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.
Meanwhile, the player who Barnes would essentially be replacing, Martin, remains unemployed despite his reputation as a tenacious defender and enforcer. He’s the sort of veteran that could come in handy for any contender, but here’s the crucial rub: It appears that most, if not all, of the interested teams want him to sign a veteran’s minimum deal.
The Lakers and Celtics have shown interest previously, but the question now is whether the 34-year-old Martin will hold out until midseason or perhaps even retire if he doesn’t get a deal and a situation to his liking. His leading competitor in this corner of the free-agent market is journeyman forward Louis Amundson, the 29-year-old who came off the bench for Indiana last season.
I’ve never been a fan of Kenyon Martin’s attitude or his lips neck tattoo, ...

It was so good to see some tweets on the Celtics today. The season is getting closer and it's exciting to see Celtics in town and reporters talking about it. First up was a picture of the parquet floor being shipped out to be refinished for the start of the season. Hopefully they get it back all shiny and new in time for the season.
And the morning started out with Dionte...
The Celtics have released a photo on instagram of the new plates that will go on the Celtics lockers this season. The season is getting closer and closer. I'm getting more and more excited for it to start. A neat feature of the locker plates is that they feature the names of all the Celtics that wore the numbers before. I love that they put the former players on the nameplates...

Fabricio Paulino de Melo, better known as Fab, was selected by the Celtics with the 22nd pick in the draft. His game is very raw and he is definitely going to be a project. He just started playing basketball 3 or 4 years ago, and spent just 2 years at Syracuse...
Rajon Rondo appeared on BET's 106 and Park tonight to talk about his career, the future, and interning for GQ during New York Fashion Week. Above is the video for the whole episode, so you have to skip to about 21 minutes into the video to get to Rondo's part.
Below is a 3 minute back-stage interview with Rondo:
You gotta watch this funny video summarizing Rajon Rondo’s internship at GQ headquarters in New York City.
I want to thank everyone at GQ, it’s been real, but I won’t be back next year.
I won’t forget what you guys did to me.
Don’t call or email.
I’ve included a couple of the better screenshots.
Jason Terry has settled into his new home and "The Jet" is ready for takeoff. Terry, who signed as a free agent with the Celtics this summer, provided fans with a video tour of his new place in Weston, Mass. In the video, produced by Reebok, Terry assigns a place for some artwork above his mantel and designates a spot for the all-important ping-pong table. He also sits...
Everyone, not just Celtics fans, have been concerned about Bill Russell since news of his heart procedure came out. Today, NBA.com posted an interview with the Celtics legend where he addresses the procedure and the state of his health, his Mentors' Golf Challenge, Team USA's performance in London, Ray Allen's departure, Jeremy Lin and much more.
I don't usually post a lot of videos, and now two in a row. But, a picture is worth a thousand words. So, here is Reebok's video catching up to Jason Terry as he lands in Boston with his family and shows us his new home. Every time I hear Jason talk, I get excited. He's so excited to be a Celtic and when he talks about his intensity for the game mixed with KG's...
The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their new basketball court this week and they're taking a page out of Boston's playbook with a herringbone pattern. Here's the Nets' CEO, Brett Yormark, on the court design:
"The vision all along was to have something that was truly identifiable and unique and when people turned on their TVs at home, know they were in Brooklyn,"...
The Los Angeles Clippers have signed veteran forward Matt Barnes.

Barnes begins his second stint with the Clippers after playing 38 games for the club during the 2003-04 season. The well-traveled UCLA product has played for eight...
Blake Griffin Creates HighlightsBlake Griffin and Kevin Love are two of the brightest young stars in the NBA. While they haven’t had the chance to get far in the playoffs, Kevin Love did win a gold medal at the Olympics this year (Blake should have). Let’s take a look at what makes these players so great.
Griffin enjoys making the flashy plays whenever possible. Even though...
