Found June 09, 2012 on CLNS Radio:
Win or go home… so many implications for the Boston Celtics and Miami Heat in tonight’s game 7. Win or loss, the CLNS Post Game Crew will have all the angles covered for you. We hope that you will join us to celebrate or call in to commiserate. Either way, Celtics fans have been united [...]

Garnett, Celtics defined by more than age

On March 31, Minnesota wanted so much. Too much. No matter that Kevin Garnett had taken the Target Center court three times already as a Celtic. No matter that he'd been gone for five years; that he should have been more a memory than a source of such crippling insecurity. He was still Kevin Garnett, after all, but these were different desires, different hopes for the man who...

Your Morning Dump... Where Doc doesn't want to let go

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. "I don't know," said coach Doc Rivers. "Obviously, we're all smart... I think we're going to wait and see what happens with free agency and all that stuff. I honest to gosh hadn'...

LeBron James thumps the Celtics for 45 points.

BOSTON- We define clutch in so many ways. Those ways often are defined but what the individual has not accomplished more so than what he has In Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, LeBron James was as clutch as clutch can be. To read this feature and watch over two minutes of footage from James Game 6 performance, please click the link below.

As the Big Three Era Concludes, What’s Next for the Boston Celtics?

Last night, in what very well could have been (and should have been) the last game of the Big Three era in Boston, the Celtics fell to the Miami Heat in game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals, 101-88. But do not let the score fool you. The Celtics and Heat were locked up in [...]

LeBron James' Blockbuster Performance Will Not Force Widespread Changes Defensively for Celtics

With the whole season riding on one game, the Celtics are not scrapping their gameplan for something new and entirely different in response to LeBron James' 45-point classic in Game 6. James has had jaw-dropping offensive performances before, many against the Celtics, so coach Doc Rivers is familiar with the many tools in James' kit. Not since 2009 had James gone on a scoring...

Paul Pierce For Rudy Gay, Could Be A Win-Win Deal For Grizzlies And Celtics

The best trades in any professional sport, are transactions that help all teams involved and a deal that I touched upon in an earlier article, just might be a move that could help two franchises in the Association. The deal that I proposed, would send Boston Celtics All-Star forward to the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for their talented young forward Rudy Gay. The trade could help...

Ray Allen Will Have Surgery, Wants To Continue Career

Ray Allen will soon undergo surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle.

Chris Bosh Indispensible at Both Ends of Court for Heat in Deciding Win Over Celtics

LeBron James had just finished off another playoff masterpiece, but through his lensless, thick-rimmed glasses, he would not deem himself the most important player in the Heat's victory. While James scored 31 points in the 101-88 win over the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals and succeeded in getting the monkey off his back for at least one more playoff round...

Fan douses James after Heat's Game 6 over Celtics

Miami's LeBron James, who scored 45 points on Thursday night in Boston, had what appeared to be a beer poured on him after Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. James was leaving the TD Bank Garden court after Miami's 98-79 victory when he was doused through a mesh awning toward entrance to the visitor's locker room. He turned to wipe off his shoulder and kept walking...

What's next, LeBron?

To reach in to the bag of cliches, LeBron James delivered a statement game Thursday night. He dug down deep, answered his critics and kept his team alive. He did what he's done before. With 45 points, 15 rebounds and a look on his face that indicated he could have posted 60 and 25, had he needed to, LeBron reminded us all that he's the most uniquely gifted basketball...

Finals matchup a dream for NBA, fans

Give the People What They Want was the title of a 1981 Kinks album. It's also what the NBA has delivered for the Finals. All season, the June pairing fans have wanted to see has been Oklahoma City against Miami. The Thunder have young stars and the Heat have more established ones. Both teams play an exciting brand of ball. And there is the continuing quest of Miami forward...

James huge Putback Dunk

He finished the game was 45 points, 15 rebounds, and 5 assists. His 45 points are the most of any player so far in these 2012 NBA playoffs. James scored 30 of those points in the 1st half. There is no question if the game was a blowout and James didn’t sit late in the 4th quarter he could have went for 60 points or so. Two of his 45 came on a monstrous dunk. Chris... dismisses Celtics, hopefully the SWAG sparks 'em

Wow. It didn't take a genius to realize that any team with LeBron James and the ESPN/NBA marketing machine behind them was almost guaranteed a game six victory on Thursday night, but this is a bit much. The store was preemptively selling "Beat the Heat" shirts yesterday. Not in Celtic green Thunder blue (if that is a thing.) BEFORE GAME 7 OF THE...

Oklahoma City May Be Getting Ahead of Themselves, Are Selling 'Beat the Heat' Shirts

Somebody forgot to tell the Oklahoma City Thunder's marketing department that LeBron James' eruption in Game 6 did not equal two wins for the Miami Heat. How else to explain the appearance of a "Beat the Heat" T-shirt now for sale on the Thunder's team store website? No "Beat the Celtics" matching T-shirt was readily apparent on the site, so it appears...
