Found March 16, 2012 on Celtics Town:
Just as the Boston Celtics desperately search for interior help, Chris Johnson — who you might remember from his short stint in Boston last season — hit the free agent market after being bought by the Portland Trail Blazers.ESPN’s Chris Forsberg mentions that the Celtics might want to go after Johnson:Would the Celtics be interested in Johnson? There’s certainly a value in a 26-year-old with some familiarity of your system, particularly when you’re just looking for someone to eat minutes over the next 45 days. But both coach Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge preached patience in the process of adding another big man, suggesting they’ll likely take some time to see who emerges in the buyout market as teams shuffle their rosters before next Friday’s playoff eligibility waiver deadline.If the Celtics end up with multiple open spots on their roster — depending on how they proceed with both Chris Wilcox and Jermaine O’Neal — it seems reasonable that Boston could eye Johnson. But it would also...

Just Us

Larry Bird is not walking through that door. Jeff Green is not walking through that door. Hell, Jermaine O'neal and Chris Wilcox are not either for the rest of this season. Chris Kaman? Nope, not him either. The point? There will be no saviors coming to Boston this season. (excuse the overused door references) Yes, Danny Ainge made calls and took calls to get help for the...

Enemy Chatter: Celtics looked cemented to the floor

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Sacramento. Thornton was absolutely scorching. So many of his baskets came on catch-and-shoot opportunities where the ball was barely in his hands. But as soon as he let go, you felt like it was money. ...

Celtics aren't lucky on St Patrick's Day losing to the Nuggets 98-91

Early season first half woes have seemed come back.  Struggling to score in the first half has led to awful results for Boston, as of late, as they lost another game tonight.  This time the Denver Nuggets walked away with a 98-91 victory at the Pepsi Center. Trying to play a different style of basketball never works.  This is what happened in Sacramento and is continuing...

Would you rather watch Gasol or Rondo?

There has been a lot of trade talk recently and quite frankly I'm tired of it. From a business decision maybe some of these crazy ideas Ainge has in his head make sense. From a real person with a heart, it doesn't. Do the Celtics need a big man? Of course they do. But I'd rather see us go out in the second round with Rondo then go out in the second round with Gasol...
