Comments From the Other Side - Raptors 12/18

The return of Celtics basketball wouldn't be complete without Comments from the Other Side!   Raptors fans are always good for lots of great comments.  They had a 90 page game thread on one board, and it's just the preseason!!  I love how "Grandpa Allen" showed them that he's still got it!    I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I do gathering them...

Ray Allen questions David West for choosing Indiana over Boston

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Coming to Boston for a discounted price just to have a better opportunity to win a championship doesn't carry the same weight that it used to. See Exhibit A: David West. The Hornets and Celtics were all set to complete a sign-and-trade that would have brought West to Boston for three years at just under $10 million per season...

Celtics 76, Raptors 75: Greg Stiemsma is the hero. Bet I’ll never write that headline again.

It was an NBA basketball game that should have been shielded from young eyes. Turnovers and missed shots ruled the day. A lineup containing Boston’s rookies, training camp invites and Avery Bradley almost lost a double digit lead, somehow holding off Toronto’s regular season crunch-time lineup when Greg Steimsma’s third chance at a putback bucket fell with 12 seconds remaining...

Ray Allen isn’t happy David West took more money in Indiana

A few weeks ago, the Celtics beat out several suitors for two-time All-Star David West. Then, the sign-and-trade plans with the NBA-owned Hornets didn't work out, and West took more money to join the young and improving Indiana Pacers. So, if you're keeping score, he chose a good team, albeit one with a worse shot at a championship, in part because they could offer him a...

Ray Allen thinks David West made a mistake choosing Indy

David West is a Pacer, a big pickup for an Indiana team that barely scrapped into the playoffs last year. They picked up an All-Star power forward who is as good a pick-and-pop big as there is in the game. But West was almost a Celtic and would have been key to their run at…

Video: C's Bench Holds Off Raptors Starters for the Win

There are several new members on the Celtics bench this season.  While the jury is still out on how good they will be, or more importantly, how consistent they will be, yesterday was relatively encouraging.  The bench, mostly the third unit players, were able to knock down some key shots as well as hold off Toronto's starting unit for the win.  Check out the video below of...
