The one thing that makes me wander what the "#@#$", Doc Rivers and Danny have in mind for the race to the playoffs was the trade of Jason Collins. Collins has become a part of the long line of 'bigs' who had lost their athleticism and ability to contribute that have donned the green in the past few years. It first started with P.J. Brown, but he did provide his two minutes of fame to contribute to banner 17. The Celtics thought they could duplicate that effort with Rasheed Wallace, who promptly showed that "ball did lie" when it came to him.  He is currently on injured reserve for the Knicks after attempting a comeback. Then there was the other O'Neal, Jermaine, whose hands kept getting cold because he didn't get the tou...

Celtics See Green-er Pastures Ahead

Kevin Garnett sat out Friday night (DNP – old and tired) and  Jeff Green finally got his chance to start. Doing the best KG impression he could muster, he tore up Los Suns with a season-high 31 points and added 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 5 blocks. Oh, hello there! What did you say your name was?

Who are the Celtics right now? Can they win in the playoffs?

It's hard to say where these guys are heading. I have no idea what to make of this team at the moment.  Through the first half of the season Boston lost a lot of games to opponents with inferior talent.  I remember thinking on many occasions that the C's couldn't beat any quick young teams, regardless of how bad their players were.  However, my outlook remained positive...

Recap: Anyone still awake?

You knew that the Lakers and their fans would be emotional tonight, and that L.A. would feed off of it, but the Celtics showed little resistance. Call it “tired legs”, second night of a back-to-back, blah blah. Boston just did not play defense tonight. Period. They fall 113-99 on L.A. As Doc told his troops at halftime, “they’re getting whatever they want..” Couldn’t...
