Marquis Daniels Finally a Celtic

Written by
Marquis DanielsAccording to Boston.com, the Celtics confirmed the signing of Marquis Daniels this evening.After more then a month of anticipation, Marquis Daniels finally finalized a deal with the Boston Celtics this evening for $1.99 Million bi-annual exception.Daniels agent told Boston.com that he had the opportunity to play for more money with other teams but opted to play in Boston because it's the best opportunity for him to win a championship.Daniels agents said, "He played in the finals in Dallas and he wants to have a chance to play for another one. He has a chance to play important minutes in a number of different areas for a team that has a chance to win the championship"I am happy about Daniels coming to Boston. I think he bolster our bench even more.I still believe that we need a legitimate back up point guard though. I hope Danny is still on the hunt.

Is Stephon Marbury Gay? Who cares!

Written by
[caption id="attachment_149" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Starbury examining the man in the mirror."]Starbury examining the man in the mirror.[/caption]Okay, I have been holding out but finally gave in this morning. After weeks of controversy, I finally watched some clips of Stephon Marbury's 24 hour webcast chronicling a day in a basketball outcasts bizarre life.We all knew Steph was unique. I raised the question of whether he attended a course on appeasing the media during his time in Boston. His on court play was not exactly what we expected and his behavior off court wasn't either. I think we expected at least one emotional outburst or off color commentary during Marbury's short stint in Boston as much as we expected at least a glimpse of his former basketball self.Neither occurred.It is obvious that Marbury's pent up aggression (both on and off court) had been saved for his 24 hour chronical into the bizarre daily life of this basketball wacko.Swallowing Vaseline, getting rubbed down by one of his boys, crying in front of his webcam and his shirtless jirations to Barbie Girl were all I needed to see. I must say, though this webcast proved humiliating to the eccentric former all-star, it was kind of comically sad to see his oblivious destruction in such a self deprivating manner.Even in the scenes where Steph was not acting like a total nut job, I still could not follow what he was ranting on about. It is a mystery to me how he has not yet been picked up by one of those celebrity reality TV shows. You know, the ones where celebrities make total idiots out of themselves in an attempt to revive their career.Marbury's bizarre online Odyssey raises some unique questions into this guy's sanity. It's not the first time a basketball player has acted in such fashion. Marbury has not yet reached Dennis Rodman's drag queen status nor has he dated Madonna. Maybe Marbury should dress up like a woman to get some dates, then homophobes like Brendan Haywood would stop worrying about sharing a locker room with him.Honestly, back in the 90's, I didn't care who Rodman dated, where he hung out and what color dress he wore, as long as he stopped pestering my Celtics with 20 rebounds and devastating defense. Fact is, Rodman channelled his completely outrageous and wacko behavior into aggressive and invaluable basketball when on the court.So Steph, I don't care if you are emotionally disturbed, gay, straight, lonely, dancing, or just plain nuts off the court as long as you channel that behavior into amazing play on the court.Yes your off court outbursts may be a distraction now but you proved in 2009 that you can behave when you need to. You just didn't prove you can still play consistently.This is about basketball after all, isn't it?Well, whether Marbury will ever play in the NBA again is yet to be seen. If I were Danny, I would not let a webcast determine anything but the amount of money we pay him in taking another risk on a player that failed to show anything to us last year other then that he can smile, giggle, be polite, and give decent sound bytes to the media.The fact is, we still need a true point guard to back up Rondo. Should it be the internet's latest joke?Check out the low lights of Marbury's webcast and you be the judge of whether you would like to see him with our team's name draped across his chest this season...Marbury's dance off to Barbi GirlMarbury showing is sensitive side. Tears of a clown?Marbury eating VaselineMarbury explaining why he ate VaselineMarbury dissing LeBron James - If you listen past Marbury's ranting, he actually makes a little sense in this one.

