The NBA released its full schedule on Tuesday night, and as expected, it's pretty jam-packed with games and travel. That's what happens when you have to fit 66 games into just more than four months of the calendar. The Celtics, like every other team will be quite busy. The C's already knew that they'd open the season on Dec. 25 in New York with a Christmas Day showdown with the New York Knicks, but they now know the rest of the gauntlet. A couple of highlights include a pair of games with the rival Los Angeles Lakers with the first...

Report: Ainge offered Rondo for Stephen Curry

Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News reports: By the way, this is probably why Boston recently contacted the Warriors to talk about the outlines of a deal potentially centering around Rajon Rondo-for-Curry (which I believe the GSWs flat-out rejected)… If Boston got Curry, the Celtics would be in position to flip him straight to New Orleans in a Paul package.

Video: New Celtics ticket ad knocks Heat and Lakers fans

The Celtics are not quite the championship contender they were from 2007 to 2010, but they still have a strong brand as a very good team of tough veterans. It's a style that matches their city, too, or at least its image of itself. On top of that, that toughness also helps Boston stand out from more casual arena environments like Los Angeles and Miami. Those franchises have...
