Danny’s Back
April 20, 2009

The Globe has this update from the morning shoot around:

Celtics president Danny Ainge was at the team’s practice facility in Waltham during the team’s shootaround today and received a warm greeting from the players.

While Ainge was not available for comment, coach Doc Rivers said Ainge might attend Game 2 of the Celtics’ first-round series against the Bulls tonight.

Ainge suffered a minor heart attack last Thursday and wasn’t allowed to watch the Celtics’ Game 1 loss Saturday from his hospital room. He was released from the hospital last night.

Even though he said he wouldn’t speak about KG anymore, Doc had this to say:

While Rivers still seemed doubtful, he did hint there was a slight chance that injured Celtics forward Kevin Garnett could return to action in this postseason. Garnett, however, seemed a long way away as he walked with a noticeable limp at shootaround this morning.

“If he gets healthy, he gets healthy,” Rivers said. “But I don’t see it. If he does, it will be phenomenal. But that’s not anything I’m focused on at all.”

Interesting Debate
April 8, 2009

This was born from a discussion I heard on the radio this morning, and I think it’s a good one.

Michael Jordan, John Stockton, and David Robinson are being enshrined in the basketball Hall of Fame this year.  But is this the best HOF class ever?

In 1980, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, and Jerry Lucas went into the Hall together.  Is that class better than MJ, Stockton and Robinson?

Here’s the list of year-by-year induction classes.   You decide for yourself.

The Last Time We Played Atlanta At Home…
April 3, 2009

(Paul Piece heroics at the 1:30 mark)

That was back on Nov. 12 – Celtics prevailed 103-102.

And KG said this in the postgame:

“Get the ball to Paul Pierce, get the hell out the way, Superman is in the booth.”

Ahh…good times.

Forget Trade, Think Free Agents
February 17, 2009

Via the Herald (glad to see they’re actually covering this story):

“Our best chance to acquire someone might be after the deadline with a player who gets bought out and becomes a free agent,” GM Danny Ainge said this morning. “But right now I have no idea who what players might be available.”

Ainge and the Celts continue to explore the trade market, but as of now there doesn’t seem to be much to indicate they can be a major player. The club would clearly like to get a backup center, but it is not going to simply grab any tall guy.

“We’re looking. We’re always looking,” said Ainge. “But at the same time, I like our team. Even though I don’t think it’s perfect, I like it a lot. And I think Leon (Powe) and Baby (Glen Davis) are both significantly improved from last year and will be even more going into the playoffs. Our need there is not as great.”

Two bigs on the market are the Thunder’s Joe Smith and Chris Wilcox, however they might get traded to New Orleans for Tyson Chandler.

The juiciest trade rumor involves Chris Bosh going to Chicago, Amar’e Stoudemire to Toronto and Ty Thomas, Drew Gooden and picks to Phoenix.

Remember former Celtics small forward Rick Fox – the guy who enjoyed success in L.A. after Rick Pitino shipped him out of town? Turns out his sister is a hot model…


KG Clowns The Clown Suit
February 16, 2009

“Take all this, handkerchief, the lime thong, all that… burn it.”

I know this is Sager’s “thing”… but I can’t disagree with a single thing KG said.

Watch Out For Vince
January 17, 2009

Got this weird feeling (I’m amazed I’m feeling anything with this damn weather – it’s a balmy -7 this morning in God’s country) that Vince Carter might go off on the C’s today. He’s been struggling – 18 points on 5-of-24 shooting in the past two games. But if the Celts play their game, like they did on Wednesday night, it really won’t matter because they can beat anybody with that defensive intensity and offensive rhythm.

The schedule gets a bit tougher next week: Phoenix (Monday), Miami (Wednesday) and Orlando (Thursday). Maybe it’s time for everyone to start taking the Magic seriously, especially after last night’s win in LA. Jameer Nelson, Dwight Howard and Co. dropped 65 points in the second half against the Lakers.

Guess who was sitting in the second row at the Lakers game? Stephon Marbury.

“Jeanie (Buss) and I are really cool,” Marbury said. “She invited me to come to the game. I wanted to come before, too. I want to be around it, I miss it.”

Marbury is living in Los Angeles, working out at a facility in Manhattan Beach and hiking in Runyan Canyon near Hollywood. But there’s also no correlation, Marbury said, between his attendance Friday and the Lakers recent injury woes in the backcourt.

“No, there isn’t a correlation,” he said. “I gotta get out of my deal before I can do anything else.”

Apparently, Marbury is willing to give back $1 million, while the Knicks want $3 million of his $20+ million salary. Get the deal done Steph. We have a seat for you on our bench.

Here’s the latest on the Celtics injuries:


Don’t Deny The Chance…
January 3, 2009


Asked if he’s interested in reuniting in Boston with former Wolves teammates Kevin Garnett, during an appearance on Minnesota’s local TV broadcast of Friday night’s victory over Golden State, Marbury said: “Definitely.”

“When I left here [in 1999], it wasn’t about basketball,” Marbury said. “When I was younger, I had a different disposition as far as how I wanted to live life. Reuniting with Kevin is something that I would love. Going to Boston would be great for basketball and for fans to see Kevin and I reunited, like when we were younger. There is some hope, if I can get out of my contract and they’re interested in me. How can you deny the chance?” (Click here for full story or Watch video clip here)

I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I’m ready for this. We need his scoring and most importantly, playmaking off the bench. We’re all envisioning Steph jacking up bad shots, but the dude can pass. He’s averaging nearly 8 assists per game for his career. He will open up the court for Leon, Big Baby, Eddie and TA.

If Marbury really wants to be a Celtic, he needs to speed up the buyout of his contract. What’s another $5 million? Ease up on the demands and get here. He hasn’t played since the preseason and suited up for just 24 games last year. There will be rust.

ESPN’s Marc Stein lays out some reasons why Marbury and Boston are a fit, while Steve Bulpett says otherwise.
