Found June 15, 2012 on Red's Army:
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. So while Roy Hibbert is technically available, and it sure would be nice for the Celts to acquire a young big man who can defend the paint and is improving steadily with his offense, the chances of the Pacers parting with such an asset are nil. The Hornets might be more willing to listen to offers for restricted free agent Eric Gordon, but the shooting guard probably showed enough after his return from knee surgery to make his asking price high. There are others in the restricted category who could be of interest to the Celtics, people like Portland’s Nicolas Batum and Chicago’s Omer Asik, but it’s important to remember the locals must still deal with their own crew of free agents. It is highly unlikely the Celtics [team stats] will be able to find any free agent elixirs this summer. That leaves their immediate fate t...

Perkins joins the growing chorus: Garnett considering retirement, won’t play for anyone but Doc Rivers

If you didn’t trust Sam Cassell, who shared the exact same news earlier this week, maybe you can believe Kendrick Perkins: Kevin Garnett is conflicted about retirement, but won’t play for anyone except Doc Rivers if he returns for an 18th NBA season.

Vote: Which Celtics Free Agent Is Most Important for C's to Re-Sign?

The Big Three's window in Boston may finally be closing. It's safe to say that the Celtics got much more than they bargained for out of the combination of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett, what with the C's taking the Heat to Game 7 in the Eastern Conference Finals. What was expected to be a three-year run at the title has turned into a five-year era in the storied...

How old man Kevin Garnett taught me a little lesson

It’s been over a week since I came to the conclusion that Kevin Garnett would retire after this season. I was convinced of it immediately after watching KG answer a question from ESPN’s Doris Burke after the Celtics beat the Miami Heat in game 5 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. Burke asked KG what fuels him after 17 years in the league. KG said “competition”, then...

Brandon Bass opts out

Although he previously stated that he wanted to be a Celtic for life, Brandon Bass has opted out of his contract and will enter free agency this offseason. His option was worth $4.25 million, which he showed during the playoffs is a little low for his production. The Celtics will probably resign him, and one [...]

Examining the Celtics draft

Is Moe Harkless in the Celtics future? The crazy part about the end of the NBA season is how fast the off-season comes. This year, due to the shorter regular season and later start to the play-offs, those dates come even faster. Believe it or not, the NBA draft is only two weeks away. It’s all so weird considering that the Celtics season only ended last weekend and the dominating...

Who is a better point guard in the NBA: Rajon Rondo or Chris Paul?

The question of who is a better NBA point guard out of Rajon Rondo or Chris Paul is a tricky one because their styles of play are not exactly the same.  The biggest difference people say between them is Paul can create his own shot at any point of a game where they might not have as much confidence in Rondo in an isolation situation.  Are these notions fact or fiction?  This article...

Stiemsma on future: "Boston is definitely my No. 1 choice"

Boston Herald“Obviously, I have to do what’s best financially for me and my family. But at the same time, to come back to this system where I think I fit in pretty well, that will play a factor, too,” Stiemsma said. “The fans in Boston have been unbelievable. To come back to play for Doc (Rivers), hopefully we can make that work out. Boston is definitely my No. 1 choice.”...
