A picture a day to keep the summer doldrums away- 8/29/15

We all know Paul Pierce is a Celtics legend, and until recently, was only known as being a Celtic.  So you could imagine if this was a Nets or Wizards or Clippers shirt.  But the Nuggets?  This picture is actually from Pierce's 1998 draft workout with the Nuggets.  Denver instead opted to select Raef LaFrentz.  The Celtics gladly scooped up Pierce at #10.Each day in August...

Which Boston Celtic is most likely to underachieve?

The Boston Celtics have high expectations this season, but that doesn't mean every player on the team will live up to them on an individual level. Here's a look at a few players who could fall short and disappoint in the 2015-16 season, including James Young, who had a wildly discouraging go at the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas Summer Leagues. Here's the consensus from ESPN's Celtics...

KC Jones and Larry Bird, at a Celtics' championship parade. As good as the 1980s Celtics were, I feel they would've won more titles in another decade (90s or 00s).  The East was really tough for so many of those years.Each day in August, Celticslife will post a Celtics-related picture, one you may possibly have never even seen before.

In 2013-14, the Celtics went 25-57.  To the great surprise of just about everyone, the C's increased their win total by 15 games last year and finished 40-42.  Is it possible Boston could take a similar leap once again in 2015-16?  A few ESPN forecasters seem to think so.In their Team Turnaround poll picking "the franchise poised to make the biggest jump in the standings relative...

Jared Sullinger ranked among NBA's most likely to break out

As the offseason settled down after free agency, one of the only Celtics generating any "news" has been Jared Sullinger leaking footage of himself working out on the Internet. And, honestly, NBA2K16 didn't exactly do the Celtics big man any favors with their likeness of number 7.

Are Boston Celtics close to extending Tyler Zeller?

The Boston Celtics and Tyler Zeller are in a tricky situation. The Celtics are more than willing to lock Zeller up on a long-term deal before the October 31st deadline, but aren't willing to do so at a price that's perceived to be at or above his market value. After the deadline passes, the chance of keeping Zeller or grabbing him at an appropriate cost drops dramatically, when...

Should the Celtics extend Zeller, Sullinger?

The Celtics have an abundance of flexibility.

They are developing Marcus Smart, James Young, R.J. Hunter and Terry Rozier. They also signed Amir Johnson and re-signed...

Another gem shared by CelticsLife poster "Reggielewis35," highlighting the 1988 Celtics.  These were pull-outs from the Boston Globe.  We've lamented the 1987 Celtics a lot around here.  The '88 Celtics were a really good team but similar to 1987, their bench didn't have enough firepower.  The 5 you see above is really all they could count on.  Maybe because this guy was a key...
