College basketball season has ended & some of the top players are now investigating the possibility of entering the NBA Draft. In 2000, the NBA implemented a rule saying anyone who enters the draft must be at least 19 years old, making it so most players will spend at least one year in college.Ideally, players [...]
Wherever Lebron goes, this will be a monumental decision. This decision could not only shape the NBA Finals for years to come but also change how teams approach free agency and the trade deadline. Either way, we will all be watching tonight.
It’s possible that I could be wrong, it’s possible that John Wall is not holding up the gang sign known as “bk” or “blood killer”. Maybe it’s the angle that I’m looking at it from, the timing of the picture being taken or possibly even a different hand gesture that the Kentucky Wildcats used when [...]
It has just flown in that Doc Rivers announced that he will be coming back to coach the Boston Celtics for the 2010-2011 season. The news is flying around from several sources, including Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Washburn reported that Doc Rivers text messaged: “I’m coming back. I want another crack at it [...]
The 2010 NBA Draft is just outside the 24 hour mark, meaning that there are going to be more trade rumors shot around than a Rasheed Wallace three ball. With the multiple uncertainties of the Boston Celtics, let’s re-cap just to refresh the memory. 1) Ray Allen is eligible for free agency unless we offer [...]
I wanted to start this now (8:21 PM) just to show my state of mind before the Celtics/Lakers game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. After reliving all the memories of the pre- and post-2004 Boston Red Sox, I don’t know whether I’m expecting the worst again or just flooded with emotions from all of [...]
The press conference with both Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Nate Robinson after game 4 was absolutely hilarious. For those of you that didn’t have a chance to see it, here you go, enjoy. Thanks to Lorianne DiSabato for the photo of Glen Davis.
Tonight’s game 3 of the NBA Finals can’t get here soon enough. It seems that the Celtics always have someone to take the reigns when others aren’t performing up to snuff. Whether it be Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Big Baby, Perk, Rondo, Nate Robinson or game 2′s hero Ray Allen. Ray Ray hit 8 three [...]
The NBA Finals are upon us after an agonizing four day lay off (has it only been four?) which sees the Celtics and Lakers renew their storied rivalry. Much has been written about how these teams compare to their 2008 counterparts where the Celtics won in six. However, while the rosters remain mostly the same, [...]
The NBA today reviewed the two technicals given to Kendrick Perkins during Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals and have decided to rescind the second technical assessed to him. This means that Perk will avoid the mandatory one game suspension for any player with seven technicals in the playoffs. This is huge news for [...]
Super shocking that Dwight Howard elbowed Glen Davis under the hoop, hurt him and had no foul called and no further action taken against him during the remainder of the Eastern Conference Finals. As you remember, Dwight Howard slammed Paul Pierce to the floor earlier in the series and was called for a flagrant I, [...]
As the Boston Celtics are one win away from another NBA Finals appearance, let’s take a look at the most dominant teams in the NBA, NHL, and MLB and see who is the best dynasty of them all. The Montreal Canadians’ Dynasty Founded in 1909, the Canadians are the oldest pro hockey team and are [...]
Confused about the plot of Lost? Well, you’re not the only one as this clip shows Kevin Garnett explaining the smoke monster amongst other Lost intricacies to Glen “Big Baby” Davis. Photo credit: Imagine24 | NC-SA 2.0
In game 2 of the Eastern Conference NBA Finals, Dwight Howard did this to Paul Pierce. I’m not concerned about the well being of Paul Pierce, he stayed in and played one of his best games of the post season this year (28 Pts., 5 Reb., 5 Asst.). The NBA rule on flagrant fouls states: [...]
After the successful CelticsChants “New York Knicks, New York Knicks” experiment during Game 6, we figured it’s time to get ready the conference finals against the Orlando Magic by coming up with ideas for Celtics chants. Here’s our top five ideas. Tell us yours in the comments below! Top 5 Anti-Magic Chants for Celtics Fans [...]
A team effort pushes the Boston Celtics into the conference finals against last year’s foe the Orland Magic. With Lebron James facing the potential spectre of his last game in Cleveland, the Cavaliers bench couldn’t keep up with solid performances from the C’s bench. Lebron did his part with a triple-double, but the team defense [...]
Bill Simmons came up with a great idea last week, a twitter account for Celtics fans to get live chant ideas. The first chant idea is simple, relevant and very chanty. During Lebron James’ first trip to the free throw line (and following trips), Celtics fans should chant “New York Knicks, New York Knicks”. Brilliant. [...]
Rasheed Wallace. The very mention of his name is usually followed by an expletive filled tirade from any Celtics fan, including our very own Josh Gans. Rasheed showed up to training camp woefully out of shape and the long NBA season has done nothing for his conditioning. He looks like a giant Pillsbury Dough Boy [...]
Since round 2 of the NBA Playoffs is starting today here are my predictions for the teams who’ve advanced so far. Once the Magic’s competitor is determined I’ll post a prediction for that game too. East: Cleveland vs. Boston The Cavs are the top seed in the East and hold home court advantage over the [...]
After getting home from the Boston Celtics Game 5 victory over the Miami Heat, I flipped on the tube to catch the last minutes of the Cleveland Cavaliers – Chicago Bulls matchup. I watched, gleefully, as Lebron James shot free throws to clinch the win and the series. Now, I am not one of those [...]
I know we’re a day late and a buck short, but here are some of our predictions for the first round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs. In order to keep it fair and consistent, I have decided not to change the predictions that we made before the first round started on Saturday. Josh Gans Round [...]
Last season, the Celtics lost some key players that were in large part, reasons why they won the NBA championship in 2008. Leon Powe and Tony Allen were two dominant down low forces of the bench for Boston. After KG’s knee injury, the Celtics went out and signed Rasheed Wallace to replace their down low [...]
Yup, that’s me up there literally crying into my Eddie House jersey. My hallowed, lucky jersey that I’ve had since the 07-08 season. From the time I saw the revitalized Celtics take the floor, Eddie House, along with James Posey, was always a spark off the bench. Whether it’d be hitting a couple of quick [...]
The slumping Celtics have dropped three straight games against top tier teams. With the loss column growing, so are the questions. The Celtics are at times looking confused, frustrated, and worst of all, old. Here are some random tidbits that have been running through my mind over the course of the week. It all starts [...]
So it has been quite a while since I’ve had an opportunity to speak with work and such. Over the past couple weeks, the Celtics and the Bruins have been absolutely shameful. There are no excuses for any of us anymore, busy or not, it is time to get behind our teams. Injury Plagued Celtics [...]

