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. “We’ve got to do a better job at talking to each other,” the captain said. “Transition defense is No. 1, matching up with our guys. I think that’s where it starts. “Once we shoot the ball, whether we make or miss, we’ve got to make sure we get back and match up with our guy and talk to each other a lot better. You know, that’s something that we emphasized here this morning. We’ve got to have better communication.” Nodding out to the practice floor, where some teammates were working loudly, Pierce added, “You see everybody talking to each other right now? That’s how we’ve got to be out on the court.” Boston Herald: Celtics look to fix communication breakdown I’ve sat at the top of the rafters, and I’ve sat a couple of rows from the court, and there’s something great about both.  Up top, you can see plays d

A look back on Kevin Garnett metaphors

Last night after the loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Kevin Garnett gave a speech to his teammates that involved a "pack of hyenas" metaphor. Strange to say the least. But this isn't the first time Kevin has said some very strange metaphors. Lets look back on some of his best. 1.) The Green Squirrel "We had four assists at halftime, that’s not us. That’s like...

Doc Rivers Believes Celtics Need to Re-Establish Home Court Advantage in New Season (Video)

BOSTON -- The Celtics were extremely formidable at the TD Garden last season, when they won 24 of their 33 home games and enjoyed a bittersweet send-off from their fans toward the end of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Bucks did not much care about Boston's home record from last season, though, and Celtics coach Doc Rivers recognized that. Shortly...

Rajon Rondo takes picture with girl in ‘LeBron is a ******** shirt

Looks like that Boston Celtics-Miami Heat tense rivalry just got taken up a notch. Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo had an autograph signing in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, last week, and while he was there, he took a picture with a female fan who was wearing a “LeBron is a ******** T-shirt.

Your Morning Dump… Where Legler has no problem with Rondo’s hard foul on Wade

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. Much of the talk about Tuesday night centered on Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of the game. Legler did not have an issue with the play. Said Legler: “I look at it as a guy...

Swagger - The Good Old Days

All this talk about Dwyane Wade whining about Rondo's hard foul had me thinking about how basketball used to be played. You know by now that I read a lot of books on Celtics history. I love reading the story about how the Celtics didn't back down from anyone. Those Celtics teams in the old days had some swagger. I know that part of that swagger came from winning, but...

Rondo a punk? Doc Rivers points to Wade injuring Rondo's elbow in response

Doc on Wade's "punk play" comment: "Don't forget about Rondo's elbow injury (in 2011 playoffs)…that was created by Dwyane Wade."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 1, 2012 Yeah, cause Dwyane Wade has never done a punk move in his life. Seriously, I'm sick of Wade already. I never hated him before the Heat got LeBron and Bosh but since then...

Who's the Punk??

Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview, "I mean...

Playing small ball and the pick-n-roll in today's NBA

There is one thing we do know is that the NBA is a copycat league. When the Boston Celtics revived the 'Big Three' theory, Pat Riley decided that he wanted his own with a slight twist. As a result he got the 'super-brats' together in South Beach and won the 2011-12 NBA title. This year, for some reason, the NBA is not only obsessed with small-ball but the pick-n-roll...

Bucks Lead the Celtics 46-30 at the Half Behind Jennings’ 15 Points

The Celtics trail the Bucks 46-3 at the half as Brandon Jennings leads the way with 15 points and four assists. It’s been a game marred by a high turnover rate and mediocre shooting, with the majority of the quality offense coming on the break. The lone bright spot for the Celtics has been Jared [...]

Practice Report 11/1

As you might expect, a lot of the talk was about the Celtics lack of defense in their first game. Each player mentioned the need for better transition defense, which means that Doc had drilled that fact into their heads during the preceding practice. Along with transition defense, communication was a topic as well. It was also announced today that Rondo's Flagrant 1...
