The trade for Bill Walton put the Boston Celtics over the Los Angeles Lakers.
The greatest team in the history of the Boston Celtics was the 1985-’86 squad. This edition boasted one of the deepest frontcourts of all time with Robert Parish at center, Kevin McHale at power forward, and Larry Bird at small forward in the starting lineup.
There was one offseason move that put the Celtics over the top of the league. After the Celtics lost to the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals in 1985, President Red Auerbach knew he had to upgrade the bench. The starting unit played over 2,500 minutes during the season and they were exhausted when they had to play the Lakers who were bent on exacting revenge for letting the series in 1984 slip away. The Celtics sent Cedric Maxwell to the Los Angeles Clippers for 6-foot-11-inch’Bill Walton.
Walton was an extraordinarily gifted passer and he had put up Hall of Fame statistics throughout his career. The issue with Walton was he could not stay on the ...

Green missed all of last season after a physical exam revealed an aortic aneurysm. He underwent surgery and became a free agent before signing Wednesday.

Boston Celtics press release:
The Boston Celtics announced today that they have signed free agent forward Jeff Green. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“We are thrilled to be able to have Jeff back with the Celtics,” said Danny Ainge, Celtics President of Basketball Operations. “Jeff’s versatility on offense and ability to guard players out on the perimeter...
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.
Without diving into all the other...

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...
The Celtics officially signed Jeff Green, more than a month after coming to terms on a contract.
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...
Before deciding to sign with the Boston Celtics, Jason Terry spent eight years with the Dallas Mavericks. 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...
I finally had the opportunity last week to see the much heralded documentary "Once Brothers." 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...
