The Celtics are continuing to bring last year’s band back together. First it was Kevin Garnett, and now it’s forward Brandon Bass. The C’s and Bass reached agreement on a three-year deal, according to several reports. Bass declined a player option for $4.25 million to return to the team, but had hoped to re-sign on [...]
Kevin Garnett is indeed not retiring, according to the Boston Herald…and according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, he’s not retiring for a long time. Garnett, 36, will sign a 3-year, $34 million deal to remain with Doc Rivers and the Celtics. Garnett had taken several weeks to contemplate retirement before ultimately choosing to [...]
Want those two minutes of your life back? Sorry about that.
This is part two of a three part series as Sports of Boston looks back at what was an incredible and challenging run with the Celtics’ New Big Three. Look for part three on Friday. Part One here.

We’re just one day removed from the Celtics’ loss in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Miami, but that hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from turning. According to the San Antonio Express-News, the Spurs are interested in pursuing Kevin Garnett, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. “The Spurs [...]
Nothing sums up the differences between the Heat and the Celtics than this video posted on CSNNE.com. This Miami Heat team has always been about flash and arrogance, as opposed to being able to get your hands dirty when you needed to in order to win the big game. The latter is exactly what the [...]
The Celtics already should be inspired to win Game 7 Saturday night in Miami after an awful Game 6 loss, an amazing show of support from the TD Garden faithful and the fact that this truly might be the final run Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce together. But, leave it to the NBA [...]
LeBron James had a historic effort in Game 6 against the Celtics, going for 45 points, 15 rebounds and 5 assists (Wilt Chamberlain is the only other player in NBA playoff history to do something like that). And he did it for…the Cleveland Cavaliers! Yay! Wait…
Say what you want about LeBron James, but he was absolutely outstanding against the Celtics in Game 6, finishing with 45 points on 19-of-26 shooting. Then, on his way off the court, a Celtics fan honored LeBron’s magnificent performance by pouring beer on his head. What’s your reaction?

After Wednesday’s crushing loss in Game 2, many wondered how the Celtics would be able to respond at home in Game 3. I mean, they played just about as well as they possibly could (Rajon Rondo had a legendary, historically significant effort), yet the team fell in overtime. But, the C’s were home in Game [...]
I haven’t written a column in a while, so I figured I would chime in on a bunch of sports topics floating around the airwaves, newspapers and Twittersphere the past month. So let’s start with the… Celtics • Unfortunately, this team has more experience and guts than talent and playmakers to truly go the distance. [...]
Tough defense and poor shooting on both sides kept the scoring low, but in the end, Boston turned things on to crush Philly’s hope late. As a result of an 85-75 victory, Boston moves on to face the Miami Heat in the Conference Finals, a series that will begin Monday at 8:30pm EST. Boston started [...]
Are Boston sports fans racist? Bigoted? Why are we asking this question again? Well, take a moment (that’s all it will take) to read Philly.com sportswriter John Mitchell’s 243-word (wow!) masterpiece of a “column” titled “KG: ‘fair-weathered’ beats bigoted any day.” West Philadelphia born and raised, as the writer so eloquently describes in his biography, Mitchell [...]
