After the success of last season, the worst thing the NBA could do was miss time because of a lockout. I can speak for all Celtics fans when I say we are ready to watch the team on this latest title chase even though the season is almost two months late. But we need the Celtics to show us they really do appreciate the fans like they say they do. I’m talking about some creative promotions or email marketing campaigns that would make buying tickets too good to pass up. I happen to have a few ideas to pass along to Danny Ainge that just might convince me to return to the Garden. Ridin’ with Ray The ride to the TD Garden to watch Celtics home games would be much smoother if I were able to ride with one of the smoothest players on and off the court, Ray Allen. The Celtics will need to go all out to get me back in their good graces after this lockout. I would buy season tickets if they guarantee me a ride to the arena with “Jesus Shuttlesworth.” Cooking with KG If the Celtics really ...

I am not South Beach.  I am a Celtic. Fantastic video!  This was posted on Youtube by the Boston Celtics PR group.  Kudos for Redsarmy with the find.  This makes me want to run through walls for basketball, maybe I will bust through the wall at Game On tonight for The Basketball Jones Tour.  I need to find this song and put it on my ipod immediately.

Rajon Rondo trade rumors: Is Dwight Howard part of the Boston Celtics’ Chris Paul plan?

The Boston Celtics are trying (rather aggressively, if you believe the rumors) to acquire Chris Paul. But I believe there must be something bigger at play, something bigger even than Chris Paul, even if that “something bigger” seems far-fetched and improbable and very much Dwight Howard.On the surface, trading Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul does not make sense. I certainly believe...
