Working out some final details

Opening night is a couple of weeks away… and the starting unit is pretty much comfortable with each other.  Sure, there are some tweaks to the way things have been done in the past (like Kendrick Perkins getting some more touches), but overall… these guys don't need much more game time.  Meanwhile, there are still [...]

The Truth comes alive

The Truth comes alive

This preseason has been all about Kevin Garnett getting back in shape, Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels fitting in, and Kendrick Perkins showing signs of taking another step in his progression.

Slim Perk is more nimble

Slim Perk is more nimble

The Celtics stormed out of the gates last night and made it clear in the first 8 minutes of the game that they're going to be pretty good this year.  KG looked like his same old self, minus a little bit of his explosion.  Pierce and Ray made some familiar looking strong plays on offense. [...]
