Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Los Angeles Lakers
The NBA is kind of like a chess game. One team makes a move and another has to make a move to counter it. The Celtics brought in Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen and Miami countered with LeBron James and Chris Bosh. The Celtics took the Heat to 7 games in the ECF with LeBron and Co playing mostly small ball. The Celtics countered by bringing in Jason Terry, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green to stock up on athletic wings who can shoot and defend.
But, the Heat aren't the only ones that the Celics need to worry about next season. Just as the Celtics took the Heat to 7 games, the Sixers took the Celtics to 7 games in the Semi-Finals. After looking like they were going to have to take a step back to become contenders again, Philly made a big trade that could make them contenders for years to come. They received Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson in trade in exchange for Andre Iguodala. They signed Kwame Brown as a free agent and brought back some young talented players from last sea...

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.
All hail Paul Pierce, the only player to rank in the top five in both seasons. The Celtics’ small forward ascended to the top in 2011-12, when he averaged 1.057 points per possession and shot 48 percent from...

As a rookie on a veteran squad, Sullinger is ready to embrace his place among his teammates and contribute wherever he can. A dedicated rebounder (he averaged 10.2 boards per game last season), Sullinger is looking forward to crashing the boards and helping the team with second-chance points.
The Celtics are looking forward to him doing that as well. They...

Last weekend, Dionte Christmas and his “Show Ya Love” squad won the 7th annual Rumph Classic held in Philadelphia. The tournament, named in memory of Danny Rumph, is held each year as a tribute to him. Rumph, who graduated from Parkway High in 2001, and went on to play hoops for Western Kentucky University, sadly passed away from Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy at the age of...

It will be interesting to hear what the hold us was for this. I've never heard of a contract taking this long to get finalized. The most recent report we had on Green's contract was that it was a four-year deal for $36 million, which is most definitely overpaying...
Courtney Lee could be a key piece of the puzzle for the Celtics both this year and going forward.With the most exciting moments of the offseason behind us, Celtics Town is counting down the Celtics’ roster from 16 to one. We’ll offer speculation on the role each player has to play, and where they’ll be in the rotation as we look towards the upcoming season. If you missed...
Jared Sullinger decided to reward those of us who thought that watching the NBA Summer League for two weeks would be riveting television by revealing to us his full arsenal. He showed that his low-post moves and his ability to put the ball in the bucket were suited perfectly for the not-so-bright lights of the Summer League, a league that is notoriously filled with a few first...
I came across this photo and thought it was quite interesting. Believe it or not, both Josh Smith and Dwight Howard, along with Randolph Morris, were Celtics at one time. Unfortunately it wasn't the Boston Celtics, but the Atlanta Celtics when they played AAU basketball together. Howard is more than likely staying in LA, but there's still a chance that Josh Smith may...

Short mix for the captain, but a quality one. If anyone knows the name of the artist who made the "I Ball Like A Celtic" track, please leave it in the comments section below. I do know the song that it samples though (And if you claim to be a hip-hop fan and don't, then shame on you).

Date: June 3, 2012Location: TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, MABasketball games are significant for different reasons to different people. The honorable mention game in this series was significant for a very small percentage of Celtics’ fans, one which happened to include myself. #10 was significant because the defense got going for the first time all season. #4 was significant...
