Found April 11, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson has some fond memories of his brief career in Boston. Johnson was drafted 10th overall by the Celtics in 2001 and dealt to the Suns later that season in a five-player deal. He took time after the game Wednesday to reflect on his brief stay. Johnson spoke to CSNNE's Jessica Camerato. It was brief, but every time I walk in this arena I've got a vivid imagination about how I used to walk through this tunnel and the locker room was right over there," he told "It's nothing like going back to Phoenix or Atlanta, but don't get me wrong, me playing my short time here in Boston was a great one." Johnson is still confused as to why he was traded after starting 33 games in Boston. He said he didn't see the trade coming and thought he was playing well. According to Basketball Reference, Johnson averaged 6.3 ppg, 2.9 rpg and 1.5 apg in almost 21 minutes in Boston. His favorite memory was facing off against the grea...

Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo has come around on Jeff Green

Jeff Green has been polarizing player for many Celtics fans. Some love him; love the potential, and the flashes of greatness. Some hate him simply because he was the piece we got back for Perkins, and others can’t stand him, think he’s overrated, not that good etc. Coming out of college he was hearing much of the same stuff, even from the NBA coaching circle. Before last night’s...

Brandon Bass posterizes Brook Lopez

LOOK OUT, young fella! Dunkers in the building! You know how you were always taught to force your man middle? This is a great example of how that fails to work. Brandon Bass blows by Reggie Evans and into the lane, which generally isn’t a bad thing for the defense, but a late rotation by Brook Lopez, who looked as if he had no idea that Bass could dunk, results in Brook paying...

Report: Clippers could pursue Paul Pierce this summer

The trade deadline has long since passed, and the Celtics are about to embark on their 6th consecutive playoff run. You would think that the team could concentrate on that—rather than yet another round of trade rumors—but you'd be wrong. Of course now the rumors have shifted from the trade deadline, to the summer. But the names remain the same—mainly future Hall of Famers Paul...
