With the NBA championship series in full swing and talk about Tim Duncan's place among the game's all-time greats being bandied about, it seems a good time to review the top 10 Finals contests in the storied career of Celtic legend Larry Bird.
5) Game 4, 1985 Finals. In an extremely hostile Forum atmosphere, Boston trailed 2-1 and faced a must-win situation due to the new implementation of the 2-3-2 format which promised a potential clinching fifth game in LA on the horizon.
The Celtics trailed 90-83 when Larry put on perhaps the greatest three-minute display of all-around brilliance in Finals history to single-handedly will Boston back from the brink of elimination.
First he blocked a Bob McAdoo jumper from the side and forced a jump ball, which he won. He then buried a 22-footer from the right wing. Larry then grabbed an offensive rebound, put in a left-hande...

Rajon Rondo's style of play is unique. He is a passer and also, he is a point guard who can rebound the ball. A lot of people say that he needs to develop a jump shot so that he can choose to drive the ball or shoot the ball. In the playoffs, Rondo's game goes to another level and he becomes the best point guard in the league. He does many things that most point guards...

These days, it's hard to take what Danny says at face value and run with it. After all, he did assure us that Doc was definitely coming back just a couple of weeks ago and it's been nothing but speculation that he won't ever since. But, this time, I think he has a point. Rajon Rondo is a very smart kid (He does Algebra in his head, after all). And he saw how well the...

Like sands through the hourglass, these are the Doc days of our lives. So the roller coaster ride continues for Doc, the fans and the rest of the NBA world. While Gary Tanguay went on his “Uno Sports Tonight” show on CSNNE and called Doc a “diva” and said he was holding the team hostage, Steve Bulpett on the Boston Herald did a little bit more dirty work and delivered...
The domino effect is locked-and-loaded for the Boston Celtics.

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo is a Connect Four expert and he proved it by beating basketball writer Brian Kamenetzky and Sal Masekela, the host of the Red Bull Signature Series, Bobby Fisher-style, at the same time.
It has to be the freakishly-long fingers that gives him the edge.
Just for fun, some NBA 2K14 covers that Celtics fans would like to see. Via my pal LoveGarnett:
If Boston Celtics PG can’t make a full recovery from his torn ACL injury from last season, he always can turn to playing Connect Four for a living. Rondo showed off his Connect Four talents beating two basketball writers Brian Kamenetzky and Sal Masekela.
