In August of 2008 Bob Cousy turned 80. Two months later Comcast informed him that he would not be a part of any more Celtics broadcasts. Enjoy this look at Bob Cousy's early years.

Green Bandwagon Joins CelticsBlog

I had no idea what I was doing when I created Celtics Bandwagon in the fall of 2006. Thankfully SB Nation saw something and brought me aboard. That coupled with my bold strategy to trick...

Gatling

Chris Gatling played in an All-Star game?! True story. That was the year Glen Rice broke Wilt Chamberlain's record for points in a half. Wilt was actually in the house. And in the waning moments a young KG shadowed Rice to try and prevent it from happening. MJ threw up a triple double. I love NBA TV.

Preseason Game 6: Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks Recap

Preseason Game 6: Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks Open Game Thread

I watched chunks of last night's game and was encouraged to see Tony Allen playing/looking better than he has in quite some time. Meanwhile, Sam Cassell will make his debut tonight and my lukewarm...

Preseason Game 5: Boston Celtics vs. New Jersey Nets Open Game Thread

At some point during the regular season I will write a post about a basketball team playing listless, uninspired basketball. If last year was any judge it won't be the Celtics. However, I encourage...

Preseason Game 4: Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Recap

This was one of the most boring games I've ever watched. It was choppy, the crowd was, for the most part, lifeless and overall the game just dragged on until Leon Powe mercifully blocked a shot to...

Patrick O'Bryant

It's really early. And expectations are a lot different for Celtics fans. We're just hoping O'Bryant can be a back up center. On top of that he's signed to a reasonable contract (just under...

Preseason Game 4: Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Open Game Thread

After about the 3rd or 4th preseason game I start to zone out a bit and pine for the regular season. That intensifies when Boston takes the court with a team its already played in the preseason....

Welcome Liberty Ballers

Make sure to check out Liberty Ballers, the new 76ers blog on SB Nation. It's good to grab another Atlantic Division blog. 3 down, 2 to go.

Several points: 1. Kevin Garnett is entering his 14th NBA season. 2. Last night was Boston's third preseason game. 3. It was the second game of a back-to-back. 4. No one would have said anything if Rafer Alston scored an uncontested lay up in that situation. Despite all that KG went for the block. Celtics fans should make sure they enjoy Garnett's time in Boston.

Preseason Game 3: Boston Celtics vs. Houston Rockets Recap

- The Rockets had 45 free throws after 3 quarters. That's insane. - Tommy Heinsohn is pushing Gabe Pruitt aggressively right now. I'm not ready to buy. - The Bill Walker era could go a lot of...

Boston Celtics vs. Houston Rockets - Halftime Reaction

I got a text from a reader at the game. It's not the highest quality as those aren't typically formatted for a larger screen. But I appreciate the effort. More importantly I can't wait to talk to...

Bob Cousy: Fired

I'm coaching a road game today and don't have enough time to fully dive into the news that Comcast fired Bob Cousy. I have to say it caught me off guard for several reasons. 1. Cousy was incredibly...

Three Rockets to Watch: 3. Rafer Alston - There's a part of me that's still surprised that he's the top point guard in Houston. Not as surprised as the Dream Shake, but surprised nevertheless....

Posting Bill Walker dunks is already becoming somewhat of a tradition at Green Bandwagon. Several points about this one: 1. Since the C's aren't counting on him fans aren't going to make as big a deal about it. However, Brian Scalabrine has not looked sharp. 2. I recognize that dunking does not make a NBA career. 3. Screaming into the basket microphone is what it is. 4. Is Walker out of his mind? Who bumps LeBron? At the same time I like the fearless attitude. I just don't want him to be the next DeShawn Stevenson.

Preseason Game 2: Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Recap

- I was impressed with how quickly Mo Williams pushed the ball up the court when he set his mind to it. In fact during the first several possessions of the game Williams, and LeBron James, pushed...

Preseason Game 2: Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Open Game Thread

I've been busy all day and it's not slowing down for a couple more hours. So I'm going to have to go light on the preview tonight. For me it's all about Mo Williams. Can he step up and help LeBron...

Basketball Is Hard

I spent the better part of my summer trying to dunk. Ultimately I failed. Yet in the process I got in better shape and improved several aspects of my game. And pick up basketball was a big part of...

I was hoping the Bill Walker dunk would be up before I went to bed. Thank you LilPharmacist11. Meanwhile, as he was dunking and scowling it hit me that Walker needs a nickname. Skywalker felt too easy and then Gary Tanguay threw it out in the post game. So that's out. Something to think about...

Preseason Game 1: Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers Quick Reactions

I never want to be one of those reactionary types. Still, here are some quick thoughts: - Leon Powe gets buckets. We know this. - Thaddeus Young is a player. - The 76ers have the potential to run...
