State Of The Celtics:
Celtics center Greg Stiemsma, who spent the last half of the season dealing with a foot injury that limited his minutes, his production and required him to wear a massive walking boot when not playing basketball, will head into free agency this summer. However, he made it no secret that he'd love to be back in Boston next season. (Boston Herald)
Stiemsma will be taking a wait-and see approach with everything this summer.
“Obviously, I have to do what’s best financially for me and my family. But at the same time, to come back to this system where I think I fit in pretty well, that will play a factor, too,” Stiemsma said. “The fans in Boston have been unbelievable. To come back to play for Doc (Rivers), hopefully we can make that work out. Boston is definitely my No. 1 choice.”
So you can put Stiemsma down as the third potential Celtics free agent to make it known that they want to return to the team next year. Both Brandon Bass and Mickael Pietrus have already expres...

During an appearance this morning on WEEI, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix hinted at a riff between Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen:
“There is going to be a ton of interest in Ray Allen in the offseason,” Mannix said. “He’s going to be able to pick and choose where he wants to play.”
Allen conceivably could return to Boston, but Mannix said that decision might be affected...
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.
“First, he has a lot of respect for Doc (Rivers, the C’s coach),” the source said. “I’m not sure there is someone else he could play for at this point. He’s very loyal. But he’s also very proud. As...

Fans of the Boston Celtics better be prepared to hear stories like this for the next few months.
While we await word of whether or not Kevin Garnett will return for his 18th season, we are already hearing that a team not named the Boston Celtics is interested in his services should he decide to lace up his ANTA kicks next year. The interested team is the San Antonio Spurs...
Allen will have surgery to remove bone spurs from the ankle at 6 a.m. on Wednesday at New England Baptist Hospital, according to a source.
The problem, which first surfaced during in Los Angeles during the C’s’ eight-game road trip in mid-March, eventually forced Allen to miss 15 regular-season games as well as the first two games of the Celtics’ first-round...
The Celtics tweeted out this video a little while ago. It’s a nice thank you to the fans.
Not gonna lie… I’m a little upset that I’m posting this today and not in a couple of weeks with some clips of the parade. I’m suddenly not as ok with things as I was earlier today.
I guess that’s what “denial” is all about.
And with that Gm7 loss in Miami we are left to wonder what will happen to KG and Ray. All I can say is they did great but just fell short. All things must pass. Still I cant help but look toward a successful Boston Celtics!
Thank You C's!

One third of the Boston Celtics’ “big three” will go under the knife on Wednesday evening. Ray Allen will undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle.
An injury that caused Allen to miss 15 regular season games and two playoff games against the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the eastern conference playoffs.
These nagging ankle issues were also the cause...
The Boston Celtics forced the Miami Heat to the brink of elimination. Kevin Garnett channelled his inner "Big Ticket" in the process. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce looked more their age. Through 20 postseason games, KG posted playoff averages of 19.2 points and 10.3 rebounds per night. Allen and Pierce did not help things as much as Celtics Nation hoped they would.
Ric Bucher was on Dennis and Callahan this morning. Bucher called himself a "big fan" of Jeff Green. It's uncertain whether Jeff Green will be willing to sign with the Celtics to come off the bench. In order to free up a starting spot for Green, Bucher floated the idea of a Paul Pierce for Pau Gasol trade, which he claims several GM's have said they'd...
Before I start, I need to apologize for the long absence. Since I'm currently writing this, it's obvious I'm not dead. I didn't lose interest or my faith in the Celtics or writing. I guess the easiest way to describe it is to say that life got in the way.
Just because I wasn't writing about the Celtics didn't mean I wasn't watching every game religiously...
I was a guest on WGBB radio New York the other night to discuss the Boston Celtics Big Three and a bunch of other topics. Fast forward to the 20-minute mark at this link if you want to hear my segment.
It wasn’t that long ago when Danny Ainge brought in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to join Paul Pierce, leading the Celtics to their first NBA Championship in 22 years. That season was as fun as they come, and the rest of the four years wasn’t four behind. That trio might have played its last game together, so take a look at this video and remember that first championship run.
Kevin Garnett has been fined $25,000 for failing to make himself available to the media following Boston's 101-88 loss in Game 7.
