Your Morning Dump… What James Young has in common with my 5-year-old

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.

Recap:  C’s find shooting touch against Knicks

If you’re like me and you are a… ahem… “seasoned” Celtics fan you remember the old days when the Celtics would play a game a year out at the old Hartford Civic Center.  The way the Celtics shot against the Knicks, though, they might want to go back to playing in Hartford more often.  The [...]

Missiles Marcus: Fire at will

Missiles Marcus: Fire at will

After watching just an open practice scrimmage and one preseason game, one thing can be determined about Marcus Thornton: he will shoot.  With or without notice, with or without a defender guarding him, he will launch.  Last night it felt like there were two of him out there, even the JumboTron operator was fooled.  Ball [...]
