Found August 20, 2013 on NESN.com:

The stations had been the radio home of the Celtics since 2005. “WEEI has had an incredible run with the Boston Celtics, from being a part of their 17th championship banner to the end of the Big 3 era,” Entercom Boston vice president/market manager Jeff Brown said in a statement. “Unfortunately we were unable to come to terms on a new contract moving forward. We thank the entire Celtics organization for our tremendous time together and wish them the best of luck in the future.” It is still uncertain which station will carry Celtics games this upcoming season, according to The Boston Globe’s Chad Finn.

Forcing records is Celtics blasphemy! Or not

Before Rajon Rondo’s season (and for all intents and purposes, the Celtics season) abruptly ended during a Friday night game in Atlanta in late January, much of the discussion around him centered on his over-hyped assist streak.  Remember, the one that saw him continually dish out double-digit assists in consecutive games challenging legendary point guards Magic Johnson and John...

98.5 The Sports Hub could carry Celtics games, even though they never talk NBA

The station's apparent lack of interest in the sport apparently won't stop them from carrying the Celtics games themselves...

Celtics Could Benefit From NBA Luxury Tax Loophole in Long-Term Future

What the Hell Happened To, is usually all about perseverance.  Unheralded guys going the extra mile to make the mighty Boston Celtics.  This week's player, Eric Fernsten, epitomized that.  His entire career, he never quite felt safe enough about his job but it was always like that for him.  It was that way since he began playing basketball seriously the summer before his...

The new CBA may not be so bad for the Celtics

One of the reasons for the lockout in 2011 was that the small market teams wanted to make sure the big market teams wouldn't have a stranglehold on all the talent with the money they can offer, taxes be damned.
