What Bill Simmons Thinks About The Celtics

What Bill Simmons Thinks About The Celtics

While I'm always ripping Bill Simmons for writing ridiculously long columns with one too many movie references, I do read the guy's stuff when I can. He does amuse me and I respect his basketball opinion. In the Sport's Guy's basketball preview, he has the 62-win Celtics beating the Cavaliers in the Eastern conference finals, but losing to the San [...]

The case for, and against extending Rondo now

The case for, and against extending Rondo now

Last night, while doing the 8th Seed show, I said I was going to do a post imploring Danny Ainge to sign Rajon Rondo now.  And while my stance hasn't changed… I can see the logic for not doing the deal this week, and waiting until next summer. Extend him: We love Rondo.  I think [...]

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 [...]
