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

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Report: Ainge’s patience paying off, Sixers chasing 3rd pick

Report: Ainge’s patience paying off, Sixers chasing 3rd pick

Danny Ainge is engaged in a high-stakes game of NBA draft chicken with the rest of the league.

Looks like Ainge might be winning: League sources tell @chadfordinsider and me: Philadelphia is ramping up [...]

Dragan Bender leads the pack in mock drafts

Dragan Bender leads the pack in mock drafts

We have just ten days left of draft speculation. Will the Celtics trade the pick? If not, who will they take? Your guess is as good as mine (leaning 80/20 there’s a trade). I did a quick search of mock drafts and here’s a look at the most popular choices: 1. Dragan Bender (5 votes) Kevin [...]
