AROUND THE WEB
Kevin Garnett had some thoughts on the Celtics losing big to the Clippers, going so far as to say the team gave them too much respect.
At age 36, Kevin Garnett has reached the tail end of his career with the Boston Celtics. Retirement is right around the corner for The Big Ticket, and he said when he is done with basketball, he’s done with basketball. By that, K.G. means that he isn’t planning to get into coaching and is unlikely to become a television analyst. However, he did seize the opportunity to blast...
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from northern California.
Though the Warriors were the team playing a back-to-back, Boston was the one that looked old and tired.
Especially when compared to the 20-year-old Barnes, whose fresh legs and athleticism bothered Pierce all night. Pierce...
First-off, sorry for anyone who could not tune in to the live stream. I had not used UStream in over a year, and will never use it again. Now on to bigger and better things…
Kevin Garnett’s 3rd signature shoe with Anta, the “KG3″ was released only in China on December 1st. Anta still does not have a US distribution deal, so if you don’t live in China, they’re very hard...
Celticslife writers looking good
Disappointing, disgrace, upsetting. That is exactly how I felt going to my first Boston Celtics' game last night. I was really excited to go, and when I first bought the ticket in October, I thought it would be a guaranteed win, but I was totally wrong. I first met Paul Pierce in 2002, giving away signed autographs of his game "NBA Inside...
A good performance from Kevin Garnett was far from enough.If Oprah invited me on her show right now for all of my accomplishments and contributions to society (like inventing a new drink at Taco Bell and watching the first two seasons of Community in two days), I would probably have a Tom Cruise-style meltdown and start jumping on the couch, laughing manically and screaming “IT...
Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo talk after the Celtics third straight blowout loss.

As the slumping Celtics get ready to try and somewhat salvage a west coast road trip tonight, Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears published a great Q & A with Kevin Garnett.
In it, KG says ”I hope the young boys know that [respect] is earned. You just don’t get respect in this league. You earn it.” This in response to Spears’ asking if today’s younger players have the same...
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.
“These are dog days. This is when you really see who’s with you right now. You know, ain’t nobody cheering. Ain’t no lights on us right now. And I love this right here, because this is when all the plastic...
OAKLAND -- David Lee scored both right- and left-handed during a personal 8-3 flurry late in the game as the Golden State Warriors held off a Philadelphia 76ers rally en route to a 96-89 victory Friday night at Oracle Arena. Down 20 midway through the third period, the 76ers used a 17-3 burst to get back into the game. They trimmed the Warriors' lead to five at 82-77 with 8...
The Warriors haven't been this good since the days of "Run TMC"
These aren't the old Golden State Warriors that we're used to seeing. This year's squad is 20-10, 9-4 at home, and in second place in the Pacific Division behind LA (that's the Clippers, not the Lakers; what a weird NBA season this is out in California?). David Lee and Steph Curry...
Well for those that fell asleep waiting for the game to start after Darren Collison hit the shot of the year, you really didn’t miss much. The Clippers got out to a huge lead early and the Celtics couldn’t buy a bucket tonight as the Clippers win their 15th straight in a 106-77 blowout.
The Green: Kevin Garnett. He finished the night with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting...
I’m guessing most of you don’t feel like re-watching the carnage that happened over the past few days, but not to worry: I hated myself enough to review what happened. You can thank me with gift baskets. Now let’s talk about how awful Boston’s defense has been before I go back to banging my head painfully against the corner of a cabinet.There’s been a common theme —a...
The Boston Celtics finish the year with a game against the Sacramento Kings at their stadium.
In the last handful of years, the above sentence didn´t hold any special significance. The Kings haven´t been a true team since the end of the Webber years and the Celtics have been a powerhouse in the league. It would normally be just a game in which the team would coast and would win...