The Boston Celtics have come out with a commanding 10-4 record in the Atlantic Division this season. Although they’ve been playing well overall, we have lost a few games that could have been won. Here are 3 moves the Celtics can make to produce more wins. 3-2 Zone With a high scoring offense, the Celtics [...]
In last nights battle between D-Wade and the Heat against LeBron and the Cavs, take a look at the biggest dunk of the night by Wade. Thanks to the always great, Keith Allison, for the picture of Dwyane Wade.
Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Hornets was a tense game that was closer than the 97-87 final score. It was full of hard bumps, physical play, technicals, and impossible three pointers. Let’s go to the live report: The Big Three: Paul Pierce set the tone of the game with his key baskets when the [...]
This is the top to bottom list of the four greatest Boston athletes in their respective sports as well as overall: Tom Brady – New England Patriots Tom Brady has brought three Super Bowl Championships to New England as well as the first 16-0 regular season in franchise history. Brady has won two Super Bowl [...]
The Boston Celtics opened their season with a 95-89 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that lost only two games all year at home last season. Kevin Garnett had 13 points and 10 rebounds in his first game back in nearly six months while Paul Pierce came up big with two huge jumpers in [...]
Today marks the start of both the 2009-10 NBA season and the 2009-10 Boston Celtics Championship run. With the addition of Rasheed Wallace to Boston’s under-rated bench, the Celtics look to make it two in three years and double the number of rings for the Big Four. Boston Celtics 09-10 Predictions We compiled predictions from [...]
The Boston Herald reported on Monday that “Big Baby” Glen Davis broke his thumb in an altercation with a friend from Louisiana late Sunday night. Davis reportedly was trying to defend himself and sustained an injury to his right thumb. According to Danny Ainge, he will miss a “significant amount of time.” This is terrible [...]

Instead of dunking on Cleveland in the playoffs, Leon Powe will be wearing their jersey next season. Leon Powe reportedly reached a two year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers for $1.77 M according to ESPN. Leon Powe was an amazing player for the Boston Celtics in our 2008 Championship season and I respect him as [...]

With the newly acquired Rasheed Wallace, the Celtics are very excited for next season. Not only are the fans and the team excited, but so is this guy. Thanks to Eric Kilby for the picture of Gino on the big screen at The Garden.
The Boston Red Sox preformed a miracle when they won the World Series in 2004 after coming back to beat the Yankees in the ALCS after being down three games to none. All around town we were being told over and over again, “it’s never been done before”, “no one’s ever come back after losing [...]
The big news for the Celtics this off-season has finally landed. Boston signed Rasheed Wallace, former Detroit Piston, to a two year deal at the mid-level exception ($5.6 M – $5.8 M). The mid-level exception is used for teams that are already over the salary cap. Here is a very nice definition of the mid-level [...]

The NBA Draft has not always been the way it is today. Starting from 1947, the Draft had Territorial Picks, where any team could could give up it’s first round pick and then choose any player from the local area. The idea behind territorial picks was for teams that weren’t doing well to draft a [...]
