Found January 22, 2013 on Red's Army:
Sullinger praised KG for mentorship; also credited his ass. “My mama blessed me with a beautiful backside.” — Scott @ WFNY (@WFNYScott) January 22, 2013 The kid’s got some padding back there, that’s for sure. Maybe that’s the Celtics problem… a bunch of guys with skinny asses. This isn’t the first time Sullinger’s backside has come up… “He has the perfect body for rebounding,” Garnett said. “He can take the pounding, bump a little bit, and he has great anticipation, comes to the ball and he has great hands. Put that all in the pot and you’ve got Jared Sullinger and that makes him one of the great up-and-coming rebounders in our game.” I remember when coaches taught me how to rebound.  It was simple: bury your ass into the middle of the guy’s thigh and push.  It was their way of saying get low and get position.  Sullinger’s roundness (remember, he’s not fat) is just an unfair competitive advantage.

Doc Rivers: trades are on the way if team doesn't start to "play hard"

If you thought the trade rumors were bad before, just wait. According to Boston Globe writer Gary Washburn, Doc Rivers ripped into the Celtics Sunday night after their loss to Detroit 103-88. One tactic he unleashed was threatening to shakeup the roster to get players who are “committed to being a good basketball team.” I gotta either find the right combination, the right...

Kevin Garnett is frustrated with his play, says he needs to find more ways to help the team

Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tonight - Cavaliers 1/22

The Celtics, coming off their embarrassing loss to the Pistons, will head to Cleveland tonight to face the Cavs. The Cavs received some horrible news yesterday when it was revealed that Anderson Varejo will miss the rest of the season due to a blood clot in his lung. It was just a case of bad luck. The Celtics have had their own problems recently. After their loss in Detroit, Doc...

Avery Bradley tweets: "Nobody will ever score 40 on me unless they take 40 shots"

Here's Avery Bradley's original tweet (which he has taken down, since it appeared on CSNNE): "Please stop sayin he gave me 40. Nobody will ever score 40 on me unless they take 40 shots" Of course Kyrie Irving just scored 40 on Rajon Rondo a couple hours before Bradley tweeted this. Lest anyone make a big deal about this remember, Rondo when asked about Bradley&...

Paul Pierce: Celtics Lack Mental Toughness

“I think that’s the one thing this team lacks, that mental toughness, man. When we lose our confidence, I’ve never been on teams like that. We got to stay together, we got to play with confidence. “Yeah, definitely, it hurts me to say that. It’s like I really sometimes don’t believe it….We get down on ourselves. We got to go out there and believe we can win every game...

George Stephanopoulos Thinks Bill Russell Is Morgan Freeman

This is what happens when you let George Stephanopoulos call an inauguration ceremony attended by the greatest member of the Boston Celtics. This wouldn’t be so bad if Bill wasn’t wearing a Celtics hat. Where are the spotters from ABC? Maybe a simple, “George, coming up is a shot of Celtics legend Bill Russell,” in his ear before giving him the Bill Russell shot. Let’s...

What's with the Pistons bizarre continued domination of the Celtics?

Greg Monroe (middle) loves playing the Celtics. It's been more than a year since the Celtics beat the Pistons.  On December 30th, 2011 Boston knocked off Detroit 96-85 in their first game at the Garden last season.  Since that day the Pistons are 36-63 against all other teams in the NBA combined, but 4-0 vs. Boston.  In fact, in those four games the Celtics have never even...

Melo vs. KG: Preparing for Round 2 on Thursday

If you haven’t heard about the incident between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett when the Knicks played the Celtics at the Garden on January 7th, which led to Melo getting suspended for a game, then I’m not too sure where you’ve been. After Melo and Garnett were playing very rough against each other all game, including picking up a double technical, Melo went screaming towards...

Box Score: Celtics 90, Cavaliers 95

Boston came into this game hurting. Losers of 3 straight, the Celtics surely looked at this game in Cleveland as a prime opportunity to get things back on track. Kyrie Irving had other ideas. “Mr 4th Quarter” disguised himself as “Mr 1st Quarter” in this one as he came out looking to make a statement against the East’s All-Star starting PG Rajon Rondo. Irving was aggressive...

Celtics-Cavaliers Live: Jason Terry, C’s Shoot to Get Back on Track in Cleveland

8 a.m. ET: Go ahead and try to figure out these Celtics, because all our attempts thus far have failed. They head to Cleveland on a three-game losing streak, and not even the dire situation in which the Cavaliers find themselves is enough to convince us that the Celtics will take care of business. The Cavs (10-32) are reeling from Monday’s news that center Anderson Varejao, who...
