Kawhi Leonard Celtics Sixers NBA trade rumors: Boston versus Philly

Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge routinely goes against the grain of conventional thinking. While many Celtics fans are currently pointing out that Jaylen Brown’s stats through two seasons are actually better than Kawhi Leonard’s were through his first two years,...

Danny Picard: Celtics should push hard for Kawhi

What exactly does Kawhi Leonard want?   Everyone seems to think they know. They tell us he wants to play in Los Angeles. They remind us that he quit on his team in San Antonio, that he doesn’t want to play for the Spurs anymore.   They all know him so well, we might as well just...

Could Celtics Isaiah Thomas reunion be upon us in free agency?

Could the Celtics actually bring back Isaiah Thomas? If Danny Ainge truly is worried that Kyrie Irving will not re-sign in Boston next summer – then it becomes highly possible. Ainge and the Celtics like to get out ahead of these matters (see: why they traded Isaiah in the first place when...

LeBron to Lakers NBA rumors: Are Rockets officially out?

All signs continue to point toward LeBron James signing with the Lakers when NBA free agency begins in July, but other teams will surely try and persuade LeBron to come to their city between now and then. It sure seems as though the Cavaliers believe hope is not lost on LeBron re-upping with them...

Danny Picard: Celtics do not owe Kyrie anything

Kyrie Irving is a smart guy. He thinks ahead. He seems very calculated in his decision making.   Those aren’t bad qualities to have as an NBA point guard. Those are also not bad qualities to have if you’re an elite NBA point guard who can opt out of his contract and become a free...

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving is slated to become a free agent during the summer of 2019 after revealing that he would not sign a contract extension with the team. That's good news for the New York Knicks.  The 26-year-old, who was traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the...

Is new Celtics Anthony Davis NBA trade rumor buzz legit?

Anthony Davis has long been mentioned in Celtics NBA trade rumors given that the C’s still have a treasure-trove of assets and that Boston has been “one player away” from being able to legitimately compete with Golden State for a title. Several media members that are tied-in to...

Danny Picard: LeBron to Celtics not as crazy as you think

No, I don’t think it’s crazy. In fact, it makes too much sense.   LeBron James to Boston. Make it happen.   When NBA free agency begins, it’ll be James’ decision. Does he stick with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year, $35.6 million player option, or does he...

Ranking the Top NBA free agents this summer - free agency list

Before the NBA Finals can even end, media and fans alike have been speculating whether LeBron James will remain with the Cleveland Cavaliers or leave “The Land” once again to sign with another franchise. But King James is just one of many intriguing free agent stories heading into this...

Why Lakers LeBron NBA trade rumors are heating up

By process of elimination, the Los Angeles Lakers are now the favorites to land LeBron James in NBA free agency. Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd recently said a source told him that there is “no perfect option” for LeBron in free agency as the Lakers, Cavaliers, Rockets and Sixers all...

Are Celtics Kawhi Leonard NBA trade rumors about to get real?

Celtics boss Danny Ainge has been on record as saying that he was only going to “tinker” with the Boston roster this offseason. Pretty sure he said that last year as well and he would up overhauling half the roster. So, with Ainge you never really know. Even when things were rolling...

NBA: Celtics hate and what team will LeBron play for next season?

The Celtics were slighted in the release of Westgate Las Vegas’ odds to win the 2019 NBA title. The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets have the best odds – which is not entirely surprising - with the Warriors at 5/4 and the Rockets at 7/2. But the Philadelphia 76ers, who the...

NBA Mock Draft Rumors: Sixers make trade Luka Doncic falls

Our latest 2018 NBA Mock Draft looks at rumors that the Sixers may make a trade and that Luka Doncic could fall in the draft. There will be a riot outside of Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix if the Suns do not take DeAndre Ayton with the first pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. This means that...

A Celtics NBA title win in 2019 is no slam dunk

So that was fun. But not entirely satisfying.   Celtics fans earned the right to get greedy over the past month - as Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown played like they were seasoned vets in the playoffs, Al Horford (mostly) showed up on offense, and Brad Stevens cemented himself as the best...

Are Celtics ready to bury LeBron and the Cavs?

Is this it for LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers? Or will King James and his Cavs defend their home court against the Boston Celtics and force a Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals? We’ll find out Friday night, when the Cavs host the Celtics in Game 6, as they’re down 3-2 in the...

Will Celtics get LeBron the beast or LeBron the quitter?

We’ve been here before with LeBron. In the 2012 playoffs, LeBron’s Heat had lost the first two games they played at TD Garden and the Celtics had done a good job of at least containing the best player in basketball early in the series. Then, in Game 6 – he went off. LeBron shot...

Celtics need Garden version of Terry Rozier in Game 5

In many ways, Terry Rozier is this year’s Boston Celtics team personified.  He’s taken the opportunity presented to him due to injuries to his teammates and really run with it, proving a good amount of people wrong along the way. Rozier went from a relatively unknown...

Free Celtics Cavaliers live stream link of NBA Game 5

Can LeBron James will the Cleveland Cavaliers to knotting up the Eastern Conference Finals at two games apiece? Or will the Celtics head back to Boston with a commanding 3-1 series lead in tow? We’ll find out Monday night, when King James and the Cavs host the Celtics in Game 4 live from...

The best NBA basketball players of all-time - Top 10 ever

I’ve trotted out this list several times over the past few years and it typically ends with my email box and Twitter account flooded with hate mail and tweets. So before all you LeBron and Wilt Chamberlain honks go crazy again, let me explain my decisions as to why they are Nos. 3 and Nos. 8...

Are the Celtics about to go down in flames?

Maybe, just maybe the Celtics are about to show their age and go down in flames in this series. I just doubt it. Game 3 of this series was very predictable. OK, fine. A 30-point loss was a bit much. But NBA history strongly suggested that LeBron James wasn’t going to lose a Game 3 at home...
