The Boston Celtics fight for last place (and brighter future)

These Boston Celtics aren’t supposed to win, that is abundantly clear by just giving a quick glance at their roster. Through the first days of the season, that adage has held true with Boston dropping its first two games of the season. This will become a common theme throughout the season. Losing isn’t fun, especially when it happens consistently, but in the NBA it is necessary...

Jeff Green didn’t play in 4th of Sunday’s loss: tankapalooza in full swing

The Boston Celtics lost to Detroit on Sunday by the score of 87-77 which really should surprise nobody. These Celtics are bad, real bad and they are expected to contend for pole position in the “Most ping-pong balls in the lottery” race. Most noticeable, however, is that Jeff Green – the same Jeff Green the green signed to a 4 year, $40 million contract last season and was...

Celtics top ESPN’s Tank Rank

I was unaware ESPN.com Insider had launched a new feature called Tank Rank. It’s a weekly look at the ten worst teams in the NBA in their quest for the top pick in the draft. Guess who ranks #1? 1. Boston Celtics | Status: Tank-building | Record 0-3 The Celtics aren’t the worst team in the NBA; they’re just playing like it right now. One of four winless teams after the first...

The Celtics are one of four teams in the NBA without a win, is that a good or bad thing?

Andrew "Easy Ed" Wiggins The Celtics have had a couple bad games to start off the season here. They've played both at home and on the road, both losses. After only two games, Gerald Wallace is already calling out his teammates for going for their stats. Basically, it's as big of a mess as it can be after two games. In fact, the Celtics are one of four teams...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Grizzlies 11/4

After losing in ugly fashion last night, the Celtics will play their second game of a back-to-back tonight when they head to Memphis to face the Grizzlies. So far this year, the Grizzlies have gone just 1-2, but their one win did come at home against the Pistons. Since the Pistons beat the Celtics last night, I'd imagine that the C's won't win this one. But, as always...

Celtics dead last (#30) in ESPN's NBA Power Rankings

#30, Brandon Bass The above title is not one I ever thought I would write.  In the Week 2 edition of Marc Stein's ESPN power rankings, the Boston Celtics are 30th out of 30 NBA teams.  After beginning the season at #25, the C's 0-3 record has dropped them to the bottom of the barrel.  The funny thing is Boston isn't really all that far from being 3-0; they've...

Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose watch, week one

Derrick Rose is finally back as part of the NBA landscape as a player for the Chicago Bulls, rather than a spectator. It will be interesting to see Rose’s progression throughout the season, as he gets reacclimated to true NBA action. I’ll use the weekly “Derrick Rose Watch” to track how Rose is performing. 10/29 at Miami Heat (L, 107-95) 34 min, 4-15 FG, 1-7 3pt, 12 pts,...

Jeff Green Goes Missing and Other Impressions From Celtics’ Loss to Pistons

Jeff Green said after Friday’s loss that it’s on him to make the Celtics play better down the stretch. He can only do that if he is on the court. Green did not get off the bench in the fourth quarter on Sunday night as the Celtics came back from a 15-point deficit to take a brief two-point advantage. With Kelly Olynyk posting one of his finest games in his young pro career, Celtics...

Comments from the Other Side - Pistons 1/3

Just as in the first two games, the Celtics showed flashes of being a good team and there are positives we can take from the game.  And, also, just as in the first two games,  they were unable to execute down the stretch for a win.  I'm always amazed when I see fans hating on their own team - not just criticizing them, but HATING them.  And when a fan wishes an injury on...

Are the Celtics headed for a subpar season?

After the first two games of the season, it’s easy to jump to the quick conclusion that the Celtics will not be championship contenders this year. They blew a 22 point lead against the Bucks. It’s hard not to be frustrated at that as a Celtics supporter.  A superb first 3 quarters were overshadowed by a poor 4th, where they were outscored 34-15 in the 4th quarter. This is really...

Your Celtics Life Week in Review... 11/3/13

Bill Russell got a statue, the Celtics lost a few games, and Gerald Wallace called out his teammates again. Ho-hum, just another week in the world of the Boston Celtics. We're excited to kick off the regular season finally, but wish we had a few more wins to show for it. Or maybe we don't, but that's a whole other post. Celtics Games... Impressive 3rd quarter goes...

Report: Kendall Marshall May Interest Celtics, But Unlikely to Sign Due to Luxury Tax Concerns

The NBA instituted a more prohibitive luxury tax, which begins with hard “repeater penalties” for persistent taxpayers next season, as a means to control the likes of New York and Los Angeles stockpiling stars. The tax was never meant to keep a marginal player off a roster or to dissuade a team from signing a useful backup to fill out its bench. But that may be exactly the fallout...

Silver Lining 76ers - 3

www.gcobb.com One win, a great feeling.  Two wins, unexpected success.  Three wins?  Crap, now I'm starting to actually think they're that good.  Even better, they're winning with two things that I (and most in Philadelphia) value way too much.  Hustle and heart.Victory number three over Chicago was definitely not supposed to happen.  Chicago...
