Brook Lopez has the athleticism of a rock. He leaps like a picnic table, floats like a brick, and dunks with the strength of a six-year-old girl. He’s about as explosive as wet gunpowder, and his top speed is slower than dial-up internet.
Most rocks are far more athletic than Jason Collins. Honorable mention to Tyson Chandler, who loses because Brook Lopez dunked it backwards.

Rajon Rondo had no trouble extending his string of consecutive double digit assist games to 33 this afternoon. In fact, he even dropped his tenth dime before halftime. I am a huge fan of the streak, and I have a sneaking suspicion that the home team's official scorekeeper is as well.
While at the Garden over the past couple weeks I've noticed...
Rajon Rondo has already extended his double-digit assist streak to 33 games in the first half as the Celtics lead the Raptors 47-42. Rondo had seven assists in the first quarter after making the game-time decision to return as the starting point guard. Rondo, who sprained his right ankle Wednesday night against the Jazz, showed [...]

The NOC has been putting out some great videos featuring Jason Terry. Here's the first part of a look at behind the scenes in making those videos.

It’s an early game for the Celtics and everyone is pretty exhausted having to wake up early on a Saturday morning. When Doc Rivers came out of the locker room for his pre-game press conference, he looked around and joked, *******! You guys are still here?” Then he got down to business, declaring Rajon Rondo [...]
Last night’s Celtics/Nets game got a little testy late in the second quarter, when Boston’s Leandro Barbosa appeared to have an easy look at a basket in transition before being grabbed by Brooklyn’s Keith Bogans from behind. The play appeared to be an obvious candidate for a flagrant foul call, which turned out to actually [...]
This week’s “Fan Friday” features a loyal reader and good friend of Red’s Army, Glory. Some of you may know her by her Twitter handle, “FickWalker”.

COLUMBIA, Md. — Without Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics were still able to generate plenty of offense from the guard positions. Leandro Barbosa started in Rondo’s place. Along with Jason Terry and Courtney Lee, Boston’s three healthy guards combined for 40 points and 11 assists. As a team, they shot better than 55% in the [...]
In the Celtics first game in the brand new Barclays Arena, some basketball was being played through the music being blared through the loud speakers. The Celtics were without Rajon Rondo after his ankle sprain last night, with Leandro Barbosa starting in his place. With the game tied 87, Brooklyn pulled away and despite the Celtics best efforts (including a dicey foul on D-Will...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

He did a great job of being aggressive. He’s obviously not Rondo, but he’s just about as fast and any time you can push the tempo and force the defense to react, good things will happen. Barbosa also...

Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans. And, they couldn't deny the fact that they caught several breaks from the refs. They also realize that they lucked out with Rondo's absence. Enjoy today's Comments...
No Rondo. Celtics playing the second half of a...
BOSTON — Jason Terry is not the same old Jet this season. No matter what his shooting percentage may be, the transition in Boston after eight seasons in Dallas has not been seamless.
There have been single-digit scoring games, like when he failed to make a basket in a win over Utah. There have been games in which he has been underused, such as the win in Washington when he clocked...
Keyon Dooling is a consummate professional. He played a supporting role for the NBA's Boston Celtics last year, helping them to reach the Eastern Conference Finals before they ultimately fell to the Miami Heat. He played hounding defense, was a leader in the locker room, and never shied away from talking to the media. He was also VP of the NBA Players Association.

They call him "Big Al" but on this particular play during last night's Celtics-Jazz game, Al Jefferson was reduced to "Little Al" by Jeff Green.
