Found July 26, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Last week, our own Mark Vandeusen had this crazy idea that the Celtics should try to trade Jordan Crawford. Seems like it was a good one, as CSNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely's sources tell him that Danny Ainge could have the same thought. Jay King, MassLive.com: According to CSNNE.com, Jordan Crawford could be a casualty of the shooting guard depth. A. Sherrod Blakely reported Thursday that the Celtics would "love" to trade the 24-year old, but haven't found much, if any, interest. "Look at that their team?" a source told Blakely about the Celtics. "(Crawford) and MarShon Brooks are basically the same kind of player. No sense in keeping both of them around if you can help it." Of course, there are some steep challenges to trading Crawford. The Washington Wizards basically gave the guy away, they took Jason Collins and an out-for-the-year Leandro Barbosa back for him. As King notes in his report, Crawford doesn't exactly have the reputation ...

Boston Celtics Star, Reggie Lewis, Died 20 Years Ago Today

"Tanks" for nothing Celtics Bandwagoner/BIEBs Fan

This column will be the last time I ever use the word “tank” in association with the Boston Celtics. I for one am sick and tired of hearing the “t” word used in regards to this storied and proud franchise.  Enough already! Or as one of my favorite movie characters “Lefty” would say “fuggetaboutit.” I’ve noticed that the “t” word is predominately used by younger...

Was It Really 20 Years Ago Today? The Death of Reggie Lewis

Celtics say season ticket sales still strong, but are they misleading?

From a Boston Globe article today by Baxter Holmes: According to Celtics president Rich Gotham, about 90 percent of the team’s season-ticket base from last season has re-upped for next season. “That number is a really strong number,” Gotham said Wednesday. “I think most teams in the NBA would kill for that kind of number.” That number is considered to be above the league...

For every fan that remembers the heartbreak of losing Reggie and for the fans who have just read about it, this will be a must watch.

Welcome to the Keep Shav Crusade

At the end of last season when Doc finally gave into the Free Shav movement for the final 10 games, Shavlik Randolph grabbed every rebound in sight.

Those were the best numbers on the team, but mind you it was in small...
