TEAMS: Boston Celtics
CSNNE “Of course,” he told CSNNE.com. “I would love to be here next season.” “I know the type of players that Paul and Kevin and Ray (Allen) and (Rajon) Rondo are and how they want to win,” said Hollins. “Going against those guys on the other side, I’d always felt like I was a fit for this team and the way that Doc (Rivers) coaches and the way that players play over here. I always felt that way. It made an easy transition for myself.” “[They pushed me] incredibly hard,” he said. “It’s not just being hard and yelling -- it’s by example. The small things, talking here and there, it’s rubbed off.“ He added, “[I’m] dedicated. I’ve always taken my job seriously and loved the game, but the dedication (on the Celtics), eat sleep drink basketball, every day, every day, every day.” Ryan Hollins seemed to try hard in Boston. I'll give him that. He has the tools to be an NBA rotation big man.My biggest pet peeve with Hollins is that he almost always is on the outside lookin

Jeff Green's Return to Celtics Not a Certainty, As Other Teams Showing Interest, According to Agent

How old man Kevin Garnett taught me a little lesson

It’s been over a week since I came to the conclusion that Kevin Garnett would retire after this season. I was convinced of it immediately after watching KG answer a question from ESPN’s Doris Burke after the Celtics beat the Miami Heat in game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. Burke asked KG what fuels him after 17 years in the league. KG said “competition”, then...

Celtics' Reported Targeting of Omer Asik Could Impact Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett spent the second half of this season reminding everyone who asked that he does not like being a center. He fancies himself a forward, and no amount of praise for his play at the pivot is likely to change his opinion soon. The good news for Garnett is, he does not have to be a center anymore if he does not want to. The unrestricted free agent is believed to want to return...

Celtics considering strong offer for Bulls center

IAMGM: According to Sam Smith from Bulls.com: The Celtics are one the teams said to be considering a strong offer to Bulls center Omer Asik. The thinking is it might help them retain Kevin Garnett, who though playing very well at center the second half of the season doesn’t want to return as a center. Asik would definitely be a great add, but I'd prefer him coming off of the...

Many options lie ahead for Celtics in draft

With the NBA draft fast approaching (and the Celtics offseason starting earlier than most of us had expected/hoped for) it is time to take a look ahead at the offseason.
