Kobe Bryant motivated himself by listening to celebratory Celtics music after 2008

Another example of Kobe Bryant’s legendary motivation: after losing to Boston in the 2008 NBA Finals, Bryant reminded himself of the pain by forcing himself to listen to the celebratory songs that were played as the Celtics won the title. Bryant listened to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” right up until the Lakers got their revenge in 2010. Celtics fans had sung the tune...

Danny Ainge hints Celtics may not want DeMarcus Cousins

Despite the lack of a primary scorer/alpha dog on their team, the Boston Celtics are slowly creeping back into relevancy in the Eastern Conference. They have opened up the 2015-16 NBA season with a 16-13 record, thanks in large part to a surplus of depth and blue-collar talent on a roster where no player is averaging more than 21 points per game. That anyone is capable of stepping...
