Found August 03, 2013 on Celtics Life:
Can you hear the dust balls rolling? Not here at CelticsLife! Not when there's plenty of time to talk about the issues we all want to really address. Like, why was Bonzi Wells at the son of Bill Dinwiddie's (I mean Rashid Shabazz!) house trying to kill him? Or was he even there? Will the Celtics bring back Shavlik Randolph? Should they? Also, what's your favorite Game 4 of all time? Have you ever eaten at Rashid's Fish n' Chips? All those burning issues and more were covered this week. Your recommended features...

Shavlik Randolph thanks Celtics fans, open to a return; Knicks may be interested in his services

Randolph's play in Boston should keep him in the NBA CSNNE's Jessica Camerato spoke with Shavlik Randolph yesterday evening, and here's what he had to say about his future and time with Boston: "I don't know if there's enough room on the paper for what to say to the fans. I'm just extremely, to the highest level, thankful for their support. I don'...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics envision a key role for Kris Humphries

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. For the record, was told on Draft Day that Boston liked Humphries more than just as an expiring contract. Ainge a fan. — NetsDaily.com (@NetsDaily) August 1, 2013 Source: #Knicks had interest in Kris Humphries...

Jordan Crawford Playing in the Drew League

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest Jordan Crawford fan. I think he's too much ego and not enough team and he didn't do anything to change my mind last season on the Celtics. I wasn't impressed by his socks with pot leaves on them and I wasn't impressed when he tried to start something with Carmelo Anthony in the playoffs. KG has earned the right to trash...

Celtkicks: Rajon Rondo Nike Hyperposite p.e.

An absolutely sick pair of Rajon Rondo Nike Hyperposites recently surfaced on EBay. These Nike basketball shoes, which blend a sleek hoops shoe with a high-tech foamposite, were made specially for #9. Unfortunately, due to last year’s injury, he never got to rock them. They sold on EBay for just under $1000. Rondo wore the Hyperposites last year, most notably a sweet mint green...

The Four Best Moves of the Celtics' Offseason

Whether you wanted to admit it or not, the summer of 2013 was almost guaranteed to be a busy one for the Boston Celtics. The team was coming off of a first round playoff exit they suffered at the hands of the New York Knicks and, judging by the emotional exchange that took place between Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett as the final minute or two of Game 6 ticked off the clock, it was...

Celtics cut ties with Shav Randolph

The Boston Celtics have released Shavlik Randolph before his contract was set to become guaranteed the power forward told ESPN's Jeff Goodman. Randolph's $1.1 million salary would have been guaranteed if the Celtics did not waive him by the end of the day Thursday. The Celtics' roster now stands at the regular-season limit of 15 players all of whom have guaranteed...

Report: Pistons could eventually try to use Brandon Jennings to acquire Rajon Rondo

It's the middle of summer, and to be honest..the Celtics hot stove has cooled quite a bit. Pierce, KG and Doc are long gone, the draft seems like ages ago, and the Celtics had their quietest free agency period in years. It has basically become a waiting game. Waiting to see if the team makes a salary cap cutting deal prior to training camp. Waiting to see if Rajon Rondo is healthy...

Opinion: Bandwagon Boston Celtics fans should be shown the door

Photo courtesy of Dime Magazine BOSTON--  This particular thing has been on my mind lately, so here goes nothing. The Boston Celtics have undergone huge changes this offseason from losing their captain and a “Big Ticket via trade to hiring a new coach that made his mark in the game as one of the brightest young minds in college basketball. When you take two perennial All-Stars...

SQ#58—Why No OTA’s for NBA

As I contemplate the Green silence (and if you think the Celtics’ traffic drops off, the rest of the league is a wasteland), it occurs to me that the NFL fans are digesting reports of OTA’s (offseason team activities I believe) in the months leading up to their training camps.  Which beggars the question, why no OTA’s for NBA teams?  Well for one thing, I think they are...

Your Morning Dump… Where history is not on the side of Brad Stevens

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 all know the primary issue: Can a college coach jump into the 2013 NBA without any kind of NBA experience? Brad Stevens has none whatsoever. He did not play in the league. He has not been an assistant coach...

Is it really fair to say Red Auerbach held onto his Big Three too long?

Now that the dust has settled on the remembrance of the late, great Reggie Lewis, one question still remains: did Red Auerbach really hold onto his Big Three too long? It's been a long held belief that Red should have traded Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish while they still had some value to help the Celtics rebuild for their next championship run. The logic seems...

Report: Celtics Inform Randolph They Won't Pick Up Option

The deed is done.  According to ESPN Insider, Jeff Goodman, the Celtics have informed Shavlik Randolph that they will not be picking up his team option for the 2013-14 season.  Although I'm surprised it took until nearly 6:00 this evening, Boston's waiving of Randolph shouldn't come as a shock. Had the Celtics picked up the big man's $1.1 million option they would...

It's August 1st, do you know where your Shavlik is?

Boston must decide today whether or not to cut Shavlik Randolph, or his $1.1 million contract becomes fully guaranteed for next season.  No word yet on any decision from the C's.  Keeping Randoplh would give the Celtics 16 players, 4 power forwards, and a payroll that continues to rise above the salary cap and luxury tax threshold.  I want him anyway, they can figure out that...
