Preparing for Another Year of Rebuilding for the Celtics

Over the last three days of NBA free agency mayhem, the Celtics seemed strangely under the radar. Throughout the draft process and leading up to free agency, what always gave me, and others, hope was that “Ainge has a master plan.” Well, I am starting to think that plan will look a little too similar […]

Celtics Sign Amir Johnson to 2-Year, $24 Million Deal

The Boston Celtics signed Amir Johnson to a 2-year, $24 million deal on Wednesday. Last season he spent his sixth season with the Toronto Raptors, in which he averaged 9.3 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He helped the Raptors earn the Atlantic division championship last season and the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. […]

In Ainge We Trust… I Guess?

I wrote before the draft that having a pick outside the lottery meant that Thursday night didn’t really matter unless Celtics GM Danny Ainge pulled off something crazy. Well, it appears that he tried, failed and got a consolation prize of a bunch of limited but somewhat talented pieces to add to his roster of […]

Celtics Draft Terry Rozier, R.J. Hunter, Jordan Mickey; Make No Trade

The long wait for the 16th pick is over and the Celtics have selected Terry Rozier, guard, University of Louisville.

What are Viable Options for the Celtics on Draft Night?

With the 2015 NBA Draft less than 48 hours away, it appears that draft night is going to be very important for the Celtics once again.

Celtics Propose Blockbuster Trade to 76ers

According to Broderick Turner of the L.A. Times, the Boston Celtics have offered Marcus Smart, their number 16 and 28th picks in the first round, to the Philadelphia 76ers for Nerlens Noel and the third overall pick in Thursday’s annual draft. The 76ers however, decided to decline their offer. The 76ers already have five picks […]

Why This Year’s NBA Draft Doesn’t Really Matter

A lot has been made of the difficult time the Celtics have had trying to workout prospects. Some players, such as Wisconsin’s Sam Dekker have pulled out of their workouts and it is unclear why. Whether they think the 16th spot is lower than they would want to go or its lower than they think they should […]

Lebron Falls Short as Warriors End 40 Year NBA Title Drought

Counting down to the tipoff of Game 6 of the NBA Finals, guest analyst Dwyane Wade brought up Game 6 of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals, in which Lebron James nearly singlehandedly fended off the Boston Celtics and elimination (and his 2008 demons) at the TD Garden, effectively closing the Big Three title window for […]

Talking Myself Into DeMarre Carroll as a Celtics Target

I have been resistant to buy into DeMarre Carroll as much as some. But there is quite a bit of buzz about the Atlanta Hawks wing (no pun intended) coming to Boston and also a lot of buzz about him receiving the most overpriced contract of this offseason. It’s true that paying $12 million per […]

Boston Sports State of the Union Address

The Red Sox are quickly becoming the laughing stock of Major League Baseball with one of the highest payrolls in the league and a collection of underperforming players. The only bright spot on the […]

If Celtics Are Willing to Trade Up in Draft, Must Target Justise

With the draft less than three weeks away, the rumor mill has been abuzz with talk of the Celtics potentially trading up in the draft for a lottery pick. Outside of the top three picks, which are almost certainly Karl Anthony-Towns, Jahlil Okafor, and D’Angelo Russell, the rest of the draft remains fairly uncertain and offers […]

Hello, my name is Nick, and I am a Celtics fan rooting for Lebron James in the 2015 NBA Finals. If there were an AA meeting for fans of other non-Warriors teams who find themselves uncontrollably pulling for the Lebrons, I would be the first person introducing myself. As a Celtics fan – one who […]

How to Build the Next Celtics Dynasty

In the 21st century, Boston is a city that has become accustom to winning. Since 2000, its major sports teams (Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins) have combined to win nine championships. The Celtics though, despite being the one of the two most accomplished and winningest NBA teams in history, have only contributed one. On […]

The Future Looks Bright Coming off of an unexpected playoff appearance, the Celtics look like a team on the rise in the Eastern Conference.
