Found June 03, 2012 on CLNS Radio:
  *** Crawford.  Kennedy.  Willard.  Davis.  Their names strike fear in the hearts of all Celtics fans.  No they are not members of the Miami Heat (not officially anyways, pardon the pun) but they are members of the Evil Axis of Officials.  Their reputations are synonymous with ineptitude, narcissism, bias, bullying, and flat out ridiculousness [...]

Doc: Last year's team would be out of the playoffs already

Doc Rivers has, from time to time, shown he's not entirely fond of last year's Celtics team.  He'll tell you flat out that last year's team was more talented than this one, but this one actually plays together.  Today, less than a day removed from a tough, gritty win to even up the Eastern Conference Finals at two games each, he brought it up again. "...

Bosh may return to Heat for Game 5 in Miami

Chris Bosh could be back with the Miami Heart for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Robert Parish sells 1981 championship ring

Earlier I posted the 1981 World Champion Celtics Locker Room Celebration video that I found earlier this week. Where did I find it? I was tipped off that Robert Parish was auctioning off his 1981 championship ring and the video was on the auction page. The auction has now ended and the ring has sold for $45,478. The ring came with a letter of authenticity signed by Robert Parish...

Celtics 93, Heat 91: How does one describe that?

I don’t have much time at all to write about that win that was alternately brilliant, frustrating and brilliant again, but check out my column for the Springfield Republican newspaper.

Video: Jalen Smith crosses up LeBron James Jr.

No need for much lead up commentary as these are just children, so just watch and listen: Jalen Smith, 9, took full advantage at the poor defensive stance of 7-year old LeBron James, Jr. Even though they’re just kids, that had to be the highlight of Jalen’s young basketball career. Not to mention Jalen already [...]

Rondo Helps Celtics Get Even

For the Miami Heat, it was a chance to take the series back to Miami with a 3-1 lead. For the Boston Celtics, it was the perfect opportunity to get even. Rajon Rondo scored 15 points and added 15 assists, including three points in overtime, to propel the Celtics to a 93-91 win and even the Eastern Conference Finals to two games each.

Rajon Rondo calls Miami Heat crybabies, provides another window into his psyche

One gets the feeling Rajon Rondo uses controversy like most use caffeine. He hears trade rumors and becomes a triple-double machine. Craig Sager asks him an innocent question about how the Celtics can handle rest and Rondo responds as if Sager just called his daughter ugly. Doris Burke asks him about Boston’s unexpected scoring binge and Rondo uses it as an excuse to call the...

Recap: The grittiest and ballsiest win yet

Three reasons the Celtics won this game: Grit and balls. Balls and grit. Grit and balls. What did I tell you all before the game via Twitter? Joey Crawford is the only ref with the balls to take on LeBron Wade and Dwyane Wade. And Joey delivered with the 6th whistle on James. Now excuse me while I restart my heart.

Wade Searching For Ways To Be Effective

Things haven’t gotten better for Wade against the Boston Celtics because they have been quick to send double-teams his way without the threat of Chris Bosh to keep them honest. The result is Wade is only averaging 21.0 points while seeing his shooting percentage steadily decline in each game so far this series.
