Found May 04, 2013 on Celtics Life:
After the Celtics failed to comeback and win Game 6 last night, Danny Ainge owned up for his teams failures. “I take full responsibility for our team not being as good as New York. That is not Doc’s fault, and that is not KG’s fault or Paul Pierce’s fault or Rajon Rondo’s fault." Before the regular season began, Danny Ainge appeared to have pulled off a series of excellent deals. First off, he stole Jared Sullinger with the 21st pick in the draft. Days later, he made his biggest move of the summer in re-signing Kevin Garnett. After that, he acquired big bodies in Darko Milicic, Jason Collins, and Fab Melo (we all hoped one of these guys could find a rotation spot), then signed NBA champion Jason Terry for depth and late-game production. When it looked like he was done dealing, Ainge snagged Courtney Lee in a sign-and-trade then beat the Lakers to land Leandro Barbosa, giving us a potentially dominant backcourt. While KG had another elite season as an All-Star starter, th...

Jordan Crawford continues taunting Carmelo Anthony, clearly not a representation of the Boston Celtics!

I've found myself questioning why Danny Ainge would bring Jordan Crawford to Boston. The Boston Celtics are a franchise that prides themselves on great players who take responsibility for their actions both on, and off the court. As the Celtics made a decision to stay away from the pompous taunting tirades of their immature opponents, the seldom used Jordan Crawford shows his...

Shaq tries to tackle floating graphic, hilarity ensues (Video)

Inside the NBA analyst Shaquille O'Neal got a little carried away when he tried to tackle a floating graphic for Sprint during Thursday night's Halftime Report. Naturally, that led to hilarious results. Shaq may have to star in his own "Shaqtin' a Fool" segment after this one. This may be the funniest graphic-related post since Spider-Man flew out of...

Rajon Rondo Ringside At Mayweather-Guerrero Fight

Team Money member, Rajon Rondo, sat ringside at the Mayweather-Guerrero fight at the  MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Rondo, who did not attend the Celtics Game 6 loss on Friday as he flew to Nevada for the fight, wore a bedazzled shirt with his face on it as he watched on:

KG May Have Off Season Surgery

 Kevin Garnett missed several games down the stretch to rest a foot that was swollen.  Doc let it slip that he had bone spurs.  He played valiantly in the Celtics first round series against the Knicks.   He averaged 12.7 points and 13.7 rebounds in the post season and played more than 40 minutes in game 6.  There has never been a doubt that KG is tough or that he is a warrior...

Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett Go Out With Bang, If This Indeed Turns Out to Be Their Last Stand

BOSTON — As the Celtics players and coaches staggered off the court, their bid for a couple of historic comebacks having fallen short in a brutal Game 6, Kevin Garnett made a beeline for his coach of six years. Garnett, dripping with perspiration after another of his age-defying performances, exchanged some personal words with Doc Rivers. Afterward, while addressing the media,...

Kevin Garnett is rebounding at a historic rate, and he's getting better as the series goes on

In Game 1 of this series Kevin Garnett scored 8 points and grabbed 9 rebounds.  In Game 2 he posted 12 and 11, Game Three 12 and 17, Game Four 13 and 17, and in Game 5 he had 16 points and 18 boards.  At this pace should we expect a 20/20 game from him tonight? Garnett's 14.4 rebounds per game lead the entire league this postseason.  He's the first Celtic player to pull...

C's fans chant 'Honey Nut Cheerios' at Carmelo

During Game Six of the 2013 Eastern Conference NBA playoff game between the Celtics and Knicks, the fans at Boston’s TD Garden began taunting Carmelo Anthony with a chant of “Honey Nut Cheerios”. This chant is, of course, in reference to comments Kevin Garnett “allegedly” made about Carmelo’s wife, LaLa Vazquez. Good ol’ Boston, keeping it classy. Article found on...

Video: Game 6 Celtics/Knicks hype mix

One of our reader Kevin sent us this mix earlier today. Should get you hyped up for tonight's game (If for some bizarre reason you aren't already). Check out our Video Vault for more Celtics videos and mixes.

Celtics fans chant “Honey Nut Cheerios” at Carmelo Anthony

Back in January, Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett made the term “Honey Nut Cheerios” into a whole new thing after he spent some time trash-talking Carmelo Anthony about his wife, La La Vazquez. Flash-forward to today, Celtics fans decided to serenade Carmelo with those exact words as he made his way to the Knicks bench area during game six of their first-round playoff series...

Boston Celtics rally but come up short, fall to New York Knicks 88-80

I had a recap written, a morose send off to a lost season, but like so many times before the Celtics made me tear the whole thing up. When Avery Bradley stole the ball and cut the lead to four I believed, in that moment I doubted the obituary I had resigned myself to writing and though the C’s came up short I wonder what comes next. When the Knicks’ lead ballooned to twenty I...

Curt Schilling gives Celtics advice on comeback

After the Game 4 win in Boston I thought about it... I even included a little Kevin Millar nugget in my post about the Knicks doubling Pierce, but I knew we still had a huge hole to climb out of. Then we won Game 5 and thought ‘man it's starting to feel more and more like that one time.’ Then Jason Terry talked about it in his post-game interview, quoting Millar. Then Mike...

Thank You C's!

It was a tough 2013 season filled with more injuries and adversity than we would ever have imagined but you all fought through it to the best of your abilities and for that we, Celtics Lifers, THANK YOU! Keep us proud and strong, Celtics!   #BostonStrong!

Three Before the Tip: Celtics-Knicks Game 6 Preview Video

Jared Weiss breaks down the three key points for Game 6 as the Boston Celtics look to make history and force a Game 7 against the New York Knicks.

Can the Celtics recreate Boston sporting history?

Less than a week ago, the Boston Celtics trailed 3-0 in the series against age-old rivalries, the New York Knicks. Instead of submitting to defeat, the Celtics moved a step closer to doing the unthinkable when on Wednesday night they defeated the Knicks 92-86 in Game 5 of their best-of-seven series. Trailing 3-2, the Celtics will show their worth tonight in Boston in Game 6 and if...

The Unlikeliest Hero: How Greg Kite Flew over LA in Game 3 of the 1987 Finals for his Finest Hour

By Cort Reynolds What the Hell Happened to Greg Kite, you ask? It isn’t often when a player can shoot 0 for three from the field in an NBA championship series game and still lay claim to possibly being the MVP of that contest. Or that a third-string center who was a career 49 percent foul shooter, never averaged more than 4.8 points a game in an NBA season and averaged 6...
