Celtics Morning Joe: Where Leon Powe should be the next assistant coach for the Celtics, but he wants to be an owner

I've said in the past, that the Celtics need a bigs coach. Someone that can encourage them, teach them, and to be someone that can be an ear. Leon Powe's career's was cut short because of a knee injury, and I think he's the kind of guy that the Celtics need to teach their current group of bigs.Powe is ambitious, but with something else.

SQ13#54—The 2008 Champions Lacked Athleticism

Of the 15 man playoff roster taken into the 2008 Finals by the Boston Celtics only Rajon Rondo and Tony Allen were above average NBA athletes.  Now “average” NBA athlete is a pretty awesome superlative; but think about it, this Championship team ran slower and jumped lower than most of the teams they decimated in April, May, and June.  So just how did they beat the snot out...

Sometimes I think back to that celebration on June 17, 2008.  The little green and gold and black confetti falling on the Garden floor.  I see an elated Kevin Garnett bellowing "Anything Is Possible."  I see an almost-childlike Ray Allen gleefully skipping across the parquet.  I see Glen Davis and Leon Powe and Paul Pierce huddled up yelling "Hoo-rah, Celtics,...

The Celtics need a second round point guard this draft

Draymond Green, Chandler Parsons, Lance Stephenson. In addition to playing key roles on playoff teams this season, these three have another thing in common; all of them were selected in the second round of previous NBA Drafts. Due to the rookie payscale, second round picks are given very low salaries when they enter the league so finding a contributor after the 30th pick can provide...

It could be an injury riddled star giving his fans one last moment to remember him by, Brandon Roy erasing a 23 point deficit against Dallas, which will always...
