Paul Pierce: I’m bitter… but Ray Allen will always be a brother to me

On last year’s season and his knee injury: I was really excited with way we played in 2nd half… I really thought we had an opportunity to play for a championship, but injuries hurt us down the stretch. There was so much we had to overcome. Hopefully we can stay healthy. The knee is a lot better. It’s not completely healed about 90% now. It really hampered me the last 10-15...

Doc would coach Team USA only if Pop doesn’t

There’s been a little talk lately about Doc Rivers potentially coaching the 2016 Olympic team.  It seems like a good idea, and Doc is into it… but with one catch. Doc Rivers just said on NBC that “you’d have to say yes” to an offer to coach the Olympic team, but also endorsed Popovich. — John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann) August 2, 2012 Classy move by Doc, who has infinite...

Proud Papa Truth

Paul Pierce, his beautiful wife Julie, and his two adorable daughters were spotted in Calabasas, CA. last week.  Paul’s older daughter, Prianna, is holding his hand, as he carries his youngest, who is absolutely adorable. Have to love Truth’s “I’m That Dude” shirt. Of course as a sneakerhead I wanted to see what kicks he’s wearing, but alas they are not visible. Thanks...

5 years of KG moments

5 years ago this week, the Boston Celtics completed a trade that brought Kevin Maurice Garnett to Beantown. The franchise, this city and it’s fans have not been the same since. Many outside of Boston cannot stand KG and his “antics”.  I love them. His unbridled passion brings life to the TD Garden, and his dedication to the game he loves is unrivaled. When I am at a Celtics...

Doc takes the blame for Ray leaving

I get the feeling Adrian Wojnarowski sat down for one breakfast with Doc Rivers and got enough material to feed a week’s worth of columns. After a spectacular piece on Doc Rivers this morning, Woj checks in with another example of Doc at his best… as Doc takes most of the blame for Ray Allen’s departure. “People can use all the Rondo stuff – and it was there, no doubt about...

DJ Delz: “Imagine if Lebron James went to the Celtics”

When Ray Allen left Boston for the Miami Heat, my first thought was: “Damn we’re going to miss his clutch 3′s.”  My second thought was: “Damn I’m really going to miss his sweet J’s.”  No..not those J’s-his Jordans. During his time with the Celtics, Ray wore some sweet Air Jordan player exclusives. I doubt we will ever see a better selection of kicks than we did...

Danny Ainge did a lot, but did he do enough?

I’ve had some time to digest the Celtics offseason moves, and I like what the C’s have done to upgrade their roster. However, it’s not enough to beat the Miami Heat should the teams meet up in the Eastern Conference playoffs next season. Danny and Doc improved the club by resigning Brandon Bass, Jeff Green, and Chris Wilcox. Picking up Jason Terry was a solid acquisition....

I tuned in to watch Team USA play France this morning and was surprised to see Doc Rivers as NBC’s studio analyst for basketball. Doc’s great on TV – smart, candid analysis with a smooth delivery. Team USA pounded France, 98-71, behind Kevin Durant’s 22 points and 9 rebounds.
