Your Morning Dump… Where today’s rules have wiped out old-school NBA

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: All Stars asked Isaiah Thomas “a lot of questions”

Ainge: All Stars asked Isaiah Thomas “a lot of questions”

Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on the Toucher and Rich program. The biggest thing that stuck out was this acknowledgement not just about Brad Stevens… but how interested guys at the All Star game really were about Boston.  “Brad is a big plus for us and our organization. Ultimately people are going to come [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 19: Bonus post-All Star, pre-trade deadline show

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 19: Bonus post-All Star, pre-trade deadline show

Jay and I get together for a little bonus podcast immediately after the All Star Game. Jay immediately launches into an anti-All Star rant though we both agree All Star Saturday was pretty cool. From there, it’s all about the trade deadline and what the Celtics might do. Jay and John disagree on the actual strength [...]

Ainge: Brooklyn pick will be “tough to get”

Danny Ainge joined Toucher & Rich for his weekly Thursday interview and, of course, a lot of the talk centered around the upcoming trade deadline. “Until we become a championship-caliber team, I guess nobody’s not ever tradable,” said Ainge. “But there’s a lot of guys on our roster right now that we have no intention [...]

Boston’s greatest strength is its greatest weakness at the trade deadline

Boston’s greatest strength is its greatest weakness at the trade deadline

The NBA trade deadline is in two weeks. By the time we go to bed 14 days from now, we’ll know whether Danny Ainge was able to pull off a move for any of the assets he’s been stockpiling. But like the conspiracy theorist loading up his bunker for the zombie apocalypse, there’s still an [...]

Danny Ainge won’t panic at the deadline

Danny Ainge won’t panic at the deadline

People love trade rumors. They’re consistently the highest-traffic posts on ours and every other NBA site out there. People love to dream up scenarios and cry for the big play. But no amount of afternoon drive time yelling is going to force Danny Ainge to do something for the sake of doing something.  “I can’t [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny wants to consolidate the roster

During a weekly appearance with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich show, Ainge suggested he will look for trades in which the Celtics send out more players than they receive. “Consolidating quantity for quality right now is sort of something that we’re looking to do,” he said. “But we like all of our players.

Rainin’ J’s Episode 9: Lee’s minutes, All Star Bradley? & A new All-Time team

Jay King and I discuss an interesting week for the Celtics. David Lee (or for some reason, I call him Derrick Lee… because for some reason I confused him for a former Cubs first baseman) and his desire for more minutes is an instant hot topic (and fodder for one of my rants). Also, is Avery [...]
