Is Center really the biggest problem the Celtics have?

Most Celtics fans will tell you that the first problem we need to address with this team is getting a “rim-protecting center.” I was one of those guys, but it got me wondering how Tyler Zeller stacks up statistically among some of the other centers in the game. So I took all of the centers on current playoff teams in the East Coast and compared their body of work to Tyler Zeller...

Tyler Zeller among league's most underrated players?

Seven months ago, Tyler Zeller was trade filler, valued simply as a shedded contract that allowed the Cavaliers to bring LeBron James and Kevin Love to Cleveland. Things have changed a bit since then. The Celtics acquired Zeller, shooting guard Marcus Thornton and a Cleveland first-round pick last July 10 in a three-team deal with the Cavs and Nets. Though Zeller averaged 6.9 points...

Tyler Zeller’s double-double in Orlando

There wasn’t much to cheer about during last night’s loss in Orlando, but Tyler Zeller did continue to play well. Zeller had 22 points and 10 rebounds in the Celtics’ 100-95 loss to the Magic.

Tyler Zeller discusses the wedding present of getting traded to the Celtics

Emily Austen was able to interview new Celtics center Tyler Zeller. Doesn't sound like he's down about missing out on playing with LeBron and the Cavs. Kind of surprised that the Celtics had a press conference for Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, and the immortal Keith Bogans last Summer, but they have yet to introduce Zeller, Marcus Thornton, or Evan Turner.
