Chris Bosh on blood clot diagnosis: ‘I’m lucky to be alive’

Miami Heat star Chris Bosh looks back at the moment he realized there was something seriously wrong with his health and now considers himself incredibly lucky simply to be around to talk about it. Blood clots were discovered in Bosh’s lungs shortly after playing in the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. Given the seriousness and gravity...Read More The post Chris Bosh on blood clot diagnosis...

Rebuilding The Celtics: Fan Favorite Luigi Datome’s Future Uncertain

As the Boston Celtics head into the offseason, NESN.com takes a closer look at each player on the roster in an effort to determine who will stick around for next season and who will be playing elsewhere. Next up: Luigi Datome. It’s hard not to like Gigi Datome. The 27-year-old, man-bunned, coffee-drinking, sharpshooting Italian has all the key ingredients to becoming a cult...

Who was Howie McHugh?

  If you ever wonder where the name "Boston Celtics" came from, you may not have known that Howie McHugh had a lot to do with it.  McHugh was a star hockey goalie at Dartmouth before Celtics' owner Walter Brown hired him as their publicity director. In the summer of 1946, Brown was having a conversation with McHugh on what the name of the new Boston basketball entity should...

Brandon Bass turns 30, is his time in Boston over?

Brandon Bass turned his jersey number (30) on Thursday. There were times this season when he looked ready to emerge as a consistent veteran leader for the Boston Celtics on the court, and there were times when he looked lost and confused as he did in the round one playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This makes it especially hard to speculate whether the Celtics will...

Your Morning Dump… Where you can bank on the C’s trying to trade for DeMarcus Cousins

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

A Collection of Creatively Hateful Tweets to Kelly Olynyk

A plethora of fans across America have expressed their recent dismay with what has transpired over the past couple days between Boston Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk and Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love. Although Olynyk does have his backers who claim that Olynyk’s dismantling of Love’s arm is a part of the game, many have expressed vitriol disgust due to the fact that Love...

Celtics questions going into the offseason

What a year. Big time trades, crazy games, a fan-base unsure whether to hope for losses or wins, this Celtics team was extremely interesting. A year after winning 25 games the Celtics gave every fan hope for the future, and got to measure themselves against the best, which is more than anyone can ask for. However, the road is still a long way from being completed. This was a perfect...

Where do the Boston Celtics go from here?

The Boston Celtics’ improbable playoff run came to an abrupt conclusion on Sunday afternoon. The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Celtics, 101-93, on their home floor, completing the series sweep many had predicted. I didn’t think the Cavaliers would sweep the Celtics. Maybe that was a product of being too close to the action. I wouldn’t call myself a Celtic fan, but I am...

Celtics Free Agents: Who’s Coming Back, Who’s Heading Out?

As the Boston Celtics players return home for the offseason, Danny Ainge & Co. are preparing to get to work. This is shaping up to be another busy summer for the Celtics, as all signs point to Ainge making another bid to land the kind of big-time name the team failed to bring in in last year. Before we worry about any potential new faces, though, let’s take a look at Boston’s...

No beef with Boston

I have no problem with how the Boston Celtics played in their first round series against the Cavaliers. Yes, they were dirty. Yes, they were underhanded. Yes, Kelly Olynyk yanked Kevin Love’s shoulder out of its socket and Isaiah Thomas grabbed at an inbounds pass while it was still in LeBron James’ hands. Yes, Jae Crowder, he who would not be intimidated, clobbered LeBron...

Boston Celtics: Future bright after playoff exit

The Boston Celtics surprising trip to the playoffs is over as quickly as it could have been.  LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers made short work of Brad Stevens’ young crew, defeating the Celtics in four straight games.  It’s a disappointing end to an otherwise successful year for Boston.  The team rebounded from a dismal 2013-14 campaign, even as general manager Danny...

J.R. Smith suspended two games for hitting Jae Crowder

As if the day following the Cavaliers finishing the sweep over the Boston Celtics could not get any worse, the NBA has announced that JR Smith has been suspended two games. This coming after the news that Kevin Love will miss the entire upcoming Eastern Conference Semifinal series with a dislocated shoulder. During Sunday’s game and after an already very physical couple of quarters...

Sources: Celtics to offer 1st round pick to any team willing to take Wallace

Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders has a few tidbits on the Celtics off-season plans. Let’s start with Gerald Wallace: Gerald Wallace remains the lone veteran contract Boston would like to move and sources say the Celtics would be willing to part with one of the half dozen or so first-round draft picks they have amassed to move him this off-season.

Kevin Love injury a powerful argument for playoff reform

If you were to ask 100 people in a room about the length of the NBA’s first-round playoff series, you’d get a reasonable number of responses advocating a return to the best-of-five format: This Love/Olynyk incident is a reminder of why the NBA needs to go back to best-of-5. A meaningless game led to an unnecessary injury. — Llama Buffalo Fan (@chrisskreager) April 26...

Sooooo Darko is having fun post-NBA! Darko Milicic was filmed having himself a blast. And by “having himself a blast,” I mean going shirtless at what appears to be a family function, chugging brew with no hands, singing out loud and making sure his tattoos are also guzzling beer.

Evan Turner defends Kelly Olynyk for Kevin Love arm crank

Most people are in agreement that Kelly Olynyk fouled Kevin Love intentionally and committed a dirty or “bush league” play on him during Game 4 of the Cavaliers-Celtics series on Sunday.
