We all know the jokes.  The Celtics are so old, they put Geritol in the Gatorade buckets.  They’re so old, medicare covers half the team’s payroll.  They’re so old, Dick Bavetta asks to referee their games so they can feel young again. When the Celtics got the commitment from Jason Terry, the joke machine went into over-drive.  Terry is about to be 35.  So is Paul Pierce.  Kevin Garnett is 36.  They are key contributors to the Celtics. But from there, there is a significant drop off.  The next oldest guy on the roster after those three players is Brandon Bass (27). Taking into account the 12 players currently on, or expected to be on, the Celtics roster (Bradley, Rondo, Pierce, Garnett, Bass, Terry, Green, Johnson, Moore, Melo, Sullinger, Joseph), the average age of the Boston Celtics is… … 26.3 years old. To put that into perspective, 10 teams in the NBA last season were younger than that.  The young Sixers team that the Celtics beat?  They’re basically the same age as this curren...

Paul Pierce P2 V autographed & game used

Check out an extremely rare pair of Celtkicks: the Nike “P2 V”.  These are an amazing pair of kicks for any sneakerhead to score. While chatting online w/some Celtics fans from China, I came across these game used & signed beauties. Before Paul’s kicks officially became the “Air Legacy”, Nike simply called them the “P2″. This pair came out in 2009 after The Truth...

Letting go of Dallas is hard for Jason Terry

ESPN "I was in Dallas eight years, played with some great teammates and had a great coach and a great owner," said Terry, who averaged 15.1 points last season and shot 37.8 percent from beyond the arc. "But what the city meant to me is priceless. Without them, I'm nothing. The Jet was born in Dallas, right there in Dallas. So, I always have a home in Dallas and...

Dallas never made an attempt to re-sign Jason Terry

The Dallas Mavericks were once seen as one of the more aggressive franchises in the NBA when it came to free agent signings. Almost every summer they would be busy landing players in an attempt to bolster their lineup. But curiously, this offseason hasn’t gone quite that way. They missed out on signing Deron Willams and Jason Kidd decided to spurn them to head to the Knicks, mainly...

Doc Rivers Told Jason Terry He Was Celtics' 'No. 1 Priority' in Free Agency

Veteran shooting guard Jason Terry was ready to stick with the Mavericks, his team of the last eight years. But one very persuading call from Celtics coach Doc Rivers -- and a lackluster response from Dallas -- apparently changed the situation. "Boston was the first to call me, and Doc Rivers got on the phone and said, 'We need you. You're the No. 1 priority," Terry...

Report: Celtics Still Interested in Acquiring O.J. Mayo

While Jason Terry will help fill the void left by Ray Allen, the Celtics could still look to add some backcourt depth. O.J. Mayo is one name that's been tossed around throughout the offseason, and the Celtics apparently aren't closing the book on acquiring the free-agent guard. The C's are still interested in acquiring Mayo, according to CSNNE.com, but they may have to...

The Jet leaves Dallas behind

Jason Terry helped the Dallas Mavericks win their first ever NBA championship. Aside from Dirk Nowitzki (and probably Mark Cuban), he’s been the face of their franchise for the last decade. I wasn’t surprised that Dallas let him go to the Boston Celtics, they’re a team that needs to get younger rather than clinging to the past, but apparently Terry expected more of an effort...

Grading the Deal: Boston re-signs Jeff Green & Brandon Bass

<img $ca="true" border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3thwM1JUhdo/T_2LUzCa51I/AAAAAAAAEHI/asrIFowBFAM/s1600/2.jpg" /> Boston is foregoing the chance to rebuild and bringing the gang back together. However, I believe they are actually doing a little bit of both by signing two guys under 26 years old to 3-4 year deals as decent money to build...

C’s Land the Jet!

Veteran shooting guard Jason Terry will nullify the loss of Ray Allen.The Boston Celtics may have lost once beloved shooting guard Ray Allen to their bitter rivals, the Miami Heat, but the good news for Celtics fans that want to see the C’s make another run or two at the title before breaking up their aging core of veterans, is that they landed an equally adept three-point shooter...

Free-agent frenzy alters NBA outlook, again

Steve Nash is a Laker. Jason Terry is a Celtic. Ray Allen is a Heat, and Dwight Howard would rather be anything than a Magic. Welcome to modern-day NBA free agency, where the money really is greener on the other side. OK, maybe not entirely. Sometimes, players find out that joining the team of your choice isnt everything its cracked up to be. Anyone who follows the Knicks can...

O.J. Mayo's Ceiling Higher, But Courtney Lee Makes More Sense If Celtics Make Move for Guard

The loss of Ray Allen stings a little bit less knowing Jason Terry is ready to throw on Green. But the Celtics could still use some backcourt depth, especially if Avery Bradley misses the start of the season. O.J. Mayo and Courtney Lee are reported to be two potential targets for Boston. Both would be welcomed additions, but acquiring them would take a bit of finagling, as a sign...

O.J. Mayo still interests Boston Celtics, according to report

Despite evidence that O.J. Mayo’s development has stagnated or even begun working in the wrong direction, Danny Ainge seems to have set his sights on the free agent and will explore any avenue to acquire him.The Celtics are reportedly still interested in Mayo, even without much in the way of assets to deal for him or any cap space whatsoever with which to sign him outright. ...

Celtics Move On Minus Ray Allen

The addition of former Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Terry helps mitigate the loss of Ray Allen for the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics should remain among the top teams in the Eastern Conference in 2012-’13 even without Ray Allen. Kevin Garnett’s decision to return to the Celtics, just before he was set to become one of the biggest free agents on the market, takes the sting...
