An ode to the nothingness of this final week

An ode to the nothingness of this final week

Like a man crawling through the desert begging for water… I am a blogger crawling through the internet begging for a new story line.  I'm parched.  And my dehydration has led to a wild delirium which has manifested itself thusly. A new day dawns, with stretches and yawns, and yearning for the Green. From bed [...]

“Beastondo” Ready to Lead

“Beastondo” Ready to Lead

You ready for the regular season? I'm ready for the regular season. I think most of the Celtics are ready too. Except for Rajon Rondo. “No, we ain’t ready,” Rondo said. “We’ve got a long ways to go.” “We’ve got to execute better, close out quarters and keep our turnovers down,” Rondo said, drawing support [...]

Rajon Rondo’s awesomeness extends beyond the court

Rajon Rondo’s awesomeness extends beyond the court

That's Rajon Rondo making a trip to Germany to visit wounded soldiers (h/t CelticsBlog).  He's awesome.  As usual, I'll point your attention to the mitts…which, when he shakes someone's hand, wrap around the recipient's hand about 4 or 5 times like an octopus tentacle.  Other things that will distract you from your workday. I explain [...]

Rondo’s D May Be Less Frustrating This Year

Rondo’s D May Be Less Frustrating This Year

Apparently tired of hearing me scream at the television, Rajon Rondo is ready to stay in front of his man this season. Rondo tells Julian Benbow of the Globe that he would purposely let his man by him so he could attempt a back-tip a handful of times each game. Playing defense is more than [...]

Return of My Favorite Play

Return of My Favorite Play

Here's a highlight from the first quarter: Kevin Garnett with the spin, catch and dunk off the feed from Rajon Rondo. Damn, it's nice to see these two completing this play again. Yes, that's my kid squealing in the background. The Celtics rolled over Toronto 106-90. Garnett finished with 16 points (8-13 FG), 6 rebounds [...]

The Truth Might Not Pick Up That $21 Million Option

The Truth Might Not Pick Up That $21 Million Option

According to Gary Tanguay, Paul Pierce says he's willing to NOT pick up his $21 million option for next season and sign a salary-cap friendly extension. Will a contract in the range of 3-years, $45 million be enough to satisfy Pierce? Is it possible the team won't want Pierce around for 3 more years? At [...]

“I want to see if I can bring them back”

“I want to see if I can bring them back”

I heard some guys on the radio comparing Alex Rodriguez’s numbers to Reggie Jackson’s.  One guy is a post-season choker, the other is “Mr. October.”  The numbers:  They were almost identical.  Which just went to highlight one thing that defines clutch in sports. It’s not how many stat lines you can fill out.  It’s WHEN [...]

Give Rondo’s jumper time

Give Rondo’s jumper time

I'm already starting to see and hear grumblings about Rajon Rondo's jumper.  In 3 preseason games, not only hasn't it fallen with any regularity.  It really hasn't fallen at all.  So people are already starting up with the Rajon Rondo still can't shoot types of comments.  Maybe some of that is our (as in the [...]
