You wanted rumors: Rondo, Ray to Phoenix

You wanted rumors:  Rondo, Ray to Phoenix

We were asked earlier today if we had heard any rumors or anything about potential moves the Celtics will make.  Well, we just got a pretty wild one.  Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo for Amare Stoudemire, Leandro Barbosa, and the 14th overall pick. That comes to us via 17Banners.com… which says Phoenix radio station KTAR [...]

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

Tony Battie is better than Ray Allen

I actually love lists like this. It's from the Wages of Wins Journal… and it's a ranking of EVERY Celtic since 1977… according to wins produced with the Celtics (via CelticsBlog).  Wins produced (explained here) is clearly not the be-all end-all statistic on which to rank players.  It can produce some weird results.  But it [...]

Rajon Rondo’s Look-a-Way Trip?

Rajon Rondo’s Look-a-Way Trip?

From Peter Vecsey's column in the NY Post: Attempting to justify his role as a Bruce Lee, er, Bowen clone, Dahntay Jones is demonstrating to Karl that he is prepared to do whatever it takes to stay a starter. As best I can tell, Mr. Donuts is not giving the impression he's unhappy with his [...]

Perk, Rondo pass on Team USA

Perk, Rondo pass on Team USA

A few days ago, Chuck expressed a little concern over Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis participating with Team USA.  So he, and we, will be happy to hear that our starting PG and center probably won't be expending any energy in 2010 and 2012… because they're going to skip this summer's mini-camp.    Several [...]

Offseason Questions: Gabe Pruitt

Offseason Questions:  Gabe Pruitt

The Celtics have turned to Sam Cassell and Stephon Marbury to back up Rajon Rondo during the Big 3 era.  Meanwile, Gabe Pruitt has pretty much just hung out on the bench.  He did have a stretch through January and February where he got some playing time… and his best game of the season was [...]

Offseason Questions: Rajon Rondo

Offseason Questions: Rajon Rondo

One thing has been made clear on this site for quite some time: We love Rajon Rondo.  We've been saying for quite some time that he belongs in the same sentence with the other elite point guards in the league.  He's in the process of getting the keys to the team from the Big 3… [...]

The Ray Allen conundrum

The Ray Allen conundrum

Getty Images I was going to save this for later in the offseason, but it came up on the comments yesterday, so we might as well continue this discussion now. The Boston Celtics have an interesting decision to make with Ray Allen.  The can either Trade him and his huge expiring contract mid-season. Let him [...]

Offseason Questions: Stephon Marbury

Offseason Questions:  Stephon Marbury

I really wasn't prepared to be asking these questions right now… but… here we are. There are a lot of questions for the Celtics to answer this offseason.  As Chuck alluded to last night, the Celtics are in a precarious financial position.  They've got all their money tied up in the Big 3, and that [...]

They Had Nothing Left

They Had Nothing Left

The Celtics have been driving with the gas light on for a long time (like Kramer in that Seinfeld episode).  And last night, they just ran out of gas.  Paul Pierce said so. “We still had our chances. I thought going into the fourth quarter, I think we were down five or six, and we’ve [...]

“I guess we just choked”

“I guess we just choked”

Getty Images I feel hungover, but I didn't drink last night.  I'm trying to look at game 6 and figure out why we couldn't seal the deal.  But after 6 games of similarly inconsistent play, I'm at a loss for anything new to say.  So I'll just let Rondo sum it up for me. “We [...]
