Greg Stiemsma, who agreed to a one-year deal worth $3 million with Minnesota earlier this week, said tonight that his experience as a Celtic last season was invaluable.
That said, business was business. The Celtics weren’t prepared to offer the young center anything more than the $1 million qualifying offer they made to him last month.
“I’m not surprised. I...
I spent the latter half of yesterday trying to hitch-hike to Danny Ainge’s house so I could hand-deliver a bouquet of roses and kiss him on his pretty little feet. Not really, but you can imagine what it would have been like if I did.Ainge had a creatively awesome offseason, rebuilding Boston’s bench (damn near from scratch, people!) while establishing a youthful identity that’s...
The Celtics generate a lot of revenue. As a big market team with a massive following, they make a bunch of money… and they will spend it on their roster if they have to.
Mark Deeks at ShamSports.com put together a very comprehensive listing of every dollar every team paid in the luxury tax in the nine years it’s been in use. Here are the relevant highlights:
In looking at this season's schedule, the first thing I did was to circle a few dates of key matchups. Of course, there is the Celtics at Heat opener at 8:00 PM on TNT. Ray's first visit back to Boston will be on January 27. Miami visits the Garden again on March 18 and the Celtics finish the series at Miami on April 12.
Perk and the Thunder visit Boston on November...
It's no secret that Danny Ainge is a controversial figure in Boston. The Perk trade had people calling for his head. The constant Rondo trade rumors the last two seasons had people questioning his ability as a general manager. However, I've always thought Danny was a good manager and knew what was best for the Celtics. He has proved it this off-season.
Someone as brash...
Jared Sullinger, aka Sully, aka Smokey the Swag Bear... whatever you want to call him now, you'll be calling him a Celtics starter at some point this season. You can book that.
If Keyon Dooling's lone contribution to the Celtics last season was his role in the "Flexin'" craze, his impact would have been considerable. The dance, which Dooling and Marquis Daniels helped popularize during the playoffs, brought smiles to the faces of Celtics fans and annoyed the heck out of the other team's fans. In other words, Flexin' did exactly...

The big names naturally attracted most of the attention when they switched teams this offseason. Stars sell tickets, and NBA Finals hopefuls were thrilled to add to their squads with proven players.
