Is Semi Ojeleye the Celtics new x-factor?
Semi Ojeleye was dubbed one of best value picks of the draft when he was taken in the second round by the Celtics. With a body that belongs in Gold's Gym and a sweet-looking jumper, it's still quite puzzling how he slipped that far. Nonetheless, the acquisition of Ojeleye has a chance to be a criti

Guerschon Yabusele and the Celtics are focused on modern basketball
Boston's 2015 trade with the Mavericks transformed their roster building approach. Rajon Rondo's methodical sets disappeared. There'd be no more charging drives by Jeff Green. Versatility and spacing soon engulfed the game, and Boston's roster dump equipped them well to buy in. Equipped with a fir

Ranking Every NBA Franchise on Historical Success
Ranking Every NBA Franchise on Historical Success 0 of 31 Recency bias does not apply here. The events that transpired in the 2016-17 NBA season carry the same weight as those that unfolded back in the 1950s. Every campaign is treated equally when trying to determine which franchises have experienc
Kevin Garnett, former Boston Celtics star, talks Kevin Durant, DeMarcus Cousins, more in Reddit AMA
Former Boston Celtics great Kevin Garnett took to the internet on Thursday, answering several questions in a Reddit AMA. While Garnett never went too crazy in his answers, it was fun to see him during the offseason promoting Area 21 - one of the better aspects of the TNT NBA broadcast last year. He
Brown Determined to Lead, Bring New C's Together
BOSTON - From their offseason homes in Atlanta, Jaylen Brown and Al Horford watched as the contents of the 2016-17 Celtics roster separated piece by piece. Eleven of their teammates from the previous season parted ways with the organization in one way or another. By the end of the chaotic summer, t
Aron Baynes is the Amir Johnson replacement (sort of)
Al Horford is a center. In fact, he's one of the better centers in the league. Of course, he doesn't like to be called a center, and there's the rub. Horford seems to be cut from the cloth of the new age centers who pride themselves on being all around basketball players and not the pigeon-holed, lu

BOSTON - With all the versatility on the Boston Celtics roster, it's not easy placing positional labels on the players. That's not an issue for Brad Stevens, however, as he doesn't classify his guys with the traditional 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 positional tags. Instead, the Celtics coach sings to his ow
Blakely: Light up a birthday cigar for Red
Today marks what would have been Auerbach's 100th birthday, a milestone worth noting for a man who did so much for the game. Auerbach, who passed away on October 28, 2006, did more than make the Boston Celtics a household name. His up-tempo brand of play made the Celtics -- and the NBA, for that mat
Should the Celtics extend Smart's contract before the October 16th deadline?
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Heading into his fourth professional season, Marcus Smart is due a contract extension. At the end of the 2017-18 season, Smart and other members of the 2014 NBA Draft class become restricted free agents or RFA's. Other teams can extend RFA's offer sheets, which they
