Green’s Market Stronger Than Rondo’s?

Green’s Market Stronger Than Rondo’s?

Sherrod Blakely is reporting that a league executive has said that the free agency market for Jeff Green may be even stronger than the one for Rajon Rondo this coming offseason: “A league executive told CSNNE.com on Saturday that the market for Green is as strong, “if not stronger”, than it is for Rajon Rondo, [...]

Should the Celtics try playing zone?

Should the Celtics try playing zone?

The Celtics defense has gotten off to an awful start in the 2014-15 season, as they rank 26th out of 30 teams giving up 110.9 points per 100 possessions. The Celtics give up a league high 50.9 paint points per game, and that number trends closer to 60 paint points per game over their last [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where other teams are interested in Brandon Bass

Your Morning Dump… Where other teams are interested in Brandon Bass

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Scouts and opposing front-office types have begun to speak and inquire about the 29-year-old forward, a practice that’s generally a precursor to discussing a trade. Danny Ainge [...]

What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

What should the Celtics do to better close out games?

Much has been made out of the Celtics inability to close out tight games, and with good reason. Four of their seven losses have come by five points or less. Boston’s most frustrating loss of the season came at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers, where they blew a 17 point lead in the 4th quarter. While [...]

Dividing Minutes between the Celtics Frontcourt

Dividing Minutes between the Celtics Frontcourt

Brad Stevens is going to have some difficult decisions to make regarding his frontcourt rotations this season. The Celtics have four players (five if you include Jeff Green) who currently deserve significant minutes and Vitor Faverani is on his way back from injury, and rookie Dwight Powell who will most likely spend the majority of [...]

Throwback Thursday: C’s vs Sixers in a classic 1980’s matchup

It was Superbowl Sunday in 1986 and it was hours before the Patriots were about to get blasted by the Bears.  During a matinée game at the Garden, the Celtics and Sixers battled in a close game featuring Larry Bird at his zenith, Bill Walton during his revival, Dr. J and Moses at the end, [...]

The Celtics Need More Out of Jeff Green

The Celtics Need More Out of Jeff Green

If there was a list of the top 5 most confounding players in the NBA, Jeff Green would surely be on it. He often shows flashes of greatness that leave fans wanting more, like his 43 point performance against LeBron and the Heat a couple of years back. In that game, Green showed the skill [...]

The myth of the “max guy”

The myth of the “max guy”

One of the things I heard in the aftermath of Friday night’s failure by Rajon Rondo to get a potential game-winning shot off was that it was proof he’s not a “max guy.”  In fact, the question of whether he’s a “max guy” has become the center of most discussions about his future. The “max [...]

Breaking Down the Celtics Pick and Roll Defensive Struggles

Breaking Down the Celtics Pick and Roll Defensive Struggles

To start the season, the Celtics defense has been disappointing. The team ranks in the bottom five in defensive rating, a statistic that adjusts for pace of play by measuring points per 100 possessions. It seems that the team’s goal of finishing as a top 10 defensive team is a pipe dream at this point, [...]

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

SI’s Chris Mannix spoke with one Eastern Conference league executive about Rajon Rondo and Marcus Smart:​ I don’t think Rondo is a max guy, but he is close to it. I’m not huge on point guards getting max deals. Derrick Rose is a max player. Max guys have to be able to carry a team. If [...]
