Found February 14, 2013 on Celtics Life:
According to CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely, the Celtics have reached out to free agent guard Jannero Pargo. Pargo's agent Mark Bartelstein said that there is mutual interest, but that both sides are keeping their options open. From Blakely's article. "Yes, we have talked," Pargo's agent, Mark Bartelstein, told CSNNE.com. "But I know Danny (Ainge, Boston's president of Basketball Operations) is weighing a lot of different options right now, looking for what works best for them. We're doing the same thing, too." ... It's clear that while the C's need talent in the worst way, there is a certain sense of urgency for them to add another player in the backcourt. If Boston decides to pick up a guard via free agency, Pargo would easily be on the Celtics' short list. The 6-foot-1 guard recently completed a second, 10-day stint with the Atlanta Hawks and has appeared in 14 games this season -- seven with Atlanta and seven with the Wash...

Kevin Garnett plays point guard?

Who knew KG still (or ever) had this kind of handle? As the Celtics were starting their dramatic 4th quarter rally against the Bulls last night, Kevin Garnett delivered what for me was his most entertaining and impressive highlight of the season.  Garnett decided he was going to be the point guard. He held the ball near half court, directed traffic, and called out a play; just...

Your Morning Dump… Where borders will not restrain Danny Ainge’s PG search

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “All three of them are real blows to us,” said Ainge. “First of all, we lose our star player and then Jared and then Barbosa. That’s devastating. We’re short on guards now, and we have to bring someone...

Paul Pierce offers to call your Valentine

Paul Pierce is just awesome at life. Not only is the guy one of the greatest Celtics of all time, but now he is also helping out his fellow Celtic fans in the love department. "Pierce tweeted his gift suggestion, a “Celeb Call” from none other than himself." Valentines Day is an awkward holiday. Guys feel a lot of pressure to go all out because those are the expectations...

Is the Celtic's Kevin Garnett retiring?

Kevin Garnett has been hinting at retirement for a number of years now.  He's still a productive player in the league, but his skills have diminished over the years.  Because of this, Garnett may be leaning toward retirement.  At least we are led to believe that based on the Boston Celtics' star's comments.Garnett said this All-Star Game in Houston would be his last...

Kevin Garnett shoots down retirement chatter, talks about commitment to Celtics

Less than 48 hours ago Kevin Garnett sent Celtics fans, the media, and the twitterverse into panic mode when he said that this year's All-Star game would be his last, and seemed to hint at retirement. Personally I never gave a ton of credence to the comments considering A. KG's impossible to read, he never gives direct answers and B. Comments made after a grueling stretch...

Jared Sullinger Limited to Sitting in Recliner, Playing Video Games As He Recovers From Back Surgery

BOSTON — Jared Sullinger is spending his days lounging around, and it is terrible. The rookie forward made an appearance at TD Garden on Wednesday and expounded on his recovery from back surgery, which he underwent two weeks ago. Upbeat but clearly itching to play, Sullinger described a recovery that, so far, seems pretty boring. Sullinger cannot work out or engage in any physical...

Kevin Garnett Says This is ‘Definitely’ His Last All-Star Game, But Meaning is Vague

BOSTON — Maybe it was a slip of the tongue or a subtly placed hint, but Kevin Garnett left quite a few reporters scratching their heads on Wednesday. After the Celtics closed out the first half of the regular season with a victory over the Bulls, Garnett talked about the fatigue he felt after playing three games in four days and how the Celtics have managed to win eight of their...

Video: Celtics fan Usain Bolt shares his admiration for Kevin Garnett

I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man. Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.

Boston Celtics: They Must Trade For A Point Guard Now.

With Leandro Barbosa joining Rajon Rondo out of the lineup with a torn ACL, the Boston Celtics need to trade for a point guard, if they want to have any chance of making any noise this season. They now do not have a single point guard on the roster and must fix this immediately. However, they do not have much to offer besides future first and second round picks and 2012 first round...

Will Houston really be Kevin Garnett's final All-Star Game?

Kevin Garnett has always been one to talk a lot of junk on the floor over the course of his 18-year career between Minnesota and Boston. But off of the court it is a different story.  Except this time around, the story surrounding Garnett has everyone in Boston mystified if the “Big Ticket” really is set to play his last All-Star Game on Sunday in Houston. This will...

Rajon Rondo, Dwight Howard Trade More Than Far-Fetched, But Fun to Think About

OK, Internet. This is your time. Less than one full week remains before the NBA trade deadline, and now is the time when all semblance of sanity flies out of the window. So-called “anonymous sources” are about to work overtime. Even by the usual crazy standards of trade deadline season, though, Friday’s report that the Celtics and Lakers had engaged in preliminary talks for...

Smith's 30 points leads Hawks past Magic

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have had trouble at times playing consistently against struggling teams. They chose a great time to jettison a bad habit. Josh Smith had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Al Horford added 26 points and 12 rebounds as the Hawks blew past the Orlando Magic 108-76 on Wednesday night. The Hawks led by as many as 38 points and decimated the Magic...
