Eye On Sports with Eric Williams:
Eye On Sports says Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers isn't doing a very good job this season.The aging Boston Celtics are on life support as they head into the annual all-star break with their collective heads spinning from a trio of emphatic losses to Detroit, Dallas and Oklahoma City – and now, they need a doctor in the worst way … as in Doc Rivers.Despite being regarded as one of the best head coaches in the game today, I think Rivers has actually done a poor job this season in failing to recognize – and adjust to a couple of very important facts this season.Celtics' second-year point guard Avery Bradley.First and foremost, Rivers should now clearly be able to see that the team’s aging core trio or Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are playing at a much slower pace now – and simply can’t keep up with their younger counterparts. Making matters even worse is the fact that the veterans are being pushed to their physical limits because of the truncated regular seaso...

IT'S AN HONOR
Many people felt Rajon Rondo was snubbed when he was left off the All-Star team, but rest assured, all is well in the world. He made it.
Earlier this season, it was reported that Rasheed Wallace was attempting to make a return to the NBA. Those talks seemed to quickly diminish despite Rasheed’s name being tossed around anytime a team had a need at the center position. Although the Boston Celtics had no interest in Rasheed, apparently their arch-rivals, the Los [...]

Happy26th Birthday to Celtics’ PG Rajon Rondo!!
Rondo will NOT play tonight versus his best friend Perkins and the OKC Thunder. He will instead be at home serving his second game of a two game suspension.
However, the NBA decided to reward Rondo by naming him Joe Johnson’s (knee) injury replacement to the NBA All-Star game this weekend in Orlando. Rondo will join teammate...

Through the first 32 games of this abridged campaign in the Association, the Boston Celtics could truly be nicknamed “Team Streak” after losing their fifth straight game Wednesday night to the Oklahoma City Thunder by a final margin of 119-104, giving them a disappointing record of 15-17 as they head into the All-Star weekend break. It is the second time this season that the...
Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.Garnett missed the team's last two games due to personal reasons.The forward is averaging 14.1 points and 7.8 rebounds in 28 games this season for a Celtics team that has lost four straight.
Last time Rasheed Wallace stepped foot on an NBA basketball court, the 15-year veteran was donning a Boston Celtics uniform in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Nearly two years later, Wallace is apparently returning to the hardwood for the very team that kept the Celtics from capturing their 18th NBA Championship that year, the Los Angeles Lakers. According to A. Sherrod Blakely of...
For about two hours yesterday, the Boston Celtics had us double-checking our calendars and second-guessing our travel plans, because they made it look like All-Star Weekend had started on a Wednesday. The C’s played like they were already on vacation in Oklahoma City (which should have been their first hint that it wasn’t a vacation), [...]
