    Shaugnessy off base

    Today's Shaughnessy story concerning the leadership and maturity of Pierce and Game 1 was off base.  Was he watching the same game we were?  Did he see that James Jones has been assessed a Flagrant 1?  Is the NBA going to allow Ed Malloy to ref another game in the series, I doubt it?  Why bring up something that happened 6 years ago when the Celtics were a desperate team?  Hit first, what does that mean?  Should I be telling my 6-year old son to hit first if you want to win the game?  Shaughnessy, stick to baseball or whatever else you are doing with your time these days....

    He's the worst.  A long career of being wrong and unaccountable.  He has been around forever but has never distinguished himself as a writer.

    I like what Pierce did, I like the fire he showed. He is doing what a captain should. He is leading the way.

    Re: Shaugnessy off base

    His article today just as bad... about the C's being too old and the window closed for them

    All the guy is trying to do is elicit a reaction. HEs the equivilent of a radio shock jock...

    Frankly, we are posting about it so I guess he thinks he got what he was looking for... but not really.

    Only reason I read his column is cause I usually read anything Celtic related but hes really turning into a bore... I skimmed most of it cause I realized it was just another anti-home team piece so the fans would get angry and give him more attention.

    Ill check out his headline but from now on I just may skim the first pgh and bypass the rest,  Its not entertaining when you already know whats in the guys article before you even read it

    I agree. Anyone would do the same when Wade slammed him out of frustration from following Ray Allen.

    Wojarnowski got it wrong also but then he is a well known Boston hater.

    Shaugnessy is one of the most negative sports writers in Boston.  He is usually never right about anything and is usually very gloomy.   He is one that also believes that the trade was a bad idea and will  blame Ainge if the Celtics lose this year.   I heard him say this on comcast one night a couple of weeks ago.

    Well, fellas you all miss JOHNNY MOST at this point.

    Oh my if you guys were alive back in the dynasty, Cowens and the Bird era, you will all fall out of your seat laughing just hearing Johnny in his broadcast.  Win or lose, you'll die laughing at good old jolly JOHNNY!

    Cheers.

    Come on guys, don't be hard on Dan Shaugnessy.

    Shaughnessy is the best friend the Celtics have, cause his stuff is bulletin board material for the players.

    Good catch and good post.

    He struck again today with his "the C's are too old crapola."

    I wrote a blog post about it:  Shaughnessy Mines Old Vein:  Old Angle .

    Re: Shaugnessy off base

    Shaughnessy is a natural born naysayer.  His writing is not up to Globe standards and never has been.  Think of Leigh Montville, Peter Gammons, Ray Fitzgerald, Bob Ryan, and the Shanks contemporaries, Leslie Visser and Michael Holley.  But Shaughnessy has never reached their level of either insight or quality writing.  He's a low-level belly-acher who can't honestly assess basketball - I can't speak to his pro wrestling writing (who cares?) but in the major sports he's far down the writing food chain.  This is but another failed attempt to be relevant.

    Re: Shaugnessy off base

              Dan Shaughnessy is an excellent writer. He's "controversial" because he's not that much of a "homer" but who wants a "homer" all the time? Life wouldn't be very interesting if all the Boston media types were "homers." Dan likes to "stir up" the drink {so to speak} at times. No question. He likes to "get under peoples skin" some times. Whats wrong with that? I like to too. It is one of the great joys in life. Dan is a very good writer. He's got a great sense of humor and his imagery and descriptions are wonderful at times. {I'll never forget his line on Manny Ramirez "setting himself on fire" as a description of how Manny ended up in Boston...............like the monks in Vietnam "setting themselves on fire."} I've been reading the Globe for 40 years and Shaughnessy is easily one of the top 2 or 3 sportswriters to ever have graced the paper. Don't take it all so seriously. The Celtics ARE getting old. Everyone gets old eventually. Get over it.

               Couldn't disagree with you more. I agree that Ray Fitzgerald is the best. Numero uno. No question. Gammons was very good with the Globe {though I didn't like him at all when he became " professorial" with ESPN. Every time he spoke people acted as though they were in church.} Except for Fitzgerald though, I'd put Shaughnessy ahead of any of them. Ryan was good when he was the Celtic beat reporter but I don't know what happened to Bob. I think he's become a bit of a "shill" as he's gotten older. Leigh Montville was good. As for Holley and Vissar and Jackie McMullan and those types? They couldn't hold Shaughnessy's pen.
