Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
As you might expect, a lot of the talk was about the Celtics lack of defense in their first game. Each player mentioned the need for better transition defense, which means that Doc had drilled that fact into their heads during the preceding practice. Along with transition defense, communication was a topic as well.
It was also announced today that Rondo's Flagrant 1 foul was upheld by the league.

This may or may not be real, but it's funny regardless. From thebiglead.com who got it from lobshots.com. My money is on real. I've already seen Rajon autograph a baby this week, and I know you can buy that shirt outside the Garden after games. Follow Mark on twitter @LucidSportsFan

BOSTON -- The Celtics were extremely formidable at the TD
Garden last season, when they won 24 of their 33 home games and enjoyed a
bittersweet send-off from their fans toward the end of Game 6 of the Eastern
The Bucks did not much care about Boston's home record from
last season, though, and Celtics coach Doc Rivers recognized that. Shortly...
Take a deep breathe Celtic fans, and repeat after me: "it is only 1 of 82" and you will be okay. Remember there would have been a mini-coup in South Beach if LeBron and his special edition golden Nikes had lost on His championship night.
That is good, but this is about the Celtics and how they fared. So lets begin.
Jeff Green, well it was his first NBA game in over...
Looks like that Boston Celtics-Miami Heat tense rivalry just got taken up a notch.
Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo had an autograph signing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, last week, and while he was there, he took a picture with a female fan who was wearing a “LeBron is a ******** T-shirt.
There were plenty of questions on the ‘net about the authenticity of the shirt, but a second...

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.
Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play.
Said Legler: “I look at it as a guy...
All this talk about Dwyane Wade whining about Rondo's hard foul had me thinking about how basketball used to be played. You know by now that I read a lot of books on Celtics history. I love reading the story about how the Celtics didn't back down from anyone. Those Celtics teams in the old days had some swagger. I know that part of that swagger came from winning, but...
Doc on Wade's "punk play" comment: "Don't forget about Rondo's elbow injury (in 2011 playoffs)…that was created by Dwyane Wade."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 1, 2012
Yeah, cause Dwyane Wade has never done a punk move in his life.
Seriously, I'm sick of Wade already. I never hated him before the Heat got LeBron and Bosh but since then...
8 a.m. ET: Whoever it was that showed up Friday at the TD Garden wearing the home uniforms, that team did not resemble the squad that the real Celtics insist they can be.
They are what their record says they are, however, and entering Saturday's game in the nation's capital, the Celtics were 0-2. In front of them was an underwhelming Wizards team dealing with injuries to...
If you have not yet heard the news of Kevin Garnett’s cold shoulder to former teammate Ray Allen, you must not be listening to radio reports or watching SportsCenter. Maybe you live in a hole. Gary Tanguay of CSNNE said, ‘It’s bush league what Garnett did to Allen’. What do you think? Here’s the video so you can play [...]
Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview,
The Celtics trail the Bucks 46-3 at the half as Brandon Jennings leads the way with 15 points and four assists. It’s been a game marred by a high turnover rate and mediocre shooting, with the majority of the quality offense coming on the break. The lone bright spot for the Celtics has been Jared [...]
