This was a tough way to go out. If the Celtics somehow trade away Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, their final game in green will not be a fond memory. The Celtics’ underwhelming effort in Los Angeles on Wednesday was indicative of all their troubles without a lead guard like Rajon Rondo or a willing garbage man like Jared Sullinger. The 113-99 loss to the Lakers was not quite as bad as the beating the Celtics laid on them back in Boston, but it was a reminder that after winning eight out of nine games heading into the All-Star break, the Celtics are not so good that they can scoff at severe injuries to three key players. Back on the East Coast, the NBA trade deadline was less than 17 hours away when the Celtics tipped off at Staples Center. Over the next 2 1/2 hours, they supplied ammunition to naysayers who believe team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge should have “blown it up” as soon as Rondo went down with a torn anterior cruciate l...

Report: Nets Make Trade Offer for Paul Pierce, Would Include Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks in Deal

Chris Paul Tried to Get Kevin Garnett to Waive His No-Trade Clause, KG Declined

Apparently, Chris Paul is in charge of the Clippers front office (he would probably be better than some of the people they have had in the past). According the Bleacher Report, CP3 tried to get KG to waive his no-trade clause so he could be dealt to LA, but KG wasn’t having it. Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald found that Chris Paul spoke to KG prior to the deadline and made...

KG to Sit vs Suns - C's Set to Sign White

Kevin Garnett will sit tonight vs the Phoenix Suns and Jeff Green will get the start in his place. Small ball doesn't begin to describe what we will see tonight. More like "Mini Ball." There is help on the way, however. The Celtics are set to sign DJ White, who could be in uniform as soon as Sunday. White, who is a 6'9" forward, played in China this past...

Report: Boston Celtics Acquire Jordan Crawford From Washington Wizards

C's don't want Brooks & Kardashian for The Truth

The Nets have offered Marshon Brooks and Kris Humphries along with a first round pick for Paul Pierce.  Celtics politely declined.  This according to Wojo. He has more about the KG to the Clippers rumor in that article as well.  Sounds like it'd have to be a domino thing where Pierce gets dealt and then KG waives his no-trade clause and accepts the deal. That article also...

Recap: Anyone still awake?

You knew that the Lakers and their fans would be emotional tonight, and that L.A. would feed off of it, but the Celtics showed little resistance. Call it “tired legs”, second night of a back-to-back, blah blah. Boston just did not play defense tonight. Period. They fall 113-99 on L.A. As Doc told his troops at halftime, “they’re getting whatever they want..” Couldn’t...
