Why KG's Game-1 T should be rescinded

The reason given for that T was that KG acted after the whistle had blown. This is faulty logic, and the T should be rescinded. Reason: When a whistle blows for a foul and your opponent CONTINUES...

Fans: Please Take a Step Back

Imo, nothing good can come from the kind of breathless enthusiasm I'm reading about the coming of Brad Stevens, from fans on this and other forums. I mean NOTHING good. All we're doing is...

Wishing Kobe Bryant A Speedy Recovery

Yes, I know we Celtics fans are supposed to hate all things Lakers and most especially Kobe Bryant. I think what happened to Kobe last night transcends all that. That man is a TRUE WARRIOR, and...

Avery Bradley's role in question

Bradley’s offense has gotten out-of-control bad. What should be done about that? I believe we've reached the point where either: (a) the team must change AB’s role (e.g., STOP relying on his...

KG talks...

1

(Click the "csnne.com" link to see the video) He seems to be hinting that... (1) He's a bit less than 100% physically, but expects to overcome that and give max effort for these playoffs. (2) This is probably his last season. (And this is the second time he's dropped that kind of hint to the media.)

Is KG's injury worse than we've been told?

Given this team's history with injuries -- especially 09's Kevin Garnett debacle -- it's fair to wonder whether they're pulling the wool over our eyes again. Is KG coming back, or not? I have a...

Word of advice for NBA referees about Bradley

It's clear that you NBA referees do not understand what Avery Bradley is capable of doing on defense. And truth be told, it's not easy to see in real time.

Garnett & Pierce: Going out together, in a blaze?

Rondo and the Celtics' Future: Some Great News

In the Feb 7 post-Lakers game show with Gary Tanguay and Donny Marshall, about 15 minutes in, the following conversation happened: Donny Marshall: ....No Rondo, no championship.Gary Tanguay...

Is winning the most important thing of all?

Should we -- meaning this team, of which we are all a part, or consider ourselves a part (and rightfully so, as we fans are, fundamentally, the reason for this team's existence) -- sacrifice...

Signs that the Celtics may be giving up on 2012-13?

We fans wanna keep fighting. So long as KG is healthy and our guys are all ready for the fight, we like to believe they can still contend.... where "contend" is defined as "it's still possible to...

Rondo's Continuing Refusal

Knicks' lessons on how to beat the Heat

This game (December 6, 2012 Knicks vs. Heat) is not the first such lesson we've seen this year; but it's an excellent case in point. To reliably beat the Heat, of course you gotta do a lot of...

Guard changing?

Lakers with Howard would be dangerous to the Celtics

Jason Terry a Celtic? Ask Deron Williams, Dwight Howard and maybe even Joe Johnson

Though the Cs can match any Suns' offer for Ray, I believe they won't, and Ray will probably end up in Phoenix. (Heat can't offer enough to assuage Ray's pride, much less to be competitive.) Thing...
