With the pre-season officially upon us, we here at CelticsLife thought it would be fun to dish out some pre-season award predictions for the Celtics. We came up with eight awards (four positive, four not-so-positive), and will be giving out writer predictions on each of them over the next week or so.
These awards will be named after Celtics greats (and not-so-greats), and hopefully we can have some fun with this. We'll also be posting a poll for everyone to vote on, and be sure to add your two cents in the comment section.
Award #1: The Paul Pierce Award for Team MVP - Writer's pick: Rajon Rondo
Award #2: The P.J. Brown Award for the guy most likely to give the line-up an unexpected boost. - Writer's pick: Kris Humphries
Award #3: The Semih Erden Award for the guy that will be the most fun to sarcastically root for. Writer's pick: Vitor Faverani
Award #4: The Walter McCarty Award for the guy most likely to become Tommy Heinsohn's pet this year. Writer's ...

The Boston Celtics lost a wild one on Wednesday night in Providence to the New York Knicks 103-102. But they may have discovered a key member of this team, especially in the absence of Rajon Rondo.
Phil Pressey led the team with 13 points, seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes of action (to go along with no turnovers). Here of some quotes from CSNNE after Wednesday...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“Jeff’s fine,” Stevens said. “We’re not going to start Jeff tonight, but that has nothing to do with Jeff. It has everything to do with what we want to tinker with. We’re asking him to do a lot. We...
Tonight’s Celtics-Sixers game in Delaware started off as your typical preseason contest. Sloppy. The two teams combined for 11 turnovers in the first quarter and shot an atrocius 14 of 41 from the field. Boston did however finish quarter one with a lead for the first time this preseason, 21-20. They had a pretty balanced attack, with seven different Celtics scoring in the quarter...
Jeff Green has experienced his share of ups and downs in Boston. After the young, talented scorer was traded to the Celtics in exchange for fan-favorite Kendrick Perkins almost 50 games into the 2010-11 season, Green underwent a tough adjustment phase. In particular, he saw his minutes dramatically fall from the 37.0 per-game he was getting in Oklahoma City to only 23.5 with the...
Both MarShon Brooks (migraine) and Jordan Crawford (death in the family) who missed Tuesday's practice were in attendance at today's practice.

Very interesting that every player was out...
Boston Celtics player Phil Pressey had a good Friday evening scoring six points while recording four rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Pressey played 18 minutes for the Celtics on Friday and could make the roster as a backup.
Knicks fans are always fun. They usually have an overinflated opinion of their team (not unlike us Celtics fans). They usually hate the Celtics with a passion, but I guess since the Celtics are rebuilding this season and they don't see them as a threat, they were almost complementary to them at times. They are more focused on beating their cross town rivals, the Nets...

Last night's 103-102 loss to the New York Knicks was full of positives. Well- the end of the game was. The end of the game saw the Celtics cut a 23 point lead down to 1 in the midst of a 20-4 run to close the four quarter. Many of those sparks came from Celtics new big, Vitor Faverani.
Faverani has 9 points, 3 standing ovations from the Celtics bench, 2 slam dunks and 1 step...
End first: After one quarter in Manchester, the Celtics lead the Knicks, 28-15. The C's started this one off with a 10-0 run, but since then have slowed down a little. They're still playing well, but not as amazing as earlier. Anyway, Jordan Crawford's currently leading them with 7 points. Keep watching.

Can Brad Stevens develop the Boston Celtics into a title contender again?
There were thirteen coaching changes in the NBA this off-season and the biggest surprise was when the Boston Celtics hired Brad Stevens.
After Doc Rivers was sent to the Los Angeles Clippers for a 2014 unprotected first-round pick, the speculation increased that the Celtics would bring in a young coach because...
It was Opening Night of the 1997-98 season. The Celtics and Bulls were at opposite ends of the spectrum. The C’s were coming off a dismal 15-67 season, with hopes that new coach Rick Pitino could inject some life into a comatose franchise. The Chicago Bulls on the other hand were riding high. Four months earlier, they beat the Utah Jazz to win their second straight NBA title,...
