Honestly, the whole reason I read your blog is because its not "inside". You dont censor comments and you write basically what you want to. I understand its a business venture for you guys, but playing the game the Celtics (ie. the nba) want you to will turn the site into espn page 2 with a cool name.

My favorite part? Making Laker fans feel even shittier about riding him to 3 championships. Retiring as Celtic? Perfect.

Im kind of surprised noone has brought it up, but does anyone else think Harrison Barnes would be a fantastic replacement for The Captain when he takes his bow? I get to see a lot of this kid now that I live in NC and he reminds me a lot of Paul in some ways. He'll most likely be available after this next season. I wonder if theres any way we could put a package together to entice someone to move that pick. Unfortunately, its def. gonna be a top 3.

Hate to say it, but Thibs looks totally lost on the sideline. When he should be injecting his players with confidence and encouraging better decision making, he seems to be doing the exact opposite.

I love (mostly) Rondo but that was....a dick move. If I was that guy, id have turned and cuffed him.

I dont think Mr. Russell is against funding of public education. His statement above seems obviously to imply the exact opposite. With all the scumbags and historical monsters we praise in public life I think your criticism of Russell and his "ego" is way, way off base. Grind your axe elsewhere, like a Laker site (although to be honest, I dont think even they have such a poor opinion of the man)

All things considered, I thought JO did as well as he possibly could have under the circumstances he was faced with, injuries and such. To have played with the knee and wrist issues, IMO demonstrates his drive to contribute whatever he could. If anyone wants to give shit to someone over what these guys produced this season, direct it towards Mr. Ainge. They didnt have a lot left, and they gave us what they could, cant really ask for more than that.

First off, I think there is a 0% chance of Pierce being moved. That being said, one thing that im sure will be weighing on Dannys mind is, Do we let KG and Ray retire with the C's, or try and trade them while they still have some value left. Also, no matter what he says, I think he will look very hard at what he can get in exchange for Rondo. For my part, having Rondo run the team and be the veteran without P, KG, or Ray, is a terrifying prospect. He has not matured according to plan, thats obvious to me. But hes a very high talent value when taking his contract into consideration, which makes him an attractive trade option. On the lockout, yeah that would suck. Im being selfish here, but my two sports are soccer and basketball. I watch very little TV aside from Celtics and Liverpool games, and need to justify my ridiculous Time Warner Cable bill. Also,it will be good for the NBA to take advantage of the fact that there will be no (I believe) football next season. Less competition, showcase early season Sunday games, could work well for the league.

I played youth basketball, as well as spent a long time hanging out, in Fall River. Chris and his brother were heroes to so many kids, from the parks to Durfee HS to the elementary playgrounds. Sadly, his is a story many kids from Fall River are all too familiar with. Glad to hear hes doing a bit better.

This is really great news. This means a hell of a lot to the club and its attempts to remain near (or on) the top of the league. Guys want to play for him, hes a great coach, and he really has become a part of Celtics tradition, which he whole-heartedly embraces. What else could we ask for in a coach?

Its time. Danny needs to do the deed. We must rebuild, hes got to find a way to do it and still compete. This was a painful, painful night.

Its late, but I just heard. This is wonderful news. I couldnt be happier for Mr. Russell, the people of Boston and the whole state. Awesome.

Im sorry to have to say it, and I love Doc as our coach and appreciate many of the things Danny has done for us as a player and a GM, but I do not trust a word of what these guys say when it comes to injuries. Yup, its the KG thing again. No, im not going to let it go. Not saying I dislike the guys, just saying I dont trust them. Shaq is a huge box office pull. Selling playoff tickets is huge business for those "franchise" owners whose main concern has always and will always (no matter what they say) be to turn a profit, a large one if possible. The collective let-down of officially announcing Shaq being shut down for the Playoffs could undercut those sales. Which is why they strung as along with KG. Which is why they may do it again with Shaq.

Dude lets not be hasty now...

Couldnt agree more. I think hes totally done. A shame really, he did so well for us when he was fit.

I want to see Jeff Green play about 46 minutes tonight, no three pointers. I will have a fit if I see him camped out in that damn corner again.
1 reply
I can only say one thing. Not impressed. We demand more of this team. If there is a switch, it better be primed. Its just about time to get down to business. If we still can. I really wish we had a bit of a cushion record-wise so we could play guys like Green and Krstic 40 minutes a game. Am I the only one totally sick and tired of seeing Green constantly camped out on the corner-perimeter? Doc, get his ass where it belongs. In or near the paint, where his athleticism and offensive talent can make a difference. Out there, he's useless to us.

Effin A right man.... I tell you what, Doc BETTER sign up beyond this season. To think we missed out on Thibs for one more year of Doc, then the inevitable bailout to Miami or Orlando would be like a punch in the balls. Sign the fuckin contract Doc.

Im with Tommy tonight...get Green the ball. let him score. Hes got game, just needs to feel comfortable showing it. Impressed with JO. We look much better with a real center in there. Hope he stays fit and is ready mentally come the playoffs. For me, its Sasha Grey. What? Shes a classy actress. Ever see that Soderberg movie? Brilliant.

From all accounts, a true champion. Without a doubt one of the most well liked guys to ever wear the Celtics green. Very happy for Satch.

Big collective sigh now....

I totally missed that comment by Webber. Man I really hope hes wrong. Even a small, nagging injury to any of the "big four" and we have no shot making it past the 2nd round.
1 reply
Great win tonight. But was it worth the price? Obviously not. By the looks of it, hes done. I hope Im wrong. Does anyone think we have a chance with NO truly healthy center in the playoffs? Feeling rather pessimistic about this one.

The only thing im certain of is that theres hardly any regular season left, hes not playing, and he has been injured forever. When will he get back into game shape? How long will it take? What is the exact status of the injury? Is he still 39? I wish I could envision a scenario where shaq plays again this year, but aside from conspiracy theories, I cant. I would like to hear a reasonable account of how shaq COULD come back this season. I really just dont see it. Not this late.
