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.
The Celtics have the 16th pick in the June draft, their highest since they banked on getting a top-two pick in 2007 but settled for fifth and then dealt the pick for Ray Allen. There is major speculation that the club will trade up or down unless a prospect they desire lands in their laps.
ESPN draft gurus Chad Ford and Fran Fraschilla chimed in on the Celtics’ possibilities in this bizarre draft, which could be a gem or a dud.
“Their scouting staff has traditionally done a very good job in this range,” said Fraschilla, the former coach at New Mexico, St. John’s, and Manhattan. “I think they could go either way — they could go development or a European kid, a big kid that’s hanging around and they could stash overseas. Or I think there’s enough of those guys that we talked about, the senior or the guy that can be a rota

Danny Ainge has been around the game of basketball for a long, long time. He enjoyed a successful 14 year career in the Association and when he finally called it quits in 1995 he was able to call himself a two-time NBA champion and a one-time All-Star. Ainge's retirement was short-lived however as the former second round draft choice found himself back on an NBA sideline in 1996...
or "We don't know where we're going, but we're making good time."
I am amazed not to have seen any discussion of the terrible
handicap under which Danny Ainge is working.
Ainge finds himself facing an off-season that proffers wildly disparate
outcomes ranging from adding one rookie to the fourteen players now under
contract, to turning over the majority...
As crazy as it may seem, Danny Ainge just completed his 10th season running the Celtics. He took over the team as they were getting swept in the 2003 playoffs by the Nets, and immediately made his mark that summer, trading all-star Antoine Walker for banged up big man Raef LaFrentz. Not exactly starting off with a bang.
The next four years were bizarre. Slowly but surely Ainge...
If Kevin Garnett plays next season, it looks like he will be doing it bone spurs and all.
According to the Boston Herald, Danny Ainge says Garnett will simply "rest" his left foot and ankle and will not undergo surgery.
I think there was some question whether he was going to have surgery on his foot,” said Ainge. “but the last I heard, which was a few days ago, is...
Though Doc Rivers doesn't seem very high on the Brazilian 7 footer, Fab Melo has intrigued GMs around the league with his size and athleticism.
Earlier this week, Danny Ainge had kind words for Fab Melo. “Fab has really improved, and I think our guys have done a really good job with him,” Ainge said. “I’m excited to see his progress in summer league. He’s really put...

Earlier this season the Celtics met with former Trail Blazer Greg Oden in Waltham to speak about a possible return to the court for the '13-'14 season. Oden, 1st overall pick in the '07 Draft, has only played a mind blowing 82 games in his 5 year career due to his mirage of injuries and setbacks. The C's obviously have had a huge disadvantage when it comes to...

The 2013 NBA Draft Lottery is right around the corner, and while it doesn't directly effect the Boston Celtics, it means that Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers will start to devise a game plan for June 27. There are many different ways that Ainge can use the 16th overall pick. He could trade it for more picks, for talent, or he could utilize it to address a specific team need. But say...

ESPN TV personality Stephen A. Smith's wild claims the past couple of weeks have had a lot of scrutiny going his way.

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...
