Surprise! Marcus Smart has a toe injury

Surprise! Marcus Smart has a toe injury

To make matters worse, Avery [...]

Report: Celtics offered Rondo 5 years, $70 million?

Report: Celtics offered Rondo 5 years, $70 million?

Yahoo’s Marc Spears has a story about Rajon Rondo’s early success in Sacramento where he sheds some light on a contract extension the Celtics reportedly offered Rondo last year: Rondo was in the final year of a five-year, $55 million contract with the Boston Celtics when last season began. He was the last player remaining [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Sullinger and Zeller don’t get no stinkin’ extension

Your Morning Dump… Where Sullinger and Zeller don’t get no stinkin’ extension

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. The Celtics do not plan to sign forwards Jared Sullinger and Tyler Zeller to contract extensions before today’s deadline, a league source said. Both players would become restricted [...]

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Recap: Spurs too much for scrappy Celts

Tonight’s first quarter was absolutely atrocious for Boston. The C’s only managed to score 13 points and looked sloppy. Luckily, the Spurs weren’t a whole heck of a lot better. Thanks to a nice performance off the bench by Jonas Jerebko & some good rebounding, it was only 23-13 after 1Q. It easily could have [...]

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

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…

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 [...]
