Found February 09, 2013 on Celtics Life:
If I were to tell you there was a former Celtic who while playing, one day aspired to raise hogs and chickens in his hometown of Montgomery, Alabama, you may think I was lying.  If I told you that said player was on the injured list at one point while on the Celtics with a broken thumb that came as a result of cracking his knuckles, you would probably also think I was lying (or that I was referring to Pervis Ellison or Fab Melo).  But if that were the case you wouldn't remember Marcus Webb, who we remember in What the Hell Happened To. From an awesome article back in the day: Marcus Webb doesn't mean to brag, but he knows he played ball better than anyone back home. He dressed better, too. And he's sure he can outcook the Boston chef who's just sent over some smothered cabbage and sweet potatoes. "My self-esteem is high about everything.  I know I'm a beautiful individual. Without anyone telling me, I know that. I have confidence.  I'm one indep...

Pierce says he wants a chance to get another ring, whether in Boston or elsewhere

Paul Pierce wants no part of being part of another rebuilding team. Ideally he'd like to get a 2nd championship in Boston, but if that doesn't look likely, he's more than willing to compete for his 2nd title elsewhere. In a very open and revealing interview with the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett, Pierce let his feelings be known. “I want an opportunity to at least...

Celtics looking to add a big man, 'owe it' to KG and Pierce to make a run

Six straight wins have lifted the Celtics three games over .500, and into 7th place in the Eastern Conference. Not ideal playoff position by many stretch, but the team has flourished since losing Rajon Rondo for the season, and it seems they've done enough to impress team President Danny Ainge. According to Ric Bucher, Ainge has taken note of the recent stretch, propelled by...

What awaits Rondo when he recovers from surgery depends on these 3 things

BOS G Rajon Rondo’s surgery is expected to be on Feb 12 or 13 and will be a procedure using either his ligaments or a cadaver,source told Y! — Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) February 8, 2013 After a brief burst of “maybe Rondo will return quicker than we think” stuff last night, it’s now obvious his season is over. Spears added that Rondo has “spoken to three doctors...

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny Ainge explains the difference w/o Rondo

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We are different without him,” Ainge explained. “We’re running better now because five guys are running. Honestly, I think we rely on Rondo too much. “For example: With Rondo out, you see Jeff Green grab...

Celtics rumors: Boston unlikely to trade Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

Boston Celtic veterans Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce have had their names come up in trade rumors throughout the season. However, general manager Danny Ainge doesn’t expect either player to be traded, reports Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston."Yeah, I think that's by far the most likely thing. Sure," he said when asked whether he was comfortable saying the two stars...

Kevin Garnett Scores 25,000th Point Of His Career

Kevin Garnett became only the 16th man in NBA history to have scored 25,000 points in his NBA career during the Celtics’ romp over the Lakers on Thursday night. Garnett reached the milestone with a classic KG fadeaway with 8:08 to play in the 2nd quarter.

The House that Truth Built

In his 14 years in the league, Paul Pierce has seen it all - the ups and downs, the losing and the winning, the rise and fall.  It just wouldn't be right to see the Truth and all that he's worked hard for winding down on either a rebuilding Celtics team or a contending opposing one.  It just ain't right.  Truth belongs to a fighting, competing ballclub right here in...

Kevin Garnett Says He Wants to Retire as a Celtic, While Bashing the Media

I find it ironic that KG says if it is up to him he would retire a Celtics, when it is up to him. He has a no trade clause so if he wants to stay a Celtic forever that is his choice. KG himself spoke on how it is a business and he understands the possibility of being traded, so his comments that it is all the media fault for the rumors sounds silly. “On a last note, I just want...

Celtics Blow Lakers Away In The Third, Cruise To Sixth Straight Win

Sure, they led by approximately ten points for most of the game, but in the final minutes of the third quarter Boston put the game out of reach with a 14-3 run. Jason Terry started the spurt with a triple, Jeff Green provided a thunderous dunk before sprinting...

Live Game Updates - Lakers @ Celtics

7:25: The Celtics, after their well-earned win in Toronto, will host the arch-rival Lakers tonight at the Garden. The Lakers and Celtics are both starting to heat up as LA is on a three-game win streak and Boston is on a five-game win streak. The Celtics are now an overall 25-23 while the Fakers are 23-26. I expect Celtics to win tonight, but I won't guarantee it. We'll just...
