Report: The Bear will dance in China this season

Report: The Bear will dance in China this season

Guerschon Yabusele went from “who” to “whoa” in Summer League, displaying they type of footwork that belied his size.

Well, [...]

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.

Locked On Celtics: Assessing the Russell Westbrook situation

Locked On Celtics: Assessing the Russell Westbrook situation

Russell Westbrook’s situation stands to be one of the most fascinating of the next couple of months. He could sign an extension to stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He could refuse to sign one and force the team to consider the trade market. The Thunder want to extend Westbrook’s contract, we know that, so [...]

Jae Crowder doesn’t give a damn about the Celtics options in free agency next year

Jae Crowder doesn’t give a damn about the Celtics options in free agency next year

It appears Jae Crowder isn’t a fan of a) Comcast’s annoying slideshow format for content or b) the Celtics free agent options in 2017. I’m guessing it’s the latter. FWIW – Comcast lists Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Rudy Gay, Danilo Gallinari and Gordon Heyward. Four of those guys happen to play Crowder’s position. [...]

Locked On Celtics: Summer League Superlatives

The Boston Celtics didn’t have a great summer league, but Terry Rozier was great, Jaylen Brown showed off his potential and Guerschon Yabusele left a good first impression on fans.
