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 […]

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 […]

Hello, My Name is Nick, and I am a Celtics Fan Rooting for Lebron James

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 […]

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 […]

Marcus Smart’s Progression Through his Rookie Season Impressive

The Boston Celtics kicked off their first round matchup in the NBA Playoffs with a 113-100 road loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday afternoon. Despite the C’s being a part of the playoffs, this is a good time to take a look at how Celtics rookie Marcus Smart progressed this season. If you take a […]

Date with Destiny: Celtics Set to Face Lebron, Cavs in Return to Playoffs

Some Celtics fans were probably hoping for the team to lose its last two games and avoid the Cleveland Cavaliers and their league best record 34-9 over the last three months in Round One. A first round matchup against the struggling and banged up Atlanta Hawks certainly seemed preferable, right? Well, destiny took the decision out […]

Who Would You Rather See the Celtics Play in the Playoffs?

After their win against the Pistons, the Celtics keep inching towards a playoff spot. The Green currently sit in seventh place in the East with four games to go, by virtue of holding the tiebreaker over Brooklyn. Their magic number to clinch a playoff spot is four (any combination of Boston wins and Indiana/Miami losses). […]

Celtics Blow another Lead, Lose to Cavaliers 122-121

  After Friday night’s loss, the Celtics have scored the second most points in the league while allowing opponents to score the second most points as well. Additionally, the Celtics have been outscored by opponents  72-41 in the fourth quarter of the last two games. Keep in mind that the C’s had sizable leads in both of these games. These […]

Rondo Passes Pierce for Fourth on Celtics’ All-Time Assists List

Sure, Rajon Rondo may be a point guard, and Paul Pierce a small forward, but it was still somewhat startling to learn on tonight’s broadcast that Rondo had already surpassed the longtime Celtics captain on the franchise’s all-time assists list. Rondo’s first assist of the game broke a tie with Pierce and moved him into […]

Celtics, Nets to Play Experimental 44 Minute Game in NBA Preseason

There’s a Neil Young song called “My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)” and another titled “Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black).” This is what this experimental 44 minute preseason game between the Boston Celtics and the Brooklyn Nets feels like: an NBA decree completely out of the blue as the Celtics venture […]

Celtics Should Continue Patient Approach to Rebuilding Process

The Boston Celtics will officially lose out on the services of superstar power forward Kevin Love on August 23. Once the calendar turns to that date, the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to send the first overall pick of the 2014 Draft, Andrew Wiggins, along with a few other assets to Minnesota in exchange for Love. Before […]

Former Celtic Paul Pierce Signs With…the Wizards?

If Celtics fans weren’t used to seeing Paul Pierce in a Nets jersey last season, this year isn’t going to get any easier. In the latest domino to fall since LeBron James decided to return to his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers, the former Celtic Pierce has decided to join the Washington Wizards, according to an ESPN report. […]

Heat vs Spurs: Round Two

Ever since last October 30, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs have been on a collision course to meet in the 2014 NBA Finals. The Heat and Spurs are once again the last two teams standing, and will clash in the Finals for the second consecutive season. It is the first time that the […]

NBA Playoffs Second Round Predictions

One of the most exciting NBA playoff first rounds in recent memory finally came to an end last night. The NBA had its own March Madness, as there were five consecutive win or go home games over the weekend. Despite all the craziness surrounding the first round, there were only three series where the lower […]

Saltalamacchia Pens Thank You to Red Sox Fans

When I learned that Jarrod Saltalamacchia wouldn’t be coming back to the Boston Red Sox, I can’t say I was heartbroken. Sure, Salty had put together a career year, hitting .273/.338/.466 with 14 home runs, 40 doubles, and 65 RBIs. But you could dig your way to China using the holes in his swing, and […]
