Last season a trade that would have brought O.J. Mayo to Boston for Judas Shuttlesworth was basically squashed because Mayo claimed that he “doesn’t care about Boston’s banners.” After last night’s double overtime loss Mayo backpedaled faster than Rondo getting back on D, claiming that the accusation wasn’t true and he had no say in the matter due to lack of veto power. He also claimed he would have welcomed a trade to Boston and that the failure stemmed from a C’s internal debate between the front office and the players about keeping #20. “I was in a good situation in Memphis at the time,” said Mayo. “Obviously, Boston is a big-time organization as well.

Might be an emotional night tomorrow as Jason Terry faces his former long time teammates for the first time.

Celtics Escape With Win Over Mavericks Despite Mistakes That Will Cost Them Against Better Teams

BOSTON — Jason Terry was incapable of recalling even the most crucial late-game possessions. His mind was so fogged over with 58 minutes of basketball, he could only try — but fail — to recall specific plays from the Celtics’ double-overtime slog against the Mavericks. “I don’t know,” Terry said. “I don’t even remember. It all happened so fast.” Actually, it happened...

Celtics grind out double-overtime win against the Mavericks 117-115

My eyes are bleeding.

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc has no timetable for a Celtics turnaround

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. “I don’t have a timetable on (when it’s all going to come together) because I don’t know what the time is going to be,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. “Some teams I’ve had get it like that, some take...

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

I included the video of Kevin McHale and Kevin Garnett embracing in the game recap, but I felt that this moment was so special it needed to be mentioned again. Yesterday was a very rough day for almost everyone in this country. Twenty precious children were killed in an act of senseless violence.
