Hey gang! Let's do our own #NBAmovies

In case you missed it, over the past few days, for some reason several of the NBA teams' official twitter accounts have been posting spoof movie posters including their own team. While I'm still waiting for Woj to report on it, heavy speculation is that the reason this is happening is 'because it's mid-August, and there's next to nothing to talk about.' First...

After dumping a bucket of ice cold water on his boss’ head, Rondo is sure to get dealt at the earliest opportunity. In all seriousness, Rondo joined Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge on Thursday to help team co-owner Wyc Grousbeck...

The season is saved: Boston signs MacGruber!

Oh, you naysayers are going to have a harder time saying nay now. In what may quite possibly be the best signing of his professional career, Danny Ainge has brought in MacGruber.Playoffs? How about winning every title from now until ever? I mean, MacGruber typically only has 20 seconds to work with, but the shot clock in the NBA is 24 seconds. Can you image what he can do with an...

Who wants to see Celtics dump ice water on their heads? Danny Ainge, Larry Bird and more!

Finally what you've all been waiting for.There is this thing called the ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) Ice Bucket challenge going on right now. It's pretty low key so I wouldn't be surprised if you haven't heard of it. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a nerve disorder and can cause paralysis in the later stages.

Pistons' Monroe potential 2015 target for Celtics

When you look at the most significant deals made by Danny Ainge in shaping this storied franchise, circumstances, as much as the Celtics mystique, worked in his favor. The Seattle SuperSonics (now Oklahoma City Thunder) were in salary-dump mode in 2007, which allowed the Celtics to pull off a draft-night trade for Ray Allen. Kevin Garnett spent more than a decade in Minnesota before...

Your Morning Dump… Where we all need to remember that sh*t happens

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. Grousbeck freely admits he is not patient. “How happy do I look?” he said. “We were all patient, everybody, the fans were patient in the early 2000s and we have to believe they know how to build in the NBA...

Ainge "disciplined" on trade market, not worried about impatience of fan base

The last time Danny Ainge oversaw a rebuild, it took four years. He took over a Celtics team with Paul Pierce, Antoine Walker and not much else in 2003, and began stockpiling assets -- via both the draft and trades -- until he had enough to pull off trades for both Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in 2007.This time, it appears that some media and fans are expecting things to happen a...

Danny Ainge, Celtics remain patient, disciplined

No amount of chips — and there have been some impressive stacks in play across the league — have been able to pry Kevin Love loose from Minnesota. That could change once the 30-day moratorium on the new contracts of Cleveland’s Andrew Wiggins or Chicago’s Doug McDermott passes, but for now the Timberwolves power forward is in the place he least wants to be. And the Celtics...

CelticsLife Mailbag: What else does Danny Ainge have up his sleeve?

With the Celtics' off-season seemingly dying down (or maybe it just never got started?), I figured it would be a good time to answer a few twitter questions from the readers. More of a tweet-bag than a mailbag, but tweet-bag hasn't quite become a mainstream phrase yet, so I'm sticking with mailbag.Thanks to everyone who wrote in. Rondo related questions@CelticsLife we...

Danny Ainge, Celtics Playing It Safe With Offseason Moves (Podcast)

If you’re not a fan of the Boston Celtics, you could say this has been a boring offseason for the green team. If you are a fan of the Celtics, it’s been downright depressing. It has become increasingly obvious that Kevin Love is not walking through that door, unless by “that door” you mean the one leading to the visitor’s locker room at TD Garden. The closest the Celtics...

Can Evan Turner turn things around with Boston?

The Boston Celtics are in the middle of a major rebuilding process, and they decided to take a chance on signing former No. 2 overall pick Evan Turner. Turner had a very productive first half of last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, but then completely disappointed in the second half of the year with the Indiana Pacers. Celtics coach Brad Stevens has had success in the past helping...

Danny Ainge has moved on from Kevin Love, and so should we

I honestly gave up hope on Love once the Celtics drafted Marcus Smart, and once James signed with Cleveland. It was a nice thought for a while. Love and Rondo connected at the Red Sox game. Love also took pictures at Red's statue. It was a dream, and the deal could have happened. It had some teeth. But now, Danny is willing to aid the Cavs and Wolves in a potential deal. The...

The Kevin Love sweepstakes are heating up, which isn’t good for Danny Ainge and his Celtics. Boston at one point seemed to be in decent position to land the 3-time all-star, but with Cleveland and Chicago upping their offers, it has left Boston in the dust. “The more teams step up and show interest in […]

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.

Ainge believes Avery Bradley will play a key part in Boston's quest of banner 18

I don't disagree with Ainge, and it seems like Danny pulled off a solid re-signing. When you see Hayward and Parsons being over paid this summer. You have to give Ainge some kudos there. But why can't he say that about Rondo? Because Rondo will is an upcoming free agent in 2015? It's been years since Ainge has used banner 18 and Rondo in the same sentence. Call me what...
