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.
Boston coach Doc Rivers admitted Monday that the team gave heavy thought to adding Martin, but never pulled the trigger. Instead, the Knicks signed him to two 10-day contracts beginning in late February and have since added him for the remainder of the season.
Martin is averaging 8.6 points and 5.3 rebounds over 23.1 minutes per game for New York, starting six of the 11 games he’s played for them. The Celtics host the Knicks in the first of two games in a six-day span on Tuesday night at TD Garden.
“I think Kenyon’s been great,” admitted Rivers. “He’s been absolutely fantastic. I’m happy for Kenyon. I’m not happy that he went to the Knicks, but I am happy for him. Because he was out there and we looked at him — a lot of [teams] looked at him — and, in the end, I didn’t care where he ended up, I just wanted him to do wel

According to a tweet from Ian Begley of ESPN New York, new Knick Kenyon Martin desires to continue his career beyond this season and “would love” to re-sign with the Knicks this offseason. This comes as great news to the Knicks who had worked so hard to sign Martin since the summer of 2012 where they attempted to acquire him in a 3...
Kenyon Martin may of had to wait longer than he wanted to sign with an NBA team this season, but the 12-year-veteran is proving he can still make an impact. In six games without Tyson Chandler (neck injury), Martin has averaged 12 points and 7 rebounds as a starter. And while he’s “focused on the present”, the former No. 1 pick says he would love to return with the Knicks next...
Kenyon Martin has proved to be a valuable pickup for the Knicks, averaging 11.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in seven games as a starter since Tyson Chandler went down with a neck injury, so how does he feel about the Celtics passing on him earlier this season? “It’s their fault.”

The New York Knicks are currently riding a five-game winning streak, revamping confidence in the team once again this season. It’s been an up and down roller-coaster for these Knicks, and just over a week ago they seemed to be hitting rock bottom with a four-game losing streak. Questions of how Carmelo Anthony would perform after getting his knee drained mixed with the fact Tyson...
One game after posting 19 points and 11 rebounds, Kenyon Martin dropped 18 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in Saturday's blowout win.
Kenyon Martin has been a key addition to the Knicks roster.
The Boston Celtics could use another big body right about now. Kevin Garnett is expected to miss as much as another two weeks with an ankle injury. KG has missed four of the past six games for the Celtics, and the team is currently in the middle of a five-game losing streak. Coincidence? I think not.
Boston could have signed Kenyon Martin to bolster their front court earlier this...
Doc Rivers no longer has a horse in the race, now that his son Austin Rivers is plying his trade in the NBA. The Celtics coach and college basketball fan does have a rooting interest in the NCAA Tournament, though.
Rivers admitted that he is enjoying Florida Gulf Coast’s run to the Sweet 16, and that he has a personal connection with the Eagles. FGCU’s primary alley-oop thrower...
The Celtics are banged up. If Kevin Garnett's foot injury ends up lingering for any extended period of time, an already thin front line becomes non-existant. The C's have no depth at either the 4 or 5 spot - and it's showing. D.J. White and Shavlik Randolph are not NBA caliber players, at least not rotation quality, and trying to plug them into the line-up during the...

BOSTON — In Doc Rivers‘ mind, there is something worse than Jordan Crawford taking one of his patented off-balance, contested 3-point shots with plenty of time left on the shot clock. And that is planting a seed of doubt in the fearless shooter’s mind that, maybe, he is being too carefree for his own good.
Crawford has long been criticized for his questionable shot selection...
