I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Los Angeles. Bynum dominated again at times against the Celtics, repeatedly making Kevin Garnett look every minute of 35 years old. He finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds. He played nearly 41 minutes, second only among the Lakers to Bryant. He played all but one minute of the second half, second only among the Lakers, again, to Bryant. On the game’s deciding basket, Bynum bullied Garnett, moving him deep, deeper and deeper still, until being able to convert from in close. “Andrew is too big,” Bryant said. “You can’t teach that. I knew it was going to be a high-percentage shot.” On Friday, Bynum made headlines by saying the Lakers were going to go at Boston’s head, at “the Celtics’ rack.” Instead, he reached in and strong-arm stole their heart.

Bryant And Bynum Help Lakers Slip Past Celtics 97-94

The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers met on the hardwood of the Staples Center on Sunday for the second and final time during the regular NBA season and once again, the contest was a battle to the end with the outcome in doubt until the final buzzer sounded.

Celtics Lose Crucial Game to the Lakers 97-94

Lakers, Celtics both in transitioning eras

LOS ANGELES-- Whenever the Lakers and Celtics meet, it's safe to say that something unexpected will happen. Like Ron Artest hitting a huge three-pointer in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals to help the Lakers win their 16th world title. Or like Kobe Bryant in the huddle calling for a potential game-winning shot attempt byAndrew Bynum. Yes, Bryantthought by many critics to be a...

Lakers-Grizzlies Preview

A stop in Memphis might not provide the Los Angeles Lakers with the best opportunity to win back-to-back road games for only the second time this season. The Lakers will look for a third straight victory overall Tuesday night, but to do it they'll need to snap the Grizzlies' season-high six-game home winning streak. Los Angeles (25-16) pulled out a 97-94 home win over Boston...

Can We All Agree Maria Menounos Is Celtics Only Old(er), Hot Superfan?

So Maria Menounos was at Sunday’s Celtics-Lakers game and we really don’t have any sort of story to tell you here. Yes, Maria is still all together at 33-years-old (born June 8, 1978). The arms aren’t getting droopy. The face isn’t starting to fall apart. But, this is how bad things are for the Celtics organization. Not only is the basketball team ancient, so is the superfan...

Comments from the other side - Clippers 3/12

 My first thought in reading the Clipper boards was "With fans like this, who needs enemies!"  Way more hatred for their own team than for the Celtics.  But, of course they hate KG and Pierce.  That's a given for any team fanbase.  They are, however, coveting Ray Allen.  Who wouldn't want that silky shot on their team?  They also hate their coach.  I think...
