It's not just me, they were recently voted worst sports fans in America by GQ.   Celtics fans are now getting up close with Philly's worst. Last night, a ginormous man attempt to distract Kevin Garnett by lifting his shirt. In Game 1, an older Sixers [...]

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

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 Philadelphia. Really disappointed that nobody put Rondo or Pierce on the ground when they were out there throwing behind the back passes and taking 24 footers when the [...]

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Can a sprained MCL heal in 48 hours? An uber-aggressive and healthy looking Paul Pierce dropped 24 points and 12 rebounds in Philadelphia as the Celtics dominated Game 3, 107-91. Kevin Garnett continued his dominance: 27 points, 13 rebounds in 30 minutes. Philly has no one who can guard this man consistently.  Rajon Rondo (23 [...]

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Getty Images 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 Philadelphia. And finally, Lavoy Allen. I clearly timed my post yesterday around this breakout performance.

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Remember everything positive we said about the Celtics following the Game 1 victory? I guess it applies to Philadelphia now. The 76ers made the smart, clutch plays down the stretch to beat the Celtics 82-81 in Game 2. Spare me the bitching about the illegal screen whistle on Kevin Garnett with :10 remaining. While I'm [...]

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Not sure what was the more spectacular play. KG blocking the high-flying Andre Iguodala from behind or Keyon Dooling finishing on the break.
