Who is your all time Celtics starting 5?

Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo Sports' "Ball Don't Lie" blog posted his thoughts on the all time starting 5 for your Boston Celtics. No easy task for a team that has won 17 championships and has had a boatload of Basketball Hall of Famers suit up in green at some point.

Celtkicks: Anta releases more Celtics kicks as part of NBA deal

As part of Anta’s sponsorship deal with the NBA, the brand has released more models of their Boston Celtics themed sneakers. And I have to say, these are much better than the first few pairs they made to say the least. There’s the KG6, (more on those in a minute) a low trainer and another low built basically like an AF1. The one thing that I absolutely love about all of the...

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The retired numbers are a growing issue, although many new Celtics won’t admit that. Many of those considered to be prime numbers — 1, 2, 3, 10, 21, 22, 23, 32, 33 — are retired, leaving some of the Celtics...

I remember..

July 31st, 2007. I was at my apartment in East Boston when I heard the news. The Celtics had acquired Kevin Garnett in a blockbuster trade with the TWolves. What followed were 6 magical years of “Gino“, great pressers and most importantly, the resurgence of my beloved Celtics. I’ve said it many times before, but thanks for everything KG. We miss you.

Lakers' Tarik Black is shrinking in the eyes of the NBA -- literally

Height is a funny thing in the NBA. Some guys, such as Kevin Garnett, famously make themselves a little shorter to avoid the stereotypes that come with being a certain height. Others, such as Dwight Howard, are maybe stretching the truth with their official listed heights. Los Angeles Lakers forward Tarik Black was officially 6-foot-11 according to the NBA last season, but that won...

The Celtics All-“Number Still In Circulation” Team

Amir Johnson is one of Boston’s newest Celtics. As a new member of the team, he gets to pick a new number. But, his options were a bit limited because, as he said… Every number 1-34 is basically retired. My first initial number, I picked No. 5, but I know there was going to kind of be some controversy with that because Kevin Garnett won a championship. So I knew that was pretty...

The Celtics haven’t had the miracle offseason that many were hoping for that would catapult them into contention right away.
