I guess we can now upgrade Green’s medical issues from “curious” to “can somebody tell me what the hell’s going on with our $9 million per season sixth (or seventh) man?”P.S. — Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce missed practice again today with injuries. Not the best training camp so far for the boys in green.
BEST OF MAXIM
In the first two GreenLab series we delved into the various options that the Celtics and Rajon Rondo run to defeat the "Under-Screen" and "Sagging" defenses. Those are the two most common methods that opponents utilize to negate Rondo's offensive strengths, hoping to force him into his biggest weakness: outside shooting.
Scoring is not Rondo's primary...
Think back to last May, when the Boston Celtics and the "Big Four" were going up against the superteam Miami Heat in the second round of the playoffs. In what was a mostly forgettable series from a Celtics perspective, there was essentially one lasting memory -- that of Rajon Rondo appearing to gruesomely dislocate his left elbow, only to return later in the game and help...
Good news on the Rondo front. But Jeff Green’s the pressing issue right now. Green is scheduled to meet with more doctors today and we should learn more about the small forward’s situation by tonight’s scrimmage, which begins at 6 p.m.Unfortunately, I’ll probably be watching my little brother’s high school basketball game when the Green news breaks. So follow me on Twitter...
If Rajon Rondo is telling the truth, the Celtics shouldn't trade him. Ever.
If Rondo is sincere when he acknowledges...
Kevin Garnett is not one to hide emotions, whether he is upset about losing games in Minnesota, furious with Charlie Villanueva for being Charlie Villanueva, angry at Channing Frye for standing near his personal space, disappointed by David Stern’s decision to compact training camp, or letting everyone know that anything is possible after winning an NBA title.So when Dennis ...
If you’ve wondered why there have been whispers of Rajon Rondo being on the trading block for about a year, we might have an example of why. (We’re not talking a Rondo for Chris Paul trade here, that is just smart basketball by the Celtics and Danny Ainge. The Celtics have listened to far more…
I was disgusted when I heard the out-burst of Stephen A. Smith were returning to ESPN. However, he does seem to get the recent comments of Kevin Garnett, regarding the shortened NBA-everything. I returned to my disgust of Stephen A. as soon as he described Paul Pierce as a different man and aloof since winning [...]
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.
The Celtics coach was told that Paul Pierce said this season's reserves are more experienced and professional, as opposed to last season's bench, which Pierce said was too immature and inconsistent...
Jeff Green remained unavailable for practice yesterday while awaiting medical test results. Green, Paul Pierce (foot), and Rajon Rondo (ankle) will miss tonight’s intrasquad scrimmage, but Rondo could return for Sunday’s exhibition opener in Toronto, according to coach Doc Rivers.

The Celtics star remembers, back in the days before Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, being the injured star of a team that lost 18 straight games. Paul Pierce shared some perspective on starring on bad teams with CSNNE.com's Jessica Camerato:
"When you’ve got Chris Paul down in New Orleans and Dwight (Howard) down there (in Orlando) and not really a great supporting cast,...
