The NBA Passionista:
The thing about Kevin Garnett is, he likes to talk. A lot. He also loves reveling in the fact people hate him, or tries to, and that drives him. However, the 6’11″ herculean Boston Celtic had a few choice words for mainstream media covering the NBA after Boston clinched the Atlantic Division Wednesday when they [...]

Kevin Garnett has a lot of great things to say about Avery Bradley, you can tell he's proud of how he has developed and emerged as, really, one of the most important members of this Celtics team. Plus, he hints he needs to be "rewarded". Agree?

The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn is reporting that according to Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett “probably” won’t play tonight. With Rondo, Allen, and Pietrus already not making the trip to Atlanta, this represents a philosophical decision by the Celtics that rest is more important than home court advantage in the first round. [...]

Since tonight’s game in Atlanta could very well decide who receives home court advantage in the first round, it’s safe to say Doc Rivers has officially entered “I’m really banking on the fact that we can beat Atlanta or Orlando on the road” mode. Either that or he’s banking on Avery Bradley scoring 45 points, Sean Williams and Greg Stiemsma combining for 17 blocked...

With Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo and Mickael Pietrus already not traveling to Atlanta, Doc Rivers has also decided to hold out Paul Pierce AND Kevin Garnett so they can get some rest.
So.... this will be a hoot, won't it? Here's my guess at the starting line up
Kevin Garnett recently called creating chemistry one of the toughest things to do in basketball, but these Celtics have managed to build an environment in which 15 players care about wins more than anything else. Doc Rivers does not want to threaten that growing bond, which is why he spent additional time investigating Sean Williams’ personality before the Celtics acquired him...

(Fast forward to 2:25 for the good stuff)Kevin Garnett repeatedly bowed when the TD Garden’s PA announcer called Bill Russell’s name and beckoned the shot-block king forward to accept his honor as part of the 1961-62 championship team’s 50th anniversary celebration. I might have bowed too, but I was busy trying to hold my iPhone steady so I could record the moment. Believe...

In what might shock most people outside of Boston, especially after the Celtics went into the All-Star Break with a 15-17 record, the C’s clinched the Atlantic Division title tonight with a 102-98 win over the Orlando Magic. Going into the 2011/12 NBA season, it was generally accepted that the Carmelo Anthony-led New York Knicks would cruise to the division crown over a pretty...
Very few people considered Avery Bradley a candidate to break out and help inspire a second-half Boston Celtics surge, but Kevin Garnett saw the potential a lot earlier than most. As soon as Garnett began playing pickup games with Bradley, he noticed the way the youngster played defense, the fast-twitch muscles that moved more quickly than most everyone else’s, the work ethic...

A year and a half ago when the ratings at WEEI began to falter, Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti offered something refreshing. It was an alternative to what had become the Big Show’s stale rhetoric on WEEI. Also, by starting out as an FM station and adding the Bruins broadcast rights, 98.5 immediately gained street credibility with the hockey fan. Timing...
