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: 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

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 [...]

Rondo’s Crib

Rondo’s Crib

My favorite thing, besides the movie room that I desperately want… is the poker table that makes a brief appearance at 1:11 and 1:24.  Funny how Red Bull doesn't want to make that a stop on the tour.  Let me tell you this:  the stuff we all desperately want most to know about the guys [...]

Thank You Stephon Marbury

Thank You Stephon Marbury

I touched on this yesterday, but only because I knew I wanted to do more on it today.  Stephon Marbury saved the Celtics last night with an amazing 12 point burst in 6 minutes in the 4th.  The first basket was scored at 11:04.  The last point came on a free throw at 5:54, after [...]
