Irish Coffee: Reggaeton, President Obama & the Celtics 03.09.11 at 11:40 am ET
By   |  4 Comments

Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee …

I’ve got to tip my hat to Celtics Hub for reminding everybody that new Celtics backup point guard Carlos Arroyo is also a Reggaeton (think Akon, in Spanish) star in his native country of Puerto Rico. He’s released two singles: “Oculto Secreto” and the more popular “Se Va Conmigo” with a dude named Yomo.

Thanks to AllTheLyrics.com, we now have a (very) loose translation of the “Se Va Conmigo” (“Go Away With Me”) remix performed with Ivy Queen, and it’s obviously pretty amazing …

To me, it’s enough to look for an affair.
I told you, I go with you.
If you tell me, I continue,
And without telling me, I follow you.
If you know it, I’m a hired killer.
I catch you when you get in my area.

What you like is that I have fury,
That I speak to you clearly
And that I don’t go on with you with sweet talk.
I don’t mind nothing, I leave.
Speaking clearly, you know well what I give.

That’s enough games, and bring me down the ego.
I’m not made of ice, and you like that.
We go without detour that I’m shrewder
Pa, pa, papi.

What’s what?
Do you want it in English or in Portuguese?
He’s looking for that I catch him, he asks it.
I warn him, and he continues.

Truly, she has me with the slow note.
She don’t mind nothing, she leaves.
She leaves with me without fear of to fail,
Because her wish is that I put her to sweat.
She excels with her skirt.

Mini mami, I know you are a hired killer.
Whatever I say, I know you die in my area.
Nice, sexy, exotic.

Obviously, my favorite parts are, “Her wish is that I put her to sweat,” and, “She excels with her skirt.” And, yes, I’m going to use those lines all the time now.

Irish Coffee: Ray Allen ‘really isn’t Jesus’ 01.06.11 at 12:37 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee …

Considering Ray Allen has shot 89.4 percent from the free-throw line in his career, he’ll miss two straight about once every 100 times he goes to the charity stripe.

And that’s exactly what happened with eight seconds left as the Celtics clung to a 105-103 lead against the Spurs — owners of the NBA‘s best record. Thankfully, for Allen and the C’s, Paul Pierce blocked Manu Ginobili‘s last-second 24-footer to preserve the victory.

“I would’ve put my whole salary that he made at least one,” said Glen “Big Baby” Davis. “I would’ve been in trouble. It’s Ray Allen. It just goes to show you he’s really not Jesus. You know? I swear to God … if he misses, I’m like, ‘That must be Ray Allen.’ When he makes it, every time I think it’s Jesus Shuttlesworth. I swear. I’m surprised when he misses.”

Obviously, the mention of Jesus was a reference to Allen’s character in the film “He Got Game”. But even Jesus Shuttlesworth couldn’t make 13-of-16 shots from the field, as Allen did Wednesday night.

“I was pretty confident in Ray going to the line, but he’s human,” added Rajon Rondo. “He did almost everything else perfect today, so you can fault him. The bottom line is we got the win.”

Allen is shooting 50.1 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from 3-point range — both career highs for a single season. That’s saying something, considering Allen has been considered one of the league’s best shooters since entering the NBA in 1996.

“Ray needs to work on his shooting a bit,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich joked. “He only hit 13 out of 16. If it was practice and you did pindowns and you came off of that, I don’t know if anyone in the league would hit 13 out of 16. He does it in a game.”

Irish Coffee: Big Baby’s all grown up 10.21.10 at 11:03 am ET

Wake up with the Celtics and your daily dose of Irish Coffee …

BOSTON — At this time last preseason, Glen Davis watched in street clothes from the bench with a broken hand he suffered when he took a swing at a friend around 4 a.m. one night.

Big Baby’s done a lot of growing up since then.

“You make a mistake, and it helps you grow,” Davis said after last night’s Celtics win over the Nets in the preseason finale. “Situations happen. … I look at it, and I just look back on how young I was at that time. I’ve had a lot of things happen in my life so far.”

At the start of the preseason, Davis questioned his role, and coach Doc Rivers fired back: “I think Big Baby’s living up to his nickname again.” There was a here-we-go-again feel to it.

But in just three short weeks, Davis has grown into the leader of the NBA‘s best second unit, thanks in large part to Danny Ainge defining his role as,well, an indefinable one.

“It’s how you look at it,” said Davis. “I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t have a role,’ but I knew my role. It was just confusing. I know I’m a versatile player. I can do multiple things. I can play the 5, and I can play the 4.”

Rivers has also let Davis define his own role on the court.

“One thing Doc’s letting me do this year is allowing me to be more creative on my own. So far, in the preseason, I’m being a post threat, and I’m shooting an outside jumper. I’m just glad and fortunate that I know my role now. I know exactly what I can do for this team, and I’m going to do it the best I can.”

BIG BABY: SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR?

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better second unit in the NBA than Nate Robinson, Delonte West, Marquis Daniels, Big Baby and Jermaine O’Neal. So, why shouldn’t that unit produce the league’s Sixth Man of the Year?

Marc Spears Discusses Davis and Rondo on D&H 10/27 10.27.09 at 5:08 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

Yahoo! Sports NBA columnist Marc Spears appeared on the Dale & Holley Show this afternoon to talk about the Celtics season as well as the issues concerning Glen Davis’ injury and Rajon Rondo‘s impending 2010 free agency.

Click here to hear the full audio and read below for highlights.

Do you hear anything on this [Glen Davis injury] story?

Nothing that you guys probably haven’t heard already; just that it was over something stupid. And that more details will come today, but that he is going to be out for a long time. Not season ending, but a long time. A long time, are we talking about one month? Two months? Somebody tells me a long time, I’m thinking three to four.

Wyc [Grousbeck] has said today that a suspension is very likely. Why would the Celtics suspend him?

Because this is in-season, they’re ready to go. They have this to turn down maybe bringing in some other big men or the big fellow they just cut [Mike Sweetney] they probably they could have kept him. I am sure they don’t want to cut [Lester] Hudson. This is a non-basketball injury and it’s a silly one. So they are going to go down hard on him. I’ll tell you what, Big Baby is one of the nicest people you will meet in the world and this is very, very shocking to me. I know at times things could happen that may not be the most mature things in the world as we saw right here. This is a surprise, this really is a surprise. I just say maybe wait until the entire details come out and see what happens why this guy threatened him like this. Hopefully he didn’t make any threats to his girlfriend or anything which caused the situation. I am sure there is an interesting story behind it but I heard it was a stupid story.

Source: Davis Out 6-8 Weeks Following Surgery at 2:49 pm ET
By   |  No Comments

According to an NBA source, Celtics forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis underwent successful surgery on his right hand on Tuesday, and will now be out for six to eight weeks. Davis reportedly suffered the injury in a fight with a former college teammate. Davis re-signed with the Celtics this offseason on a two-year deal worth approximately $6 million deal.

In an interview with The Big Show on Tuesday afternoon, Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck confirmed that Davis suffered a broken thumb. Though he did not give a specific timetable for the forward’s return, he did suggest that such injuries “are usually not season-threatening. … It’s a broken thumb. I don’t think it’s going to be that long.”

Grousbeck did say that the team expected to “suspend or fine” Davis. Noting that the 23-year-old will be out for some time, Grousbeck suggested that the Celtics planned to sit down with the player and determine an appropriate punishment.

“I think we’re going to ask him to chip in,” said Grousbeck.
