Embattled linebacker Manti Te’o has been getting it from all fronts, whether it be news, meme’s, or social media jokes. No one had bothered to touch on sports television until last night.
Last night the Celtics lost a tough overtime game to the Bulls, and during that game, Boston forward Jeff Green did another one of his inconsistent disappearing acts, only accounting for 2 points in 19 minutes.
Leave it to Bill Simmons of ESPN to let Green and Te’o have it in subtle manner also.
“Jeff Green, he’s been invisible.”
“I mean, I keep waiting for him to start dating Manti Te’o.”
No word on ESPN on whether that was out of line or to below the belt.
Hilarious to me of course.

A few days ago, we posted an article about Jason Terry's description of Rajon Rondo's really bizarre pre-game ritual:
"(Rajon Rondo's) routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off.
It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the
ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out
into a circle, high...
Joakim Noah and Kevin Garnett have a history against each other, and Noah had a funny response when asked about KG's trash talk.
If you thought the trade rumors were bad before, just wait.
According to Boston Globe writer Gary Washburn, Doc Rivers ripped into the Celtics Sunday night after their loss to Detroit 103-88. One tactic he unleashed was threatening to shakeup the roster to get players who are “committed to being a good basketball team.”
I gotta either find the right combination, the right...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Doc Rivers can't stand mediocrity. If his Boston Celtics don't shape up soon, he wants some of his players shipped out. Rivers, the Celtics' coach, was mortified by his team's third straight loss, a 103-88 thumping by the Detroit Pistons at The Palace on Sunday. His club never had a lead as it sank to .500 nearing the season's midway point...
Kevin Garnett will never be misunderstood as a nice guy. The NBA is full of personalities that are competitive yet not capable of the misdeeds that Garnett is capable of. Joakim Noah is not exactly a pillar of virtue either. His history does not reflect someone who is afraid to sneak in a low-blow from time [...]

Terry P: Jeff Green. Now look, I have been hard on him PLENTY and still want to trade his...

Highlights from tonight's overtime loss above. Celtics box score below.
Clifford Ray isn't so sure about all this.
Ray watched the Olympic gold medal game in August. He watched as a Spanish team without Ricky Rubio gave the U.S. men a scare, and he has a theory about why the Spaniards didn't end up handing the Americans a silver and keeping gold for themselves.
"I knew that whenever they went to the Olympics and they went to the Olympics...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- So much for jet leg.
Three days after flying across the Atlantic and back for a game in London, the Pistons came out Sunday and beat the Boston Celtics, 103-88.
"We got into the gym when we got back, just to get the jet lag out of here and get some shots up," said Brandon Knight, who finished with 15 points. "We had some great workouts and...
By now it is no secret that Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett likes to talk on the court. Whether it is an attempt to gain a mental edge over an opponent or KG genuinely not liking his adversary, he has been known to let his opponent know how he feels.
Typically opposing players won’t elaborate on on the court trash talk, but Bulls center Joakim Noah had some interesting...
After the game last night Joakim Noah (son of French professional tennis player Yannick Noah) was asked about playing defense against Kevin Garnett. Here's what Noah had to say:
(I was) just playing defense. Just playing sound defense, just contesting his shots. He's a helluva competitor. He's always on some bulls---. Always on some bulls---. Just trying to throw elbows...
The Boston Celtics' recent roller-coaster ride of results has taken another downward dip. That's the same trend they've been on against the Detroit Pistons lately.
The streaky Celtics look to get back on track Sunday night when they visit a Detroit team playing for the first time since its trip to London.
After losing four straight Dec. 27-Jan. 2, Boston won six in...
