Hey, I don’t create the stories, I just cover them, even on slow news days such as today. Above is a video featuring mush-mouthed NBA analyst Shaquille O’Neal — who apparently has more free time on his hands than I do, as he refers to the video in its YouTube description as “Normal Stuff” — [...]

Jason Terry makes prediction with new Celtics tattoo

Jason Terry signed with the Celtics in July and got a tattoo in honor of his new team.

Jason Terry's New Tatoo Wins the Offseason

You may recall that when Jason Terry was introduced at the press conference he said he had something special in mind for his new tattoo.  He wasn't kidding.  He had gotten a tattoo of the Larry O'Brien trophy on his bicep in the off season before the Mavs won their Championship in 2011.  Today, Terry sent out this tweet to herald the unveiling of his new Celtics tattoo...

Rajon Rondo shows off impressive leaping skills

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo pulled off an impressive feat in the team gym during a recent summer workout that has to be seen to be believed, as he took one step and leaped on top of a 4-foot-tall plyometric box. We're estimating the height of the box given that Rondo is 6-foot-1 and the box comes up to the middle of his chest. There doesn't appear to be any trickery...

Video: Courtney Lee says joining the Celtics was "a no-brainer"

Courtney Lee made his first public appearance as a Celtic at a Shamrock Foundation benefit soiree. WEEI's Ben Rohrbach posted the above interview with Lee, who reveals that he took less money to come to Boston but he wanted the chance to contend for a title and be part of a winning tradition. From Rohrbach's YouTube page: Here's all you need to know about Celtics...

Video: Kris Joseph interview at Celtics Summer Soiree

We saw WEEI's earlier interviews from the Boston Celtics Summer Soiree with Courtney Lee and Avery Bradley, and now we have one from rookie Kris Joseph. In the above video, Joseph speaks on his experience in the summer league, what he looks forward to in the upcoming Celtics training camp, how he is eager to learn from guys like Pierce, Rondo, Garnett, and Dooling, and how...

Rajon Rondo Shows Off Athleticism, Hops During Summer Workout at Celtics' Gym (Video)

Rajon Rondo isn't exactly known for throwing down monstrous dunks, but that doesn't mean the Celtics point guard can't get up there. In a video posted on the team's Facebook page, Rondo shows off his hops by leaping onto some random object. Not sure what the object is exactly -- maybe mats? -- but it's a pretty impressive leap, nonetheless. The best part of it...

Video: Rondo scoffs at the law of gravity

Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound it's... Rajon Rondo? Yeah, you heard me right. If you thought I was going to mention Superman, you'd be wrong. Rondo hasn't really been know for crazy hops. You usually see him hit the paint and throw up a floater, lay up or pull up for a mid-range shot. However, he has dunked on Chris Bosh but then again, who hasn...

Jet’s new tat

Jason Terry got a new tat. Via his Twitter page, he shared 2 pics: one of him on the table with the artist working on his bicep, and one of the finished product. It appears to be the Celtics’ mascot, Lucky, with the Larry O’Brien trophy replacing the basketball on his finger. I think I’m going to like the Jason Terry era in Boston!

Paul Pierce 'Gets It' When Playing in Boston but Celtics Star Has Every Right to Test Free Agency (Podcast)

Paul Pierce seems to be one of the guys who "gets it" when it comes to playing in Boston. That might mean different things to different people, but the Celtics faithful have formed a special connection with the team's 1998 first-round draft pick over the course of his 14-year career. So it came as a bit of a jolt when Pierce recently discussed the possibility of testing...

A quick glimpse at his Celtics-related comments courtesy of the Hartford Courant: "I was a free agent," he said, "and I had to make a decision I definitely thought was best for me to move forward....

In Case You Forgot, Rajon Rondo Is Crazy Athletic

One of the first times I ever saw Rajon Rondo play was in a preseason game against the New York Knicks.  This was in 2006, his rookie season, which was obviously before he’d established himself as one of the more unique playmakers in the NBA.  Knowing little about college basketball, I had no real impression of Rondo.  I’d heard he was an athlete, and I knew he’d been sent...
