Twelve championship titles since 2001, and you can add another five from our championship college hockey friends at BC and BU within that same period of time.

Kyrie Irving's future in Boston is as murky as it has ever looked. Is it fair to expect Irving to make some sort of commitment to the Celtics moments after losing Game 5 and being bounced out of the playoffs by the Bucks? No, absolutely not.

Looks like that switch the Celtics flipped when the playoffs started was a little faulty. With the exception of Marcus Morris (14 points and 11 rebounds) and a few hustle plays from the laboring Marcus Smart, this team may have had its worst showing in all of 2018-19 against the Bucks in the 116-91...

Jalen Rose does not think it would be a bad thing if Kyrie Irving spurned the Celtics and signed elsewhere this offseason.

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...
