LATEST STORIES FROM RED'S ARMY

Words KG said: “Last train stops in Boston”

While we’re all waiting for what Kevin Garnett might do, Jay (MrTrpleDouble10) and his encyclopedic memory reminded me of this interview KG did back on media day in 2010.  It ends with this: Is this your last stop, the last place you want to be? Yup, this is it. Last train stops in Boston The facts are what they are:  Kevin Garnett is a free agent, thus he is free to speak...

Your Morning Dump… “Sources” are talking about Kevin Garnett

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. “First, he has a lot of respect for Doc (Rivers, the C’s coach),” the source said. “I’m not sure there is someone else he could play for at this point. He’s very loyal. But he’s also very proud. As...

Watch Gang Green at 9… because the NBA is dead to you now, anyway

I’ve heard rumors that there’s some basketball game on tonight… but honestly, I’m not sure what it is.  I assume it’s one of those crappy lockout exhibition things arranged by LeBron James and Kevin Durant because as far as I can remember, the NBA season ended Saturday. So instead of watching….. that….. watch the Gang in the latest episode of Gang Green. They go live...

Video: Celtics thank the fans

The Celtics tweeted out this video a little while ago.  It’s a nice thank you to the fans.  Not gonna lie… I’m a little upset that I’m posting this today and not in a couple of weeks with some clips of the parade.  I’m suddenly not as ok with things as I was earlier today.  I guess that’s what “denial” is all about.

Why Oklahoma City will win it all

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat might be the toughest NBA Finals to call in quite some time.  They are alternately very similar and quite different.  They each boast a 1-2 punch that can be both explosive and inconsistent.  But, as usual, this will be a series that comes down to match-ups, and I think the enough match-ups fall on OKC’s side of things. When Miami has...

To the team I never wanted to love, but did

I’ve tried to write this piece, probably, 20 times by now.  I don’t know how to start it.  I don’t know how to properly capture what this team is or was.  What I do know is… when it was over, I loved these guys.  And I never really intended to. Here’s the season in a nutshell: It was dead. Then it wasn’t. Jeff Green was fine.  Then he wasn’t. Kevin Garnett was...

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is “a players’ coach who will kick your ass.”

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 Atlanta series, when Bass failed to close out on a Josh Smith 3-pointer late in the third quarter, Rivers yanked him from the game. Bass thought he was done for the night, but two minutes later, Rivers...

Ray Allen set for surgery Wednesday

According to the Herald: Allen will have surgery to remove bone spurs from the ankle at 6 a.m. on Wednesday at New England Baptist Hospital, according to a source. The problem, which first surfaced during in Los Angeles during the C’s’ eight-game road trip in mid-March, eventually forced Allen to miss 15 regular-season games as well as the first two games of the Celtics’ first...

Celtics use the draft to plant seeds in future free agents’ heads

This is why the people who run basketball teams are infinitely smarter than idiot bloggers like me.  Because I would be going to to things like the NBA draft combine and focusing primarily on figuring out who the Celtics could draft at picks 21 and 22.  But the Celtics and the Spurs, two of the most well-run organizations in the sport, also see the long-term opportunities to plant...

Celtics targeting Spurs’ Green?

It’s that time of year, unfortunately… time to talk about potential free agent targets.  One of the nuggets in yesterday’s Globe had to do with one of those potential targets… Spurs swing man Danny Green. An emerging player on the Celtics’ radar could be San Antonio restricted free agent Danny Green, who had a solid playoff stretch with the Spurs and is one of the league’s...

Mannix: Rondo and Ray didn’t get along

During an appearance this morning on WEEI, Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix hinted at a riff between Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen: “There is going to be a ton of interest in Ray Allen in the offseason,” Mannix said. “He’s going to be able to pick and choose where he wants to play.” Allen conceivably could return to Boston, but Mannix said that decision might be affected...

Video: Rajon Rondo... defiant to the bitter end

  Some people might not like this, but I loved it.  After Doc Rivers had an emotional ending to his press conference, Rajon Rondo came in and was defiant and angry.  Make no mistake, he was just as emotional as Doc was, but it manifested itself in this icy death glare when he was asked if the Celtics over-achieved.  Rondo was PISSED that the Celtics lost...

Recap: Celtics get Bosh'd in Game 7

Props to Chris Bosh. It was the Boshtrich (19 points, 8-10 FG, 3-4 3 FG, 8 rebounds) who led the Heat to a 101-88 victory over the Celtics tonight. Not the punky Dwyane Wade who padded his stat sheet in the 4th quarter, or the phony LeBron James.   I have no desire to write a detailed recap of this game. The Celtics played valiantly for 24 minutes, but ran out of gas in the...

Dooling: 'Beat the Heat' shirts are extra motivation

Keyon Dooling says the Celtics are aware of the "Beat the Heat"t-shirts sold by the NBA.com store. Rest assured this information has been shared in the Celtics locker room, though Keyon Dooling chose to respond maturely this morning. “Oh yeah I saw it last night, (but) I think that’s a part of the game. I’m sure there were some Boston Celtics Eastern Conference...

Enemy Chatter: Wade kept Rondo away from the rim

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here's a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. "Certain shots hopefully I make that I missed. If not, I'll still make an impact on the game. I'm not a one-dimensional player." He proved that with his defense against Rondo, who closed with a playoff...

Celtics-Heat series gets Taiwanese animation treatment

The world famous "NMA", short for Next Media Animation, has given the Eastern Conference Finals their animated treatment. They call Boston "the Ben-Gay Celtics", show Paul Pierce with a walker and KG with a cane. They aren't much nicer to Miami, saying they'll need "all the fouling and flopping and help from officials it can get." Dwayne Wade...

Doc Rivers: Master motivator

Doc Rivers has this way of gauging the temperature of the room, and saying just the right thing to get people's attention.  Remember back in April when we all watched the Celtics lose to the Bulls by 7 and we chalked it up to just another "not enough in the tank" game?  Doc came out and TORCHED his team for their effort. That's what the team needed. They responded...

LeBron took the shots the Celtics wanted him to take, he just made all of them

LeBron James was out of this world good last night.  He hit every shot he took.  He was an unstoppable force.  But it's the TYPE of shots he hit that are leaving the Celtics a little more comfortable with his performance than one might think.  After the game, Doc said I wasn't really okay with those dunks at the basket and things like that.  Some of the turnaround...
