Taking Stock: C's-Pacers

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Paul Pierce:  The 21 points were great, the 6 turnovers were not, neither was the 5-12 shooting.  But he was drawing fouls and he he was producing more than he has been.  On a back-to-back night, there's something to be said for that. Rajon...

Your Morning Dump... Where it's KG's fault

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. And that, in a nutshell, is the story behind the 2011-12 Celtics. Garnett, the linchpin of one of the best defensive teams in NBA history over the past four seasons, can't get off the ground, and it...

Massachusetts' Maria Menounos Tebows Her Golden Globes? Unacceptable

 Listen Maria Menounos, your Boston Celtics fandom has been proven but no self-respecting person from Medford (MA) can justify her actions at the Golden Globes. Showing up in a dress that is more akin to the Broncos' orange than anything from New England, Menounos (who is totally hot of course) took time on the red carpet to Tebow. The **** is that Maria? That's unacceptable...

Report: Boston getting calls asking about Paul Pierce

Can you picture Paul Pierce in any other uniform than Boston green? It seems weird. But Celtics fans are starting to try, they taking to message boards and asking the big question: Is it time to blow up the Celtics and rebuild? This team has lost five in a row, has fallen to 4-8, and…
