Found February 13, 2013 on Red's Army:
Every time a roster spot opens up on the Celtics, we get tweets and emails calling for the team to sign Keynon Martin, Allen Iverson and Delonte West. While Delonte isn’t physically washed up like AI and K-Mart (accept it people – there’s a reason they’re not in the league), he remains a troubled soul. Case in point; he has yet to report to the D-League team that acquired his rights two weeks ago. His time in Dallas last season didn’t end smoothly: West was waived after two suspensions for conduct detrimental to the team. He was involved in a pair of locker room incidents during the preseason, and was on his second straight one-year contract for the veteran minimum, which was $1.2 million this season. The first suspension of West was lifted after just a day after a meeting with Nelson and Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. A week later, though, West said he received a text telling him not to come to practice a week before the start of the regular season and was waived a few days later. ...

Winning with 8 guys: replace Leandro Barbosa with Jeff Green

Jeff Green is picking the right time to flourish. The Celtics roster now consists of 10 healthy bodies.  Shockingly they have the most depth at center (4 of the 10); however one of them (Fab Melo) has no business being out of the D-League, and another (Jason Collins) should only be used in case of emergencies.  Regardless, Melo and Collins are both big awkward players that offer...

Kevin Garnett plays point guard?

Who knew KG still (or ever) had this kind of handle? As the Celtics were starting their dramatic 4th quarter rally against the Bulls last night, Kevin Garnett delivered what for me was his most entertaining and impressive highlight of the season.  Garnett decided he was going to be the point guard. He held the ball near half court, directed traffic, and called out a play; just...

Your Morning Dump… Where borders will not restrain Danny Ainge’s PG search

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. “All three of them are real blows to us,” said Ainge. “First of all, we lose our star player and then Jared and then Barbosa. That’s devastating. We’re short on guards now, and we have to bring someone...

Paul Pierce offers to call your Valentine

Paul Pierce is just awesome at life. Not only is the guy one of the greatest Celtics of all time, but now he is also helping out his fellow Celtic fans in the love department. "Pierce tweeted his gift suggestion, a “Celeb Call” from none other than himself." Valentines Day is an awkward holiday. Guys feel a lot of pressure to go all out because those are the expectations...

Jared Sullinger Limited to Sitting in Recliner, Playing Video Games As He Recovers From Back Surgery

BOSTON — Jared Sullinger is spending his days lounging around, and it is terrible. The rookie forward made an appearance at TD Garden on Wednesday and expounded on his recovery from back surgery, which he underwent two weeks ago. Upbeat but clearly itching to play, Sullinger described a recovery that, so far, seems pretty boring. Sullinger cannot work out or engage in any physical...

Kevin Garnett Says This is ‘Definitely’ His Last All-Star Game, But Meaning is Vague

BOSTON — Maybe it was a slip of the tongue or a subtly placed hint, but Kevin Garnett left quite a few reporters scratching their heads on Wednesday.

The worst-case scenario for Leandro Barbosa‘s knee appears to have been confirmed. The Celtics guard, who came up lame during Monday’s loss in Charlotte, reportedly has torn the ACL in his left knee.

Boston Celtics: They Must Trade For A Point Guard Now.

With Leandro Barbosa joining Rajon Rondo out of the lineup with a torn ACL, the Boston Celtics need to trade for a point guard, if they want to have any chance of making any noise this season. They now do not have a single point guard on the roster and must fix this immediately. However, they do not have much to offer besides future first and second round picks and 2012 first round...

The Boston Celtics can't catch a break.  They lost their star point guard, Rajon Rondo, to a torn ACL.  Now, as the team has found a way to continue winning, they have lost another guard to a knee injury.  Leandro Barbosa went down after driving to the basket and making a pivot move. According to A. Sherrod Blakey of CSN Boston, the injury is likely season-ending.  Barbosa...

Will Houston really be Kevin Garnett's final All-Star Game?

Kevin Garnett has always been one to talk a lot of junk on the floor over the course of his 18-year career between Minnesota and Boston. But off of the court it is a different story.  Except this time around, the story surrounding Garnett has everyone in Boston mystified if the “Big Ticket” really is set to play his last All-Star Game on Sunday in Houston. This will...

He’ll Be Back? Celitcs Are In Fact Considering Signing Delonte West

After winning eight of their last nine games before the All-Star break, the Celtics seemed to be primed for a playoff run. Despite losing Rajon Rondo, Leandro Barbosa, and Jared Sullinger for the rest of the season, the remaining players on the C’s roster are playing at a high level and look determined to stay the course without these key pieces. However with only 10 players left...

Comments from the Other Side - Bobcats 2/11

Bobcats fans seem like a decent bunch.  They are sticking with their team through all the lean years, which says a lot.   They also felt bad when Barbosa went down unlike several other teams whose fans would be cheering (or wishing for) an injury on the Celtics.   While I hate to lose any game, this one wasn't too bad.  They were competitive right to the end in spite of...
