If they listen, Kevin Garnett will teach them. If they cease to listen, he will treat them as if they’re wearing human repellent and an invisibility cloak (or — Big Daddy reference alert — Julian’s invisibility sunglasses).So far, so good for the two young big men Garnett has been charged with mentoring. Just a week into training camp, Garnett likes Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo and believes they are hungry to improve — a lot like Glen Davis was when he arrived in Boston.*“Jared and Melo are very attentive kids, they listen. This is very similar to Baby, very similar to Leon, (Kendrick Perkins). Eager to learn, like normal young guys,” said Garnett. “They are very eager. I’ve been blessed since I’ve been here to be able to give some of the knowledge I have to the young guys I played with.“These two are no different,” he said. “They work very, very hard, they’re very competitive.

The Boston Celtics begin their quest for banner #18 at 2:00pm EST on Friday, October 5th in Istanbul, Turkey. You can watch the game on CSNHD/WEEI.

Avery Bradley talks about his rehab and coming back strong. He's ahead of expectations. He's begun to shoot around but no contact yet. He's been able to do walk throughs and learn the plays. Wants to play it safe so that the injury doesn't re-occur.

These Turkish teams are not to be taken lightly. Despite a warning from Dionte Christmas, an alumnus of the Turkish Basketball League, that Fenerbahce Ulker would be no pushover, the Celtics never seemed able to get in rhythm on Friday. Boston's first exhibition foe of the 2012-13 season controlled the pace of the game, got to the free throw line more effectively and protected...
Rajon Rondo makes some sweet moves with the basketball, but even a behind-the-back pass may not sweeter than the Rondo cookies reportedly found in the media room at Ulker Sports Arena in Istanbul. Rondo cookies apparently are Turkish treats that are not found in the U.S. The Celtics are in Turkey as part of the NBA's international preseason tour, and the elusive (at least in...
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo hopes to lead the 2012-’13 team to the organization’s 18th championship.
One of the central questions as the Boston Celtics kick off their 2012-’13 season is whether point guard Rajon Rondo can be the strong leader the organization expects him to become.
Rondo held workouts last month in California with most of the members of the team...
One of my favorite YouTube accounts has done it again. CelticsPatriotsMan has made a nice video to get you ready for the upcoming season. It’s called “Boston Celtics Let the Games Begin 2013“. Enjoy:

We’ve made several jokes about how the Celtics continue to use phrases like “tear their heads off” or “kill if we have to” in reference to their opponents. We’ve also observed that, as motivation, Doc keeps showing the team clips of last year’s Eastern Conference Finals as a way to get extra fire burning in the stomachs of both the vets and the newcomers.I always...
There is not a Celtics fan alive that does not get giddy watching that. It is the single greatest play in the history of a team that has seen 17 banners raised to the rafters, and countless mind-boggling plays that made those championships a reality.
There is so much that makes this the best.
First and foremost, it is executed by one of the franchise's Gods, Larry...
"That's what Boston is all about. It's not about one guy. It's about everybody. Whatever my job is going to be -- if I have to get into the game and kill somebody, I kill him." Darko Milicic
With that statement KG has likely come up with a list of targets. Here's my best guess.
1) Ray Allen
2) Ray Allen
