Found January 10, 2013 on Celtics Life:
My Legion Sports tweeted this out just a few minutes ago. They've had some good insight's the past week or so and are featured on and, so it's worthy of a mention. Lakers, Celtics, Nuggets, Grizzles among teams interested in trading for Kings guard Tyreke Evans. — Legion Sports (@MySportsLegion) January 10, 2013 I hope to God that Danny isn't seriously considering this. Either as part of a larger Cousins/Evans package, or Evans by himself. Evans is one of my least favorite players in the league. A shoot first combo guard who has seen his numbers decline in each of his 4 NBA seasons. From 20.1 points and 5.8 assists in 2009-10, to 17.8 and 5.6 in 2010-11, 16.5 and 4.5 last season, and finally 14.6 and 4.6 this season. Not exactly the trend your looking for in a young player. There's also the matter of who the C's would give up. They currently have a back court of Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley, which I happen to like quite a bit. Evans will be...

Celtics Player Grades vs Phoenix Suns

The Celtics beat the Suns 87-79 ESPN Boxscore CelticsLife Game Recap Player Grades: Kevin Garnett: Did not make his usual impact tonight, but no starter did. He did play his usual great defense however, which was something positive about his night. It was good that Doc got to limit his minutes tonight, and it was great that the team could win without a lot of contribution from...

DeMarcus Cousins tossed for shot on Carter

It has been a roller coaster month for DeMarcus Cousins, and it took another dip on Thursday night as the Sacramento Kings took on Dallas. While Cousins put up some big numbers (like he can), he also has moments that make you bang your head on the wall (like he did). While the teams battled in OT, Cousins ended up elbowing Vince Carter...

Rajon Rondo Annoyed With NBA, Referees, Media, Feels They Contribute to Negative Reputation

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo is not one to mask his emotions, so he did not try to hide how perturbed he was when he was told Wednesday about the length of Carmelo Anthony‘s suspension. As Rondo prepared to make his return from a one-game suspension for bumping a referee and then, in the league’s words, “failing to cooperate with a league investigation,” he was informed that the...

Happy Anniversary Jeff Green!

On the first-year anniversary of his heart surgery, Jeff Green celebrated it by submitting 14 points (on 5-of-9 shooting), 3 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in helping lead the C's to an 87-79 win over Phoenix.  CelticsLife celebrates your courageous return as well, Uncle Jeff, with this special wallpaper commemorating one of several dunks you laid on the Suns.  Welcome Back...

Paul Pierce, Doc Rivers Credit Bench for Keeping Celtics Stars Rested, Rejuvenated During Recent Run

BOSTON — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett had gotten used to running damage control. Their task, during the first two months of the season, often was to hand the Celtics’ bench a workable lead and pray that the score stayed manageable while they sat, so they could reclaim the lead later. The approach did not always work, as their dreadful December and five-game losing streak entering...

Report: Celtics Open To Discussing Paul Pierce In Trade Talks

Team executives involved in exploratory trade talks report that the Knicks (Amar’e Stoudemire), Lakers (Pau Gasol), Raptors (Bargnani) and Celtics (Paul Pierce) are open to discussing their high-profile names. In every case but one, the early indications are that none could be moved without a bad contract going back in return. (In Stoudemire’s case, his health and the $45 million...

Jared Sullinger: The Future

As the 21st overall pick in the NBA, Jared Sullinger, is proving himself every single game to be worthy of playing on such a team as the Boston Celtics. Tonight against the Rockets, he had fourteen points and eleven rebounds. He was 7 for 8 shooting the ball, and he earned his second consecutive double double. He is doing very well compared to the other rookies. He is fourth in rebounds...

NEW VIDEO: 'Melo and KG almost came to blows inside tunnel

New video has appeared which shows that Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett did meet up outside after Monday night's Knicks-Celtics game and looked more ready to tangle than just talk. TMZ posted a video of Garnett approaching Anthony inside the Madison Square Garden tunnel where the Boston team bus was waiting and its pretty clear both men were ready to take it to another level...

KG vs. Colbert

The Kevin Garnett - Carmelo Anthony feud was already headline news, but now KG's trash-talking exploits have come before the judgement of the ultimate media power: Stephen Colbert. Colbert gives a "Tip of the Hat" to KG for (reportedly) telling Melo that his wife tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios. He goes on to advocate more product placement be incorporated into players...

Amid uncertainty, Kings lose in overtime to Mavericks

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento Kings couldn't figure out how to put the hammer down on the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night at Sleep Train Arena. Given the looming possibility of a team sale and move to Seattle, it made sense that the Kings appeared to be in disarray. Initially, the Kings appeared to ignore the specter of upheaval, but the Mavericks ended their five...

Video: Footage Of Carmelo Anthony And Kevin Garnett Confrontation

TMZ posted a grainy video of Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett, completely surrounded by security personnel, exchanging words near the Celtics team bus on Monday night. No, the words ‘Honey Nut Cheerios’ cannot be overheard amongst the yelling:

Here ya go Seattle – good luck!

Good news Seattle – if the rumors hold any water, you’re getting an NBA team again.   And now the bad news – it’s the Sacramento Kings.   Sorry.   According to a report from Yahoo Sports, the owner of the Kings, the infamous Maloof family, is negotiating with a group led by Microsoft Chairman Steve Ballmer [...]

My Reaction to Overreaction

Ray Allen signs with Heat: "Ray left? Our season is over!" Courtney Lee signs with Boston: "We got Courtney Lee? Forget Ray we're so much better now!"
