  1. Garnett, Rondo snub Heat, head to locker room before final buzzer. Classy.

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:11 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    It was an emotional moment. Doc Rivers pulled out his stars Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen in what may have been their final game together. There were hugs and embraces all around on the Celtics bench. Then Rondo and Garnett kept walking, all the way back to the locker room before…

  2. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Chris Bosh becomes the ultimate ‘stretch’ four

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:01 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Tell me you saw it coming. I’ll call you a liar. Chris Bosh, the most maligned of the Big 3 in Miami, the one everyone questions the toughness of, put the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals. Eight-for-10, 19 points, eight rebounds and it doesn’t even begin to describe his performance in the Heat’s 101-88 win…

  3. Video: Emotional exit for Boston’s Big Three from Game 7

    Jun 10, 2012, 1:45 AM EST

    Celtics' Pierce, Garnett and Allen sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    We don’t know what the future will hold, but there’s a good chance that Boston’s Big Three (or Core Four or whatever other nickname you have for them) will not be back together next year. Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett are free agents, and their futures with the team are uncertain. So it was an…

  4. Heat-Celtics Game 7: One quarter of exceptional LeBron enough to send Miami to finals

    Jun 10, 2012, 1:12 AM EST

    Miami Heat's James reacts after a foul is called on Boston Celtics'  Pierce  in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James in Game 7 Saturday was not the LeBron James of Game 6. At least not for the first three quarters. In fact, at the half his performance pretty pedestrian — he and Brandon Bass had matching point totals. But with the game tight in the fourth quarter, LeBron put his head down, barreled…

  5. Report: Austin Rivers has a promise from a lottery team

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    No, the Boston Celtics do not have a lottery pick. But somebody besides dad Doc Rivers is in love with Austin Rivers. At least if you are to believe a report from Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. (One) East scout expects Rivers to be selected in the Nos. 10-20 range, but an NBA source told…

  6. Celtics-Heat Game 7: Chris Bosh will not start

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:13 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra told reporters prior to Game 7 that Chris Bosh would not start but will play in Game 7. Bosh played more minutes in Game 6 than in Game 7, and it’s difficult to see the advantage in feeding Udonis Haslem to the KG lions, but maybe Spoelstra’s “riding the hot hand”…

    Orlando's Stan Van Gundy shouts during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

    Stan Van Gundy’s unfiltered these days. He’s no longer employed by a team, so he’s kind of free to spout off however he likes. He’s not a guy who says things just to say them, like his brother, he has a tremendous amount of respect for players and coaches in the NBA and will want…

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    You want to know the truth about this game, the hidden, ugly, “no one will talk about it because it’s like running a news report on the Disney Channel about how Santa isn’t real” truth? Game 7 between the Heat and the Celtics? All that drama, all the impact on legacies and careers and the…

    You know, sometimes, when it rains, it pours. You’re living the life. You’ve got a custom tricked out motorcycle with Manu Ginobili‘s face on it, the Spurs are the favorites to win the Western Conference Finals and advance with a shot at their fifth title, you’re high on cocaine, the weather in San Antonio is…

  11. Celtics-Heat Game 7 Preview: The disturbing mystery of Dwyane Wade

    Jun 9, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade has not been good. No superstar has struggled more in the Conference Finals than Wade, which is bizarre considering his matchups. Wade’s facing Ray Allen, who is better, but not completely back from bone spurs. He should be eating him alive. But the Celtics’ help defense has been brutal in cutting off Wade’s…

    Jun 9, 2012, 9:52 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Game 7 Saturday night between the Celtics and Heat would honestly be better had the Celtics not won the title. You’d have so many legacies on the line. As it stands, this is the Celtics’ push for a second title, which just isn’t as much of a big deal. It’s not even as important as a…

  13. Thomas Robinson not sold on Anthony Davis like everyone else

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    The hype is everywhere — Anthony Davis is the true only franchise player in this draft. He is the reincarnation of Kevin Garnett (wait, KG is still alive?). He is the best big to come out of college in a decade. He pulled Excalibur out of the stone. He shook hands with bigfoot. Possible No.…

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Iowa State v Kentucky

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is going to be a top 3 pick come June 28. He’s the kind of player coaches love because he is good at just about everything — although the jump shot needs work — and he just outworks everybody. He defends hard, rebounds and is just a team leader by example — he…
