GIF: Rajon Rondo Again Shows Off “The Rondo” Fake Behind-The-Back Pass

Rajon Rondo

It’s easy to turn Rajon Rondo‘s game into a senior year thesis. He “contains multitudes,” but at only 6-1, 170, he’s not “large,” though his game does contain “contradictions.” Walt Whitman parallels aside, two plays in last night’s 94-88 Celtics loss to the Blazers show why we feel “so proud to get” near “the meaning of” Rondo.

GIF: Steve Blake Crossover Smokes Evan Turner

Steve Blake, Evan Turner

Perhaps it’s because we used to watch him tear up the ACC for Maryland, but we’re never surprised when Steve Blake shows off skills that belie his neighbor next door exterior. Neither, for that matter, is former teammate Kobe Bryant. Blake showed off his handle and his quickness by abusing Evan Turner on a crossover last night before draining a three-pointer in Portland’s 94-88 win at the Garden. Read More »

GIF: Jeff Green Steals Pass, Goes To Coast-To-Coast For Facial Dunk In Crunch Time

Jeff Green, Marcus Morris

We want much more of this, Jeff Green. With his team trailing the Phoenix Suns by one as the game clocked ticked below a minute, the talented, inconsistent Boston Celtics’ forward jumped the passing lane for a steal, spun to avoid a defender, and finished on the other end with an epic, and-1 facial dunk over the top of Marcus Morris.

Kyrie Irving took over early in the fourth with his Cavs down 19, outpacing the C’s 13-4. He then told LeBron James, “Be aggressive.” Welp, James asked for it, and he proceeded to outscore the entire Celtics team, 10-7, in the game’s last six minutes to help the Cavs come back from that huge fourth quarter deficit and win, 122-121.

LeBron James Says He’s Excited To Play In Boston: “I Love A Little Adversity”

LeBron James

You might think that LeBron James would rather not play on the road against the Boston Celtics. Though The King has had no problems dispatching of Bean Town’s team since 2010, the green and gold faithful are still among sports’ most overtly passionate fans, and no player gets them riled up like LeBron. Instead of being bothered by the animosity he faces at TD Garden, though, James insists he relishes it. Read More »

Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins

Late in the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Rajon Rondo is well on his way to a triple-double. The Boston Celtics maestro has 12 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists, success that was easy to see coming given his energy from the opening tip. Watch Rondo complete a spin-move on the ground then toy with former teammate Kendrick Perkins. Read More »

Paul Pierce “Definitely” Wants To Return To Celtics – As Player Or Otherwise

Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce’s illustrious 15-season tenure with the Boston Celtics came to an end when he signed with the Brooklyn Nets for the 2013-14 season, but it seems The Truth still bleeds green. In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Pierce, now of the Washington Wizards, expressed regret about signing with Brooklyn and described last season as a roller coaster and said he’ll “definitely” by back in Boston some day.

Celtics, adidas Eschew Tradition With “Parquet Pride” Alternate Uniforms

Marcus Smart

The basic font. The subtle detail. The green and white. The history. There may not be a more perfect uniform in all of basketball than the Boston Celtics’ classics, which makes the design of their “Parquet Pride” alternate uniforms all the more vexing. Read More »

Marcus Smart’s Superb Behind-The-Back Dime, HAM Put-back & Ugly Flop

Chandler Parsons, Jae Crowder, Marcus Smart

Boston’s backup point guard and Rajon Rondo-in-training, Marcus Smart, showed why he’s such a valuable player despite a shooting stroke that’s far from elite. During Boston’s hard-fought 118-113 loss to the Mavs last night, Smart was embroiled in a number of plays that showcased what makes him so special; although, he also flopped pretty badly on one of them.
