The Big Three
There is never a time in a sports fan’s life that so much
emotion, confusion and wondering occur than when your team’s dynasty is moving
on in a different direction. Last
night, many believe, was the last time Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen
played a game together on the Celtics.
Most Celtic fans are in a panic, some were ready for the downfall and
few are optimistic about the future.
Let’s say goodbye (potentially) to one of the best
basketball teams this decade. They will be ranked behind the Lakers (two teams)
and the Spurs. The one item with
this team was health, which cost them a second title. A lot believe the Kendrick Perkins trade prevented multiple
rings. In 2009, Garnett went down
after a historical start after winning the title. The Celtics still managed to get to the Eastern Conference
Finals. In 2010, they make it to
the NBA Finals, only to lose their center (Kendrick Perkins) to a knee
injury. They lost the last two
BEST OF MAXIM
Fans of the Boston Celtics better be prepared to hear stories like this for the next few months.
While we await word of whether or not Kevin Garnett will return for his 18th season, we are already hearing that a team not named the Boston Celtics is interested in his services should he decide to lace up his ANTA kicks next year. The interested team is the San Antonio Spurs...
Are the Spurs looking to pair Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde on the court at the same time next season?
If a report by Buck Harvey of The San Antonio Express-News has any legs to it, they just might.
Harvey reports that a source in the Spurs organization told him this weekend that the team will look at all options this summer, including unrestricted free agent Kevin Garnett.
Just one day after the Celtics were ousted from the NBA Playoffs, everyone around the league is speculating where The Big Three will go. Ray Allen to Miami? Paul Pierce traded? KG leaving?
On March 31, Minnesota wanted so much. Too much.
No matter that Kevin Garnett had taken the Target Center court three times already as a Celtic. No matter that he'd been gone for five years; that he should have been more a memory than a source of such crippling insecurity. He was still Kevin Garnett, after all, but these were different desires, different hopes for the man who...
Ray Allen will have ankle surgery early Wednesday morning to remove bone spurs from his ankle, according to Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald.Ray Allen vowed to take care of his problematic right ankle quickly, and the Celtics guard was as good as his word.Allen will have surgery to remove bone spurs from the ankle at 6 a.m. on Wednesday at New England Baptist Hospital, according...
A lot of things could happen in free agency this offseason. Kevin Garnett joining, or even replacing, Tim Duncan with the San Antonio Spurs does not seem likely to be one of them. Because offhand remarks often set off the most absurd speculation, the report that a person within the San Antonio Spurs had "tossed out" Garnett as a free agent possibility drew a lot of attention...
Allen will have surgery to remove bone spurs from the ankle at 6 a.m. on Wednesday at New England Baptist Hospital, according to a source.
The problem, which first surfaced during in Los Angeles during the C’s’ eight-game road trip in mid-March, eventually forced Allen to miss 15 regular-season games as well as the first two games of the Celtics’ first-round...
The Boston Celtics forced the Miami Heat to the brink of elimination. Kevin Garnett channelled his inner "Big Ticket" in the process. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce looked more their age. Through 20 postseason games, KG posted playoff averages of 19.2 points and 10.3 rebounds per night. Allen and Pierce did not help things as much as Celtics Nation hoped they would.
After the Miami Heat beat the Boston Celtics in last night's Eastern Conference Finals game seven to move onto the 2012 NBA Finals, Celtics star Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo decided to hit the showers and skip the post game pleasantries.
Watch as both Rondo and Garnett leave the court without shaking hands with any member of the Miami Heat:
One third of the Boston Celtics’ “big three” will go under the knife on Wednesday evening. Ray Allen will undergo surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle.
An injury that caused Allen to miss 15 regular season games and two playoff games against the Atlanta Hawks in the first round of the eastern conference playoffs.
These nagging ankle issues were also the cause...
Two days after the San Antonio Spurs were eliminated from the Western Conference Finals, I wrote a piece about what areas the Spurs need to look for this summer in either free agency, the draft, or their international players for team improvement. The areas were another attacking guard and fourth big man who had a perimeter shot and could play defense alongside Tim Duncan.Two nights...
During an appearance this morning on WEEI, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix hinted at a riff between Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen:
“There is going to be a ton of interest in Ray Allen in the offseason,” Mannix said. “He’s going to be able to pick and choose where he wants to play.”
Allen conceivably could return to Boston, but Mannix said that decision might be affected...
Ray Allen will soon undergo surgery to remove bone spurs in his right ankle.
The Boston Celtics were moved by the gesture, and it was not difficult to see why. Paul Pierce and company had played one of the worst games of their NBA careers, and what they heard from the stands at the TD Garden in the fourth quarter of Thursday's demoralizing loss was not boos or jeers, but a steady chant of "Let's go Celtics!" that lasted the final three minutes...
They are the two premier big men of this era - San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan and Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett. Both have dominated the paint offensively and defensively, won NBA titles and garnered many accolades along the way. But now that the season is over and their NBA careers are coming to an end soon, could TD and KG be forming the next "Twin Towers" in San...
