Celtics Morning Joe: Sulliner being asked to lead

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 30, 2014 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (1)



Rajon Rondo is leader and captain of the Boston Celtics. That doesn't mean he cant get help,and especially this season when he's mentally, physically getting back to what he once was. Sullinger, and some others are in line trying to take the load off of Rondo who just returned. That's been the case for most of the season. There has been a new leader every night. KG's not...

Celtics Morning Joe: Rondo humbled after a year off

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 29, 2014 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (2)



Rondo is many things, he's a proven tough player who fights through injuries, and he has one of the best basketball I.Q's in the game of basketball. Rondo also recently called himself humble after a year away from NBA basketball. Rondo has certainty started off the season rocky, but that should be expected. He's got a new coach, and a bunch of new teammates. Plus he's ge...

Celtics Morning Joe: Would Paul Pierce return to the Celtics?

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 28, 2014 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)


Paul Pierce will be a free agent this summer, and that leaves the door open for a possible return to Boston. A lot of what ifs follow a possible return. Such as, does Danny want to bring him back during a rebuild? Does Pierce want to leave KG in Brooklyn? What if KG retires this summer? As much as I love Paul Pierce, I don't know if it's for the best if he returns. I hate to say tha...

Celtics Morning Joe: Emotions

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 27, 2014 at 6:20 AM Comments comments (0)




Seeing KG and Pierce brought back so much. I thought of the good times, and I thought of the heartbreak also. Misery, depression, anger and pain lingerd in my mind. But I also felt happy, and it was touching. I felt overloaded with emotions during the summer, and Sunday it all came back. Watching Pierce a...

Celtics Morning Joe: Rondo won't shed a tear for KG and Pierce

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 26, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (2)


A part of Rondo, or a big part of Rondo wanted Pierce and KG out. Of course there were no issues between the players, but  Rondo probably wanted a team all his own. Rondo is right, there is no reason for him or the Celtics to shed a tear, or to get emotional during today's game. For the fans, that's a different story, and for KG and Pierce it will be a different story as well. ...

Celtics Morning Joe: Perk on the C's "not the same"

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 25, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (1)


Perkins will forever be a fan favorite in Boston. He'll always be attached to a couple of "what ifs' in Celtics history. For example, what if Perk doesn't tear his ACL in game six, or what if Danny doesn't deal Perk for Green in 2011? All water under the bridge? It all depends on who you talk to. As for the current state of the Celtics, Perk believes the C's are obviously not the sa...

Celtics Morning Joe: Pressey shines again, as starting PG

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 23, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (0)


Phil Pressey in a lot of ways came out of nowhere this season, in a season that has seen so much change. Pressey has emerged as a genuine talent, and a legit backup to Rajon. Pressey is a small dude, and his confidence is big despite being small in stature.


I never had any doubt that I was going to win that jump ball. I feel like my athletic...

Celtics Morning Joe: Chris Johnson makes a case to stay with the C's

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 22, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (1)



Signed out of the D-League on a 10-day contract. The 23-year-old Johnson made his Celtics debut on Tuesday night against the Heat, and contributed 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, an assist and a steal over 25 energetic minutes in a 93-86 against the Heat. I really like what I saw, and I don't think it was a fluke. He was hitting three's, and he was ...

Celtics Morning Joe: Celtics looking to extend Rondo, and want to trade Green?

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 21, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (3)


I thought about it for a second. Why would the Celtics make Rondo captain if they were going to trade him this year, or even trade him further down the road. Why go through all that trouble? I think the mindset has shifted around the NBA, and it seems shifted for the fact that th Celtics have named Rondo the franchises 15th captain.

Celtics Morning Joe: Ainge discusses Rondo's return

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 20, 2014 at 5:00 AM Comments comments (1)


The bottom line is that you can't fully judge Rondo. I was more pleased with his first game against the Lakers. I felt like he faded too much into the background against Orlando. I loved the clutch jumper he hit, and I felt like Stevens should have drew up a play for Rondo in the final 10 seconds of the game. Rondo is learning how to play again, the man has been off a year. So how d...

Celtics Morning Joe: Pressey earning minutes, and more

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 19, 2014 at 6:00 AM Comments comments (4)



Pressey earned his first starting gig in his young career Wednesday night. He made the most of it, he dished out 10 assists with zero turnovers. He was scoreless, but the performance was big, the Celtics ended their losing streak at 9, and the Celtics seem to have a legit point guard besides Rondo of course. He followed up his 10 assist and zero turnover game, with a 9 a...

Damn Kobe, you are an Ass. You had to bring up game 3 in Boston. The Celtics had you guys, anyways an old wound. So what did Kobe say, and what did Rondo say following those remarks.

Celtics Morning Joe: Bogans may have played his last game in Boston

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 17, 2014 at 5:30 AM Comments comments (3)


Basically, it's time to find a team that wants to save money, and who wants to part with an All-Star type player. It sounds easy, and it's not, but the Celtics either way will deal Bogans. Ainge had this to say about Bogans' contract.


“It’s a unique situation, very unique,” admitted Ainge. “His value to us is he has nonguar...

The second-year big man joined elite company Wednesday night by becoming the first Celtics player since 2007, with a 20-point, 20-rebound game. Sullinger accomplished that big feat by leading the Celtics to an 88-83 victory over the Raptors with game highs of 25 points and 20 boards.This performance would have meant nothing if the Celtics let this ...

Celtics Morning Joe: Green is back in the dog house, benched in the 4th

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 14, 2014 at 5:30 AM Comments comments (4)


Jeff Green, oh Jeff Green. We are back to this again? Off the top of my head, I can't recall the game in which Stevens benched Green, Sully, and I want to say Bradley or Bass? Anyways, Green is right back there again. The Celtics needed someone to score tonight besides Bradley and Bayless. After a 2-point third quarter in Monday night’s 104-92 loss to the Rockets, Jeff Green h...

Celtics Morning Joe: The Celtics are in an odd spot in the city of Boston

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 13, 2014 at 5:25 AM Comments comments (0)



Boston is known for winning championships. Hell, I even used "Title Town" myself to label the team with the most banners in the city of Boston. The Celtics have been contenders since the 07-08 season, with a banner to show to for it, and close to another along the way. The Red Sox captured a third World Series title this past season, in the last 10 years. The Patriots lo...

Celtics Morning Joe: Scoring droughts hurt Celtics on the road

The Celtics missed the mark on the entire trip out West. The Celtics dropped the last three games,after Denver made them look like one of the worst teams in the NBA. Denver beat Boston 129-98, and the Celtics looked like a team tanking. In the final three games against the Clippers, Warriors, and Blazers. The Celtics fought, and they played hard, but the defense was off,...
