Enemy Chatter: The Celtics are a dirty, dirty team

Enemy Chatter: The Celtics are a dirty, dirty team

I 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 San Antonio. Let me quickly say this; the Celtics are a dirty, dirty team. If they were lab-born, the DNA used most likely would have been Chris Paul's and John [...]

Recap: Celtics shoulda, coulda but don’t beat the Spurs

Recap: Celtics shoulda, coulda but don’t beat the Spurs

That was one helluva frustrating loss. The Celtics scratched and clawed their way back from an early 17 point deficit, but lost when a Paul Pierce jumper rimmed out at the buzzer. Donny Marshall was annoyed that Pierce (15 points, 10 rebounds) didn't drive to the basket on the final possession. Despite being covered by [...]

KG deserves better than this

KG deserves better than this

From a piece I wrote on Crossover Chronicles about Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan: With each passing day, with each additional cancellation, fans that had recently been falling for the sport turn more apathetic.  And while hardcore fans will remain, the casual fans who would learn about the game, its history, and its best players, [...]

Celtics have “real fans” who’ll be more forgiving of a lockout

Celtics have “real fans” who’ll be more forgiving of a lockout

Hard feelings soften over time.  It's why you wonder why you ever broke up with that girl five years ago.  And the most loyal of NBA fans will, no matter how long the lockout goes, ultimately come back to basketball.  And of all the loyal fan-bases, the Celtics trail only San Antonio and Cleveland as [...]

Roosevelt field in New York to raise money for the Steve Nash foundation. Tony Parker, Brandon Jennings, Marcin [...]

Grumpy Gregg Popovich not impressed with Rondo’s toughness

Via the Boston Globe/San Antonio Express: “It’s really been hard to watch the playoffs and have them make Rondo out like Willis Reed,” Popovich said Thursday, in wide-ranging interview with the Express-News. “It’s like, Manu couldn’t even play the first game (against Memphis), and we probably shouldn’t have played him again. He went out there [...]
