Date: April 11, 2012Location: TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, MAFinal Score: 88-86 (OT)Key Players: Rajon Rondo (triple double, 10-10-20), Kevin Garnett (22 points, 12 rebounds)Top Plays: 0:16 (Rondo comes up with a tough steal, dishes to Pierce for 3), 1:12 (Garnett reverse layup and fouled by Pachulia)Rundown/What it meant: I’m combining these sections because, in this game, they were one and the same.You would be well within your rights to wonder how this game could POSSIBLY be above #8 (an impressive win over Miami in South Beach). And perhaps, from a fan’s perspective, this game didn’t mean as much. But this game turned out to be big in the playoff race. The Celtics finished a game behind the Hawks in the overall standings, but Boston finished first in the Atlantic Division, securing the fourth seed in the playoffs. And even though the Celtics closed out the Hawks in six games, meaning they closed the series in Atlanta (more on that later), having home court advantage at the st...

Kevin Garnett’s Anta KG2 “USA”

KG2 USA Chinese  sports brand Anta have just released this patriotic pair of the KG2′s just in time for the Olympics.  The patriotic colorway is a bit surprising since Kevin Garnett’s signature shoes are only outside the US.  In edition to the new shoes, The ANTA website finally has an option for English.  The translations are very entertaining.  KG is described  as “Both...

According to the Silicon Valley’s Mercury News, his Air-ness Michael Jordan and  David Stern will host a super-star studded affair to raise money for the Obama re-election campaign. Among the guests are [...]

Video: Rajon Rondo working out

Caught this video on WEEI the other day. It's from 2011 (Old friend Kendrick Perkins makes an appearance). A couple of observations from the video: One, I think if Rondo was taller he would have been a fantastic post player. He has the moves and trick shots down low. And two, Rondo's jumper has never been as bad as people make it out to be. Statistically speaking, Rondo...

Kevin Garnett & Rajon Rondo Hanging With Snoop Dog AKA Snoop Lion

WEEI First, we had Marquis Daniels and Suge Knight hanging out. Now this. Snoop Doggy Dogg Lion posted this photo with Celtics Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo at rapper Drake‘s OVO Fest in Toronto on Sunday. You’ll remember Snoop changed his last name from Dogg to Lion during a bizarre press conference, claiming he was Bob Marley reincarnated. Of course, Marley...

Closet Dunk Champ?

I came across this picture and thought it was too great not to put up. That is our own Rajon Rondo doing a major dunk back when he was at UK. This kid has some serious hops. With Rondo's passing and ball handling usually taking center stage, we don't really think of him as a high flyer like we do say,  Russell Westbook. But, this photo proves that he can get up there.  ...

Catching Up With a Few Celtics

Yesterday, I posted a photo of Rondo and KG partying with Snoop Doggy Lion or whatever his name is. Today we have updates on a few more Celtics and what they are up to in this offseason. Avery Bradley has been rehabbing his two surgically repaired shoulders, but he has also been out giving back to the community. First up is a video of Avery joining with Cedric Maxwell in visiting...

NBA stops Kevin Garnett from buying AS Roma

The Boston Celtics have a huge soccer fan on their roster by the name of Kevin Garnett. KG has shown his love for the game for some time now and it kind of makes sense that he ages and matures that he would want to invest in the world’s most popular sport. Perhaps following in the footsteps of his rival LeBron James who owns a piece of Liverpool FC, Garnett attempted to put a few...

Kevin Garnett's attempt to purchase share of AS Roma blocked by NBA

Kevin Garnett could live seven lifetimes doing his best Antoine Walker impression and not spend all the money he's made in his NBA career. As opposed to Walker, he tried to take a chunk of that change he's earned and invest it into a soccer club recently. He attempted to purchase a share of AS Roma to be specific, and let that money make more money for him tucked away...

Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo Hang Out With Snoop Dogg at Drake's Music Festival in Toronto (Photo)

Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo may not be playing in this year's Olympics, but they're staying busy this offseason. The two Celtics are apparently in Toronto to attend the OVO music festival, an event hosted by hip-hop artist Drake in his hometown. Once of the other stars in attendance was Snoop Dogg -- a.k.a. Snoop Lion -- and the rapper posed with the Celtics players for...

Stories have been flying around about the relationship between Ray and point guard Rajon Rondo, as well as head coach Doc Rivers.

Random Thoughts on KG, JJ, Doc and More
