In a very telling interview for Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Doc Rivers took the blame for Ray leaving the Celtics. It seemed throughout the interview that Doc was trying to deflect blame from Rondo by saying that he himself made the decision to have Rondo handle the ball more, although he did admit [...]
Just when I was convinced that Ray Allen was a classless diva, who left Boston for the Celtics’ arch rivals because he was trying to stick it to the fans, he goes and does something classy.
Unlike my hero Lloyd Christmas, Ray didn’t totally redeem himself. But he did help mend some fences.
I probably shouldn’t write about this right after hearing it, just like you shouldn’t go to the supermarket hungry. But I have to get this off my chest, Ray’s decision makes me angry. It wouldn’t have made me angry to find out that Ray left us to go to the Clippers, Grizzlies or Suns instead [...]
In what could become the Ray Allen traveling circus, Allen will visit the 2 sunshine states on a cross country tour of potential suitors. Although Doc Rivers was certain a few days ago that Ray will be coming back to the Celtics, it seems that Ray will be taking advantage of the free agency period [...]
Let me first say, from the reports I am hearing, its almost a done deal that Ray Allen will not sign here. I personally don’t understand this as Ray has a great relationship with the Boston media, ownership and the fans. But apparently multiple “insiders” are saying it is more likely for Ray to be [...]
The Good – The 2nd quarter was the best quarter of basketball that the Celtics (and maybe any team) has played in the playoffs. The Celtics scored 35 points and looked fluid on offense as Rondo was distributing the ball and KG was nailing open J’s. The Heat went into the quarter with a 10 [...]
The Good – Rondo came up with his best stretch of the playoffs so far right after Pierce fouled out with 4 minutes to go. It looked like the offense might have to go through just KG, but Rondo took over the scoring responsibilities by getting 9 points in those final 4 minutes. He hit [...]
I know that Ray is suffering from bad bone spurs in his ankle, Pierce is chasing around Igoudala with a strained MCL that must be more painful than I can imagine, and Bradley’s shoulder has been dislocated so much that its basically an exception now when it doesn’t pop out during a game. And all [...]
The Good – It seems that Michael Pietrus and Ray Allen came out of their shooting slumps as they were each able to hit 2 3-pointers. The Celtics will need them to continue to shoot well if KG continues to get double and triple teamed.
The Bad – The refs were good most of the [...]
The Good – KG played what could be considered his best and most clutch game as a Celtic. Without KG playing the way he did, the Celtics would be playing Game 7 in Atlanta instead of Game 1 against the Sixers on Saturday. KG had a ridiculous stat line that somehow still doesn’t come close [...]
