I got to Boston early in my career; our team was very young and I think we were mostly expected to be competitive in the league.

Celtics drop to #14 in ESPN power rankings

It's Monday, so that means ESPN's weekly Marc Stein NBA power rankings are out.  In this edition the 11-9 Celtics find themselves at #14.  Despite two easy wins, and just a single one-point OT loss on the road, Boston falls a spot from #13 last week.  I still don't understand Stein's infatuation with the 10-9 Bucks, who again rank several places ahead of the C...

C's improving defense may just be a mirage

Locking down Philly isn't exactly "impressive." There's been a lot of talk the past few days about the Celtics recent improvements on the defensive end.  After giving up 100 points or more in 7 of their first 14 games, Boston has now held their last 6 opponents under the century mark.  However, there is a distinct possibility that this has very little to do with...
