It may take more than a few hours to fly from Boston to Senegal, but Tacko Fall is getting the same “at home” feeling he has when he goes back to Africa as he tours around New England. The undrafted Celtics rookie recently took a trip to New Hampshire to visit Canobie Lake Park and stopped in...

Almost exactly one month ago, TNT made an adjustment to its NBA coverage, making “Players Only” broadcasts a thing of the past. It was the right move for everyone. But it looks like TNT isn’t stopping there. According to The Big Lead , the station’s “Inside the NBA” will no longer feature Kevin...

Derrick White didn’t exactly play much for Team USA in Thursday’s game against Australia, and the game was essentially over when he entered in the fourth quarter. But the Spurs guard still played. The same cannot be said for Marcus Smart, who was the only member of Team USA who didn’t get in the...

In recent international competitions, Team USA has carried multiple NBA All-Stars and All-NBA players on its roster. This has made it impossible to imagine Team USA losing a single game — they actually only lost one under Mike Krzyzewski (75-1). But the group representing the US in the 2019 FIBA...

Every professional coach has a different way of approaching the media, which is on display in Boston with all four coaches not all having the same style -- some more different than others. As part of the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon, Bill Belichick, Brad Stevens, Alex Cora and Bruce Cassidy...

The players from last year’s Celtics roster that are still with Boston continue to receive questions about their disappointing 2018-19. Whether it’s the season-long drama, both Kyrie Irving and Al Horford leaving or Kemba Walker coming to town, comparing the 2019-20 team to the 2018-19 team seems...

Gordon Hayward’s return in 2018-19 wasn’t exactly what everyone expected. Since he was cleared to play, the thought was: Hayward will be back to his old self. But, as was the case with Paul George when he came back from the injury he suffered in the summer of 2014, Hayward wasn’t the same. He...

Talk of leadership has become one of the more annoying points of debate in sports. I don’t know why, but some seem to think great players have to be leaders, too. Furthermore, leaders have to be vocal, they can’t just lead by example. It’s a ridiculous, tangled web and, for some reason, tends to be...

For all the problems the 2018-19 Celtics appeared to have, none of it would’ve mattered if the product on the floor was unaffected. But it all seemed to manifest into “too many mouths to feed” — something Danny Ainge recently spoke about in his appearance on NBC Sports Boston’s “The Michael Holley...

Leading up to the 2019 NBA Draft, no one could seem to pin down exactly when Carsen Edwards and Grant Williams would be selected. Some mock drafts had Williams going sooner than No. 22, which is where the Celtics took him, some had him going later. Same for Edwards (No. 33), though he wasn’t likely...
