Doc: "I couldn't be more proud of a group of guys who went through (so much) adversity. They never didn't think they could (do it)." — Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 4, 2013Doc on the 20-0 run: "It was a microcosm of the year, that stretch. We've been counted out 4-5 times this year, and each time we came back." — Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 4, 2013Doc on convo w/ KG: "He told me he loved me and I told him I loved him. Kevin always checks on me and he wanted to know if I'm OK." — Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 4, 2013Doc on getting band back together next season: "I've given it 0 thought. I immerse myself, that's the only way I can do it. I don't know." — Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 4, 2013Doc: "He's one of the greatest Celtics ever. He's done so much for this franchise. Paul has chosen to stay here throughout his career." — Boston Celtics (@celtics) May 4, 2013 Year 6 of the 3 year plan got dera...

Danny Ainge Takes Full Responsibility for Celtics' Loss

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...

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...

More Terrence Williams looks like the right move

In last night's inspiring 92-86 victory at MSG, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers used just two players off the bench; Jason Terry for 35 minutes (no surprise), and 17 for Terrence Williams.  Yup, the same Terrence Williams who was playing in China three months ago.  In fact, when Doc had to give Kevin Garnett a much needed breather halfway through the 4th quarter, Williams was...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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!

New York Knickerbockers head coach irked that his player wore black to symbolize going to a Boston Celtics funeral

The New York Knickerbockers have been the talk of the town today.  Knickerbockers players decided to all wear all black to symbolize going to a funeral.  They thought they would [...]

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...

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

Celtics Still Alive

[caption id="attachment_138" align="aligncenter" width="576"][/caption] With everyone including myself writing the Celtics off going into game 5 in New York, the Celtics proved us all wrong and kept the series alive with a 92-86 win. With a good win, the Celtics have quiet some of their doubters. Though in my opinion they are just...

Celtics-Knicks Postgame: Men Take Care of Business on the Floor

After the Boston Celtics' 92-86 win over the New York Knicks wrapped up Wednesday night, there was a minor scuffle around the scorer's table. I'm not going to get into what one player said to another about so and so. That isn't the point. This isn't even about a deep bench sub who can't crack the rotation, possibly insulting one of the greatest basketball...
