Celtics Noodles and Notes; Back to the Crazy

Well, it didn't take long for the usual craziness of the Celtics Fandom to set in.  First there is the ongoing phenomenon of the near total lack of respect for number 18, the centerpiece of the seventies era in the Celtics dynasy - you know, the era that brought us two of our eighteen championships, which is one more than the Big Three era, and one less than the Bird era? -...

Celtics Noodles and Notes

We've seen ups and downs in Rondo's game this season.  He's gone through stretches where his shooting seemed vastly improved, his defensive play has seemed improved, his handling of pace seemed improved, and so on, and we've seen stretches where these improvements seem to have disappeared.  What's more important, though, is that - so far - Rondo has avoided...

Ray Allen Still Considers Boston Home, Honored By Place In Celtics Lore

BOSTON — Walking into TD Garden on Wednesday was an almost literal walk down memory lane for Ray Allen. Emblazoned on the walls of the hallway leading to the locker rooms are great moments from the Boston Celtics’ storied past, from Chuck Connors to Dave Cowens and beyond. Tom Heinsohn’s youthful face smiles out at visitors, beside Sam Jones preparing to release one of his...

Good Will Rondo’ing

“Ugh are you kidding me, what is this garbage all about?  Come on not again, not just after the annoying trade deadline just ended. ”  That was me, on Tuesday morning when I first read Steve Bulpett’s report that Rajon Rondo opted to skip his flight with the team to Sacramento to stay in LA and celebrate a birthday with family and friends.  I’m a huge Rondo fan, always...

Contemplating the Future

It's difficult to keep one's mind on the present with this Celtics team.  This season isn't over, but at this point, it would take a fairy tale finish to make the playoffs --  and of course, such a finish would infuriate tank enthusiasts as much as it would excite most fans.  Tank enthusiasts are a strange sort, though, if you ask me.  They seem to see themselves...

Amico on NBA: Bucks matter to league; let's hope they stay

Things are getting strange with Milwaukee basketball, and that's a little sad. I've always enjoyed the small-town feel the Bucks provide. In a league full of bright lights and big cities, Milwaukee is the one NBA place everyone seems to forget. Part of that is the Bucks haven't really been relevant in about a decade (or more). Part of it is there's simply nothing...

Comments from the Other Side - Timberwolves 10/21

Don't you love how they bash Tommy even when he's not calling the game? I guess it's out of habit. It seems like every fan base hates the new delay of game rule that ends up delaying the game even more. They call it even when the ball accidentally touches a player after it goes through the hoop, which is ridiculous. Interesting trade conspiracy proposal in here also...

Jo Jo White Gaining Strength Years After Brain Surgery, Former Celtic ‘Could Make Sick Cool’

The 1970s Celtics were defined by John Havlicek‘s relentless motor and Dave Cowens‘ tenacity, but Jo Jo White brought the cool. “He really is a cool dude and a great human being,” former Celtics coach Doc Rivers observed. The past few years were not so cool for the seven-time NBA All-Star and two-time champion. White, 66, has gone through the worst stages in his recovery...

An Interview with Former Celtic Skip Young

As training camp is upon Celtics' nation, we figured it'd be a great time to get in on the inside.  To know what the rigors of training camp consisted of.  What better than to ask a former Celtic who experienced training camp himself? Skip Young was picked in the 7th round by the Celtics in the 1971 NBA draft.  Yet he more than made heads turn at training camp that year...

We were all prepared for a much different Celtics team this season. The Celtics long time Captain is gone. KG is gone. There are many new faces on the team. The coaching staff is all new.

Report: Tom Heinsohn Will Work Only Celtics Home Games, Be Replaced By Team of Analysts on Road

Big changes to the Celtics’ broadcast coverage will not affect the place that matters most to fans — at least, not for home games. Tom Heinsohn and Mike Gorman will remain on the sideline calling Celtics games for the 33rd straight year, but Heinsohn will provide color commentary only for games at TD Garden, The Boston Globe reports.
