Start calling Kevin Garnett "Il Grande Biglietto." The Boston Celtics star has agreed to purchase a minority stake in Italian soccer club AS Roma, according to the Associated Press.

In the wake of Russell Westbrook having a spat with Kevin Durant while at the same time the Boston Celtics are off to an 0-3 start, there’s been all sports of buzz on the Internet and talk radio about a Westbrook for Rajon Rondo trade. Stop it. Let it go. It doesn’t work. And it’s…
Paul Pierce's return to the line-up was the big story for the Celtics against the Pistons
Thoughts I thought
Paul Pierce’s return was easily the most important thing these Boston Celtics needed to finally get into the win column. It was clear from the get go that Paul Pierce was trying to be aggressive and prove that he was ready to return. He got to the basket, got himself...
The Celtics' championship window may have been closing for the past couple of seasons, but if the first three games of this shortened season are any sign, that window is about to come to a crashing close. The C's will play their home opener on Friday night at TD Garden against the hapless Detroit Pistons, and it will likely present Boston's best chance at a win thus far...
It sure was good to get a win in this one and just as good to see the Captain back on the court. There's no use criticizing the Pistons, their fans seem to do enough of that. I feel bad for them because I've been there as a Celtics fan. Most remember their championship teams and now are hitting bottom. Some fun comments. Of course there are the recurring Boston is...
The Boston Celtics continue to flounder without Paul Pierce.
The Celtics will be trying to avoid their worst start in 42 years Friday night in their home opener against the Detroit Pistons in a matchup of winless teams.
Boston (0-3) last dropped its first four games in the 1969-70 season. There's no word on a possible return for Pierce, who is out with a bone bruise in his...

Roma confirmed to The Associated Press that Garnett accepted an offer from James Pallotta, one of the four Boston executives who closed a deal in August to become the first foreign majority owners of a Serie A club.
Pallotta also is a minority owner of the Celtics...
Perhaps all the Boston Celtics needed was their best player. Losers of their first three games this season, the Celtics welcomed back Paul Pierce and then welcomed themselves to the win column with a 96-85 victory over the Detroit Pistons.
In his debut, Pierce had 12 points, five assists and four rebounds. He hit half of his eight shots from the field and both of his free throws...
The Celtics shot 52.2% from the floor and they were up 86-64 after three quarters, so the Pistons never really mounted much of a challenge. Jermaine O’Neal shot 7 of 9 from the floor last night as he led the way for the Celtics with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 blocked shots. Ray Allen (17 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists and 1 steal) and Brandon Bass (17 points and 3...

Jermaine O'Neal scored 19 points, Paul Pierce added 12 in his season debut, and the Boston Celtics ended a dismal start to their season with a 96-85 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.
Unquestionably, there were semblances of doubt and insecurity that surfaced after the Celtics limped home Wednesday night after essentially having their pride snatched away, balled up, and discarded by the New Orleans Hornets. The Celtics spent the next 48 hours trying to disregard their disappointment at being winless.
