LeBron James: A Performance for the Ages

After the Cavs were blown off the floor in game four, I along with the rest of the country had pronounced them dead. I had begun to write LeBron’s eulogy, complete with a bevy of excuses and narcissistic one-liners that he would have loved. I popped “The Godfather” in the DVD player and was prepared […]

Is Jae Crowder’s Injury a Blessing in Disguise for the Celtics?

Entering the March 10th game against the Houston Rockets, the Boston Celtics were 39-26 and seemed fairly well entrenched as the third seed in the Eastern Conference. Then Jae Crowder ran into the stanchion on a fast break, exited with a high ankle sprain, and hasn’t played since. In his absence, the Celtics lost four […]

The Celtics will bring a confident squad onto the Garden hardwood for Tuesday night’s matchup with the Eastern Conference first place Cleveland Cavaliers.

Streaking Celtics To Host Undefeated Warriors

The Celtics have won two in a row and four of their last five games with road wins over Miami, Sacramento, and New Orleans, as well as a solid victory at home holding off Jimmy Butler and the Bulls last night. The only loss in their last five games was a close one when Boston […]

In Ainge We Trust… I Guess?

I wrote before the draft that having a pick outside the lottery meant that Thursday night didn’t really matter unless Celtics GM Danny Ainge pulled off something crazy. Well, it appears that he tried, failed and got a consolation prize of a bunch of limited but somewhat talented pieces to add to his roster of […]

Lebron Falls Short as Warriors End 40 Year NBA Title Drought

Counting down to the tipoff of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, guest analyst Dwyane Wade brought up Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals, in which Lebron James nearly singlehandedly fended off the Boston Celtics and elimination (and his 2008 demons) at the TD Garden, effectively closing the Big Three title window for […]

Hello, My Name is Nick, and I am a Celtics Fan Rooting for Lebron James

Hello, my name is Nick, and I am a Celtics fan rooting for Lebron James in the 2015 NBA Finals.

As a Celtics fan – one who […]

Marcus Smart’s Progression Through his Rookie Season Impressive

The Boston Celtics kicked off their first round matchup in the NBA Playoffs with a 113-100 road loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon. Despite the C’s being a part of the playoffs, this is a good time to take a look at how Celtics rookie Marcus Smart progressed this season. If you take a […]

Date with Destiny: Celtics Set to Face Lebron, Cavs in Return to Playoffs

Some Celtics fans were probably hoping for the team to lose its last two games and avoid the Cleveland Cavaliers and their league best record 34-9 over the last three months in Round One. A first round matchup against the struggling and banged up Atlanta Hawks certainly seemed preferable, right? Well, destiny took the decision out […]

Who Would You Rather See the Celtics Play in the Playoffs?

After their win against the Pistons, the Celtics keep inching towards a playoff spot. The Green currently sit in seventh place in the East with four games to go, by virtue of holding the tiebreaker over Brooklyn. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot is four (any combination of Boston wins and Indiana/Miami losses). […]

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 […]
