CELTICS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Boston Celtics: Future bright after playoff exit

The Boston Celtics surprising trip to the playoffs is over as quickly as it could have been.  LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers made short work of Brad Stevens’ young crew, defeating the Celtics in four straight games.  It’s a disappointing end to an otherwise successful year for Boston.  The team rebounded from a dismal 2013-14 campaign, even as general manager Danny...

Kevin Love injury a powerful argument for playoff reform

If you were to ask 100 people in a room about the length of the NBA’s first-round playoff series, you’d get a reasonable number of responses advocating a return to the best-of-five format: This Love/Olynyk incident is a reminder of why the NBA needs to go back to best-of-5. A meaningless game led to an unnecessary injury. — Llama Buffalo Fan (@chrisskreager) April 26...

Watch Cavs’ Smith with the cheap hit on Celtics’ Crowder

Well this was a cheap hit. During the Cavs-Celtics game, things were getting heated when JR Smith decided Jae Crowder didn’t need his teeth anymore and cracked his jaw in with a cheap shot. http://cdn2.streamable.com/video/28100520ec4311e48d494f5296805112.webm Aside from getting tossed, needless to say, Smith will definitely be receiving a hefty fine and possible suspension...

JR Smith 'nervous as hell' about possible suspension

BOSTON — J.R. Smith’s status for the start of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ second-round playoff series is in question after he was ejected in Sunday’s Game 4 win over the Boston Celtics.

Evan Turner defends Kelly Olynyk for Kevin Love arm crank

Most people are in agreement that Kelly Olynyk fouled Kevin Love intentionally and committed a dirty or “bush league” play on him during Game 4 of the Cavaliers-Celtics series on Sunday.

Roy Hibbert: Boston Celtics a potential trade suitor?

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY SportsRoy Hibbert had yet another disappointing season in 2014-15 with the Indiana Pacers, but he still showed the ability to be one of the NBA’s top post defenders. Indiana doesn’t sound like they’re too interested in keeping Hibbert around next season, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them look to trade him assuming he chooses to opt in to his...
