Gerald Wallace has been the invisible man since the trade was finalized to bring him to Boston. Rest assured, though. He does exist. Not only is Wallace real, but when he is healthy, he is also real good. The man known as “Crash” was a joy to watch in his prime, particularly his 6 1/2 seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats. To this day, the 2009-10 Bobcats, the only team in franchise history to make the playoffs to this point, remain a cult favorite among diehard NBA fans for their all-out, take-no-prisoners style. The days of diving headlong into the front row and scrapping for loose balls are not behind Wallace yet, but the collisions have taken their toll on the 30-year-old. Once a relatively decent offensive threat based on pure hustle alone, Wallace was virtually left unguarded by many opponents last season. Just three years ago, Wallace boasted a 3-point percentage of 37 percent, but he barely made 28 percent of his attempts in his lone season in Brooklyn while missing 13 games wi...

Bogans: Wallace and Humphries are better players than they showed last season

Even though most of the focus on newly acquired players Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallce is on their contracts and if they will even suit up in green, also acquired teammate Keith Bogans thinks the pair have plenty left to give. This from Jay King at Masslive.com: “I think a lot of people don’t realize that we played a lot of iso, one-on-one basketball,” Bogans said Monday...

Colton Iverson headed to Turkey?

Here's something you should know about Turkish sports media before you read this post: They love creating transfer rumors, especially when it comes to soccer.

Pierce and Garnett talk about their "Brother" Rondo and the challenges ahead for the Celtics

The Celtics are now Rajon Rondo's team. The transition began over the past two seasons, but now with Doc Rivers in LA, and Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in Brooklyn — the reigns have officially been given to the Celtics point guard.

Appreciating Danny Ainge

Anyone who frequently listens to one of my podcasts on CLNS Radio will hear me bristle when Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge is attacked on the show.  The other night while hosting a tribute program for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, one caller said that Ainge is “dead” to him for trading Pierce to the Nets. I immediately fired back that “Ainge is a warrior”...

Celtics Acquire Trade Exception

The Boston Celtics rebuild got a considerable yet understated shot in the arm with the trade involving Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce moving to the Brooklyn Nets. The deal also included a trade exception for the C's, which could prove to be a valuable asset over future seasons when the rebuild starts to take shape. It's not surprising that this hasn't been widely reported...

Another busy week in the Celtics world. Both the Nets and Celtics introduced their players acquired in the blockbuster trade that sent Pierce and Garnett to New Jersey officially last week.

Jeff Green Represents Celtics’ Future to Some Fans, Toxic Contract to Others (Poll)

Kevin Garnett said last year that Jeff Green has a chance to be one of the greatest players in NBA history. The Celtics are about to test Garnett’s theory, big time. Green, who spent much of last season as the fourth offensive option behind Paul Pierce, Garnett and Rajon Rondo, respectively, will start next season without at least two and perhaps all three of those players. Pierce...

Kris Humphries’ Ex-GF Myla Sinanaj Promoting Her Kim K Style Sex Tape

Just because you sort of look like Kim Kardashian and you slept with her ex-husband, doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to make millions of dollars if you make a sex tape like her. But, that is Myla Sinanaj hopes happens after she shot a scene with Vivid videos. Myla tells TMZ, “I may not like Kim, but she was smart and she’s sexy and I look a lot like her so why not make...

Paul Pierce sentimental for return to Boston, not mad about trade, also not sure when Rondo will be healthy

Back on draft day when it was announced that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were going to be traded, the immediate thing that crossed my mind was how emotional it will be to attend their first game back at the Garden next season.  I get goosebumps just thinking about.  To no surprise, Pierce has been thinking about it a lot too.  From Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix: Pierce...

Gregg Popovich called Doc Rivers for advice on dealing with Game 7 loss
