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 [...]

Can We Stop This ‘Trade for Nocioni’ Nonsense?

Can We Stop This ‘Trade for Nocioni’ Nonsense?

Our friends at NESN.com are the latest (Sactown Royalty and CelticsBlog) to jump on the Andres Nocioni-to-Boston trade bandwagon. For those unfamiliar with the 29-year old, 6-7, 220lb forward, Nocioni has averaged 11.9 ppg, 5.1 rpg for his career. According to DraftExpress, he's a physical player, a hustle guy who can shoot threes and score [...]

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 [...]

Perk: The most effective player so far

Perk: The most effective player so far

I must have said it a dozen times at the game Friday night:  "Perk is our most effective player on the floor."  In 20 minutes, he put up 14 points on 5 of 7 shooting and 7 rebounds.  He took advantage of smaller defenders, he powered past weaker ones, and didn't do it at the [...]

Slim Perk is more nimble

Slim Perk is more nimble

The Celtics stormed out of the gates last night and made it clear in the first 8 minutes of the game that they're going to be pretty good this year.  KG looked like his same old self, minus a little bit of his explosion.  Pierce and Ray made some familiar looking strong plays on offense. [...]

Danny admits to reading blogs… sort of

Danny admits to reading blogs… sort of

In a long, detailed interview (via Celtics Blog) in which Danny discusses things like KG's knee (there are no staples in there), his heart attack (he's feeling pretty good), and Rondo's attitude (the guys really like him)… we self-centered pricks here at the Red's Army office focused on this: "People were trying to read between [...]
