Larranaga had been head coach of Erie in the D-League.about 9 hours ago via webReplyRetweetFavorite@WojYahooNBAAdrian WojnarowskiAfter reportedly hiring Jay Larranaga on Monday, the Boston Celtics have accomplished what I’m sure was one of their top priorities this offseason: signing a coach with a DraftExpress page.The son of James Larranaga, who’s most known for taking George Mason to the Final Four, Jay spent the past two seasons coaching the Erie Bayhawks of the NBA D-League, leading them to a 60-40 record with two consecutive playoff appearances. According to Cornell head coach Bill Courtney, under whom Larranaga worked briefly as an assistant, Larranaga is known as a skill developer.“You’ll see a lot of guys get better (under Larranaga),” Courtney said. “That’s his strength.”(Note: I just closed my eyes, imagined Avery Bradley with an impressive skill level and giggled uncontrollably.)Larrana...

The offseason was reminiscent of a storm brewing off a shoreline, that shoreline being the Boston harbor. Danny Ainge was able to collect pieces that will have the Boston Celtics in a better position than last year. This is remarkable considering last year’s team lost to the Miami Heat in seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let me tell you a little story about me.
It was my junior year and I was co-captain of the Emerson College men's basketball team (the same team, incidentally, that produced Sam Presti and Rob Hennigan. Our career paths kinda went in different directions, huh? Anyway... ). The team, historically, had sucked. I mean, REALLY, sucked. Like Bobcats bad.
But that year...
Two of the latest matchup winners featured two posterizations of franchise players as the opposition. Avery Bradley’s ownage of Kevin Durant and Brandon Bass’ humiliation of Dwyane Wade in Game 7 both advanced quite easily to the sweet sixteen. Today’s matchup features one of the few compilations, but it absolutely had to make it since it was huge at the time. Paul...

In those eight years, Terry won a NBA championship and was consistently one of the best sixth men in the league. Those credentials are nothing to scoff at. There are plenty of players in the league that would love to have a NBA championship and be regarded as one of the best...

It aired months ago on ESPN, but I'll be honest with you with the exception of Celtics games, I try to watch as little ESPN as possible. One thing that ESPN is good for is it's 30 for 30 documentaries and "Once Brothers" was tremendous. I highly recommend it...

Being that all 403 of these games took place during the regular season, this doesn’t represent the most memorable span of JET’s impressive career. I mean, seriously… when’s the last time you came across any sort of reference to...
