Found April 01, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Former Celtic Antoine Walker will be returning to Boston this week, but instead of suiting up for the C's, 'Toine will be performing the Harlem Shake with the Celtics Dancers at halftime of the Celtics-Pistons game on Wednesday. This will be the second time in a one week span that a popular figure from the 90's performs at an NBA halftime show, as Vanilla Ice rocked the mic during the Milwaukee Bucks-Oklahoma City Thunder game on March 30th. After he shimmies and shakes with the Celtics dancers, 'Toine suggested that the TD Garden holds a 4 point shooting contest as opposed to the usual half court shootouts that other teams promote, and he could kick it off as its inaugural participant. We'll see how that turns out. HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY FROM CELTICSLIFE.COM!  It would be pretty awesome if someone could actually convince 'Toine to shake it at halftime. In the meantime, you can watch this pretty awesome Antoine Walker "Shimmy" compilation by f...

Can the Celtics afford to keep resting Kevin Garnett?

It's getting close to panic time without KG. Yesterday we heard from Doc Rivers that Kevin Garnett was "feeling a lot better" and that he was "fine."  Most importantly, Doc said "If we were in the playoffs tonight, Kevin would absolutely be playing."  Well, last night wasn't the playoffs, and the KG/Pierce-less Celtics dropped another game...

Doc Rivers is elite, but Glaring Blunders Have Been Costly to Celtics!

Doc Rivers is an elite NBA head coach, but his mistakes are costing the Boston Celtics right now.Having won one NBA title back in 2008 and nearly two others during the last five years, there is now, no doubt that Boston Celticsrespected head coach Glen ‘Doc’ Rivers is as elite as any head coach in the game today.However, Rivers certainly isn’t perfect and to be honest about...

Video: Celtics, Lakers AT&T Commercial

Pretty humorous AT&T commercial featuring former Celtics Larry Bird and Bill Russell, also former Lakers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

Jeff Green’s Emergence Sparks Celtics

Entering this season many wondered about the role of Jeff Green! How would he play coming off of heart surgery! Would he get enough starts? Could he play at a high level? Would he fit in with the team? Was he worth that trade a few years ago? Well these past few weeks….Jeff Green seems to have answered all those questions with an exclamation point! First he scored a whopping 42...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Knicks 3/31

After back-to-back wins over Cleveland and Atlanta, the Celtics will travel to Manhattan tonight for a matchup with the Knicks. They need this one. Lee might not play and KG probably won't, but that doesn't lower my expectations of them. I refuse to believe that they can go from scoring a 118 points in a win to being blown out just because they were on the road. It being...

Exhausted Pierce, Celtics Drop Second Straight To Knicks

Knicks 108, Celtics 89 For the second time this week, the Celtics (38-35) were unable to compete with a team that now owns the longest streak in the NBA. The Knicks (46-26) won their eighth straight on Sunday night as they steamrolled through a porous C’s defense. Boston played well enough on the offensive end, but Without Kevin Garnett in the lineup, they were simply unable to...

KG participates in shootaround

Boston Globe he Celtics will not have Kevin Garnett tonight against the New York Knicks as they expected. The center is, however, closer to returning to the court after missing the past four games with ankle inflammation. Garnett was expected to participate in the team's shootaround Sunday morning at Madison Square Garden, which is an encouraging sign considering the team wanted...

Welptics: New York Knicks crush Boston Celtics 108-89

Melo and the Knicks punished Boston from 3-point range.Few things are as aggravating as hearing an opposing crowd chant “Bos-ton sucks,” but one thing that’s worse is knowing that they aren’t wrong. The Celtics, for lack of a better descriptor, sucked tonight. Aside from Jeff Green (and Chris Wilcox on two field goal attempts), no one shot above 50% from the field. The Celtics...

Recap: Celtics - Timberwolves

The Celtics drop the back end of a back-to-back and they'll return to Boston having lost both games of this small road trip. The loss tonight means that the Celtics are now 38-36 and it's pretty safe to say they won't be catching the Atlanta Hawks in this year's playoff race. Instead, they might start trending downward as the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Charlotte...

Pekovic pummels Boston Celtics inside, Minnesota Timberwolves win 110-100

The Timberwolves were the only team without a victory against the Celtics during the KG era, but all good things come to an end as the Celtics dropped the ball tonight in Minnesota. Paul Pierce missed the game for personal reasons (reportedly not related to his ankle injury on Sunday) and this depleted Celtics roster was no match for the almost-equally-depleted Wolves roster. For...

Celtics-Knicks Live: Jeff Green, Celts Look for Revenge Against Carmelo Anthony
