That time Kobe Bryant almost became a Celtic

That time Kobe Bryant almost became a Celtic

Luck was no longer on the side of the Boston Celtics in 1996.

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s time to beat L.A.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The 1985-86 Celtics certainly fit that description, winning 67 games in the regular season and going 15-3 in the playoffs (the first round was best-of-five back [...]

Videos of the Day: Thomas & Crowder get loose

The Celtics kept the win train a rollin’ last night with a 100-91 victory over the Knicks at TD Garden. Despite the nine point difference, this one wasn’t as close as the final score may indicate. Boston was in control for most of the contest, and despite a couple of runs by New York, the C’s [...]

I called Kelly Olynyk “borderline untouchable”… and here’s why

Aside from a stretch of play that caused me to launch into a frustrated podcast rant, Kelly Olynyk has had a pretty good month of December. We were treated to more great play last night, despite him being limited by foul trouble. Last night, while lauding his play on Twitter, I took it a step further [...]

Recap: Celtics hold off Pistons in Detroit

Despite some sketchy (to put it nicely) officiating in the final minute & change, the Celtics got a 99-93 win over the Pistons in Detroit tonight. Three Reggie Jackson foul shots, the result of a bad call with 1:08 left, enabled Detroit to cut what was once a 16 point fourth quarter Boston lead to 92-85 [...]
