Is Jared Sullinger Hitting the Wall?
January 26th, 2014 at 12:24 PM

Should the Boston Celtics Think About Trading Jeff Green?
January 21st, 2014 at 2:34 PM
What could we possibly write about once the trade deadline passes and the rumors are gone? We'll probably write about the lottery, tanking, and who could be potential additions in the summer.  ***PHOTO1*** We probably won't write about what's going on during the games though. That would be boring, right? So, let's dive...

January 6th, 2014 at 2:39 PM
The idea of Celtic Pride is older than the banners hanging from the rafters in the TDGarden. This summer "ubuntu" was retired when Doc Rivers, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett left Boston. Jared Sullinger promised that this new group of Boston Celtics was going to play with Celtic Pride all year....

Brad Stevens’ Bulldog Attitude is Translating to the Boston Celtics
December 6th, 2013 at 9:33 AM
Brad Stevens must be one heck of a motivator. For six years as head coach of the Butler Bulldogs, Brad Stevens led the underdogs to back-to-back National Championships. He recruited players that no one else wanted. He is basketball's Statue of Liberty, he took basketball's tired and poor and made...

November 24th, 2013 at 12:45 PM

Gerald Wallace is Having Difficulty Finding Any Pleasure in the Boston Celtics’ First Win
November 7th, 2013 at 11:42 AM
Gerald Wallace wants to win basketball games. He's an intense player whose nickname "Crash" is apt. However, it seems that Wallace's desire to win is only matched by his desire to do it on his own terms, the way he likes it. Before last night's victory over the Utah Jazz Gerald...
