The only way I can really explain it is, when you have a player like Rondo who does so many great things for this team, you kind of get lackadaisical. [If] you’ve got someone cooking for you and you’re expecting that every day, and all of the sudden they’re not there to do that, it’s up to you to feed yourself. All the sudden, you start making these gourmet dishes and there’s more people coming over the house. You never knew you possessed that until you lost that person.
— Kevin Garnett, foodie
At the last moment, Rondo twisted away from the open layup and fired a behind-the-back bounce pass to Jeff Green, who bricked a contested 18-footer.

The Celtics just couldn’t stop Carmelo Anthony tonight, not even when they tried Mr. Met’s basketball-headed cousin, Señor Baloncesto, as a defensive stopper.  Señor Baloncesto committed two fouls in three scoreless minutes, though he did have some impressive no-look passes.

I’ve seen way worse stuff in the ’80s, and I wasn’t even born in the ’80s.
Jared Sullinger, on the Garnett-Anthony semi-fight. I know security was involved, but what was the risk, really? Carmelo would throw one punch and then backpedal for 100 feet, while Garnett hasn’t mixed it up with a non-Euro since Anthony Peeler in ‘04. If Carmelo were a 5’11” Slovenian point guard, maybe then there’d be something to worry about.

Paul Pierce has gone from Old Man Game to just Old Man. 
It’s hard, especially being a Celtics fan, to see Cap age like this. Someone take him around back and let KG put him out of his misery.

As a general rule, we should be using OMD in more basketball video clips

Red Auerbach explains flopping and why he hates it with the help of Wes Unseld, Paul Silas, Elvin Hayes, Clem Haskins, and Mike Reardon (worst flopper ever).

His plea to end flopping is not directed at the players or even referees. He blames coaches, high school to the pros. “Lets not hurt the game.” And when you compare the flopping in this video to what we see in todays NBA it becomes quite apparent that the league has been long overdue for a course correction.

What a great series.

This marks the 25th time that LeBron James has played a game against these Boston Celtics in the NBA Playoffs, and what with the looming breakup of Boston’s original “Big 3” it is probably the last time.
The score? 12 wins for Boston; 12 wins for LeBron.
Game 7 is not just the tie-breaker in this series. It is THE tie-breaker. All the marbles.

We all felt it on the bench. It seemed like that 3 minutes lasted forever. It was special. I’ll talk about that forever, just knowing being down 20 and these people are still standing up, cheering us on, because they know we just have to win one game.
— Ray Allen on fans chanting “Let’s go Celtics” in the waning moments of Game 6, setting up some interesting side theater heading into an already epic Game 7.
