It’s been almost a full calendar year since Danny Ainge and the Celtics stunned the basketball world by hiring Brad Stevens from Butler University.  He’s only been here one full NBA season, although has not even gone through the draft process yet.  However, that doesn’t keep his name from being rumored as a possible replacement for Coach K at Duke: Brad Stevens, Boston Celtics If Duke goes outside of the “family,” look for Stevens to be at the top of the list. No one on this list has accomplished more, and it’s not even close. Sure, Boy Wonder has been in Boston for only one year, but who knows what can happen in the NBA? Let’s say, for argument’s sake, he doesn’t get it done in the next few years with the Celtics. Krzyzewski has a ton of respect for Stevens and could try to persuade him to take over if Stevens isn’t winning enough in the league. Odds: 6-1 I’m hardly shocked that Jeff Goodman would be the one to write this.  I’m even less shocked that there is a picture of Stevens

Weeding out Celtics' interest in Bucks' Sanders

With the No. 6 pick in next month's NBA draft, the Boston Celtics are not going to get a rim-protecting big man. With so few available by way of free agency, swinging a trade for one seems to be the most likely route for Boston. But if there are so few and they are so in demand, why would anyone trade 'em? Usually it's due to a lack of production on the court, too...

Remember Colton Iverson?

On draft day a year ago the Celtics traded cash to the Pacers for the 53rd pick, then used it on 7-footer Colton Iverson from Colorado State.  He didn't make the team coming out of training camp, so Iverson took a trip overseas to play in Turkey for a year.  Now he's back, and looking to snag a spot on Boston's roster in 2014-2015.According to ESPN Boston's Chris...

Rondo Throwback Video: 2010 ECSF G4

One of my favorite YouTube accounts, GDFactoryClips, uploaded a classic performance from Rajon Rondo yesterday. The year was 2010, and the Celtics were making their improbable run to the NBA Finals. After being blown out on their home floor in G3, Boston was in jeopardy of heading back to Cleveland on the brink of elimination. They needed someone to step-up in G4, and that someone...

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.

Report: Dario Saric Would Come To U.S. If Drafted By Celtics, Lakers

A top international player might be coming to the U.S. — but only if he winds up with one of the two winningest teams in NBA history. Dario Saric, a highly rated 6-foot-10, 215-pound forward from Croatia, will leave the Adriatic League for the states if the Boston Celtics or Los Angeles Lakers take him in the 2014 NBA draft, reports David Pick of Eurobasket.

Celtics draft news and notes: Smart likely choice for Celtics, meaning what for Rondo?

I see the Celtics drafting Marcus Smart as a bad thing. Why draft a point guard when you clearly have no need for one? Danny drafts him simply because he wants to deal Rondo. That's my opinion on the matter anyway. CSNNE5. Utah: Julius Randle, F, Kentucky (=) They have a lot of needs, but ultimately settle on drafting the best available player.6. Boston: Marcus Smart, G, Oklahoma...

The Heat join the ranks of the Celtics and the Lakers by making the NBA Finals four years in a row

Let me first start by saying... ugh. The Miami Heat are the first team since 1988 to make the NBA Finals four years in a row joining the ranks of the Celtics and the Lakers. As easy as it is to hate on the Heat, they made May 30th a day to remember for the right reasons. The Donald Sterling saga is nearing a close (in theory). Arguably the biggest black eye the NBA has had since...
