Boston Celtics, I don’t even know you anymore.Back above .500? Blowing out a cellar-dweller? Not letting the Nets back in the game after an 18-point halftime lead? Rajon Rondo talking to reporters shortly after the game?I could get used to aggressive, double-double machine Kevin Garnett again, or 35 team assists (13 from the Kentucky cancer, mind you). Of course, I shouldn’t. The Celtics will probably will get blown out on national television against the Knicks on Sunday and Chris Broussard and Steven A. Smith will report “sources” that Danny Ainge is in exploratory trade talks regarding Jeremy Lin and Rajon Rondo. Oh well, I’ll enjoy this one tonight.P.S. How did Danny Ainge let Gerald Green get away!! All he needed was some time and good coaching!! Did you see that alley oop??

Does the position bother you? Playing 5? Playing 4? Does that effect you at all? How do you approach that? Kevin Garnett: I don’t like it. I’m a four. It is what it is. I’ll be whatever this team needs me to be… other than the cheerleader… Those were KG’s words, caught by CLNS – [...]
