The NBA lockout is done, people. The league came to a tentative agreement early Saturday morning. Rejoice.We’re going to see Paul Pierce’s step back jumper. We’re going to see Rajon Rondo in transition, deciding whether to loft an alley-oop for Kevin Garnett or sling a left-handed scoop pass into Ray Allen’s shooting pocket. We’re going to see Jermaine O’Neal, sliding in at the last second to take a charge.We’ll get to see what Danny Ainge decides regarding Jeff Green and Glen Davis. We’ll get to see whether Delonte West re-signs in Boston. We’ll get to see whether JaJuan Johnson is strong enough to bang with Zach Randolph.In all honesty, I didn’t know how I would react to a labor agreement. Part of me felt I was too disappointed by the entire process to become jubilant whenever the lockout lifted. I wasn’t sure the end of the lockout would bring me joy, since I was so disgusted by both sides during the whole 148-day ordeal. Screw the players. Screw the owners. Ya know? But then t...

As video of the incident suggested, agent Bill Duffy stated that his client Rajon Rondo was not involved in any altercation at a Lowell nightclub. (Boston Herald)“Rajon Rondo was not involved in the reported incident that occurred last Friday night at a Boston (area) night club,” said Duffy. “Any reports regarding my client that have surfaced related to this are false. It’s...
Well, the NBA is back. It became official this morning when, opening the Boston Herald website, I found my long anticipated article from Steve Bulpett. Steve discussed a “Celtics official” who, as the Celtics limped off the Miami floor in May, was not at all discouraged by the idea of a shortened season. Bulpett also [...]
34-year old small forward Paul Pierce keeps rolling along for the Boston Celtics. He played in 80 games (all starts) for the Celtics last year and he averaged 34.7 minutes, 18.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steal per game. Pierce has now played in 964 games (961 starts) in his career with the Celtics and he is averaging 37.0 minutes, 22.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3...
Editor's note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends. Poor Tim Duncan. He just can't seem to get any help on defense. That was the case again in the 2002 NBA All-Star Game in Philadelphia. The Wizards' Michael Jordan gets by Kevin Garnett...
In a recent interview, following his Harvard charity show, Rajon Rondo said that he flirted with the idea of going overseas. He said the he and, former teammate, Kendrick Perkins would go together– as a package deal. Rondo said that he’d make no decision until January. “You never know, I’m still here. Probably won’t make [...]
The agent for Rajon Rondo spoke out last night in an attempt to refute claims that the Celtics guard was involved...
For any basketball fan, the news this morning was the best Black Friday deal anyone could have asked for. The NBA lockout is going to come to an end.
For Celtics fans, the gravity of the situation is even greater. We thought we were about to lose the last season, the last run at banner 18 with this current group. Not anymore.
One last chance to see Rajon Rondo throw an alley-oop...
This is the time of year when basketball fans expect crazy in-game dunks by NBA ballers, but with this crappy lockout ongoing, the posterization is being delivered via charity and exhibition games. While the quality of play is far less impressive than normal, the dunks are still pretty nasty.
Check out Jeff Green with a sick windmill over Celtics' teammate Rajon Rondo.
The Boston Celtics looked old in the playoffs against the Miami Heat. They’re one year older now. Ray Allen is bound to lose a step sometime. Kevin Garnett can’t remain an All-Star forever. Paul Pierce is reaching an age when his downhill slide is inevitable. Rajon Rondo might not be ready to take a (further) expanded role. Jermaine O’Neal’s made of peanut brittle. The...
