Celtics linked to rumors involving Andrew Bynum

Andrew Bynum has been suspended indefinitely by the Cavaliers for conduct detrimental to the team. The talented 7-footer has as many mental and emotional issues as he does physical problems. The Cavs are now trying to trade Bynum, a move that will be near impossible now that he’s been suspended. The likeliest scenario involves Cleveland waiving Bynum before January 7th, the date...

Twas The Night Before Celtsmas

‘Twas the night before Celtsmas, three years post E.House Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse The C’s jerseys were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that Rajon Rondo soon would be there   The rookies were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of playing time danced in their heads The dancers in their outfits, and Lucky in his cap Had five long days off...

Source: Celtics still talking Asik trade with Houston

Via Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports: The Rockets let their self-imposed deadline to trade center Omer Asik pass, but Boston is still having trade discussions in hopes of landing him, a source said. I’m hoping Danny Ainge keeps the (alleged) original offer on the table; Brandon Bass, Courtney Lee and the Clippers 2015 1st round draft pick. This latest rumor has me thinking it make...

Recap: Bah humbug

Not as big a first quarter start as we’ve become accustomed to, but Boston was only down 20-17 after 1Q tonight in Indiana. Avery Bradley was hot early, (again) putting in 9 points in the first quarter. In the second quarter, the Celtics started to look more like a team that was on the second night of a back-to-back. But it was more than that. The Pacers started to push, but Boston...

Reason 9,957 to love Larry Bird

While fielding questions about trade speculation surrounding often injured forward Danny Granger, Larry Bird dropped this bomb: “He doesn’t work hard enough (in the offseason),” Bird said. “He’s not a guy who’ll push himself to the brink like a lot of our guys do. He works hard but he doesn’t push himself. That’s why he starts slow every year and he just works his...

Recap: Sloppy and lazy 2nd half costs C’s victory over Wiz

Damn, this team is a tease. The Celtics raced out to another fast start (30-14 1st quarter) only to gradually fall apart over the final 3 quarters. Once the Wizards ramped up their defense in the 2nd half, the Celtics wilted. They got sloppy and lazy. I believe 9 of their 12 TOs came in the 2nd half. This was a very winnable game for Boston. Instead, they were served a 106-99 loss...
