Return by DecemberRT @seandutra: Hey @gary_tanguay , any more news on Avery Bradley? Recovery wise?— Gary Tanguay (@Gary_Tanguay) August 1, 2012
Take this with a heaping pile of salt since its Gary Tanguay, but its not that far off from the other reports we've heard. Courtney Lee or Jason Terry are going to have to step up while Bradley is out. We do have to worry about Bradley when he gets back though, and if he will be the same that he was towards the end of last year after having both shoulders operated on. Two shoulders.... doesn't sound good.
Remember that time Gary Tanguay said that Paul Pierce wouldn't be on the Celtics come March 1st, 2012.
I kind of like Tanguay actually, only because he gets picked on so much. There are a lot who can't stand this guy.

The Daily Times reports that Celtics new signee, Dionte Christmas, led a trio of former Temple players on a team called "Take Your Game To Another Level" to win the Delco Pro-Am title with a 67-62 victory. The tournament took place at Haverford College just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
One of Christmas' teammates was former Knick, Mardy Collins, who played...
"Ray made the best decision for him," Pierce told the team's official website Thursday in his first public offseason comments. "That's what it's all about: You get in these situations, you become a free agent, and you make a decision based on what's best for you and your family. Ray will always be a brother for me. If it wasn't for...

Today marked the end of the Greg Stiemsma era in Boston. He was introduced by the Timberwolves at a press conference today. Stiemsma said that he had hoped to return to Boston but they didn't have to twist his arm very hard to get him to return to that part of the country, which is just half a day's drive from his hometown in Wisconsin. He gave props to KG saying this...
Thanks @Asijs for the mix.

Paul Pierce gave his first interview of the offseason to Molly McGrath over at Celtics.com where he offered his thoughts on a multitude of topics, including the departure of former Celtic Ray Allen:“It’s going to be a little weird. Ray made the best decision for him. That’s what it is all about. When you are a free agent you make the best decision for you. He’ll always...
Another must read Doc Rivers article from Adrian Wojnarowski, this one is full of a very candid Doc talking about the reason Ray left, a lot of them are the rumors that were reported recently. Doc also says he takes full blame for Ray Allen's decision to leave.
Essentially what Doc says is Ray left for a few reasons.
1. He was upset that Rondo had the ball so much and his role...
It’s not too often that a player leaves a team via free agency and that player’s former coach shoulders the blame for said player leaving. Apparently in the case of Ray Allen leaving the Boston Celtics for seemingly greener pastures (pardon the pun), Doc Rivers is feeling a bit guilty about some of the decisions [...]
Over the last couple of weeks, reports have surfaced in the media stating that the reason Boston Celtics veteran shooting guard Ray Allen, decided to take his talents to South Beach, was due to a deteriorating relationship with Boston’s starting point guard Rajon Rondo. Celtics bench boss Doc Rivers, felt he had to clarify the situation and in an interview that was published Wednesday...
When Ray Allen left the Boston Celtics to join the Miami Heat in free agency many wonder why? Well it appears Allen did not get along on the best of terms with Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and management. As you see below Doc Rivers says blame him for Rondo leaving.
There is no question when he is on his game Rondo is one of the best point guards in the NBA. He is...
The Bucks are interested in signing Mickael Pietrus or C.J. Miles to add depth to their small forward position.
I've written a couple articles lately about how Red put character first in choosing his players and how important signing players with good character is to developing chemistry on a team. I said in one article that I thought Danny did a good job in bringing in that type of player for this year's Celtics.
Today, in the Sun News, there is evidence of this very thing. We...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
In the 2012-13 NBA season alone, Garnett should surpass 6,000 points, leaving Ray Allen (5,987), Bailey Howell(5,812), Don Chaney (5,689), Dee Brown (5,512) and Larry Siegfried (5,420) in his wake....
