Doc Rivers Believes JaJuan Johnson Has ‘NBA Talent’ But Ex-Celtics’ Success Depends on ‘Mental Makeup’

BOSTON — The last nine months were interesting for JaJuan Johnson, to say the least. From first-round pick by the Celtics to bench jockey to trade chip and, most recently, top pick in the NBADL draft, the 23-year-old Purdue product has so far not panned out as it was hoped when Boston took him with the 27th pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Before Johnson plays a single game with his...

Celtics Locker Room Report: Sullinger Starts Again and Doc on the Lack of Good Big Men in the NBA

76ers-Celtics Preview

All of the Boston Celtics' pieces are present. For coach Doc Rivers, it's just a matter of fitting them together. In a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference semifinals, the revamped Celtics will try to again fine-tune their chemistry on Friday as they host the Philadelphia 76ers, a team relying on stingy defense without its marquee addition. After starting the...

KG's Interviews are Priceless

Kevin Garnett has given us much enjoyment with his post game interviews. We have heard rants about how he can shoot threes and how he's not old. We've heard analogies about making tortillas and casseroles. Whatever he comes up with, it's always fun. But, when even KG calls an interview weird, you know it's going to be fun. Here is a transcript from Green Street...

Kevin Garnett’s Practice Habits Spur Celtics Teammates to Greater Emphasis on Preparation

WALTHAM, Mass. — After more than 45,000 minutes played and some 24,000 points scored, Kevin Garnett has gotten the hang of this professional basketball thing. But as the surefire future Hall of Famer embarks on his 18th NBA season, he is the subject of constant monitoring, probably even more so than he was as a teenager in 1995. Back then, after all, nobody knew what to expect...

Paul Pierce throws nice behind-the-head pass to Kevin Garnett (Video)

I'm still trying to figure out how Boston Celtics guard Paul Pierce was able to thread this pass to Kevin Garnett against the Washington Wizards. Maybe, he has eyes in the back of his head:

Your Morning Dump… Where the Garnett/Sullinger ticket is a winning one

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. “I thought he did a great job,” Garnett said of Sullinger’s first start during the Celtics [team stats]’ win in Washington last Saturday. “He’s a no-nonsense guy. Not that I’m shooting down the other...

Celtics Live Blog: Paul Pierce, C’s Shoot for Three Consecutive Wins as Sixers Come to Town

8 a.m. ET: As underwhelming as the first two weeks of the season have been for the Celtics, the team can climb above .500 and notch its first three-game winning streak of the season with a victory on Friday against a familiar foe. The rival Philadelphia 76ers come to town with just as many nagging questions as the Celtics. For the Sixers, the primary concern is when they will finally...

Celtics Trail 42-37 at the Half Despite KG’s 10 Rebounds

KG compares Sullinger to Perkins

Kevin Garnett says Jared Sullinger reminds him of Kendrick Perkins when it comes to basketball IQ and unselfishness. — Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 6, 2012 Obviously a pretty big compliment by the Big Ticket.

Ugly photo for an ugly game. Welp, the Celtics are still working in the new guys in and while it was ugly, they get their second straight win over the Wizards, 100-94 in overtime.

Paul Pierce was playing like a man on a mission, knocking down a three...

Comments from the Other Side - Wizards 11/7

As the season heats up, the comments are going to get better. Today's were much better than the previous game. It's always interesting to see which players other fan bases hate the most.
