Ray Allen was obviously the hugest story of the off-season from a Celtics perspective. The aging veteran's contract was up and, after being delegated to a bench role, he decided to take his talents - along with a sizable paycut - to South Beach and the rival Miami Heat.
Ray was called Judas and much worse before fans moved onto getting excited about Jason Terry and Courtney Lee. Celtics fans convinced themselves that the Celtics not only didn't need Ray Allen, but they were better off without him.
Based on how the Celtics season has gone thus far, it looks like Ray might have made the right decision. The storied franchise and perennial contender has a losing record around halfway into the season as they till try to find their chemistry.
The team is still getting used to playing together, but that excuse is starting to fall on deaf ears. While Terry and Lee were great additions on paper, you have to recognize at this point that it hasn't panned out.
When Ray Allen si...

BOSTON — The last time Paul Pierce stayed home for NBA All-Star Weekend, the Celtics’ record made it difficult to whine about the snub. The Celtics went 24-58 in the last year of the pre-”New Big Three” era while Pierce, for the first time in his career, spent more than a month watching with major injury as his team give away game after game.
There is no serious injury this...
Rondo and Garnett come together as All-Stars
The Boston Celtics have landed two players into the starting lineup of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett will both be starting this year for the Eastern Conference.
For Rondo this will be his fourth trip to the All-star game and the first time he will be starting. In his first three appearances he has averaged...
Everyone is waiting for Boston to make that inevitable run that the team always seems to have within it. The Celtics are a veteran team with championship aspirations and knows exactly how to pace themselves.
Something though seems off about the 20-20 Celtics and they seem much more in the thick of the fight near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
In perhaps a motivational...

On Tuesday night the Celtics played their second of two road games, this time in Cleveland against the Cavaliers. The Celtics came in off a bad loss to the Detroit Pistons that caused Doc Rivers to make some harsh statements. Following their loss Doc threatened that if this team didn't get it together big changes were ahead. The team looked to bounce back and stop their three...
8:00: The Celtics, coming off their tough loss to the Cavs, will host the Knicks tonight at the Garden. The C's currently sit at just 20-21 with a lack of hope in the fan base. If they win tonight, then I'll feel confident again. But I doubt that that will happen. As always, updates will be available here after every quarter. Enjoy the game.
Our guys in green continued to struggle last night, as they dropped their 4th in a row. This time they fall to Kyrie & company. Behind Irving’s 40 pts, Cleveland wins 95-90. C’s next play on Thursday night as the Knicks come to town. Tip-off is at 8pm EST.
Check out some photos & GIFs from last night’s game, including Avery Bradley’s sick chase-down block on Dion Waiters.
