Giving Pietrus some of the credit he deserves

Giving Pietrus some of the credit he deserves

Mickael Pietrus is a funny guy.   I don't just mean that in a "he makes everyone laugh" kind of way, although, he certainly does that.  I mean it in a polite, flummoxed way.  He has the ability to put the ball to the floor and drive, but he doesn't because he says he's been [...]

Rondo on the Heat: “they’re crying and complaining”

Rondo on the Heat: “they’re crying and complaining”

  That was subtle, huh?  First of all, I love any non-canned answer out of an athlete.  Secondly, I love that Rondo blatantly called the Heat out for crying to refs during games.  The sad thing is, it's not exclusive to the Heat. Hell, our guys do it too.   But still… Rondo has no [...]

Does the pick-and-pop game return for KG and the Celtics tonight?

Does the pick-and-pop game return for KG and the Celtics tonight?

Doc Rivers has been stressing the post game so much that I wouldn't be surprised if the team put a shock collar on him and set it to go off 5 feet from the rim.  And as you can see from one Jay's videos from the Greenlights earlier today, it really paid off. But the [...]

Doc’s best explanation of “disengaged” Rondo

Doc’s best explanation of “disengaged” Rondo

Without actually going back and counting, I'm going to guess that easily more than half of what has been discussed on this site this year has been Rajon Rondo and his penchant for, to use the popular term for it now, disengaging from the festivities on the court. Everyone gets pissed off about it.  Everyone [...]

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

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 [...]
