Also - ESPN just said that Ainge is "ACTIVELY and AGGRESSIVLY" attempting to trade Rondo, and that a Deal with GSW for Stephan Curry was in the works, but has since cooled off.

He's not going to get too many hits. His page takes about 4 hours to load up even on Verizon FiOS at 35 Mbps, and looks like it was made by a 3rd grader with coke bottle glasses, on a Geocities homepage editor in 1997.

How can Orlando be a far better team, if they've never done what the Celtics did in 2008, and have done 17 times? You're really considering that Big Baby "Helped win the Championship in 2008!" Really? Dude rode pine and waved a towel. He's the reason we LOST last year. He's the reason we had to go get Sheed in 2009. He got traded because he's on his way down, not up. Why not go try to promote your shitty blog somewhere else you know-nothing clown.

Nice. Chuck just jinxed us. Good Job.

One thing Steimsma has done is to expose exactly just how much Chris Wilcox absolutely sucks. More beanpole, less Sheed jr, thanks Doc.

The entire idea of "homerism" as a negative aspect of sports fandom is fucking retarded. It's like a huge collection of directionless, frat-douche, sports betting fiends who come from places where no professional sports franchises would ever set up shop decided to outlaw the idea of rooting for your home team (or the team who pays your fucking salary). Calling Tommy Heinshon or anyone at CSNNE a "Homer" is no different than calling Paul Pierce a "homer" for rooting for his own team to win. They're on the Celtics Payroll for Christ's sake!!! If I want bland, synthetic, sterilized for my protection commentary on sports that involves no passion or pride, I'll turn on ESPN. Or better yet, I'll open a copy of USA Today. Impartiality and feigned indifference to the outcome of the game has taken every ounce of passion out of rooting for the game, in almost every sport. It's sad. Being a sports fan in 2011 has become nothing more than being a stat citing, fantasy league fapping, individualistic one-upsmanship contest. It's liek you have to be a sports statistic equivalent of a Dungeons and Dragons nerd to be considered a "knowledgable" sports fan. Pathetic. Also - Canada fucking sucks in every aspect of everything they do.

Donny Marshall sucks. Always has. They really need to get rid of him. All he does is talk about dude's "big shoulders" and other creepy comments about player's bodies. I don't see the value of having a Basketball analyst who sucked as a player.

Didn't Danny just spend $6 million on Chris Wilcox? Isn't that the same thing?

KY C's Fan - I hear you. I want to be excited for the season too. But You have to realize - WE have NO Center. J.O. will be good for maybe 5-6 games before his knees give out again, and there's NO ONE behind him. Sure, at PF we're all set with KG, Bass, Wilcox. and Jeff Green can swing between PF and SF. We have a solid PG rotation with Rondo and Dooling. I don't know that I trust Avery Bradley to be Ray's only backup. So no Center at all, and No real backup for Ray. At best, with all the back-to-backs, and back-to-back-to-backs, we'll be lucky with the 6th or 7th seed. We'll get bounced in the first round by the Knicks, because they DO have a Center. I would have rathered have no Basketball at all, and let Danny blow it all up after a full locked out season, than watch this aging, steaming pile of crap get everyone excited for the first 3 weeks, then take a dump on the rest of the season and get ousted by a divisional rival. Had we Landed West, or CP3, I would have liked our chances much better because - they're vastly more talented and YOUNGER, and they would have lured better free agents and trades than what our current team can.

I don't see how they have any pieces left to trade for Howard. They would have to trade like 4 guys to equal his salary.

Only in the NBA can you trade an oft-injured midget for a Spanish Llama and the Ugly Kardashian.

CP3 for Bynum and Odom? So I guess the Lakers are going small. Really, really small.

because there's a very good chance Dwight Howard will be wearing green next year as well.

I'm as big a Rondo fan as any other Celts fan, but if this is possible: DO IT. DO IT NOW.

I really just wish they would shit or get off the pot at this point. I want my money back, be it froma refund of my season ticket payments, or from gettinga deal done so we can start the season and I can put all my tickets up on stubhub. I've already notified my sales agent of my intent to cancel my tickets after this season. At this point I feel like my money is being held hostage. They never should have taken a dime of anyone's money until they figured this shit out first.

