    Amos Barshad

    Dear Paul and Kevin, I can't even imagine how you're feeling this morning. The fact that Ainge went ahead and did it last night — blew up the Boston Celtics — is hard enough for a fan like me to stomach. Like any other C's partisan wit...

    Amos Barshad

    The Dunkin' Donuts Turkey Sausage Wake-Up Wraps are tasting a little bitter in Boston this week. Rajon Rondo's out for the season, and out with him, in no particular order: all gorgeous, mind-boggling passes whose lanes could have only been spotted b...

  11. The Wake: Coming to Terms With Ray Allen's Celtics Exit

    Amos Barshad

    On Tuesday night, I sat at a bar booth smugly explaining to a couple of Miami Heat pals that they were deluded. I threw out the terms Boston was offering to re-sign Ray Allen - two years for $12 million, doubling what was then reported to be Miami's ...

  15. The Boston Celtics and the Joys of Low Expectations

    Amos Barshad
