Brad Stevens was robbed for Coach Of The Year

The Boston Celtics were represented quite well at the NBA Awards. Hall of Famer Bill Walton, Aron Baynes, and Jayson Tatum made up the bulk of the Celtics table. Tatum, Brad Stevens, and Kyrie Irving were each nominated for awards. Irving won handle of the year, Tatum lost ROTY to Ben Simmons (who he outplayed in the conference semis), but the worst of all was Stevens. The mastermind who's improved the Celtics record every year, who lost 11 players from last season and guided them back to the conference finals despite losing their top two players prior to the playoffs even beginning lost the Coach Of The Year award to Dwane Casey. Yeah, the same one who was fired after being swept by Cleveland. Blasphemy.

Celtics intend to re-sign Aron Baynes

The Boston Celtics stood pat on draft night and they were rewarded immensely for their patience after Robert Williams fell all the way to No. 27. The former Texas A&M center was projected to be selected from anywhere in the late lottery to the middle of the first round However, there were some concerns about his work ethic and conditioning during the pre-draft process. Those concerns, coupled with questions about his knee, resulted in Williams slide during the draft.

Danny Ainge does it again: Boston's 2019 draft situation

It's hard to argue that the Boston Celtics are primed for one of the more successful futures in the NBA. They've got a starting lineup filled with stars, Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, and Al Horford. And they're more than capable off the bench with talents like Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart (pending re-sign), Marcus Morris, Semi Ojeleye, Guerschon Yabusele, Robert Williams, and Daniel Theis, among others. However, the future could blossom into something even brighter with the assets inside GM Danny Ainge's treasure chest.

Why the Celtics should acquire a second-round pick

The Boston Celtics currently hold just one selection (No. 27) in the 2018 NBA Draft. That's the fewest picks the Celtics have had in a draft in recent memory. Last year they had four draft picks, in 2016 they had a whopping eight picks, and in 2015 they also had four. In fact, it's been half a decade since Boston held just one selection in the 2013 draft. That puts GM Danny Ainge in quite a precarious situation. Restricted free agent guard Marcus Smart could potentially receive an offer that Boston simply can't match. Kyrie Irving and Al Horford can opt out of the final year of their respective deals in 2019.

Report: Celtics interested in Euro star Brad Wanamaker

We're two days away from the 2018 NBA Draft and rumors from around the league are at an all-time high on the cusp of one of the biggest free agency periods in recent history. The Boston Celtics have continually been linked to players such as LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard. We're inching closer and closer to seeing if those whispers will come to fruition. Boston is stacked at the wing position with developing stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Head coach Brad Stevens also hinted that he expects Gordon Hayward to be fully recovered and playing pickup by August. Barring a trade, the Celtics have Marcus Morris and Semi Ojeleye under contract as well for 2018-19.

Did the Celtics make the right decision to trade Avery Bradley?

The Boston Celtics pulled off a shocking move early on July 7. The Celtics made the tough decision to part ways with longtime Celtic Avery Bradley as they shipped him off to Detroit. In return, Boston received forward Marcus Morris. The trade allowed Boston to open up the necessary cap room to sign Gordon Hayward to a maximum contract while also allowing them to sign stashed forward Guerchon Yabusele. Bradley had played in Boston since the Celtics selected him with the no. 19 pick in the 2010 d

Boston Celtics 2017 NBA Summer League Preview

The Boston Celtics begin summer league play tonight in Utah. They’ll take on Markelle Fultz and the Philadelphia 76ers to begin their Utah Summer League tilt. The Celtics will participate in the Utah Summer League and the Las Vegas Summer League for the second consecutive season. The Las Vegas Summer League playoffs will begin on July 12. Coincidentally, I wrote about Brown’s debut this time last year before he made Celtics fans fall in love with his game as a rookie. Brown showed off raw athl

How Does Jayson Tatum fit in with the Boston Celtics?

The Boston Celtics made the most shocking deal of the 2017 NBA Draft when they traded down from the No. 1 selection. The Celtics elected to trade the top pick for the No. 3 pick and a conditional first-round selection in 2018 or 2019 from the Philadelphia 76ers. Boston will get the Lakers pick in 2018 if it falls between 2-5 or they will get the Sacramento King’s pick in 2019 as long as it isn’t No. 1. Boston moved down after reports surfaced that Markelle Fultz didn’t exactly impress them when

It's a great time to be a Boston Celtics fan

The Boston Celtics may be in the most ridiculous position of any team in NBA history. The Celtics are the youngest No. 1 seed ever with an average age of 26. They defeated Washington in a thrilling game seven on Monday to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. And, they landed the number one pick in the 2017 NBA Draft via Brooklyn during the NBA’s Draft Lottery. Back in 2013, the Celtics made an extremely tough decision to package Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, D