Robert Parish: Hail to the Chief

Written by
Number double zero hangs high above the parquet floor at the TD Garden. Representing the glory of the 1980s, it's situated next to the numbers 32 and 33. Each number represents a moment in time faded by years but not forgotten in it's distinction of Celtics lore.[caption id="attachment_141" align="alignleft" width="100" caption="Robert Parish performs his patented baseling spin move."]Robert Parish performs his patented baseling spin move.[/caption]Robert Parish often told the media that he chose double zero in high school because teammates used to refer to him as "double nothing" in response to his lack of talent as a tall, gangly, often uncoordinated player.Robert Parish joined the Boston Celtics in a trade that has been described as one of the most shrued and lopsided deals in NBA history. At the time, the trade was more celebrated for bringing a young rookie, Kevin McHale, to Boston then it was for acquiring an often underrated center from a poor Golden State team.Though Parish's stats had showed improvement every season with Golden State, the Warriors failed to make the playoffs three of the four years Parish had been on the roster. Despite the lack of playoff appearances, Robert had gained valuable experience playing on a Golden State team that had all-star players such as Rick Barry, Jamaal Wilkes and Phil Smith.Parish declared, role player, Clifford Ray to be his biggest influence. Publicly stating that Ray is solely responsible for his longevity in the NBA. Proclaiming that Ray's work ethic was inspiring and his introduction to yoga had been the determining factor in the conditioning that allowed Parish to play until he was 43 years old.As the Warriors continued to lose, Parish's NBA stock continued to rise. He posted a "Chamberlain-like" performance in 1979 against the NY Knicks when he hammered them for 30 points and 32 rebounds.Though Parish had gained a wealth of experience playing with perennial all-stars past their prime in Golden State, it was not until he was traded to the Celtics in 1980 that he first got the taste of playoff glory. In his first season with Boston, replacing Dave Cowens in the starting lineup, Parish averaged 18.9 points per game, 9.5 rebounds per game and shot 54% from the field.It was that season that Cedric Maxwell coined Robert Parish as the "Chief" because of his similarities to the character portrayed in the movie One Flew Over The Cuck0o's Nest. The nickname stuck.In Parish's first season paired with Kevin McHale and Larry Bird, the Celtics won the NBA title elliminating the Houston Rockets in six games.Winning two more championship in 1984 and 1986, the Chief cemented himself as one of the most reliable, consistent a prolific centers in the NBA.Being the third option on a team stacked with all-stars, Parish's talent and value to the championship Celtics teams was often overlooked and taken for granted. It was the high arching mid range jumper at a crucial point in the game or a lightning fast baseline spin move leading to a dunk or a subtle slip of the pick with Larry Bird leading to a roaring dunk that summarized the Chief's worth to the team. Such patented moves often sparked the Boston Garden crowd to chant "Chief - Chief - Chief".I can still hear the echoes as clear as I can hear the faithful chanting "Larrreee - Larrreee" for the legendary forward who played on the same front line.Early on in his career, Parish's quiet and unemotional demeanor was often mistaken for a lack of effort. In the 1987 Eastern Conference finals, Robert showed a rare emotional outburst. After four, hard fought - physical, games the defending champion Celtics found themselves deadlocked with the upstart, bad boy, Pistons.Detroit had showed the tradition steeped Celtics very little