Dear Avery Bradley, My Apologies

Dear Mr. Bradley, I am sorry, really sorry, I doubted your Super-powers and the impact one player can make on an ailing roster.

Video and photos of Rajon Rondo's strange pre-game ritual, submitted by Celtics Life readers

A few days ago, we posted an article about Jason Terry's description of Rajon Rondo's really bizarre pre-game ritual: "(Rajon Rondo's) routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off. It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out into a circle, high...

Comments from the Other Side - Hornets 1/16

The Celtics really lost focus last night and just played terribly.  I mean there's now excuse for a pro team to shoot 37% from the line.  That's lack of focus.  Maybe they all subconsciously were trying to make Austin look better because he's struggling so much and that was their gift to their coach.  Hopefully they get it together for Friday's game.   37% from...
