    The passing of Bill Russell brought back a rush of memories of my attempt to obtain the basketball icon’s autograph in a place where few die-hard New York Knicks fans would have dared to enter. But I am getting ahead of the story. It was the spring of 1966. I was with a few friends at a Knicks-Boston Celtics game at the old Madison Square Garden on the west side of Eighth Ave. between 49th and 50th Sts. As a childhood autograph hound, I decided to try for some star basketball player signatures. I opted for the Celtics, rivals of my home team since they first met in 1946. Near the end of the game, I positioned myself at the bottom of the walkway off the court, a place where today’s MSG security guards would never allow fans to breach. As the game ended, the players rushed by, and then made a left turn down a long, dimly lit passageway to their dressing room. I got in front of Donald Arvid Nelson, the 6′6″ small forward who went on to...

It ended a terrific series between two evenly-matched teams, with the MVP vote close between Tatum and Jimmy Butler. Tatum wore a purple and gold No24 armband in honor of Bryant who died in a helicopter crash in January 2020. The two had worked out on a number of occasions and became close, with the Celtics star...
    The Tyler Herro watch continued into a second week, with the Miami Heat sixth man continuing to be listed as questionable for Sunday night’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics at FTX Arena. Asked after the morning shootaround if he had an update, coach Erik Spoelstra said, “I don’t,” with that the limit of the discussion. But center Bam Adebayo did not make it sound as if there was optimism in the locker room with Herro’s strained left groin. “He’s still taking his time,” Adebayo said. “It’s a sensitive injury. So, got to take his time.” Herro, the 2022 NBA Sixth Man of the Year, last played in the Heat’s May 21 Game 3 victory over the Celtics at TD Garden, when he closed 4 of 15 from the field in an uneven eight-point performance. He then sat out the following three games, in each case listed as questionable until being declared out shortly before game time. Herro had somewhat of a breakout performance in the series opener against the Celtics, when he closed with...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Celtics fans fell in love with Isaiah Thomas during his brief but impactful time with the team. The diminutive guard gave the franchise a huge jolt of energy when it needed it most, making Boston basketball exciting and fun to watch once again. When Thomas was traded away in the summer of 2017 as part of the Kyrie Irving deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, it was met with mixed emotions. Boston fans were obviously excited to be bringing in an absurdly talent player in Irving (remember that?), but it was a huge gut-punch that it came at the cost of Thomas, who had just put his career and livelihood on the line for the Celtics when he played through a hip injury during the postseason. He played through broken teeth and the death of his younger sister that postseason, both of which showed just how committed he was to the franchise.

    Getty Marcus Smart in his shooting motion as the Boston Celtics play the Oklahoma City Thunder. On the second night of a back-to-back, against a resilient Oklahoma City Thunder squad, the Boston Celtics almost lost in the final minutes. Despite dominating for long stretches of the contest, the Celtics once again found themselves clinging onto a flimsy lead down the stretch. Unlike some of their collapses from earlier in the season, such as their implosion against the Chicago Bulls in early November, the Celtics stood firm, squeaking out a victory against a team who have already registered big comeback wins this year. Led by a 33 point, 8 rebounds, 5 assist night from Jayson Tatum, the Celtics managed to put the final nails in the Thunder’s coffin with less than a minute remaining, after Udoka had emptied his bench and almost instantly came to regret it. We indeed witnessed a game of two halves, with the Celtics showing signs of tiredness following their high-intensity victory against the Los Angeles Lakers just 24 hours prior. “Lakers was a big...

Per league rules, Brown was placed into the league's Health and Safety Protocols for 10 days.  However, the 25-year-old said it sometimes feels like he has played "three games in one," according to ESPN's Tim Bontemps.  "I've noticed in the last couple of days, my body hasn't recovered the same in a sense" Brown told ESPN on Friday after practice.

