Retired NBA player Keyon Dooling has recently come out and disgust being sexually molested as a child. He appeared on Katie Couric’s talk show, “Katie” to recount how the abuse began and what’s he doing now to combat the situation. Keyon’s abuse began when he was 5-years old at the hands of one of his [...]

Jeff Green Cannot Play, And It Has Crippled the Boston Celtics Remember that vaunted Boston Celtics bench? The one that was going to carry the Celts at the very least back to the Eastern Conference Finals, with a chance to bring home Banner 18? The Celtics bench had the quintessential microwave in Jason Terry. [...]
TALKIN' 'BOUT PRACTICE
Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry has never been one to shy away from the limelight. Recently he had one of his shooting drills taped during practice. He took between ten and 13 shots from each corner, each elbow and the top of the key. In total, he put up 55 jumpers. Yes they were uncontested and yes it was during practice, but he hit 50 of them, including 13 in a row to...

In a move that surprises just about no one, the Celts have sent C Fab Melo and F Kris Joseph to their NBDL affiliate, the Maine Red Claws. Melo, a raw big man out of Syracuse, had yet to appear in any of the C's seven games this...
In an NBA.com article this morning by David Aldridge (scroll down past the Laker talk), Keyon Dooling tells the story of a nervous breakdown he sustained this summer, and his subsequent week long stay in a mental institution. He details the experiences that led to his decision to retire from the Celtics, which all stem from sexual abuse he suffered as a child.

The Celtics, after their big win in Chicago, head back to the Garden tonight to host the Utah Jazz. This won't be noticeable, but earlier today the C's sent Kris Joseph and Fab Melo down to the D-League. So if you for some reason thought they would play, they won't. Here are today's five things that the Celtics must do to win tonight:
The one (slight?) concern that Celtics fans had in the beginning of the season was the lack of a pure backup PG. There were two sides to that: Yes, it is very important to cut Rondo's minutes efficiently, yet there are no backup PGs available who can do that at a satisfactory level. Celtics' experiments with veteran PGs have not been the best as we all know (save for Dooling...

Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we've posted some pretty solid clips from the folks over at Network of Champions.As part of their series with Boston Celtics guard Jason Terry, they allowed Jason to show off his shooting stroke.Check out this clip where he makes 50 out of 55 straight jump shots:
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...

DeMarcus Cousins was suspended again yesterday. This time for 2 games for his attack on Spurs announcer Sean Elliott, based on Elliott's mild criticism of him on the air. Reporters wondered why he got such a serious penalty for going after an announcer, but it's obvious to me. It's called being a repeat offender. Try getting caught...

In a rematch of the most entertaining seven-game series I have been alive for, the Bulls and the Celtics square off in Chicago at 8:00 pm. This should be the first real test for the Celtics since their opener against the Miami Heat and a test of team cohesion. The boys from Boston have played and lost to some of the middle-of-the-pack teams in the NBA, this will be a good litmus...
