The Celtics made the right decision, but it looks like Jaylen Brown is going to bet on himself. Boston has offered Brown a contract extension, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports — after there’d been speculation the C’s wouldn’t offer such a deal. The offer is good for four years to the tune...

If not for Terrence Ross, this game would’ve been a lot uglier. The Magic also didn’t have Nikola Vucevic, who would normally make a big difference. But the way the Celtics looked in Friday’s 100-75 win, his presence might’ve had a limited impact on the outcome. Romeo Langford finally made his...

Kyle Lowry was the latest of the 2020 NBA free agency class to get an extension, tacking on one more year to stay with the Raptors, to the tune of $31 million. As more moves are made well ahead of next summer, there’s still no sign of the Celtics working out an extension with Jaylen Brown. Which...

Players across the NBA are being asked something to the effect of “what are you trying to improve on” throughout the course of training camp. Some say shooting. Others are trying to get better at attacking the rim. The list goes on. That being said, unless you’re trying to invent something new —...

At the end of each Celtics Training Camp practice, players spend extra time at the Auerbach Center working on some aspect of their game. Tacko Fall and Enes Kanter have gone toe-to-toe in the post more than once. Jayson Tatum has taken a ton of three-pointers , as have Grant Williams, Daniel Theis...

“Fresh start.” Jayson Tatum said it. So did Semi Ojeleye. Marcus Smart and Gordon Hayward brought the phrase up, as well. It seems that’s how they all view the 2019-20 season. In a way, focusing so much on a new beginning can be counterproductive. Thinking about starting over means you’re aware of...

Now that Kyrie Irving and Al Horford are gone and the Celtics have done their best to adjust on the fly — adding of Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter — the focus, as it pertains to the structure of the roster, is now on Jaylen Brown and his future with the team past 2019-20. The team could give him an...

It’s hard to decide which Celtic had the best Media Day entrance. The door frame leading into the press conference room had to be at least a foot and a half too short for Tacko Fall. Jaylen Brown revealed his new haircut in person for the first time. But the unofficial award probably goes to Enes...

When it became clear the Kyrie Irving era in Boston was over, the logical move seemed to be: build around Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Danny Ainge has held onto them when opportunities to do otherwise have reportedly presented themselves. Adding Kemba Walker shows the C’s still believe they need...

Kemba Walker isn’t his predecessor. There are pros and cons to that. The pro that’s been discussed most has been Walker’s approach with the young guys and his general ability as a leader. Makes sense given the chaos that ensued under Kyrie Irving’s watch last year. With Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown...
