Why We’re Rooting For Losses: Inside The Mind Of A Celtics Fan

Jeff Green

Before last night’s win over the Jazz, the Celtics had started out 0-4. In a normal year, that would be extremely disappointing. But under the circumstances, is it such a bad thing?

On one hand, there is talent on the roster and a promising new coach. On the other, that talent is extremely young and their superstar is still recuperating from a torn ACL.

20 Craziest Fights In NBA History

fights

Gone are the days where two NBA teams who straight-up didn’t like each other could get together and elevate their rivalry with a brawl. Good riddance. Those who enjoy watching titans inflict pain on each other can find plenty of other vices to quench their thirst for violence. In fact, there are entire weekends devoted to it, with the college and professional rankings of football dedicated to humans crashing into each other and hoping they hurt their opponent as much as they want to hurt them.

The NBA’s 30 Best Second-Round Draft Picks Ever

Gilbert Arenas

Being a second-round pick in the NBA comes with no cheering, not much love, and no glory. Most times when someone is drafted in the second round, it’s the first time the NBA world is hearing their names. There’s a much higher percentage to become a player that records DNPs on a nightly basis than someone who becomes a role player, solid contributor, or even a star in the second round. Read More »

Rajon Rondo, Joan Rivers

After hearing that Derrick Rose is 100 percent, though he can do “almost everything,” some other banged up players are releasing timetables for their return. One player in particular will be taking on a lot of new responsibilities after the departure of his star teammates to Brooklyn.

Larry Johnson

You might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at UNLV. Hell, you might be too young to remember Larry Johnson at Charlotte. But back in the day, Johnson was not only one of the best players in the nation for one of the best teams in NCAA history, he was also one of the most hated. Read More »

Robert Parish On Paul Pierce Playing For the Nets: “It’s Going To Be Awkward”

Robert Parish in '91

In 1994, Robert Parish had been a veteran of 14 seasons with the Boston Celtics during which time they had won three championships. But as a free agent at the ripe age of 40, Parish elected to sign with the Charlotte Hornets instead of returning to a Celtics team without many of his former star teammates. So Parish knows exactly how Paul Pierce will feel the first time he dons a uniform other than the white and green. Read More »

It’s Dead: Clippers Shut Down Massive Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett Trade With Celtics

Kevin Garnett

When it came down to it, it looks like Danny Ainge and the Celtics just wanted too much. Somehow, through this whole back and forth with the Clippers in trade talks to send Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett to the Clippers for a package of DeAndre Jordan and other assets, the Celtics were behaving like they had all the leverage in the negotiations. That appears to have been Boston’s undoing. Read More »
