Drafting the Boston Celtics (Pt. 2)

Unless a major trade happens (fingers crossed!) Boston has 12 players under contract, not counting any of their rookies, meaning their roster has more or less taken shape.  The NBA hard-caps rosters at 15, so the Celtics have room to sign three rookies if they’d like, something I’m sure they’ll wait to do till the very last moment to have maximum trade flexibility. So, with...

Why The Celtics Should Hunker Down, Not Disrupt Asset Base

In theory, all 30 NBA teams are supposed to burst out of training camp and into opening night each year with two season-long goals in mind: 1) Win the championship, 2) Turn a profit. The only way they can hit both targets is with at least one-and preferably two or three-honest-to-goodness superstar under contract. Top-10 players make the improbable feel achievable. They symbolize...