respect in their bid to replace them as the Eastern Conference elite powerhouse. With boasting brovado, physical play and taunting trash talking, the Pistons seemed to be figuring out the Celtics championship formula.Bill Laimbeer, in particular, displayed a noticeable distane for the Celtics winning ways.Robert Parish had played through severe pain with two heavily sprain ankles and Laimbeer showed him no sympathy with his, sometimes dirty, physical play.After bumping and grinding, for 4 1/2 games, in a style that would be considered flagrant today Parish had endured enough. In one powerful smack down he knocked Laimbeer to the parquet floor leaving the, self proclained, bad boy in tears. After the dramatic knock down Parish returned to his unemotional demeanor as if nothing had just occured. Robert was ejected from the game but left a moment that, combined with Bird's stealing Isiah's lob pass in the same game, defined an era of Celtics domination over the Pistons from 1985 thru 1987.As the years past by and the Celtics were replaced by that Pistons as the elite Eastern Conference team, Bird and McHale would see injuries diminish their effectiveness. Parish, giving credit to Clifford Ray for his mentoring many years earlier, continued to be consistant and more effective.In 1991, Parish's fifteenth season, Robert made his first appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated. This accolade[caption id="attachment_142" align="alignright" width="112" caption="In March of 1991, SI finally gave Robert Parish some accolades"]In March of 1991, SI finally gave Robert Parish some accolades[/caption]was seen by most media and NBA players as long overdue. It seemed as his younger teammates career's winded down, Parish's was still going strong.Robert continued to play with effectiveness after Bird and McHale's retirement. Though his love for the Boston Celtics never wained, his desire to win a fourth championship seemed to take priority.In 1995, the unthinkable occured as he was signed as a free agent by the Charlotte Hornets. He would play in a limited role for two seasons with the Hornets until being signed by the Chicago Bulls in 1996 at the age of 43.In his final season he would play in 44 games, making three starts for the championship Bulls. That season Robert would win a fourth NBA title making him the lone member of the Celtics fabled "Big Three" to win a fourth championship.Parish had come a long way from his "double nothing" early days in basketball.A career that spanded 21 NBA seasons saw his entrance into a league dominated by John Havlicek, Pete Maravich, Rick Barry, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Julius Erving, Walt Frasier, Earl Monroe and Bob Lanier. He played through an era that saw the coming of age of Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and Partick Ewing.1600 games, 4 championships and 9 all-star appearances later, Parish would leave the game in the hands of all-stars Shaquille O'Neal, Dikembe Mutombo, Alonzo Mourning, Kevin Garnett and Allen Iverson.A career that spanned three generations of NBA domination, Parish is no longer underrated or overshadowed by his teammates.Today,13 years after his retirement, we can continue to proclaim "Hail to the Chief"!
parrish spin moveWe brought back fond memories with rave reviews in our post Larry Bird: The Sudden and Sadening Demise of a Basketball Legend.We ruffled feathers with our controversial claim that Kevin McHale was the NBA's last true big man.Now we are working on the story of one of NBA history's most durable big men. Hall of famer, Robert Parish played for 21 seasons and was the only member of the Original Big Three to win a fourth title. He was a 9 time all-star and voted one of the 50th greatest players in NBA history.Stay tuned...

