Celtkicks: Summer League Day 2

Celtkicks: Summer League Day 2

Celtics rookies Kelly Olynyk and Colton Iverson brought out some nice kicks today, as did camp invite Phil Pressey.

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

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump..Where Fan Interest Holds Strong

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. When the Boston Celtics acquired Kevin Garnett & Ray Allen in 2007, season ticket sales obviously went through the roof. Now that Garnett, Allen & Paul Pierce [...]
