Video: CSNNE Shows Stark Difference Between Heat, Celtics Big 3′s

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 […]

Powe, Tony Allen Return To Help Grizzlies Top Celtics

Entering Wednesday night’s contest, the Bulls held a half game lead over the Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Celts, therefore, needed a win to tie things up, but either way, the last 12 games of the season should be really interesting. Paul Pierce did all he could for the good […]

Leon Powe Waived By Cavs: Could He Return To Celtics?

In the flurry of moves Thursday, the Cavaliers cut ties with veteran forward Leon Powe. Yes, the same Leon Powe that won a ring with the Celtics in 2008. Now that the Celtics have three open roster spots (or two if you count the 10-day contract given to Chris Johnson) after making three trades, the […]

Leon Powe: 2008-2009 Celtics Review

We recently just pretty much said our goodbyes to Leon Powe after the Celtics opted not give him a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent. It’s not definite yet if he will be back next season or not, but based on the way the Celtics management is talking, it does not seem likely. However, let’s look back at Powe’s 2008-09 […]

Save Leon Powe Petition is a Little Ridiculous

The Celtics have decided to part ways with forward/center Leon Powe after not offering him a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent. General manager Danny Ainge does not necessarily want to sign Powe since he will most likely not be ready to play until mid-December. They have not completely ruled out re-signing him […]

Leon Powe Not Returning to the Celtics

Wednesday, the Boston Herald reported that Leon Powe believes his days in Boston have come to an end. The third-year forward was not offered a qualifying offer from the Celtics and now has become an unrestricted free agent. While I am a little sad to see Leon go, it is not an overly surprising move. […]

Celtics Offseason Watch: Big Baby, House, Yao and more

As free agency nears, the Celtics not only have holes to fill on their roster, but also have some free agents of their own to negotiate with. The hottest of these names is forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis. The Boston Globe is reporting that Danny Ainge will extend a qualifying offer to Davis by the […]

Celtics 2009 Offseason Preview

Another NBA season has come and gone and this one unfortunately ended without banner No. 18. I think now is the perfect time to take a look at the Celtics and what needs to be done to get them back to their rightful place on the NBA throne. Here are five things that I think […]

Reinvention in the Celtics Off-Season

The Boston Celtics are synonymous with a few things: triumph, legacy, and restoration. Some look back upon the 2009 NBA playoffs as an untimely demise of the reigning NBA champions, while some refer to as an inevitable outcome after a cursed playoff season riddled with injury. Either way, Kevin Garnett’s energy and skill was not […]

If Only the Celtics Were Healthy…

First, allow me to congratulate the Lakers. Like it or not, the Celtics’ chief rival won their 15th NBA Title Sunday night. Kobe Bryant won his fourth title, and more importantly, Phil Jackson won his 10th Larry O’Brien Trophy as a head coach, passing Red Auerbach for most in NBA history. Watching the Lakers dispatch […]

Was the Celtics Season a Letdown?

Last summer I made a very early and bold prediction that the Celtics would repeat as champions again and that Tony Allen was going to develop into their dominant sixth man. Well, now we know that both of these predictions turned up wrong, and if those were my two big hopes for the season, then […]

Celtics Blow Out Bulls; Lead Series 2-1

The Celtics went into Chicago looking to win at least one game out of the next two to try and recover the home court advantage they lost after losing Game 1. They did just that and destroyed the Bulls 107-86 in impressive fashion to take the 2-1 series lead. The game was all Celtics and the Bulls […]

Leon Powe Tears ACL; Done for Year

The Celtics injury list just keeps on growing. More bad news for Celts fans as backup big man Leon Powe will miss the rest of the postseason with a torn left ACL, an injury he suffered in Game 2′s win over the Bulls. Powe went to the hospital during the game for tests and an […]

GARNETT MAY MISS PLAYOFFS

In a stunning but somewhat unsurprising statement, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers said today on WEEI that Kevin Garnett is definitely out for the first round of the playoffs and most likely will miss the entire playoff run. Garnett has been struggling with a knee injury and his return date kept getting pushed back. Doc […]

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 […]
