In Boston's search for stopgap at point guard, Shelvin Mack's a possibility, among others, sources say. Delonte West isn't a consideration.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 12, 2013 Shelvin Mack is a player in the Celtics D-League affiliate, Maine Red Claws, and really we should expect him to become a Celtic fairly soon. At least as a stop gap option. The note on Delonte West is particularly interesting. West appeared on our list of potential fill-ins (A must read) but as noted there, he's had a couple of off-field issues with Dallas. Something that's been a common occurrence nearly everywhere he's been except Boston (except that one time when he fought Von Wafer). However, things got bad enough with the Mavericks that even Boston is staying away. West was suspended twice within just two weeks during the preseason. Both times for "conduct detrimental to the team". He apparently had an "ugly outburst" following a game the fir...

Kevin Garnett once again makes NBA history in win vs. Nuggets

Last week Kevin Garnett became the first player in NBA history to accumulate 25,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 1,500 steals and 1,500 blocks, a feat that shows his incredible all-around play since entering the league in 1995.

Don't be shocked if Paul Pierce is added to the All-Star team

Comments from the Other Side - Bobcats 2/11

Bobcats fans seem like a decent bunch.  They are sticking with their team through all the lean years, which says a lot.   They also felt bad when Barbosa went down unlike several other teams whose fans would be cheering (or wishing for) an injury on the Celtics.   While I hate to lose any game, this one wasn't too bad.  They were competitive right to the end in spite of...
