2012-2013 Celtics Preview
To add another banner, the Green will have to dethrone King James and the Heat
Tonight is opening night for the NBA and the Boston Celtics. Make sure to tune in a little late if watching the Lebron, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh raising a championship banner makes you want to throwup as it does for me. Although watching this ceremony will be unbearable, I hope the Celtics get a little extra motivation from watching a rival raise a banner. That goes double when it is this Heat team.
The defending champs will be just as tough to beat this season, especially when the Celtics are a little bit older. The 2012-2013 Celtics will be a deeper team with more quality options coming off the bench. The loss of Ray Allen will turn out to be more of an emotional loss than an actual on-court loss. Ray Allen is a turnstile on defense and is a one-trick pony on offense at this point, even if that one trick is still great. The additions of Jason Terry (left), Cou...

All Celtics fans are delighted with Green's healthy return to the team and his impressive performance so far as cream on top. Today, an emotional story on Boston Globe has offered some details on how Green's healing process was. It describes in some detail how shocked Green was to hear about his condition, how lucky he was that the operation was done that early, how the first...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“I don’t know that I played at all,” he said. “It starts on the defensive end, and I wasn’t as aggressive defensively as I should be, but that will change. The first couple of minutes, adrenaline kicked...
For the first time in team history, it seems the Boston Celtics will have two legitimate candidates for NBA Sixth Man of the Year in Jason Terry (a former winner) and Jeff Green. Both will come off the bench, both will get plenty of minutes, and both will seemingly get some votes. But who has the upper hand in this battle?
Jeff Green looks like he will have a career year. Hes shooting...
Celtics showed last night that despite all of their off-season acquisitions, they still have some work to do. Boston fell to Miami, 120-107.
We got to see quite a few interesting pairs of kicks as Rondo & Jeff Green both wore a polarized pink colorway of the Nike Foamposite One. We also got another look at KG’s Anta KG3, and some Celtic colorways of the Nike Hyperfuse 2012...
This time last year -- and by that we mean "on opening night" and not "Oct. 30," when the lockout was still in effect -- Jeff Green was in street clothes watching the Celtics take on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Green had been diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm shortly before training camp, and he would be sidelined the entire season. Chris Wilcox was in...
"If you go small against us, you may be playing into our hands." - #Celtics Doc Rivers before the C's practice this morning.

The Celtics have so much versatility this season with small ball lineups. Let's see what Doc can throw out there to throw the opponents' defenses into disarray.
He can throw out...
In the world of sports talk radio – a world which I am becoming more and more disillusioned with – Tuesday night’s Celtics loss to Miami is reviewed in terms of absolutes. The Celtics can’t beat the Heat. Jeff Green sucks. Rondo is still a punk, and KG is classless.
Apparently they should not even play the rest of the season, since they don’t have a prayer of beating Miami...
Doc Rivers, Jeff Green, Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger discuss tomorrow's opening night game with the Heat,

Take a deep breathe Celtic fans, and repeat after me: "it is only 1 of 82" and you will be okay. Remember there would have been a mini-coup in South Beach if LeBron and his special edition golden Nikes had lost on His championship night.
That is good, but this is about the Celtics and how they fared. So lets begin.
Jeff Green, well it was his first NBA game in over...
Can the C's wipe the smile off Lebron's face?
Well folks it's almost here. The time for talking is nearly over, and the time for action is upon us. No I'm not talking about that jerk Sandy, I'm talking about tomorrow night's Celtics/Heat match-up. After over four months without NBA basketball, the wait is finally over. And while we unfortunately now live...

The raising of their championship banner did not cloud the goals of the Miami Heat on Tuesday. They defeated the Boston Celtics 120-107, on the NBA's opening night.
Emotions ran high in the battle between the two rivals who's last meeting was Game 7 of the 2011-12 Eastern Conference Finals.

Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green was really aggressive on the offensive end throughout the preseason.
The Boston Celtics enter the 2012-’13 season with high expectations after an offseason in which they revamped their roster. Many reporters and commentators are saying the Celtics should compete with the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.
Ray Allen decided to accept a deal with...
