Your Morning Dump… Where even dumb teams won’t take Danny’s bait

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.

Wait, a GM called about Gerald Wallace?

Wait, a GM called about Gerald Wallace?

I missed this juicy tidbit in Steve Bulpett’s latest column: In this market, the Celtics have wares to offer.

Report: Celtics had exploratory talks for Nuggets Ty Lawson

Grantland’s Zach Lowe has published an insightful trade deadline primer, in which he references the Celtics interest in Nuggets PG Ty Lawson: The more interesting questions surround Ty Lawson and Kenneth Faried.

Tommy’s a Hall of Famer (again), Fitch & Jo Jo could join him

The NBA announced its Hall of Fame finalists and five “direct-elect” members today. Let’s start with the latter, because it involves Tommy Heinsohn going in Hall again, this time as a coach.

Recap: Celtics erase 18 point deficit, shock Atlanta

Full disclosure: I had a recap written midway through the 4th quarter. At that point the Celtics were down 14, they were shooting less than 30%, and the Hawks are the Hawks. This game was over.

Assessing the Trade Value of the Boston Celtics: Part 1

Every year, Grantland’s Bill Simmons comes out with his NBA trade value column in which he assesses the value of the NBA’s top players by listing the top 60 trade assets in order (with some honorable mention candidates). It’s a column I look forward to every year. Simmons does a great job looking at the [...]
