— Gary Tanguay (@Gary_Tanguay) October 16, 2012Sources tell me Kris Josepf has made #Celtics They have waived Smith and Christmas @alexkennedynba @ericpincus @zachlowe_nba @stevekylernba— Peter Yannopoulos (@PeteYannopoulos) October 16, 2012My guess is this was done to give them a shot to latch on with another team. I think Christmas very well might. It was a numbers crunch on the Celtics for Christmas. If he was a point guard I think he would have stuck. If the Celtics cut Kurz and Downs, as expected that will bring their roster down to 14. That would then allow them a free roster spot to add another waived/bought out player at a later time. It's also possible that they could keep Downs, but right now that's unlikely. Celtics are very close to the luxury tax wall and every contract they give out will effect that. part of the agreement in signing Jason Terry with the ...

Figures, I leave the computer for 30 minutes and the Celtics sign a veteran point guard. We all knew that a veteran was coming after Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith were waived yesterday. I had a feeling that they already had the player in place that they were going to sign or they wouldn't have cut them now.
The Celtics added veteran combo guard Leandro Barbosa to the...
Jason Terry told CLNS he is ready to lead after his first game in the Garden as a Celtic. Rajon Rondo had 11 assists in extended preseason minutes Tuesday night. KG talked the state of the Celtics defense after losing to Brooklyn. Courtney Lee also made his Garden debut Tuesday night. Armond Hill was the [...]
We know it's bound to happen once in a while. The head coach has a player's back and the ref has enough and out goes the coach. It's happened a few times with Doc and will probably happen again. Last night, Doc put his coaches in that position by staying in the locker room after the half. Word is that Doc just wanted to watch the presidential debate but that's...
To paraphrase Allen Iverson “Preseason... we talkin bout preseason... not a real game but preseason.” That is what we are relegated to; fawning about the preseason because of last year's shortened season and even shorter preseason. It affected the Celtics the most, leaving them running on fumes and little to no help from their bench. A bench who found itself persona non...
Jason Terry will be posting an online diary up on ESPN Boston. Here's a snippet from his first entry:
The funniest moment on the trip was we were attracting a lot of attention because of KG's [Kevin Garnett] size. He's so tall that they recognized him easily. We were getting bombarded by pictures. So all of sudden, KG takes the camera from one lady and started taking...
The NOC has been doing behind-the-scenes videos with new Celtic Jason Terry. In the most recent edition just released, JET and Dionte Christmas play a game of pick-up basketball against 5 female basketball players. Hopefully this wasn't the reason Christmas got waived from the team!
This one just in from Jason Terry is a Celtic...Terry and Christmas play 2 on 5 vs the Roxbury womens team and lose! Thanks to Tom Reed at thenoctv.com

The new look Nets came to town to face-up against the Boston Celtic’s at home in the TD Garden. Brooklyn entered the Garden as one of the most improved teams in the Atlantic Division and hope to compete for a division title. The Nets were able to hold onto their franchise player, Deron Williams by bringing in six time NBA All-Star Joe Johnson. The Celtics and their fans have gotten...
The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Boston Celtics 107-75 during exhibition play Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Celtics slogged their way to their third preseason loss in four outings. Paul Pierce scored a team-high 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting, but also had four turnovers. For the Sixers, Spencer Hawes put up 17 points and eight rebounds in 17:36 off the pine, while...
1st time all star? Comeback player of the year? Top 25 player in the NBA? How about all three. Jeff Green is back and his resurgence is as important to the Celtic's future as is Rondo's steady climb to become and maintain the title of the league's best playmaker. What is even more important is their connection and how they are able to make eachother better. The duo of...
8 a.m. ET: Any Bostonians with a diehard craving for live
preseason basketball can finally get their fill when the Celtics host the
Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday. Afterward, hopefully those fans can also get
Kevin Garnett presumably will be back in the starting lineup
after getting the night off Monday in the first game of a back-to-back set.
Whatever other machinations...
