Found June 10, 2012 on Celtics Life:
WEEI Bass said he hasn't thought too much about the future but he also made it clear that he wants to return. "I do," he said when asked if he thought he would be back. "I would love to be back here. The fans here are unbelievable. For any player, this organization is the organization that you want to play for." Bass added, "This group here was like family. For the first time in a long time it felt like family. We had fights, we had ups, we had downs but at the end of the day we fought for each other. I’m just grateful to be a part of this group." "This group of guys, this team has been great to be a part of," he said. "We fought through so many different things. Teammates going down, injuries, we continued to fight. I’d say I love these guys. It was just a great experience being a part of this group." Would love to have Bass back, depending on the contract terms. Essentially that will be the case with KG, Ray, Bass, and Jeff...

Brandon Bass wants, expects to return to Boston Celtics next season

(ESPN Boston)“I do (expect to be in Boston). I would love to be back here,” Bass said after Boston’s 101-88 Game 7 loss to the Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena....

Report: Spurs could target Garnett this summer

Are the Spurs looking to pair Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on the court at the same time next season? If a report by Buck Harvey of The San Antonio Express-News has any legs to it, they just might. Harvey reports that a source in the Spurs organization told him this weekend that the team will look at all options this summer, including unrestricted free agent Kevin Garnett. While it...

Did Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen play their last games in Boston this weekend?

The Boston Celtics forced the Miami Heat to the brink of elimination. Kevin Garnett channelled his inner "Big Ticket" in the process. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce looked more their age. Through 20 postseason games, KG posted playoff averages of 19.2 points and 10.3 rebounds per night. Allen and Pierce did not help things as much as Celtics Nation hoped they would. Allen...

Rivers, Celtics look back on good season, bad end

Ever since the 1960s, when the Boston Celtics emerged as the most decorated franchise in the NBA, nothing less than a championship has satisfied the team or its fans. This year's team may have changed that. Overcoming age and injuries to make it to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the more-heralded Miami Heat, the Celtics bowed out of the playoffs on Saturday...

C’mon Man: Celtics future hall-of-famer Paul Pierce is not ready to let Kevin Garnett bow down to retirement just yet. After the team’s Game 7 defeat he told... To read this feature and watch press conference footage from Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, please click the link below.

'Let's Go Celtics' Chant Was About More Than Fans Giving Team a Strong Send-Off to Miami

The Boston Celtics were moved by the gesture, and it was not difficult to see why. Paul Pierce and company had played one of the worst games of their NBA careers, and what they heard from the stands at the TD Garden in the fourth quarter of Thursday's demoralizing loss was not boos or jeers, but a steady chant of "Let's go Celtics!" that lasted the final three minutes...

Will a loss tonight really signal the end for the Celtics?

The Celtics play the past two weeks has me now convinced that the Big Three 2.0 Era may not end tonight My own words from the past few seasons: May 12th, 2011 At some point though, it reaches a point where a team has to move on. The Boston Celtics have begun to look slower and older and it looks worse with each passing day. If losing this series to the Miami Heat is to be the end...

Duncan and Garnett to team up? / Pietrus wants to come back

San Antonio Express-News: The Spurs will consider everything and everyone this summer when free agency begins. But one option tossed out this weekend by one in the Spurs organization is not just another name. Kevin Garnett. Don’t know him? He’s better known in San Antonio as Tim Duncan’s evil twin. This is just a shade beyond speculation. I really doubt this would happen...

Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo Skip Handshakes, Head to Locker Room After Game 7 Loss (Video)

Three years ago, LeBron James was raked through the coals after he walked off the court without shaking hands following a season-ending Game 6 loss to the Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals. He infamously declared afterward that he didn't like shaking people's hands after a loss because he was "a winner." Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo had the good sense...

A pump up video... and my pre-game speech to the fans

  Ladies and Gentlemen,  We stand here tonight in our green and white gear... perhaps reading on a cell phone at a bar... on a tablet at some Starbucks, or on a computer at home... as a fan-base hoping for history.  We stand here tonight, as a diverse group of young and old... black and white... men and women... from dozens of countries...  united by a...

Brian Scalabrine does not want Mickael Pietrus to touch him (Video)

While many will look at the video above and see Mickael Pietrus rudely interrupting Brandon Bass’ Game 7 postgame interview, something else about the moment struck me as hilarious. Is it just me, or does Brian Scalabrine not want Pietrus touching him? This video appears to have been shot well after the game ended and the players showered and changed, so I can’t imagine it would...

Enemy Chatter: Wade kept Rondo away from the rim

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. "Certain shots hopefully I make that I missed. If not, I'll still make an impact on the game. I'm not a one-dimensional player." He proved that with his defense against Rondo, who closed with a playoff...
