After a disappointing debut for the Celtics at the end of the 2010-2011 season, many were critical of the rather large contract the Celtics signed Jeff Green to this offseason. However, Doc Rivers remained confident in Jeff Green despite his struggles during his brief time with the Celtics:“Trying to do that on the run, with 25 games left, is nearly impossible,” Rivers said...
These Turkish teams are not to be taken lightly. Despite a warning from Dionte Christmas, an alumnus of the Turkish Basketball League, that Fenerbahce Ulker would be no pushover, the Celtics never seemed able to get in rhythm on Friday. Boston's first exhibition foe of the 2012-13 season controlled the pace of the game, got to the free throw line more effectively and protected...
We read previously that Rajon Rondo organized practices for the Celtics in LA and the guys played some football. Looks like some of that is carrying over to Turkey now. Check out the video above of Rondo throwing a touchdown pass to Jeff Green. Hopefully we will see some crazy court-long alley oops from Rondo to Green this season.

In the above video we find out that there were a couple of fiery exchanges at the end of a very good practice today. That tells me that they are really competing in practice and that it will be a relief when they finally get a chance to play against another team. We also learn that Jeff Green is playing very well and gives the team a lot of versatility. The point guard for the...

After several days of drilling reminiscent of Hoosiers, Celtics.Com is reporting today that the Boston Celtics scrimmaged. All reports indicate that Doc Rivers allowed the players to run the show, as he sat back and enjoyed the beauty that is the 2012-13 Boston Celtics. Paul Pierce was excited to run a few plays that had not [...]
Austin Rivers is 20 years old. He's a rookie. He's ready to lead.
"It doesn't matter what age, in my opinion," Rivers said. "I think it all starts with showing by example. You can be 17, 18, 26, 30, if you show by example and you go out there and give effort and work hard and you lead, I think naturally you'll be a leader.
"That's one thing...
The name alone is enough to give you chills:
Even for me, when I heard the Celtics signed him, I skipped the analysis for a little bit and just sat to let the anguish of the moment wash over me.
We signed Darko.
Of course, when you look at it objectively, veteran minimum deals are inherently no risk because the league pays a good portion of the salary and you can just cut...

Darko painting other players shows team first attitude? A stretch-- I just could not pass up using this picture.Darko Milicic has bounced around quite a bit in the NBA, with each team taking on his talents perhaps hopelessly believing it has what it takes to turn this seven-footer into a legitimate NBA center. As much documented, the talent is probably there but we will never...
