Green had been diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm shortly before training camp, and he would be sidelined the entire season. Chris Wilcox was in uniform on that Christmas Day in New York, but his season would also be cut short by a heart abnormality. In the months that followed, the two free agents formed a bond that contributed...

Stronger case for Sixth Man of the Year: Terry or Green?

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.

Celtics Should Just Concede Rest of Season

In the world of sports talk radio – a world which I am becoming more and more disillusioned with – Tuesday night’s Celtics loss to Miami is reviewed in terms of absolutes.
