BEST OF MAXIM
Doc Rivers spoke to the media before the Celtics-Kings game yesterday and touched on a number of topics. One was the status of Paul Pierce’s knee.
“He’ll be fine,” Doc said. ”With his injury, he had to rest it. He should not have been playing, to be healthy. The only way to be healthy is rest. So, he’ll be fine.”
It’s just amazing to think at what kind...
We've all, including Greg Stiemsma himself, have been waiting for Minnesota to get their offers all straight and make an offer to the Celtics' center. Now we learn from ESPN Boston that Greg has gotten an offer that is larger than the qualifying offer of $1.05 million tendered by the Celtics.
Restricted free agent center Greg Stiemsma has received an offer from a new...
The rebuilding process between championships took more than two decades the last time the Celtics did it. With their moves this offseason, the Celtics have set themselves up for a much shorter drought, if it can even be called that. One of the hardest things for an NBA executive to do is to make his team younger while staying in championship contention. With the Celtics' anticipated...
The Celtics’ hope to find a quality sharp-shooting two guard to help replace Ray Allen and fill in for Avery Bradley as he recovers from shoulder surgery just got a little bleaker as two of Danny Ainge’s top free agent targets recently came off the market for the C’s. On Monday night OJ Mayo, [...]
We heard recently that Rondo was in Paris for the World Basketball Festival here's a short interview he gave with the french media.
Notably Rondo thinks this team will have good chemistry. He seems excited that Jason Terry is on the team and that a lot of players from last year are returning.
I also thought Rondo's response was funny when the french reporter asked if...
Watch this video and tell me you aren't excited about having Courtney Lee on the Celtics? Rondo will bring out the best in his game. Got to give Ainge and Doc credit on this one.

“I had a fantastic time in Boston, an unbelievable sports town, fans and organization. But it wasn’t necessarily the best fit basketball wise. Your comfort level is everything.
Sometimes when you’re asked not to worry about some of the stronger parts of your game, which is scoring, and only [focus on] defense, that’s difficult to do.”
Yeah, and you were also...

It’s been a while since I posted some pics & GIFs. Fortunately, my buddy HTT has put together a few from last night’s C’s-Bulls Summer League game in Vegas. The Celtics’ squad won again, 79-74 behind E’Twaun Moore’s 25 points. Here are a few GIFs from the game..
Courtney Lee is close to joining the Celtics
The Celtics needed one more veteran shooting guard to round out their roster and it looks as if they got him. They are currently finalizing a deal with the Houston Rockets to acquire Courtney Lee for JuJuan Johnson, E’Twaun Moore and Sean Williams in addition to a second round pick.
I like this deal because the Celtics barely gave up...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
It’s not like the Celtics don’t want to wrap up their roster renovation, it’s just that free agent guard Courtney Lee wisely listened to the advice of his agent, Dan Fegan, who told him to be patient...
DON'T LET GO
Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly felt "deceived" by Jeremy Lin who opted to sign with the Rockets and leave New York.
Earlier on Wednesday Jeremy Lin –now of the Houston Rockets — opened up about free agency and how he went from the height of Lin-sanity to someone who fell from the graces of James Dolan. And in this frank interview with Sports Illustrated he conveyed his feelings of wanting to be in New York, that was preference, [...]

Further healing themselves from the loss of Ray Allen, the Celtics stole sharpshooting wing Courtney Lee from the Houston Rockets on Thursday, further enhancing the profile on what has been a successful summer.
More than 150 media members packed the Houston Rockets' practice court to be on hand for the introduction of Jeremy Lin as a member of the Rockets. The Houston Chronicle notes that's more media than attended the introductory press conferences for either Roger Clemens or Andy Pettitte when those two joined the Houston Astros.
