Damn that's pretty. How was this not the NBA assist of the night? Choosing that crap from the Heat Bulls game is just a disservice to fans.

I'm pretending rondo read this before the game and responded with that oh so pretty 18-17-20 (WHAT?!)

Rondo was ridiculous today. Only player with multiple triple-doubles this season and we should trade him? right...

I see the (obvious) value in Paul but don't think he's worth all the hype or giving up as much as Danny seems to be willing to give. Also is no one talking about Paul's bum knee? I'll keep my tough as nails top 5 pg thank you very much. I think Simmon's take is about right: http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/7327616/the-fourth-day-nba-christmas

The kid can certainly throw a football. I was at a celtics open practice a few years back and he was just gunning a football across the arena with little to no effort and every pass was on point. great to see the boston athletes banding together!

but i just to clarify i'm NOT endorsing starting him over pierce, but he can split some of the minutes with paul and can make a difference for sure

i mean sure green wasnt great but there were definite flashes of brilliance and in okc he averaged 15pts 5reb 2ast, so he can definitely contribute. I think a full offseason with the team will make a world of difference especially for a young guy going through his first trade. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do alongside a healthy rondo next season.

That being said though far too many turnovers. Some really dumb (crosscourt) passes down the stretch.

I dont know if anyone else saw this but rondo pulled his back and didn't warm up with the team before the second half and was getting treatment for the rest of the game. Seeing him pick it up at the end of the game was pretty encouraging. Also what is with all the pessimism? Miami did what they were supposed to and held homecourt. If the celtics do the same it's a whole new series. A series doesn't start til someone wins on the road. Let's get some rest before game 3 and get it done.

I had this exact type of injury in february and re-injured it last week, and it is one of the more painful things I have ever experienced. I was shocked that he could come back on the court last night and would say that he needs AT LEAST two weeks if not a full month off. I'd rather have him take it now than later and make sure he gets some proper rehab on that as well as re-evaluate his choice of kicks/tying. on the bright side i'm lookin forward to seeing what avery can do in the meantime.

damn...congrats thibs. thanks again for everything you've done for the celts!

So the first thing I noticed in one of the above mock drafts is that they have Crawford going 16. If he drops to 19 take him. No questions asked, the kid hit some huge shots in the tourney and as much as it pains me to say it his brother is a beast.

Man the thought of losing any of the big 3 sucks but I don't think I could deal with Pierce playing in any other uniform. That thought alone (especially right now) is WAY too much.

well in addition to the many warm replies you've already gotten here, even if the lakers do overtake the celts in championships the celts are still the greatest one town franchise in the NBA. also all this talk about 22 years, um where are you guys post kobe? he has maybe 5 years left in him probably less. come on now. get real.also after this post season (aka the summer of lebron) the entire NBA heirarchy will likely shift especially if you get two superstars on one team. then we're all screwed haha. PS isn't the phrase true laker fan an oxymoron?

also the scal bit is kinda forced by perk's injury. honestly I've seen as much as I can stand out of shelden. your wife can dunk for chrissakes. so i'm just happy we didnt have to witness that atrocity along with a loss tonight.

there were bad calls both ways the whole series. no one is disputing that. I think we are just all a bit put off by how lopsided that fourth quarter was but in the end this one is not on the refs at all but on the celts. it was theirs to lose and they couldnt quite hold on. congrats lakers.
