Remember during preseason and the beginning of the season when Celtics sideline reporter Greg Dickerson was missing from the CSNNE telecasts? I recall being worried that he got fired during the offseason and lamented why not Gary Tanguay. I've always liked the job Dickerson has done. It turns out he's had to battle a lot in life, that we never knew about.Imagine coping with the tics, twitches and urges of Tourette syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder, the threat of seizures and memory loss from epilepsy and the possible side effects of medication while interviewing Celtics captain Paul Pierce on television on the Garden parquet after he hit a last-second, game-winning shot. Welcome to Greg Dickerson's world. The Celtics sideline reporter for Comcast SportsNet disclosed a couple of weeks ago that he had been diagnosed with epilepsy after suffering two seizures, the second of which forced him to leave a Celtics broadcast at the Garden. But during an interview with...

Kevin Garnett will not play tonight

Twitter / @SeanGrandePBP: Kevin Garnett won't play t ... via kwout This is just breaking.. no word on what the issue is.  He of course recently missed time with the hip pointer, so you can probably assume that's the issue, but we'll have to wait and see what the actual issue is.  

Bulls 89, Celtics 80: That was not beautiful

After that elephant stopped sitting on the Boston offense midway through the third quarter, the Celtics actually exhibited a fair amount of pride (not to mention a zone defense John Chaney would be proud of) to mount a comeback and actually take a fourth quarter lead. But the lead was brief and Chicago, without MVP Derrick Rose, tap-danced on the interior all night long en route...

Will Rajon Rondo Be Suspended for Flipping Ball Off Referee During Loss to Pistons?

Things went from bad to worse for the Celtics on Sunday. Not only did the C's drop their third straight to the lowly Pistons, but Rajon Rondo was ejected for throwing the ball at referee Sean Wright following a no-call. It wasn't an extremely forceful throw, and you could argue that a foul should have been called on the play, during which Rondo got leveled on his way to the...

Comments from the other side - Bulls 2/16

 Another disappointing loss.   It really is pitiful how much they were complaining about the refs when they were getting way more calls than the Celtics were.   What a whiny bunch of fans!!    I'd say to the guy that wants the Celtics really bad in the playoffs.  If the Celtics are healthy - be careful what you wish for!!   I know it's not as much fun when we lose...

Hustle and Flow... Did Rajon's shooting kill Boston's offense last night?

People (ahem, Chuck) have been getting on Rajon Rondo lately.  Some of it is warranted, some of it isn't.  The latest criticism of him came last night when he either (a) took way too many shots and disrupted the flow of the offense or (b) didn't take enough shots in the 4th quarter and disrupted the flow of the offense.   So went back and looked at every one of his 27...