Celtics Show No Love for Leon

Written by
PoweI totally love Leon!What a scrappy, hard working, undersized big man. To see him go to LeBron's kingdom kills me.I can say that Danny has shown the ability to wait while players recover from injuries. The obvious being KG but he has also waited around has Tony Allen recovered from several injuries too.We couldn't wait for Leon?Truth is, Danny has made it very clear that he wants to win a title THIS SEASON. The time for taking risks with bench players seems to be over.He has bolstered our line-up to, arguably, the greatest depth since 1986.I hate to see Powe cross over to the dark side. If healthy, LeBron and company will benifit from Leon's contagious style of intense play. He has a great low post presence and was our greatest low post force off the bench.Good Luck in your recovery Leon. We wish you (but not the Cavs) the best!

Kevin McHale: The NBA's Last True Big Man

Written by
[caption id="attachment_110" align="alignleft" width="119" caption="In 1989, McHale became the first player in 22 years to finish in the top ten in field goal and free throw percentage in the same season."]In 1989, McHale became the first player in 22 years to finish in the top ten in field goal and free throw percentage in the same season.[/caption]

It seems that members of the media faced with the task of defending McHale during their career's remember Kevin's unguardable array of moves best.

Blessed with a freakish wingspan, McHale possessed five distinctive moves in low post. Kevin often found humor in naming his moves and Tommy Heinsohn, the Celtics and CBS broadcaster during the 80s, made them famous.Heinsohn would almost sound as silly as McHale looked unorthodox performing his art in the post. It would only take one pump fake to get his defender off his feet and McHale would slither thru a double team, on his way to a finger roll laying the ball in the basket. Heinsohn would proclaim with his raspy, cigarette ridden voice, "and there's the slippery eel"!Kevin seemed to ryle Heinsohn in similar fashion to the way a great steal from past Celtics legends ryled up quintessential "homer" and radio broadcaster, Johnny Most.Maybe it was the fact that McHale and Heinsohn were both power forwards. Coincidentally, the same enthusiasm is displayed when Charles Barkley describes McHale as the toughest player Barkley ever had to defend.It's evident that you had to guard McHale to fully appreciate his talent.McHale was selected as the third pick in the 1980 draft, a deal that brought Robert Parish to the Celtics from the Golden State Warriors for the number one pick in that class. Often heralded as the most lopsided trade in NBA history, Red Auerbach in one sneaky move brought together the last two keys that formed the original Big Three in Boston.Robert Parish and Kevin McHale along with second year forward Larry Bird are arguably considered the best front[caption id="attachment_112" align="alignright" width="150" caption="Parish, Bird and McHale are often recognized as the best front line in NBA history."]Parish, Bird and McHale are often recognized as the best front line in NBA history.[/caption]line in NBA history.In his rookie season, McHale became the sixth man, a role made famous by former Celtic, John Havlicek. Averaging 10 points and 4.5 rpg, McHale showed signs of his potential. His sharp wit and laid back demeanor lightened up a roster that included Larry Bird, Robert Parish and Chris Ford.The new look Celtics won their first championship in McHale's rookie season.McHale continued his role as sixth man as his points, rebounds and blocked shot increased every season.In 1984, McHale won his first of two consecutive sixth man awards and his second NBA championship. Ironically, in 1985, McHale finally replaced Cedric Maxwell in the starting line up in route to the NBA Finals.Though the Celtics lost to the Lakers, McHale had become one of the NBA's most unstoppable offensive forces, averaging 21 ppg, 3 apg, 8 rpg and 2 bpg.From 1984 thru 1988, McHale averaged over 21 ppg capped off by a 27 ppg average in 1987. McHale was the perfect scoring compliment to Larry Bird. Heinsohn had moved on from naming McHale's innumerable moves with his back to the basket and began to simply proclaim defending him as the "torture chamber".An appropriate description as McHale rarely missed (or passed) when receiving the ball in the low post. He averaged over 51% from the field in 12 of his 13 seasons. From 1985 thru 1988 he averaged over 59% from the field.McHale's unique ability to draw a foul was even more lethal when combined with his career 80% free throw average - a quality seldom displayed among today's big men.In 1987, Kevin displayed his high threshold for pain as he played the entire post season on a severely fractured foot enroute to another Finals appearance against the LA Lakers.As the 1980's winded down, McHale continued to develop into the Celtics most lethal offensive weapon. Larry Bird and Kevin McHale's two man game was known as one of the leagues simplest, yet unstoppable plays. McHale, often playing on injured ankles, would draw double and triple coverage regularly while consistently completing the play and tallying another assist for Larry Legend.One of the most forgotten aspects of his career, McHale made the All-Defense first or second team six times. Often tasked with guarding the opposing team's best offensive player at every position, McHale's long arms and excellent foot work made defense look simple.It was in the twighlight of his career that McHale showed his unparrelled versitility. Moving back to the bench as the Celtics 6th man, he would serve as Bird and Parish's replacement. In the later days of his career, McHale would play center as often as he played power forward.In 1993, his last season, Kevin McHale had seen his career come full circle. The years of playing on injured and broken feet had finally caught up with him. His point per game average had sunk to his rookie season number of 10 ppg. His minutes had also decreased to the lowest since his rookie year.McHale was quoted as saying "I used to use games as a barometer for how I am feeling. Now, with my lack of playing time, I have to use the gym and weight room."In an era where today's league is dominated by the guard, big men rarely like to play with their back to the basket. Today's big man cannot shoot a free throw with consistent accuracy.It seems the true art of the NBA big man may have retired when McHale's career ended.Highly touted as the best low post player in NBA history, in recent years, Kevin McHale's arsenal of low post moves has been much forgotten and rarely discussed.

