Rich Conte has been passionately following the Boston Celtics and the NBA for almost 40 years. That interest began with the classic Game 5 of the 1976 NBA Final, blossomed during the original Big Three era, and persisted through the lean years of the 90s and the "Thanksdad" Gaston era. Rich has been blogging and podcasting through CLNS Radio for the past two years and also hosts a technology podcast; The Tech Life on the Beats and Eats network. You can follow him on Twitter @richconte and find him as a frequent contributor to the Celtics Beat Podcast discussion group on Facebook.
