KG shares with Craig Sager that he likes the Celtics team. I'm with KG. I like this team and hope that Danny just adds a couple of nice pieces or makes a very minor trade. I hate all the blow it up trade ideas I'm seeing. I still say that KG and Paul Pierce have earned the right to retire as Celtics. Anyway, after that, KG once again launches a critique on Craig Sager's choice of suits. Always funny when Sager interviews KG. When KG retires, I bet Craig will miss him. [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Rumor: Paul Pierce is the key to getting Josh Smith

With less than 30 hours remaining until Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline, trade chatter involving the Boston Celtics has been turned up a notch. News that the Atlanta Hawks are “definitely” trying to move Smith this week surely brought a smile upon the faces of the Celtics’ brass. It’s been no secret that the 27-year-old forward has been a long-time target of the team...

Paul Pierce, Celtics Will Be Tested With Road-Heavy Schedule After All-Star Break

The arc on Paul Pierce‘s jump shot flattened out and the bounce in Kevin Garnett‘s legs on second efforts disappeared as the second half wore on. By the end, when the two proud Celtics combined to shoot 1-for-7 from the field in the fourth quarter of an arduous loss to the Nuggets, almost nobody in a green jersey had anything left to give. The fact that every Celtic save Garnett...

Paul Pierce is the new Rajon Rondo, and in the best way possible

Before Rajon Rondo was lost for the season he was dominating the NBA in triple doubles, with 5 (no other Celtic had any).  Since Rondo's been gone Paul Pierce has taken over that role by recording 2 triple doubles of his own (the only player in the NBA with more than one in that time span), which puts him tied for second in the league on the season behind Rondo.   Over the...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Nuggets 2/19

The Celtics, despite putting up a pretty good fight, lost tonight in Denver by the score of 97-90. They didn't go down easily and I believe that they deserved to win this game. But it is what is. Nothing we can do about it. Luckily we should be over it by tomorrow night. Tonight's USOTN goes to the horrible shooting performance of Paul Pierce. Pierce had a decent 10 points...

Top 5 Boston Celtics of all-time: Does Garnett make the list?

When talking about the best five Boston Celtics’ players ever you are arguably assembling the greatest collection of players from any single team in NBA history.  The Celtics have won a league high 17 NBA Championships as they have dominated the competition during their championship runs.  From the ‘Big Three’ to the Larry Bird era, and all the way back to the days of Bob...

Nuggets vs Celtics - Round Two

Last time these teams met, KG and Pierce's clutch shots helped the C's to a victory. Though the trade deadline hoopla is the current hot topic of the NBA, there is still games to be played. Tonight the Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets meet in the mile-high city for their second and final meeting this season. The last time these teams met, they were holding the longest...

Celtics-Lakers Live: Paul Pierce, Celts Try to Get Back on Winning Track Against Old Rival in Los Angeles

8 a.m. ET: The return to games that matter is testing the Celtics. Coming off a pre-All-Star break run of eight wins in nine games, the Celtics face a West Coast back-to-back that threatens to expose their lack of depth. The Celtics (28-25) ran out of energy in Tuesday’s track meet in Denver, and after a quick turnaround they take on the mercurial Lakers (25-29). Kobe Bryant...

Josh Smith For Paul Pierce?

Tough tough decisions for Danny Ainge up in Boston. There were offers on the table for KG, more specifically: DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe from the Clippers. But the thing is with Garnett, he’s got a No Trade clause in his contract. No unless he’s willing to go, he can’t be traded. And we already have KG on record saying he “bleeds green.” Well now Josh Smith is on the...

Celtics-Nuggets Live: Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Slated to Suit Up for Boston in Denver, For Now

8 a.m. ET: The Celtics ruin everything. A little over a week ago, the Nuggets were just rolling along, winners of nine straight and looking like one of the most formidable teams in the Western Conference. Since dropping a triple-overtime game in Boston, though, the Nuggets have seen their losing streak grow to three games and lurch into the post-All-Star break schedule just hoping...

Report: Paul Pierce May Need to Be Traded for Celtics to Acquire Josh Smith

The Hawks are reportedly telling teams Josh Smith will be moved before Thursday’s trade deadline. The Celtics are continuing to show interest in the Atlanta forward. On Saturday, rumors of a proposed Smith for Jeff Green and Brandon Bass trade leaked. That may not be enough to acquire Smith, though. The Celtics would need to part with Paul Pierce to get the trade done, according...

Report: Celtics Will Also Trade Paul Pierce If They’re Able to Move Kevin Garnett Before Deadline

The Celtics could be headed for a seismic shake-up, and it could be happening very soon. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has a nugget-filled post about the Celtics and their trading prospects with the Thursday trade deadline looming. While he reports a potential deal that would send Kevin Garnett to the Los Angeles Clippers is dead for now, it could certainly be revitalized...

Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce Turning Back the Clock to Keep Celtics Contending Without Rajon Rondo

Kevin Garnett didn’t exactly make the dramatic All-Star game exit many Celtics fans had been hoping for when he cryptically leaked last week that this would be his last appearance in the event. He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans. The big man does, after all, have a surging...

Comments from the Other Side - Nuggets 2/19

The Celtics hung with the Nuggets in spite of the thin air, being short handed, and taking 20 fewer free throws.   I love all the comments about the number of Celtics fans at the game.  My favorite comments though is the series where one fan wonders if they can ever get a call and another says the officiating is fixed and a third reminds them that the Nuggets had 28 free throws...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tomorrow - Nuggets 2/19

Finally, All-Star Weekend has concluded. What is, at least in my opinion, one of the most pointless events in American sports has ended. Now we can start watching meaningful games again. Tomorrow the Celtics will resume their season in Denver against a tough Nuggets team. As you probably remember, the C's beat the Nuggets in dramatic fashion last week at the Garden. Let's...

Boston Celtics Face Most Important Trade Deadline in Franchise History

With the NBA trade deadline knocking on the doorstep, the Boston Celtics have a ton of decisions to weigh in, which could essentially make this the toughest deadline in Celtics history. Currently, the Celtics sit in utter silence after storming rumors consisting of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce this past week, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t talking trading places with players...
