Wyc Grousbeck: Celtics Tried For Fireworks, Have To Take ‘Patient Route’

Majority team owner Wyc Grousbeck spoke about the Boston Celtics offseason plans in early March, suggesting that “there could be some fireworks” come June. June has passed, and so has July, and the Celtics still find themselves lacking star power in a league driven by talent.

Celtics Owner ‘Rejects’ Notion Of Tanking, Hoping For ‘Building’ Season

The 2014 Boston Celtics offseason will be defined by “fireworks” — or, as it’s looking like so far, lack thereof. That term has been written and discussed countless time since Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck first uttered it back in March, and during that time, Grousbeck believes his words might have been twisted a bit. “No, if you go back and look at what I said, I said we...

Your Morning Dump… Where an impatient Wyc Grousbeck defends his “fireworks” comment

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.  But Grousbeck isn’t backing down. He is bullish on his young coach, Brad Stevens, disdainful of tanking talk for 2014-15, and does not regret linking the parquet and pyrotechnics with a quote that will live...

Let’s take a moment to laugh at the Lakers

Danny Ainge and the Celtics didn’t exactly deliver on the fireworks promised by owner Wyc Grousbeck this owner, but at least we’re not the Lakers: What are the Lakers doing? Fewer contracts raised more eyebrows around the Las Vegas Summer League than this one. The Lakers continue to overvalue their own players. They seem determined to languish in mediocrity. This is Millsap money...

It's Lottery Day! Owner Wyc Grousbeck discusses what it means for the Celtics' future
