D.J. White is unlikely to be the difference between whether or not the Celtics win it all this season, so the Celtics’ move to sign the fifth-year pro out of Indiana to what was termed a “multi-year” deal on Wednesday may seem like simple housekeeping. White did not step foot on the court during the Celtics’ close loss to the Heat on Monday, and he has clocked in for a total of 27 minutes in his 20-day stint with in Boston.
Even so, retaining White through the end of the season is a quiet, sensible move. For now, he provides another body to a bench that has been thinned by three season-ending injuries and the recent injury/illness to Kevin Garnett. His playing time is likely to be even more sparse as Celtics coach Doc Rivers narrows his rotation in preparation for the playoffs, but at least he ensures Rivers will not be caught without anybody to send into the game if Garnett, Brandon Bass and Chris Wilcox all get struck with foul trouble or freak injuries simultaneously.
As for next...

The Celtics announced today that they have signed forward D.J. White to a multi-year contract.

From the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn:
Doc says he wants to keep the team continuity and the club will sign Shavlik Randolph for rest of the season #celtics

I very much agree with Doc's logic here. For the most part who the 11th or 12th guy on the roster is doesn't really matter, it's highly unlikely he'll play...
"That's like taking away from a pitcher that...throws a no-hitter. Obviously he's not going to be able to throw a no-hitter every time, and then the next outing he goes out and gives up six runs and you say, 'Which guy is he? -Danny Ainge on Jeff Green's performance last night

In Boston and all over the country, people have taken notice of the Celtics’ fantastic play without their All Star point guard, Rajon Rondo. Now many are wondering if they are a better team without him. This is not true, as rest of the team has simply stepped up into bigger roles to try and make up for the loss of Rondo. But after proving that they can win without him, should they...
Jason Terry is one of the main reasons, LeBron only has only one ring and not two, so I am not surprised he took pleasure in taking Terry’s soul.
I am a little surprised he publicly admitted it, but little by little, the villain in LeBron is starting to come out.
“It was one of my better ones,” James said. “And the fact that it happened to J.T. made it even that much sweeter...
Well, that was awkward.
Just two days after the world could not stop singing the Celtics’ praises after a loss, of all things, the green team went out Wednesday and laid an egg in the second half in the Big Easy. With the aid of a putrid third quarter, in which they shot 5-for-18 and mustered all of 12 points, the Celtics squandered a comfortable lead for the second time in two...
GOT YOUR BACK
Mark Cuban defended his former player, Jason Terry, who has been ridiculed for being fiercely dunked on by LeBron James.
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett is in the lineup for Wednesday night's game against the New Orleans Hornets.
The 6-foot-11 Garnett had been sidelined for two games by a left thigh injury and the flu. Boston split the two games, losing to streaking Miami on in the final seconds Monday night.
Garnett is averaging 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds this season.
Well, the Celtics just continue to amaze us with their effort. Tonight, they blew a double-digit halftime lead and lost at the buzzer to the future-Pelicans. I'm fed up. No more defending these losers. They need to start doing their jobs.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the fact that the C's led by 3 with just under a minute left. How do you blow that lead to the Hornets? The...
Here's the video coverage from Paul Pierce's charity bowling tournament from last week.

The Celtics decided to keep Shavlik Randolph to maintain their depth frontcourt and continuity in the locker room.
Anthony Davis outreached Kevin Garnett and Jeff Green for a last-second tip-in, and the New Orleans Hornets snapped a four-game skid with an 87-86 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
Davis was playing despite missing the morning shootaround with an illness, and finished with nine points and eight rebounds. Ryan Anderson scored 21 points and Eric Gordon 18 for the...
By now, we have all gotten caught up in the debate of whose “posterization” was better, LeBron James on Jason Terry or DeAndre Jordan on Brandon Knight. I am still giving the edge to Jordan, but I have no doubt that Terry is having a few nightmares. After a dunk like that, you know reporters and members of the media are going to be asking you all kinds of questions. You can...
