So Tired of the LeBron James Storyline

Someone should probably tell the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder that they’re wasting their time. For that matter, the NBA should just step in and cancel the rest of this Celtics-Heat series. What should have a battle between two ideologies–young vs. old, flashy vs. scrappy, the individual vs. the team–has been all but […]

As Suspected, Rondo Suspended for Game 2

It’s official, Celtics fans. Rajon Rondo will serve a one-game suspension for making contact with a referee, forcing him to sit out Game 2 in Atlanta. With the Celtics miraculously back within four points with 41 seconds to play in Sunday’s Game 1, Rondo objected strongly to referee Marc Davis’s foul call on Brandon Bass […]

Pierce and Bradley Carry Celtics Past Magic, Clinch Fifth Straight Atlantic Title

Paul Pierce might be nearing the finish line of a career that will end in the Hall of Fame and a spot in the TD Garden rafters. But if these are Pierce’s last games, The Truth wants to go out in style. Pierce scored a game-high 29 points and recorded a career-best 14 assists, carrying […]

Celtics Report Card: Even a Raptors Loss Can’t Faze Me

Normally a loss to the lowly Toronto Raptors (missing Jose Calderon and Andrea Bargnani, no less) would have me in fits. But this is no normal season, and this wasn’t a normal week. The Boston Celtics took two of three in their one and only back-to-back-to-back of the season, including a win without any members […]

Garnett and Celtics Overcome James, Heat

Kevin Garnett‘s24 points and 9 rebounds and Paul Pierce‘s 27 and seven were enough to overcome 36 points, seven rebounds and seven assists from Lebron James, as the Boston Celtics defeated the Miami Heat, 115-107, Tuesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. The Celtics now trail the idle Indiana Pacers by just two games for the third […]

Celtics Report Card: Lakers Drown C’s Optimism

After blowing a five-point lead against the Los Angeles Lakers with less than three minutes to go, the Boston Celtics effectively ruined my Sunday evening with a whole new meaning to “March Madness.” The Celtics were also flat-out flattened by the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, losing by 32 with first place in the Atlantic division […]

The Expendables: Former Celtics That Could Rejoin the Team

With the threat of injury a big concern for the Boston Celtics this season, seemingly every player on the current roster could find themselves in Doc Rivers’ rotation at some point. So far in this young season it’s been a struggle for the likes of Avery Bradley, E’Twaun Moore, and Sasha Pavlovic to prove they are […]

Celtics Sign Sasha Pavlovic to Apparently Second Season

In a move sure to please anyone named Sasha Pavlovic, the Celtics re-signed Sasha Pavlovic to a one-year deal Monday. The move is undoubtedly a thing come true for Celtics fans, who best remember Pavlovic as the guy Ray Allen made cry during the 2008 NBA Finals. Wait, that was Sasha Vujacic? Then who the […]

2011 Celtics Free Agent Reports: Arroyo, Murphy, Pavlovic, Wafer

Perhaps the guys who are in limbo the most are the guys who saw little to no time. Carlos Arroyo, Troy Murphy and Sasha Pavlovic were all mid-season pick-ups and all three will most likely not be returning to the Celtics next year. Von Wafer, on the other hand, has a chance to be back […]

“The Big 4″ Sit as Celtics Close Out Season With Win Against Knicks

It was supposed to be a preview of arguably the most intriguing first round matchup of the playoffs, but with the “Big 4,” Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups all watching from the bench it was more of a glorified pickup game. The Celtics bench got to play as the starters for the second straight night. […]

Less-Than-Stellar Performance Allows 76ers to Defeat Celtics

It wasn’t exactly a good day for the Celtics. They lost their second game in a row, this time to the 76ers in Philly, 89-86. Boston is only half a game above Chicago in the standings, but has clinched some playoff spot (along with the Bulls, Heat and Spurs); Chicago is the only team to […]

The Lakers haven’t even lifted the Larry O’Brien trophy yet and already the NBA rumor mill is heating up. The latest gossip is the possibility of a trade that would send Shaquille O’Neal from the Phoenix Suns to the Cavs in exchange for bottom feeders Ben Wallace and Sasha Pavlovic.
