When it comes to college coaches jumping to the NBA, it doesn't happen much. When it comes to college coaches winning in the NBA? It's hard to do. It doesn't mean that it's not a reachable goal. But a task that could be reachable by the right coach. In the current landscape of the NBA. The Heat's coach Erik Spoelstra has broken the mold. He wasn't a former NBA player, bu...Read Full Post »

Paul Pierce will have his number retired, and who knows. Maybe he'll comeback for one season on a cheap deal to walk away from the team, and fans that loved him for over 15 years. Paul has made a mark all over the Celtics record book. Thankfully in 2008 he got the biggest monkey off of his back with a NBA Championship and Finals MVP. So where ...Read Full Post »

- The Celtics shot an amazing 66.7% from three-point land. That won't happen every game, but it's nice to see. AB seems to be finding the range as of late. He struggled with his corner three for awhile, but his confidence, ...

Jeff Green has become the player that many of us had hoped for. It's just seven games, but he seems light years ahead right now. In the past seven games he's averaging 14 points. His defense has been highly visible. He's averaging a shade over one block a game, and these are monster blocks that seem to lead to something big. One part of Green's game that I wish would show up i...Read Full Post »

In Rondo's last ten games he's averaged 8 helpers, but his scoring hasn't changed one bit. His minutes are down a bit, and he's been losing minutes since the bench has been performing out of this world...Read Full Post »

After watching last night's game against the Spurs. I think Gortat sounds pretty good right about now. I don't know what it will take for the Celtics to start rebounding. Is it simply just blocking your man out. Something even youngsters learn in youth hoops. The Celtics simply can't rebound worth a lick. I honestly believe that the Cel...Read Full Post »
