Celtics take their Dunking Talents to Lob City

The LA Clippers are one of the most entertaining teams in the NBA and for good reason.  They dunk.  A lot.  Chris Paul tosses a ton of alley-oops to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and it's amazing to watch.  Well the OG Celtics had a few nice dunks of their own at Lob City.  Check out the video below for some nice dunks including: Avery Bradley's slashing one-hander...

But when I asked Pierce if he wanted to end his career as a Celtic, there wasn't much passion in his response. It's probably a cautionary reflex that comes with being in the NBA long enough to see every...

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...
