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. […]

So, Who is J.R. Giddens Anyway?

During the 2007 NBA Draft, Danny Ainge began his magical offseason and before the night was done, the Celtics had acquired Ray Allen and Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis for Jeff Green, Delonte West, and Wally Szczerbiak. That, as everyone now knows, led to the acquisition of Kevin Garnett and the eventual NBA Champion rolling rally […]

Celtics Pass With Flying Colors in 2007-2008

Celtics: Season in Review

It is really funny to look back at what I predicted way back on October 5, 2007 for the then-upcoming NBA season. To recap one of the greatest seasons in Celtics history, I find it necessary to turn back to that initial preview and find out how bad I was at my guesses. Don’t worry, […]

Ainge Named NBA’s Top Executive

(Update: More analysis of this Celtics story and others to come in Four-Point Play Column after Game 5) Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge was named the league’s Executive of the Year on Wednesday. OK, we knew that was pretty obvious. The real surprise? Not winning the award in a sweep. He beat out Los […]
