Rainin’ J’s Ep. 17: Hero Bradley & yes, lots of trade talk

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 17: Hero Bradley & yes, lots of trade talk

Fresh off a buzzer-beating win in Cleveland, Jay King and I break down the amazing comeback and how the Celtics were able to score five points in less than five seconds. Tyler Zeller has been rescued from the end of the bench, Evan Turner continues to play really well off the bench, and Marcus Smart is [...]

GGTV episode 9.7: Are all stars great?

The gang gets together to chat about the upcoming NBA All Star week, specifically the over-commercialized hype and the fact it lacks real purpose.  The attention shifts to the rhetorical “Will the Celtics ever be great again?” and they wrap up by covering the coaching shake-up in Cleveland, the drama on the Clippers, and an [...]

Rainin’ J’s episode 16: All Star Isaiah, Turner love, & hair care secrets

Rainin’ J’s episode 16: All Star Isaiah, Turner love, & hair care secrets

The Celtics are on a nice 5-game winning streak and Jay King and I are enjoying the defense behind this stretch of success. Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley (and Jae Crowder) are making life hell for opposing back courts… so much so that opponents are even amazed by the tenacity. The bench has also come alive led [...]

Rainin’ J’s episode 15: Perfection, Production, And don’t throw stones at the throne

Really all you need to know about today’s show is that it includes two wrestling references and two horrible impressions. But if that’s not enough to entice you to listen, then maybe Jay and I enjoying the fact that the Celtics rotation is finally starting to take shape (thanks to health and a couple of [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 14: Set rotations, trade targets, & a rant about uniforms

We’re back this week to talk about the Celtics continued ups and downs… especially those of Kelly Olynyk who can either be really, really good, or really, really bad. Still, it seems like he’s part of a much more solid rotation, and we discuss how health is allowing Brad Stevens to finally get the guys [...]

GGTV episode 9.6: New Year, New (not as good) Team

GGTV episode 9.6: New Year, New (not as good) Team

The Gang kicks off the new year by lamenting the Celtics’ dismal two-week stretch as they flirt with .500 and a tied record with the Knicks.  They contemplate the chances of making the playoffs this season, draft picks, Danny Ainge’s 5-year plan, and the likelihood of his ouster given his place as Green Team alumni. [...]

Rainin’ J’s Episode 13: The malaise, the missing, the potential moves

So… here we are, struggling to figure out what’s wrong with the Boston Celtics after they’ve lost 4 out of 5 games. Among the topics Jay King and I discuss… How much do Isaiah Thomas’ struggles impact the offense? Do they really miss Avery Bradley THAT much? And what can Danny Ainge REALLY do when [...]

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 12: What the hell is suddenly going so wrong?

Rainin’ J’s Ep. 12: What the hell is suddenly going so wrong?

Jay King and I spend most of this show trying to figure out just what the hell is going on with the Celtics and their struggles against bad teams. Guys are trying to take blame all over the place, as is Brad Stevens, but how much of this really is the coach’s fault? Is he handling [...]

GGTV episode 9.5: Trade Bait to NBA JAM!

GGTV episode 9.5: Trade Bait to NBA JAM!

After a month-long hiatus, the Gang gets back in the studio to talk the double-overtime loss to the Warriors, and speculate wildly about trade rumors– principally surrounding the Kings’ DeMarcus Cousins and the Rockets’ Dwight Howard.  Later, they reminisce over the video game NBA JAM in a fun exercise where they put together their favorite [...]

Rainin’ J’s ep. 10: You know… this team is pretty good

  This show can be boiled down to one simple theme…. these guys are pretty good. We get into the epic game against Golden State, including how awesome Avery Bradley’s defense has been. Plus, the very good problem of how to fit Marcus Smart into this lineup and what his return will allow the Celtics [...]
