Found December 02, 2011 on Red's Army:
A lot of information has been filtering out over the past few days.  Well, at least it seems that way.  The fact is, its basically the same information with the names being changed a bit.  Well, Chuck and I are notoriously lazy, and we don't feel like writing the same post over and over again.  So here's one post with all the information minus a few blanks.  Print out this post... follow me or Chuck on Twitter to get the new name... and then fill in the blanks.  Enjoy --- Sources say the Boston Celtics are among the teams interested in the services of [ free agent ].  Because the Celtics are very likely going to be limited to the lower, $3 million mid-level exception due to the like re-signings of Glen Davis and Jeff Green, signing [ free agent ] will be a challenge.  One possibility is a sign-and-trade, likely Glen Davis, to acquire [ free agent ] but it's unclear if a straight up swap for Davis will be enough to get the deal done.  The Celtics have also been ...

How to Sell Me Celtics Tickets

After the success of last season, the worst thing the NBA could do was miss time because of a lockout.

I am not South Beach

I am not South Beach.  I am a Celtic. Fantastic video!  This was posted on Youtube by the Boston Celtics PR group.  Kudos for Redsarmy with the find.  This makes me want to run through walls for basketball, maybe I will bust through the wall at Game On tonight for The Basketball Jones Tour.  I need to find this song and put it on my ipod immediately.
