Bass back in the starting line-up, but don't worry, Collins will still get plenty of PT

Doc wants greater balance size wise, so the plan is to have KG and Bass start and then when KG goes to the bench, Collins will come in for him. To be quite honest, every minute that Jason Collins plays is a minute that the C's are doing the opposing team a solid. I do agree with Doc's decision to continue to keep KG's workload diminished in the regular season. Two things...

That’s Just Fab Being Fab: Ex-Orange Melo is the Butt of Jokes – Again

Nick Laham/Getty Images It took Fab Melo a grand total of six months on an NBA roster to be featured in a Deadspin article for his stupidity. And it’s probably surprising to many that it didn’t happen sooner. When the news first came out that Syracuse’s former brilliant Brazilian was called up from the Celtics’ D-League team, it sounded encouraging. But it turns out Melo...

Fab Melo Suffers Concussion From Bumping Head On Doorway

Celtics rookie Fab Melo suffered a concussion last weekend after bumping his head on the doorway in his Sioux Falls hotel room while the Maine Red Claws (Melo’s NBA Development League assignment) were in South Dakota for back-to-back games against the Skyforce. Melo was seen by the Red Claws medical staff and did not play in the team’s Monday afternoon game. On Wednesday, the...

The Celtics aren't just as terrible as they were last year, they're worse

Something Mark pointed to in this post right here is how similar the Celtics record was to last year's. Really, it is strange how similar the two teams are, yet also how alarmingly different. A lot of Celtics fans are kind of hanging their hat on the flip switching the Celtics did at the end of the season last year. It's not a bad argument. They've done it before, they...

Mike Petraglia offers to trade Kevin Garnett. Has it come to this?

When a team is struggling, it's only natural for its fans to demand trades. That I'm OK with. Now, since ESPN created Trade Machine, we've witnessed a myriad of stupid trades that would make sense for only one team that's involved, but you know what, that's OK too, because at least there was effort put in them to make the math work, because some people propose...

Boston Celtics Fab Melo gets a concussion running into a hotel door

For those of you waiver wire mavens out there, you might have seen that the Boston Celtics have recalled rookie Fab Melo from the NBDL's Maine Red Claws.The explanation was that Melo had suffered a concussion and needed to receive treatment for the injury.As you might have figured out from the title, Melo suffered the injury when he ran into a door according to the below tweet...

Gang Green 6.12… a.k.a. Welcome to communist Russia

The guys wore ties… Kurt compares the Celtics to communism… and Stats preaches patience in the latest episode of Gang Green TV.   There’s also the requisite trade speculation, Avery Bradley discussion, and even a Star Wars mention. Another great show from the guys…. and as an added bonus, here’s the show you didn’t see from before Christmas because… well… I’m the...

Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley Lead Rousing Win Over Pacers That Leaves Celtics Still Grasping for Consistency

BOSTON — The Celtics started Friday’s game like every other since their post-Christmas hangover began. They missed makeable shots, fired up 3-pointers early in the shot clock and looked all-around lost on offense. A funny thing happened when they looked up at the scoreboard at the end of the first quarter, though. Despite shooting 29 percent from the field and committing as many...

Fab Melo Suffers A Concussion, Doing What?!

Fab Melo is a huge prospect, with raw talent. Celtics had him doing development with the Red Claws. But earlier this week Melo suffered a concussion….walking into a doorway. Yup. Walked in a doorway in his hotel room down in South Dakota. *sigh* “I still have a little headache. Sometimes I can’t really focus on something for a long time, that’s it.” – Fab Melo

Avery Bradley is the Boston Celtics spark

Avery Bradley returns on Wednesday for the Celtics and could be the spark they need The Boston Celtics are struggling in 2012-2013. As the schedule turns from 2012 to 2013, the Boston Celtics are two games below .500 and their troubles are highlighted by a post-Christmas west-coast swing where they lost three games to the Warriors, the Clippers and the Kings by an average of 21 points...

Rondo: “Our Trust Isn’t There”

The change is not lost on seventh-year Celtic Rajon Rondo. “We’re not playing it (defense),” the point guard said following the Celtics loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. “I don’t know (why). We’ve just got to try to take it one step at a time. It starts with me so I’ve just got to hold myself more accountable.” “Just our trust, our trust isn’t there...

Celtics-Hawks Preview

The Boston Celtics have gained a reputation as a very good defensive team the last few years, but that wasn't the case at all during a recent four-game skid. While they returned to form for at least one night, they will need more consistency to get back on track after sliding below .500. Boston will also try to snap a three-game road losing streak when it faces the Atlanta...
