Tim MacLean (@TimMacLean_) There are a lot of things you can do to start an NBA season off on the right foot, but getting arrested isn’t one of them. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to Jared Sullinger earlier this month when he turned himself in to police a few days after a domestic violence incident he was involved in. With another court date set for later this month, Sullinger has both that and training camp, which begins at the end of the month, on his plate. It will be interesting to see if Sully can get past this sticky situation because he’ll have to be completely focused on the task at hand if he hopes to earn starter’s minutes this year. Legal issues aside, Sullinger has a rare opportunity in front of him that not many second-year players get. The former Ohio State Buckeye will be starting games for the Celtics this year, whether it’s from day one or at another point in the season.

Video: Phil Pressey interview

Marc D'Amico interviewed Phil Pressey this week as training camp is just around the corner. Pressey is in a rather favorable position. Right now he's the only healthy true point guard on the roster, so not only does he have a solid shot at making the roster, but he could very well play minutes early in his Celtics career. If he sticks he also will get the chance to learn...

Kris Humphries would like to sign a "3 or 4 year deal" with Celtics, help them turn things around

Kris Humphries has been called a lot of things by Celtics fans, both before and after his trade to the Cs on July 12th. And most of them have not been good.

Celtics close to an agreement with 98.5 The Sports Hub to broadcast their games

Last month, WEEI announced that they would no longer be broadcasting Celtics games after the two sides could not reach agreement. At the time it was speculated that the other radio power in the city, 98.5 The Sports Hub, would pounce at the chance to add the Celtics. After all, the station already owns broadcast rights to the Patriots and Bruins, and by adding a 3rd team they could...

Jordan Crawford Says Celtics Are Starting To Look At Him As Leader

Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford is known for a nice dunk on LeBron James during a summer camp run, and for getting ethered by La La Anthony after a Knicks vs Celtics game. Crawford for the little he’s done in the NBA, still has some talent. Even with the Celtics being Rajon Rondo’s team, the fourth year guard out of Xavier believes that he’s looked at as a leader by some...

Doc Rivers admits Kendrick Perkins trade was a mistake

When it went down Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green.

Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some of the anger dissipated. Doc Rivers now admits it was a mistake...

Green Kick Of The Season CF: Rondo’s Hyperposite’s v Pierce’s Air Legacy’s

Last week’s match up was between our two starting guards; Rajon Rondo and his Nike Foamposite Fighter Jet’s versus Avery Bradley and his Adidas AdiZero Crazy Light II’s. This final results were closer than I thought they were going to be. Personally, I thought Rondo and his Fighter Jet’s would run away with the win but this wasn’t the case.

Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries found out they both get mistaken for each other all of the time

Brothers? Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries get mistaken for each other all of the time I wonder what Blake Griffin secretly thinks when someone calls him Kris Humphries? Of course Griffin would never openly admit to what he is thinking when called “Kris Humphries,” but one could assume he probably isn’t too thrilled with it. Humphries on the other hand, probably loves it. This...

SQ13#33—List 2—Rotations?

There has been a lot of speculation on what kind of rotation the Celtics will have this year.  I think the best answer is that they will go round and round.  By that I mean that I think the question is incomplete.  The pertinent omission is When?  I suspect that the rotation in the first game of each month will not likely be the same rotation as used in the first game of the...