The Celtics need to find their offense amidst runs in game five

The Boston Celtics fell 121-102 in Washington to lose their second straight game. Their second-round playoff series with the Wizards is now evened up at two games apiece. Looking back on it, Boston might call themselves fortunate to be locked in a tie with Washington. Despite winning the first two games of the series at home, the Celtics have shown more bad than good. They’ve yet to lead after the first half in each of the first four games. Boston trailed after the first 24 minutes in games one

Celtics mental toughness on display after series opening win against Washington

The Boston Celtics have traveled quite the tumultuous path this past week. Last Sunday, they handled the Bulls in Chicago to tie up their first-round series at two apiece after dropping the first two games in Boston. The Celtics would go on to dismantle the Bulls in the fourth quarter of game five to win by 11. In game six, Boston took a 13 point lead into halftime before dispatching Chicago by a score of 51-42 in the second half. All in all, the Celtics would win 105-83 to clinch their first p

Isaiah Thomas's supporting cast must step up amidst the pressure of the playoffs

The Boston Celtics bench unit averaged 32.7 points per game, which was good for merely 22nd in the NBA during the regular season. During Sunday’s playoff-opening loss to Chicago in Boston, the Celtics bench mustered just 22 points, good for 12th in the 2017 NBA Playoffs. In comparison, Isaiah Thomas finished Game 1 with 33 points (10-18 FG, 3-7 3PT, 10-12 FT), five rebounds and six assists. The Celtics went 11 deep on Sunday. Marcus Smart, Kelly Olynyk, Jaylen Brown, Gerald Green, Jonas Jereb

Celtics take control of their destiny courtesy of the Heat

The Boston Celtics defeated the Brooklyn Nets 114-105 in the same fashion we’ve seen far too many times this season. The Celtics built a huge lead, as much as 27, and then saw it dip into single digits multiple times in the fourth quarter, ultimately pulling the game out, but continuing to show question marks with their ability to play a complete game. I’m not sure how optimistically we should react to the fact that the Celtics are now first in the Eastern Conference with one game to play despi

Jae Crowder's Overlooked and Improved Rebounding

The shorthanded Boston Celtics split games with the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers over the weekend. Thomas was out for the weekend games with a bruised knee. It swelled up on him after he took some physical shots in the Celtics win over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Thomas was questionable against Philadelphia, but it’s hard not seeing him return when the C’s take on the Washington Wizards on Monday night. The Wizards and Celtics have had a rivalry all season and I doubt Thomas will miss t

Danny Ainge's patience shows why he's one of the top GM's in the NBA

With the Sacramento Kings seemingly flipping their stance on the future of DeMarcus Cousins in the span of a few hours, the New Orleans Pelicans pounced to land the superstar big man. The trade rumors began to circulate during the NBA All-Star game, but they were shot down after sources inside the Kings organization said that the front office told Cousin’s agent that he would not be traded. A few hours later, ‘Boogie’ was in fact traded, and based on reports, that news came out of left field fo

Before the Deadline: Most Valuable Boston Celtics Trade Assets

With the 2017 NBA trade deadline rapidly approaching, front offices around the league are working the phones to put together the best possible deals for their clubs. After 3 p.m. eastern on Thursday, Feb 23 the trade window will officially be closed. That’s only a few more days, with the All-Star break in-between them from Feb. 17 to Feb. 19, for some big moves to go down. The trade waters are already starting to get more active, and more rumors are starting to circulate. The Boston Celtics ma

Jaylen Brown is taking advantage of his new starting role

“This is unique. This isn’t the way it is everywhere.” Those were the words Celtic’s coach Brad Stevens uttered to Jaylen Brown as the organization and fans paid tribute to Paul Pierce, thanking and honoring him for his legendary career with the franchise. Stevens clearly recognizes the talent that Brown could end up being if he lives up to his potential. It’s notable to me because this is almost where Pierce was in his career exactly 18 years ago. A rookie small forward out of Kansas, who was

Jae Crowder and Gordon Hayward Make Sense Together, Not Apart

On January 3rd, we saw Jae Crowder get as frustrated with the fans as we’ve seen in his career. He was very upset that the Celtic fans cheered for Gordon Hayward, a potential free-agency target this summer, during introductions and throughout the Celtics 115-104 win over the Jazz. Crowder made it absolutely clear how disappointed he was that the fans were cheering for a guy who could potentially come in and take his spot. He fired off a series of Tweets that didn't sit well with Celtics fans on

Boston's Draft Situation and Five Prospects to Keep Your Eyes On

Celtic’s fans, if you’ve been in some kind of stupor since New Years, it’s time to take a peek at the standings. Boston is in a situation that no other team can dream about.  The Celtics are #3 in the East while holding the #1 odds in the lottery thanks to their right to swap picks with the Brooklyn Nets. We’ve got a long way to go until those lottery odds become official, but the Nets look like the clear-cut worst team in the league by a wide margin. With insightful trading by Danny Ainge, the
