The Red Claws are getting crowded

The Red Claws are getting crowded

I'm still not sure how this multiple-team affiliation for a D-League team really works, but that's the system right now.  And while we look at the Maine Red Claws as the Celtics' farm team, they've actually been affiliated with the Charlotte Bobcats, too.   And now, they'll be affiliated with the Philadelphia 76'ers too.   [...]

GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays (#30 Seed vs #35 Seed)

There is just about a week left until the NBA lockout starts and the dark period for NBA fans begins.  Not since Michael Jordan's iconic jumper in Utah ended the 1998 season have fans had to endure a time of NBA-less days.  Paul Pierce was drafted that June and is about to go through it again.  Today's matchup features a couple [...]

GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays (#28 Seed vs #37 Seed)

Tonight is the NBA Draft and what better way to celebrate than to feature the Celtics best draft pick since Paul Pierce in 1998.  Ok so Danny Ainge didn’t technically draft Rajon Rondo in 2006, but he more or less did.  Essentially he instructed Phoenix to draft him, then trade him to the C’s, which [...]

GreenLight Madness: Celtics Top 64 Plays (#27 Seed vs #38 Seed)

Today's madness matchup takes a little break from loud jams and fast breaks and focuses on a couple pretty passing plays.  Throughout the New Big Three Era, one of the understated aspects of this team (and how at times conjures up memories of the Original Big Three) is their unselfishness and their passing.  Sometimes it's [...]

As the Dallas Mavericks evened up the NBA Finals with an exhilarating Game 4 win last night, LeBron James was a 4th quarter no-show.  The Madness tournament is not a no-show today as we continue along with the matchups.  Rajon Rondo's bold play against Carmelo Anthony along with Jeff Green's return to the tournament are [...]

Enemy Chatter: Sixers/Celtics playoff series could get ugly

Enemy Chatter: Sixers/Celtics playoff series could get ugly

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. If the Sixers are matched up with the Celtics in the first round, it may end ugly.  The help defense from the 7-6 last night was lackluster.  I understand [...]

Recap: Cs put second half squeeze on Philly

Recap: Cs put second half squeeze on Philly

Warning: This is a mail-in blog job. I just couldn't get into this game. Think Celtics vs Bobcats from a few weeks ago. Not sure how much credit to give the Celtics defense, but Philadelphia's offense was brutal in the second half. They managed just 32 points. Every time I looked up (from my intense [...]
