Jared Sullinger No Longer Out for Season

The Celtics received some very surprising and very good news Friday afternoon.

Does Brad Stevens Deserve Consideration for Coach of the Year?

For over 50 years, the Red Auerbach Trophy has been awarded each season to the NBA coach whom  sportswriters have deemed the most exceptional.

Hey Celtics: Forget Tanking, Go for the 8-Seed

Sean Grande, the Celtics radio play-by-play voice, said it best: “Strange things happen the last game before the All Star break.” And strange things did happen as the Celtics defeated the Eastern Conference leading Atlanta Hawks 89-88.

SoB Satire: Sources Say Rondo Was Recruiting Kobe at Breakfast

The following is the latest in our SoB Satire series. Much of the following isn’t real or confirmed to be true, but we totally wish it was.

The two players did engage […]

Breakfast of Champions: Kobe and Rondo Share Side of Bacon Before Lakers-Celtics

Rajon Rondo Trade Rumors: 5 Teams He Could End Up With

On Friday, Jackie MacMullan said that four-time All-Star Rajon Rondo has told the Celtics that he “wants out” of Boston.
