Found December 30, 2012 on Celtics Life:
Celticslife writers looking good Disappointing, disgrace, upsetting. That is exactly how I felt going to my first Boston Celtics' game last night. I was really excited to go, and when I first bought the ticket in October, I thought it would be a guaranteed win, but I was totally wrong. I first met Paul Pierce in 2002, giving away signed autographs of his game "NBA Inside Drive 2003", and I fell in love with the player. He was the first player I truly liked since Michael Jordan, and I played him and the Celtics countless amount of times in that game. Ten years later, I finally got to see my boy play, but it was an embarrassment. Other then seeing fellow boy and fellow writer Edwin, this NBA game was a joke. Here are the main reasons why my black ass is pissed: 1. Rajon Rondo hurt? Are you serious? He all of the sudden had a bruised hip? He had two days off since his last game, and we lost by almost thirty points, how can he hurt himself in that game? 2. Paul Pierce...

Your Morning Dump… Where there is a concerning divide in the locker room

AP Photo: Steve Yeater One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento. The Celtics are not on the same page. Some...

Celtics-Kings Live: Rajon Rondo Is Questionable for Sunday Night’s Game

8 a.m. ET: A horrendous road trip can end on an up note if the Celtics pull off the very achievable goal of beating the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. Well, normally that goal would be achievable. Even in their current state, the Celtics (14-15) would figure to have an easy time dismissing the Kings (10-19). Nothing is certain with the Celtics at the moment, though. Celtics fans...

All-NBA “Ugliest Jump Shot” Team

Some players’ jump shots in the NBA are so ugly, they bring two things to mind. One: how does their shot ever go in? Two: how have they not learned to shoot?  Of the players on the Ugliest Jump Shot Team, only one is a decent shooter, despite the fact that he uses more elbow on his jumper then Metta World Peace does on James Harden. PG: Rajon Rondo via bleacherreport.com Rondo’s...

Celtics-Warriors Live: Rajon Rondo, C’s Take on Resurgent Golden State, Led by Stephen Curry
