PLAYERS: Dave Cowens
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics have 22 former players/coaches/owners honored in their hallowed rafters. They have more retired numbers honored then any other professional sports team. They even retired Loscy’s name when he freed up his number 18 for Dave Cowens to wear. Did the Celtics’ record-22 people, devalue the honor of retiring an NBA jersey in [...]

Don't expect to see Pietrus this week

The Herald's Dan Duggan updates us on the status of Mickael Pietrus: Mickeal Pietrus will start an extensive physical process tonight, and continue tomorrow, ruling out any chance of the swingman joining his new team for tomorrow night’s game against Miami or Wednesday in New Orleans. Pietrus’ surgically-repaired right knee is of particular concern, considering that it...

Paul Pierce still hasn’t run full-court

Paul Pierce didn’t play yesterday, despite a mentality that led him to tell reporters, “If there was the slightest chance I could play, I’d definitely be out there.”A bone bruise in Pierce’s heel continues to sideline the small forward, who was especially missed in the fourth quarter yesterday when Boston’s offense lacked any semblance of rhythm or identity (a problem...

Will the Improved Play of Rajon Rondo Be Enough to Carry the Celtics?

How old is too old? The Boston Celtics could very well answer that question for us this season.  Since the Celtics won the title in 2008, there has always been talk of the current season being the Big Three’s “last chance.”  Experts said it two years ago when Boston lost in the NBA Finals.  They also said it last season and many are going with it again this year.  With...

At It Again: The Curious Case of Kevin Garnett

Shaking my head. I love Kevin Garnett. I loved him as a player before he was traded to the Celtics. I respected him as a man crying because of his loyalty to losing franchise. I’ve always respected the passion and the intensity that make him the player that he is. But when is it enough? When does the passion and intensity become more of a burden than an advantage? Maybe I’m...

Your Morning Dump... Where Celtics-Heat is a legit rivalry... or is it?

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. Now, Celtics-Heat? Yeah, that's got the "R" word written all over it. Remember, the Celtics were defending Eastern Conference champs last season, having knocked off both Dwyane Wade and...

Undefeated Hornets top winless Celtics

Jarrett Jack had 21 points and nine assists in his regular-season debut, and New Orleans dominated in its home opener, beating the winless Boston Celtics 97-78 on Wednesday night. The Celtics are 0-3 for the first time since 2006-07, the season before they traded to bring Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in to help star Paul Pierce. Pierce has yet to play this season because of a bruised...

Kevin SPARnett not penalized for Walker incident

   Kevin Garnett will avoid punishment thanks to the good graces of the NBA and will join the 0-1 Boston Celtics on December 27th @ 8:00pm to take on the 1-0 Miami Heat. Garnett, after bricking a game winning buzzer-beater against the Knicks, bullishly lunged at Bill Walkers throat before being saved by Baron Davis (of all people). Walker no doubt deserved it for running his...

Comments From the Other Side - Heat 12/27

As always, the comments are not quite as much fun when we lose, but there are some fun ones. It's interesting when the Heat fans are mentioning how many bad calls are going against the Celtics. That's when you know the officiating is REALLY bad. Enjoy today's comments in spite of the loss... Time to beat these Boston crumb-bums into the retirement home. We need...

Answering The Call: An Early Look Around The NBA

The NBA started, on Christmas, what was an unbelievable set of games. First game. Celtics, aging yet gaining BRANDON BASS? Rondo plays like he’s on fire. Ray Allen can still drop 3’s, and BRANDON BASS? WOW. They can still play. Just don’t watch them any time on a back to back. Which will be a lot. Jajuan Johnson and Etwaun Moore will have their hands full trying to sub in throughout...
