Rondo Passes Pierce for Fourth on Celtics’ All-Time Assists List

Sure, Rajon Rondo may be a point guard, and Paul Pierce a small forward, but it was still somewhat startling to learn on tonight’s broadcast that Rondo had already surpassed the longtime Celtics captain on the franchise’s all-time assists list. Rondo’s first assist of the game broke a tie with Pierce and moved him into […]

Celtics, Nets to Play Experimental 44 Minute Game in NBA Preseason

There’s a Neil Young song called “My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)” and another titled “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black).” This is what this experimental 44 minute preseason game between the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets feels like: an NBA decree completely out of the blue as the Celtics venture […]

Celtics Should Continue Patient Approach to Rebuilding Process

The Boston Celtics will officially lose out on the services of superstar power forward Kevin Love on August 23. Once the calendar turns to that date, the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to send the first overall pick of the 2014 Draft, Andrew Wiggins, along with a few other assets to Minnesota in exchange for Love. Before […]

Former Celtic Paul Pierce Signs With…the Wizards?

If Celtics fans weren’t used to seeing Paul Pierce in a Nets jersey last season, this year isn’t going to get any easier. In the latest domino to fall since LeBron James decided to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, the former Celtic Pierce has decided to join the Washington Wizards, according to an ESPN report. […]

Ever since last October 30, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs have been on a collision course to meet in the 2014 NBA Finals. The Heat and Spurs are once again the last two teams standing, and will clash in the Finals for the second consecutive season. It is the first time that the […]

NBA Playoffs Second Round Predictions

One of the most exciting NBA playoff first rounds in recent memory finally came to an end last night. The NBA had its own March Madness, as there were five consecutive win or go home games over the weekend. Despite all the craziness surrounding the first round, there were only three series where the lower […]

Saltalamacchia Pens Thank You to Red Sox Fans

When I learned that Jarrod Saltalamacchia wouldn’t be coming back to the Boston Red Sox, I can’t say I was heartbroken. Sure, Salty had put together a career year, hitting .273/.338/.466 with 14 home runs, 40 doubles, and 65 RBIs. But you could dig your way to China using the holes in his swing, and […]

Miscellaneous Thoughts on Celtics-Heat

Normally, I would consider the Boston Celtics taking on the Miami Heat a must-see game. But Danny Ainge traded away Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and any semblance of an actual rivalry, and I decided to actually live my life instead of being held hostage by Kelly Olynyk, Kris Humphries, and the rest of the Celtics’ […]

Ray Allen Turns Back on Celtics, Wins Ring with Heat

Ray Allen just won his second ring, and it was not in as Celtic uniform. Last summer Allen was given the choice between a bigger contract that came with a starting role in Boston vs heading to South Beach to play with LeBron James and a chance at a ring. This past week it was […]

Spurs on the Brink: What now, Pop?

On the brink of winning their fifth NBA title in the Tim Duncan era, the San Antonio Spurs did not only cough up their best shot of taking down the defending champions in Miami, they may have already lost Game 7 too. Up five with just under 30 seconds left in regulation, the Spurs trotted […]

Can The Spurs Beat the Heat?

Okay, once again the Heat are the overwhelming favorite to win the NBA Championship. This sucks. I’m making myself sick right now just thinking of LeBron lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy and handing it off to Ray Allen and Battier and the Birdman and all the rest of those despicable Miamians. Now that the Heat […]

“Shut the F— Up”: Riley, Ainge Exchange Pleasantries over LeBron’s Officiating Complaints

On Wednesday, the Chicago Bulls ended the Miami Heat’s franchise-record winning streak at 27 games with a 101-97 win, a game in which LeBron James recorded 32 points, 7 rebounds and 4 blocks. James, however, was not about to graciously accept the end of the second-longest win streak in NBA history, instead choosing to go […]

Green’s Monster Game Not Enough For Celtics as Heat Extend Win Streak

It was deja vu for the Boston Celtics. In the 2007-08 season, the Celtics beat a Houston Rockets team on March 18 to end their 22-game win streak. Monday, the Celtics could not capitalize on a career-high 43 points from Jeff Green as the Miami Heat stretched their streak to 23 in a 105-103 victory. […]

Celtics Need to Play for Rest Rather Than Playoff Seeding

After winning three straight games, the Boston Celtics have just 23 games left before the playoffs are upon them. The Celtics still have a lot to prove on the road before the seeding is completed after the 82-game season. The Celtics stand just two games below the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and that […]
