Found October 19, 2012 on Celtics Life:
Nets fans sound a bit different than they did after their team blew out the Celtics.  Lots of hate for Deron Williams.  When fans are longing to have Gerald Green back, you know there are problems.  Of course there are the wheelchair comments after Pierce came up limping after he was shoved into the photographers by Joe Johnson.  Funny, he didn't seem to have that mean streak on the Hawks.  Not sure why they hate Courtney Lee so much but they do.   Enjoy today's comments.... Brook will dominate! Triple double for Brook…Nets by 7 After we will blow C’s away, I want Regie to kiss up to nets( most notorious hater) I see some Celtic fans Winning feels weird (even in preseason) Its the first time I have ever watched a winning team in any sport Hump's got a big advantage vs Sullinger Celtics are playing like this is G7 of the Finals.

Paul Pierce the Boston Celtics Legend

When stumbling upon this photo today, it immediately invoked feeling for me that had been reserved for one man;  a basketball legend that wore green, two decades earlier. A similar photo of Larry Bird was published in late 1989 to dawn the cover of Sports Illustrated. This photo was to commemorate the Legend’s return to basketball from season-ending injury. [...]

Celtics Injury News: Paul Pierce, Brandon Bass

The Boston Celtics have a new look to them.  Sure, there are some familiar faces, but this is not the team with the original big three - the big three that started the trend of players joining up in hopes of winning a championship.  This is a team minus Ray Allen, a key part of the championship the Celtics did win in 2008.  Here's an update on some key players on the current...

Pierce serves Nets reality check

That beautiful new Brooklyn arena and those slick black uniforms are getting the Nets plenty of attention. The Boston Celtics sure noticed, and they delivered a reminder Thursday night that the road to the Atlantic Division title doesn't run through Atlantic Avenue just yet. Paul Pierce scored 18 points despite briefly leaving with an ankle injury, and the Celtics spoiled the...

Courtney Lee Could Be Rajon Rondo's Dream Come True and Other Impressions From Celtics' Win Over Nets

Courtney Lee has all the tools. He can shoot, jump, run, dribble and defend. With all those skills, the biggest question is why the 27-year-old Western Kentucky product is on his fourth team in five NBA seasons. A quick rundown of the point guards Lee has played with in his career may help explain why. Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris, Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic...

NBA 2012-13 preseason: The best players in the Atlantic Division

As part of my NBA preseason rankings I will be ranking the best players by position in each division. Here’s the Atlantic division.PG Rajon Rondo- Boston Celtics- 11.9 pts. 11.7 ast. His offensive game has expanded immensely since coming into the NBA. His jump shot isn’t great, but much more efficient than it used to be. He’s also one of the best passers in the game, and I...

Comments From the Other Side - Nets 10/18

Nets fans sound a bit different than they did after their team blew out the Celtics.  Lots of hate for Deron Williams.  When fans are longing to have Gerald Green back, you know there are problems.  Of course there are the wheelchair comments after Pierce came up limping after he was shoved into the photographers by Joe Johnson.  Funny, he didn't seem to have that mean streak...

Gerald Green ready to prove himself

Gerald Green has moved around a lot during his professional career. He entered the league in 2005, one of the last players to come straight out of high school, and he is now with his sixth NBA team, not to mention the two years he spent overseas. Green’s most notable accomplishment was winning the Slam Dunk Contest in 2007 (remember the cupcake dunk?), but he wants to prove he...

Celtics 115, Nets 85

Paul Pierce scored 18 points despite briefly leaving with an ankle injury, and the Boston Celtics spoiled the Brooklyn Nets' return to national TV with a 115-85 exhibition victory Thursday night. Courtney Lee also had 18 for the Celtics in a rematch of the Nets' 97-96 victory in Boston two nights earlier. The Nets rallied to pull that one out even while resting their starters...

Celtics Get Payback Win over Knicks 109-98

We got a look at the future tonight and it was fun. Doc sat KG, Pierce to rest them since they have another game tomorrow night and the young guys got a lot of run in this game. Doc started Rondo, Lee, Green, Sully and Collins with Melo, Terry, Kurz, Downs, and Joseph playing off the bench. The Knicks also sat their stars with Melo, Amare and Chandler all sitting this one out...

It's a Fast Break!

What I have enjoyed the most this preseason is watching the Celtics fast breaks. For the first time, Rondo has multiple options on the break instead of getting the ball up court quickly and then having to dribble around while he waits for the rest of the team to get in place. The play above has Paul Pierce running ahead and getting the hoop. More than likely, he won't be...

Recap: Celtics remind Nets that they’re still the Nets

The Brooklyn Nets wanted this game. We knew that when Avery Johnson rested his starters on Tuesday night. The new look Nets were on national television in their new arena against the Celtics. How did Brooklyn respond? They got steamrolled. The Celtics were aggressive on both ends of the floor and dominated this game from start to finish. The final was 115-85. Doc Rivers trotted out...
