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...

Your Morning Dump… A case for putting #5 in the rafters

  Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. In the 2012-13 NBA season alone, Garnett should surpass 6,000 points, leaving Ray Allen (5,987), Bailey Howell(5,812), Don Chaney (5,689), Dee Brown (5,512) and Larry Siegfried (5,420) in his wake....

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...

Fab Melo turned to basketball because he was awful at soccer

CSNNE’s Jess Camerato just published her Beyond the Arc interview with Fab Melo: JC: Who encouraged you to play basketball? FM: I was playing pick-ups and I was the last one picked, so I decided it wasn’t fun anymore and I started playing basketball. I know what it’s like to be the last one picked in a pick-up game.  I was awful at bocce. Fab talks about everything and anything...

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. Trading...

Doc Rivers working the Olympics coverage

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.

Jared Sullinger is Smokey the Swag Bear

CSNNE’s Jess Camerato went 1-on-1 with rookie forward Jared Sullinger for her “Beyond the Arc” feature.  And he talks about how rebounders will always get paid in the NBA, which is why he tries to hit the boards so hard.  It’s a good interview… but we bloggers being who we are, we’re of course latching on to this: [off the court] I’m laughing, I’m smiling. ...

Big 3 Era taxing for Celtics, but it could have been worse

The Celtics generate a lot of revenue.  As a big market team with a massive following, they make a bunch of money… and they will spend it on their roster if they have to. Mark Deeks at ShamSports.com put together a very comprehensive listing of every dollar every team paid in the luxury tax in the nine years it’s been in use.  Here are the relevant highlights: The Celtics...
