Anyone who followed the Celtics for five minutes in 2018-19 shouldn’t be surprised by news that Kyrie Irving had a less than ideal relationship with his younger teammates. Jayson Tatum recently expressed the Celtics, in fact, did get along. Problem was, the chemistry was only solid off the court...

It’s been fairly well-documented the Patriots have held onto Tom Brady at a discounted rate. The most recent bit of information confirming that is the 2019 Forbes “World’s Highest-Paid Athletes” list. Forbes has two categories on the list: salary/winnings and endorsements. The total earnings are...

When rumors about Anthony Davis wanting out of New Orleans first started to circulate in February, he supposedly had a set list of four teams he would consider signing with long-term: the Lakers, Knicks, Clippers, and Bucks. Then Davis said at NBA All-Star Weekend, “I never said Boston wasn’t on my...

Even before David Griffin was running the show in New Orleans, everyone knew it was going to take a lot for the Celtics, or anyone else, to land Anthony Davis. He’s one of the best players in the NBA, that’s how it works. However, the Pelicans’ asking price had been up in the air throughout the...

Looks like Stephen A. Smith felt the need to clear some things up about his report from Tuesday on Kyrie Irving’s future after Danny Ainge said on Wednesday he hasn’t been given indication Irving has ruled out re-signing with the Celtics. During Thursday’s “First Take” on ESPN, Smith, again,...

Kyrie Irving continues to draw most of the attention of any Celtics player with his big decision pending — and Terry Rozier’s mini-media tour at an end. All eyes were on Irving throughout the regular season, as well, whether it was for the right reasons or the wrong ones. After him, Gordon Hayward’...

The Celtics have not responded to adversity all season long, so there is no reason to expect them to start now. The only appropriate end for this lethargic group of All-Stars that's slogged its way through a maddening season is an early playoff exit, which they are on the brink of achieving. The 60...

There have been plenty of moments this season where it felt like the 2018-19 season was Kyrie Irving’s last in Boston. Yet, there were stretches that made seem like he’d stick around. Irving’s “who cares?” comment may have been the final nail in the coffin. I truthfully think his response to the...

Khris Middleton drilled seven three-pointers in a game once during the 2018-19 regular season. He did so against the New York Knicks. That alone sums up how things went on the defensive end for Boston in the 123-102 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday. As much as the Bucks said they didn’t need to make...

Game 2 is an absolute must-win for the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ve already lost home-court advantage and a loss on Tuesday creates serious potential for a sweep, as crazy as that may sound. So the Celtics can’t literally end the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Tuesday, but that can make it damn near...
