Can Antoine Walker Make it Back to the NBA?

After spending the last two years out of the NBA, devastating financial issues related to gambling and other debt have prompted former Celtic Antoine Walker to attempt a comeback to the NBA. Back in 2002, I remember watching a playoff game between the Celtics and the 76ers, back when Walker was the unquestioned leader and […]

For Tony Allen Three is the Magic Number

Tony Allen is taking his talents to southwestern Tennessee. There was no gaudy, made-for-TV special (probably would have been broadcast on ESPN 8: The Ocho live from his garage) but having agreed to a three-year deal with the Memphis Grizzlies worth just over $3 million per year, Allen is leaving the only NBA home he […]

Rondo’s Stellar Play May Force Cavs to Pick Their Poison in Game 5

Celtic’s point guard Rajon Rondo recorded 29 points, 18 rebounds, and 13 assists in the Game 4 victory over Cleveland on Sunday, proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is the second-best player in this series behind LeBron James. However, it was King James who took a backseat on Sunday, something he hasn’t […]

Did Ainge and Savard Make Boston Look Dirty?

For anyone hoping to garnish some good will in a sports nation that has all but fallen in love with hating us, you can forget it. Between Marc Savard “biting” Dan Carcillo during a post-whistle scuffle in Game 2 of the Bruins-Flyers series, and Danny Ainge tossing a towel in the air to distract Cleveland […]

The Aughts: The Greatest Sports Decade That Almost Never Happened

On the warm Sunday afternoon of October 11, just before 4 p.m., shortstop Erick Aybar settled under Dustin Pedroia’s pop up, ending the 2009 ALDS in front of a deflated crowd at Fenway Park. The inning was officially scored: 0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors, 0 LOB. Angels 7, Red Sox 6. Just like that, […]

Not Extending Ray Allen a Smart Move

Entering his 15th season in the NBA, there isn’t a lot Ray Allen hasn’t experienced. He’s been traded three times, called three different time zones home, and has been a part of two different “Big Threes.” NBA All Star games? He’s been to nine of them, winning the 3-point contest in 2001. Olympic Gold? Check. […]

Glen Davis Likely to be Suspended

A broken thumb might not be the only problem for Glen Davis. According to several reports, the Celtics power forward will likely be suspended by the team following an off-court altercation that resulted in his thumb injury. Team owner Wyc Grousbeck told the Fox 25 Morning show that a suspension was “very likely.” The Boston […]

The Case for Shopping Rajon Rondo

Let’s jump in the DeLorean, fire up the Flux Capacitor, and take a trip back in time. Sorry, ancient Rome will have to wait. I’m more interested in conducting a social experiment in the recent past. It’s May of this year, and I’ve brought with me two sports stories from the future. The experiment is […]

Is Rajon Rondo an All-Star in 2009-2010?

Let’s just get this out of the way. There is no player on the Celtics with more upside than Rajon Rondo. We saw flashes of brilliance in the playoffs as he nearly averaged a triple double in 14 games. However, since the Celtics got eliminated from the playoffs, a lot of drama has surrounded Rondo. […]

Grant Hill in the Celtics Mix?

Thus far in the NBA off-season we have seen the elite teams adding pieces in preparation for a title run. The Lakers went out and signed Ron Artest, the Magic traded for Vince Carter, the Cavaliers added Shaq, and the Pistons signed former Bulls SG Ben Gordon. In the midst of all these transactions, Celtics […]

Will Rondo Remain a Celtic?

The Celtics won a Championship a year ago–it was glorious. The Big Three, Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo were the starters and right now the Celtics have the same team. So why is there so much trade talk? The only logical explanation is a concern for the future. If the Celtics were to keep the […]

Rondo, Allen to Detroit?

The NBA Draft may be just two days away but the rumor mill is afire with trade talk, most notably a trade involving the 2008 World Champion Boston Celtics. Over the past few weeks we’ve heard Rajon Rondo’s name floated around with Phoenix as a possible destination. The newest rumor circulating from a ‘low level […]

Danny Ainge Suffers Heart Attack

According to WCVB-TV’s website, Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, 50, has suffered a heart attack. Ainge did not attend Wednesday night’s season finale against the Wizards because he wasn’t feeling well. He woke up Thursday morning with chest pains and was taken to the hospital, where doctors discovered an artery that was 100% clogged. He’ll […]

Celtics End Season on High Note, Beat Wizards

The Celtics finished another great season with a win against the Washington Wizards, 115-107. The Big Three did not play and regular starters Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins each saw less than 15 minutes of action. As a result, the Celtics went with a creative starting five with Rajon Rondo, Stephon Marbury, Kendrick Perkins, Tony Allen, and Leon […]

Celtics Sign Mikki Moore, Target Marbury

The Celtics are in the process of rounding out their roster for the playoff run, and moved in that direction Tuesday with the signing of Mikki Moore. Moore, a 7’0″ forward/center, will help give the Celts some serious muscle. Then, late Tuesday night, the Celtics began to zero in on disgruntled guard Stephon Marbury. The […]
