Actor/Comedian Chris Tucker stopped by the Garden today for the Celtics open practice. Tucker is in town for comedy show at the Wilbur tonight. Tucker sat courtside with Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca. He was also wearing a fresh pair Rogue Green Nike Durant KD IV’s. Tucker appeared to have a great time. He interacted with fans through out the practice. I swear I heard him yell “Daaaaammmmmnnnnnnn!!!” like Smokey from Friday when Jeff Green threw down a monster dunk. Check out Chris Tucker tonight at the Wilbur in Boston.

For the first time in team history, it seems the Boston Celtics will have two legitimate candidates for NBA Sixth Man of the Year in Jason Terry (a former winner) and Jeff Green. Both will come off the bench, both will get plenty of minutes, and both will seemingly get some votes. But who has the upper hand in this battle?
Jeff Green looks like he will have a career year. Hes shooting...
Jared Sullinger checks in from Miami before the Boston Celtics take on the Heat tomorrow night, discussing how the Celtics might match up with the Heat when the play small, and addressinf how he doesn't feel like a Rookie since KG has prepared him by always talking to him.

This audio of Kevin Garnett speaking with Sean Grande, the radio voice of the Boston Celtics, is from Media Day 2012. It aired a couple of weeks ago during halftime of a C’s preseason game. In it, KG pulls no punches as he speaks about Danny’s new acquisitions and his love for the city of Boston.
The best part of the interview however is when Ticket talks about the legendary...
The quick and obvious answer is "no." But, I think there are a few trends we can identify from the Celtics exhibition numbers that very well may carry over into the regular season:
Is Sullinger the C's best rebounder?
- Jared Sullinger led the team in rebounds, averaging 7 per game. It wouldn't surprise me to see Sullinger finish the year as the C' leading...
In and Insider article, Mark Stein posted his top five potent duos in the NBA. There are the ones that you might expect. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James lesd the list. He lists Dwight Howard with any one of 3 other Lakers (Kobe, Nash, or Gasol) as his second choice. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are the third, which kind of surprised me. Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah came in 4th...
The Boston Celtics hold plenty of respect for the Miami Heat, maybe even to the point of being obsessed. The Celtics talk about their Eastern Conference rival every day. Doc Rivers ended open practice on Sunday by starting a “Beat the Heat” chant. When Courtney Lee and Jason Terry arrived at the team’s practice facilities in Waltham, they were surprised to see tape of last...
Video mix by the green man himself, ScarryLarry. A lot of old Rondo highlights, but good ones nonetheless. Music by Common (back when he was at his best). Less than 2 days until opening night.
COLUMBIA, Md. — If I told you that only four players have registered at least ten triple doubles in the playoffs, that probably wouldn’t surprise you. If I told you that Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd, and Larry Bird are on the list, that probably wouldn’t surprise you either. The fourth? No, it’s not Oscar Robertson, [...]

Who can forget last year's Eastern Conference Finals Game 6 memorable show of class and support for the lads in green by the green-teamers. Doc had already pulled the 'Big Three' and the third-string unit was still playing disciplined basketball in spite of the circumstances.
You can see the emotional affect it had on the whole team. Kevin Garnett cited it as The...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Doc Rivers never had any problem
convincing his players to share the ball last season, as evidenced by the
Celtics' league-leading assist percentage. When the passing game would break
down -- which was more often than Rivers liked -- the difficulty was a problem
of execution, rather than intent.
Almost to a man, last year's Celtics...
