Found January 04, 2012 on SLAM Online:
  KG must have been pretty upset with his play in the fourth during Monday’s contest with the Washington Wizards. The Big Ticket has always been an intense dude, but recently he has come across as even more high strung. Celtics assistant coach Tyronn Lue did not look pleased to be getting a bath while trying to enjoy the game from his court side seats, but Ray Allen found it pretty funny.

Ray Allen may return to the Celtics lineup on Friday

Flannery also wrote in his piece on that Ray Allen was asked not to go to the team facility today to make sure that he didn't spread his illness around to his other teammates, but that he's feeling better. The Celtics could use Allen on Friday as the Pacers come to town. Indiana's better than Detroit, Washington and New Jersey, the three teams that the Celtics...

QuickVid: Kevin Garnett has lost his mind (again), thank god!

Well folks, for those of you (and me) questioning the Big Ticket’s intensity, here’s a video of Garnett throwing water all over himself [and Ray Allen] during the C’s recent matchup against the Washington Wizards. It’s been evident that Garnett has needed to get his legs under him. The condensced everything in 2011-12 has hurt [...]

Should the Boston Celtics Trade Rajon Rondo?

Can’t shoot; temperamental; thin-skinned; egotistical. These aren’t the most endearing descriptors, particularly when they’re attached to your starting point guard who, incidentally, also doubles as your best young player and the future of the team. Indeed, to even contemplate handing the reins of the most successful franchise in league history to a character as flawed as those...

Ray Allen wants to re-sign long term with the Boston Celtics

Ray Allen is in the final year of his deal. Then again, it has been well documented that just about everyone on the Celtics roster is in the final year of their deals. Allen will turn 37 years old this summer and while most superstars his age would have started to fizzle out three or four years ago, Ray has continued to build his case as the greatest shooter the sport has ever...

In case you are like me and missed it, here is the video of Kevin Garnett throwing water on himself from Monday's game against the Wizards.

Celtics beat depleted Nets for 4th straight win

The Celtics shook off a lackluster first half blowing out the Nets 89-70 in Boston .  New Jersey was without  Brook Lopez and Deron Williams yet hung with the Celtics in the first half. Boston took control in the 3rd quarter and never looked back in a blow out win. Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 24 points. In Ray Allen's absence Avery Bradley stepped in nicely with 11 points...

Finley wants to come back to the NBA?

Does everyone know where former San Antonio Spurs guard Michael Finley finished out his NBA career? The answer is the Boston Celtics. If you didn’t know that, I don’t blame you. After Finley left the Spurs, he kind of faded into obscurity, trying to contribute what he could to a Celtics team that lost in the Finals to the L.A. Lakers. He never really was at 100% and didn’t...

From the GreenLab: The Backstabber

One of the staple offensive sets that the Celtics run is called "Floppy."  We covered it quite extensively last season, but essentially the main play is to set a back screen (or two, or ten) on the baseline for Ray to curl or "flop" around and get open for a jumper.  But it also has several options on it as well, including a new wrinkle this season that I'...

Taking Stock: C's-Wizards home-and-home

After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players... and maybe coach's... performance.  If we like what we see, we're buyin'.  If we don't, we're sellin'.  Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game Rajon Rondo: He's here so much I'm going to make him part of the template.  The triple-double in game 1 earns...

Saunders is conditioned to praise Garnett

There may be no one in the NBA more familiar or complimentary of Kevin Garnett than Wizards coach Flip Saunders, who coached Garnett in his first 10 seasons and watched him drop 24 points with nine rebounds Sunday night in Washington.

Cleveland Cavaliers to get first look at Minnesota's talented Ricky Rubio

Rubio is part point guard and part pop star to a fan base that has been eager for a reason to get excited since Kevin Garnett left town in 2007.

Celtics improve to .500, beat Wizards for the second straight night

(Editor's note: My apologies for the lack of updates or recaps on Sunday and Monday. It was a holiday weekend. You understand, don't you? Don't you?) I'm dying to give the Celtics all of the credit in the world. I really am. I just can't bring myself to do it. It has nothing to do with what the Celtics have or haven't done over the last two nights. There...
