  2. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  3. The Inbounds: The unfathomable jump Jeff Green needs

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    I’ve pretty much always been on the side that thinks Jeff Green can develop into a capable NBA player. In Oklahoma City, he was “the other guy” drafted with Durant, part of the central core. His role was nebulous, falling into that generic “forward” category. It took a while for the debate to start over…

  4. Jeff Green “finally” officially signs deal with Boston Celtics

    Aug 22, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    It didn’t take long at all for Jeff Green to reach deal to return to the Celtics this summer, it was announced back the first week of July that he had agreed terms on what apparently is a four-year, $36 million deal to stay with the Celtics (after missing last season for heart surgery). But…

  6. Celtics’ Jeff Green says he feels “awesome,” is back playing

    Aug 6, 2012, 3:05 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Boston missed Jeff Green last year. He was going to be their sixth man, the first wing off the bench, a key contributor before he was found to have a heart condition that required surgery. We can discuss how I think Celtics fans (and at first Thunder fans before them) overvalued Green, but it was…

  7. The Inbounds: Indiana and defense of second

    Aug 6, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Welcome to the Inbounds, touching on one big idea, story, or discussion point of the day.  It’s fine to think the Celtics were the second best team in the East in last year’s playoffs (factoring the Bulls post-Rose injury). I mean, they finished second, right? They pushed the eventual NBA champions to seven games, and…

  9. Pietrus will not play for veteran minimum, so goodbye Boston

    Jul 25, 2012, 12:13 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    Boston is already pretty deep with swingmen. They have Paul Pierce starting at the three with Jeff Green back behind him. Avery Bradley starts at the two guard and Courtney Lee is behind him, with Jason Terry able to play that role depending on how Doc Rivers decides his rotations. Mickael Pietrus is a luxury…

  10. The Inbounds: How Danny Ainge created the FrankenCeltics monster

    Jul 23, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Pierce and Garnett react when the team was called for a technical foul against the Chicago Bulls during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. As Boston entered last year’s playoffs, they were favored against the Hawks. The biggest reason for that, despite what anyone…

  11. Report: Celtics to sign Jason Collins, bench no longer complete disaster

    Jul 22, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Collins_Jason

    ESPN Boston reports that the Celtics are set to sign free agent center Jason Collins to a veteran-minimum deal. The 33-year-old Collins appeared in just 30 games last season for the Atlanta Hawks. Billed as the “Dwight Stopper,” Collins isn’t an elite defender but among veteran centers, he’s nothing to sneeze at. He’s able to…

  12. Celtics reach agreement with Jeff Green

    Jul 7, 2012, 3:55 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    The question is “how much?” Regardless of how much the deal is worth, the Celtics have reached an agreement on a deal with Jeff Green via Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. The deal is very likely to be a four-year deal, and there are reports of the range being close to $40 million. The Celtics cannot…

  13. Jeff Green’s agent says things are going great for Jeff Green on the free agent market. Yeah.

    Jun 17, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    You have to be rooting for Jeff Green. The Oklahoma City scapegoat before Russell Westbrook took over the mantle, Green was traded to Boston with huge expectations, and before he could settle in, a serious heart condition that proved to be life-threatening ended his season and put his life in danger. Now he’s on the…

  14. Tuesday And-1 links: Portland’s sell out streak in jeopardy

    Jan 17, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  15. Kendrick Perkins returns to Boston for first time Monday

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:51 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Kendrick Perkins

    It’s going to be weird. With all due respect to Jeff Green, nobody in the Boston locker room wanted the Kendrick Perkins trade to go down. Perk was part of the family, part of the foundation, part of the reason there is banner 17 at the Boston Garden. Celtics fans didn’t like it much either,…

  16. Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Good news out of the Boston area — Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday. Green was to be a key part of the Celtics bench until a routine preseason physical found an aneurysm — an abnormal ballooning of an artery near the heart — that required surgery. That surgery went well, according to CSNNE.com.…

  17. Jeff Green to be unrestricted free agent as Celtics pull qualifying offer

    Jan 7, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Whether it was a calculated maneuver to save themselves money or a generous move to help out a young player who caught an extremely bad break (but also found the break which was a wonderfully good break), the result is the same. Jeff Green will be an unrestricted free agent when he returns to the…

  18. 100 early season observations

    Dec 31, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  19. Stop talking Rondo for Westbrook trade, it’s a bad idea

    Dec 29, 2011, 4:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Russell Westbrook

    In the wake of Russell Westbrook having a spat with Kevin Durant while at the same time the Boston Celtics are off to an 0-3 start, there’s been all sports of buzz on the Internet and talk radio about a Westbrook for Rajon Rondo trade. Stop it. Let it go. It doesn’t work. And it’s…

  20. Jeff Green hanging with Celtics, happy he’ll get to play again

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green could be devastated, sitting around his house cursing the fates and wondering what might have been. He was to be a key cog for a Celtics team looking to hang a banner, instead he is out for the season following heart surgery. Instead, Green is in a pretty good place. He spoke with…

  21. Paul Pierce is in New York, will be game-time decision

    Dec 25, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    The Boston Celtics will tip off the NBA season with the New York Knicks at noon Chrstmas day, and they may also have the first major player to miss games due to injury for the season. Paul Pierce is in New York with the Celtics but whether he plays is a game-time decision due to…

  22. Celtics to offer Pietrus minimum, add swingman who isn’t 35

    Dec 24, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    pietrus

    The Celtics have a horrible bench. Mickael Pietrus has an injury issue. It’s a match made in heaven. The former Magic wing was waived by the Suns earlier this week, after surgery on his knees helped result in a trade to the Raptors falling through. Now the Boston Globe reports that the Celtics are prepared…

  23. Doc Rivers doesn’t expect Paul Pierce to play on Christmas

    Dec 23, 2011, 6:35 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    We’re a long way away from the Chicken Little “the sky is falling” predictions about the Celtics season coming true, but this isn’t a good start. Paul Pierce didn’t practice on Friday and Doc Rivers sounded less than optimistic he would be able to go in the Celtics season opener Sunday against the Knicks, reports…

  24. Paul Pierce to miss preseason game… maybe opening day?

    Dec 20, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce has a right heel injury, one that will keep him out of Wednesday’s preseason game against the Raptors. But a veteran missing a preseason game is not going to turn any heads. But him missing the season opener against the Knicks would. It is possible, the Celtics are admitting. Here are the cryptic…

  25. Chuck Hayes fails physical with Kings, contract voided

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    In the wake of what happened with Jeff Green of the Celtics last week, we can only hope that this isn’t as serious or at least is as treatable. In a surprise move the Sacramento Kings have voided the free agent contract of Chuck Hayes, the team announced, as reported by CSNBayArea.com. He had abnormalities appear…
