The Celtics franchise is one with winning traditions, and when you put on the uniform, there is always pressure to win. I got to Boston early in my career; our team was very young and I think we were mostly expected to be competitive in the league. The crowd was always quick to know, if we didn’t bring it you heard boos at home. For the most part, we had a lot of fun. As we matured and gained experience we positioned ourselves to be contenders in the East.
When you play college ball at a powerhouse school, you are prepared to deal with that pressure. I believe spending my college years at Kentucky prepared me for the NBA experience and the expectations that came with it.
I loved being a Celtic. Boston has the best sport fans of any city — they are passionate and knowledgable. I enjoyed my time playing here and especially giving back to the community. Coming into a historic organization at an early point in my career was more than I could have hoped for.
I recently moved back to Bost...

Clearly Jason Terry's presence is having an effect on Pierce. Terry had this done shortly after signing with Boston:

It's Monday, so that means ESPN's weekly Marc Stein NBA power rankings are out. In this edition the 11-9 Celtics find themselves at #14. Despite two easy wins, and just a single one-point OT loss on the road, Boston falls a spot from #13 last week. I still don't understand Stein's infatuation with the 10-9 Bucks, who again rank several places ahead of the C...
8 a.m. ET: The Celtics will play a great game on Wednesday, as will their opponent, the Mavericks. Or maybe only one team will play well. Or maybe neither. Nobody can really tell anymore with these two teams.
The Celtics and the Mavericks each made some interesting moves during the offseason. While the Celtics went all-out with depth to put them in position to contend for the next...
Locking down Philly isn't exactly "impressive."
There's been a lot of talk the past few days about the Celtics recent improvements on the defensive end. After giving up 100 points or more in 7 of their first 14 games, Boston has now held their last 6 opponents under the century mark. However, there is a distinct possibility that this has very little to do with...
Paul Pierce scored 34 points, including a 3-pointer at the start of the second overtime to give Boston the lead for good, and the Celtics held on to beat the Dallas Mavericks 117-115 on Wednesday night.
Rajon Rondo had 16 points, 15 assists and nine rebounds, and Kevin Garnett added 16 points for Boston.
O.J. Mayo scored 24 points for Dallas, and Shawm Marion had 16 points, 11...
With the Mavs facing the Celtics, ex-Mav Jason Terry's new team, head coach Rick Carlisle said "Does a bear [expletive] in the woods?" when asked if the team misses Terry.
Apparently Doc Rivers was too busy being the head coach of the Boston Celtics to teach his son some valuable lessons in life.
Doc's son Austin Rivers, who plays guard for the New Orleans Hornets (soon to be Pelicans?) has a tough time shopping for groceries, and apparently can't parallel park. If we can take anything from this video it may be showing us that the driving...

Maybe Jason Terry's play last season for the Dallas Mavericks against the Boston Celtics is a big reason why he's wearing green and white now.
Terry will face the Mavericks for the first time since joining the Celtics in Wednesday night's matchup in Boston.

Rajon Rondo was also on the sideline wearing a Wes Welker jersey. A pretty awesome way for some of the Celtics to spend their day off. For more on the Patriots, visit nePatriotsLife.com
The Boston Celtics have made significant strides defensively. They'll need that improvement to continue as they begin a stretch of three straight games on the road - the first two coming against a pair of the NBA's top offensive teams.
The Celtics go for their third consecutive win and fourth in five games when they face the Houston Rockets on Friday night.

By “Jet” there are two meanings which consist of Jason Terry but also the Boston Celtics can start to gain momentum into takeoff before a huge three-game road trip against the Houston Rockets (9-11), San Antonio Spurs (18-4), and Chicago Bulls (11-9).
First, it’s the Dallas Mavericks. Subsequently, this Wednesday ESPN clash will feature...
