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...

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.

On the whole, the trip to China was a disappointment for everyone on Team USA. That’s not to say the chemistry was bad between certain guys or anything of the sort.

Missed free throws. They’ll always come back to bite you. Celtics fans know this all too well, and the problem permeated into Team USA’s 89-79 loss to France on Wednesday. Marcus Smart — for all of his heroics in the game — missed four free throws. Kemba Walker is typically a strong free-throw...

The one thing that’s been most consistent about the numbers Jaylen Brown has produced throughout the 2019 FIBA World Cup: they’ve been inconsistent. He did a bit of everything against Greece. He barely played against Turkey and Brown’s line against the Czech Republic might lead one to think he was...

Kemba Walker continues to be Team USA’s most reliable player on the offensive end at the 2019 FIBA World Cup. In Monday’s second-round game against Brazil, it felt like Walker could do anything he wanted from start to finish. He got to the basket easily, scoring 16 points on 6 of 9 shooting. He...

Seven inches. Twenty-two pounds. That’s the size advantage Giannis Antetokounmpo is working with against Marcus Smart. Yet when the Celtics guard was tasked with covering the Greek Freak on Saturday, he bodied him up as well as anyone ever has. As much as Smart had to stay in Antetokounmpo’s hip...
