The Curious Case of Jeff Green

Real talk: Time to pick it up, Jeff.   The Legendary Legend trade of 2013 left the 2013-14 Celtics with a vacancy in leadership and a dearth of shooting guards & small forwards.  With Rajon Rondo still on the sidelines recovering from ACL surgery, all eyes have shifted to Jeff Green, not only as heir apparent to Paul Pierce, but as a young veteran who has shown flashes of...

Getting Bass to basics

Brandon Bass is one of my favourite Celtic players when he’s getting the job done on defense, it’s amazing how a power forward with his physique has managed to defend the likes of dominant players like LeBron and Melo with nothing but hustle and solid footwork. Next up, offense. Stone cold mid-range jumpshots, swishing one after another. Getting inside with one dribble and dunking...
