

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

The Basketball Gods smite Miami with block-to-3-pointer comeuppance

This play was all kinds of amazing in a very short time:   The block by Wade on the Bass dunk attempt?  Nasty?  Rondo recognizing in the span of less than two seconds, that Mickael Pietrus is in the corner and then slapping it to him while getting fouled (how big was THAT no-call??) was [...]

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

The Celtics: A team that defies numbers

I had a private conversation last night with someone who was forced to admit something that we should all know isn’t true anyway. Numbers don’t mean everything. That’s not to say numbers, in this case the advanced stats movement that has swept NBA journalism, aren’t important.  They are.  They say a lot.  They tell us [...]
