At the end of each Celtics Training Camp practice, players spend extra time at the Auerbach Center working on some aspect of their game. Tacko Fall and Enes Kanter have gone toe-to-toe in the post more than once. Jayson Tatum has taken a ton of three-pointers , as have Grant Williams, Daniel Theis...

As analytics become more important in the NBA, the mid-range jumper seems to be less valued. Why shoot a two from 15 feet when you can take a few steps back for a three or drive and draw a foul or finish at the rim, right? But the mid-range jumper has always been something the best scorers have at...

First, Romeo Langford’s right thumb was the problem. He had surgically repaired prior to the Celtics drafting him after tearing a tendon during his freshman year at Indiana. Now, it’s his groin. Langford told Tom Westerholm of MassLive he tweaked it. Gordon Hayward was asked about the rookie’s play...

For all the question marks surrounding the Celtics at training camp, Vincent Poirier might be the greatest unknown of them all. He’s played in the NBA Summer League a couple times, but never played professionally in America outside of those opportunities. The French import played for Baskonia in...

The Celtics took a huge hit defensively when they lost Al Horford in the offseason. Not to mention Aron Baynes, who they shipped to Phoneix. Enes Kanter should provide a significant lift on the defensive glass, but he isn’t as reliable when it comes to the other responsibilities on that end of the...

The NBA’s re-measurements of all its players have yet to come out, so Enes Kanter is still listed at 6-foot-11. It’s hard to imagine he’ll be below 6-foot-10, if he doesn’t still measure in at his currently listed height. Point is, Kanter is tall by anyone’s standard. Yet, somehow, during the first...

Each of the four Celtics who played under Gregg Popovich for Team USA this summer has had nothing but good things to say about the San Antonio Spurs coach. One would think they all could have learned something from the five-time NBA champion. Jayson Tatum, in particular, took a major lesson from...

“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...

Now that Kyrie Irving and Al Horford are gone and the Celtics have done their best to adjust on the fly — adding of Kemba Walker and Enes Kanter — the focus, as it pertains to the structure of the roster, is now on Jaylen Brown and his future with the team past 2019-20. The team could give him an...

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...
