What the Hell Happened to...Chris Herren?

By the time I got traded (to the Celtics), I was happy for all the wrong reasons.  I wasn't happy because I was back home and had grown up idolizing the Celtics.  I was happy because I was back home and I knew where to get drugs. Weed, coke, crystal meth.  Alcohol and ecstasy.  Heroin and oxycontin.  Chris Herren’s been there and done that.  And he’s not afraid to...

GreenLight Madness: Sweet Sixteen – Seed #5 vs Seed #12

Avery Bradley was once afraid to participate in Celtics practices nevermind actual games.  He was afraid of guys like KG yelling at him for messing up but that was last year.  AB burst out on the scene this year highlighted with his stifling defense.  He proved he wasn’t afraid of anyone, which is highlighted in his ownage of DWade on the block below.  He’s also not afraid...

Your Morning Dump… Could the Celtics be interested in Kenyon Martin?

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. Meanwhile, the player who Barnes would essentially be replacing, Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He’s the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any...

Rajon Rondo’s Life Is Damn Fun

Rondo just completed an insane media tour across the globe and he pretty much ended it yesterday in Bristol, Connecticut, home of SportsCenter.
