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.

Brad Stevens named Coach of the Month

It looks like Division-3 reject Brad Stevens can coach after all… because he was just named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month by the NBA. Stevens led the Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference (9-3) in February, which included a 6-0 mark at TD Garden. The Celtics scored 100-plus points in 10 [...]

Brad Stevens sat down with Chris Mannix before yesterday’s game for the latest edition of The Vertical Podcast with Chris Mannix.  The first thing he revealed was that after years as an assistant at Butler, he’d applied for a Division 3 head coaching job.

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. During Saturday’s game, Sullinger grabbed an absurd 42.9 percent of all available defensive rebounds during his 24 minutes, 31 seconds of floor time. That’s only slightly [...]

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 [...]

The Celtics are the third seed and fresh off maybe their best win of the season, so Jay King and I are flat-out gushing over an amazing overtime win over Paul Pierce, Doc Rivers, and the LA Clippers.

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 [...]
