Celtics owner on offseason: 'We hoped to make bigger moves'

The NBA’s offseason has featured many star players switching teams, confirming that basketball has the most exciting free agency period in sports. One team that has been surprisingly quiet in the trade and free agent markets this summer has been the Boston Celtics, and majority owner Wyc Grousbeck admitted to WEEI’s Rob Bradford that he hoped his team could have made more progress...

Celtics owner: 'We had definitely hoped to try to make bigger moves'

The best place for Celtics news these days seems to come from following the Red Sox. After running into Kris Humphries at the MLB All-Star Game, our own Rob Bradford bumped into C’s owner Wyc Grousbeck at Fenway Park. Grousbeck, of course, provided the now infamous “fireworks” comment earlier this year, and he’s just as disappointed as most Celtics fans about the team...

Wyc Grousbeck on lack of fireworks: 'We hoped to make bigger moves'

If you're like me, you're sick and tired of hearing about fireworks in relation to the Celtics.The whole thing started in March, when Celtics' owner Wyc Grousbeck said that he loved how the Cs were positioned, and forecasted some "fireworks" come June. We’re a patient group. We will take a multiyear plan if that’s what it takes. But I think this June there...

Wyc on fireworks: It takes two…

WEEI caught up with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck at Fenway Park: “We had definitely hoped to try to make bigger moves this offseason, to be honest,” he said. “Having said that, it takes two partners to make a trade, so we focused on longterm trying to build the club.

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. This is Millsap money...

Celtics owner: 'Trade season is not over yet.'

Kevin Love isn't here.  Rajon Rondo is still here.  The only moves the Celtics made yesterday were drafting a pair of guys with their own two picks.  If this is disappointing to you, don't worry.  Trades could still happen.  Case in point: When Boston acquired Kevin Garnett seven years ago, the date was July 31. Last night Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck spoke on the...

No Kevin Love, and Rondo is still in green

Nothing big happened Thursday night, nothing for anyone out there. Unless you count the Heat deal that gave them Napier, to please LeBron. That move could mean something for him and the Heat. As for the Celtics Thursday night. The fireworks are still locked up in the storage room next to the janitors closet at the Celtics practice facility. For me fireworks could mean a lot of things...

Celtics owner says Rondo is"killing it", looking like the old Rondo

Wyc Grousbeck said everything I wanted to hear. Saying it, doesn't always mean it's fact. But I do feel confident in the Celtics if they are pursing Kevin Love.
