Found July 30, 2012 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Are you one of the Celtics fans who longs for the good old days when a clothesline in the Finals was just a regular foul? Do you long for the days when Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish WERE walking through those doors? Well, I've got good news for you. At 5:30 PM ET today, on NBA-TV, as part of Old School Monday, they will air a Celtics-Pistons game from March 3, 1985. Kevin McHale torched Detroit for 56 points in a 138-129 win over the Pistons at the Boston Garden. Isiah Thomas had 33 points in the loss and Larry Bird chipped in with 30, but it was McHale's 22-28 shooting that stole the show in this one.

And, if you want to further immerse yourself in Celtics past, at 7:30 PM ET, you can watch the Chicago Bulls vs. the Boston Celtics Game 2, in the 1986 Eastern Conference first-round playoff series.   This double overtime game featured Michael Jordan's record 63 points but the Celtics' teamwork overcame Jordan's explosion to win the game.

And for those masochistic type Celtics fans, there is a replay of all 5 episodes of the Association that featured the Celtics from 3:00 AM ET through 5:30 AM ET. I still have not watched the final two episodes where they learn about the Perk trade. I just can't. But if you're into staying up all night and fell you need a Celtics' fix, it's there.

Celtics Well Represented at the Olympics

There have been several articles on the USA basketball team and the fact that there are no Celtics on the team. The Celtics' stars were pretty much beat up at the end of last season and even if one of them wanted play for team USA, they needed time to heal and  I just don't see how they would have been able to. And I doubt that USA basketball was interested in recruiting...

Should Celtics Raise Standards for Retiring Jersey Numbers?

The Celtics have been around for 66 years, won 17 championships and sent 16 players to the Hall of Fame. Suffice to say, the franchise has a lot to celebrate. If Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have their numbers retired as expected once their days in green are finished, however, the Celtics will have 23 numbers unavailable between zero and 35. Pretty soon, new Celtics players may...

DJ Delz: “Imagine if Lebron James went to the Celtics”

When Ray Allen left Boston for the Miami Heat, my first thought was: “Damn we’re going to miss his clutch 3′s.”  My second thought was: “Damn I’m really going to miss his sweet J’s.”  No..not those J’s-his Jordans. During his time with the Celtics, Ray wore some sweet Air Jordan player exclusives. I doubt we will ever see a better selection of kicks than we did...
