WALTHAM, Mass. -- Kevin Garnett typically looms large at the Celtics' practice facility. A 6-foot-11 future Hall of Famer cannot help but dominate the room, but on Wednesday, Garnett managed to take over the proceedings even though he was nowhere to be found. Garnett, an unrestricted free agent, has yet to make his intentions publicly known as the opening of the free agency period...
Danny Ainge said the #celtics have not made a promise to Royce White and they are open to trading up or down. No word on KG's status23 minutes ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®ReplyRetweetFavorite@GwashNBAGlobegary washburnMan, this Royce White promise/not promise is making me dizzy.This seems like as good a time as any to promote two profiles on White that should be considered...
Ryan Hollins played 5 1/2 seasons in the NBA and never found a big man he clicked with quite like Kevin Garnett. Hollins showed almost immediate improvement when he landed in Boston on March 23, meshing with Garnett and forming an occasionally impenetrable defensive duo in the post. The 17-year veteran even went to unusual lengths to mentor Hollins, 27, a gesture the younger player...
Shortly after Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett first arrived in Boston, the Celtics took a preseason EuroTrip which was said to help them form a tight bond prior to a season that would eventually yield 66 regular-season wins and one NBA title. The Celtics also benefited that season from having three superstars very close to their absolute primes, a supporting cast that included the...
The draft is a little more than 24 hours away, and the burning question remains… did Danny Ainge make a promise to Royce White?
His answer today: No.
“As a general rule I do not make promises,” Ainge said. “I have before, it’s been a while, and we did not make a promise, no. On draft day I’ll have 10 contingency plans and we’re exploring all the trade possibilities...
The Celtics are really in need of a center. Currently the Celtics don’t really have a true center on their roster. During the Celtics playoff run Kevin Garnett mostly played center but he is really a true power forward. Garnett’s future with the Celtics is uncertain.
The Celtics could also really use an athletic wing player or a shooting guard if Ray...

Last night, a fake Stephen A Smith Twitter account (@stephenasmift, not @stephenasmith) posted that Kevin Garnett would be announcing his retirement today at 1 PM on ESPN:
Sad day for the NBA, as the great Kevin Garnett has decided to retire. Press conference scheduled for 1 pm EST tomorrow on ESPN.

1.Anthony Davis Kentucky Fr. 6’10” – It’s hard to image that just a couple years ago in high school Davis was a guard, now he has grown into a power forward. His game reminds people of Kevin Garnett. Davis has great length and size, and he just needs to add some muscle. Davis is an outstanding athlete with great quickness and leaping ability. Offensively he has...
Danny Ainge refuted a report indicating the Celtics made a promise to draft Royce White.
Danny Ainge spoke to the media the day before the NBA draft on a variety of topics about the Celtics' future. Also, fan favorite Mickael Pietrus speaks to Molly McGrath about his offseason surgery and summer (video after the jump).
Danny Ainge would probably promise Anthony Davis that the Celtics would draft him with the 21st pick on Thursday, if Davis were on the board. Beyond that, Ainge is not going to put his word on the line when the future of the Celtics franchise, not to mention his own job, is on the line. "As a general rule, I do not make promises," said Ainge, the Celtics president of basketball...
When Danny Ainge and the Celtics finally pull the trigger on making a draft pick during Thursday night's draft -- wherever that may be -- the team will be making a big step in a new direction. With the future of key pieces like Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in doubt, the Celtics have to get younger. But they can't also sacrifice the willingness to compete now, before the team...
I absolutely love Jared Sullinger at the 21st pick, back problems be damned — almost as much as I loathe Fab “El Busto” Melo. I emailed a group of friends earlier this morning to say that if Melo becomes a productive pro, I’ll tattoo a profile of Kobe Bryant’s face on my chest and write a love letter to Rick Pitino.But Sullinger? He would have been a top 5 selection last...
