Video: Phil Pressey’s Sneaky Hike Pass To Bass

Phil Pressey

The Celtics’ backup point guard, Phil Pressey, had some pretty big shoes to fill last night in Boston. While the C’s lost with Pressey at the helm, he did have a very Rajon Rondo stat line: nine points, 10 assists in 42 minutes. One of those dimes featured a hike pass between his legs that had to make Rondo proud of the rookie. Read More »

Watch Rajon Rondo & Brandon Bass Do the Two-Step

Rajon Rondo, Brandon Bass

After an MRI in the last third of the season revealed that Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL, surgery on the Celtics’ point guard effectively ended the Celtics era on a down note when they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by the Knicks. But Rondo is recuperating and despite no set timetable on his return to action, he’s healthy enough to two-step with teammate Brandon Bass. Read More »

Dear New York: The Boston Celtics Aren’t Planning On Attending Their Own Funeral

Jeff Green

“You can write the obituary; I’m not.” Even after losing star point guard Rajon Rondo to a torn ACL earlier this season, Doc Rivers wasn’t ready to die. He made sure the Celtics weren’t either. Apparently, the Knicks missed the memo. Read More »

Video: Brandon Bass Is One Of The NBA’s Best Rappers

Brandon Bass

Back in Dime #67, we featured Brandon Bass in the magazine spitting about his game behind the mic. The dude is nice, even if he admitted to us that he doesn’t take this thing too seriously. His video for “Billion Dollar Dreams” took off once it hit YouTube about a year ago, and from the looks of this new video, Bass “could really do this.” Read More »

Major Question Marks Need Answers With The Boston Celtics

Kevin Garnett

It’s hard to fathom how this team can lose by 20 to the Pistons and beat the Thunder a few nights later. The Celtics hope to be, and still have time to become an elite team in the league but they have had an inconsistent start given all the promise their roster showed on paper entering the season.

Chandler Parsons Maims The Knicks; Brooklyn’s Defense Does The Impossible

Chandler Parsons

The Knicks rarely found themselves on the losing end of the turnover battle in their undefeated start to this season. They also never had someone so thoroughly at ease against their defense until Chandler Parsons‘ first half Friday. The Rockets forward upended the Jeremy Lin vs. Knicks/Raymond Felton narrative when he didn’t miss in the first quarter, knocking down his first eight shots en route to 26 points — in the first half. The Rockets torched the Knicks’ defense that had been at or near the top of league statistics for the season’s first two weeks for 131 points in a 28-point win. Read More »
