It's Monday, so that means ESPN's weekly Marc Stein NBA power rankings are out. In this edition the 11-9 Celtics find themselves at #14. Despite two easy wins, and just a single one-point OT loss on the road, Boston falls a spot from #13 last week. I still don't understand Stein's infatuation with the 10-9 Bucks, who again rank several places ahead of the C's at #11. But at least he's finally got the Celts ahead of the Lakers, who at 9-12 have slipped all the way to #15 after beginning the year at #2. Miami also drops to a season low #6 this week.
And that's an original Bob Cousy jersey on the right, the last Celtic to wear #14.

Clearly Jason Terry's presence is having an effect on Pierce. Terry had this done shortly after signing with Boston:

Here's the latest installment of Boston Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger's video blog.
The NBA announced today that Chris Wilcox was fined $25,000 for making an obscene gesture toward fans during Friday's loss in Philadelphia. From ESPN:
During a fourth-quarter timeout, Wilcox gave an in-house television camera broadcasting on the video board the middle finger when a "Kiss Cam" segment ended with a shot of him and teammate Jared Sullinger sitting...
Still haven’t gotten that Boston Celtics fan in your life the perfect piece of memorabilia for the holidays? Do you have a spare $20,000 to throw around? Then you may just be in luck. Robert Parish is selling the championship ring he won with the Boston Celtics and as of right now the current bid [...]
Before meeting the Boston Celtics Saturday night, one day after beating them by one point in overtime, Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins said his team should be better-prepared to meet for the second time in as many nights.Collins pointed out the specific amount of minutes the Celtics big names have played, using their long careers as basis for his theory: “There’s no reason...

Boston Celtics power forward Chris Wilcox flipped off the “Kiss Cam” in Friday’s 95-94 loss against the Philadelphia 76ers. In result, Wilcox was fined $25,000 due to his actions.

Apparently the #sixers Kiss Cam zeroed in on Wilcox and Jared Sullinger and Wilcox put up his hand to block the camera. Some claim...
Celtics (20-6) vs. Cavaliers (14-16)
December 8, 1979
The Cavaliers were thrilled to find the Celtics on the second night of a back-to-back and took it to former coach Bill Fitch, 116-100.
An exquisite performance from Larry Bird went to waste. Bird set a new high by compiling 32 points, 18 rebounds, and five assists. Cedric Maxwell added 11 boards and 18...
8 a.m. ET: The Celtics will play a great game on Wednesday, as will their opponent, the Mavericks. Or maybe only one team will play well. Or maybe neither. Nobody can really tell anymore with these two teams.
The Celtics and the Mavericks each made some interesting moves during the offseason. While the Celtics went all-out with depth to put them in position to contend for the next...
The Hawks Josh Smith took home the East's "Player of the Week" honors (Blake Griffin won for the Western Conference) by putting up 21 points and 12 rebounds per game, while also leading Atlanta to a 3-0 record. Rajon Rondo was nominated for the award after averaging 13.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 12 assists over 3 games, as well as posting one historic triple double...
Apparently Doc Rivers was too busy being the head coach of the Boston Celtics to teach his son some valuable lessons in life.
Doc's son Austin Rivers, who plays guard for the New Orleans Hornets (soon to be Pelicans?) has a tough time shopping for groceries, and apparently can't parallel park. If we can take anything from this video it may be showing us that the driving...
If lining up against the toughest competition in the NBA is the best way of gauging one’s ability, then the Boston Celtics are up against a heck of a measuring stick this Saturday. Bet on the NBA regular season at its finest.
On the road against the San Antonio Spurs, the veteran C’s will hope to prove that they’re still capable of doing damage across not only the Eastern Conference...
Maybe Jason Terry's play last season for the Dallas Mavericks against the Boston Celtics is a big reason why he's wearing green and white now.
Terry will face the Mavericks for the first time since joining the Celtics in Wednesday night's matchup in Boston.
Dallas (11-10) has won four straight over Boston (11-9), with Dirk Nowitzki leading the way with 24.0 points per...
Rajon Rondo was also on the sideline wearing a Wes Welker jersey. A pretty awesome way for some of the Celtics to spend their day off. For more on the Patriots, visit nePatriotsLife.com