It's Official: Big Baby Re-Signed By Celtics Today!

Written by

Celtics Davis Basketball

In a late morning press conference today, the Celtics announced that Glen "Big Baby" Davis has signed a two year, 3 million per year deal.

I never thought Davis would earn mid level money and the economy certainly didn't help him. Teams are not willing to take any risks while revenues are down.

Big Baby's misfortunes undoubtedly worked to our benifit. I am not suprise Davis was retained by the C's. I am, however, very relieved.

Loy's Place reported that Davis will receive a $500k kicker per year for weight loss related bonuses. Davis has already lost 40 pounds since the Celtics exited the playoffs in May.

In other news, Sheldon Williams was also signed to a veteran's minimum contract today.

The Celtics bench is looking very well rounded.

I cannot wait for the season to begin!

Big Baby Set to Re-Sign with the Celtics

Davis is in Boston today to complete his physical and make the deal official.Many teams have flirted with Big Baby expressing an interest. however, to Davis' dissappoinment, mid level dollars were never offered.Glen had publicly hoped he would be retained by the Celtics and that hope will come true in the next forty eight hours though for much less value then his mid level aspirations.The re-signing of Davis has, in many ways, been Boston's rebuttal to LA's re-signing of Lamar Odom. Though Lakers fans will disagree that Odom and Davis are on the same talent level, their is no questioning that both bring a unique and invalueable element to their respective teams.The signing of Davis cements his role as the Celtics seventh man on the roster. It only proves the depth of the revamped Celtics bench when your seventh man just came off a post season where he averaged 15 ppg and 6 rpg filling in for Kevin Garnett.The Celtics bench now looks like this:Rasheed WallaceGlen DavisEddie HouseMarquis Daniels (expect to sign a $1.9 million, bi annual, deal this week)Bill WalkerBrian ScalabrineTony Allen (for now...)As stated in my previous post, the Celtics new look bench has arguably more talent then any other team's second unit.Baring any major injuries, the Celtics look to be the favorites to win the Eastern Conference crown and possibly the NBA title this season.A Lakers/Celtics rematch in June is looking more and more interesting...

New Site Lauching Soon!

Written by
After many months of writing and compiling some compelling content about the NBA and Boston Celtics on The Boston Celtics News Station, we have finally started to see some results.Our traffic has increased to a point where it shows that you, the reader, look forward to new articles and updates from The Boston Celtics News Station. I must say that I am humbled and flattered by the great response this site has received. What started out as a way for me to bitch about the media's coverage of LeBron James winning the MVP has turned into, in many ways, a second job with no pay. Honestly, prior to publishing my first article, Lebron James is the 2009 MVP, Lets Keep History Out of It, I never knew I had any skill in writing. The great response to that article on Facebook and Bleacher Report motivated me to keep writing. I would like to particularly thank NBAtipoff.com, Loysplace.com, Celticsblog.com, Celticstown.com, Celticscircuit.com, Bleacherreport.com, Boston.sportsthenandnow.com for not only inspiring me to write but also for your support, links, mentions and friendship while The Boston Celtics News Station was in it's infancy.With that in mind, I have come to the conclusion that it is time to upgrade a bit.I will be renaming the site simply "North Station Sports". Most people are referring to us as "North Station Sports" already so the transition will (hopefully) be painless. The site will be remodelled upon launch but the upgrades will continue after launch.I have decided to abandon blogger.com and take up residence with wordpress. I have found Wordpress to be more user friendly for me and, more importantly, more reader friendly for you.In addition to the rebooting of our site, I will also be launching a facebook group for the new "North Station Sports". I hope you will seek us out (we will be looking for you) and join our group. Though we are a Celtics based site, as you know, we also feature articles relating to anything NBA related and fans of any team are welcome to join our group. The Boston Celtics News Station already has a Twitter account named Northstation and that will remain the same. To follow us on Twitter click here. Our new wordpress blog will feature an email subscription, better graphics, more user friendly layout, and an all-together more professional look.Please check in frequently as I will be posting our new site url in the next day or so.I hope you will continue to follow our site with the loyalty that you have shown in the past. We promise "North Station Sports" will still produce the same quality article in our new location.Thanks for you loyalty and friendship!

