Ciao Bella! Celtics Open Pre-Season with win in Milan, Italy

The Celtics began their pre-season, exhibition action in Milan, Italy, beating EA7 Emporio Armani Milano 124-91. Now, they will fly to Madrid, Spain for a tilt on Thursday, October 6th at the RealMadreid Barclay’s Center.

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 […]

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. The big questions that will continue to lure over the C’s until the draft is underway is what should the Celts do on draft night? During last year’s draft, there was […]

Boston Sports State of the Union Address

Dear Beloved Boston Sports Fans, In case you haven’t noticed, the Boston sports teams are all in a state of disarray. 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 […]

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. Until today, the last two pieces of that 2008 Championship Celtics team remaining in the playoffs were Doc Rivers and Glen Davis.  While Glen Davis has undeniably struggled since joining the Los […]

Celtics to Pursue Trade for Kings Center DeMarcus Cousins, Report Says

While this won’t come as a huge surprise, the Celtics are planning to pursue a trade for Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Cousins has some maturity issues, but would give the Celtics something they desperately need — size and a defensive presence in the middle.

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. This is of course after Celtics center Kelly Olynyk pulled Love’s arm out of its socket during Game 4 on Sunday. After the game, Love called Olynyk’s play intentional and bush […]

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

We wanted the playoffs, and well, we got ’em.  The Celtics once again lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game that – at times – felt like they could have won.  But now, it is time to accept that the Celtics are severely out-sized and inevitably outmatched in a series we should never have convinced ourselves […]

One Eyed Kelly Olynyk KO’s Pacers

Shavlik Randolph hasn’t had much of an impact on the Celtics at all this year. He only gets in during blow outs or extreme foul trouble. He is essentially a paid practice player, not a bad gig. However, tonight maybe Randolph was a little mad at Kelly Olynyk and took it out on the young […]

Video: Marcus Smart Uppercuts Matt Bonner in Low Blow

Celtics point guard Marcus Smart was ejected from Friday night’s game against the Spurs after he gave Matt Bonner a low-blow uppercut: Marcus Smart gets a flagrant 2 https://t.co/iQR72VnnpM — Brian Robb (@CelticsHub) March 21, 2015 Interesting.

The Other Trade: Prince Shipped Back to Detroit to Make Room for Young

When Danny Ainge landed Isaiah Thomas in a trade with the Phoenix Suns, you would think that would be enough for a deadline day’s work. Transforming an expiring contract that you don’t plan on bringing back and a first round pick that will fall in the mid to late 20s into a point scoring, pick […]

The Celtics or the Bruins? Who’s the Bigger Ticket at the Garden?

I’m not talking about the price of the ticket because both teams, along with every team in our great snowy city, charge too much for their tickets, but which of these teams is the more exciting one right now? At the beginning of the season it was easy to say the more exciting team throughout […]

What the Celtics Should Do at the Trade Deadline

The NBA trade deadline is less than 48 hours away, and the question that now looms over the Boston Celtics is what should they do at the deadline? The Celts roster as it stands now has good depth. The C’s bench is one of the best in the entire NBA, as they are ranked No.7 in […]

NBA All-Star Game Starters Announced, Illustrate Flawed Selection Process

Last Thursday, the NBA announced the starters for this year’s NBA All-Star game, as per the popular vote of the fans.  While the majority of this year’s selections seem fair, two of the most polarizing of choices, Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant, are members of big-market yet borderline-abysmal teams. Social media and members of the NBA […]

Danny the Magician: Ainge Making Celtics Disappear in Flurry of Trades

And then there was one. That’s how many players Danny Ainge will have kept in spite of all his flurry of in-season trades. (With plenty left to come, I’m sure.) One player out of five trades, including four in one week. Just call him Danny the Magician. He makes newly acquired Celtics just…disappear.
