In response to BrandBreaker8's comment: In response to BirdLewsBias' comment: Bummer! I think Ainge should've given him the player option for the 2nd year. It's only like 2.5M Who knows? I read that more »

In response to BirdLewsBias' comment: Ainge is using Hinkie like he's his....you know what. The Sixers had Thomas and McGee and now the Celtics have both for basically a 2016 #1 and bi-annual salary. more »

A word about Marcus Smart's jump shot: For the first 5 years of Jason Kidd's career, the knock was he couldn't shoot , yet Jason Kidd ended up one of the top 5 3pt shooters of all time.....same thin more »

2014 Draft Update: Yes, it turns out Jusef Nurkik really is that good !@ Good enough to make JaVale McGee and his $12M salary expendable....that's pretty good...... Because let's remember , JaVale d more »

In response to cole-ely's comment: I will say that top rookies kind of take turns getting rookie of the month. I'm guessing that award came more by the c's winning some games than by Smart's producti more »

Would love to see Jerblenko back for Scalabrine Money , or 2015 version of Scalabrine Money which is $4M per ....the thing about Jeblerko, he is legit big enough to play minute at center, talented eno more »

In response to DaCeltics' comment: Smart needs to study Andre Miller offensive highlights and pattern his game after him. excellent comparison , Andre Miller is close to a Hall of Famer (not quite) , more »

In response to ImagydVast's comment: Can't believe he won that award, means he's viewed as rapidly ascending and showING upside. He showed it on d, offense and intangibles Imagyd there's no univers more »

How is it that the Celtics are not on the hook for McGee's $12M salary next season ? Where's Fierce with the salary cap breakdown ? I see no downside at all to this move , nice at the very least , t more »

In response to sycophant123's comment: These were Smarts numbers in Feb, as rookie of the month. 9.8 points and 4.3 assists. 35 percent from the floor, and 26 percent from 3. These are his numbers in more »

In response to jhol's comment: Moving on from Sully would be one of the biggest mistakes the C's could ever make. He is the best offensive rebounding machine since Cowens. There, I said it. Let the bl more »

I think Zeller is a borderline All Star right now !
love his nifty play, sure hands, and low post ability....
What more do you want ?
Posted 12/19/2014 01:51:08 EST
But is he the perfect 20 minute center to tag team with Tyler Zeller ? Isn't he supposed to be a tough guy and a great defender ? Jordan Hill and Tyler Zeller would have been a VERY strong tandem a more »

I feel as let down as I did the night Ray Allen got traded to the Celtics.....sure, it turned out well, but it didn't seem to make much sense that night....that's how I feel about this Rondo trade. I more »

Still hoping Ainge can land one of these favorites from the 2014 Draft.......Saric would come over immediately if the Celtics traded for him. It doesn't look like James Young is going to give the C more »

Not a bad little player, stopgap for sure....
No better than Courtney Lee

if they had thrown in Jordan Clarkson it would have been awesome !
Posted 12/19/2014 01:01:23 EST
He makes minimum wage and should not be more than the 11th or 12th man.....it only makes sense if he's here and Bass is going to be moved in another deal. Right now, this Rondo trade doesn't look to more »

I think Brandan Wright will be given 25 minutes a night up to the deadline, then he will either be flipped or signed to a contact extension. Depending on whether he fits or not. He's the player the Ce more »

I guess he wasn't that good or they wouldn't have let him go. How bad was Fab Melo that Vitor Favorani beat him out for a roster spot ?
Posted 12/19/2014 12:52:16 EST
I say Jeff Green is the most valuable Celtics asset , keep him and move Bass, Thornton, Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, Marcus Thornton instead.....
Posted 12/19/2014 12:49:33 EST
Jordan Hill and to #1 picks was tempting, I wonder if Ainge wanted Jordan Clarkson thrown into the deal ? That might have been the best deal, Clarkson is a keeper and a steal of this years draft....
Posted 12/19/2014 12:45:55 EST
So far, the best thing about this season is the emergence of Tyler Zeller as a legit double double threat , a tag team of Zeller and Brandan Wright is going to be interesting to watch. But tell me aga more »

In response to romneywins' comment: I starting to wonder if the deal that brought Zeller, Thornto, and the kid in the d league, might just turn out to be huge for the Celts. Zeller will get better an more »
