Open mailbag as we wrap up the Celtics’ season

Let’s wind down the Celtics season with an open mailbag. There are 10 games left in the Celtics season so it seems a good enough time to take inventory and gear up for the playoffs. Ask me your questions in the comments below and I’ll do what I can to get to as many of the questions as I feel like. For the moment I’d encourage you to leave the offseason questions till the offseason (when we’ll have many months to cover that ground). The team’s focus right now is on the postseason so let’s focus on that for now. Want to know my thoughts on matchups, seeds, rotations, and which...

Cashing in for a star: the curious parallels of the Celtics trade for KG and a potential deal for AD

Cashing in for a star: the curious parallels of the Celtics trade for KG and a potential deal for AD

Boston is positioned to once again trade young talent for a superstar, but should they? “I mean…I want KG, but giving up Al Jefferson, Gerald Green and picks is too much. I’d rather win with our guys.” That’s an exact post on a well-known basketball message board from 2007 when rumors broke that the Boston Celtics were considering trading for Kevin Garnett. The author of that comment wasn’t alone. Multiple posters agreed with that line of thinking. It’s an age-old dilemma, one that general managers and fans alike wrestle with: when do you push your chips forward and go all-in...

Thomas Robinson is a candidate for Celtics’ 15th roster spot

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. In Thomas Robinson’s case, it might be “try, try, try, try, try, try again.” After being claimed off waivers last weekend by the Maine Red Claws, Robinson hopes that his stint in the G-League clears a path for an NBA return with the Celtics. The Sacramento Kings made Robinson the 5th overall pick back in 2012, but the former Kansas Jayhawk struggled to find a home. In five seasons in the NBA, he also made stops in Houston, Portland, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Los Angeles. After spending a year in the Russian United League, he...

Discussion: Can the Celtics still get the 3rd seed?

Discussion: Can the Celtics still get the 3rd seed?

Or will the Celtics be stuck in the 4th or 5th seed series? The Celtics won 3 out of the 4 games against the Sixers this season, but the loss on Wednesday significantly hurt the Celtics chances of getting the 3 seed in the playoffs. With 10 games left in the regular season, the Celtics are running out of time to make up the 4 games that they trail the Sixers in the standings. In fact, they are still looking up at the Pacers a well. Boston does have two games remaining against Indiana, so they have every chance of pulling ahead and securing home court advantage in the 4-5 series. In...
