I am happy for the Big Three, aka GPA, especially Ray Allen seated below with his son.

I am also happy for Leon Powe, below holding up his son. His story is truly amazing, growing up poor, sometimes homeless.

One thing I really like about the Big Three is that they genuinely seem to like each other. They support each other and are committed to winning together as a team. This photo illustrates that.

After nearly 20 years of mediocrity, the Celtics are 29-4 (through Jan. 10) and flying high again, due largely to the play of the new Big Three -- Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce.

Here are a few more. Notice something similar in each one?

The Celtics have the league's best overall record and also have the best record in back-to-back games.

Celtics stars Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen have developed chemistry off the court even as they are getting used to each other on it.

If you noticed the Asian dude behind the big three in every photo you win the prize! That dude is Bryan Doo, the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Boston Celtics. We both attended Highrock Church and even went on a short-term missions trip together. I always enjoy seeing him behind the bench whenever I watch a Celtics game. In yesterday’s post game celebrations I saw Bryan talking with Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. Congratulations to Bryan as well!

Every time I see Bryan in a game I kinda feel like I’m there too. Kinda corny, but it’s cool how he was involved with this historic team. What a great job. I’ve also seen him on local sports stations when they do stories or profiles on Celtics training and such.

Boston is pretty psyched right now. This really is the Golden Age for sports in this city.
