Kendrick Perkins has a trade proposal for Danny Ainge

Kendrick Perkins has a trade proposal for Danny Ainge

Although there hasn’t been anything linking the Celtics to Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams since the summer, the Thunder big man is continuously brought up when looking at possible trade targets for Boston. Despite the Thunder being No. 7 in the Western Conference standings, reports indicate they are prepared to do business with anyone. So Adams could be moved. Kendrick Perkins thinks the Celtics should take advantage fo the situation. “I think they need a defensive anchor at the center position,…

Kendrick Perkins rips Kyrie Irving on Dale and Keefe

Kendrick Perkins rips Kyrie Irving on Dale and Keefe

Kendrick Perkins has made it fairly clear he’s all set with Kyrie Irving. The former Celtics center wasn’t a fan of how the point guard handled his time in Boston, and Perkins isn’t exactly a fan of the way he’s carrying himself in Brooklyn either. “Everybody has that one family member, you go to gatherings and you be like, ‘Oh lord, here he goes talking again,’ or ‘she goes talking again. It’s kind of annoying, but people be like, ‘Let…

Why Celtics holding Grizzlies under 100 points mattered

Why Celtics holding Grizzlies under 100 points mattered

Back-to-back blowout wins against Western Conference playoff-caliber teams is never a bad thing. Yes, the Grizzlies are a fringe playoff team in the West, but things would be a bit different if they were in the Eastern Conference — even though the Celtics’ 119-95 win on Wednesday might indicate otherwise. (For a complete recap of the Celtics’ win, click here.) Boston got offensive contributions from everyone throughout the night. Jayson Tatum (23 points) was in control until he strained his groin…

Jayson Tatum exits game vs. Memphis with groin injury

Jayson Tatum suffered an injury late in the third quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies. After missing a layup, he walked toward the Celtics’ bench, grabbing his right groin area. Pretty innocuous looking play when Jayson Tatum strained his groin but you can see him motioning to that area after retreating to the back with a trainer. pic.twitter.com/efFAI69AeF — Chris Forsberg (@ChrisForsberg_) January 23, 2020 Tatum left for the locker room as soon as Brad Stevens called timeout. After…

Brown out vs. Memphis, Williams to be evaluated in February

Brown out vs. Memphis, Williams to be evaluated in February

Kemba Walker will be good to go for Wednesday’s game against the Grizzlies. On Tuesday, He had been listed as probable due to left knee soreness, which kept him out of the Celtics’ loss to the Suns. Jaylen Brown, however, will not be available on Wednesday. He has a right ankle sprain. “Especially after the Lakers game, we have to continue to strive for that type of game every night, regardless of who’s on the court,” Marcus Smart said after…

Grizzlies Pick: Celtics get to see why asset is losing value

Grizzlies Pick: Celtics get to see why asset is losing value

As much as Ja Morant’s ascension toward stardom has been quick, Memphis doesn’t exactly bring the same type of buzz to Boston as the Lakers, Bucks or Sixers. But, the Celtics and Grizzlies are tied to one another, thanks to that once heavily coveted pick. Entering Wednesday’s game, Memphis is still a playoff team in Western Conference, so Boston’s Grizzlies pick still falls outside of the lottery for the 2020 NBA draft and would convey. San Antonio is right on…

Evansville dismisses McCarty with investigation ongoing

Evansville dismisses McCarty with investigation ongoing

Back on December 26, the University of Evansville placed men’s basketball coach and former Celtic Walter McCarty on administrative leave.

Evansville issued warnings to McCarty about his behavior last year. Throughout the process, the school received additional reports of his misconduct off the court. The investigation is still ongoing, but Evansville announced on Tuesday,…

More details about Delonte West incident surface

On Monday, Delonte West was seen in two jarring videos that surfaced on Twitter. Those close to the former Celtics guard expressed their concern over social media. Some called for the NBA to help. In one video, West is being attacked by another man. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, West and the other man “refused to cooperate with detectives” from the Prince George County Police Department. Neither West nor the other man is pressing charges, and it is…

Why Semi Ojeleye can handle big games despite spotty minutes

Why Semi Ojeleye can handle big games despite spotty minutes

One of several unexpected things that happened in Monday’s game against the Lakers: Semi Ojeleye (19:29) played more minutes than Daniel Theis (17:12). Now, Theis’ minute-count was more the result of Enes Kanter (24:05) getting a lot of play. But Ojeleye hasn’t exactly been the No. 3 player off Boston’s bench this year — Marcus Smart and Kanter being the two top guys. Though, if you look at the Celtics’ last 10 games, there have been three times where Ojeleye…

Celtics send message across NBA with blowout win over Lakers

Celtics send message across NBA with blowout win over Lakers

Things did not look good for the Celtics in the first couple minutes of Monday’s game. If it wasn’t for Gordon Hayward’s deep 3-pointer, followed by his and-1 soon after, the Lakers might’ve maintained their momentum. But Hayward stepped up when no one else could. It was almost as if everything that’s happened with him recently was nothing more than a bad dream. At least in terms of his scoring, Hayward’s play was at it’s loudest in the first, when…