    ESPN host and former NBA player Jay Williams has watched his basketball credibility get questioned throughout the last month. First, Williams was slammed by Kevin Durant, with the Brooklyn Nets star claiming the ESPN host fabricated a story for TV purposes. This week, Williams’ NBA clout is again under attack, after he sent a tweet congratulating Ime Udoka for becoming the Boston Celtics’ “first head coach of color.” Jay Williams has apparently never heard of Doc Rivers, Bill Russell, KC Jones, ML Carr and Tom Sanders pic.twitter.com/qiqOSrQlmT — Sports ReUp (@SportsReUp) June 23, 2021 One major problem with Williams’ tweet, the Celtics previously employed five head coaches of color, including Bill Russell, who became the NBA’s first Black head coach in 1966. Williams won’t be the first or last person to send an errant tweet, but instead of admitting the blunder, the ESPN host passed the blame off to a hacker. Thursday night on NBA Countdown, Jalen Rose roasted his colleague for the hacked excuse. After Williams called out Rose for poorly analyzing the Milwaukee Bucks defensive abilities, Rose...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Prior to the Celtics and the Nets tipping off Game 3 of their playoff series at TD Garden on Friday night, Celtics guard Jaylen Brown shared his powerful perspective on racism in Boston and the United States. Brown, who is out for the postseason after undergoing wrist surgery earlier this month, is now the third Boston player to speak out about racism in the city this week, following comments by Brooklyn guard Kyrie Irving on Tuesday. Irving, who is set to play in front of the Boston crowd for the first time since he left the Celtics to join the Nets, said after Tuesday night’s Game 2 win that he doesn’t want to hear any “subtle racism” from the Boston crowd. Both Marcus Smart and Tristan Thompson commented this week that they have heard racist remarks from Boston fans in the past. On Friday, Brown echoed his past comments that systematic racism needs to be addressed in Boston and around the United States, but does not like that the conversation is being centered around a basketball game....
    Getty Jaylen Brown #7 of the Boston Celtics looks to shoot over Miles Bridges #0 of the Charlotte Hornets in the fourth quarter during their game at Spectrum Center. Jaylen Brown just went off for 39 points — but the Boston Celtics still lost to an Oklahoma City Thunder team that hadn’t sniffed a victory since March. The Cal product is in the midst of a career season, posting personal bests in points (24.7), field goal percentage (49.3), 3-point percentage (40.1), assists (3.4) and steals (1.3) en route to his first-ever All-Star nod — yet, the team is in danger of earning their worst win/loss record since 2015. In other words, for all the great Brown has brought to the Cs lineup this season, it hasn’t exactly equated to sustained on-court success for the team. Of course, there are other factors at play here and were you to look at the scenario from another angle you could argue that Brown is one of the only things keeping Boston from completely divebombing into the dwellers of the Eastern Conference....
    BOSTON (CBS) — Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown has always approached his place in the public eye as being someone who’s much more than just a basketball player. Still young at just 24 years old, Brown has taken a significant step over the past year in becoming an outspoken voice against racial injustices in the United States. Brown took Monday night as an opportunity to do so, when he spoke to the media after the Celtics’ 116-115 win in Portland. He was asked about the recent police shooting in Minnesota — what the police called an accidental discharge of a firearm, which left Daunte Wright dead — as well as the voter suppression situation in his native Georgia.

    Getty Al Horford runs the floor during the 2019 NBA Playoffs as a member of the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics may have made multiple deals ahead of the NBA trade deadline — most notably acquiring Evan Fournier from the Orlando Magic — but GM Danny Ainge’s latest efforts may be better defined by the deals he didn’t do. Before the deadline hit, the Celtics had been linked to a number of playmaking big men. Aaron Gordon, John Collins and Harrison Barnes immediately come to mind. However, some fans in Beantown were clearly pining for an old favorite. Namely, Al Horford, who currently finds himself a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Just one week ago, Horford’s sister ignited a firestorm on social media when she tweeted out a picture of herself in a Boston Celtics t-shirt. In short order, a number of fans were loudly calling for his return. Despite the rabid response to the tweet, Horford wasn’t sent back to Boston before the deadline. But, clearly, his situation with the Thunder has changed nonetheless. According to...
    The Detroit Pistons’ first-round selection had a ridiculous game on Friday against the Boston Celtics. Back in November, the Detroit Pistons were a part of the massive three-team trade with the LA Clippers and Brooklyn Nets that was centered around Landry Shamet. In said massive transaction, the Pistons acquired the draft rights to the 19th overall pick, which was used on Saddiq Bey out of Villanova. He was one of the many pieces that ended up in Detroit, and as it turns out, the Pistons got themselves one hell of a player. During the Pistons’ 108-102 win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night, Bey scored a career-high 30 points off the bench and converted on seven straight 3-point attempts! In fact, Bey became the first rookie in NBA history to make at least seven 3-pointers without missing. Saddiq Bey scored a career-high 30 points off the bench in the Pistons win over the Celtics.

    By Matthew Geagan, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — Smallball is returning to the Celtics starting lineup. Not because Brad Stevens is ditching the two-big lineup that has been a disappointment thus far, but because the head coach really doesn’t have any other choice. With Robert Williams reportedly testing positive for COVID-19, and Tristan Thompson and Grant Williams out due to contact tracing, the Boston frontcourt is going to be extremely limited over the next seven days. Unless Stevens really wants to get nuts and start Daniel Theis and Tacko Fall, that double-big lineup ain’t happening again until that trio of bigs returns. That isn’t the worst news for the Celtics. The two-big lineup that features Thompson and Daniel Theis hasn’t had the desired effect over the first nine games of the season, with that pair of bigs sporting a minus-18.1 net rating in their 97 minutes on the floor together. It’s not great. And now Stevens will have to put the experiment on hold, and hope that he’s got enough size left elsewhere on the roster. Theis is still around...
    The formula that the Miami Heat had backed themselves into using throughout this postseason wasn’t exactly ideal. They were losing almost every first quarter, and winning almost every game anyway. It’s not a sustainable plan, and the Boston Celtics finally showed that in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals when they pulled off a wire-to-wire win over Miami, not letting the Heat put together their typical comeback. Game 4 of the East title series — with Miami still leading 2-1 — is Wednesday, and the Heat are insisting that there will be more urgency at the beginning.
