CelticsLife readers and writers. I need your help. I can't wrap my head around this crazy season the Celtics are having. Before the year began, I thought this was the best Celtics team we've had during the Garnett era. Unfortunately, we sputtered out of the gate, and while we've had our moments, it has pretty much been a disappointing season up until this recent win streak.
One would think that losing your best player and arguably the best point guard in the NBA would make a team worse, right? I know everyone is talking about the fact that it allows players like Jason Terry and Courtney Lee to have bigger roles and play more to their strengths, but can it really have that big an impact on the team? Is Rondo just not as important as we thought? Is this recent 6 game win streak a mirage or is this what we should expect going forward? I'm confused.
What I have seen since the Rondo injury is the Celtics playing with a renewed sense of purpose. They are moving without ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo may be out for the season with a torn ACL, but that doesn't mean he's gonna just sit at home.

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.
“We are different without him,” Ainge explained. “We’re running better now because five guys are running. Honestly, I think we rely on Rondo too much.
“For example: With Rondo out, you see Jeff Green grab...
Jason Terry‘s last shot told the whole story. With the Celtics up by four and Terry seemingly heating up with two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter already, the veteran sharpshooter let loose a long-range shot that might have put the nail in the Bobcats’ coffin. The other four guys in green jerseys turned to jog back down the court, anticipating another flight for the Jet.
Boston Celtic veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce have had their names come up in trade rumors throughout the season. However, general manager Danny Ainge doesn’t expect either player to be traded, reports Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston."Yeah, I think that's by far the most likely thing. Sure," he said when asked whether he was comfortable saying the two stars...

At this rate, the Celtics might just have to call the season sometime around early March when they run out of players.
Shortly after the Celtics’ seven-game winning streak came to an end in Charlotte, Kevin Garnett informed reporters that Celtics players were told in the locker room that Leandro Barbosa is done for the season.
The severity of Barbosa’s injury was not immediately...
When your playing a game on the playground or on the court out by the beach it is not unusual to see--or hear guys do a little trash talking. The movie White Men Can't Jump counted on it to add some humor to the movie--well, because it's funny even when delivered in the most serious manner.
I am not foolish enough to believe for even a second that there isn...
Paul Pierce and the Celtics have had a chance to show their toughness with Rondo out
The Boston Celtics won their seventh straight game Sunday, this one a triple overtime epic against the Denver Nuggets. It was another bar fight for a Celtics team that has become accustomed to them over the past two seasons. Even in the wake of that game, the major national story remains the same...
In his 14 years in the league, Paul Pierce has seen it all - the ups and downs, the losing and the winning, the rise and fall. It just wouldn't be right to see the Truth and all that he's worked hard for winding down on either a rebuilding Celtics team or a contending opposing one. It just ain't right. Truth belongs to a fighting, competing ballclub right here in...

More Snow, Please
It's such a fun year in the Asso- ciation, people. LeBron James and Kevin Durant have both taken their games up another notch, which seemed more or less impossible last year; it's not too much of a stretch to say that they might be authoring the two best individual seasons in league history right now. The Knicks, of all teams, turned into a sharing and...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- All in all, Monday proved to be a painful night for the Boston Celtics.
Not only did the Celtics have their seven-game losing streak snapped at the hands of the NBA's worst team, but they might have suffered yet another costly injury in their 94-91 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Backup guard Leandro Barbosa, who has seen increased playing time since...
Celtics 116, Lakers 95
It took all of 49 seconds for the Celtics to dispatch the Lakers at the TD Garden on Thursday night. Sure, they led by approximately ten points for most of the game, but in the final minutes of the third quarter Boston put the game out of reach with a 14-3 run. Jason Terry started the spurt with a triple, Jeff Green provided a thunderous dunk before sprinting...
