When the Boston Celtics drafted Fab Melo, I think my first reaction was, “WHY NOT PERRY JONES!?!?” If one of you really wants, you could go back on my Twitter timeline and probably see a minor freak out (or a near-heart attack, one or the other), mostly because I understood Melo needed plenty of time to develop. He only started playing basketball about five years ago, he averaged just 7.8 points per game in college last year, and he has essentially never played man-to-man defense prior to this season, certainly a detriment to his hopes for producing at the NBA level this year.I eventually sold myself on Melo, for obvious reasons: “He’s tall! He can run! He was voted the NBA’s funniest rookie!” But he’s going to take time. And the Celtics know that, so he’s likely to spend a lot of time with the Maine Red Claws this season.

This may or may not be real, but it's funny regardless. From thebiglead.com who got it from lobshots.com. My money is on real. I've already seen Rajon autograph a baby this week, and I know you can buy that shirt outside the Garden after games. Follow Mark on twitter @LucidSportsFan

Last night after the loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Kevin Garnett gave a speech to his teammates that involved a "pack of hyenas" metaphor. Strange to say the least. But this isn't the first time Kevin has said some very strange metaphors. Lets look back on some of his best.

bittersweet send-off from their fans toward the end of Game 6 of the Eastern

Looks like that Boston Celtics-Miami Heat tense rivalry just got taken up a notch.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo had an autograph signing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, last week, and while he was there, he took a picture with a female fan who was wearing a “LeBron is a ******** T-shirt.
There were plenty of questions on the ‘net about the authenticity of the shirt, but a second...

Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play.
Said Legler: “I look at it as a guy...
All this talk about Dwyane Wade whining about Rondo's hard foul had me thinking about how basketball used to be played. You know by now that I read a lot of books on Celtics history. I love reading the story about how the Celtics didn't back down from anyone. Those Celtics teams in the old days had some swagger. I know that part of that swagger came from winning, but...
Doc on Wade's "punk play" comment: "Don't forget about Rondo's elbow injury (in 2011 playoffs)…that was created by Dwyane Wade."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 1, 2012
Yeah, cause Dwyane Wade has never done a punk move in his life.
Seriously, I'm sick of Wade already. I never hated him before the Heat got LeBron and Bosh but since then...
Jason Terry of the Boston Celtics ROCKS the headband like no other. He decided to spread the LOVE across Boston with MIXED RESULTS.
This video proves that all heads are NOT HEADBAND WORTHY. One woman was having a major issue putting on this athletic fashion accessory.
Yes, we are NOT KIDDING.
EPIC HEADBAND FAIL…..
Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview,
There is one thing we do know is that the NBA is a copycat league. When the Boston Celtics revived the 'Big Three' theory, Pat Riley decided that he wanted his own with a slight twist. As a result he got the 'super-brats' together in South Beach and won the 2011-12 NBA title. This year, for some reason, the NBA is not only obsessed with small-ball but the pick-n-roll...
The Celtics trail the Bucks 46-3 at the half as Brandon Jennings leads the way with 15 points and four assists. It’s been a game marred by a high turnover rate and mediocre shooting, with the majority of the quality offense coming on the break. The lone bright spot for the Celtics has been Jared [...]
