Anderson Varejao is one of the polarizing players, you love when he plays for your team but hate when he plays for the other guys. I personally am of the latter; I could never stand the guy. Just the way the Side-Show-Bob-look-alike plays grinds my gears and when Benedict LeBron was still in Cleveland, they were a match made in heaven. The flopping, the whining, the cheap plays… they were perfect. But now LeBron’s in Miami, the Cavs are in the basement of the Eastern Conference at 4-14 with Varejao leading the NBA in rebounding, and the Celtics can’t rebound to save their lives. I hate to say it, but now Side-Show Bob is a perfect fit for the Green.
Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Tribune articulated in recent post that Varejao could be on the move this season and that OKC could be a good dance partner:
The Anderson Varejao trade talk will heat up again, especially with the incredible Cavalier leading the NBA in rebounding -- by far -- at 14.7 per game. And...

Rajon Rondo returned from his two game suspension yesterday, but didn’t speak… thus raising the anticipation for his gripping comments today about his absence from the team.
“I went to Mexico, couple days, watched the games,” Rondo deadpanned in his first meeting with reporters since last Thursday. “It was cool.”
And thus began the song and dance between Rondo and the...
On the pregame show, CSNNE is reporting that Avery Bradley is set to begin practicing with the team in 7-10 days. This fits with the timetable that he gave earlier in the season that put him back practicing in mid-December. He will need to get his conditioning back and get back into game shape and expects to return to the court for games just after the New Year.

The Celtics started aggressively, but faded down the stretch of the second quarter to lull us all into believing we were in for another frustrating dog fight.
But they took control of the game in the second half to push their lead up as high as 17 before settling for a 104-94 win. The starters, led by Kevin Garnett, demolished the Timberwolves… scoring 82 of the Celtics 104 points...
Is it better to play poorly and win or to play well and lose? The Cleveland Cavaliers (4-14, 13th in the East) have lost quite a few games I’m not sure they deserved to lose this season. The Cavaliers are going through something of an identity crisis at the moment. Or they are a pretty good bad team, or a pretty bad good team?
One of the games they most certainly deserved to lose...

The Boston Celtics head into the first full week of December with a record of 9 wins and 8 losses. Certainly, they aren’t playing up to expectations but it’s early and heck, it could be a lot worse; they could be the Lakers who are sitting on an 8-9 record with 12 home games already [...]
Minnesota's past and future
The Boston Celtics come into this game 9-8 and looking for answers. After blowing a huge lead against the Milwaukee Bucks, let's hope we can rebound.
They play the Minnesota Timbervolves today in the "Kevin Garnett/Greg Stiemsma Bowl". If i recall, since we have had Kevin Garnett, we have not lost at home to these Wolves.

We all know the situation… Darko’s departure has left the Celtics with an open spot, and they are considering adding a big man to help their glaring need for some productive height that can help defend the rim and maybe… possibly… grab a freakin’ rebound.
Everyone keeps bringing up Kenyon Martin’s name…
Well… everyone except the Celtics.

Wolves v. Celtics Preview
Line: Boston by 6. Over/Under 190. On the site I go to, the public is picking Boston -6, the experts are leaning toward Minnesota +6, and the O/U is split right down the middle (Extra gambling nugget: The Wolves are 4-0 against the spread when 5+ point underdogs this season).

More than 20 months later after the infamous trade that sent Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City we are still suffering the effects of a bold wrong move.
Before anyone goes to the stats and refers to Perk´s numbers (5.1 points, 5.0 rebounds this season) and explains to all of us how meaningless they are and how wrong the Thunder were in giving him a $8,300,531 salary for this season...
