Found August 02, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Randolph's play in Boston should keep him in the NBA CSNNE's Jessica Camerato spoke with Shavlik Randolph yesterday evening, and here's what he had to say about his future and time with Boston: "I don't know if there's enough room on the paper for what to say to the fans. I'm just extremely, to the highest level, thankful for their support. I don't think they understand how touching it's been to me. It's been such a highlight of my career, the support that they've given me. It's so easy for a player like me to go out, bust my butt, put my body on the line and play 100 percent all the time when it's for fans that support you the way they supported me. Even into this offseason, showing support in me wanting to return, it just absolutely was touching and I could never really express how grateful I am for that.  Since the offseason began I haven't really considered being somewhere else [besides Boston].

Celtkicks: Rajon Rondo Nike Hyperposite p.e.

An absolutely sick pair of Rajon Rondo Nike Hyperposites recently surfaced on EBay. These Nike basketball shoes, which blend a sleek hoops shoe with a high-tech foamposite, were made specially for #9. Unfortunately, due to last year’s injury, he never got to rock them. They sold on EBay for just under $1000. Rondo wore the Hyperposites last year, most notably a sweet mint green...

Whether you wanted to admit it or not, the summer of 2013 was almost guaranteed to be a busy one for the Boston Celtics.

Kelly Olynyk Still Mostly Unknown Commodity Despite Summer League Standout Status (Poll)

As impressive as Kelly Olynyk was as a summer leaguer, the Celtics’ first-round draft pick will head into his rookie season as something of a mystery man. It is still unclear what Olynyk’s final position will be in the NBA and what role coach Brad Stevens will put him in. Normally, a 7-footer is slotted in as a center and that’s that. But Olynyk does not have the girth or the...

It's August 1st, do you know where your Shavlik is?

Boston must decide today whether or not to cut Shavlik Randolph, or his $1.1 million contract becomes fully guaranteed for next season.  No word yet on any decision from the C's.  Keeping Randoplh would give the Celtics 16 players, 4 power forwards, and a payroll that continues to rise above the salary cap and luxury tax threshold.  I want him anyway, they can figure out that...

Is it really fair to say Red Auerbach held onto his Big Three too long?

Now that the dust has settled on the remembrance of the late, great Reggie Lewis, one question still remains: did Red Auerbach really hold onto his Big Three too long? It's been a long held belief that Red should have traded Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish while they still had some value to help the Celtics rebuild for their next championship run. The logic seems...
