NESN.com’s Emily Casey is checking to see if you have enough Celtics knowledge to complete this episode of NESN Trivia. Play it now above.

Recently, I posted A Few Random Jeff Green Thoughts. Those thoughts were mostly around the possible reasons for his signing being imminent for well over a month. We still don't have the answer to what is holding up his signing, but he's been working out and playing pick up games and so I'm thinking it has more to do with the language and conditions in the contract...
Boston Celtics star Kevin Garnett is a physically imposing figure. When he yells, you should probably listen, take notes, and maybe check your underwear to make sure the coast is clear.
Shooting guard Avery Bradley realized this early on in his career. The 21-year-old recently discussed how much leadership Garnett brings to the table, even admitting he was once a little terrified...
In late July, Brandon Bass held “Reach Back Week” in his native Louisiana. It featured a celebrity bowling event, basketball camps and a backpack & school supplies drive for local children. The basketball camps all took place in communities that Bass grew-up in. He wants children from those same neighborhoods to know that they too should dream big. “I believe that you...
Boston has an irrational fixation with Antoine Walker. Yes, he had a few nice seasons with the Celtics, but he was also a wild chucker who twice shot under 40% for entire seasons in his prime. He also shot once 25.6% from 3 in his early years as a Celtic. He then became a journeyman who squandered his $100 million fortune… thus epitomizing just about everything that was...
One of newest members of the Boston Celtics is former Mavericks guard Jason Terry and it appears that he got a new tattoo to celebrate joining one of the more storied franchises in NBA history.Check out the photo of the championship tattoo that he shared on his Twitter page:(Courtesy of Larry Brown Sports)
Forget that Jason Terry will score, and score in bunches, which is exactly what the Celtics need. Forget that he’s a former Sixth Man of the Year joining a bench that often struggled to produce last season, and that he should prove quite helpful.He just sounds awesome. I want to listen to him spit Celtics-driven confidence and describe why he got his Boston Celtics tattoo all...
Kevin Garnett had something of a resurgence in his NBA career this past season. With Doc Rivers limiting his minutes throughout the regular season, KG was a force in the playoffs, putting the lid on the prevailing belief in NBA circles that The Big Ticket’s best days were behind him and he no longer was [...]
CLNS Radio is pleased to announce that Boston Celtics big man Chris Wilcox will be appearing on the Celtics Late Night Show tonight at 8 p.m. EST. Last season, prior to discovering a heart ailment, Wilcox grabbed the attention of Celtics Nation with his gritty style of play. This year, he is back [...]

Boston Celtics' Jason Terry has exuded confidence ever since he stepped on an NBA court. From his cocky, brash times with the Mavericks to now this.
Terry recently took to Twitter to show off his new tattoo which once again shows he has a ton of confidence with Boston and has high expectations for the Celtics heading into next season.
"The Jet" got himself a new...

Danny took his share of abuse for the Celtics fortunes over his first 3 years on the job. When he became the Celtics GM he said that he had a 5 year plan to rebuild the Celtics and get them back to contention. His plan was to gather "chips" and then trade them for established stars. Many fans were disillusioned with the "youth movement" and felt that the Celtics...
Boston Celtics forward Larry Bird came into his own in the 1983-’84 season.
The fourth best team in Boston Celtics’ history was the 1983-’84 team. This squad was coming off a devastating loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in the postseason the year before with a very talented roster. They had too many players who filled similar roles. President Red Auerbach signed guard Danny Ainge...
The Olympics are over. Now we face a month and a half until we get to watch basketball again. Most of the moves have been made and so there won't be any excitement of big signings. The players who have just been signed (which is the majority of the Celtics) can't be traded yet and so we won't see any blockbuster trades. I kind of like most of the signings anyway and...
USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo would love to have the experience, poise and stature of coach Mike Krzyzewski on Team USA's bench for another Olympics. But with Coach K saying he's done after two gold medals (and a world championship), the powers that be at USA Basketball are looking for the next best thing. That may be Celtics coach Doc Rivers. Rivers is reportedly...
