The Fab Melo challenge facing the Celtics

The Fab Melo challenge facing the Celtics

The Celtics face a bit of a challenge with Fab Melo this season. The second year center is still not ready to be a contributor at the NBA level.  His movements on the floor were often slow yesterday, especially laterally.  He had trouble catching the ball.  And while it wasn’t all bad for Melo yesterday, [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s Summer League for Brad Stevens too

Your Morning Dump… Where it’s Summer League for Brad Stevens too

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “A lot coaches are down here evaluating the players and I’m down here getting a feel for not only the players, but also the game, the discussion [...]

“Coach” Sullinger will have none of your tanking talk

“Coach” Sullinger will have none of your tanking talk

21-year-old Jared Sullinger’s NBA career has spanned 45 games.  He is, on a team that will already be young, one of its youngest players. But Sullinger doesn’t carry himself like some kid.  Here in Orlando, he’s setting up shop on the Celtics’ bench, and playing the role of mentor to guys like Kelly Olynyk, who [...]

Olynyk impresses in summer debut, but Celtics want more

Olynyk impresses in summer debut, but Celtics want more

Yes, it’s summer league, which is the caveat that should just be understood as we get into any of these pieces.  But Kelly Olynyk looked pretty good in his first game with “Boston” on his chest.  After nearly 27 minutes of play, the scouting report on him looked pretty accurate. He poured in a game-high [...]

Recap: Knicks put an end to this miserable season

Recap: Knicks put an end to this miserable season

A season to forget ended at the Garden tonight. I’m thankful because I just can’t take it anymore. The Celtics played atrocious basketball for 39 minutes. The performance rivaled the worst of the worst in this decade. If Dan Dickau was on this team, Doc Rivers would have played him 44 minutes. The offense was [...]

J.R. Smith apparently went clubbing before Game 5

J.R. Smith apparently went clubbing before Game 5

J.R. Smith couldn’t make a shot last night… but he was apparently making a lot of them the night before… at a few NYC hotspots. However, it looks like Smith may have celebrated too hard the night before as pictures of Smith downing alcohol at a club have surfaced. Smith visited three clubs on Tuesday [...]

Enemy Chatter: Knicks players, media and fans are panicking

Enemy Chatter: Knicks players, media and fans are panicking

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from New York. Go ahead and be afraid, New Yorkers. Your basketball team just wore black to another team’s burial — a really dumb thing to do — only for that team [...]

Recap: Grit and balls trumps Knicks clown talk

Recap: Grit and balls trumps Knicks clown talk

Is there anything better than watching somber Knicks fans walk out of Madison Square Garden on a night they hoped to win their 1st playoff series in 13 years? The Celtics scratched and clawed their way to a 92-86 win over New York in a game deemed the Celtics’ funeral by Kenyon Martin. Mr. Big [...]

Crowdsourcing the Celtics: Pierce talks about his future. Here’s your take

Crowdsourcing the Celtics: Pierce talks about his future. Here’s your take

I’m not thrilled this came up today while this series, technically, is still going on…. but Paul Pierce was asked about his future as a Celtic.  Here’s part of what he said “Truthfully, I haven’t put too much thought into [the future],” Pierce said at the team’s morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden. The Celtics [...]
