Recap: Toronto reminds the Cs who rules the Atlantic

Recap: Toronto reminds the Cs who rules the Atlantic

After dispatching the Philadelphia 76ers of the NBA’s developmental league to open the season, tonight’s tilt with the Raptors felt like an early season measuring stick game for the Celtics. They came up well short. Locked up at 58 after the first half, the Raptors rode hot shooting, while the Cs fell victim to sloppy [...]

In the Celtics Crowded Frontcourt, Amir Johnson Has Quickly Solidified a Role

In the Celtics Crowded Frontcourt, Amir Johnson Has Quickly Solidified a Role

The biggest takeaway from the Celtics season opening win against Philadelphia on Wednesday night was the play of Jared Sullinger. After showing up out of shape and being pushed out of the rotation, Sully capitalized on Kelly Olynyk’s absence and Tyler Zeller’s ineffectiveness and put forth a solid effort. But as John said after the [...]

Ainge takes a dig at Philly (I think), suggests a superstar might be here

Ainge takes a dig at Philly (I think), suggests a superstar might be here

Danny Ainge appeared on Toucher & Rich today… and among the topics discussed was the “lack of a superstar”… and whether the Celtics will be able to attract a premier free agent or find one through the draft. Part of his answer included a shot at what I assume is the Philadelphia 76’ers when he said…  [...]

18 things that will totally happen this Celtics season

18 things that will totally happen this Celtics season

Red’s Army turns 10 years old this season, which in blog years is way too old for me to even calculate. Let’s just say if we were a dog, we’d already be “playing on a farm upstate.” When we started, Chuck and I were on the cutting edge. We were the internet renegades… sticking it [...]

When advanced stats go wrong…

When advanced stats go wrong…

538 just published a new list of The 53 Best Franchise Players in the NBA. Before we dive in, it’s critical to understand the premise: Specifically, we’ve projected the next six seasons of wins above replacement (WAR) for all 572 players in our database. Then we added the cumulative WAR totals over six seasons, with a [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny Ainge isn’t going anywhere

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny Ainge isn’t going anywhere

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. Ainge insists he is not fatigued by the process, nor is he looking to get this rebuilding completed to make his exit and leave the franchise [...]

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.

Scout: NBA coaches copy Brad Stevens’ plays

Scout: NBA coaches copy Brad Stevens’ plays

Sports Illustrated just published a scout’s take on all 30 NBA teams. This scout says a lot about the Celtics rotation and who might be in or out… (go here to read all of that stuff), but the big finish is about Brad Stevens…. I’ve been in the league a long time, and I’ve watched [...]

NBA GM’s have almost no love for the Celtics this year

NBA GM’s have almost no love for the Celtics this year

The annual GM Survey… or probably, more accurately, survey of some GM’s but mostly their assistants… is out today. And the first thing that will stand out to Celtics fans is how General Managers completely disagree with all the wins the algorithms are predicting. Nary a Boston pick in sight here. In fact the only Celtic [...]
