TMZ video of KG and Melo barking outside Celtics bus

Here’s (alleged) proof of the Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett encounter Monday night near the Celtics bus at Madison Square Garden. While it’s nothing more than a lot of barking and jostling, it’s more evidence that Anthony perpetuated the on-court incident. I don’t see any way Melo avoids a suspension for this behavior. Let’s recap: KG said something very nasty to Carmelo...

Your Morning Dump…where Rondo is proof that Cousins may not work here

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. Changing people is not easy, though. Perhaps the Celtics would be able to “figure out” Cousins and help him tap his vast potential. That does not mean Rondo is a puzzle they have solved. The Celtics have done...

Rondo: I was joking around with the ref

Rajon Rondo served a one-game suspension last night for inappropriate contact with a referee.  At the time, Rodney Mott didn’t think enough of the contact to throw a tech at Rondo, clearly thinking it wasn’t a big deal.  Rondo today, addressed it before practice.    The league thought it was a big deal. I don’t feel there was a need to have an investigation. I know Rodney...

Enemy Chatter: Paul Pierce is this generations Reggie Miller for Knicks fans

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 New York. Paul Pierce is this generations Reggie Miller for us Knicks fans. Tonight, watching this game, I thought the intensity was great. The fight and passion was fun to see and both teams wanted this game badly. It is so difficult to...

Carmelo Anthony shows the one thing keeping the Knicks from being taken seriously

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. My apologies for taking a quote from the civil rights movement and using it to speak about basketball,  but the brilliance of that quote is how it stands the test of time, and situations.

Your Morning Dump..where Paul Pierce enjoys the big stage

We’ve seen it countless times. Paul Pierce buries a big shot in crunch time at Madison Square Garden and takes a bow. Or Tebows. Or knocks Nate Robinson off his back. Well, last night was more of the same, as Pierce’s clutch step-back jumper sealed a win in the closing seconds over the Knicks. Chris Forsberg-Paul Pierce enjoys big stage: When his step-back jumper over Tyson...

Recap: The Truth reminds the Knicks that he owns their ass

Some things never change. The sun rises in the East, I get the pretty girl, and Paul Pierce owns the Knicks. In a game with playoff level intensity, the Celtics beat New York, 102-96. Paul Pierce (23 points, 6 rebounds) played the villain yet again, nailing the game-sealing dagger in Spike Lee’s grill with 45 seconds to go. By my unofficial count, Carmelo Anthony committed 9 personal...

Rondo suspended for contact with referee

Rajon Rondo made contact with an official after being whistled for an offensive foul.  The official at the time did not whistle Rondo for a technical foul, but the league decided it was enough of a bump to warrant another suspension for Rondo. They said Boston’s Rondo suspended 1 game for making contact with an official & failure to cooperate with a league investigation You...

Report: C’s may be positioning themselves for a blockbuster trade

If the Celtics had just waived Jarvis Varnado, no one would have batted an eye.  The fact that they waived Kris Joseph, a kid they were pretty high on over the summer… well… we’re batting eyes all over the joint. Suddenly, the Celtics have gone from “we don’t want to pay guys guaranteed money to do nothing” to “…….. what the F are these guys up to?”….. and...

Recap: Truth and Mr.Triple Double lead furious comeback

Behind Paul Pierce’s 17 points in the 3rd quarter, the Celtics prove that Celtic Pride is still alive, as they beat the Hawks 89-81 tonight in Atlanta. Celtics looked absolutely flat in the 1st & 2nd and trailed by 19 at one point, and 15 at the half. They were firing-up jumpers, playing awful defense and looked like they were going to be blown-out. But then came the 3rd quarter...
