Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Ainge took Sullinger knowing the forward had chronic back trouble and eventually would need surgery. The Celtics boss probably believes more than ever that Sullinger’s value was worth the risk.

Though subsequent double shoulder surgery added to Bradley’s reputation as a player whose hard-boiled style produces injuries, Ainge is pleased with the risk he took. “We also got some great years out of Leon (Powe),” Ainge said yesterday of his 2006 second-round pick, who had two reconstructive knee surgeries by draft night. Herald – Ainge not afraid to take injury risks There is so much luck in drafting players, it’s scary. Not only do you have to project talent, but you have to identify a ...

Video: Boston Celtics 2012-2013 Bloopers and Funny Moments

Stephen A Smith Stirring Things Up Yet Again

We all know that Stephen A  Smith loves the sound of his own voice.   First we had Stephen A predicting a trade of KG, Paul Pierce AND Doc to the Clippers.  Um.  I'm trying to remember the last time a coach was traded.  None come to mind.  Of course he probably meant that the Clippers would trade for KG and the Captain with the assurance that Doc would leave the Celtics...

Doc Rivers’ Return as Celtics Coach Does Little to Clear Up Other Questions Surrounding Team

Doc Rivers will be back on the bench for the Celtics next season. That means, at the very least, that Kevin Garnett‘s departure from Boston is not utterly assured.

Rivers will remain, giving the Celtics a decided tactical advantage on a solid three-quarters of their opponents in the...

Danny Ainge's history of drafting defensive studs, and who the Celtics may draft this year

In recent years, the Celtics have had their finger prints all over the All-Defensive team. Of course a lot of that has been courtesy of Kevin Garnett, who has been either first or second team defense in four of his six seasons with Boston. But a lot of the selections have come from guards drafted during Danny Ainge's tenure. Rajon Rondo (a 2006 Ainge draft selection) has been...
