Your Morning Dump… Where Danny <3 Jahlil

Your Morning Dump… Where Danny <3 Jahlil

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Not even the most optimistic Greenheart believes this roster is ready to play in June. Danny Ainge clearly doesn’t. And that is healthy. It’s why he [...]

Recap: C’s taking extended all-star break apparently

I’m asking John & Chuck for a raise for having to suffer through this utter crap fest tonight. In a game that was made worse by poor calls from whistle happy refs, the Celtics got outdone & out played by the Utah Jazz 111-93. This game was only close early on, and despite pulling to [...]

In light of this year’s incredibly dull deadline, Red’s Army presents a team-by-team look at who wasn’t moved, and why they weren’t.

Ainge: A deal was done… until the other team backed out

Ainge: A deal was done… until the other team backed out

There is some consternation on the part of some Celtics fans who have chosen to wag a finger at Danny Ainge and tisk tisk him over a lack of action at the trade deadline. However, Ainge paints a much different picture than that of the General Manager who punted on 4th and an inch rather [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where there are still no fireworks

Your Morning Dump… Where there are still no fireworks

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. It was superstar or bust for Ainge, and he walked away content with his effort. And while the confidence boost may have been unintentional, the Celtics [...]

Ainge: We came close to doing some things…

Ainge: We came close to doing some things…

The trade deadline came and went today with the Celtics making exactly ZERO moves. Al Horford seemed the most realistic option, but the Hawks didn’t move anyone noteworthy. In the end, Danny Ainge just didn’t see anything he liked: “I feel like we came close to doing some things, but ultimately we didn’t. There were [...]

Two teams interested in seeing where Sean Marks stands on Thaddeus Young: Toronto and Boston. Likely more, Young an appealing player. — Chris Mannix (@ChrisMannixYS) February 18, 2016 This is the first time I’ve seen Boston linked to Thaddeus Young. He’s not a 3-point shooter but he’s more athletic than any of our current bigs. [...]
