The Boston Celtics, more so than any other NBA franchise, knows what a championship team looks like, winning a record 17 titles.

Chris Paul, J.J. Redick Needed To Get Over Dislike Of Each Other

Chris Paul and J.J. Redick held a dislike toward each other as opponents at Wake Forest and Duke, respectively, and then carried over the hatred in the NBA.

"Who would have...

Chris Paul and J.J. Redick, now Clippers teammates, bury feud

The feud started as these things often do with a Tobacco Road rivalry. A fight at Michael Jordan's camp followed as did an injury scare. But when J.J. Redick joined the Los Angeles Clippers in July to become Chris Paul's new backcourt mate … well both Redick and Paul knew it was finally time to end their dislike of each other. "We have actually had a chance to become...

Stevens doesn't need a captain, he knows who leads the C's

Rajon Rondo has been the leader, or at least the best player on the Celtics since 2010. It was always hard for Rondo to be the leader with Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett in the locker room. The two players called Rondo the leader, but to be fair, everyone still looked at "The Truth", and "The Big Ticket" for leadership. For the first time Rondo is left on this...

Clippers trying to escape Lakers shadow... literally

The Los Angeles Clippers have long tried to get out of the Lakers' shadow. They have played in the same building since the 2000 season and are the second team in that famous city in California. They have long fought for their place in the spotlight. The problem is the Clippers did not really deserve it until Chris Paul arrived two years ago and turned the Clippers from NBA...

OH BOY! D. Rose drops 22 points in 22 minutes

Have several seats Chris Paul, Tony Parker, Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry, and Deron Williams.  To Russell Westbrook and Rajon Rondo, you two should just stay seated.  The best point guard in the game, Derrick Rose, is back.  Officially.

Celtics leadership baton passed to new vets

Some players retreat into the seclusion of the trainer’s room when they’re injured but say this much about Rajon Rondo. The Celtics guard is at every game every back-to-back and in his coach’s ear fully invested in establishing his position as leader of this fluid imprecise team. But he’s not on the floor maybe not until sometime in December. His clout has limitations in...

Boston Celtics, Phil Pressey, making case to be a starter

  Last season when Rajon Rondo went down, the Celtics had a tough time finding a ball player to bring the ball down the court. Often times, Paul Pierce was forced to bring the ball up the court, and be the facilitator/scorer for the team.  Doc Rivers experimented with using Avery Bradley at the one, but as most know it didn’t pan out that well. With coach Stevens this year, he...

These awards will be named after Celtics greats (and not-so-greats), and hopefully...
