BOSTON -- Throughout training camp and the preseason, the Celtics saluted Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and others for sacrificing minutes and shots for the shot at a championship. When Terry signed, he assumed he would split time at shooting guard with Ray Allen and Avery Bradley. When Lee agreed to a sign-and-trade from Houston, he was aware of players ahead of him in Boston's backcourt depth chart. One thing Terry and Lee knew, however, was that they would play. They might not get 30 minutes or 15 shots every game, but they were going to be a major part of the Celtics' plans this season. They would get a chance to contribute. They were not merely some insurance policy stuffed at the end of the bench. Leandro Barbosa has no such guarantee. The former NBA Sixth Man of the Year, whose signing was announced Thursday and who stepped onto the parquet floor at the TD Garden for the first time to warm up on Sunday, agreed to come to Boston with no assur...

Your Morning Dump… Doc says Jason Terry is slow as

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. “It’s definitely a veteran thing. I learned from a great guy in George Gervin in our workouts in the summer. He tells me, ‘Slow is quick.’ And I had to really listen to what he said. It’s changing speeds...
WHAT A JOKE

Jason Terry, Christmas prank Celtics

Jason Terry is a gregarious fellow who found a kindred spirit in Dionte Christmas during the Temple alum's brief tenure with the Boston Celtics. Terry and Christmas faced off in many a 3-point shooting competition after practice, and one day they extended their fun off the court. While Christmas hid in an oversized box, Terry lured their victims into the vicinity...

Pranked, Jason Terry Style

Has there ever been a more fun Celtic than Jason Terry? I know we've had some guys who were funny and jokers like Delonte and Baby, but Jet outdoes them all. The NOC has been putting out some fun videos with Jet.

Comments from the other side - Knicks 10/20

It's interesting how each fan base is different as far as which Celtics they dislike the most.  Chicago, it's Rondo.  The Nets, it's Courtney Lee.  Knicks fans seem to hate Jason Terry.  But they all hate the Celtics, so there's that.  I think my favorite comment this time was the guy whose phone auto-corrected Amare to Amateur, and they agreed that it was...

Jeff Green and Jason Terry Lead the Boston Celtics to a 109 – 98 Preseason Win Over the New York Knicks

Jeff Green and Jason Terry Lead the Celtics’ rally from a 20-point deficit to a 109 – 98 Preseason Win Over the New York Knicks. If Jeff Green can keep up his efficient scoring pace, he might not have to ask James Worthy for permission to use his nickname. Too soon? Probably, but as the [...]

Celtics Set to Welcome Leandro Barbosa

The Celtics have reached a deal with Leandro Barbosa for the league minimum. What kind of impact will the veteran guard have on his new team? Probably not a large one. Not to take anything away from Barbosa, but the Celtics are loaded at the guard positions heading into the season. Plus, Barbosa is a huge liability on defense and really the only thing he would be able to contribute...

A Few Interesting Notes from the GM Survey

Sully is the most likely to be a sleeper success.  As you might expect, the Heat and LeBron James got a lot of attention from the GM's in their annual survey. The Heat are picked to be the Eastern Conference Champs along with winning it all. 96.7% of GM's pick the Heat to emerge from the East with just 3.3% giving the Celtics a chance. 70% pick the Heat to win it all...

Celtics stole Barbosa from the Lakers

Celtics Life reader and Brazil native ThunWest was kind enough to translate a lengthy interview with new Celtic, Leandro Barbosa: Reporter – After play at 3 minor markets.

Always I get out to make some tests people come give me praise, congratulations, and wish good luck. I’m...

Celtics May Need Time to Build Chemistry After Major Changes In Offseason

BOSTON -- Jokes, both G-rated and R-rated, flew around the home locker room at the TD Garden late Sunday night. The preseason was finished, which was such a relief that hardly a member of the Celtics even mentioned their loss to the Philadelphia 76ers to end the exhibition schedule. Spirits were high, regardless of the defeat. Wins and losses have no bearing...

The Knicks also sat their stars with Melo, Amare and Chandler all sitting this one out...
