The Season (And More Importantly, Guess The Kobe Stat Line) Is Here Baby!

It's finally here!  "The lockout is over!"  You're like, "wtf, a lockout?!"  I'm quoting a Dave Cowens commercial!  And after the 98-99 Lockout at that!  Anything vintage Hornets is nostalgic gold right now.  Ridiculous amounts of bonus points to readers who are Hornets fans and remember that commercial and/or can find the video.  Because I couldn't! The return of the Hornets...

What the Hell Happened to...Tom Barker?

“I like him. For a guy who hasn’t even had the time to learn the plays, he’s done all right. He can shoot a little and rebound and moves well.  He’s not afraid to shoot and he has better hands and is smarter than Earl Williams.  In the last few games he’s contributed quite a bit.”   - Dave Cowens on Tom BarkerBack during the late 70s the Celtics were a team in transition...

The 1970's Celtics: Overlooked Champions

By Cort ReynoldsIn the fabled history of the Boston Celtics, buried between the long-term dominance of the Russell/Cousy/Jones 11-title era from 1957-69, and the opulent Bird/McHale/Parish epoch of the 1980's lie the frequently forgotten great Celtic teams of 1971-76.  Partly because those Boston squads won "only" two league crowns, they have been banished to the back pages of the...

Bavetta looks back on a lifetime in basketball

Dick Bavetta never missed a game. Fortunately for him, not everyone has that same sense of devotion. The year was 1966, and Bavetta was in a stockbroker-league basketball game at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York. His team played in the first game on the schedule that night. The game ended, Bavetta grabbed a quick shower and returned to the court because his brother - a police...

Time Out For Trivia

All of the Celtics players below except one were drafted in the first round of the NBA draft.  Can you put them in the correct order of their selection, from the number one selection down?  Before you begin, can you name the one No.1 pick overall and the only second rounder?  Good luck!1.

Boston Celtics All-Decade Teams: The 1970s

Guest post by The Sports Hayes  The 1970's The 70's began and ended in misery with championships in between. One of the weirdest decades in franchise history, that's for sure. Still, they won 2 championships and should have won 4 if it wasn't for injuries and front office buffoonery. Coach - Tom Heinsohn Its either him, Satch Sanders or player/coach Dave Cowens. I...

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

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...

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 flashy about the...

What the Hell Happened to...Bobby Wilson?

WTHHT is all about perseverance. We've seen it so many times before.  Guys come out of nowhere, against all odds, and wind up playing for the Boston Celtics.  Brett Szabo and Ronnie Grandison did it.  Hambone Williams, Bill Dinwiddie and Conner Henry did it too.But sometimes the stories are so incredulous you can't even believe it unless you heard it from the person himself. ...
