Not the type of accolade that Courtney Lee was looking for. Lee has been named a starter on SI.com's All-Disappointment Team joining Deron Williams, D.J. Augustin, Ersan Ilyasova, and Andrea Bargnani. Here's what Sports Illustrated had to say about Lee:Fits between team and player rarely come cleaner than the meeting of Lee, a skilled and versatile combo guard who plays solid on-ball defense, and the Celtics, a team that needed Lee’s fill-the-gaps dynamism to boost their offensive potential. Lee may not be prolific enough from the perimeter to replace Ray Allen outright, but he seemed a fitting substitute for a team that has every incentive to get younger and quicker as to best prolong the careers of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
That’s a quaint notion, but hasn’t quite worked out in practice. Lee is making a career-low 28 percent from three-point range, and at his absolute best has been a functional stopgap for Boston’s second unit. His complementary game has grow...

Kevin Garnett had some thoughts on the Celtics losing big to the Clippers, going so far as to say the team gave them too much respect.
Two former Celtics were in the D-League news this week as the Canton Charge sent the rights to former Celtic Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants today for former Celtic JaJuan Johnson and Fort Wayne’s 2013 first-round draft pick.
The 6-foot-10 Johnson, a big man who would rather shoot jump shots than bang down low, averaged 13.2 points...
An under .500 record through 29 games, it is safe to say the 2012-13 Boston Celtics have been a disappointment thus far. But why is this team struggling so much? What exactly are its problems? Let us take a closer look at the areas of struggle so far this season.
One of the main problems is just how bad the Celtics offense is. Currently sitting at an OTRG of 102.5 (ranked 23rd...

Wow. What is there to say? The Kings outplayed the Celtics the whole game, except for the second quarter which the Celtics won 31-30. The defense did not show up, allowing the Kings to shoot 53.7% from the field and 50% from 3. DeMarcus Cousins got his first triple-double. Jason Thompson, Isiah Thomas, and John Salmons scored over 20 points for the...
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from northern California.
Though the Warriors were the team playing a back-to-back, Boston was the one that looked old and tired.
Especially when compared to the 20-year-old Barnes, whose fresh legs and athleticism bothered Pierce all night. Pierce...

Imagine for a moment a top 15 player in the NBA was given the rights by his team to come and film a movie in which he plays for the Celtics. Think of James Harden today. Now what if I told you this actually took place?
It did in a movie called Amazing Grace and Chuck, and why there's so little coverage on it today is beyond me. I remember seeing this film a long time ago...
