Found December 27, 2012 on Celtics Life:
There's been some talk about Jeff Green's minutes, as in "he is doing well for how much he plays" and "would put up good numbers if he played more." This begs a comparison to other players of somewhat similar talent level to see if he is putting up "good" numbers for the amount of time he is on the court. For this exercise, Green will be compared to other small forwards playing within two minutes of green's average. Green's numbers: 22.8 min per game, 9.8 ppg, 3 rpg, 0.7 apg Ersan Ilyasova - Milwaukee: 22.9 min per game, 8.7 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 1.5 apg Michael Beasley - Phoenix: 24.4 min per game, 10.5 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 2.3 apg Caron Butler - LA Clippers: 23.4 min per game, 9.1 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.9 apg Corey Brewer - Denver: 23.4 min per game, 11.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg 1 apg Dorell Wright - Philadelphia: 22.5 min per game, 8.7 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 1.6 apg Every one of those players, besides Butler who is having a terrible year and being outplayed by Matt Ba...

Video: Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game

Above are the video highlights from Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game against the Idaho Stampede. Hopefully when Melo gets recalled from the D-League, he can use all the experience he got as a confidence builder and can perform well for the Celtics. We could really use his size.

JaJuan Johnson Traded for Luke Harangody

Two former Celtics were in the D-League news this week as the Canton Charge sent the rights to former Celtic Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants today for former Celtic JaJuan Johnson and Fort Wayne’s 2013 first-round draft pick. The 6-foot-10 Johnson, a big man who would rather shoot jump shots than bang down low, averaged 13.2 points...

Jared Sullinger a starter soon? It would make sense

Over at MassLive.com, where Celtics Town authoritarian dictator (just kidding) Jay King gets paid to write about sports, Jay posted an interesting article on how Boston’s full-team plus/minus improves immensely when Jared Sullinger plays with the starters in place of Brandon Bass and/or Jason Collins.From Masslive.com:“Consider this: During the 197 minutes when Sullinger has...

Kevin Garnett: “He just jacked my shorts”

In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again.  Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little...

Paul Pierce’s Game Ball Gesture to Jason Collins Doubly Appreciated, As Awarding Game Balls Is Rarity in NBA

BOSTON — Paul Pierce gave Jason Collins his game ball, everybody clapped and that was pretty much that. A few days later, Pierce’s token of recognition for the veteran center’s hard work was all but forgotten for many members of the Celtics, who were much more impressed with the 40-point performance that earned Pierce the game ball in the first place. But for Collins, the gesture...

Former Celtics draftees involved in "blockbuster" D-League trade

In a rare D-League trade, two recent Celtics, JaJuan Johnson and Luke Harangody, have been traded for each other. The Charge acquired former Purdue big man JaJuan Johnson on Friday, and they used an old friend to do it. Canton sent the rights to former Cavalier forward Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in exchange for Johnson and Fort Wayne’s...

Doc Rivers Compliments Jared Sullinger, Calls Him ‘Big Fat Guy Playing Basketball’

Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care. The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat. This backhanded compliment came after Sullinger had a career-day on Christmas, going six-for-seven shooting with 16 points and seven rebounds. “Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart...

Laker Fans are Rooting for the Celtics Against the Clippers

As you guys know, I live in San Francisco but am originally from Long Beach. I am here right now visiting my family and old friends. What I heard recently was pretty shocking. Most of the Laker fans here have told me they will be rooting for the Celtics tonight so the Clippers streak will end. I can not believe it. I would root for anyone to beat the Lakers and that would even mean...

An "Amazing" & True Story

Imagine for a moment a top 15 player in the NBA was given the rights by his team to come and film a movie in which he plays for the Celtics.  Think of James Harden today.  Now what if I told you this actually took place? It did in a movie called Amazing Grace and Chuck, and why there's so little coverage on it today is beyond me.  I remember seeing this film a long time ago...

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 12/25

Well, this game made my Christmas a bit merrier.  It would have been a lot better if the Lakers and Heat had lost but I'll take a Celtics win any day, especially over these very unlikeable Nets and their fans.  The fact that some of them were complaining about the officiating is laughable, given that they shot 29 free throws to 13 for the Celtics.  Nets fans seem to hate their...
