The KG/Rondo dynamic: clash and recover

The KG/Rondo dynamic: clash and recover

In many ways, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo are the same person, they just express themselves a little differently.  Think of them as cars with the same engine, but different bodies.  The thing about their personalities, though, is that they're always right… at least in their own minds.  And they're not going to believe they're [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the jungle was f—ing rocking

Your Morning Dump… Where the jungle was f—ing rocking

  Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. "The next game, game 4 is going to be even more. You gotta anticipate them making adjustments.  We're gonna make some adjustments.  But the tenacity, the [...]

Got an issue with the refs? Do something about it

Got an issue with the refs? Do something about it

We’ve all had problems in our lives. We either accept them, complain about them, which accomplishes nothing, or we hit them head on and resolve them. That’s the decision Celtics fans, for that matter all NBA fans, face when it comes to the quality of officiating in what’s marketed as the world’s greatest basketball league. [...]

Paul Pierce can’t get caught up in battling LeBron anymore

Paul Pierce can’t get caught up in battling LeBron anymore

  May 18, 2008. Five years ago.  Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals.  LeBron James was 23 years-old, a year removed from an embarrassing Finals sweep at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, and, at the time, believed to be on the cusp of leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to a championship.  Surely, people [...]

A few words about Rondo’s night

A few words about Rondo’s night

  I don't want to get into any "I told you so" disguised as flowery prose with Rajon Rondo.  I don't want to get into fights about his consistency or how he should play on any given night.  Right now I just want to appreciate for a minute the amazing performance by Rondo last night. [...]

Video: KG loses focus, C’s lose an opportunity

  With less than a minute to go in the OT, the Celtics had a shot to cut the Miami lead to 3 or even 2.  The Celtics drew up a play for Ray Allen. He inbounds, goes to the baseline and then circles back between 2 picks in hopes of getting a 3.  Looked [...]

What to do with Ray Allen

What to do with Ray Allen

Here we are again.  Ray Allen's ankle is a mess and the injury is permeating his entire game.  He can't cut, he can barely shoot, he's routinely beaten off the dribble.  It's bad. Yet…. There he was, valiantly doing other things to help the team as best he could.  He grabbed 5 rebounds (2 offensive) [...]

Enemy Chatter: Does anyone in Miami understand basketball?

Enemy Chatter: Does anyone in Miami understand basketball?

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here’s a dose of ‘enemy chatter’ from Miami. Playing in the first conference game of his career, Shane Battier recorded his first postseason double-double. He had 10 points and 10 rebounds and shut out Brandon Bass [...]

Video:  LeBron laughing in KG’s face, plus KG’s response

There are certain things you just don’t do.  And laughing in KG’s face is one of them. Maybe LeBron feels like he can get away with it.  The Celtics obviously need KG, so he can’t do anything there that could get him tossed or suspended.  The referees were obviously quick with the technical fouls last [...]
