Found February 05, 2013 on Crossover Chronicles:
Usually Greg Oden is grabbing headlines for all of the wrong reasons. A knee surgery here, being waived there. Thankfully  the story surrounding Oden these days is all about his comeback and the teams vying for his free agent services. After everything the big fella has been through (multiple knee surgeries and his exit in Portland), this is finally a story you have to be rooting for. The sweepstakes for Oden is heating up and has reportedly come down to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat according to CBSSports.com. The 7-foot center and former No. 1 overall pick by the Blazers in 2007 has not played since 2009 and has a meeting scheduled for next week with Pat Riley and the Heat to report also said. But while Oden has been working out in Ohio and Indiana as he prepares for next season, there is one other team to consider alongside the Cavs and Heat. The Boston Celtics. Over this past weekend, Shaun Powell tweeted that the two sides had spoken and the m...

Report: Ray Allen Sells Massachusetts Home for $4.6 Million, Same as Purchase Price in 2007

When Ray Allen signed with the Miami Heat last offseason, he was not leaving behind Boston completely. He and his family kept their 11,000-square-foot home in Wellesley, Mass., where they had lived since 2007. Now, it appears Allen no longer even has that link to the area.

Erik Spoelstra mum on East All-Star starters

MIAMI (AP) -- One day after earning the nod as coach of the Eastern Conference for the All-Star game, Miami's Erik Spoelstra wasn't ready to announce his starters. "Wouldn't it be so much more fun with some suspense," Spoelstra said Monday before the Heat hosted the Charlotte Bobcats. "We have time." The Heat's 100-85 victory at Toronto on Sunday...

Kevin Garnett on Trade Rumors: “I Bleed Green, But It’s a Business”

I am on record saying that the Celtics window has closed and it is time to blow up the team. KG and Paul Pierce would be considered valuable assets to teams who are in a position to make a NBA Finals run.  Every trade should be explored by Danny Ainge at this point. KG has a no trade clause, but from these quotes it appears if the right trade came around he would be interested....

Recap: C’s ride vintage KG, clutch Barbosa to disjointed, ugly win

Allow me to be the first to reference a “turn back the clock performance” by Kevin Garnett.  KG put up 27 and 10 to carry the Celtics… and he did it in just 32 minutes and 18 shots.  Leandro Barbosa chipped in 14 points, 12 in the 4th quarter, to erase a 10 point Raptors lead to start the 4th, and steal a 99-95 win. How night-and-day was this game?  The Raptors won the 1st...

Celtics 99, Raptors 95 Earlier this week Kevin Garnett responded to rumors that the Celtics core players may be traded with a simple, defiant phrase. He told reporters, “I bleed green” and in Boston’s fifth consecutive win at Toronto on Wednesday night, he proved it. Garnett posted a vintage line with 27 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes, while shooting an efficient 11-18...

Kendrick Perkins Provides Support for Rajon Rondo in ACL Recovery, Says Biggest Hurdle Will Be Mentally

Rajon Rondo is looking at a long road back from ACL surgery, but he’ll have a familiar face helping him along as he recovers. Former Celtics teammate Kendrick Perkins, now with the Oklahoma City Thunder, had a similar injury in 2010, when he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing the Lakers in the NBA Finals. Perkins was back on the court within seven...

Celtics-Raptors Live: Rudy Gay Welcomes Kevin Garnett, Celts to His New Home North of Border

8 a.m. ET: The Raptors got a whole lot more interesting last week when the perennial Atlantic Division also-rans picked up Rudy Gay in a three-team trade with the Grizzlies and Pistons. They still sit comfortably outside the playoff picture — at 17-31, they are 7 1/2 games behind the Celtics in the race for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference — but they did begin Gay’s...
