The post season is right around the corner and the only thing standing between it and the Boston Celtics is a five game stretch. The first of five will be played tonight in Boston when the Brooklyn Nets roll into town. The Nets are coming in following a contest that saw Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans combine for a total of 35 rebounds. With rebounding being anything but Boston's strong suit, it will be interesting to see what the Celtics can do to limit Brooklyn's bigs on the boards. Keeping rebounding in mind, I think it will be absolutely blasphemous if Shavlik Randolph doesn't get at least 25 minutes of floor time in this one. Not only will he provide the Celtics with toughness and grit, but he'll also be able to spell Kevin Garnett. KG's health is vital at this point of the year and a little extra rest wouldn't kill him, but it's not just that. Randolph's want and desire to go after the ball and collect misses can become infectious, lead...

Jeff Green has been polarizing player for many Celtics fans. Some love him; love the potential, and the flashes of greatness. Some hate him simply because he was the piece we got back for Perkins, and others can’t stand him, think he’s overrated, not that good etc. Coming out of college he was hearing much of the same stuff, even from the NBA coaching circle. Before last night’s...
One of the few good moments for the C's for last night, and it was a really good one.

The Celtics are playing better as the regular season winds down, but are they playing well enough to legitimately intimidate playoff-caliber teams? Or just blowing smoke?
All grit and balls? Or all bluster? Kevin Garnett, and his trash-talking antics, are back in the Celtics lineup, and his presence has brought immediate results on the defensive end. While K...
LOOK OUT, young fella! Dunkers in the building!
You know how you were always taught to force your man middle? This is a great example of how that fails to work. Brandon Bass blows by Reggie Evans and into the lane, which generally isn’t a bad thing for the defense, but a late rotation by Brook Lopez, who looked as if he had no idea that Bass could dunk, results in Brook paying...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Since Jared Sullinger went down for the season with a back injury, the C’s have struggled to find another “blue collar” guy. Wilcox simply has not had enough time on the floor, and Bass just does not fit that...
The trade deadline has long since passed, and the Celtics are about to embark on their 6th consecutive playoff run. You would think that the team could concentrate on that—rather than yet another round of trade rumors—but you'd be wrong.
Of course now the rumors have shifted from the trade deadline, to the summer. But the names remain the same—mainly future Hall of Famers Paul...
Most think of this play when they think of the 1984 Finals, but there was so much more to that victory.
By Cort Reynolds
The 1984 NBA championship series is arguably the greatest Finals in league history.
Definitely the best I have ever seen, and it had everything: great play from all-time great players, drama, controversy, thrilling finishes, multiple overtimes, strategy, conspiracy...
Jay-Z has recently signed Robinson Cano and Victor Cruz to his sports agency and is reportedly selling his Nets share so he can represent NBA players as well.
Reggie Evans and Brook Lopez combined for 46 points and 35 rebounds on 19-32 shooting this evening at the Barclays Center. Incredible
Another game vs a sub-.500 team, another big Nets win. Resting for two days after Saturday's home win vs the Charlotte Bobcats, Brooklyn thoroughly dominated a lifeless Philadelphia 76ers team that fell behind by 13 points...
The whole video is worth a watch (If only for the amazing 80's Italian disco), but the money dunk is at the 2:16 mark. I know we have a ton of Celtics fans in Italy. Anyone remember this 1985 Nike exhibition game?

The biggest name associated with the Brooklyn Nets now has his sights on bigger things.

Although he owns a very small share of the Brooklyn Nets, hip-hop superstar Jay-Z is one of the most identifiable owners in sports. His success in the rap game and interest in sports makes him a very popular guy amongst professional athletes, including the great LeBron James.
Recently, news came out that Jay-Z is looking to enter the sports representation...
