The NBA season is underway and it’s time for a “fresh start” in Boston. Here’s the season preview for the 2019-20 Celtics: Driving force... Signing Kemba Walker in the offseason was huge. Gordon Hayward being back to full-strength is important. But Boston’s success this year is reliant on one...

The Celtics starters barely broke a sweat against the Cavaliers in Sunday’s 118-72 win. Kemba Walker (12 points), Jaylen Brown (10) and Daniel Theis (10) were three of the five Celtics to finish in double figures. All three of Walker’s field goals came from beyond the arc.

“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...

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...

Semi Ojeleye may have received more mixed messages than any Celtic in 2018-19. From his rookie to his sophomore season, he saw a drop in playing time. Yet Brad Stevens expressed the forward may have been the team’s most improved player in 2018-19. When it came to the team’s drama, Ojeleye didn’t...
