Celtics draft: future and history

With the 2011 NBA Draft about 3 weeks away, much of our focus here at Red's Army.com will start to turn there. Despite the Finals starting-up this Tuesday, many Celtics fans, including myself, have little interest in a Celtics-less series.

So who will the C's take with the 25th pick in this year's draft? Or will they try and use their 1st-round pick as part of a deal? The rumors have already started, and names like Matt Howard, Jamie Skeen and Corey Stokes have been tossed around. Stay with us for all the latest on Celtics NBA Draft news.

  • yaaaawn.. 2 sentences about the past and future draft of the most storied franchise in the nba?? try writing for your high school news bc you definitely need more experience. btw your espn article link is broken

  • 1)There’s not much to write about this time of year obviously GreenBeaned.
    2)We’re always looking for contributors so if you’ve got content or can submit better material we’d be more than happy to read & post it.
    3)I expect negativity and disrespect from trolls, but disappointed it comes from a regular like you.

  • it’s no mystery that tough times call for being creative. keep drinking milk kid, some day you’ll get there 🙂

  • I'm not a kid. I'm older than you most-likely. Thanks for being so condescending though.

  • lol. you just broke the writers cardinal sin- never backlash at your audience with a negative tongue. how about chastising the great bill russell for wearing a nonboston uni http://twitpic.com/53fyot or what do you see wrong in this picture http://twitpic.com/5389pq

  • Ha! Great pics..But I'm not a "writer". Just a fan that contributes to the site once in a while. Thanks though-I consider being called one a compliment. ;D

  • np man. like i said keep drinking milk and think about taking a summer course in creative writing. it could help with your confidence. go celts!!

  • that’s a little uncalled for. If you don’t like something, fine… no need to insult someone though.

  • no need to cry over a little constructive criticism- grow some hair on your chest and act like a champion of most storied nba franchise

  • Constructive criticism we accept. You’re insulting someone. In fact, each one of your replies has included an insult.
    You want to be a man, recognize that you’ve been insulting, and apologize?

  • wow i feel sorry for you guys. this site is the antithesis of “political correct” hoops talk. w/o fluffing the bs most of the articles tell it as it is. so if you don’t have game, than you shouldn’t be playing. and when kwapt stops hiding behind his sign i would hug him ┌∩┐(◣_◢)┌∩┐

  • Yep, we tell it like it is. That’s why we’re calling you a prick. The thing is… I don’t even see why.
