Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
The Celtics have released the above video of Kelly Olynyk riding the Green Line to the Garden. I really like the way he has gotten involved in the community and the fans this summer. He spent the day at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, N.H. with young people affiliated with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. He also visited Fenway Park wearing a Red Sox uniform and ball cap, where he met David Ortiz and many of the fans.
It's great that he is taking an interest in Boston and the fans. And, now it won't be long until we get to see what he can do on the court, feet permitting, that is.

Danny Ainge was Boston sports radio 98.5 the SportsHub before the Shamrock Foundation's sixth annual Teeing up For Kids Golf Tournament this morning. It has been rumored that 98.5 will be the radio home of the Celtics this season and so we can expect them to be a bit more aggressive with their Celtics coverage, starting with this morning's interview with Danny Ainge on the...
A lot has been going on in the life of Celtics guard Avery Bradley.
With the season quickly approaching, the defensive stud recently lost his mother and welcomed a new child into the world, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg.
Ainge also noted that Bradley and his girlfriend welcomed their first child, Avery Bradley III, on Tuesday morning. Said Ainge: "So AB3 we’ll...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Has anyone seen Gerald Wallace? If so, Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens would like to speak with him:
“I’m anxious to meet Gerald,” Ainge admitted before the team’s annual golf tournament to benefit the Shamrock...
Jared Sullinger’s court case will continue on, though his girlfriend Deann Smith wishes to drop the case completely. The Celtics forward appeared in Waltham District Court on Monday for a pretrial hearing, and is due back for a second pretrial session on Oct. 28, according to media sources. This pretrial hearing is only two days before the Celtics regular season opener in Milwaukee...
President of basketball operations Danny Ainge has made himself very clear: The Boston Celtics will not rush the return of point guard Rajon Rondo. In an interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub on Monday morning Ainge stated that early December is currently the target date for the All-Star point guard. Rondo underwent surgery to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in...
Umm..so this is awkward.
As we all know, the beloved Molly McGrath moved on to Fox Sports 1 this summer, leaving the position as Celtics web reporter up for grabs.
Now, the Celtics are replacing her with a girl that could possibly be her long lost twin. Meet Emily Austen.
Not bad Celtics, not bad at all.
And if history has taught us anything, it's that Austen will...
After a long hiatus due to an offseason of inactivity and the laziness of yours truly, Celtics Life Week in Reviews are back! What a week is was! We found out about some former Celtics players that are always top of mind like Joe Pace and Johnny McCarthy. It's nice to focus on those guys, because boy is that current Celtics section looking depressing.
Catch up on a busy week...
Avery Bradley is entering the last season before he becomes eligible for restricted free agency in 2014. The Celtics only have a little more than a month left before they would need to table contract extension talks until next summer, and the team sounds content to wait.
Bradley and the Celtics will “most likely” wait until after the season to have substantive negotiations, Celtics...
CelticsLife Live is back as CL writers Mike Dyer, Eric Blaisdell and Mark Vandeusen discuss Rajon Rondo's trade value, the opening night starting line-up, and much more.
Check it out!
CSNNE Celtics insider, Sherrod Blakely, reported in August that he expected Rondo to miss the first month of the season and now Celtics general manager, Danny Ainge, is backing up that theory. In an interview with ESPN’s Chris Forsberg, Ainge said he would be “shocked” if Rondo were ready for the season opener, also predicting an early December return for the Celtics point...
Shaq Diesel is in the building, folks, and he's military pressing the governor of California's wife, Anne Brown, over his head.
I didn’t think Rondo would be ready by the season opener. And with the Celtics not exactly contenders this season, no reason to rush him back at all. Ainge said he'd be "shocked" if Rondo ready for season opener. Hesitates on timeline and said they will take it week by week and not rush. — […]
The goal for the Celtics is a little different this year.
Instead of trying to wring one last championship run from the tired, old legs of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, the Celtics have started anew with a younger, far less star-studded roster. A few of the new guys, like Rajon Rondo‘s old nemesis Kris Humphries, might not be so welcomed by Celtics fans. Meanwhile, the familiar...
The past few days have been full of some fun surprises. First, Gerald Henderson took a minute to shoot back a rebuttal to my calling Larry Bird’s steal against the Pistons in 1987 “The best play in Celtics history“
Then Keith Olbermann decided he wanted to disagree with me too. He said John Havlicek’s steal in 1965 was the best.
While all three were great plays that can...
While it has been rumored as being close for some time now, it appears a deal to make 98.5 The SportsHub the radio home of the Boston Celtics is really close now.
Sean Grande and Danny Ainge both appeared on the Toucher and Rich show this morning, and while no announcement has been made yet, it seems pretty obvious that this is going to happen.
I’m conflicted on the move to this...
