Locked On Celtics w/The Rainin’ J’s: The draft reaction show

So… that happened. The Boston Celtics were dared to make all of their draft picks and they did… making 6 picks and combining two of their second rounders into a future first. Yes, it was underwhelming, especially after ALLLLL those rumors leading up to the draft. But how bad was it really? The #RaininJs John... [More]

My night at the Celtics Draft Party

My night at the Celtics Draft Party

  I spent last night at the Celtics’ draft party at the TD Garden and all I got was this free t-shirt (and Guerschon Yabusele!). Here are some musings from last night:   6:50pm: Two buddies and I waltzed into the Garden with pep in our step and visions of a Trader Danny fireworks display.... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s time for Danny Ainge hot takes!!!

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s time for Danny Ainge hot takes!!!

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The Garden crowd’s response to Ainge’s first choice, and his inability to deliver a trade with the No. 3 pick, was akin to how New Yorkers... [More]

Celtics take Ante Zizic 23rd

Celtics take Ante Zizic 23rd

The Celtics took Croatian big man Ante Zizic with the 23rd pick, another potential draft-and-stash for the Celtics in a draft that is largely underwhelming. The Zizic pick isn’t bad at this spot, though, and I guarantee that people would like it a lot more if the C’s had made a bigger splash with a... [More]

With the 16th pick, Boston selects… Guerschon Yabusele

With the 16th pick, Boston selects… Guerschon Yabusele

Bet ya didn’t see that coming? Here’s a look at some of the scouting reports WEEI:  Scouting report: Yabusele is known for his incredible strength on the block. He tends to bully his defenders and use his explosiveness to get easy looks under the basket. Despite his strength and impressive frame, Yabusele is both nimble... [More]

Wyc says the trades were never close

Your browser does not support iframes. “[We] refuse to get ripped off by anybody,” Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck told Kyle Draper, Brian Scalabrine and A. Sherrod Blakely on CSN’s Celtics Draft Central moments after the team had selected Brown. “[The] trades that were offered to us . . . we’d hang up the phone and kind of... [More]

Celtics take Jaylen Brown amid fury of trade rumors with Bulls, 76ers

Celtics take Jaylen Brown amid fury of trade rumors with Bulls, 76ers

Despite some intense rumors of potential deals with the Chicago Bulls and Philadelphia 76ers, the Celtics went ahead and drafted Cal forward Jaylen Brown. We thought Boston would select Kris Dunn and then move him to either Chicago or Philly. Bulls have held advanced discussions w/ Celtics centered on Jimmy Butler and No. 3 pick.... [More]

Wait… I didn’t think Jimmy Butler was available?

Wait… I didn’t think Jimmy Butler was available?

When the Bulls shipped Derrick Rose to the Knicks, the natural assumption was that Chicago belonged to Jimmy Butler now. Maybe not: Orlando is one of several teams pursuing Jimmy Butler. Also, Houston is trying to get into the 1st round and is offering Patrick Beverley — Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) June 23, 2016 The Celtics... [More]

Thunder hearing offers for Serge Ibaka

Add Serge Ibaka to the trade rumor mill: Here’s a draft-day rumor that comes out of nowhere: The Oklahoma City Thunder are shopping big man Serge Ibaka, according to ESPN’s Marc Spears. Ibaka has one year and $12.3 million left on his contract. In some ways, this isn’t surprising. Ibaka is coming off an uneven... [More]

Philly pulling ahead in race for the 3rd pick?

I feel like I’m trying to keep track of a 29 horse race being run in a hurricane and fog (don’t Neil deGrasse Tyson me here.. I’m trying to set a scene). As we try to figure out where the Celtics cadre of picks may be disseminated, a number of teams seem to be vying... [More]
