Josh Smith on the block?

Josh Smith on the block?

The Atlanta Hawks are a young, athletic, exciting team.  But they don't seem to be on a championship path.  So now they're apparently starting to think of pieces they can trade… in an effort to bring in some more stable players that might be able to help them move forward.  One of those players:  Josh [...]

Draft day is Ainge Day

Draft day is Ainge Day

The NBA draft is 18 days away, and the Celtics have what amounts to a throw-away pick at #58 overall (Minnesota has our #1 pick via the Garnett trade)… but don't expect Danny Ainge to do absolutely nothing.  As was noted in the Herald today, NBA Draft day is essentially Danny Ainge day.  Take a [...]

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Rondo in China, not on trading block

Holy crap did this ridiculous Ray Allen/Rajon Rondo trade rumor have legs.  I mean… we threw it up there as a "ha ha… you asked for rumors and this dumb one surfaced" type of thing.  But it just kept making the rounds.  People pulled quotes that appeared next to neanderthal cave paintings to use as [...]

Are the Celtics Really Shopping Rondo?

Are the Celtics Really Shopping Rondo?

Via HoopsWorld: Off the record, we have several sources telling us that Ray Allen is, indeed, on the block. It's easy to make the leap, as the Celtics have managed to develop some nice young talent around their Big Three while also managing to win a championship. They might have even repeated had Kevin Garnett [...]

Our first trade rumor of the season was a pretty goofy one, but it sure sparked a reaction.  One reaction is from Bethlehem Shoals on the Sporting News… who says we should blame the Trade Machine for all these silly rumors. The real story is that apparently, we've all become such Trade Machine junkies, and [...]

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 [...]

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… [...]
