At Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter’s introductory press conference on Wednesday, the two new Celtics said a lot of the right things. Kanter trolled Kyrie Irving — which was hard to not laugh at — and Walker’s explanation about his approach as a leader — a topic that just won’t die — differed immensely...

Kendrick Perkins retiring from the NBA may have been the best thing to happen to basketball in the 2018-19 season. Because now we have Kendrick Perkins the media personality (and pseudo-reporter), and he is everything you’d want from an ex-athlete in his role. Kawhi is still meeting with the...

On June 24, it looked like the Celtics were left with their young core, Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward. Kyrie Irving was leaving, so was Al Horford. Terry Rozier was the logical option to take over as the new starting point guard. The next day, the C’s are reportedly “stealth suitors” for Kemba...
