Holiday season topic: What would you ask for from Santa?

Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via If you could have just one thing for this team, what would it be? Discussion topic time! If you could ask Santa for one thing for the Boston Celtics, what would it be? (Try to be specific and creative. We all want a banner, but how would we go about getting there?) Would it be a big trade? Perhaps for a big man? Would it be perfect health? Or at least for the core players? Would it be the development of any one player, like Robert Williams mastering defensive rotations or Romeo Langford becoming a knock-down shooter? Give us your Holiday...

NBA Rumors: Celtics Could Acquire Myles Turner For Package Centered On Grizzlies’ 2020 1st-Round Pick

NBA Rumors: Celtics Could Acquire Myles Turner For Package Centered On Grizzlies’ 2020 1st-Round Pick

Since the 2019 NBA offseason, rumors have been swirling around the Boston Celtics who are expected to find Al Horford’s replacement before the 2020 February NBA trade deadline. Though the Celtics have Enes Kanter, Daniel Theis, and Robert Williams, none of them could fill the hole Horford left on the defensive end of the floor. As of now, the Celtics are being linked to several defensive-minded big men, including Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers. According to ClutchPoints, the potential arrival of Turner to Boston would make the Celtics a more dangerous team in the 2019-20 NBA season....

Robert Williams’ prophetic passing

Robert Williams’ prophetic passing

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Is Robert Williams extremely impulsive or does he know where to pass before he catches the ball? Robert Williams passes are like love at first sight. I mean literally - he passes to the first guy he sees nearly every time. The Dimelord mostly makes his living as a rim-running center, but his best skill, in my opinion, is his ability to pass. In an increased role from last season, the rest of Williams’ game remains the same, if not slightly more refined. He’s playing six more minutes per game this year, but more importantly, he’s playing in every...

Must C’s: Marcus Smart does Marcus Smart things

Why the Celtics’ interior defense is better than advertised

Why the Celtics’ interior defense is better than advertised

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics have Enes Kanter, Robert Williams, Vincent Poirier, and Daniel Theis to play center. So who closes games at the five spot? Marcus Smart. Follow @taco_haus From the start, Boston’s interior defense looked doomed. The Celtics loaded up on centers to start their season in hopes of one or two sticking as solid rotation players. Daniel Theis, now in his third year with the team, has unsurprisingly emerged as one of them. Enes Kanter, to injury or otherwise, hasn’t impressed in the early going. Robert Williams has been a plus, but is still slow...
