Tag Archive: Boston Celtics


ESPN’s Chris Broussard is reporting via their True Hoop blog that the Boston Celtics if offered would be open to trading point guard Rajon Rondo to bring in another scorer alongside Paul Pierce. While scoring is an important factor, cornerstone point guards are hard to find. If you place to the right pieces around him, Rondo can create scoring opportunities for players.

Look at Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, they’ve both had the highest field goal percentage of their career last season both shot 49%. During the last three seasons Pierce’s per game average has increased and some of that has to be accredited to Rondo.

If I was Danny Ainge I would hope and pray Jeff Green can emerge as the 6th man and be the one who can provide some scoring, as I would say scorers are easier to find than franchise point guards.

Turning Up the Heat

4 games to 1. 97 to 87. Big 3 versus big 2 & a half. Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh finally did it. The signing parade and pep rally in early July has finally seemed to pay off for the Miami Heat. Wade, LeBron, and Bosh have been criticized all season for joining forces in Miami. But this was the goal, to beat the Boston Celtics en route to a championship. A task none of them could do on their own. The Heat had their struggles this year and most analysts had next year as the season they would put it all together. However, the Heat have been playing their best basketball so far. LeBron and Wade have finally figured out how to play together and every time Bosh gets his emotions together he proves to be the piece that completes the Heat’s big 3. The Heat may not get much from their bench, but with Wade and LeBron playing like this, there aren’t many teams that can match their scoring prowess. For the Celtics there should be no shame. They were just beat by a better team. They got old, injured and just couldn’t fight the good fight anymore. Kevin Garnett this series showed that at this stage of his career that he can no longer carry a team for multiple games at a time. Paul Pierce didn’t play well this series, Ray Allen had his hands full with Wade and with Rajon Rondo being injured the Celtics just couldn’t muster up enough to overtake the Heat. Fast forwarding the conversation, for Heat haters, they better hope and pray the Bulls take care of the Hawks, because that is their only hope for giving the Heat some competition in their quest for a ring. As for now, let’s hope the Heat don’t break out the ticker tape and fireworks seeing as they’ve only made it to the Eastern Conference Finals.
