How the Celtics got Paul Pierce

How the Celtics got Paul Pierce

The Sporting News' Baseline blog passes along an interview in which Larry Brown explains why the 76'ers passed on Paul Pierce. Basically, they made a promise to Larry Hughes… whom they selected with the #8 pick.  Since the Bucks had worked out a trade with Dallas… that left Paul Pierce just hanging out there at [...]

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe the Lakers winning is a good thing

Maybe I'm romanticizing the past a little bit.  But to me, basketball was at its absolute peak in the 80's.  The play was great.  There were so many great players and good teams.  We had classic individual performances (71 points by David Robinson), classic All Star weekend performances (Bird's "who's finishing 2nd three-point contest win, [...]

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

I actually love lists like this. It's from the Wages of Wins Journal… and it's a ranking of EVERY Celtic since 1977… according to wins produced with the Celtics (via CelticsBlog).  Wins produced (explained here) is clearly not the be-all end-all statistic on which to rank players.  It can produce some weird results.  But it [...]

Offseason Questions: Rajon Rondo

Offseason Questions: Rajon Rondo

One thing has been made clear on this site for quite some time: We love Rajon Rondo.  We've been saying for quite some time that he belongs in the same sentence with the other elite point guards in the league.  He's in the process of getting the keys to the team from the Big 3… [...]

They Had Nothing Left

They Had Nothing Left

The Celtics have been driving with the gas light on for a long time (like Kramer in that Seinfeld episode).  And last night, they just ran out of gas.  Paul Pierce said so. “We still had our chances. I thought going into the fourth quarter, I think we were down five or six, and we’ve [...]

Hungry dogs defending their last scrap of food

Hungry dogs defending their last scrap of food

It's become very clear that the Celtics simply don't have enough left to win a championship (although I will still find some way to explain how they could if they win game 7).  They are too hurt… too run down… too reliant on guys who should be getting 15-20 minutes per game, rather than 35-40.  [...]

Getty Images So that's how Orlando felt after Game 5. The Celtics scored a whopping 29 second half points.  Their last points of the game were scored by Rajon Rondo at the 3:46 mark.  Orlando erased a 10 point Celtics lead halfway through the 3rd quarter to force a game 7 Sunday night.  Box Score [...]

3 @ 2 Thursday, May 14, 2009 7:00 pm ET Amway Arena (Orlando, FL) The fourth quarter of Game 5 was gut-check time, and the Celtics answered the call.
