Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett signed a three-year, $36 million contract extension this offseason. But following the Celtics win over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, Garnett hinted that
BEST OF MAXIM

Here’s my loose transcription of Doc Rivers appearance this morning on WEEI.
On the timing of the All-Star break:
We can go both ways with the break. We’re playing well now. But with the body count we have, I couldn’t have found a better time.
You just kinda coach em… and they kinda play.
You have to coach the guys that are playing. You have to get the guys that you expect...
Kevin Garnett sat down with the NBA TV crew in Houston today as part of their ASW coverage. His comments after Wednesday’s win against the Bulls were immediately brought-up. Garnett backpedaled a bit when Steve Smith said: “You said this is your last one..why?” Ticket replied: “I can’t say that I’m gonna be an all-star next year-I didn’t say I wasn’t gonna play...
Paul Pierce is just awesome at life. Not only is the guy one of the greatest Celtics of all time, but now he is also helping out his fellow Celtic fans in the love department. "Pierce tweeted his gift suggestion, a “Celeb Call” from none other than himself."
Valentines Day is an awkward holiday. Guys feel a lot of pressure to go all out because those are the expectations...
Who knew KG still (or ever) had this kind of handle?
As the Celtics were starting their dramatic 4th quarter rally against the Bulls last night, Kevin Garnett delivered what for me was his most entertaining and impressive highlight of the season. Garnett decided he was going to be the point guard.
He held the ball near half court, directed traffic, and called out a play; just...
Did Kevin Garnett unintentionally announce his retirement tonight? When the 17-year veteran was asked about this weekend’s All-Star game following the Celtics’ 71-69 win over the Bulls, he responded by saying it would be his last. When asked why, the Celtic, who has two years and $23.5 million remaining on his contract after this season, said “Ya’ll don’t know what I know...
BOSTON — Already short on bodies, the Celtics were almost another man down on Wednesday.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers offered Kevin Garnett, the 36-year-old center who will be taking part in his 15th All-Star game this weekend, a chance to sit out the game against the Bulls to get some much-needed rest. As much as Garnett admitted he could use the respite, one look around the locker...
Kevin Garnett signed a three-year contract extension with the Boston Celtics this past offseason, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he intends to play in the NBA until he is 39 years old. The Big Ticket’s numbers have remained roughly the same for the past three or four seasons, but it’s obvious his body is slowly breaking down. Despite that, he is still one of the more popular...
Paul Pierce Leads Celtics to Victory
Wednesday night the Celtics were able to seal the deal against the Chicago Bulls to wrap up the first part of the season before the All-Star break. The Celtics beat the Bulls by a score of 71-69 to make it eight victories in their last nine contests.
It was not the prettiest win but the Celtics were able to hold on for the victory. It was clear...
Sweet Jesus, it's 1 am on a Friday night, yet the rumors keep rolling in. But this time is a little different. This time it's Woj (esteemed Yahoo NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski). The proposed deal: Kevin Garnett for Clippers PG Eric Bledsoe and C DeAndre Jordan.
Here's an excerpt from Woj's article (co-written with Marc Spears) (link).
The Boston Celtics and Los...
Josh Smith has again been linked to Boston by a respected NBA reporter.
I keep hearing Josh Smith's primary destination is Boston.— Gery Woelfel (@GeryWoelfel) February 14, 2013
"Primary destination" can mean trade destination or as a free agent.
It's been well documented the immensely talented, immensely frustrating Smith is a good friend of Rajon Rondo....
The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers are still discussing a trade of Kevin Garnett and Eric Bledsoe, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. But this deal would also include shot-swatting center DeAndre Jordan instead of Caron Butler.
Sources tell Woj that the Celtics and Clippers have been in "regular contact about the possibility." The big hurdle...
I love how they keep on wanting Bolt to give props to other teams and players, but it's all about Kevin Garnett and the Celtics for the world's fastest man.
Big thanks to Celtics Lifer Tia Compenser for the video tip.
One more game left, until the well rested break. The Boston Celtics finish the first half of the season, trying to get revenge on a Bulls team that beat us by a lucky shot by Marco Belinelli. But my point of this article is not about that game, but it is for the Celtics to rest up and get ready for the crazy second half of the season.
We are so many players down, I have lost track...

Defense ruled the day, but it was Boston's offense that sealed the game down the stretch.In last night’s nail-biter against Chicago, points were predictably at a premium between two very talented, very defense-oriented teams. So when the Celtics were able to produce field goals on three consecutive possessions late in the fourth quarter, giving themselves a lead they would...
