Ray Allen

  1. Everyone is re-writing draft history with Oden/Durant, except Doc Rivers

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    You hear this all the time around the NBA now, especially the last couple days, “I wanted to pick Kevin Durant over Greg Oden if we had the chance.” It’s crap. At the time almost everybody in the league was going to take Oden. It wasn’t close. True, there was a debate, and sports talk…

  2. Defending Rajon Rondo

    Nov 15, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo’s outlandish point guard-ery this season is even more remarkable considering his obvious offensive flaw; Rondo is five years into his NBA career and yet his jump shot is still weaning. There are other wildly successful NBA players with holes in their games, but in some cases, there are institutional limits to prevent teams…

  3. Game of the night: The running of the Celtics

    Nov 12, 2010, 2:30 AM EDT

    PPierce_celebrate

    Boston is supposed to be the old men. Miami is supposed to be the young bucks unstoppable in transition. Then why is it that that all night long Boston was the team pushing the ball in transition, getting some easy buckets on the run? Miami was slowed, hesitant. It speaks to where these teams are…

  4. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Where the Celtics tried to give one away, but couldn’t

    Nov 4, 2010, 3:55 AM EDT

    Warriors celebrate

    What you missed while figuring out where to buy the Wii Michael Jackson game… Denver giving the improved Dallas defense their first real test was the Game of the Night. Celtics 105, Bucks 102 (OT): Boston got lucky. They were up 6 with 1:22 to play. Boston closes that out. Ray Allen doesn’t miss free…

  5. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  6. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  7. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EDT

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  8. Kevin Garnett admits he's an ass%&@$ (plus talks Heat and losing Game 7)

    Oct 5, 2010, 1:49 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is a private person. Not unreasonable, but on a team that now has Nate Robinson and Shaquille O’Neal, it stands as a stark contrast. The KG we see is the one on the court — focused and intense. He makes no apologies for that. And if you want to use another, more direct…

  9. Kevin Garnett is rested and healthy. Fear the Celtics.

    Sep 25, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett is still the beating heart and key player for the Celtics. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are crucial. Rajon Rondo’s importance grows daily. Kendrick Perkins and the O’Neals matter in the middle. Donkey and Shrek matter off the bench. But last season, Garnett’s health determined the Celtics fate. Which is why this quote…

  10. Brandon Jennings: "I guess in three years, me, Tyreke Evans, and Stephen Curry should team up, too."

    Aug 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings has weighed in to TMZ on all the team-ups going on and it’s about what you’d expect. He says that all these team-ups that are going on (and he lumps Boston in with Miami) are bad because it lowers the competition, that “everyone’s trying to play together instead of competing.” He mentions he’s…

  11. Can Boston start an all future hall of famers lineup?

    Aug 16, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    We said it before — if this were 2000 the Boston Celtics would be an unstoppable force. And yes, I know Rajon Rondo would have been 14 at the time, wouldn’t have mattered with Shaq, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in their primes. But it is a decade later, and the Celtics have…

  12. Lon Babby goes from agent to Phoenix Suns president, and it feels awkward

    Jul 20, 2010, 8:41 AM EDT

    It’s a move that is a little Ari Gold and feels a little awkward. Powerful agent Lon Babby is making a change to the other side of the table and will be announced today as the new president of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns, replacing Steve Kerr. Babby’s clients — including Tim Duncan, Ray…

  13. Celtics Ray Allen on Miami: We're still the better team

    Jul 14, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    The Boston Celtics are the defending Eastern Conference champions. Miami, if you want that crown you are going to have to fight them for it. Ray Allen — who made it official yesterday inking his deal to stay a Celtic — said he and his teammates are ready to show Miami what team basketball looks…

  14. Ray Allen re-signs with the Celtics

    Jul 7, 2010, 10:25 PM EDT

    Free agent guard Ray Allen has decided to sign an extension with the Boston Celtics. The deal will pay Allen $20 million over the next two seasons, and Allen has a player option for the second year of the deal.  Allen taking a dramatic pay cut to play with a team like Cleveland or Chicago…

