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.
That might have been my fault. When we were in training camp, I heard Danny talking to Nate and Glen Davis about tweeting. He was trying to tell them to be careful and to remember they were representing the Celtics and the team had certain guidelines they were going to expect them to follow. I’m listening to all this and I go up to Danny and say, “You know, everything you said is right, but you’re not speaking their language.” Danny is looking at me kind of funny and I said, “If you really want them to get the message you say this: ‘If you are irresponsible tweeting, I’m going to fine you twenty thousand dollars.’ They’ll understand that. The next day we have a “social media” session where this expert comes in and talks to us about tweeting and YouTube and all that stuff ... You can tell...

Glen Davis wants to get back to basketball, and he has a suggestion to end the lockout. He says the players and owners should agree on a 51-49 split on income.
Shaquille O'Neal's new book, "Shaq Uncut," co-written with Jackie MacMullan, hasn't even been released yet, but some juicy tidbits have. Shaq has re-ignited the Kobe feud and spilled some critical beans on the relationship between LeBron James and his former Cleveland Cavalier coach Mike Brown. And even though his time here in Boston was almost as quick...

I'm not 100% sure if this is a good thing or not, but hopefully the threat of decertification will lead to the owners upping their offer tomorrow. From what I've been led to believe if the players decertify from the union, things then get messy and there won't be any quick resolution (thus no basketball any time soon). Again hopefully simply the...
It’s November, the month the NBA season normally begins, so it’s naturally time for Paul Pierce and Derek Fisher compete. Normally, Pierce would be scoring buckets and Fisher would be annoyingly chasing Ray Allen around screens. But this is the NBA lockout, so Fisher is attempting to lead the players association in negotiations with the owners while Pierce, unhappy with the...
YEP, THE LOCKOUT IS STILL ON
With NBA lockout talks getting more and more frustrating by the day, Paul Pierce prefers to take some time to relax and work on his bowling technique from the comfort of his own home. Check out the video below to see if Pierce can bowl a strike with just one roll.
When Magic Johnson had a roast session at the expense of “King James” he sort of laughed it off. However, upon learning that Shaq was critical of him in his new book he was shocked.
After all the last real communication that the two really had was LeBron James congratulating him on the success of his career and hopefully a prosperous retirement. It is clear that after a hefty...

Well here it is everybody, the home opener. After last season's heart wrenching defeat to The Heat it's was exciting to get out to Boston and see the squad go at it again. As much as I wanted him gone, It was wierd not...
Tonight should have been the first game of the season for the Celtics. The game would have ended right about now. In fact, I'd probably be listening to Doc's post-game comments as either I or Chuck put together a recap.
Buuuuut... Since there was no actual basketball, I popped it on TBS and caught 2 hours of Family Guy (preceded by...
Paul Pierce was reportedly the most vocal 'star' player on the call.
If the excerpts of "Shaq Uncut: My Story" are the juicy parts, we won't learn much new about Shaquille O'Neal's time with LeBron James and the Cavaliers, Bud Shaw writes in his Spin column.
Decertification of the union has been something some agents have pushed for from the start, and it appears that those same agents had a heavy hand in this week’s players decertification talks behind the players’ backs. Names have started to leak out of who was on the call from several sources. Paul Pierce and Dwyane…
