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 [...]

Jared Sullinger talks frustrations, keeping his job, and Vanilla Ice

Jared Sullinger talks frustrations, keeping his job, and Vanilla Ice

The two-week long initial inspection of Jared Sullinger’s game as a Celtic is over.  We’ve seen him display a nice post game, some good rebounding ability, some nice passing instincts, and a good mid-range game that allows him to take bigs off the dribble. All in all, it was a good couple of weeks for [...]

Christmas in July

Christmas in July

Dionte Christmas’ great play in Summer League has been rewarded. ESPN Boston’s Greg Payne first tweeted that Boston has signed Christmas to a partially guaranteed contract/camp invite. Our own John Karalis, in Vegas for Summer League, said that Christmas told him he’d be flying to Boston tonight to “sign papers”. Celtics Director of Player Personnel [...]

Christmas mulling “crazy numbers” to play overseas

Christmas mulling “crazy numbers” to play overseas

Dionte Christmas continues to make an impression at Summer League.  And before you accuse me of just being a guy that falls in love with summer players, just know that I’m  not alone. “A lot of  overseas teams contacting me and throwing out some crazy numbers,” Christmas said after yesterday’s game.   “They’re making it [...]

Rajon Rondo coaches up the kids at Summer League

Last night, the Milwaukee Bucks were designated the “road” team in their matchup against the Celtics.  That was very appropriate, considering the crowd was decidedly pro-Boston. And the “home” crowd was in for a bit of a treat.  The few hundred people who showed up to see the a bunch of guys in C’s gear [...]

Celtics brass likes their rookies

We all get a little bit of the Summer Fever around this time of year.  We fall in love with players who never make it.  We fantasize about genius GM’s finding no-name diamonds in the rough that will make an impact for a winning team.  Hell, I did three separate pieces on Dionte Christmas in [...]

VIDEO: E’Twaun Moore Highlights vs Bulls

E’Twaun Moore played perhaps his best game of both summer leagues against the Bulls.  Moore dropped 25 points on 10-19 shooting, burying several jumpers with confidence while sprinkling in some nice drives to the basket.  He still has work to do as a PG, as evidenced by his difficulty of simply making a post-entry pass [...]
