Boston Mayor Thomas Menino Mistakenly Refers to Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo as 'KJ' and 'Hondo' (Video)

The Boston Celtics look to have turned back the clock and found a much younger, more spry group of players in the year's postseason run. But it appears that Boston Mayor Thomas Menino may have turned things back a little too far. Menino wanted to pass on some praise to the successful hometown team on Wednesday, even calling out some Celtics players by name. The issue: it wasn...

Tonight, Make it a Rondo Bomb

Most of my posts on CelticsLife are rather lengthy and in-depth. My most recent one; Patience is a Heavenly Green Virtue, got heavy and included a biblical quote. I wanted to be a bit more light-hearted and fun by posting a nice new recipe for this evening's fesitivities, the Rondo Bomb. Whether you are heading out to a local watering hole to check out game six or you are enjoying...

Boston mayor mistakenly refers to Garnett and Rondo as "K.J" and "Hondo" (Video)

Boston Celtics stars Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo are two of the team's best-known players and have been given tons of credit for leading the Celtics to a 3-2 series lead in the NBA Eastern Conference finals. However, the mayor of Boston had trouble remembering their names during a television interview Wednesday. Mayor Thomas Menino, the longest serving mayor in Boston...

Paul Pierce Felt Confident in Late Three-Pointer, Rajon Rondo Just Pleased to Get Big Win (Video)

Paul Pierce received the ball with under a minute to go and some room to breath in front of the 3-point line. The Celtics captain didn't bother pump faking or even attempting to drive to the hoop, as he was as confident as ever that he could seal a colossal Game 5 win with one stroke of the netting. Pierce sunk the clutch 3-pointer with :52 seconds to play in Tuesday night'...

Heat - Celtics Game Six Top 40 Takeaways

40) LeBron James has got your post game right here 39) Rajon Rondo had one assist in the first quarter, and seven turnovers on the night, so this must have been all his fault 38) James is entirely to blame for this game being devoid of drama, which is one more reason to hate him, I guess 37) You could watch a lot of games without seeing Paul Pierce look more feeble than tonight...

Reliving KG's craziest moments

Earlier this year, Complex.com published video clips of Kevin Garnett's 15 Craziest Moments. With KG dominating the 2012 NBA playoffs in ways only he can, I figure it's a good time to relive the insanity. The video above is Rajon Rondo's reaction to hearing Garnett's screams from the next room. It's #15 on the list and its priceless. Here's the other...

Boston Mayor Praises Great Play By ‘KJ and Hondo’

Mayor Thomas Menino, who is the longest-serving Boston Mayor in history, really did stay up a bit too late watching the Celtics beat the Heat in Game 5. The Mayor gets asked a few questions on the Celtics and what he thinks are the keys to their success. Mr. menino does a great job at responding initially in vague terms, but when he tries to single out Kevin Garnett and Rajon...

Patience is a Heavenly Green Virtue

Athletic competition has become almost devoid of true patience. Basketball, in particular is generally a rampage of emotion and speed that can be quite overwhelming. Patience has become a lost art in the world of sports. It is the most important of the seven heavenly virtues. Patience is said to specifically oppose the vice of wrath. However, this is not something that is an exact...

Video: Lebron Steps Up in Game 6

This is what MVP’s do. When their team needs them and it’s win or go home, they rise up to the occasion, put their team on their back and get the W. Last night, Lebron James epitomized what it means to be an MVP. 45 points, 15 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 win. The last stat is the only number that really matters for the Miami Heat as they get the critical game 6 victory, 98-79,...

Cherish this Celtics team

The Celtics have played many great games this year. Down the stretch of the regular season, they were on fire. A regular season road blowout of the Miami Heat showed the world that this was a team that could contend for a championship. However, for me, there was a game much earlier that showed that there is something special about this team. Ironically, it was a loss. February...

Celtics 94, Heat 90: One win away from the NBA Finals

The Celtics shot 33 percent in the first half. They went down by nine midway through the third quarter. They were down six points with six minutes left.  Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce combined to hit just four of their first 23 field goal attempts. Pierce couldn’t hit the broad side of Vince Wilfork’s ass, so naturally he hit a dagger three and had...

Celtics Stun Miami, Look To Close Out In Game Six

The Celtics gutted out a 94-90 win on the road in game five last night to take a 3-2 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. Boston will have a chance to close out the series and clinch a berth in the NBA Finals tomorrow night in game six at the TD Garden.
