Glenn “Doc” Rivers: The Father, The Coach and the GM

Earlier this week, we checked up on Paul Pierce’s post-Celtics career. Since then, Pierce’s Wizards team’s season ended after a game 6 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

Will Jae Crowder be on Celtics Next Season?

Upon hearing that the Celtics traded Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks for an assortment of spare parts, I was sufficiently underwhelmed, and thus disappointed in Danny Ainge, who has, to this point, masterfully navigated the post-Big Three landscape.  While Rondo’s value had already significantly depreciated since his ACL tear, we – as Celtics fans […]

Can Danny Ainge Set Off Fireworks this Offseason?

On Thursday, the Celtics Twitter account quoted Danny Ainge saying “I don’t think we’ve ever had cap space in the history of the Celtics, at least since I’ve been here.

Video: Kevin Love Out for Playoffs After Kelly Olynyk Dislocates Shoulder

Cavaliers general manager Daniel Griffin announced Tuesday that it’s highly unlikely that Kevin Love will return to play for the Cavs in the playoffs.

Another Hard-Fought Loss: Celtics Lose 103-95, Go Down 3-0 in Series

Celtics Lose Battle to Cavaliers, 113-100, but Not the War

The Celtics failed to contain the Cleveland Cavaliers’ big three in Sunday’s playoff matinee at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
