Found November 13, 2012 on Celtics Life:
In an NBA.com article this morning by David Aldridge (scroll down past the Laker talk), Keyon Dooling tells the story of a nervous breakdown he sustained this summer, and his subsequent week long stay in a mental institution.  He details the experiences that led to his decision to retire from the Celtics, which all stem from sexual abuse he suffered as a child. "It started when I was five, and it happened multiple times," Dooling said. "It happened with men and women. I was abused by my brother's friend. I was five; he was about 13 or 14. But also young ladies, older ladies in our neighborhood. In my opinion, I thought I was cool at the time. I thought I was in the in crowd. I thought that was how it was supposed to be. And I was sadly mistaken. I didn't even realize the pattern of behavior I had taken on at such an early age." Excerpts from Aldridge's explanation of what happened earlier this year: Dooling was exhibiting behaviors familiar to so...

Comments from the Other Side - Bulls 11/12

Bulls fans have always hated Rondo.  Love how they were hoping to keep his assist streak from continuing and then said they cheated to keep it going.  The Rondo photo cracked me up.  Too funny.   Of course there are the  usual ref complaints and the "old Celtics" comments.   I hope you enjoy today's comments... I think the Bulls win. The Celtics aren't...

Jason Terry is a Shooter - Awesome!

I love these NOC Jason Terry is a Celtic videos. Shooting 91% from midrange is pretty incredible. Of course he didn't have a hand in his face or a defender running at him, but as we've seen in recent games, he's pretty good even with a defender on him. I don't know about you, but I'm very glad that Jason Terry is a Celtic! [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Five things Celtics must do to win tonight

The celtics are coming off their biggest win of the season in Milwaukee Saturday night. After just one off day, the celtics are back in action tonight in the Windy City to face the 4-2 Chicago Bulls. The celtics are just 3-3, which I would call disappointing. Whenever we get down on them, they bounce back. But when we got to confident in them, like after they beat the Wizards twice...
