Walter McCarty is most remembered...
The first thing that was mentioned right after the Celtics named Brad Stevens their new coach was whether or not he could handle the mercurial Rajon Rondo. Rondo had just mentioned in an interview that he loved playing for Doc and wanted to play for him. Then Doc went to LA and suddenly, Rondo had a new coach and no one knew how he would react.

Entercom Communications, whose WRKO and WEEI stations in the Boston markets have been the radio home for the Boston Celtics since 2005, will no longer broadcast the storied NBA franchise’s games beginning next season. “WEEI has had an incredible run with the Boston Celtics, from being a part of their 17th championship banner to the end of the Big 3 era,” said...
Boston’s primary goal in the trade was to get under the luxury tax threshold, which likely means Greene is waived by the team before the season begins.
Boston drafted Melo in 2012 with the 22nd overall pick but they dumped him to get out of the tax.
No we're not getting the bag of Doritos for Fab.

What the Hell Happened To, is usually all about perseverance. Unheralded guys going the extra mile to make the mighty Boston Celtics. This week's player, Eric Fernsten, epitomized that. His entire career, he never quite felt safe enough about his job but it was always like that for him. It was that way since he began
playing basketball seriously the summer before his...
One of the reasons for the lockout in 2011 was that the small market teams wanted to make sure the big market teams wouldn't have a stranglehold on all the talent with the money they can offer, taxes be damned.
