Report: Celtics a front-runner for Tobias Harris

Report: Celtics a front-runner for Tobias Harris

You might remember Tobias Harris from one of his multiple thrashings of the Celtics this past season. The worst was his 21 point, 4 rebound, 2 steal performance in huge second half comeback in March. Well, the Celtics may be taking a page from the Patriots in pursuing players that have burned them in the [...]

Why the Celtics draft is better than you think

Why the Celtics draft is better than you think

Well that’s not what we expected.. With the 16th pick in the draft the Celtics shocked just about everyone by taking Louisville guard Terry Rozier. With needs at shooting, rim protecting, and overall frontcourt toughness, the Celtics opted for another guard in what is already a crowded backcourt with Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley, Isaiah Thomas, [...]

What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

What exactly did Danny Ainge offer Michael Jordan for the 9th pick?

I’m still pretty steamed with the Celtics inability to move up in the draft. What’s the point of having all these assets if you aren’t going to use them? It appears Danny Ainge tried to use the assets but Michael Jordan and the Hornets simply wouldn’t bite: “They [the future picks] are worth a lot, [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Ainge says we fell for the draft hype

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.

Did the Celtics just steal a rim protector in the second round?

Did the Celtics just steal a rim protector in the second round?

Chad Ford seems to think so Mickey is a great shot blocker. Just undersized. Never quite understood why NBA teams didn’t rank him higher. Celtics get rim protector. — Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 26, 2015 Jordan Mickey is another 6’8″ power forward, but he’s not nailed to the ground. The kid can block shots and [...]

And with the 28th pick… the Celtics select RJ Hunter

And with the 28th pick… the Celtics select RJ Hunter

Now that we’ve had enough drinks to get us past the confusion of the 16th pick, let’s tell you a little bit about RJ Hunter… another guard. Actually, before we go too crazy and make Khan/Timberwolves/guards jokes, Hunter (a) isn’t undersized and (b) can shoot, so he breaks the pattern. As you can see from [...]

Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

Celtics draft PG Terry Rozier with 16th pick (Who?)

I couldn’t be more disappointed. Not only were the Celtics unable to move up in the draft (Jahlil Okafor went 3rd to Philly, Justise Winslow went 10th to Miami), but they drafted a defensive point guard. Terry Rozier is 6-2, 190 sophmore out of Louisville. He can defend like hell, rebounds well, but struggles with [...]
