About Avery Bradley: Believe it or not, Bradley was the top ranked player in the 2009 High School class, ahead of future #1 pick (and $80 million man) John Wall. But a pedestrian Freshman season at Texas (11.6 PPG, 2.9 RPG, 2.1 APG) caused his draft stock to plummet, as he fell to #16 in the 2010 draft before the Celtics pounced. Bradley was stapled to the bench for nearly all of his rookie season, playing a grand total of 162 minutes during the 2010-11 campaign. It wasn't until about halfway through the 2011-12 season that he really got his opportunity — and boy did he capitalize. Bradley shot 50% from the field and 41% from three in '11-12, and began displaying elite defensive abilities as he locked up opposing guards.

Marc Stein ranks Celtics 4th worst team in basketball; "They have to trade Rondo"

Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images Earlier this summer I did a fairly comprehensive breakdown of the NBA, ranking all 30 teams after a summer of moves. I put the Celtics 22nd, 9th in the East, expecting them (if they avoid a major move) to finish right around 30 wins this season. However, Marc Stein of ESPN disagrees pretty strongly, instead putting the Cs among the very worst...

Celtics Take a Duck Boat Tour

When Should Rajon Rondo Return?

The NBA season is still more than a month away, and I can’t take my eyes off of my left knee. Specifically, the four inch scar that begins at the bottom of my kneecap and the two small hole-sized scars on either side.   It’s amazing what little remains of the two surgeries on my knee. Sure, it won’t ever be 100 percent healthy again, but I’m still amazed at how far we...
