Jaylen Brown Says the Celtics Made Him an Offer He Couldn’t Refuse

Back in October, Jaylen Brown inked a 4-year, $115 million contract extension with the Celtics just before the deadline for rookie’s to re-sign with their ​teams. At the time, the deal was paraded in NBA circles as a bit of an overpay, but Brown’s breakout season has silenced those criticizing the Celtics for the move. Brown would’ve …

A Deep Dive Into Potential Celtics Trade Targets

With just 15 days until the NBA’s trade deadline, brace yourselves for two weeks of nonstop rumors and unnamed sources.

The idea that the Celtics need to make a move by the trade deadline has been something I’ve disagreed with since the start of the season.  Now, after watching the Celtics get practically embarrassed in three-straight losses (Washington, San Antonio, and sadly… Philly), I am starting to lean into the idea of making some type …

Enes Kanter’s “Improved Defense” Is A Facade

When teammates jokingly called Enes Kanter “stop sign” after a 6 block performance against Charlotte on New Years Eve, it was funny and almost seemed like they were aware of his reputation on that end of the floor.

Making the Case; Jaylen Brown a 2020 NBA All-Star

By now, Celtics GM Danny Ainge has largely put the “doesn’t know how to draft” narrative to bed – for every James Young and Fab Melo, there’s a Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. And it’s not just “Fire and Ice” – just this decade, Ainge drafted Avery Bradley in 2010, Marcus Smart in 2014, Terry Rozier in 2016, and Robert Williams in 2018, all of whom ended up in …

Like Last Year’s Kings, the Grizzlies Aren’t Doing the Celtics Any Draft Pick Favors

While Boston’s picks obtained from the Brooklyn Nets ended up netting them Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, and later helped bolster a deal for Kyrie Irving, their luck hasn’t been nearly as good so far with Sacramento and Memphis’ picks.  If the season ended today, the Sacramento Kings would be tied for the 8th worst …
