Dispelling the Rumor: GSW and Love

We all know that if the Timberwolves want to trade Kevin Love for future potential, then the Celtics have the upper hand in any trade, but much has been made of Flip Saunders wanting to trade Kevin...

The Heat should not be looking to add Melo

The media is really pushing the idea of Carmelo Anthony going to the Heat, and I get it, at least from the media’s perspective. It’s a sexy story, it gets clicks on the web, it fuels interest, and...

It’s always about the money… just not the salary.

A 2013 article by Business Insider drops the stat that LeBron James receives 70% of his earnings from endorsements. This same article puts Derrick Rose’s endorsements at 56% of his earnings. The...

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!

Truth be told, we have no idea how this off-season will shake out for the Celtics. So let’s just have fun, and by "have fun," I mean create the most preposterous off-season rebuild I can think of....

What's the BIG Deal?

The Celtics need a big man. They need a real, legitimate guy in the middle, with shot-blocking capability.

Smells Like Trade Spirit

It’s fun to lose and to pretend With the recent comments from Wyc Grousbeck regarding "some fireworks," and Danny Ainge’s own recent comments relating his expectation that the Celtics will be...

Are Celtics fans being shortsighted?

What happens if we consider trades that assume we will continue to be a mediocre team next season, intent on making the real splash in the summer of 2015?

Draft pick trading and positioning as of 2-12-14

This is something I do for myself, (because I'm obsessive) and I thought others might be curious to look it over. Here's a list of who is currently sending picks to who and where their current...

The morale of the story

The Celtics are 3-18 in their last 21. What happened? Morale came into play, big time

Rondo Rumor Reality

via www.nba.com The rumors have been rampant, repeated and ridiculous. Rajon Rondo traded here, there and everywhere. We’ve already heard the rumors out of Detroit, Sacramento, Indiana and most...

Dear Danny Claus

Christmas is almost here and I know it’s really last minute to mail in my Christmas wish list, but here it is anyway.

Breakthrough

via img.bleacherreport.net There are no win expectations this season. What Brad Stevens is charged with instead, is to find effective combinations of players, do what he can to maximize each...

Worst-case scenario?

Are we Celtics fans about to experience exactly what every NBA fan base wants to avoid?

New Tires

When I suffer a blowout, I get a new tire. When the Celtics suffer a blowout I think of how to re-tread the team. Here are some ideas to spur some conversation. Trade 1: h...

37-48-39-30

In last night’s loss to the Charlotte Bobcats, Tommy Heinsohn made a comment that struck me as odd. During the fourth quarter, during a period of time when the Celtics desperately needed...

Playing with the NBA Trade Machine is fun, isn’t it?

Here’s a couple trade ideas, and I’m aware that the first one could not happen until after September 12. TRADE 1: Houston Rockets receive: Brandon Bass, Gerald Wallace Oklahoma City Thunder...

The Real Question

There is really no question in regard to tanking. The discussion as to whether the Celtics should or should not tank is futile. Mostly due to the fact that each individual on the Celtics will, in...

The Legacy of the pirate Chris Paul and the Clipper Ship

I keep hearing how this generation’s professional athletes are more than just athletes. They are supposedly some super hybrid of athlete, businessman, and pop icon, uber-sensitive to public...

I had a nightmare

This was my nightmare: it was three days before the upcoming NBA draft and Celtics fans, including myself, were still waiting on tenterhooks. Doc had made no clear decision, Kevin Garnett had made...

The ‘Man In the Mirror’ Game

I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer… This is starting to hurt. Watching this Celtics team is becoming very...

In Reference to Jared Sullinger

Tommy Heinsohn: He's had many Tommy Points tonight. Mike Gorman: He's kind of a walking Tommy Point. Nothing more needs to be said. But FanPosts must be at least 75 words so I will do what I...

The Sky is Not Falling. But...

I understand the concern. This Celtics team is underperforming our expectations and seems light years away from its potential. However, I am in no way in favor of blowing it up. Whether your...

Go Get 'Em, Perk.

You haven’t shaken the Celtics yet, Miami, at least not by how I figure things. You see, just because an NBA player plays for the Celtics doesn’t mean that he has really become a Celtic. And...

Will they stay, or will they go?

Game 5 X Files: The Truth is Still Out There

Paul Pierce has been my favorite Celtic for some time now. Paul pulled this team out of the abyss of the Celtics’ 1990s. He stuck with Boston when other stars on poor teams demanded trades like...

LeBron James vs. the Celtics

As the Celtics move through this series with the Heat, one has to stop and consider the frequency that this team has been pitted against LeBron James. It seems like a lot. While thinking of the...

Celtics Lose Game 2 in Miami: 33-18

The final score of game 2 of the Celtics vs. Heat doesn’t mean as much as this number, 33-18, the number of fouls called on the Celtics compared to the number of fouls called...

Moving On From Game 5 - Celtics v Hawks

If the Celtics shoot 45% last night instead of 44% we don't see the blemishes. If a hundred things last night go slightly the other direction we don't see where things need to be improved.
