The photo? Oh, that has nothing to do with the schedule other than the Celtics Dancers will be at the home games (I assume). It’s just a photo of them in London from the Dancers’ Instagram page. If you want more photos… follow them on Twitter. They’ll tweet out a bunch of them.

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo pulled off an impressive feat in the team gym during a recent summer workout that has to be seen to be believed, as he took one step and leaped on top of a 4-foot-tall plyometric box. We're estimating the height of the box given that Rondo is 6-foot-1 and the box comes up to the middle of his chest. There doesn't appear to be any trickery...
Courtney Lee made his first public appearance as a Celtic at a Shamrock Foundation benefit soiree. WEEI's Ben Rohrbach posted the above interview with Lee, who reveals that he took less money to come to Boston but he wanted the chance to contend for a title and be part of a winning tradition.
From Rohrbach's YouTube page:

Dooling's ties with Rondo are reason enough to keep him around.With the most exciting moments of the offseason behind us, Celtics Town is counting down the Celtics’ roster from 16 to one. We’ll offer speculation on the role each player has to play, and where they’ll be in the rotation as we look towards the upcoming season. If you missed the last column in this series...
Jeff Green has given precious few interviews since undergoing season-ending heart surgery last summer. Even during the few occasions he answered questions from the press, his responses hardly revealed his innermost thoughts.But he opened up to Josh Zavadil of CelticsBlog during an article published today. Green spoke of:having troubles walking in the weeks immediately after surgeryfeeling...
Rajon Rondo isn't exactly known for throwing down monstrous dunks, but that doesn't mean the Celtics point guard can't get up there. In a video posted on the team's Facebook page, Rondo shows off his hops by leaping onto some random object. Not sure what the object is exactly -- maybe mats? -- but it's a pretty impressive leap, nonetheless. The best part of it...

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound it's... Rajon Rondo? Yeah, you heard me right. If you thought I was going to mention Superman, you'd be wrong.
Rondo hasn't really been know for crazy hops. You usually see him hit the paint and throw up a floater, lay up or pull up for a mid-range shot. However, he has dunked on Chris Bosh but then again, who hasn...
I know this isn't Celtics related, but it was too good not to share. In today's Olympic quarterfinal game between France and Spain, things got a little bit heated as France's Nicholas Batum hit Spain's Juan Carlos Navarro below the belt. As you can see, it wasn't accidental, either.
Now, that's not the best part, it was Batum's explanation for it afterwards...
Hey, I don’t create the stories, I just cover them, even on slow news days such as today. Above is a video featuring mush-mouthed NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal — who apparently has more free time on his hands than I do, as he refers to the video in its YouTube description as “Normal Stuff” — [...]
Paul Pierce seems to be one of the guys who "gets it" when it comes to playing in Boston. That might mean different things to different people, but the Celtics faithful have formed a special connection with the team's 1998 first-round draft pick over the course of his 14-year career. So it came as a bit of a jolt when Pierce recently discussed the possibility of testing...
One of the first times I ever saw Rajon Rondo play was in a preseason game against the New York Knicks. This was in 2006, his rookie season, which was obviously before he’d established himself as one of the more unique playmakers in the NBA. Knowing little about college basketball, I had no real impression of Rondo. I’d heard he was an athlete, and I knew he’d been sent...

I came across this picture and thought it was too great not to put up. That is our own Rajon Rondo doing a major dunk back when he was at UK. This kid has some serious hops. With Rondo's passing and ball handling usually taking center stage, we don't really think of him as a high flyer like we do say, Russell Westbook. But, this photo proves that he can get up there. ...
The first two matchups have been blowouts thus far with you, the voters. Rondo’s pass at Golden State as well as Pierce’s bomb during Game 5 against Miami took well over 90% of the vote, earning both plays a trip to the sweet 16. Today’s matchup features one of Rondo’s most amazing clutch plays not only against Miami but in all of the playoffs. It goes against what...