  15. Bulls will do what they can, and move (sigh) Carlos Boozer and David Lee to the top of their wish list

    Jul 7, 2010, 12:38 PM EDT

    Coming into free agency, the Chicago Bulls seemed to have it all: an up-and-coming point guard, a solid big man, one of the market’s most coveted coaches, decent role-playing talent, and oodles of cap space. The world was theirs, though now there’s a slight problem — it isn’t. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade have both…

  16. Ray Allen is a patient man

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce is back. Doc Rivers is back. Kevin Garnett never left. Ray Allen… is taking his sweet time. As he should. Ken Berger explains over at CBSSports.com. Ray Allen will give the Celtics “every chance of re-signing him,” but has been in contact with the top-tier free agents and wants to wait until they…

  17. Celtics, Pierce finally hammer out details, agree to deal

    Jul 4, 2010, 12:11 AM EDT

    After a few days of haggling over how much it will cost the Celtics to get out of this deal in three years, Boston and Paul Pierce have come to an agreement that keeps the team’s talisman in green. Pierce now has a four-year, $61 million deal agreed to with the Celtics, according to Ken…

  18. Paul Pierce reaches framework of deal to stay in Boston

    Jul 2, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    This was never about leaving Boston, this was always just about business and a deal that would extend into the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Paul Pierce has agreed to the framework of a deal to remain with the Boston Celtics — it’s a four-year deal at about $61 million (according to CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger), although…

  19. Where is Ray Allen shooting next year?

    Jun 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Ray Allen can still shoot the rock. Remember Game 2 of the NBA finals? A record 8 three pointers? That stroke is still pure. But the man can no longer really carry a team for long. He is a piece of the puzzle, a sharp-shooting role player on a contender now. That has value for…

  20. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: Boston closed their eyes and it slipped away

    Jun 18, 2010, 1:51 AM EDT

    It’s a very bitter taste for a team that remembers the sweet taste of champagne. It’s made worse by knowing that they had a 13-point lead in the third quarter. Worse by knowing that this team may never be together in this form again. Worse by knowing that Ray Allen went 3 for 14 in…

  21. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game 7: The time for strategy is past, now is about execution, desire

    Jun 17, 2010, 1:37 PM EDT

    Formal game plans have been drawn up. Film has been broken down and shown to the teams. Xs and Os will be on the greaseboards in the locker rooms. The coaches will go through the motions because they are creatures of routine and structure. But by Game 7 of the NBA finals, it is no…

  22. Tonight the end of an era for Boston

    Jun 17, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    It’s never going to be the same again. This era of the Boston Celtics — The Big Three era — comes to an end tonight. Win or lose. Things will be changing in Boston, evolving. When the Celtics went out and got Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to join Paul Pierce, everyone knew this era…

  23. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: Talking Game 7 with a guy in a Lakers poncho

    Jun 16, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

        The top video, pretty much straight forward. That second video, for those of you who have been watching the post game press conferences on NBA TV and wondering “who is the nutjob in the Lakers poncho?” the answer is Vic the Brick Jacobs. He is a Los Angeles sports talk radio legend, now…

  24. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 6: Blogbook thinks the C's have 'Tremors'

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:29 AM EDT

    A collection of thoughts on Lakers-Celtics Game 6… You’re all familiar with “Tremors“, right? Classic mid-90′s comedy horror film about gigantic sand-worm-like creatures that come up from the ground and suck people into the earth, eating them? Yeah, the Lakers were a lot like that tonight. They overwhelmed Boston from the beginning, and you could…

  25. NBA finals Lakers Celtics Game 5: Rajon Rondo may actually be a weakpoint?

    Jun 13, 2010, 2:26 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo has arguably been the MVP of the playoffs up until the Finals. He has been brilliant, dominant at both ends of the floor. He’s been so good that smart, reasonable people, like myself, lost their minds and actually started wondering if Rondo was the best point guard in the league. And he’s been…
