Paul Pierce playing in WSOP

ESPN’s A. Feldman tweeted this pic today of *gulp* former  current Celtic (until 7/10) Paul Pierce at the World Series of Poker in Omaha Nebraska. Notice he’s rocking the ’08 Celtics bling. And according to, Truth is doing pretty well: Professional basketball player Paul Pierce was sparring with professional poker players on Saturday in Las Vegas — and was...

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 25 points in Boston’s 95-88 loss to the host Orlando Magic.  He only...

Kelly Olynyk scores 25 points in Celtics debut; C's fall to Magic in summer league opener

Summer league is always interesting. You have first round picks making their team debuts, assistant coaches playing the role of head coaches, dozens of players leaving it all on the floor as they fight for a job, and T-shirt jerseys. Maximum effort collides head on with marginal talent, and the results are normally strugglefests. With all that in mind, today's summer league...

Celtics sign 1st-round draft choice Olynyk

The Boston Celtics have signed 7-footer Kelly Olynyk, their first-round draft choice. The Celtics traded up in last month's draft to pick Olynyk with the 13th overall selection. Olynyk made his summer league debut on Sunday and scored 25 points in the Celtics' 95-88 loss to the Houston Rockets. Celtics general manager Danny Ainge sent the No. 16 pick and two future second...

Sully is ready to prove the doubters wrong (again)

He told Kennedy that Boston’s doubters may be in for a surprise this year, and that “Celtic pride” is still alive and well: “You got to understand, with you being a Celtic you...

Celtics Stuff Live, from Orlando Summer League, at 8pm

Brad Stevens: The Boston Celtics? Like wow!

The Celtics  introduced Brad Stevens today as their new head coach. Here are some excerpts from the press conference: On leaving Butler and coming to Boston: BS: It’s an honor and privilege to be here. I’m just in awe of this organization.

Would the Detroit Pistons Deal Greg Monroe for Rajon Rondo?

A possible trade involving Rajon Rondo and the Detroit Pistons started out as internet fodder but has gained steam in the past few days. MLive’s Brendan Savage kept the rumor train moving on Friday, reminding everyone that the Pistons “have inquired” about Rondo. On this week’s Detroit Sports Show, Max DeMara and I discussed the possibility of a “Big Three” in Detroit...

Ainge reportedly targeted Stevens from the start

Here's another reason not to believe GMs when they say things publicly. According to the Boston Globe's Baxter Holmes, Danny Ainge had been targeting new head coach Brad Stevens well before Doc Rivers left for Hollywood. At some point, though, Ainge had been seriously considering another candidate to become the next head coach of the Celtics, a candidate that Ainge had...

Brad Stevens is Boston’s new coach: A roundup

Meet the Celtics new coach…a few days late There are few times when a site going down would be convenient for its writers, but for us here at Celtics Town, going down right before the Boston Celtics shock the basketball world and hire a young college stud of a coach is perhaps the least convenient time ever.
