Rajon Rondo wants to put one notion to bed. Avery Bradley is not faster than Rondo, despite what Kevin Garnett suggested two weeks ago. In a postgame interview on the Celtics radio network, Rondo cut in on a question about who was faster, responding, "Me!" before the questioner, Cedric Maxwell, could even finish his sentence. "Ain't no question," Rondo said. "He might be faster on the ball, but I'm faster end to end." As Maxwell began to ask another question, Rondo cut in again. "Me!" Rondo said. "No, just playing. Go ahead." Garnett anticipated he might be in trouble when...

Rondo answers the question 'Who's faster, Rondo or Avery?'

Grande and Max had Rajon Rondo on their postgame show after last night's win over Philly. The best part comes at the 1:28 part when Maxwell asks Rondo, who's faster him or Avery? You can probably guess Rondo's answer before you listen, but worth listening to Rondo's rationale and how he interrupts the follow-up question. So who do you think would win a foot face...

Celtics are finally getting some love on the NBA's website

For most of the season, it seemed like every time I went to NBA.com, the only time the Celtics got a lot of press was if there were trade rumors surrounding Rondo or the Big 3. Or when we were on a horrible losing streak. But it seems that those at NBA.com have finally taken notice of Boston's playoff chances after we have beaten their beloved Miami Heat 2 times in the past...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Sixers

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters  Rajon Rondo:  Another 15 assists.  And yes, he sometimes gets a little too casual out there.  I'll take the bad with the good as this guy continues to set up his teammates.  His assists led to 32 points, and he added another 7.  So he accounted...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Heat

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Rajon accouned for almost half the Celtics' offense by assisting on 36 points (six 3's, and nine 2's) and scoring another 18.  That's 54 of the Celtics' 115 points.  That's amazing.  He still has some lapses here...

Enemy Chatter: Avery Bradley is a beautiful man

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. So tanking seems to be in full force. The game was over by halftime, and the most hilarious part of it all is that it was the defense that came up short. Open looks were as prevalent as LOST...

Comments from the other side - Sixers 4/8

 Sixers fans are a pretty demoralized group.  Way different from the smug and boastful group that posted during their big wins in Philly earlier this season.   They've resorted to hating their players and especially their coach.  The guy calling Stiemsma "smegma" cracked me up.   I alternated between thinking these were funny and thinking they were just sad. ...

Celtics' Experience Keying Another Playoff Push As Veterans Lead Way (Podcast)

Many thought that coming into this season, the Celtics might be too old to compete for another title. They said that the impossible grind of a compacted season would wear the older teams down and the Celtics were chief among them. Surprisingly, that hasn't been the case.
