Shaq Attack Hits Hub

Who'd have thunk it? The ultimate "big" man of round-ball, Shaquille O'Neill, is now a Boston Celtic. His role on the '10-'11 squad will be intriguing, but we will take 20-25 minutes, double-digit scoring and rejection defense.

Free throws? Uh, let's not talk free throws right now.

Welcome, big guy!

Redemption Road

The 17-time champion Celtics are headed back to the NBA Finals for the 21st time in team history. Holding off a sluggish Magic squad in Game 6, the Celtics reasserted their defensive prowess and got an MVP-type performance from Captain Paul Pierce (31 points). Nate Robinson came off the bench for an injured Rondo to light up the night with 12 points at key junctures of the game.

On to a likely match-up with their perennial nemesis—the LA Lakers—the Cs look like the (reasonably) healthy and confident squad that captured banner seventeen in 2008.

Celts Great Jo-Jo White Speaks At Meeting Today

Rasheed Indeed!

New Celtic Rasheed Wallace was pretty much the whole show, hitting 6 of 8 three-pointers to tally 20 points in a 105-74 blowout of his hometown Sixers.

Once again the undefeated Celtics (5-0) got double-digit performances from 5 players: the aforementioned Wallace; Paul Pierce (21); Eddie House (12); Sheldon Williams (11) and Rajon Rondo (11).

This is starting to look like a legitimate mid- to high-sixty win team. Mercy!

Chicago (No) Hope

OK, this is getting fun. After the Celtics thrid straight dismantling of an NBA foe (118-90 over the hapless Bulls), maybe we can schedule more challenging games against Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv or Regal FC Barcelona. Yikes. This time, five C's hit double figures in points—Pierce (22), House (22), Allen (20), Garnett (16) and Shelden Williams (10).

Oh, and did we mention Rajon Rondo's line? How about 16 assists in just 30 minutes. Can we start the playoffs now?
