    Xavier Tillman to Celtics for 2 2nd round picks

    I couldn’t find the clip, but he said in an interview at the start of the season he won’t be the guy that holds on too long, that the moment he can’t help the team on the court he’ll retire. He also said as long as he can produce he’s likely to continue to play, and he’s shown this year he has...

    NBA Finals: Celtics vs Mavs

    I'd honestly love to hear from them, but they know the first one to genuinely respond will be hounded by posters being dicks so I get why they keep to themselves

    NBA Finals: Celtics vs Mavs

    You know what? This team reminds me of a hockey team, having their mentality. To steal from Shoresy to explain, all the positivity from interviews is either team oriented or towards a teammate, all negativity is a player owing their mistakes. I love rooting for these guys

    What is your top concern for NBA Finals (For Celtics Fans)?

    I picked other, because a JT or JB injury is really the only thing that will kill this for me in the "what could have been" way. If the Mavs beat us with both teams relatively at full health so be it. An injury to either of those two is my only concern

    National Celtics discourse

    Key's actually been kinda funny to watch on Undisputed when it comes to the C's when Pierce is there. They obviously task him with always countering Pierce, and he tries at the start, you can tell he doesn't believe the crap he has to spout, and as soon as PP and Skip get into it he immediately...

    NBA Finals: Celtics vs Mavs

    I can't remember which of the Cs games it was this season, but a red faced, visibly exhausted and exacerbated Luka at the end of the game who put up numbers but still got smoked is seared into my mind why I don't fear the Mavs

    Al Horford - the Celtics' Resurrected Saviour of the Season

    It appears to be true, there is a bunch of stuff about it out there. I personally don't read too much into it, and if I were to I think it's a good thing. Putting it up now means in theory it should sell this summer, so he can move in the offseason and not have to pull his kids from school...

    Damn I didn't think Joe knew how to smile

    5/27 - ECF Game 4 @ IND - Kill Shot

    Seriously, this was a legit team effort and I hate they can't just pick "The starting 5" as MVP

    5/27 - ECF Game 4 @ IND - Kill Shot

    So who's the MVP? I legit don't know how you can name one over another between JB and JT

    Al Horford - the Celtics' Resurrected Saviour of the Season

    I looked for the video but couldn't find it, there was an interview he did either in training camp or at the start of the season where he talked about how long he wanted to play. Basically as long as he can contribute on the court he will continue to play, but as soon as he can't he won't hang on.

    Jrue the Damaja

    From what I remember Portland did him a solid by basically letting him pick his destination

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    Sorry that wasn't at you if it came across that way. I rarely watch mational media and I didn't pose the original ask, but people can't seem to grasp the concept that national media personalities have to appease both fanbases and water it down for soundbites. People let it bother them way too...

    Round 3: Celtics vs Pacers

    Legler is doing what he's supposed to do and play both sides, and he is doing it really well without sounding like an ass with legit commentary edit: people can't seem to understand national media needs to at least try to pander to both fan bases

    Pritchard Extended

    While he's definitely improved, he has much more freedom to play his game and attack this season instead of standing in a corner, never touching the ball. Yes, he will be hunted on D depending on the matchup and have bad games, but his confidence with the ball to make plays and take shots makes...

    Denver Nuggets (2) vs Minnesota Timberwolves (3) - 2024 WC Second Round

    He said on a pod with PP that it would be 50/50, every night he'd be happy with whoever won

    Jaylen Brown: Will he be enough in Year 8?

    I picked up on that, I just don’t know the books/movies. What is JB trying to say?
