No -- Leonard quit on the Spurs and Irving made the Celtics his team

Yes -- Leonard's the better player and Kyrie might be gone anyway

The question is simple: If you're Danny Ainge, would you send All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving to San Antonio for All-Star small forward Kawhi Leonard? Both players should be free agents following the season, and both could be seeking new homes next summer. It's no secret that Leonard wants to...

Following a game where Kyrie Irving's 43 points led the Celtics to a 123-116 overtime win at TD Garden, James took to Twitter to congratulate Irving for his incredible performance in...

The Celtics are finally starting to look like a team that is destined to top the Eastern Conference. Led by Kyrie Irving, who is quickly becoming the best fourth-quarter player in the league, the Celtics are finding their identity and it's coming at a perfect time.

In last year’s playoffs vs. the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, there were some tense moments for the Celtics, particularly against Milwaukee, but I never felt any fear. There was plenty of tension but a stronger dose of confidence as I watched game by game. Even in the Eastern Conference...

Two struggling members of Brad Stevens’ starting five found reasons for optimism on Wednesday night. Gordon Hayward started miserably for more than two quarters before delivering some of his best basketball of the season with the second unit. Meanwhile, guard Jaylen Brown looked confident and...

Watching the Celtics fall behind by 16 a night before mounting furiously futile rallies on a 1-4 West coast trip made it clear that change is needed. At this point last year, without Gordon Hayward, the Celtics were 11-2. Now they’re 7-6 and middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference. There are...

On impact, the injury looked every bit as bad as one Celtics fans won’t soon forget. But the good news for Nets guard Caris LeVert is that he won’t require surgery and might actually return this season. Either way, Gordon Hayward will be there for him if he needs it. A year after Hayward’s Celtics...

There’s a disaster scenario unfolding for the Celtics, and it has nothing to do with their 1-4 West Coast road trip or slide towards .500. It’s their future draft picks. Remember those fever dreams about replenishing a loaded roster with top-three picks from Sacramento this year and Memphis in 2021...
