Celtkicks: Inside Sneaker Con New York

I love sneakers, and I’ve been called a sneaker-head, but I learned this past weekend that I’m nowhere near the sneaker-head that has come to define the recent explosion in sneaker collecting. I am to true sneaker-heads what the occasional pot smoker is to Charlie Sheen.  I love my kicks, and I can’t resist impulse purchases when I see something I like.  But I wear my sneakers...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Pistons

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.

Recap: Celtics embarrassed in worst performance of the season

The Celtics took a long, hot piss on my preview optimism tonight.  They had an early 6 point lead, but they relaxed late in the quarter to let Detroit cut the lead to 2, and then they took the rest of the night off.  C’s fall to Detroit… DETROIT!!!!…. 103-83 The Green:  Rondo got his 10th assists with less than a minute to go in the game.  If there was any question as...

Enemy Chatter: Avery Johnson was afraid of another Paul Pierce pull-up 3

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 Brooklyn. “Did you see Paul Pierce hit that pull-up 3-pointer (with 24 seconds left to get them within two)?” Johnson asked reporters. “I had in my mind that he was probably gonna do it again, so I played the foul game. It’s a coaching...

Recap: Truth’s heroics not enough in Brooklyn

  This one started off as we all thought it would-C’s looked tired & sloppy and were out-hustled by the Nets. After 1Q, Brooklyn was up 31-26 and the C’s had given-up 50% FG and already committed 6 turnovers. Things then started to turn around a bit in the 2nd. Behind some fantastic play from Bass and Barbosa, who had 10 pts in the quarter, the C’s pulled to within 3...

Rondo Rolls His Ankle In the Nike Air Max 360 BB Low, AGAIN!

Last night Rajon Rondo rolled his ankle while wearing a pair of Nike Air Max 360 BB Low sneakers.
