Found July 27, 2012 on Red's Army:
According to our most recent poll, 94% of Celtics fans are pleased with the team’s roster acquisitions this off-season. We’re not the only ones. Moke Hamilton of Sheridan Hoops ranks the Celtics the 2nd biggest winner in free agency: Danny Ainge has done a masterful job this offseason. His first move was agreeing to an extension with Kevin Garnett the day before Garnett would have hit the open market. And though he failed at re-signing Ray Allen, the acquisition of Jason Terry will take the sting away. That’s especially true since Terry is comfortable in a sixth man role (Allen wasn’t) and is probably better at creating his own shot off the dribble than Allen is. Ainge also managed to acquire Courtney Lee from the Houston Rockets in a sign-and-trade deal, so they’re set at the two-guard spot. … By re-signing Garnett, Green and Brandon Bass, snagging Terry off of the open market, executing a sign-and-trade for Lee, and drafting both Sullinger and Fab, the Celtics are a deeper, younge...

Looks like the Celtics weren't that interested in retaining Stiemsma

Boston Herald: 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...

Danny Ainge content, but won’t close the door on more acquisitions

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...

Video: Jason Terry thrilled to play with Boston Celtics, seems awesome

One underrated aspect of Danny Ainge’s offseason manna from heaven is that, just like last year, he managed to stock the roster with quality human beings who are likely to form a cohesive locker room and maybe even help several elderly women cross the street. Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger and Chris Wilcox make a second unit that will have considerably...

Maybe Danny isn't so bad after all

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...

Big 3 Era taxing for Celtics, but it could have been worse

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: The Celtics...

What the Hell Happened to...Scott Wedman?

This week in What the Hell Happened To, we remember yet another in an endlessly long line of players in Celtics' history who came to the team after being an All Star elsewhere and fulfilled the dream to win an NBA title.  Scott Wedman was acquired by the Celtics in what turned out to be a steal, a trade for first round pick Darren Tillis.  He had come to the Celtics as one...

RIP Reggie Lewis 7/27/1993

Once again, we look at this day in Celtics history as a day of sadness and pride. One of the quickest and most herky jerky players in the league. He was supposed to carry the torch after Larry. From Celtics.com July 27, 1993 - Reggie Lewis was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m. at Waltham-Weston hospital after collapsing while practicing at Brandeis University earlier in the day. RIP...

Mavericks’ O.J. Mayo Must Take on Role of Jason Terry

O.J. Mayo signed a two-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks last Monday. The deal includes an option for the second year. If Mayo performs well in his assumed role in place of the departed Jason Terry, it will be hard for the Mavs not to exercise that option.   But in order for Mayo to [...] [[ This is a content summary only.
