Can the Celtics really be the 3 seed this year?

Can the Celtics really be the 3 seed this year?

We’ve heard a lot of predictions for this team so far. Many of them have the team finishing in the 40-something win range, but I’ve yet to see even the most optimistic of Celtics fans come close to what the folks at Nylon Calculus came up with.  Last year my predictions, using a blend of [...]

Scenes from an open practice

Scenes from an open practice

The Celtics held their annual open practice for season ticket holders last night. They ran through some drills, had a scrimmage, and addressed the crowd like they always do.

The night Larry Bird peaked

The night Larry Bird peaked

Bill Simmons and Bob Ryan both look at June 8, 1986 as the night Larry Bird peaked. Hell, even Larry admits it. The Celtics cruised to victory in Game 6 in the NBA Finals against the Houston Rockets.

Kevin Garnett should do media day forever

Kevin Garnett should do media day forever

Kevin Garnett in front of a microphone is one of life’s great pleasures. The man is a quote machine, especially if he’s in a good mood. The KG/Paul Pierce “Super Man theme music” remains a classic, and there were few post-win interviews that didn’t include some sort of humorous KG moment. Now, at 39 years [...]
