We’re not trusting each other. We’re going to win games, still, but we’re not going to win against good teams. It’s just not going to [...]

The Ugliest Thing You’ll See All Day

The Ugliest Thing You’ll See All Day

That's Rajon Rondo's free throw percentage. Twenty-five freakin' percent. How can a guy shooting nearly 59% from the field shoot less than half that from the stripe? If that number does not improve, teams will go into Hack-a-Rondo mode the minute he gets into the paint. After the jump, pictures of Megan Fox in some [...]

I’ve never felt worse about a 14 point win…

I’ve never felt worse about a 14 point win…

Yes, the Celtics beat the Warriors 109-95. But for 2 1/2 quarters, we had to watch another crap effort from this team. Not only is Golden State bad, but they're also severely undermanned. Enough about the negative… (for now) The Celts broke this one open midway through the 3rd. Tied at 55, the green went [...]

I’m lovin’ Rondo’s new move

I’m lovin’ Rondo’s new move

Rajon Rondo has unveiled a new move this season: the quick change of direction.  It's a simple move, but it's so nasty.  He busted it out twice against the Jazz. Very simply… he slows down and makes it look like he's going to take the ball out and set the play and then BAM…. he [...]

Lay Up

Lay Up

Amazing what a couple of days off can do, huh?  The Celtics picked apart the Jazz tonight with an attack that would make a boxer proud.  They softened up the body by coming out aggressive and picking the Utah Jazz defense apart with lay up after lay up.  And once they dropped their defense to [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo has to bring it every night

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.  Because there's nothing quite as satisfying a good morning dump. “This year it’s every night,” Rondo said yesterday of how frequently he faces opponents in his own mold. “Last year it was a lot, too, but now it’s [...]
