After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room.
The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful the past six years, they will snap out of their stupor despite giving the same effort they have been for the first 40 games.
The results from those 40 games are in and the Celtics are an average team at best, primed for an elimination by the Heat in the first round of the playoffs. They don’t play well at home. They don’t play well on the road. They don’t consistently defend. They don’t consistently rebound. And they don’t consistently score.
They miss Ray Allen. And not just because he was a long-range scorer and could get to the free throw line. He also brought professionalism and seriousness to the table. The lo...
BEST OF MAXIM
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...
I am not even sure why I continue to post these videos because nothing Rajon Rondo does anymore impresses me. I feel as though he has already accomplished everything in the NBA and performed every type of pass ever that there is no way he can create a new pass. Keep Calm and Rajon.
Carmelo Anthony says he just wants a victory in Boston and has moved on from the trash-talking incident with Celtics forward Kevin Garnett that eventually got him suspended one game.
“I don’t care what message I sent to him,’’
After being down 27-18 after the first quarter, the Celtics cut the deficit to 4 points at the half. The Pistons then proceeded to outscore the Celtics 29-13 in the 3rd and 22-17 in the 4th.
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both scores 16 points, a game high, and Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple double, notching 8 points, 9 rebounds, and 15 assists. Box score below, highlights...
Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...

Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 7 Rebounds
Garnett had a decent game tonight, from the boxscore stats, but his defense was pretty bad. Detroit's frontcourt put a beating on him. But it is not entirely his fault. He has no legitimate froncourt partner to help him out when the going...

Good piece this morning on KG from the NY Times’ Harvey Araton. Heading into tonight’s game with the Knicks, Melo & KG have supposedly put their squabble behind them. But we all know that with KG, anything’s...

Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 5 Rebounds
Garnett did not have a great night. The 5 blocks were great, but the rest of it was ugly. He wasn't great defending the pick and roll, he didn't rebound great, and he didn't shoot very well. The 16 points seem...
Carmelo Anthony is expecting some fun. Has anyone checked to see what Kevin Garnett plans on bringing Thursday night?
In their first game since Garnett got Anthony all worked up to the point of chasing him to the locker room and team bus after the game, the Knicks and Celtics will be facing each other Thursday night in Boston. But Anthony says he’s not expecting anything to spill...
No matter what was said between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during and after the last time the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics met, Anthony says the incident is behind him.
Thursday night's rematch in Boston simply is one between two struggling teams looking to right the ship.
On-court bickering led to technical fouls for both players in the final minutes of Boston...
The Celtics are just so inconsistent. Doc was right to call them out after this game. Hopefully that gets them going. They've proved that when they give the effort they're very good. I love the Bird/Laimbeer fight. My favorite part of that was afterwards when they told Bird that Laimbeer said he was just going for the ball and Bird said that he was just giving...
