    Sox sign Garrett Richards to a 1 year, $10 million deal

    Considering his age, the duration of the contract, and the general standing of the rest of the roster, I personally don’t believe that Richards performing to his career lines for the first half of the season is enough to catapult this team into a perennial contender - which is Bloom’s goal, is...

    Sox sign Garrett Richards to a 1 year, $10 million deal

    Best case scenario is Richards pitches extraordinarily well and is flipped for a nice haul at the deadline. The second year option would allow Boston to get a bit more considering he may not be a rental for the acquiring team, provided it is a team option.

    1/17 - Knicks @ Celtics

    The new spot is 5-10 rows back, in the first tier of seats off the floor and dead center, similar to the location in the old garden. I would think this would offer a better vantage point, and I believe Mike even said something to that effect in the first home game this season. In either case...

    1/17 - Knicks @ Celtics

    I’m starting to worry about Mike Gorman’s mental faculties. He has been uncharacteristically error prone in identifying Celtic players since the jump, which I initially attributed to not being in the arena in away games, but the sample is becoming a bit more significant.

    1/17 - Knicks @ Celtics

    exactly what you want on a fast break from a turn over, a smart 3.

    1/17 - Knicks @ Celtics

    Teague is just terrible. 7 minutes, 0-3 with a laughable shot blocked, 2 fouls, and somehow the box score only credits him with 1 TO. I could get past all that if the offense around him didn’t always look worse than when he’s on the bench.

    Victor Oladipo to Houston

    Obviously the main hope here is that this is nothing serious whatsoever and he misses minimal time if at all. On the off chance that this is serious, however, being traded may have saved his life. The NBA equivalent of the Lester fender bender.

    1/15 - Magic @ Celtics

    JB, through 23 minutes: 21pts, 6-11FG, 8 assists. Getting the best defender on the floor the entire time. Insane growth as a playmaker, drawing two on the break for that kick out to Pritchard for a wide open look. Edit: oh yeah, and he’s 7/7 from the stripe.

    THIS is Celtic basketball. Incredible ball movement.

    Who should start for this team in 2021?

    The optimist in me says this is the domino that topples the rest that are setup, according to a number of reports that Boston has a few irons in the fire. It would bring me a lot of joy to see Bloom win a few very nice trades in a row here to shore up the 2021 team. Starting with a more robust...

    Getting 2013 Red Sox vibes from this team.

    C's pick Aaron Nesmith #14 overall

    I didn't notice anything specific about his mechanics being out of whack, but the game is clearly moving a bit too quickly for him. His draft profiles all touted his sound, repeatable mechanics as a huge plus for him and I think we're just seeing him pressing and trying to match Pritchard's...

    1/4 - Celtics @ Raptors

    Started daydreaming about adding a healthy Kemba and Smart with and a competent Langford to that second quarter and nearly fainted.

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    I'm not saying that this is your position, but the idea of that these guys need to go is totally asinine. The ownership (and Ainge) had cited Brad's vision as aligning with the organization in the praise surrounding the announcement of his extension back in August of 2020, with Ainge saying...

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    Yeah, I can see what you mean. A 4/$40 is a no-brainer, but it becomes a bit more of a tough call at 4/$60. I think I'd probably still pull the trigger considering he would not be nearly the worst value out there if he can be 110% of what he's shown thus far at season's end, and an extremely...

    I Believe in Time Lord...Why Can't You?

    This is the route I would choose, but hopefully settling closer to 4/$40M extension, rather than 4/$50M+. This team could use some contracts in this range for salary matching if things don't pan out, but I am extremely pleased with his improvement.

    Analysis of Celtics Games (2020-2021)

    I think the bolded may true in theory, but I don't think it holds any water in reality. If the metrics bare this out, it's probably statistical noise. I've watched quite a few Pelicans games and Zion certainly isn't in game shape, and isn't the close out defender you make him out to be. He's...

    1/3 - Celtics @ Pistons

    Teague has no feel for the flow of the offense right now and it’s maddening considering fast PP looks like the best guy for the job.