From My sales Rep. Spoke to him today. Because I pay monthly (instead of in one lump sum) I won't see any refunds until February, unless they decide to cancel the entire season before December. The same goes for you if you pay monthly. Basically if you pay monthly, you should still have a balance on your account, right? They wisely computed the monthly payment percentages this year so that come October, if games started getting cancelled, they wouldn't have to actually pay anyone anything back, until the remaining balances are exhausted first. I still owe $273. That $273 was due to be paid in evenly distributed amounts over October, November, December, and January. So going forward I won't have a monthly bill, but I won't actually see a REFUND of anything until February at the earliest. It's a scam.

they're not going to offer any kind of refunds unless the entire season is cancelled. if they play a partial season, they will roll that money over to playoffs or future seasons. and they won't start processing that until MARCH.

The problem is, without a season, there's no means for the fans to rise up and show our disgust. The best way taht could be done would be to boycott ticket sales and advertisers who support the NBA. But without any games - we can't do that. The BIGGER problem is those of us who are Season Ticket holders. We're getting royally assbanged by the NBA/Celtics right now. I have to keep paying my monthly bill, even though there will likely be no season. and until the final decision is made, several thousand dollars of my hard earned money is being held hostage. but worse - if I decide to stop paying in protest, the Celtics will TAKE money already paid money, cancel my account as the fine print on the annual agreeement says it is non-refundable, and KEEP my money, even if the season gets cancelled. But wait - there's more. If I continue to pay on time, the Celtics will SIT on my money, even if there is no season, until next MARCH. FRICKING MARCH!!!! at which time they will BEG me to stay a season ticket holder and roll that money over to the next year. If I choose to take a refund for a season that was never played, I will VOID my season Ticket holder status, and give up my current seats, even if I chose to stay on the payment plan for the next year. THAT'S RIGHT - Wyc Grosbeck is telling his customers, if you don't let us keep your money, we will give you a refund, but you have to give up the rights to your seats to get it. I'm done with the NBA. FUCK THEM. I want my money back, and I don't ever want to hear about it again.

Bill Simmons is a tool. He recently referred to Bruins "rat" winger Brad Marchand as "Andrew Marchand" in an article about his now famous tattoo where they spelled "Stanley Cup Champians" wrong. Simmons should just cut the pretense and just wrote for the LA teams like he wants to and start huffing Kobe's dong.

Someone should explain to Stephen Jackson that any tensions harbored in Boston against him have nothing to do with his skin color, and everything to do with his idiotic thug/gun tattoos. You can't cry racism while also acting like a wannabe gangsta. That's like an Italian guy complaining about Mob stereotypes, while getting tattoos of Al Pacino in Scarface on his chest. Stupid.

Welcome to the Jungle is played at the Garden because of Antoine Walker's comments on opening night about the "New Garden" which was then known as the Fleetcenter being less of a Garden than it is a Jungle. Welcome to the Jungle works just fine. We don't need to replace it with any horrible mid-90's Rap/Rock hybrids like RATM or any of that nuMetal crap like Drowning Pool, or Saliva. I'm surprised no one is suggesting Limp Bizkit up in dis piece. LOL. Shipping Up to Boston would be fine, if only because the Dropkicks are actually local guys (mostly). Kenny would love that.

You're paying for Season Tickets now because you signed an agreement saying you would, before the Lockout started. If they don't play, you will get every cent back, plus interest. If they play a shortened season, you will get the difference back, plus interest. If you don't want to pay now, cancel the credit card you set up for the monthly payments and get a new card number issued. That's what I did. Now instead of having $450 sucked out of my account every month, I pay it when I want to.

I'm just glad it's over now, so I don't have to sit on Pins and Needles every night wondering if someone else is going to get injured. The saving grace is that - at least I don't have to continue paying for Playoffs tickets. Reality: Miami needed about 40 bad calls that went in their favor to beat 2/3 of the actual Boston Celtics. They should be happy they moved on, but not proud of how they got there. Beating a team with a 1 armed point guard, no Center to speak of, and with enormous amounts of terrible officiating in your favor in every game isn't exactly an accomplishment.
