Found October 18, 2012 on Celtics Life:
For those wondering if Leandro Barbosa will be playing in tonight's Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets game, the answer is no (according to CSNNE's Sherrod Blakely, who was asked about it on Twitter earlier today). His deal has not been finalized yet, so until everything is in order, we won't be seeing him on the sidelines or the court. @kimoxxx No. Barbosa deal with the #Celtics not finalized yet. — A.

Boston Celtics / Zombie Slayers

Two things I love, and have been anticipating for months now, have finally started this past week:  Boston Celtics basketball and AMC’s phenomenal TV show Walking Dead.  Now I’m not sure if the show’s Executive Producer Glen Mazzara and NBA Commissioner David Stern collaborated to bring me this confluence of visual ecstasy, but whoever is [...]

Photo Gallery: Celtics vs Nets

Celtics fans finally got to see some great hoops last night as the C’s outlasted the Nets 115-85 in Brooklyn. One of the hot topics on Twitter was Jeff Green’s choice of kicks.

This Drunk Dancing Boston Celtics Fan Is Pumped For The NBA Preseason

A.B. Most fans don’t get too excited about the preseason. I doubt this guy is one of them. While he’s polishing his Gino dance moves, the Celtics are trying to polish their game before heading into the regular season. Sporting a hardly excitable 1-3 record thus far, the Celtics starters have looked mediocre at best. But here’s a stat that even the Dancing with the Stars wannabe...

How Danny Ainge Won The Off-Season

The Celtics did not play a single game from June 9th when they came up a quarter short against the Heat in Game 7, until they traveled to Europe last week, but make no mistake, Danny Ainge won the off-season. Let’s flashback to late February for a moment, the C’s were floundering a few games below .500 and the trade deadline was quickly approaching. The Green looked old, slow...

NBA 2012-13 preseason: The best players in the Atlantic Division

Celtics Live Blog: Rajon Rondo, C's Make First Visit to Brooklyn to Take on Nets

9 a.m. ET: Paul Pierce could not have looked much sharper than he did Tuesday, when the Celtics forward scored 29 points in a one-point loss to the Nets. Those same Nets host Pierce and the Celtics on Thursday at the newly minted Barclays Center.
