Kyrie Irving believes Celtics can beat Warriors in NBA Finals

In a lengthy interview with ESPN, Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said he’s fully healed from offseason knee surgery, which perhaps explains why he’s so bullish on the team’s future this season. “Can we beat Golden State in a seven-game series?” he asked. “Yes.” That was just one of the takeaways from a piece that also included Irving’s most encouraging remarks to date about his longterm future in Boston. “Who wouldn’t be a part of this?” Irving told ESPN, gesturing to…

What Jimmy Butler drama might mean for Celtics

The news of Jimmy Butler wanting out of Minnesota shook the NBA landscape Wednesday evening, but what does the All-Star’s trade request mean for the Celtics?

Video: Watch Jaylen Brown race cousin A.J. Bouye of Jags in 40-yard dash

Jaylen Brown came closer to beating A.J. Bouye than the Patriots did. The Celtics forward, considered one of the NBA’s rising stars, raced his cousin, the Jaguars Pro Bowl cornerback, in a video posted to Twitter on Monday. Though it’s unclear when the video was filmed — presumably during the summer — what’s indisputable is that Brown actually holds his own against the 6-foot, 191-pounder. They race twice, with Bouye taunting the 6-foot-7 forward in the first one by looking…

ESPN top 100 NBA player list ranks Al Horford behind two other Celtics

Because we get worked up about such things for whatever reason, Sports Illustrated’s list of the top 100 NBA players touched a nerve with Celtics fans by naming Al Horford the best player on the team. ESPN disagrees. Though it has only revealed players Nos. 31-100 as it releases its list in stages, we’ve already seen enough to know that not one, but two, Celtics will come out ahead of Horford this year. ESPN’s list will likely include seven Celtics….

Terry Rozier pinpoints shot that led to birth of Scary Terry nickname with Celtics

Ever wonder where the “Scary Terry” nickname came from for Terry Rozier? Allow the Celtics guard to explain.

The SI list raised eyebrows, however, by placing Al Horford atop the list of C’s, at No. 16 overall, one slot ahead of teammate Kyrie Irving. Here’s what…
