Found July 14, 2012 on PRO HOOPS CENTRAL:
Your Old Pal New York Vinnie is going to be walking a treacherous path while writing this column. Frequent visitors to New York Vinnie’s House, know that I live and die with “MY BOYS” the New York Knicks; however what you might not be aware of is that New York Vinnie’s “MAIN CAT” and My Boss here at PRO HOOPS CENTRAL, the SACKMAN grew up in Boston and though as a true pro he tries to remain objective he does still have a soft spot for the Boston Celtics. Now it should come as no surprise that New York Vinnie does not like the Celtics, but I have always had a lot of respect for the club, due to what they have accomplished as well as the way they conduct themselves. Unlike the bunch of “FRICKIN PUDS” on the Miami Heat roster, Boston has always acted classy whether they win or lose. While the spotlight has shone on the Brooklyn Nets, the Heat, the Knicks and the Orlando Magic, Boston president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, has quickly and quietly re-tooled the Celtics roster. ...

Decoding Danny Ainge

“I don’t feel like we lost Ray, I feel like Ray left us to go to Miami,” said Ainge. “We appreciate all that Ray’s done, and all that him and (Allen’s wife) Shannon have done in our community. We tried to get Ray back; he chose to go to Miami.” Translation: I said I was sorry about trying to trade him and we offered him all the money we could, but it was too late...

What the Hell Happened to...Justin Reed?

He was just the second, second round draft pick Danny Ainge made in his tenure with the Celtics (the first was this guy).  He lead a ridiculous comeback in a preseason game against the Cavs that I'm not sure just how many people remember.  He may also be the last player to wear #9 (if it ever gets retired for Rajon Rondo some day).  But if you were a fan of the Celtics just...

Danny Ainge Says He Doesn't 'Feel Like We Lost Ray' Allen, That 'No One Player Makes a Team'

From the amount of moaning and pitchfork-wielding going on around Boston after Ray Allen decided to sign with the Miami Heat rather than return to the Celtics, people may think Allen's move is among the top tragedies of the century. But Allen doesn't feel that way, as he said when he was introduced by the Heat on Wednesday. And Celtics president of basketball operations Danny...

At 10 AM Eastern time, Danny Ainge will introduce the Boston Celtics' newly signed free agents, which should include Jason Terry, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass.

Scout: Jared Sullinger would start for some teams

Jared Sullinger has been a Celtic for exactly two weeks and he’s played in four summer league games.  It was our first chance to look at Sullinger as a pro and evaluate him against other pro (or borderline pro) talent.  And what we’ve seen is impressive.  He can play with his back to the basket pretty well.  He attacks the glass.  He gets to the line.  He can hit mid-range...

Celtics Re-Sign Forward Brandon Bass; Danny Ainge Says He Was a 'Top Priority'

Brandon Bass will be back in Celtic green next season. The Celtics officially re-signed Bass on Saturday, although the terms and conditions of the deal were not disclosed per team policy. Bass was a pivotal part of the Celtics' postseason run, a run that had them one game short of the NBA Finals. "Bringing Brandon back to the team was a top priority of ours after the season...

Signing Courtney Lee appears to be hinged on Jason Terry sign-and-trade

At the Boston Celtics' press conference this morning, Danny Ainge announced the re-signing of KG, Chris Wilcox, and Brandon Bass, but couldn't officially announce signing Jeff Green and Jason Terry. "We have some things we are working out with Jason and Jeff, and we hope to resolve those in the near future," said Ainge. The reasoning behind this is financial, according...
