Does everyone know where former San Antonio Spurs guard Michael Finley finished out his NBA career? The answer is the Boston Celtics. If you didn’t know that, I don’t blame you. After Finley left the Spurs, he kind of faded into obscurity, trying to contribute what he could to a Celtics team that lost in the Finals to the L.A. Lakers. He never really was at 100% and didn’t get much playing time, but now he says he’s ready to come back to basketball. Finley sent a tweet to HoopsHype last week that said:
“U left me off the free agency list #notdoneyet”
I can understand feeling a little left out. Once you retire from the game, people don’t care as much about what you’re doing, so Finley wants a little piece of fame back. Well he can get the rumor mill going all he wants, I can’t see an NBA team taking a chance on him. He hasn’t ruled out playing overseas or in the D-league, which is a much more believable option, but I really doubt he could get himself into NBA shape right now.

Ray Allen is in the final year of his deal. Then again, it has been well documented that just about everyone on the Celtics roster is in the final year of their deals. Allen will turn 37 years old this summer and while most superstars his age would have started to fizzle out three or four years ago, Ray has continued to build his case as the greatest shooter the sport has ever...

The Celtics were able to win one on the road Sunday against the Wizards, but both teams travel back to Boston to finish off the second part of a double header between the two squads. The Celtics looked like the much better team in their contest Sunday, as they rightfully should have, but the dreaded [...]
The Celtics shook off a lackluster first half blowing out the Nets 89-70 in Boston . New Jersey was without Brook Lopez and Deron Williams yet hung with the Celtics in the first half. Boston took control in the 3rd quarter and never looked back in a blow out win.
Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points. In Ray Allen's absence Avery Bradley stepped in nicely with 11 points...
After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players... and maybe coach's... performance. If we like what we see, we're buyin'. If we don't, we're sellin'. Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game
Rajon Rondo: He's here so much I'm going to make him part of the template. The triple-double in game 1...
The sun sets every evening, but only occasionally are the clouds splayed perfectly across the night sky to draw an array of yellow, orange and blue pastels and catch your attention so beautifully that a higher power suddenly seems like a greater possibility. Not one to watch sunsets routinely, I occasionally glance at the sky in the evening at the right time and wonder why I don’t...
(Editor's note: My apologies for the lack of updates or recaps on Sunday and Monday. It was a holiday weekend. You understand, don't you? Don't you?)
I'm dying to give the Celtics all of the credit in the world. I really am. I just can't bring myself to do it.
It has nothing to do with what the Celtics have or haven't done over the last two nights. There...

The Wizards (0-4) are still the NBA’s only winless team as they conclude a home-and-home, back-to-back series against the Boston Celtics. John Wall played his best game of the season (19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds), but fellow Kentucky alum Rajon Rondo was much better, finishing with a triple-double (18 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds) as the Wizards lost 94-86...
