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 in. We have players we like in the D-League, and we have a little more than a week before the trade deadline. And we’ll explore all of that.
“Immediately we will probably bring someone in on a 10-day contract, and we’re going through all those names. There’s a lot of names actually, but it’s going to be very difficult to replace Leandro Barbosa.”
[...] “There are guys playing all around the world, and I need to figure out when they may become available with their contracts,” said Ainge. “So there’s a lot to go through here.”

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...
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...
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...
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...
I don’t know much about Gery Woelfel, except that he’s a columnist/report for the Journal Times in Racine, Wisconsin.
What does he mean by primary destination? That Smith wants to come to Boston?
I don’t see how the Celtics can make a deal for Josh Smith. Atlanta isn’t taking back Brandon Bass and Courtney Lee. Would they take a Jeff Green combo?
I just don’t see how it works.
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.
After the Celtics closed out the first half of the regular season with a victory over the Bulls, Garnett talked about the fatigue he felt after playing three games in four days and how the Celtics have managed to win eight of their...
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. Such an injury would end his season.
Kevin Garnett told reporters in the locker room after the game that the team was informed Barbosa would join Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger...
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...
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.
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...
The Boston Celtics continue to get bit by the injury bug as Leandro Barbosa tore his left ACL.
The Boston Celtics roster continues to be decimated by injuries. Leandro Barbosa injured his knee as he was attempting to drive to the basket on Charlotte Bobcats guard Ramon Sessions. The play occurred late in the third quarter of the Celtics’ 94-91 loss to the Bobcats on Monday night...
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...
I’ve had my issues with Glenn Ordway and his show over the years. It’s no secret. But there is another side, which needs to be told as well.
Warning: I’m about to go into “old bastard” mode and reference things that I remember that happened before some current members of the Boston sports media were even born.
I think I’ve also mentioned before that Ordway was the first...
