WYC GROUSBECK RUMORS

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...

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?
