Found January 21, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
The Celtics are just so inconsistent.  Doc was right to call them out after this game.   Hopefully that gets them going.  They've proved that when they give the effort they're very good.   I love the Bird/Laimbeer fight.   My favorite part of that was afterwards when they told Bird that Laimbeer said he was just going for the ball and Bird said that he was just giving it to him.  Classic.     That Charlie V tattoo is just plain creepy.  In spite of the loss, the comments were good.  Enjoy!  Charlie V getting real minutes against the Celtics for the first time since the cancer incident. I will predict a KG vs CV multiple-ejection, throw-down. Actually, KG will hard foul CV...and Stuckey will collide with KG.......intentionally. Villanueva and Daye have defined themselves as the enforcers on this team with their flagrants. We'll see if KG is man enough to go near them. When Charlie takes down KG, the Laimbeer/Bird takedown will look like a touch foul. In Laimbeer's mind, that wasn't even a shooting foul. Avery Bradley should be a poll option for who will win the game... He is going to make Singler quit the NBA. Gotta go with Frank. Hes an all-time great. I vote Paul Pierce's wheelchair. Looking forward to seeing Joe D play at the Palace again tonight for the first time in 14 yrs. When I say Joe D, I mean Avery Bradley of course. What a ridiculous comparison...That would be the equivalent of us comparing Drummond to Bill Russell or Moose to Well everything is looking the same building up a good early lead... Bout were bound to blow it Sullinger got like 4 rebs on that play I believe we will win this one. CV will have a very good game. KG is a twerp. You know, Garnett is like...I don't know...a malignancy for the Celts. Sullinger is a beast on the boards despite his lack of athleticism and height Too many Celtics fans in the crowd for my liking. Nice defense by Garnett there Totally clean push to Maxiell’s chest while going for the dunk. Apparently his defense is as clean as his screens Jeff Green looks like he may be an issue So that's the second team he's an issue for Boston being the first one. As these shooting percentages even out... I fully expect a 2nd half collapse Jared Sullinger is second in win shares per 48 among rookies if you discount guys who have played sub-200 minutes. He’s 5th in FG%, 4th in rebounds even though he averages less than 20 minutes a game, and 4th in overall win shares. He’s going to be damn good at the NBA level We kind of own the Celtics, huh? Any play that makes Garnett look like an idiot is worth Sports Center Knight has been playing well. Don't know why he decides to play a good game once every 5 games. Its going to be one of those nights Which one. The one where we blow them out. Or the one where we go up 20 and then choke and lose lol. This old Celtics team can't jump. If you’re willing to get a tattoo of Charlie Villanueva covering your entire bicep, then you should be committed. At least it makes my Michael Curry tattoo look less crazy He looks cancerous to his team and his sleeve Seriously let Courtney Lee hit 2 threes from the corner, then you lose him for an easy lay up, and follow that up with a ****** attempt at fouling Jeff Green. Why the F*** is he on the floor. I can't even pay attention to this game right now My mind simply won’t let go of the fact that some guy in Italy has a Charlie V. Tattoo. I’m still flabbergasted. Nice stat padding rondo This game was so dreamy 10 minutes ago From dream to nightmare. DEEETROIT BASKETBALL That tattoo is still haunting me I hope Rondo picks up his 4th foul soon. Wow refs really helping the Celtics back in this game I cant stand KG Why does rondo always act like a little ***** ? He's a diva. Just realized this is scalabrine calling the Celtics feed ! Retirement came too soon.. Somehow it feels like Rondo should still get an assist for that It was a great pass, not his fault Bradley can’t shoot Pierce with the flop he's 2 for 2 on flops tonight That fast ball has caught up to the bos vets and they are losing steam So we are choosing to play well in odd-numbered quarters. Interesting strategy. That was a blatant offensive foul. Refs didn't want to give Rondo his 5th. Gotta love how the refs determine the game and Stern fines you when you call them out on it. Courtney Lee is having his best game of the year 1/2, still improved your FT percentage Andre. Still better than Dwight Howard Someone needs to tell doc we are shooting about 30% right now If Drummond makes 1 out of 3 he is doing better than our average offense Drummond **** all over Docs strategy I love Frank staying big while Boston goes small. Monroe not intimidated by Garnett Jason Terry sucks he's Terryble. Is there a single play that Garnett doesn't push someone while they're airborn? Man I'd much rather be us than a Celtic's fan right now I think they would agree too. Patriots going down. Celtics next? All the talk about Boston going to be a threat in the playoffs,yea right Rough day for the city of Boston Rondo is only worried about stats IMO. Refs are like ,**** we cant make it obvious Boston,you have to do some of the work. Garnett flop! Monroe is laughing at him Apparently, Kevin Garnett Craves Honey Nut Cheerios Let me just say I have truly hated the Celtics From the Bad Boys days through today, including all the versions in between. Our second Celtics blowout We own the Celtics Take that, Johnny Most… wherever you are! Rondo is out there just trying to get his assist total up. Its pathetic. He had an open lane. Rondo now realizes he needs points for his Trip Doub Dude has 9 turnovers! 9!!!!!!! Rondo needs a TO, basket and a reb for a quadruple double :rolfl: Damn this Celtics team is sad... I think the Celtics forgot its game night [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Kevin Garnett is frustrated with his play, says he needs to find more ways to help the team

Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...

Kevin Garnett called a cheap shot artist by Joakim Noah

Kevin Garnett will never be misunderstood as a nice guy. The NBA is full of personalities that are competitive yet not capable of the misdeeds that Garnett is capable of. Joakim Noah is not exactly a pillar of virtue either. His history does not reflect someone who is afraid to sneak in a low-blow from time [...] [[ This is a content summary only.

Celtics Player Grades vs Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons beat the Boston Celtics 103-88 ESPN Boxscore CelticsLife Game Recap Player Grades: Kevin Garnett: 16 Points, 7 Rebounds Garnett had a decent game tonight, from the boxscore stats, but his defense was pretty bad.

Carmelo Anthony Says There’s Nothing ‘Left Over’ With Kevin Garnett, Should Be ‘Fun Game’ Against Celtics

Carmelo Anthony is expecting some fun. Has anyone checked to see what Kevin Garnett plans on bringing Thursday night? In their first game since Garnett got Anthony all worked up to the point of chasing him to the locker room and team bus after the game, the Knicks and Celtics will be facing each other Thursday night in Boston. But Anthony says he’s not expecting anything to spill...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Pistons 1/20

The Celtics again didn't play well against the Pistons and lost a game they deserved to lose. They came out with a terrible effort that made them fall behind by as many as 11. They never recovered from their horrible first quarter and lost with a fight. They came back to tie it late in the first half but it wasn't enough. During the third quarter, the Pistons started hitting...

Carmelo ready for trash-talk rematch

Carmelo Anthony says he just wants a victory in Boston and has moved on from the trash-talking incident with Celtics forward Kevin Garnett that eventually got him suspended one game. “I don’t care what message I sent to him,’’

Comments from the Other Side - Cavs 1/22

I'm not sure what to think about this team any more. They showed during the win streak that they can play the right way. But then they don't. Not even after Doc called them out. They have to get it together, starting with the defense.   This losing stuff is getting old.  I want a W because I despise everything Buh-stun. Will be interesting to see how Waiters plays...

Carmelo Anthony Says He Hasn’t Thought About KG Honey Nut Cheerios Comment

  Before the Manti Te’o fake girlfriend scandal broke last week, the hot topic was Honey Nut Cheerios and the Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett on-court turned off-court altercation. The two are scheduled to meet again in Boston tomorrow night and Anthony, who says he’s no longer concerned about the Cheerio debacle, does want to return the favor by winning. “I just want to...

“The locker room has become a playhouse…”

After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room. The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful...
