Knicks Still Looking to Trade for Rehabbing Rondo

At 9-19 and currently out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture, ESPN is reporting that the New York Knicks are looking to boost their postseason prospects by landing rehabbing Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo. It’s hard to take such rumors seriously coming out of New York because the Knicks labeled this year’s team championship […]

State of the Celtics: Rondo Cleared for Full Contact, But Leads Slipping Away

The Boston Celtics had a tough time this week as they held a 19-point advantage after the first quarter against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night (thanks in part to a great tip-in play), but collapsed over the final three quarters to end up losing 107-106. They may have won their other two contests against […]

Rajon Rondo Returns to Full Practice for Celtics

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was cleared by doctors to return to full practice over the weekend, nearly 11 months after a torn ACL knocked him out of the 2012-13 season. While this is clearly terrific news for Boston, team president Danny Ainge was cautious when asked about a timetable for Rondo’s return to game […]

Reunion Week: Celtics to Face Garnett, Pierce, and Doc with Nets and Clippers Up Next

It’s reunion week for the Boston Celtics, as they will play back-to-back games against the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers, bringing back old faces Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Doc Rivers (and Jason Terry, I guess, but I hardly think he counts). Pierce will be on that suit and tie with a broken […]

State of the Celtics: Atlantic Division in Sights

The Boston Celtics finished the week with a 2-2 record, with their latest victory coming against the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night by the score 108-100. Jordan Crawford once again led the way with 25 points, including four triples and 8-of-14 shooting from the field to go along with a team-high five assists. As a […]

State of the Celtics: Phil Pressey, Jared Sullinger Making Great Strides

With a 2-2 record last week, the Celtics have gained some ground in the Atlantic Division with the 6-10 record through 16 games. Riding a two-game win streak into tonight’s contests against the Memphis Grizzlies, the green team looks to keep it going with a full team effort that starts from the hot shooting Jordan […]

Knicks, Rockets Reportedly Interested in Rajon Rondo

The New York Knicks and Houston Rockets are both considering trade offers to acquire Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, according to reports that have surfaced over the weekend. Frank Isola of the Daily News mentioned the Knicks’ interest in an article published Sunday, saying that Rondo is their primary target as they look to trade […]

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’ […]

Video: Rondo Honors Red Sox with Fake Beard for Celtics Home Opener

When the Boston Celtics opened the 2013-14 NBA season at home on Friday night, injured All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo honored his baseball counterparts, the 2013 World Series champion Red Sox, with a glorious fake beard hooked around his ears. Addressing the crowd before tipoff, Rondo stepped onto center court to say a few words […]

Should the Celtics Trade Rajon Rondo?

The question should be will Celtics trade Rajon Rondo next? I understand the domino effect concept by Jalen Rose, but remember Ray Allen left Boston. Allen could have come back to Boston but decided to go to Miami. If Allen didn’t go to Miami, I believe Garnett and Pierce would have stayed this year. Since […]

State of the Celtics Roster: Backcourt

The schedule for the upcoming NBA season has been released, most of the top free agents are off the market, and the Celtics haven’t done much at all since the blockbuster trade that sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to Brooklyn. The lack of activity further suggests that Danny Ainge is looking to […]

The 2013-2014 NBA schedule was released Tuesday evening and, for Celtics fans, there are a few important games to highlight. The Celtics and first year head coach Brad Stevens kick-off the season on October 30th in Toronto against the Raptors who will be looking to capitalize on a weakened Eastern Conference and make a run […]

The Celtics announced this week that they have signed both undrafted point guard Phil Pressey and Brazilian center Vitor Faverani to multi-year contracts. Faverani’s deal is thought to be somewhere in the three-year, $6 million range, while Pressey’s is for the rookie scale minimum. Faverani is a 6’10″ big man who spent last season playing […]

Celtics Nets Trade: Keep Him or Dump Him.

As the Boston-Brooklyn trade becomes official today, it’s time to dissect what the Celtics were left with in exchange for their two franchise players (and Jason Terry). Below is a list of the parts coming to Boston, with an analysis of whether the Celtics should hold on to each piece, or let it go. BOSTON […]

Josh Smith gets 4 year deal with Pistons

ESPN.COM reports that the Detroit Pistons have signed free agent Josh Smith to a 4-year-deal worth $56 million. Smith also considered the Atlanta Hawks and Houston Rockets. Early speculation had Smith going to Houston in a sign and trade to join newly acquired Dwight Howard, but an offer was never made. Reportedly close friend, Rajon Rondo, […]
