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...

So it looks like the Celtics are going to get their star player to fill the void left by Kyrie Irving. And, of course, Kemba Walker, a member of the 2019 All-NBA Third Team, will not only be the new star, he’ll also man the point. With the Celtics in deep on Walker — now being the reported...

"Character" was somewhat of a theme at the introductory press conference for the four Celtics selection from the 2019 NBA Draft.

Kyrie Irving is apparently showing more effort in his single-person pursuit of Kevin Durant this summer than he displayed on the defensive side of the floor all season long. The two superstars have met twice in recent weeks, according to Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher. League sources say they got...

Now that Aron Baynes is gone and both Al Horford and Kyrie Irving are expected to leave town once NBA free agency kicks off on June 30, questions about where things went wrong for the Celtics have started to pop up again.