Bill Walton: The Celtics Savior of 1986

Written by
By 1985, Bill Walton had already won an NBA title and Finals MVP with the Portland Trailblazers and spent the next several years fighting ankle injuries that would keep him off the court more then in uniform. The injury plagued Walton was 33 years old and never played more than sixty seven games in an NBA season. Most NBA experts considered Bill Walton's career to be over. By 1985, Bill Walton had already won an NBA title and Finals MVP with the Portland Trailblazers and spent the next several years fighting ankle injuries that would keep him off the court more then in uniform. The injury plagued Walton was 33 years old and never played more than sixty seven games in an NBA season. Most NBA experts considered Bill Walton's career to be over. Larry Bird and Red Auerbach felt differently. Walton had put the word out to the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics that he was available. Pitching himself as the leagues ideal 6th man, and back-up for Kareem or Parish, Walton waited to hear offers from both teams. Fans shadowed the opinion of Lakers GM Jerry West who, after reading a doctor's report, questioned the health and playing ability of the former Finals MVP. Red Auerbach made a conference call (the old fashioned kind) to Walton from his office in Boston. Seated by Larry Bird, Never looking at the doctor's report, Auerbach asked Walton if his body was able to compete for majority of the season. Walton, always the optimist, felt he could. Auerbach asked Bird's opinion. Bird said "if Walton is healthy enough to play, it's good enough for him". Auerbach's mind was made up. Another former Finals MVP, Cedric Maxwell, would be traded to the Clippers for the rights to Bill Walton. The California hippie was off to Boston to play for LA's biggest rival. Though, in the media, questions mounted regarding Walton's effectiveness and durability through an 82 game season, Walton was well received on opening night. Receiving a 5 minute standing ovation Walton's was overwhelmed and never looked back. He would play 80 games, his highest on court appearance in the NBA. Walton was also named the NBA's sixth man of the year, a Celtics tradition. Walton was rejuvenated averaging 8 ppg and 7 rpg in 20 minutes per game. Walton's best contributions to the Celtics 16th championship was his work ethic, team camaraderie, basketball IQ - attributes that can never be penned onto stat sheets. Unfortunately, after helping the Celtics steamroll thru the NBA in 1986, his last two years with the team had come full circle as ankle injuries forced him out of 154 of the final 162 games of his career. Celtics fans had one thing in mind when they embraced the arrival of Walton in 1986. Assist us in winning a title NOW and we will never forget you. Though Walton's number 5 is not hanging in the rafters at the TD Garden, his number is eternally retired in the hearts of fans. We will always remember him as a Boston Celtic. In 2009, another wile veteran has been accepted into the Celtics family at the twilight of his all-star career. Though not plagued by debilitating injuries, similar questions surround his opening night... Rasheed Wallace will be recieved by the fans at the Garden that will be reminiscent of the fall night in 1985. We can only expect of him what that Red head contributed 22 years ago - his heart.

Celtics Sign Former Duke Star

Written by
Boston.com reported today that Boston has signed power forward, Sheldon Williams. At 6'9, the Duke all-time leader in rebounds and blocked shots will add length and strength to a reserve front line consisting of the pending Glen Davis and center/forward Rasheed Wallace.According to Boston.com, Williams will be signed to a one year, veteran's minimum ($1.306 million) deal.I like the idea of signing the former Duke star. Though he has shown little in the pros, we know he has the ability to make an impact based upon his career with the Blue Devil's.Let's face it, anything is an upgrade from Mikki Moore who proved to be a disappointing stand in for 2008, late season addition, P.J. Brown.Danny Ainge, who at this point last year, had made no deals to bring depth and had already lost James Posey, has done a solid job of revamping the C's bench. In other news, Redsarmy is featuring a rare interview by Glen Davis given to WEEI.
