TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Celtics_garnett_talks_98cb
Presumably, Garnett has been working on his knuckle pushups and he will be able to do more than eight this season.With the most exciting moments of the offseason behind us, Celtics Town is counting down the Celtics’ roster from 16 to one. We’ll offer speculation on the role each player has to play, and where they’ll be in the rotation as we look towards the upcoming season. If you missed the last column in this series you can check it out here.From 2008-2011, we’ve known exactly what we will get from Kevin Garnett on a night-in, night-out basis: 18-20ish points, 10ish rebounds, five-ish forehead bumps against the basket support (six or seven on nights when Miami visits the Garden), two skirmishes, and the kind of defensive intensity usually reserved for a bear fight (bar fight? Whatever). But last year, the script got an upgrade. Garnett became even more important to Boston’s offense.Don’t believe me? Understandable. A glance at his offensive numbers don’t seem to back me up. Garn...

Celtics News From Around the Web – September 3

CLNS Radio Do We Have a Chinese Sneaker Company to Thank for the Return of Kevin Garnett? Kevin Garnett leaves behind his contract with Adidas to sign with Anta, a Chinese company. Since his contract with Anta was worth $2 million, it can be assumed that the Anta contract was very lucrative. Garnett’s contract with [...]

Jared Sullinger isn’t interested in tattoos

There will be no ink for Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger: “No tattoos,” he recently told CSNNE.com. “I promised my mother. You know if you break a promise, you’re not going to be living for the next days (laughs). I want to live as long as I can, so I’m not going to break that promise.” That’s not the only promise Sullinger, the youngest of three brothers, made to his...

Danny Ainge had no real choice but to give Jeff Green his money

We’ve argued about Jeff Green’s contract for about two full months now.  We’ve debated his ability, his mental state, and his potential.  Numbers have been tossed around to defend our positions.  But none of that really matters, because the Celtics had virtually no choice but to give Green his four-year, $36+ million contract. The whole things starts with Kevin Garnett and...

Celtics Got Each Others' Backs

We've heard all the stories - of how Boston Celtics legends regularly talk to, visit with, support and advise current C's stars (here, Hondo seems to be discussing strategy with The Truth).  It's a support system and foundation that makes the Celtics a unique entity in team sports.  It also establishes tradition and breeds pride and kinship - among past and present...

Auerbachian - Good or Lucky?

A couple of times since 2007, I've seen Danny Ainge's moves described as Auerbachian. He was able to amass the chips needed to trade for 2 future Hall of Famers and after that to build a bench capable of winning a championship. This season he was able to sign Jason Terry with the MLE and then make a trade for Courtney Lee in a manner that Sherrod Blakely called unprecedented...

Jared Sullinger says he’ll never get a tattoo

One of the first things NBA rookies seem to do when they sign their first contract is hit the tattoo parlor. Finding an NBA player without ink is far more rare than finding one who has a tattoo, and it sounds like Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger is planning to remain among the minority. The 20-year-old former Ohio State star says he made a promise that he intends to keep. “No tattoos...

Red's Legacy: Keep It Simple

As you probably can tell by many of my posts lately, I love Celtics history and have been reading a lot of books on the subject. In every one of the books from the years when Red was coach, one thing always stands out. Red's approach to the game was "Keep it simple." “He always thought the simpler you keep things the easier for the players to remember,” Larry...

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo didn’t watch a lot of NBA games growing up

Courtesy: WEEI 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. And while that last Boston championship team contained some of the best veterans in the game – among them Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett – Rondo has emerged as the franchise’s on-court leader...
