2009 Celtics Summer League Team Preview

The Celtics announced their Orlando Summer League roster a few days ago. The roster contains four players we’re all familiar with: Gabe Pruitt, Bill Walker, J.R. Giddens and newly drafted rookie Lester Hudson. The C’s should get a good look at Hudson as he will be going up against pretty tough competition at either guard […]

Celtics 2009 NBA Draft Preview

Two years ago around this time the Boston Celtics faced a tough decision. Would it be Corey Brewer or Yi Jianlian? You remember what I’m talking about, right?

Celtics Player Reviews: J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker

Let’s begin the Celtics season reviews with the rookie pair that could someday leave their mark on the NBA and hopefully on the Celtics. J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker were the top two draft picks for the Celtics before last season. Giddens was the Celtics’ first round pick and Walker was acquired from a trade with Washington […]

Injury-Ravaged Celtics Need to Pace Healthy Stars

The Celtics are in rough shape now that their huge injury list includes bench players (Tony Allen, Brian Scalabrine, and Glen Davis) and starters (Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo). With the injuries, the team needs to slow down its pace, even in the heat of the race for home court in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Celtics have already guaranteed themselves […]

The Celtics continued their resurgence Monday night against the Phoenix Suns, winning 104-87 in Boston for their fifth straight victory.

How Will the Celtics Replace James Posey?

This edition of the Celtics Four-Point Play will be extended over a few days up to the C’s home opener against the Cavaliers next Tuesday. Overall, I’ll pose four questions the Celtics face as they head into the brand new 2008-09 season. As you all may know, James Posey was very good as the Celtics’ […]

Celtics Player Previews: The Bench Forwards

Bill Walker Impresses in Celtics Loss

The Celtics opened up their preseason Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers at UMass Amherst. After a strong first half, the Celts were outrun by the athletic Sixers in the second half en route to a 98-92 loss. With the starters playing limited minutes, the crowd at Mullins Arena had a chance to see the […]

Celtics GM Review: Danny Ainge

There was a lot of speculation as to whether Danny Ainge would have his job much longer as the general manager of the Celtics after the terrible results of the 06-07 season. Nothing had seemed to be going right at all in Ainge’s career as GM. None of the draft picks or players acquired in […]

Celtics Four-Point Play 7-2

In this edition of the Celtics Four-Point Play, I’ll look at the possibility of re-signing James Posey, the Celtics’ interest in Corey Maggette, the potential future of J.R. Giddens, and the surgeries of Kendrick Perkins and Bill Walker. 1. James Posey is now an unrestricted free agent and he may sign with any team. I […]

So, Who is J.R. Giddens Anyway?

During the 2007 NBA Draft, Danny Ainge began his magical offseason and before the night was done, the Celtics had acquired Ray Allen and Glen ‘Big Baby’ Davis for Jeff Green, Delonte West, and Wally Szczerbiak. That, as everyone now knows, led to the acquisition of Kevin Garnett and the eventual NBA Champion rolling rally […]
