It’s the Thanksgiving season so it’s time for Celtics fans to “give thanks” (look it’s my favorite holiday and I’m going to extend it a few days). And even though the season is young it’s pretty clear Boston has a lot to be thankful for. Be thankful for Kemba Walker, the ideal point guard for
Tony Allen is one of the most beloved Boston Celtics post-Big Three era. And I don’t mean the Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen Big Three. I mean the original Big Three. “I didn’t want to leave,” said Allen. “Every time I come into Boston I hear it: ‘Tony Allen, we love you’. It always
Gordon Hayward WAS back. His shot was falling, he was explosive cutting and driving to the basket, he was controlling the offense. Mainly, his swagger/his confidence was back. Unfortunately, all of that came to a screeching halt Saturday night in San Antonio in a win against the Spurs when Hayward collided with LaMarcus Aldridge. “It
The Boston Celtics have reeled off four wins in-a-row after dropping the first game of the season to the Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia pounded Boston on the glass to the tune of 62-41, and yet I think the C’s need to almost abandon the center position all together. I’ll admit it would be GREAT if one
There is a different vibe around this year’s Celtics team. I made the point earlier in the summer that it felt a little forced. Every chance the media had to shove a microphone in front of the faces of any of the Team USA teammates they talked about the chemistry. Maybe I shouldn’t have brushed
Jaylen Brown is gambling on himself. Personally, I think it’s a smart move. I’m a big fan of Brown. His development over the years has perturbed a few, but each year he seems to carve a role out for himself to flourish. He did that two years ago in the playoffs when they needed him
Tacko Fall isn’t going anywhere. Well, at least outside of the Boston Celtics’ eyes. The Celtics announced Sunday some tricky bookwork to retain the rights to Tacko. We have signed rookie Max Strus to a standard NBA contract and converted center Tacko Fall to a two-way contract. #FlywireTeamTransactionshttps://t.co/dJHDFrV1Tm — Boston Celtics (@celtics) October 13, 2019
The Boston Celtics kickoff their preseason slate on Sunday against the Charlotte Terry Roziers (ugh, fine, the Charlotte Hornets). And with a new season on the horizon it’s time to get some predictions out for the season. Adam Kaufman and the C’s reporter Marc D’Amico hash out some of the more important seasonal awards. Celtics
Jaylen Brown’s upcoming contract negotiations will be a recurring storyline all year. Luckily for the Boston Celtics they recently went through a similar one with another key member of their young core: Marcus Smart. (Now you get the pun in the title of the article. It’s okay if you didn’t get it right away.) The
Here is a fact: Team USA had four Boston Celtics players on it. Another fact: Team USA did not win the FIBA World Cup. However, since those two statements are true you have a lot of the NBA public making the following false accusation: Team USA’s loss in FIBA is the Celtics fault. That is
Kemba Walker is a fan favorite already and Boston hasn’t even taken the floor yet. On this week’s Good ‘N Plenty podcast Jeff Goodman sat down with Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens. Stevens mentioned early on that he was a big fan of Boston’s new point guard. He noted he’s followed Kemba since high school.
Gordon Hayward’s progress is on the short list of most important developments of the offseason. If he can rekindle some of his stats from his days with the Utah Jazz then Boston becomes a legitimate threat in the East. Last season reports emerged that some of the Celtics players weren’t thrilled with Gordon’s immediate insertion
Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are two of the brightest young players in the league. Brown is already making waves as a standout voice in players association. Meanwhile Jayson is already garnering Nike shoe deals. Both hopefully are big parts of Boston’s future. But after lackluster seasons last year, Tatum more so than Brown, which
Team USA finalized it’s roster on Saturday morning after losing to Australia. Good news for the Boston Celtics: All four C’s players on the initial roster made the team. Marcus Smart, Kemba Walker, Jayson Tatum, and Jaylen Brown will don the red, white, and blue for the upcoming FIBA World Cup. Team USA starts their
A lot of you agree that the Celtics biggest loss this offseason was Al Horford. Hard to argue. What he does on both ends of the floor goes unnoticed/under-appreciated. Defensively he was the quarterback of the defense. He was a perfect fit for Brad Stevens’ scheme: a big that could switch onto different types of
Brad Stevens takes most of the blame for the way last season went for the Boston Celtics, even though some would say that’s unfair. It’s hard to coach a team that doesn’t gel together. Part of being a “team” is playing FOR each other and it’s not a stretch to say that Boston didn’t consistently
Kyrie Irving’s quick departure from Boston is still puzzling. We had Brooklyn’s Spender Dinwiddie proclaim that the new Nets point guard contacted him in December about joining forces. How did things go wrong in short order? That’s what the goal was for Chris Forsberg in his most recent article for NBC Sports. How did the Celtics
Bob Ryan is a former American sportswriter for The Boston Globe. He has been described as “the quintessential American sportswriter”. – @GlobeBobRyan 1:30 – Celtics taking a plunge on Tacko Fall 8:22 – Could young Celtics learn valuable lessons at USA World Cup training camp? 16:04 – Alright with Jayson Tatum’s talk over lower NBA2K
In my opinion Grant Williams and Carsen Edwards are impact players in year one. I believe Grant will contribute for the Celtics right away, while Edwards will need a little bit of time to carve out a role. The important thing is both have NBA ready skills that will show up in their rookie years.
The Summer League Celtics are more fun to watch than the real team. That is a real take floating around that’s…actually probably more accurate than I want to give credit to. Actual NBA basketball is better than the pick-up atmosphere in Las Vegas. But I get the point. These guys look like they actually enjoy
Doors are opening for Jayson Tatum this upcoming season. Boston is losing 23.8 points per game, five rebounds, and seven assists per game thanks to Kyrie Irving’s departure. Add in Al Horford’s 13.6/6.2/4.2 and, well, you can figure it out. The Celtics lost a lot free agency this offseason. However, the world is not going
The reports lead to you believe that come Sunday Kemba Walker will be the newest Boston Celtic point guard. However, let’s also point out that I’m writing this on Friday. There is a ton of time between now and the start of NBA Free Agency. Nothing is written in stone yet. It’s more like pencil
Al Horford delivered a mighty blow to the Celtics contention hopes when the news about him leaving for greener pastures broke. Horford is the type of veteran presence any young team needs. Now a team built around hyped-up young pieces needs to steer its way deep into the playoffs without a rudder. And this is
