The Celtics are gearing up for the futile task of trying to stop LeBron James. They have themselves to blame for this misfortune, and would almost certainly do it again. It’s hard to remember now, but just four years ago, the Celtics were at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Coming off a 25-win...

It took Marcus Morris a while to mesh with the Celtics. For starters, he missed roughly the first two weeks of the regular season, because he was on trial for assault. Then he struggled to mesh with Brad Stevens’ ball movement-heavy offense, further stagnating a slow bench unit. It looked like the...

With all due respect to Philly's Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, the Celtics are the NBA's real unicorns.

If last year's NBA trade deadline proved anything, it's that standing pat has its merits. At this time last year, there were howls for the Celtics to do something.

As always, it appears that yet another trade made by Celtics president Danny Ainge is working out in his favor, as the Pistons have made guard Avery Bradley available to any and all teams via trade, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski .

Entering Wednesday’s game against the Clippers, a meeting rather easily won by the Celtics, the walls were most definitely caving in on the East’s alleged best team. To put the disaster in perspective, the Celtics were on a four-game losing skid (their first since March 2016), Kyrie Irving was...

At some point between now and March 10, the Celtics are going to spend $8.4 million on a player with an expiring contract to bolster their lineup. That player could help put them in the Finals.

Danny Ainge is on the kind of roll general managers can only usually dream about. The Celtics chief decision-maker already looked like a really smart guy after executing something that is one of pro sport's toughest tasks -- a legitimate NBA rebuild.
