The Boston Celtics were able to squeeze into the playoffs with a 40-42 record last year and land a 7th place spot in the Eastern Conference. Their season came to an abrupt end however, when they were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.

Should Avery Bradley be the next Celtics captain?

The Boston Celtics have never gone a season without having a captain. Since the departure of Rajon Rondo, a replacement has not been named.Brad Stevens did not name official captains for his Butler teams, and seems to have preferred developing leadership naturally rather than by declaring a leader preseason.

Marcus Smart is a big fan of Terry Rozier

I see you TerryWhen the Celtics first drafted Terry Rozier, many of us thought his talents were possibly a little redundant for this team. We already have Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, two defense first guards that aren't as feared on the offensive end as the defensive.
