The Truth has spoken, and he says the Celtics-Bucks series is already over. Following Boston’s 112-90 drubbing of the Bucks Sunday, Pierce took to the airwaves and proclaimed the top-seeded Bucks are lost. “I don’t know where Mllwaukee goes from here. I think it’s over,” he said. Paul Pierce after...

Prior to Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals, Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer told reporters the long layoff between series wasn’t ideal for anyone. He may want to consider only speaking on behalf of his own team going forward. Based on what we saw in the Celtics 112-90 win, Boston took...

The Celtics-Bucks Eastern Conference Semifinals matchup is set to start, with top-seeded Milwaukee still the favorite to win the series. Having arguably the best player in the NBA from the 2018-19 season certainly helps the Bucks’ chances. But this series won’t be anything like either team’s first-...

For all the problems Giannis Antetokounmpo presents on the offensive end, as well as Khris Middleton, Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon (if he’s cleared to play), there’s still the matter of Milwaukee’s defensive presence. In their last meeting with the Celtics, the Bucks held Boston under 100...

Kyrie Irving has previously stated he sought out Kobe Bryant’s advice regarding his career, particularly when he was rumored to be in a deal that would have sent him to Phoenix from Cleveland.

As much as the Indiana Pacers weren’t exactly the most talented offensive team, a four-game sweep in the first round wouldn’t have been possible for the Celtics without Kyrie Irving. Boston still might’ve won the series, but it wouldn’t have been a lock. No one else can garner the attention Irving...

In the doldrums of winter, we took scores of reactionary callers –– pardon the redundancy –– who proclaimed they would rather see Terry Rozier or Marcus Smart start at point guard for the Celtics instead of Kyrie Irving. It’s safe to say most of those folks probably feel differently following...
