BEST OF MAXIM

The Celtics are just beginning the "daunting" part of their schedule, or as I like to call it, the "fun" part.
Rajon Rondo started off April with a bang. His 18th career triple double was only fooling Miami yesterday as he notched 16 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists with only 2 turnovers.
Rondo has just been on a tear since the All-star break, consistently...
"You can see, moving around, he's just not ready to play. He literally can't play." -- Rivers on Allen.

That is not very encouraging news as Ray Allen misses yet another game due to his ankle issues.
At this point, I'm not sure whether I should be encouraged that he is constantly a game time decision or...
If my calculations are correct, Pierce averaged 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals this week, while being overlooked by fans in favor of heaping praise on Kevin Garnett and/or Rajon Rondo approximately 15,398,387 times. (Note: Don’t take that as an insult to KG or Rondo. Both deserve all the praise they’ve gotten, just like Pierce deserves a lot more praise...
Watch how he darts into the paint. How his teammates suddenly find themselves open for easy looks. How his team’s offense occasionally transforms from the league’s 25th-most efficient unit into a beautiful wave of uncontested jump shots and daring dashes to the hoop.Check how Rajon Rondo sometimes takes the Boston Celtics and lifts them to a level they couldn’t achieve without...
I’ll admit. I was nervous. Having the #2-seed in the Eastern Conference coming to play this older Celtics squad made me a bit queasy. Then I remembered that the game was at the Garden and it was a nationally-televised game, also known as Rajon Rondo’s time to shine. The C’s point guard puts up ridiculous numbers in nationally-televised Celtics games at the Garden, and yesterday...
In the video above, Paul Pierce sat down with Ahmad Rashad and reflected on his career, his nickname, getting drafted by the Celtics as a Lakers fan, passing Larry Bird on the Celtics' all-time scoring list, the pressure to win another title, and more.

WALTHAM, Mass. -- The Celtics' first practice in a month came at an opportune time for Ray Allen, who was able to test his sore right ankle before his imminent return to game action. Allen fully participated in Tuesday's practice at the Celtics training facility, and the team declared him ready to play for Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs barring any flare...

Ray Allen is no longer a game-time decision according to Sean Grande of WEEI -- he will not play today against the Miami Heat.
Ray Allen out again today. (Try and act surprised when others tweet it later). Celtics-Heat together again, 3pm WEEI/http://t.co/JZzYNPmk— Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) April 1, 2012

Celtics Dancer Profiles 2012 (Part 1)
The General Manager position for the Trailblazers has been open since November, and now it seems to look like the search has been narrowed to two big names. Danny Ainge and Steve Kerr are the names that have popped up for the position, and I think personally Ainge would be a better hire than Kerr. Ainge would help rebuild Rip City through the draft and free agency the same way he...
