Team USA survived a scare on Saturday, outlasting Lithuania 99-94. A win is a win, but Kevin Love thought an apology was is order. Shortly after Team USA, which actually trailed in the fourth quarter, overcame Lithuania's upset bid, Love sent out the following tweet. Shaq on the free throw line today!!! My bad USA. Good win for us. Needed a game like that. On to the next. â...
With the dust settling on an active offseason for the Boston Celtics a clearer picture of the final roster heading into the 2012-13 season is coming into view.

"Ray made the best decision for him," Pierce told the team's official website Thursday in his first public offseason comments.

If it wasn't for...
Former Celtics 1st round pick and current Rocket JaJuan Johnson issued his first public comments about the multi-player trade that sent him to Houston for Courtney Lee:
âIt was a good opportunity the first year, and it was fun,â Johnson said of playing for the Celtics. âBut thatâs what it is. Itâs part of the business. Thatâs something that you learn early on.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have made their fair share of noise this offseason after showing they could possibly contend for a playoff spot. They had solid play from the point guard position, as well as their bigs. Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and Nikola Pekovic had their team playing very well until various injuries led to a late season skid.
Late last year we got a tip from one of our readers in Rome that Kevin Garnett was part of an investment group purchasing AS Roma Soccer Club. The Boston Globe later confirmed the report (didn't give us any credit, but whatever), but today the Globe is reporting that the NBA blocked KG's ownership bid.Kevin Garnett has a strong rooting interest in soccer, Chelsea and AC Milan...

Paul Pierce gave his first interview of the offseason to Molly McGrath over at Celtics.com where he offered his thoughts on a multitude of topics, including the departure of former Celtic Ray Allen:âItâs going to be a little weird.

Anytime the Celtics lose, the season is not successful, and it (pondering retirement) was very tough to think of leaving on an unsuccessful note.- M.L. Carr after losing in the 1985 Finals to the Lakers. This week in WTHHT, we remember the career of the energectic and proud M.L. Carr.Â As I've done in the past, as often as the opportunity presents itself, I read M.L.'s autobiography...
Few players in Celtics history retain as much love and respect as Larry Joe Bird. In spite of the fact that Larry has been coach, GM and President of the Indiana Pacers since 1997, Celtics fans still see him as a forever Celtic. I've been thinking a lot about Larry lately between Lex's articles from the 1980 season over on Lex Nihil Novi and re-watching several of the...
I've written a couple articles lately about how Red put character first in choosing his players and how important signing players with good character is to developing chemistry on a team. I said in one article that I thought Danny did a good job in bringing in that type of player for this year's Celtics.
Today, in the Sun News, there is evidence of this very thing. We...
