PLAYERS: Kevin Garnett
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
COLUMBIA, Md. — They say you can’t teach size. You sure can buy it. The Boston Celtics boast three 7-footers and the 6 feet, 12 inch Kevin Garnett on their current 15-man roster. The question is; can any of them play? The NBA regular season is just five days away, so here’s a look at [...]

“Green Could Be a Problem This Season”

We’ve all marveled at Jeff Green’s performance thus far in preseason. There’s been the dunks, the blocks and the all-around explosiveness. Expectations among Celtics fans are very high going into the 2012-13 season. NBA.com’s Sekou Smith also believes that Green is on the cusp of what could be a very productive year: HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS – Jeff Green never makes it...

Your Morning Dump… where Doc likes the week off (and where Courtney Lee can jump really high)

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 like it,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters following the team’s practice on Thursday. “I’d rather have this than playing on Friday, I’ll say that.” Boston closed out its preseason schedule...

Boston Celtics: Life After Ubuntu

If you listen to Jason Terry in this video it sounds like the Celtics are still trying to find their way with less than a week left before opening day.  But I beg to differ.  Boston is one of the rare teams that has made wholesale changes in the off-season and won a championship the same year. Miami tried it, but we all know the result.  Winning a championship is purely about...

Video: Celtics Dancers photoshoot

Our favorite NBA dance squad did a photo shoot recently at the Celtics’ practice facility in Waltham. Here’s a look behind-the-scenes with Celtics.com’s Molly McGrath. The official photographer for the C’s and their dancers is Brian Babineau. Some of you are already familiar with his great work. You can follow him on Twitter and see more of Brian’s fantastic photos on his website...

Celtics' mission is to kill whoever they're against

Those are not my words, they are Jet's, quoted and slightly paraphrased from a wonderfully written Grantland piece by Amos Barshad. Are you somehow still not psyched about Jason Terry? Do you have questions about Celtics' spirit before the season starts? Please read that article and get psyched. (Also, it will probably feel quite refreshing after reading items in which Allen...

Bird’s Rookie Year – Game Seven vs Rockets

Justin Barrasso will be perusing the box scores of the Boston Celtics during the Larry Bird years, starting with Bird’s rookie year in 1979-1980. We’ll be posting the box score as well as some commentary each game day as we re-visit the ’79-’80 season. Enjoy. Celtics (4-2) vs. Rockets (2-3) Wednesday, October 24 Having lost two straight, the Celtics continued their six game...

Ray Allen speaks about Boston Celtics to Jackie MacMullan, doesn’t sound very sincere

Ray Allen gave an interview to Jackie MacMullan recently (read it if you haven’t), presumably so he could finally get all of his thoughts about the Boston Celtics off his chest and stop the media from badgering him about his past team on a daily basis.I personally thought Ray’s comments reeked of insincerity and wrote several hundreds of words about it on MassLive, but you can...

All About 18: Leandro Barbosa

With a full day of practice behind him today, "The Brazilian Blur," Leandro Barbosa is officially a member of the 2012-13 Boston Celtics.  With a journeyman career that saw stops in Phoenix, Toronto and Indiana, Barbosa's pretty happy to be in Green.  "I've been to Phoenix, I know how (winning) is and with this team I know it's going to be (demanded)...

Rajon Rondo, Doc Rivers 'Just Going to Let Ray Keep Talking'

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Ray Allen has been busy this week filling in the members of the Miami media about what went down behind the scenes -- in his view, anyway -- during his time with the Celtics. The new member of the Heat told reporters that the Celtics put him in a position where "we had to move" and that they used him mainly as a "decoy" toward the end of...

Heinsohn and Cousy say Celtics should retire #20

Don't think they mean Darren Daye. The Ray Allen stories just won't stop coming. In an article from Fox Sports Florida, legendary Celtics players/broadcasters Tommy Heinsohn and Bob Cousy are quoted as saying the C's should retire Allen's #20. Both cited Ray's contributions to 2008 championship team as the key factor. I've got a feeling the average Boston...

Would Delonte West be a good fit with the Boston Celtics?

Could Delonte West be headed back to Boston?If you haven’t heard the latest news from the Delonte West camp, it’s not great. West, whose struggles have been well-documented and thoroughly examined, was suspended indefinitely from the Dallas Mavericks, then cut. He took to Twitter to plead his case (probably a less than responsible choice, but there you have it), and the Mavericks...

Sean Grande interviews the Big Ticket

This audio of Kevin Garnett speaking with Sean Grande, the radio voice of the Boston Celtics, is from Media Day 2012. It aired a couple of weeks ago during halftime of a C’s preseason game. In it, KG pulls no punches as he speaks about Danny’s new acquisitions and his love for the city of Boston. The best part of the interview however is when Ticket talks about the legendary...

Does Ray belong in the rafters?

As Ray Allen continues to flap his gums now that he is surrounded by the games biggest prima-donnas, one has to wonder if he is not only burning the bridge, but blowing the thing sky-high between he and Boston. The burns were bad enough that Ray opted to take less money to join the Celtics biggest rival of this generation, but as if that were not enough Ray has used every opportunity...

The NBA amends All-Star ballot.

With players like Duncan, KG, and Lebron playing multiple positions it was only a matter of time.
