Ray Allen wants to re-sign long term with the Boston Celtics

Ray Allen is in the final year of his deal. Then again, it has been well documented that just about everyone on the Celtics roster is in the final year of their deals. Allen will turn 37 years old this summer and while most superstars his age would have started to fizzle out three or four years ago, Ray has continued to build his case as the greatest shooter the sport has ever...

Allen proving doubters wrong with longevity

If Ray Allen ever has an infomercial touting his workout secrets, it wouldn't be a surprise if LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are quickly on the phone to those operators standing by. The Miami stars have been observing Allen for years, and they're continually amazed at what they've seen. The Boston shooting guard is 36 but hardly seems to have lost anything. Allen is...

Taking Stock: C's-Wizards home-and-home

After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players... and maybe coach's... performance.  If we like what we see, we're buyin'.  If we don't, we're sellin'.  Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game Rajon Rondo: He's here so much I'm going to make him part of the template.  The triple-double in game 1 earns...

Celtics improve to .500, beat Wizards for the second straight night

(Editor's note: My apologies for the lack of updates or recaps on Sunday and Monday. It was a holiday weekend. You understand, don't you? Don't you?) I'm dying to give the Celtics all of the credit in the world. I really am. I just can't bring myself to do it. It has nothing to do with what the Celtics have or haven't done over the last two nights. There...

After watching Greg Stiemsma block three more shots Sunday night in Washington, Paul Pierce began offering an unsolicited...

From the GreenLab: The Backstabber

One of the staple offensive sets that the Celtics run is called "Floppy."  We covered it quite extensively last season, but essentially the main play is to set a back screen (or two, or ten) on the baseline for Ray to curl or "flop" around and get open for a jumper.  But it also has several options on it as well, including a new wrinkle this season that I'...

Celtics beat depleted Nets for 4th straight win

The Celtics shook off a lackluster first half blowing out the Nets 89-70 in Boston .  New Jersey was without  Brook Lopez and Deron Williams yet hung with the Celtics in the first half. Boston took control in the 3rd quarter and never looked back in a blow out win. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points. In Ray Allen's absence Avery Bradley stepped in nicely with 11 points...

John Wall Welcomes A Rookie to the NBA

Celtics rookie Greg Stiemsma has blocked everything in sight so far this season. But every shot blocker knows the risk that comes with swatting shots…sometimes you get dunked on. Bad. And John Wall caught Stiemsma with a nasty one last night. Do you think Wall deserved the technical? We don’t. Follow Josh on Twitter at [...]
