Gueschon Yabusele’s invisible season

Gueschon Yabusele’s invisible season

There just wasn’t an opportunity for Yabusele to contribute on the 2018-19 Boston Celtics Much like last year, it’s fairly difficult to write about Guerschon Yabusele’s season because, well, he didn’t really have much of one. After a rookie season in which he appeared in 33 games and played 235 minutes, Yabusele’s sophomore totals increased all the way to 41 games and 251 minutes in 2018-19. Limited primarily to Gino Time, there simply wasn’t much substance to this season for the 22-year-old forward. We all knew this was a likely course of events, to be fair. Yabusele is an...

Aron Baynes says his heart is ‘still in Boston’

At a charity event, the Boston big offered a few thoughts on his player option and free agency. Aaron Baynes loves being a Boston Celtic. But even the dedicated Australian big is choosing his words carefully when fielding questions about the offseason. At an event for the Shamrock Foundation, Baynes offered comments on his player option and the disappointment of the 2018-2019 season. MassLive’s John Karalis had the story. “I know my heart’s still here in Boston. I love Boston. It’s been great to my family,” Baynes said. “There’s no better place to play than TD Garden during...

Gordon Hayward and the Paul George roadmap to recovery

Gordon Hayward and the Paul George roadmap to recovery

To finish the final leg of his recovery race, Gordon Hayward and the Celtics may need to take cues from Paul George. By early March, Gordon Hayward was tired. In early March, the Boston Celtics were cooking. After a well-fêted flight to California, they went 3-1 on a trip through the Western Conference. Hayward looked solid. He went super efficient from the field against Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers. He hit a game-winner to take down the frisky Sacramento Kings. But Gordon Hayward was tired, not physically, but mentally. An inconsistent season was eating away at him. And the...

Kyrie Irving earns All-NBA Second Team selection

Irving garnered high honors Thursday by being named to the All-NBA Second Team. While much of the talk about Kyrie Irving has centered on his leadership cabilities and whether he will return next season to the Boston Celtics, there’s no questioning the talent he possesses on the floor as Irving was named to the All-NBA Second Team on Thursday. In his second season in Boston and coming off a knee injury, Irving started in 67 games and netted 23.8 points along with dishing out a career-high 6.9 assists per game in the regular season.

Could Danny Ainge pull off another series of trades to bring Boston another Big Three? The 2018-19 season ended in disappointment for the Boston Celtics. After much ballyhoo and hype to start the year, Boston floundered and got bounced in five games by the Milwaukee Bucks in the second round. But basketball never stops. Moments after tears fall at the end of one season, you dry your eyes and look forward to the next one.

Jayson Tatum continued his steady rise in sophomore season

Jayson Tatum continued his steady rise in sophomore season

Many people were upset that Jayson Tatum did not make a bigger jump into his second season, but the numbers show that he is still right on pace for greatness. Jayson Tatum entered his second season in the NBA with a world of confidence. He was coming off a strong playoff performance averaging 18.5 points. Tatum took over and was a major part of the Celtics’ success making it to the Eastern Conference Finals without Kyrie Irving or Gordon Hayward. Even as it was an unfortunate Game 7 result to Cleveland Cavaliers, Tatum still was able to end his rookie season on a personal high-note...

Marcus Smart named to All-Defensive 1st Team

Smart made the All-Defensive team for the first time in his career After years of wondering when, or if, it would happen, the NBA announced that Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart made the All-Defensive 1st Team for the 2018-19 season. This was Smart’s first career selection to the All-Defensive team. His appearance is the first for a Boston playe rto make the All-Defensive 1st Team since Avery Bradley in 2015-16. Smart started in a career-high 60 games this season and was regularly asked to guard the opponent’s best wing player. He delivered on a regular basis with a team-best defensive...

Don’t panic: Celtics’ youth movement is doing just fine

Marcus Smart and the Jays are still trending in the right direction. In what many will view as a lost season, the Boston Celtics’ young core took meaningful strides forward that deserve recognition. None of the young core of Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Marcus Smart have made “the leap” that people often expect high lottery picks to make, but that shouldn’t cause any panic over the team’s future. While the current roster is a little dysfunctional, my faith in the team’s direction is unwavering and my thoughts on the youth movement is unchanged. Let them grow together....

Gary Washburn gives his take only Terry Rozier’s Bizarre Media Tour (podcast)

Why is Rozier putting everyone seemingly on blast? By Evan Valenti If you haven’t checked Twitter lately then you’ve missed A TON of Terry Rozier content over the past couple of days. Scary Terry swaggered (real word) his way from one studio at ESPN to another. He was on “Get Up”, then “First Take”, then “Jaylen and Jacoby”, detailing the ups-and-downs of the frustrating Celtics season. More importantly, Rozier spoke about how much he sacrificed throughout the entire season. Take all the time you need to digest that idea. Done yet? Okay. That was the jumping-off point...
