Last night, Kevin Garnett and Anta’s vice president, Mr. Xu Yang, unveiled the Anta “KGIII”. This is Garnett’s 3rd signature shoe with the Chinese sneaker company. Fans got to see the “home” white/green colorway for the first time. The KG3 features new elastic rubber technology to support both the heel and upper, and the traction pads on the bottom of the shoe are modeled after the parquet floor at TD Garden. The biggest change according to Anta is on the shoe’s tongue. The “KG” logo has been replaced with a silhouette of Ticket’s face. I haven’t seen a good close-up of that yet, but I’m eager to. I’m also hoping that these kicks find their way to EBay as the KGII did.

After a full offseason, this is how I see the NBA’s Atlantic Division playing out in 2012-2013. I think there are 4 potential playoff teams in the strongest division in the Eastern Conference. 1.

We’ve argued about Jeff Green’s contract for about two full months now. We’ve debated his ability, his mental state, and his potential. Numbers have been tossed around to defend our positions. But none of that really matters, because the Celtics had virtually no choice but to give Green his four-year, $36+ million contract.
The whole things starts with Kevin Garnett and...

Jason Terry and Dionte Christmas have known each other for five year, dating back to a Reebok camp in Philadelphia when Christmas was still at Temple University. While their relationship was still a fledgling at that point, consisting of a simple “hey I watch you, you’re pretty good” exchange, they have become much closer over this NBA offseason.After signing his non-guaranteed...
Now this one cracked me up! This evening I was looking over CLNS Radio’s daily Celtics links and noticed a great blog post from our friends at Celtics Green.

Danny had done a great job of re-building the Celtics this season. He has not only brought in good basketball players, but also good character guys. In the book Red Auerbach's Winning Ways, we read that "Red Auerbach chose his players for character as much as talent, and taught them to play for the team instead of individual glory. And the result of that approach was a...

NBA training camps don’t begin until later this month, but it appears that the Boston Celtics are trying to get a head start on the competition. On Wednesday, offseason acquisition Courtney Lee sent out a tweet describing a dunk over someone “six to seven inches taller” than himself. The dunk happened in a Celtics scrimmage, and a video has since been made available. ...
Here are 2 short videos from KG’s first appearance in China:
The first video is great. Before KG arrived, Anta & Hoop China asked his Chinese fans to submit video of themselves welcoming Ticket to China. Well, as you’ll see in this clip, the videos really moved KG. Maybe even to tears..
The 2nd vid is of Anta’s V.P. and Kevin Garnett introducing the KGIII. In the video...

Wow. So yeah, scope out the video at the 00:37 mark, Dudley straight up says:
“maybe one day, maybe I’ll be a Celtic. You never know.”
Sounds like Dudley wants to mix it up with the big boys now and be apart of a Conference Championship series, at the very least. Good for you Jared.
