Found August 16, 2012 on
It was a great year for the 2012 Boston Celtics team. With their backs against the wall multiple times during the season they fought hard and came up just one game short against the eventual NBA champion Miami Heat. With key injuries to players like Jeff Green, Chris Wilcox and Avery Bradley during the playoffs, some thought the Celtics wouldn’t make it past the second round.
Like we have seen so many times before they showed exactly how much Celtics Pride they had and nearly met in the finals for the 3rd time since 2008. This off-season has been full of moves. We watched Steve Nash and Dwight Howard head to Los Angeles and the Celtics finally broke up the big three as Ray Allen will be playing for the rival Heat next season.
Instead of looking at the negatives of last year let’s look at some of the top plays. It was one of the most exciting seasons in Celtics history and these plays show why. Will the Celtics beat the Heat next year and make another finals appearance? It’s definitely possible with this new and improved roster. The odds may or may not be with them according to many of the best online sportsbook, but if there is one thing we have learned it’s to never count the Celtics out!

Jeff Green is the subject of today’s Summer Forecast on ESPN Boston. Here’s my take on expectations for JG:
Chuck McKenney, Red’s Army
I’m expecting a lot from Green and that’s because Danny Ainge seemingly outbid the entire NBA with the reported four-year contract valued somewhere around $32-36 million. I’m begging anyone to show me a rumor that involved another team...

All hail Paul Pierce, the only player to rank in the top five in both seasons. The Celtics’ small forward ascended to the top in 2011-12, when he averaged 1.057 points per possession and shot 48 percent from...
Jessica Camerato, CSNNE
As a rookie on a veteran squad, Sullinger is ready to embrace his place among his teammates and contribute wherever he can. A dedicated rebounder (he averaged 10.2 boards per game last season), Sullinger is looking forward to crashing the boards and helping the team with second-chance points.
The Celtics are looking forward to him doing that as well. They...
When Jason Terry showed off his new Boston Celtics-themed championship tattoo over the weekend, we assumed he got the new ink in hopes of repeating history. In an interview with Celtics.com reporter Molly McGrath, he confirmed that was the case.
“I did it with the Mavericks before the season the year we won it,” Terry said. “So hopefully this year we’ll have the luck of...
Paul Pierce could retire today and he would be a prominent part of Boston sports lore. That may be why fans were a little startled earlier this month when the Celtics star said he would play out his current contract and examine his choices when the time came. Granted, Pierce did not say he planned to sign with another team, and there is no known contract extension on the table that...
Jared Sullinger decided to reward those of us who thought that watching the NBA Summer League for two weeks would be riveting television by revealing to us his full arsenal. He showed that his low-post moves and his ability to put the ball in the bucket were suited perfectly for the not-so-bright lights of the Summer League, a league that is notoriously filled with a few first...

Sweat dripped off my hands like I’d just gone for a 17-mile run in the Sahara Desert. Kevin McHale stood on one side of the hallway chatting to Mark Jackson. I walked on the other side of the hallway hoping my knees wouldn’t crumble beneath me and cause me to fall in front of my childhood hero.It was the first Boston Celtics game I’d ever covered, and I couldn’t even get...
The middle finger up move means, "I'm #1" correct? Reminds me of the infamous Celtics Halloween video of 2010. In case you're wondering I believe KG got a dragon tattoo from FY INK.
