Are more moves coming for the Celtics?

The Celtics as currently constructed don't make total sense. There's a surplus of guards, a ton of bigs, and the notable absence of a go-to scoring wing. And the elusive "rim protector," though Amir Johnson does get us moving in the right direction on that front. Another move has to be in the works, right? According to one agent, Celtics won't be following through on all their "done...

The veteran power forward agreed to leave Toronto and stay within the Atlantic Division on Wednesday.

Your Morning Dump… Where some see fireworks, others see duds

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. After Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck’s promise of “fireworks” last summer resulted in Marcus Smart, James Young and Tyler Zeller, it’s difficult to project exactly what the Celtics can expect from...

What Tyler Zeller's Most Improved Player vote says about award ballots

Tyler Zeller is an afterthought to most people whose last names aren't Zeller. Sure, it feels like half the NBA is made up of Zellers, Plumlees, Morrises and Hansbroughs, but those aren't the guys winning awards. Unless you're talking about Most Improved Player. And unless you're talking about random, homer votes. And why do we bring this up? Because Zeller finished 11th in the recently...

Tyler Zeller and Jae Crowder both receive votes for 2015 NBA Most Improved Player award

The NBA officially named Chicago Bulls' shooting guard Jimmy Butler the 2014-15 Kia NBA Most Improved Player today. Butler finished the season averaging over 20 points per game, up from 13.1 ppg last season. Already one of the game's top defenders, he added much needed offense for Chicago this year, who had been struggling to find a second option to Derrick Rose, and is well deserving...

Celtics’ Tyler Zeller Receives First-Place Vote For NBA’s Most Improved Player

Tyler Zeller’s strides this season did not go unnoticed — so much so that one person dubbed him the most improved player in the entire NBA. The third-year center for the Boston Celtics finished 10th in the voting for the NBA Most Improved Player Award, but that wasn’t the surprising part. Rather, it was noteworthy that Zeller was one of nine players...

Can you guess who gave Tyler Zeller a 1st place “Most Improved” vote?

Chicago’s Jimmy Butler rightfully won the Most Improved Player award. He got 92 first place votes and 535 points overall to beat out Draymond Green, another worthy contender, pretty easily. Scanning through the list of vote-getters, I was struck to see a Celtic on there. Tyler Zeller. Now, Zeller had a nice year and he certainly improved over last year, but MOST IMPROVED? You’d...

Roy Hibbert: Boston Celtics a potential trade suitor?

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsRoy Hibbert had yet another disappointing season in 2014-15 with the Indiana Pacers, but he still showed the ability to be one of the NBA’s top post defenders. Indiana doesn’t sound like they’re too interested in keeping Hibbert around next season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them look to trade him assuming he chooses to opt in to his...

Why Tyler Zeller should be getting fed the ball more often in Game 3

Never once thought I'd be saying this during a playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, but it's time to start getting Tyler Zeller the rock more often. Through two games in this first round playoff series, he's 8-for-13 from the field with 17 points. There are points to be had in the paint against the Cavaliers, and the Celtics simply aren't exploiting it enough. Amazing...

Reviewing Tristan Thompson's back breaking offensive rebounds

A friend of mine was unable to watch last night's game, and asked me this morning about what happened past the box score. After ranting about a series of dicey calls by the refs, I began to discuss about the seemingly back breaking rebounds, mostly secured by Tristan Thompson.  Like anyone who got to watch the game, the rebounding discrepancy (8) wasn't really the issue, it...

WATCH: Tyler Zeller Dunks, Embarrasses Matthew Dellavedova

Tyler Zeller is not known as a high-flying, backboard-shattering dunker. Fortunately for the Boston Celtics center, Matthew Dellavedova is not an elite rim-protector. Early in the first quarter of Sunday’s matchup, the 7-foot Zeller took flight over the 6’4″ Cleveland Cavaliers guard, who turtled away from his ill-fated blocked attempt and put himself on a poster.

But as the younger Zeller detailed Thursday in a column for The Players’ Tribune, their childhood matchups were a different story. “A lot of people want to make the sibling rivalry...

BOSTON — Roy Hibbert is a two-time All-Star, but the best big man on the court the last two times his Indiana Pacers have played the Boston Celtics has been Tyler Zeller. The Celtics center went a combined 16-of-19 from the floor over those two most recent contests, including an 8-for-9 showing Wednesday night that produced a team-high 19 points in a 100-87 win for Boston. ...

Coming into the season, C's fans had little to look forward to. They were banking on questions that had slim chances to be answered. Would Rajon Rondo return to elite status?
