We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Dallas.
Carlisle couldn’t resist having a little fun at the media’s expense before Wednesday’s game.
He was asked about the 1986 Boston team that he was part of and won the NBA championship.
“I know my number is going to be retired here, and I’ll be very proud when it goes up,” Carlisle said. “I’ll try to be here for that.”
Carlisle wore No. 34, which also happens to be Paul Pierce’s number.
“He’ll share in that, too, I’m sure,” Carlisle said.
Oh that sly Rick Carlisle.
Congrats to Paul Pierce for surpassing 23,000 career points last night. Pierce now ranks 25th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. The Truth could climb as high as 20 by the end of the season. He’s some 700 points behind Charles Barkley.
For those curious, Carlisle averaged 2.2 points, 1.0 assists and 0.8 rebounds per game from 1984 – 1987.

With the Mavs facing the Celtics, ex-Mav Jason Terry's new team, head coach Rick Carlisle said "Does a bear [expletive] in the woods?" when asked if the team misses Terry.
You hear about how team leaders do everything for their teams? Well, the Celtics' leader is scoring, passing, rebounding, defending... and now... it looks as if he's even driving his teammates to and from work.
Or so it seems.

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics will play a great game on Wednesday, as will their opponent, the Mavericks. Or maybe only one team will play well. Or maybe neither. Nobody can really tell anymore with these two teams.
The Celtics and the Mavericks each made some interesting moves during the offseason. While the Celtics went all-out with depth to put them in position to contend for the next...
Locking down Philly isn't exactly "impressive."
There's been a lot of talk the past few days about the Celtics recent improvements on the defensive end. After giving up 100 points or more in 7 of their first 14 games, Boston has now held their last 6 opponents under the century mark. However, there is a distinct possibility that this has very little to do with...
COLUMBIA, Md. — Days after returning to the sidelines, Kevin McHale got a lift from the player he drafted in Minnesota and forward who brought championship basketball back to Boston.

Apparently Doc Rivers was too busy being the head coach of the Boston Celtics to teach his son some valuable lessons in life.
Doc's son Austin Rivers, who plays guard for the New Orleans Hornets (soon to be Pelicans?) has a tough time shopping for groceries, and apparently can't parallel park. If we can take anything from this video it may be showing us that the driving...

Kevin Garnett and Kevin McHale shared a very touching moment after the Rockets defeated the Celtics 101-89 in Houston on Thursday night. McHale drafted Garnett in 1995 and the two have remained close, and it was an extremely powerful image as Garnett embraced his former coach and offered his condolences on the the passing of McHale’s daughter Sasha in November:
