C’s Summer League 2013: Kelly Olynyk Highlights vs DET

Celtics rookie Kelly Olynyk had his second straight impressive game in the Orlando Summer League with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 5 steals.  He even dove into the stands trying to save a loose ball and got T’d up at one point.  Check the video below for his highlights vs the Pistons. [...]

Fab Melo taking charges: “GIMMIE THAAAAT!!!”

Fab Melo taking charges: “GIMMIE THAAAAT!!!”

So Fab Melo is an ongoing project for the Celtics and so far in two summer league games he’s proven that he is still just that – a project.  But one thing that he has already developed into a pro form is his catch-phrase for when he takes charges.  During today’s complete thrashing against the [...]

Pressey making push to make C’s roster

It didn’t take long for Brad Stevens to text Phil Pressey when he got Celtics head coaching job.  It took even less time for Pressey to call back. “Right when I got the job I sent a text message out that night,” said Stevens.  “He called me within about a minute after I sent the [...]

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 [...]
