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 […]

Kevin Garnett Out 2-3 Weeks

Kevin Garnett suffered a posterior muscle strain of the right knee during Thursday’s 90-85 loss to the Jazz. Danny Ainge told the Globe that the injury will keep Garnett out of action for 2-3 weeks. “Rest and ice for KG,” Ainge told the Globe. According to the Globe, the Celtics may pick up recently-released center […]

Danny Ainge Shopping for Guards

Two stories came out Monday showing that Danny Ainge thinks the Celtics need one more scoring guard off the bench. First, Knicks guard Stephon Marbury, the self-proclaimed best point guard in the NBA, revelead that he has a “verbal agreement” with the Celtics. Second, Reggie Miller (yes, the 43-year-old Reggie Miller)revealed on the Dan Patrick […]

Top of the World – A Book Review

“Anything is Possible.” The three words uttered/screamed by Kevin Garnett as he stood at center court after the Celtics won their 17th NBA title. Boston Celtics fans had been waiting 22 years for another Larry O’Brien trophy to make it’s way to Causeway Street and finally the new “big 3″ made it happen. We all […]

Celtics One Step Ahead of Pistons

On Monday, the Pistons traded Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheikh Samb to the Nuggets for star guard Allen Iverson. At first look, it appears the Pistons have pushed in all their chips and mortgaged thier immediate future for success this season. But, beneath the surface, it appears GM Joe Dumars has outsmarted us all…that […]

Celtics Waive Darius Miles

Several news outlets are reporting the Celtics have waived Darius Miles. After missing two seasons due to a knee injury, Miles seemed like a long shot to make the roster. Though he did play some decent minutes for the Celts in the preseason, he just doesn’t seem to be in basketball shape. Celts GM Danny […]

Celtics GM Review: Danny Ainge

There was a lot of speculation as to whether Danny Ainge would have his job much longer as the general manager of the Celtics after the terrible results of the 06-07 season. Nothing had seemed to be going right at all in Ainge’s career as GM. None of the draft picks or players acquired in […]

Doc Gets Ring, Then Gets Paid

Yahoo! Sports is reporting that the Celtics and head coach Doc Rivers have agreed on an extension that will keep the coach with the team through the 2010-2011 season. Rivers, who made $5 million during his championship season, is set to make $5.5 million per year with incentives totaling up to $7 million annually. It […]

Celtics Player Review: Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett is the most intense player I have seen on the Celtics in my lifetime. KG (or the “The Big Ticket”) was one of the major pieces to this Championship winning team. Garnett was a powerhouse the whole season. From the moment the Celtics finalized the deal to bring him to Boston to the […]

House and Tony Allen to Stay With Celtics

According to Danny Ainge, the Celtics have reached two year agreements with both Tony Allen and Eddie House. Ainge would not be specific on the financial figures, but according to a source, both are being paid in the mid-$2 million range. For Eddie House, the money is roughly half the mid-level exception of $5.585 million. […]
