Paul Pierce sounds pissed off

We posted this video last night, but felt that what Pierce said maybe deserved a little extra attention. The Celtics laid a huge egg on national TV last night. For a team that's been boasting about how tight they are and tough to beat, they didn't look like a group that could get past the first round. That didn't sit well with Paul Pierce. "We don't talk...

Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo has come around on Jeff Green

Jeff Green has been polarizing player for many Celtics fans. Some love him; love the potential, and the flashes of greatness. Some hate him simply because he was the piece we got back for Perkins, and others can’t stand him, think he’s overrated, not that good etc. Coming out of college he was hearing much of the same stuff, even from the NBA coaching circle. Before last night’s...

Jeff Green Shares Bond With P.J. Carlesimo Despite Tough Love From First NBA Coach

BOSTON — Jeff Green and P.J. Carlesimo were not fast friends. When Green came into the NBA as a rookie out of Georgetown in 2007, he found a coach with a reputation for being tough on players, who had an infamous run-in with a player a decade earlier and who was skeptical of Green’s ability to succeed in the NBA. Yet as Green was going through his rehabilitation from heart surgery...

Boston Celtics: What if Garnett and Pierce Retired?

What if Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry retired after the season? They would have almost 30 million dollars in extra cap space and they could conceivably rebuild in less than a year.
