Video: Tyler Zeller talks playing center for the Celtics and working out with Rajon Rondo

Tyler Zeller has a strong shot of starting for the Celtics this season. There will be some strong competition for Zeller though as I'm sure Sully, Olynyk and Bass are all looking to start as well. And then of course there's Vitor. Right now I'd say Zeller has the edge due to being a 7 footer, but we haven't even started camp yet, so lots of things can change. Working...

What do the Celtics overall ratings look like in NBA2K15?

In the last few days 2KSports and NBA 2K15 have been dropping player’s overall ratings for NBA 2K15 and although it isn’t as much of an event as when EA Sports releases the Madden rankings, it’s still fun to see where this year's Boston Celtics rank overall.

Start your day off with Team USA nailing the shmoney dance

It was never even close. Team USA dismantled Serbia yesterday 129-92 in the Fiba World Cup Final. In fact, throughout the tournament Team USA outscored its opponents by nearly 300 points, which was, as Tom Haberstroh pointed out, good for +40 per 48 minutes. But as impressive as they were on the court, they might've actually been more dominant on the podium. The national anthem...
