Oklahoma City and Indiana shocked the NBA in July of 2017 with a trade blasted as horrifically one-sided at the time. But now we have no idea what to call it.

Brad Stevens pulled it off again. When it comes to drawing up a play towards the end of the game, there aren't many coaches in the league better than the Celtics' head coach. Unlike most coaches that have designated go-to players that always get the ball at the end of the fourth quarter, Stevens...

Both stand 6-foot-3, but one is built like a free safety and the other a third-down back. Both dominate the ball, but one is about overwhelming athleticism -- he can race past defenders, run through them, or soar over them -- while the other prefers operating in tight spaces with the precision of a...

Reggie Lewis passed away nearly 23 years ago, but the late Celtics star's mom believes the team could honor his memory in an unexpected way -- by giving his retired No. 35 to Kevin Durant. That's according to Kevin O'Connor of CSNNE , who got Lewis' mom, Inez Ritch, on the phone recently. "I don't...
