Everyone, not just Celtics fans, have been concerned about Bill Russell since news of his heart procedure came out. Today, NBA.com posted an interview with the Celtics legend where he addresses the procedure and the state of his health, his Mentors' Golf Challenge, Team USA's performance in London, Ray Allen's departure, Jeremy Lin and much more.
Celtics legend Bill Russell was unable to attend a charity basketball tournament on Monday, and his absence reportedly was health related. According to the New York Post's Peter Vecsey, Russell has had two heart procedures within the last month, and some days are worse than others. Bill Russell was unable to make trip to Eastern LI from Seattle. He had 2 heart procedures within...
The Celtics have released a photo on instagram of the new plates that will go on the Celtics lockers this season. The season is getting closer and closer. I'm getting more and more excited for it to start. A neat feature of the locker plates is that they feature the names of all the Celtics that wore the numbers before. I love that they put the former players on the nameplates...
Rajon Rondo appeared on BET's 106 and Park tonight to talk about his career, the future, and interning for GQ during New York Fashion Week. Above is the video for the whole episode, so you have to skip to about 21 minutes into the video to get to Rondo's part.
Below is a 3 minute back-stage interview with Rondo:
Disturbing news today as it is being reported by The New York Post’s Peter Vescey that Boston Celtics legend Bill Russell has had two heart procedures performed on him in the last month.
This is certainly something to keep an eye on considering Russell’s age. He is 78 years old and he is the Celtics legend having won the most NBA Championships of any player in the league ever...
Jason Terry has settled into his new home and "The Jet" is ready for takeoff. Terry, who signed as a free agent with the Celtics this summer, provided fans with a video tour of his new place in Weston, Mass. In the video, produced by Reebok, Terry assigns a place for some artwork above his mantel and designates a spot for the all-important ping-pong table. He also sits...
We wish a speedy recovery to the legendary Bill Russell, who, according to Peter Vecsey, underwent two heart procedures over the past month. I was unable to find any other news reports about Russell’s health.
The 78-year-old Russell was scheduled to be in Long Island for the 2nd Annual Mentor’s Champions Golf Challenge. Here’s a description of the event, courtesy a press...
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.
Meanwhile, the player who Barnes would essentially be replacing, Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He’s the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any...
I don't usually post a lot of videos, and now two in a row. But, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, here is Reebok's video catching up to Jason Terry as he lands in Boston with his family and shows us his new home. Every time I hear Jason talk, I get excited. He's so excited to be a Celtic and when he talks about his intensity for the game mixed with KG's...
The top two seeds have advanced again but today’s matchup might be a bit closer than the other two. These two plays by Rajon Rondo were huge at different points during the playoffs, but both were clutch in different ways. Keep in mind on the #14 seed, you’re voting for Rondo’s clutch three-pointer ONLY vs Philly, not the entire compilation. I just didn’t make a new...
