Listen to internet radio with CLNSRadio on Blog Talk Radio(Listen at 9 p.m. ET with the widget above, call in at 347-215-7771 and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.)Like the body part that pushed Jared Sullinger down NBA Draft boards to the 21st selection, the King of the Court podcast is back tonight at 9 p.m. ET.Last week’s episode was canceled when Hurricane Sandy quite literally almost burned my house down, but now we have three games (and a slew of topics) to discuss — is Boston’s bench better than it’s played? Will Doc Rivers settle on a rotation at any point this decade? Would Jason Terry predict a turkey on his next three bowls even after eight straight gutter balls? How did Jared Sullinger’s first start unfold? Why are the Celtics more than 20 points per 100 possessions worse with Jeff Green on the court? Is anybody even listening to me?I’ll be joined by co-host Ty Ray and guest Michael P. Nye, whose debut book, “Strategies Against Extinction,” was flipping awesome even though it took me four tries to spell extinction correctly. Nye’s also a huge Celtics fan; he often writes me spectacular emails about small-ball and Jeff Green. Said emails normally reference Marvin Williams, which is a little weird, but I can get over it because Nye’s really phenomenal at writing.

Your Morning Dump… Where Jared Sullinger is getting the rookie treatment

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. He has picked up fouls when officials didn’t want to whistle Kevin Garnett or Paul Pierce, he’s gotten them for merely raising his hands and standing in the same spot, he’s drawn them simply for being a 20...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Garnett/Sullinger ticket is a winning one

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I thought he did a great job,” Garnett said of Sullinger’s first start during the Celtics [team stats]’ win in Washington last Saturday. “He’s a no-nonsense guy. Not that I’m shooting down the other...

KG compares Sullinger to Perkins

Kevin Garnett says Jared Sullinger reminds him of Kendrick Perkins when it comes to basketball IQ and unselfishness. — Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 6, 2012 Obviously a pretty big compliment by the Big Ticket. KG has been searching for a partner in crime down low since Perkins was traded. Shaq couldn't get back on the court due to his foot. J.O. needed to be wrapped...

It's not easy wearing the green

The Celtics are very fortunate to have a few days off after the debacle in D.C that resulted in their first win of the season.  The lads in green are starting to realize that it takes more to win than just putting on a Celtic jersey. The Celtics are all saying the right things, that they are a work in progress. As we all are I dare say.  However it is more than that.  If you...

Celtics survive Wizards (barely) 89-86

Well that was better, I guess.  The Celtics survived a nail-biter against the Washington Wizards (WITHOUT John Wall and Nene) after they blew a sizable lead. But I’ll TRY to be positive and accept our first win of the season on the second night of a back-to-back, and chalk it up to the Celtics playing down to inferior competition. Let’s get to the recap:Sullinger got the...

Celtics win ugly, beating Wizards reserves by 3

(We had a late scratch for the recap, but longtime reader Jenda has stepped in with a guest recap). Let's start with bad news. The first quarter was a fluke. Randy Wittman and his assistants still have to gel together as a coaching staff and they take a little longer to get into the game. They did so in second quarter and outscored the Celts 30-23. Most damage was done inside...

Thoughts from last night's "win"

My sister and I with a pair of Rondo's game shoes! I was lucky enough to attend the game last night in DC. I went with my mom and sister and had awesome seats about 10 rows up. This gave me a chance to really watch the Celtics up close and personal, and what I saw was a team that is still working on finding its identity.  The Wizards are a terrible basketball team. I said...

Recap: C’s hold on to win ugly one in D.C.

Celtics came-out of the gate on fire tonight. KG was hitting shots early & often, the defense was focused & guys had a spring in their step. Rajon was distributing the ball well from the jump- he had 5 assists in the first quarter alone to help get the C’s out to an early 26-12 lead after 1. The Wizards bench then got Washington right back into it behind Kevin Seraphin’s...

CelticsLife 5-on-5. First Thoughts on the Boston Celtics

First of many, Let's do this. Hey everyone, I know everybody has seen the popular "5 on 5" series on the ESPN website or "3 on 3" on the ESPN Boston website. Well this year, we are going to have our own, the CelticsLife 5-on-5. The Boston Celtics are currently 1-2 and there has been cause for concern. I think the media is blowing things out of proportion...

Celtics get first win over Wiz-kids but what does it mean?

The Celtics beat the Washington Wizards last night, but it was not a feel good story.  Boston ran out to a 16 point lead, then just went through the motions and were fortunate to escape with a win. Is it time to push the panic button? Of course not.  Last season the team had no chemistry issues, but still crawled out of the gates with an 0-3 start.  This year with essentially...
