Taking a look at Brad Stevens' trade value

Last week on Boston.com a Globe reader by the name Ted F marinated on Brad Stevens the trade asset for a while. His conclusion? The only players in the NBA he'd deal Bradley Kent Stevens for were Anthony Davis and ... that's it. That's Ted F's whole wish list for Stevens. No Lebron, no Steph, no Harden. Not the first pick in the draft. If Ted F was the Celts' GM: you better dangle...

Uncertain future for Chris Babb

The NBA is a business and over the last two seasons, the Celtics have employed virtually every type of player the league has to offer. They housed a former champion in Tayshaun Prince and a past college star in Evan Turner, just to name a few. The majority of guys who spent time in green these past years were relatively established role players, and for them, it was business as...

Surprisingly Delladova only received a common foul. He slipped out and did not speak with reporters after the game. However, his rapid departure didn't exempt him from being a postgame topic of discussion."That's just not a basketball play," Korver said of Delladova. "You look at the replay... It's just not a basketball play. Yeah. I expected it to be physical, but when it has to...

Jared Sullinger wishes you would believe in him

[begin sarcasm]No matter how many years Jared Sullinger remains at an inflated playing weight, people keep thinking he will continue weighing in heavy. No matter how many conditioning-related injuries he suffers, people keep assuming he will deal with more conditioning-related injuries. People can be so ridiculous to assume that the past is a reasonable predictor of the present....

With LeBron's Cavs handily dismissing the Hawks, what could the Celtics have done against rest of East?

Through two games in the Eastern Conference Finals LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have been far too much for the Atlanta Hawks to handle. Many were expecting Atlanta to challenge the defense of Cleveland more than their previous opponents. Having more shooters and good ball movement was expected to create more spacing than what Boston and Chicago had to offer in the previous...

Eye on the Draft: RJ Hunter

Despite constant roster changes throughout the season, the youthful 2014-2015 Boston Celtics exceeded expectations under sophomore coach Brad Stevens through hustle, hard work and effort.

The Incredibleness of Strat-O-Matic Basketball

Long before the cutting-edge technology video games of today, and slightly before the inaugural Lakers vs Celtics and the NBA Playoffs rolled out for Sega Genesis, there was a board game that if you were a basketball fan, you absolutely had to play.  It involved dice, player cards and game cards.  And it was the most realistic thing going.  Do you remember Strat-O-Matic basketball...

Eye on the Draft: Bobby Portis

The Boston Celtics have been trying to fill the leadership role on their team ever since trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett in 2013. In the case of Garnett, a lot of that leadership came from his attitude, work ethic, and his voice on the court. Some of the same qualities can be seen in 20 year old Arkansas power forward Bobby Portis as he enters this year's NBA Draft. Should...

Kevin Garnett: Emasculating Joakim Noah since 2007

In Bleacher Report's Howard Beck's Oral History of Kevin Garnett, KG fans are given a taste of some of the behind the scenes stuff we pray we get more of over the years. Personally, if I ever find out what he allegedly said to LeBron James in the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals, I imagine I'll be happier and more fulfilled than the guy who discovered the Dead Sea Scrolls.
